Labeling your canned food properly is very important. Normally I label my lids with a sharpie pen after the jars are processed and cooled. This method is quick and easy and requires no removal work when the goods have been eaten. Just throw the lid away, you're suppose to anyways. I don't like labeling my jars with sticky labels because those label take some serious elbow grease to get them off. Granted you could put the sticker on the lid and that would solve the problem.
Then I came across the idea of making custom labels at Lelo in Noppo Homemade. These labels sit on the lid and can be held in place by the screw band. While I wouldn't go so far as labeling all of my jars this way (too much work!), I think it's a lovely idea when you are planning to give away canned food as a gift.
So last night I got to work, I designed six different labels for you to downland for free. Simply click the links below and this will bring you to the goggle groups page. Click on the PDF link, download and print. Each page has 6 labels and are sized for a wide mouth lid (86 mm).
Let me know which is your favorite and if you have any requests or suggestions. I'm thinking a wobble lid label would be cute. Let see if I can convince Cindy to design one (it would be good advertising - wink wink).
