Create Canning Labels That Make Your Product Stand Out

Make your product stand out on shelves and pantries with creative custom canning labels. Whether you own a manufacturing company or selling canned foods as a hobby, labels are an important requirement for your business.

Include ingredients, nutritional information, or a product photo. Your labels will play a big part in how people recognize and identify your product from others. Canning labels are also a great way to personalize homemade food items. Put labels on jams, jellies, pickles, and even preserved seafood.




How to Customize Canning Labels

Check out grocery aisles and you will surely find hundreds of canned food brands on the shelves. With the tough competition, your brand needs to rise above and draw attention from potential customers. This is where canning labels come in. Here are some easy steps on how you can customize your canning labels for your brand:

1. Determine the size of your label.
Your canning label depends on the size of your packaging. PrintRunner offers labels in a variety of dimensions up to 12” to 17”. To determine the size of your canning label, measure the diameter of your packaging, and choose the corresponding label size from our product calculator.

2. Select the shape you want.
You can opt for standard label shapes like rectangle, square, circle, and oval for a more traditional look. If you’re looking to make your products truly stand out and be unforgettable, try arch, hexagon, heart, starburst, and custom shapes.

3. Choose your material.
Canning labels are available in two materials: white paper sticker and white vinyl. White paper sticker comes with three (3) types of finishing—gloss, matte, and high gloss. White vinyl sticker is waterproof and UV-resistant. It comes with a high-gloss finish that makes designs pop out. All canning label materials are self-adhesive and stick to almost any smooth, dry surface.

Upload your artwork after selecting your specifications. If you do not have your artwork yet, you can create your file online using our Online Design Tool. You may also opt to buy the labels ahead and upload your artwork later.

Print custom cut-to-size can labels for your business. Great for hobbyists and entrepreneurs, canning labels are available in different quantities (from 25 to 50,000 pieces).



Canning Label FAQs

Yes, our labels adhere well to almost any smooth surface and can be used on can lids.

Only the matte white paper sticker is writable. It doesn’t have any gloss coating, so you can use ballpoint pens and markers to label your products with ease.

Although not all labels are waterproof, our materials are durable and will not lose their adhesive when cold. We highly recommend choosing waterproof white vinyl sticker for its extra durability.
