Custom Jar Label Printing for Your Products

Whether you are starting your own business or just fond of making homemade products for family and friends, adding a personal touch through personalized labels will help your products feel more special. Our custom jar labels are perfect for homemade jam, jelly, pickles, and other preserved products. You can use these to promote your brand or even as gift tags for special occasions or holidays.

PrintRunner offers custom jar label printing at affordable rates. Choose from a wide selection of sizes and shapes such as rectangle, square, oval, circle, hexagon, heart, and starburst, or go with custom shapes for a truly unique and standout look.

Our cut-to-size labels are printed on durable paper sticker cut and scored with lines for easy peeling, while our roll labels are wound on a 3” core that fits most label dispensers.

We use general purpose adhesive that can stick to almost any dry surface. You can also choose between matte or high gloss finish for your labels. Order from 25 to 100,000 and we can have them ready for shipping as soon as the next business day. Just navigate our calculator and either upload a design or create one from scratch to place an order.

Basic Design Tips for Custom Jar Labels

  • Design in CMYK if you’re using a professional design software. It’s more suitable for printing than RGB.
  • Use high-resolution images. Images must have a resolution of at least 300 dpi (dots per inch) to avoid blur. Keep in mind that most images found on the internet are low resolution and that PNG and GIF files can’t be used for high-quality printing. As a reference, our preferred file format at PrintRunner is PDF.
  • Make your logo as noticeable as possible. An attention-grabbing logo can do wonders for your brand awareness, so don’t be afraid to place it somewhere prominent or to make it larger.
  • Follow labeling regulations. If your jar labels are going to be used on food packaging, don’t forget to follow labeling regulations set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Check out their Food Labeling Guide for the complete details.


What Should You Include in Your Jar Labels?

If you are selling food items such as jams and cookies, practice transparency by providing the following information in your jar labels:


  • Name of your food product
  • Net weight or quantity
  • Manufacturer, distributor’s, or packer’s name and address
  • Nutrition facts such as serving size, total calories, cholesterol, fats, sodium, and more
  • List of ingredients in the descending order of the items’ predominance
  • Food allergen label to declare the presence of major food allergens such as milk, eggs, fish (e.g., bass, flounder, cod), Crustacean shellfish (e.g., crab, lobster, shrimp), tree nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans), peanuts, wheat, and soybeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I ordered First time using this company and I am happy with my order. My order was for a duplication of some labels I currently use, but a lot cheaper here. I uploaded a pdf of my current label with no problem. Upon review before submitting the order, I asked if the background could be processed darker. It was quick and accurate on my second review. I ordered and my order was received fast. Once received these were quality labels and actually look better than my originals.
