Whether you sell tasty items at farmers markets or you jar treats for your family as a hobby, we are going to show you some creative ways to label your Mason jar goods.
Why label your jars?
Well, if you’re selling items for your business, it’s imperative to do so. You want your customers to come back week after week to find you at your farmers market to buy more of your goods. If you’re making items for family and friends, labeling is a nice touch that makes your goods even more special.
What should you put on your labels?
First off, you need a logo. You can easily create a basic one on Onlinelabels.com’s Maestro Label Designer or if you already have one upload yours on the website and then pop it onto the label.
Secondly, and especially if you sell your food goods, you’ll need to put any FDA requirements on the label, such as ingredients and nutritional information. (Click here if you’d like to use our free nutrition label generator.)
Third, you need your website, Facebook page, Instagram feed or Twitter account information so your customers (a.k.a. family) can follow your adventures when you cook or make your goods.
What kinds of labels should you use?
Personally, I really like the weatherproof labels for food goods. The ink doesn’t run off of these labels when it comes in contact with water, salsa or even homemade spaghetti sauce. They also have a nice gloss finish to them that will make your mason jars stand out among the other farmers market vendors.
Another type of label that I really like is the tag that you can string onto the jar. I think it gives the Mason jar an extra homemade touch that customers really are looking for when shopping at the farmers market.
