Labeling Spice Jars?

April 25, 2005

Wide variety of different types and sized of jars filled with spices on three shelves all with different types of labelsI have accumulated about 40 spice jars and want to have them displayed on my counter on one of those 3 tier expandable shelves. I want to label them, but my Dymo labels don't stick very well. They do fine on everything else. Any suggestions?

There are several types of labels that fit into your printer and I have found that those labels, Avery for example, stick well and stay on just about everything. I used them on babyfood jars in my husbands tool box where they stood up to the abuse test LOL. I love then because they come in all sorts of sizes and can be customized with a small picture or scroll etc to add that special girlie touch. All my labels in my retro kitchen match my cherry decor and i get tons of compliments!

What about taking a Sharpie marker and neatly writing the name of the spice right on the bottle? I use little Tupperware midgets for my spices and most of them I cannot see through. Tupperware used to sell labels and may still do so, but now as the labels are coming off (after 20 years) I am just writing on the containers.

Advertisement containers are behind a closed door in the cupboard. If yours are on the counter, I do like bunnyboo's idea!! I wonder if she could post a picture of her labels.

Your bottles probably have oils on them and dirt from the air. Wipe them down with a cotton ball saturated with rubbing alcohol. Change the cotton balls often so they will really clean your bottles. Let air dry and then label.

Martha Stewart's site had some beautiful spice labels some time back.

Alenkasprintables dot com has some free printable labels. I don't think there are any specifically for spices, but I think you can insert text on them before you print.

Avery itself ( has free things you can print, I can't say for sure on spice labels, though.
