Printable Labels for Seasonings, Spices and Such ~ Pantry Series


"She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar."
~ Proverbs 31:14

Variety is said to be the spice of life but I think spices make the variety... A well maintained spice collection can turn you into a culinary queen. The secret is to actually use them :) They are truly more affordable when boughten in bulk, can be easily placed in recycled spice containers or jars and may be stored in a myriad of ways. Finish them off with some attractive labels and you are really cooking!


I personally like using mason jars with the plastic caps because they are easier to measure from. You can place the labels on the lids or you may glue them to the front of your jars. The idea is to keep the labels at eye level so that your spices and seasonings are quickly found. These labels can also be affixed to plastic storage containers with a glue stick. For instance, if you purchase seasoning packets in bulk and store them in Tupperware, then label your Tupperware. Be creative with what you have!


Some place their spices inside of a drawer. With a label on the lid, you can view your inventory at a glance. The wonderful part about pantry labels is that they bring everything together in a matching collection no matter how differently they are stored. Some of our food is in plastic containers, mason jars, recycled condiment jars while some are in Fido jars. However, it still looks nice and neat because of the unifying labels.



For a set of our pantry labels featuring "Seasonings, Spices and Such", simply download and/or print from this link HERE. You can either print them out on plain paper, cut to size and affix to your containers with glue (or decoupage) or print them out on sticker paper and cut to size. If you choose the first route, you may want to place a piece of packing tape or clear contact paper over each label to protect them. You may also be interested in our "Basic Pantry Labels" and our set for "Nuts and Seeds"

  2. Thank you for these beautiful labels! I buy in bulk and store in jars with the same lids you use so I can't wait to buy some labels and print these out. I've been using a magic marker on my lids, but these are much, much better. Thanks again and have a great day.
