I’m so excited about today’s contributor post from Jo from Zuer Designs because this project was a very fun collaboration between Jo and myself. I cannot tell you just how amazed I am with Jo’s hand lettering, which you can see in these fun free printable pantry labels. If you get the chance, be sure and check out her work/custom designs on her website and Instagram here.
Today, Jo is sharing her beautiful free printable pantry labels, which I used in my baking cabinet/pantry in the images.
To keep this post from being too long, we have broken down this project into two posts. This post today, Jo is sharing her beautiful labels and how to print them. You can get to our second post on all the baking cabinet sources, details and tips for organizing by clicking the image directly below or here:
Hi everyone! So glad to be back again for my March contribution. This month is super exciting, not only because it’s my birthday month, but because I have these awesome free printable pantry labels that I hand lettered for you!
These labels are hand lettered in a modern loopy font (similar to the hokey pokey style of custom lettering you can order from my website!). There is a label for almost everything you could ever have in your pantry that needs labeling! From flour, to spices, to coffee and baking sprinkles, I’m sure you’ll find it
We have found that it’s the best to print these labels onto Silhouette clear sticker sheets (amazon affiliate link). You can buy a two-pack of the Silhouette labels (8 sheets in each pack) on Amazon here. You don’t have to have a silhouette machine to use these sheets and will work on standard printers.
STEPS to PRINT
- Click on the link and download the image of the sheet of labels below that you want and save it to your “pictures” file on your hard drive. If you have a Mac, you’ll hit control and right click to save to your pictures.
- Go into your pictures file/photo editing software and open up the image file just like you would normally go to print a photo from your computer.
- Load your silhouette clear sheets into the printer but be sure and do a test run first on paper (make sure you have more than 50% ink).
- After you hit the print or print preview button, go into your advanced printer settings/image quality or printer set up and choose the “Best” or “High Quality” print quality. This is very important and will make big difference on the level of ink used on the sticker sheets. All printers “conserve” ink and by default, printers are set to use the minimum amount of ink. Because we are printing bold black ink on slick paper, if the best quality setting is not used, the font will come out faint on this particular type silhouette sticker paper.
