Whether you need to make round labels for the lids of artisan vinegar or you need Mason jar lid labels for your hand-crafted jams and jellies, it’s easy to create the design you envision. With Design & Print, you can personalize one of our predesigned templates or upload your own artwork. Then you simply finish your customization and proof.

No matter what printing option you decide on, just follow the steps below to make the round labels you’re looking for.

Step 1. Choose your template

Log into Design & Print and select the round template that matches the label size you are using. Then choose one of our professional designs or simply import your own artwork into a blank template.

You can also check out our design gallery which features some of our most popular templates you can customize your way or just to give you ideas and inspiration.

Choose a round label template to personalize for your lids

To upload your own artwork, select Upload a Complete Design in the top toolbar. A popup will appear and you can drag and drop or upload your artwork.

2. Add your product information

Once you are on the third tab of your Design & Print canvas, click on the Text button on the left toolbar to add and format text.

Click Add Curved Text to add content arched text on the top, bottom, or sides of your round labels. You can then type your information directly into the box that says Type Your Text Here and it will apply the curve automatically.

To move your curved text to the sides or bottom of your round label simply grab the handle at the top of the Rotate Curved Text Box and move it where you want it. You can also resize the text box and change the orientation of your curved text.

Rotate curved text around your lid labels

Use the Easy Text Fill to input all of your content into the existing template and then customize it your way. Move text to different locations, change fonts, or change background colors. In the template above, we changed the background color from the original beige to strawberry pink to complement the lid label.

  1. I tried to use the Presta 94508 template and for some reason the alignment got completely messed up; it was not as easy as it sounds; your templates seem like they would be label friendly but it does not look like it.

    1. Hi Smita,
      We are sorry your are having problems. Here are a few tips:

      Be sure you are using a genuine Avery product – non-Avery products are not optimized for our templates, and are not manufactured to our specifications.
      Test print. Print first on a sheet of plain paper to determine which direction to feed in your printer and to check your design and alignment.
      Print actual size (100%) – Never “Fit to Page.” If you’re printing a PDF, make sure the “Fit to Page” box is not checked. Otherwise, your printing will not be printed at the actual size and won’t align properly to the product.
      Printer settings. After you click Print, click on Properties or Preferences, or look for the “Print using system dialog” option where you’ll find Paper options.
      For laser printer labels – change the Paper Type to “Labels”
      Print adjustment. If your printer is shifting your design by a consistent amount of space, click the Make a Print Adjustment button in Step 4 (Preview & Print) in Avery Design & Print. This tool will allow you to nudge your entire design up, down, left or right by increments you determine. In Microsoft® Word, you can use the Ruler feature to adjust the placement of the rows and columns.
      You can also call our very helpful customer care team. They can even take control of your project and fix it for you. Call them at (800) 462-8379 and they can help you fix the issue you’re having.
