I often get asked what label size will fit a certain ounce canning jar. Mason canning jars can have either regular mouth or wide mouth lids. Please refer to the chart below to determine what size you need for your lids.
When adding to the FRONT of the glass, 2" or 2.5" round labels will work on regular 8 oz half pint jelly jars or larger jars. A 1.5" label will fit the FRONT of a 4 oz Ball jar or on the LID of a 1.5 oz favor jar. The 1.5" label will NOT work on the front of the small 1.5 oz favor jars because it will be too large.
There are different styles and brands of canning jars, so sizes vary on height and width of the glass. There are also many jars available that aren't specifically for canning food. Please measure your jars to know which label size you need.
This is a breakdown of how many labels come on each printed sheet in my shop.
1.5 inch for 1.5oz small favor jar lids (30 labels per sheet)
2 inch for regular mouth jar lids (20 labels per sheet)
2.5 inch for wide mouth jar lids (12 labels per sheet)

Canning Jar Cloth Topper Sizes
My fabric cloth toppers are pre-cut to 6" circles since that works on most canning jar sizes. The 6" toppers will fit on regular mouth or wide mouth jars. About half of the fabric will show around the edges of a wide mouth jar compared to a regular mouth jar. Please refer to the chart below showing how toppers look on various sized jars.
Since 4 oz jars are short, a lot of the jar's contents will get covered up with the 6" fabric cloth. Some people prefer to have a 5" cloth topper for the shorter jars so they can see more of the jam. A 4" cloth topper works well on the 1.5 oz favor jars.
I'm able to fulfill special orders for smaller cloth toppers. Availability will depend on which fabric you need and how soon you need it. I precut most of my fabric to 6", so I may not have extra fabric in stock to cut down. If you need a custom cloth topper order, please
