Baking Canister Labels Free PSD File!

Free PSD Baking Canister Labels

I never could have guessed the amount of interest my little canister labels project (posted back in February) would generate. I have been happily inundated with comments and questions ever since!

One stand-out request has been for me to share the original PSD (Photoshop Data File). For those of you who don’t know what the heck that is, you probably don’t have Photoshop, so unfortunately it won’t be much good to you anyways, though if, like me, your brain likes to know stuff, you can read more about PSD files here. Basically, it’s a freely editable version of my labels.

Well, I’m pleased to announce that you’ve all finally worn me down :-) So for everyone lucky enough to have Photoshop you can now download my baking canister labels in PSD format for FREE below! If you’re not fortunate enough to have Photoshop you can also download the printable PDF version below. Oh, and if you happened to miss my original tutorial for applying the labels you can view that here.

The downloadable zip file comprises two documents; one for CS users (which contains neat folders of grouped layers) and one for Elements users (which contains a gazillion layers though is folder free, thus compatible).

Because I’m a big computer nerd now, I decided to do some research on PSD’s for the purpose of this post, and aren’t all you Elements users glad I’m such a geek? Otherwise, I never would have discovered that Elements doesn’t support layers grouped in folders and I never would have created a special folder-free document just for you – you can hug me later :-)

To conserve my labels in their original form, ensure you have installed all three free fonts listed below.

Have fun!

    Ok, I’m not smart enought to be a geek or a nerd, so please tell me if I uploaded the file, could I just print them out for use or do I have to have photoshop to make it work?

  4. AWESOME!! These are really great. Worked perfectly on my Elements program! Thank you!! I can’t wait to label up some jars.

      Hi Andrea
      I used waterslide decal paper with a special coating for a professional finish though you could also use standard waterslide decal paper or even Avery clear labels.
      You can view my original post with instructions here:

        About 4 years ago, I ordered about 10 different labels from you for my new house. Everyone who comes into my kitchen now will ask about the canisters on my counter with the cool labels. I loved it so much that I had one duplicated as a wall transfer for my laundry room. It has the definition of “Laundry Room” for the wall. Thanks!

  6. Thanks for these little lovelies!!

    Hi Kristine,

    Thank you for posting this project. I love it. For the past few months I pondered purchasing a plastic canister set from Macy’s but found myself resistant. Now I know why. This project is just right for my pantry. I have ordered 22 jars ( from CHEFS and crate and barrel), made my labels, and re-read your instructions over and over. Leading up to a question.
    My concern is that when I place the glass jars in the oven they will shatter. Did you take any steps to prevent this? I noticed on the IKEA site they posted this instruction:

    Care instructions
    If you want to sterilize the jar with hot water, preheat the jar first with warm tap water. This prevents the glass from cracking.

    Did you experience any problems during the baking stage that lead to breakage or cracking?
    Are there any preparatory steps to take?


    • The Painted Hive says:

      Hi Kit
      I had no problems at all with the baking process and took no preparatory steps. The jars were only in a moderately hot oven for a few minutes. I haven’t heard from anyone else who has had a problem with this step either.
      Good luck :-)

    Hi there,

    i love these canisters where can i get these from??

    • Hi Lis
      Plain glass clip-top canisters can be bought from lots of places. Mine are from Ikea however dollar and kitchen stores commonly have them too. If you’re after the labels you can purchase them through my little online store here or you can make your own by following my tutorial here.
