    I can't find the blank labels, I've made mandarin jam, fig jam and plum and love to make christmas gifts out of them with the labels would be so nice. Thanks

    Here's how to get around the error message. Click on "download". You'll get the following error message: A drawing error occurred. Click on OK to get rid of the error message. You should now have a toolbar with a "Find" dropdown box. Click on the down arrow and select "Open Full Reader Search" from the dropdown menu to download the images.

    It's just a blank pdf page. And who do I contact, I order the Martha Stewart Mags awhile back and never got the mags or the Free Totes as an ordering gift.

    I believe the original PDF needs to be re-saved by the creator and uploaded again for us to successfully download it.

    I've tried every pc I have and still getting a error

  • 29 Aug, 2010

    how can I print just the blank labels?

  • 14 Aug, 2010

    I also got the "drawing error" message. I did a "refresh" (or "reload", depending on your browser) and the message went away and the file came up.

  • 25 Jul, 2010

    I am getting a "drawing error" message. Please help

  • 24 Feb, 2010

    readjust your "view" to 100%

  • 24 Feb, 2010

    I got the error also. :-(

  • 24 Feb, 2010

    I am unable to download these. There is a drawing error and presents a blank page. Please fix this glich, I love these clip art pages.Thanks.

  • 23 Feb, 2010

    unable to even bring up the labels as there is an adobe error at the start that reads "a drawing error has occurred". then once its completely downloaded there is NOTHING on the screen. a little help please?

  • 24 Apr, 2009

    We hear you! We have updated the template to include a blank label so you can write in your own jam names.

  • 6 Nov, 2008

    I would very much appreciate someone from Martha Stewart Living addressing the issue of how to remove the jam names on these labels so we can put in whatever type of jam name, or whatever we would like . The label graphic is absolutely beautiful and it's too bad some of us are unable to use as is. Obviously a lot of us are technically challenged.

  • 1 Nov, 2008

    I was able to change the template and put 5 labels per page.

    I would certainly hope that someone is monitoring what comments are being made...but maybe I'm naive.

  • 31 Oct, 2008

    These are really lovely, but in addition to the not quite common jam names use, why is there not a 4th label (perhaps blank) on that sheet? I hate seeing waste of label paper like that. Sometimes there seems to be a real disconnect between the great design and the practical use. btw, printed as sized the labels are 4.5" across.

  • 30 Oct, 2008

    If you buy the circle labels at Staples or another office supply you can create your own labels easily. They tell you what template number to use in Word and you can add your own words and pictures.

  • 30 Oct, 2008

    I tried using Acrobat Professional 7, wasn't able to change the the names of the jams, but I was able to delete the names so that it is just the tree.

  • 30 Oct, 2008

    I don't know what jvallas is talking about I down loaded the labels and printed them out with no problem and they look very nice. I can't wait to use them.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    This is a fabulous idea. Yes Martha, thank you for the great ideas on these. It will definitely save a lot of time and trouble. At least it will for me.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    Thank you Martha Stewart for these lovely labels. I will use them for an upcoming SPCA Fall Fair for my donations. I love your show and all the interesting ideas you give.

    sorry - looks like that URL didn't show up completely. You'll have to "stitch" together these two lines:

    more generic labels located here (but for the side of the jar, not the top):

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    Ditto for all the other comments. Please leave blank.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    This is a beutiful but please, editors, omit the name of these fancy jams and leave blank so we can write or copy a font with our own jam name.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    I was happy to see the label pattern but must agree with several others about the kind of jams and jellies,I make Peach,apple,strawberry,pear, applesauce,ect nothing so exciting as the ones mentioned but they sound great!

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    This is a nice idea but what good is it if you make normal jam flavors?

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    Rosannadanajo and all others: You can purchase a box of circle lables at Staples. I purchased a spice rack with cute jars that had labels to stick on the lids. There were pre-printed labels and of course, many were not the spices I would ever buy or use -- so I purchased the circle labels, copied the font the preprinted ones had and labeled my jars with the names of my spices.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    Who ever heard of those jams? Can you come up with one that we can add the name of the fruit flavor to the label? I make strawberry and blueberry and peach preserves and would love to have attractive labels that I can name.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    these are attractive labels. Are there any other types of jam on labels, and if so are they available?

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    How do I change the type of jam
    printed on the label? I couldn't get the
    backspace to erase the wording.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    I'd suggest this: print a copy of the template, use whiteout on the names, and then either photocopy or scan into a .pdf document that you can print at your leisure. You might not end up with a curved line to follow when writing, but at least you do end up with space to write in.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    I agree. I very much like the idea of placing the label on the lid. Especially when most of the lids are not beautiful. I do wish that this template had not had the names filled in, but instead had contained a curved line to write on so we could write our own names in the same location.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    It's a great idea to put the label on the disposable part of a canning lid instead of on the jar...since labels don't lay flat on embossed jars and you're "stuck" with cleaning it off when the contents are gone. These templates are decorative and I might use them if there was a way to modify the typed contents. For now I'll just use the location idea and my own stamps for decoration.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    I suggest that the designers of this idea make a variety of generic labels without names that can be used for a variety of jarred "stuff"... The idea is good, just too specific to be useful if one doesn't want to make that type of jam or whatever.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    Try "using" your head then "the7gerbers". It's a great idea and jars can hold more than jam...ya figure?

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    No you are not missing anything. 3 labels for jams that practically no one is making or giving this Christmas. Nothing "normal" we can use.

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    These are so nice and professional looking. Does anyone know what type of paper to use so it will not smear and is water repellant?

  • 29 Oct, 2008

    I'm only seeing a few labels, and none are anything normal like strawberry or raspberry. Am I missing something?

    The .pdf seems to be popping up for me just fine, Lamont. Make sure you have the most recent version of Adobe Reader installed on your computer.

  • 12 Jun, 2008

    Would love to make labels for my Strawberry Jam and have tried several times to download your labels, but can't seem to be able to get in to the site. Any suggestions surely would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.....Nancy
