Spice jar labels

Many months ago, I bought a set of 30 spice jars, and figured out settings to get a nice engrave on the lids. The problem is, they are not clear in the gloomy cabinet, and despite keeping them in alphabetical order, it bugged me that they weren’t as clear as I had hoped.

So I finally bit the bullet, and bought a sheet of 0.05" clear acrylic from Home Depot this morning (it’s sold as anti-glare picture frame “glass substitute”), and reverse-engraved labels for them. Metallic gold, white, engrave, satin black. Very happy with the result!

(I’ve been working on a GF-made replacement for my tiered storage rack, stay tuned…)

That’s very nice! I have been wanting to reorganize our spices (currently in a wall rack, in a cupboard and on the counter), and had been thinking of labeling the tops of the jars & putting them in a drawer…I really like how yours came out…thank you also for linking to the material!

I’d link to the jars but they are no longer available. Very happy with them, however…

Nice! Looking forward to seeing the whole project.

Would a stain or an oil Sharpie adhere to the original lasering?

Looks great. No fun to have to hunt for a spice.

Hope to see your replacement rack soon!

The right jar has a paint marker in the engrave, I just couldn’t get it to show up as well as I had hoped.

When I first saw this I thought it said Space Jars… I wondered what is a Space Jar, I may want one. Needles to say I was a little disappointed when I reread the title and found out they were not Space Jars. They are however nice Spice Jars :smile:

Space jars are for storing your Space Jam in.

Thank you. I’ll be here all week.
