  6. I found your link referencing the downloadable Griffith Lab Spice Jar labels but could only print the image vs download and upload to word to customize the labels Would you be able to send me the link please so I can take advantage of your efforts and reduce mine. THANKS

    1. Hi Rachel. Sorry for the difficulty – I will investigate. In the meantime I’ve sent an email directly to you with the jpeg of the labels attached. It’s a fairly large, high resolution file so it may get diverted to your spam folder so please check there if you don’t receive it in a timely manner. Thanks much! Happy labeling!
