Freezer meals are a lifesaver on busy nights, and they’re great to give to new moms and families that are going through a tough time, but if you don’t label things well, you won’t remember what you have or how to heat it up.

Free Freezer Meal Labels

That’s where these labels come in. Just fill one out when you make something for the freezer, slap it on the outside of the container, and you’ll have all the important details at your fingertips when you decide to pull it back out of the freezer. And since these labels are pretty, your freezer meals will look more giftable than ever before.

Note: A lot of you asked for an editable version of these labels, so I went back and added that feature. If you don’t want to hand write your labels, just type in all your info before you hit print. You can even save the file with your additions. This is a handy feature, if you do OAMC or like to make the same freezer meals over and over again. Just type in the information for each recipe once, and save it. Then, you’ll be able to print more labels whenever you need them. And if you like to gift people with meals, this is a great way to make sure the labels will be easy to read.

These labels are designed to print on full-sheet label paper. If you have an inkjet printer, use Avery 8165. If you have a laser printer, use Avery 5265

Many web browsers have their own built-in PDF viewers, but they tend to be buggy. If you’re having trouble printing or editing one of our printables, click here for help.

  1. Could you make these editable so that we could make and save for different recipes? I have terrible handwriting and this would be very helpful.
    Thanks

    • Yep. I could probably make that happen. It might take me a little while to get to that though. This month is crazy busy.

    • Hi Christina,

      I finally got a chance to rework these so their editable. Hope you enjoy them 🙂

  2. These are nice! I am trying to eat through my freezer right now and sometimes have trouble identifying whether something is meat sauce, meatballs, or Goulash lol.

  3. jsut what I could use – I forget what I put in the freezer! what type of labels do you use for these – does the printer print all the colors or is there a template already done somewhere?

    thanks!

  4. Hi Sue, I use full-sheet mailing labels to print these (and any of my other sticker-type labels). Walmart seems to have the best price on label paper. All of the label colors are built into the file that I shared. Just stick blank label sheets in your printer, and they’ll come out looking just like the ones seen here.

  5. I love your labels and you site. Did you ever make these labels editable? I would love to be able to type the info in instead of writing it. Im in a freezer group meal club and make 4 meals twice a month so this would help greatly. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Jackie,

      A lot of the labels on the site are editable, but I’m afraid I haven’t gotten around to reworking these yet. It is on my to-do list, though 🙂

    • Hi Jackie,

      It took me about a million years to get around to it, but I’m happy to say the freezer meal labels are now editable. Enjoy!

  6. How do they stand up on non-waterproof paper when the meal is thawed out? I worry about it coming off of freezer bags, or being unreadable.

    • Hi Kelsey,

      They seem to hold up fine. You can actually buy water-proof label paper (it’s vinyl instead of paper). There’s not much of a difference in price between that and regular label paper.

  7. Do you get 6 labels out of on sheet and you just cut them out? I would think one 8×11 label would be a bit much for a label.

  8. I want to be able to look in my chest freezer and find what i want without having to dig thru everything. The only way i know how to organize is to put all like things in same spot like frozen e
    Veggies, frozen fruits, casserole dishes etc. So if i could find different color bags big enough i could find things easy by knowing what color my item would be in!! Even if i had to have a color chart to stick to my freezer. Can you make something like this?
