This is the time of year when our thoughts turn toward the homemade, edible gifts that we'll soon be sharing with friends and family. A lovingly prepared treat deserves an equally thoughtful label, don't you think? On a recent visit to ReForm School in Los Angeles, we spotted these lovely canning and gift labels by Krank Press. The labels are hand-printed on a platen press in artist Elinor Nissley's Silver Lake garage, and would add a charming touch to homemade jams, baked goods, and other creations. We especially love the cheery red and blue "From The Kitchen Of" labels, which can be affixed to any package or under the lid of a mason jar.
