If you live in the U.K., you could just buy gingham lids at the Preserve Shop.
Another traditional variation is the brown kraft paper cover with red and white baker's twine. And check out these DARLING tags from the Cottage Industrialist (love that name!). If you're wanting to host a canning party, they have a link to Paper Crave who is offering this free download for your event!
Something a bit more professional in mind? You can have that, too, with a number of various options.
Thanks to advances in home printing, you can create custom looking labels right in your own kitchen. And without a lot of fuss. Templates are all over the internet! Here's a couple of options that will make you ohhh and ahhh.... no charge.

Too bad I don't live in England... I'd have a new favorite shop! Burgon & Ball labels their jars permanently, but oh so chic! Gets the brain going for ideas, does it not? I wonder if vinyl lettering would wash off or go through the water bath canner?

You have to laugh at this one... and appreciate it at the same time. The label really does say it all!
How will you dress your jars?
