The title lettering is black with a white border and over the fruit with the subtitle underneath the blue square. The back panel is black and says It's canning time in blue letters. There is a treasure chest spilling lids into a blue square with jars on the bottom left in an arc to the right on to the black background. In the blue square it says A treasure chest of protection Kerr jars caps and lids. The A is red and the rest of the words are black. They are all surrounded by a white border.

Pages 8, 9, 12-14 have advertisements for jars at the bottom of the page. Pages 10 - 11 discuss the perfect seal and positive proof of a seal. The back end page lists other booklets available.
