First Day of School Signs – Free Printables for the Perfect Photos

Spread the love

To commemorate back to school time, I created First Day of School signs and I’m sharing them with you!

My kids are heading back to school soon and I am beyond excited! Summer break is great but I love Back to School time and can’t wait for those first day of school pictures to blow up my Instagram feed.

First Day of School Signs

Simply click on the file below you need, download, print and place in a frame or laminate. Then get ready for all those happy pictures.

For best results print on photo paper for that nice shiny finish. If you’re not using a frame, print on card stock. It will be a thicker paper for your kids to hold for the photo. If you are using a frame, a good tip is to remove the glass part for the photo. Often times the glass will reflect on the camera and you won’t capture the sign as well as without it.

I’ve been using these signs since I made them years ago and love it! It’s a fun little tradition with my kids and it gets us all excited for back to school.

My biggest tip for the best first day of school picture is do them the day before! Don’t add more stress to your morning by trying to get the perfect photo on that first day. Try doing it the day before (or even a few days before) for a smooth photo session. Tell your kids they’re doing a practice run and you’ll have plenty of time to capture that special photo.

Trust me, once you try it my way, you’ll never do it on that actual first day ever again.

Prepare for the last day now and check out my Last Day of School Signs!

Wishing you all a happy back to school time and I can’t wait to see all those adorable pictures of your kiddos on social media. If you use my printable I’d love for you to tag me so I can see it! Find me on Facebook and Instagram.
