My free printable first day of school signs are a quick way to date your back to school photo this year. They have that popular school chalkboard sign look, but you didn’t have to write them out! Grade signs make the perfect photo prop, and it’s a handy way to mark the year in the photo album. I love looking back through these photos and seeing the changes from year to year.
I can’t believe summer break is already over and school is starting! If you’re looking for cuter back to school ideas, don’t miss this first day of school teacher gifts. It is a thoughtful way to welcome teachers back to school and celebrate the occasion.
BACK TO School Signs For ALL GRADES
All the grades are included in the printable signs download below. You can choose to print only the pages you need! The back to school photo is a big deal at our house! Is it part of your family tradition? Each year we use these first day of school signs, with chalkboard lettering showcasing a brand new grade, to capture that special 1st day each year.

HOW TO PRINT
Simply download and print these back-to-school signs out on heavy cardstock. For best quality copies, I recommend downloading the file and attaching them in an email to your local copy shop like Office Max or Kinkos, and just tell them which pages you need to be printed. You can also upload the file right on the Office Depot website and have them printed and then pick them up
If the file is too big to email, you may need to send the individual pages. To do that, simply download and choose page; next, select print, and in the print options, select print to PDF. It will give you the prompt to save as PDF, rather than printing on your own printer. After you save the file, email the PDF to the copy shop. Finally, cut off the white border (if you like), and you are ready for the first day of school photos!
Our back to school signs through the years!
Wow, Bella really changed quickly over the years! This printable first day of school picture signs help us remember all the growth we have seen – it goes by so fast.
We started this school year with a bunch of firsts. It was the first day of middle school, and she got her braces!
I really wanted a picture of the two of these kids together. Let me tell you that Bradley is an ornery one! It wasn’t until later that he confessed that they held the signs upside down! I hadn’t even noticed when I was taking the picture!

Hello Krista, at the beginning of the post is the 2020-2021 signs and also another option for virtual learning. Let me know if you have trouble downloading them.
The signs say 2013-2014???????
Janey, so sorry it should be all fixed now. Let me know if you have troubles.
I tried to download your 2020-2021 school signs, however, the link takes me to the virtual school sign only. I would love to be able to download the signs again for this new school year.
Perfect timing! My son is about to start school for the first time soon!
Super cute!! Can’t start the first day of school without signs!
