NEW! Printable First Day of School Signs (Updated for 2023-2024)

The summer has flown by! How can it be time for school to start again ALREADY?  It is seriously crazy how quickly time goes by and how quickly those kids grow up! (Okay, I know it’s only July, but I’m already seeing back to school sales and some schools in my area are starting early in August, so I wanted to share this now so all you prepared people can have it ahead of time 🙂 

One of our favorite ways to document our kids’ growth and to celebrate the start of school is by taking photos with those adorable first day of school signs, like this  first day of school sign (and the matching sign for the last day of school) that have been so popular in past years.

First Day of School Signs

This school year, we have partnered with Canon again to share a new style of back to school sign, plus updates for the 3 new ones we shared last year!

We have been so impressed with the Canon PIXMA TS9020 and how beautifully it prints our designs; it handles both color and black and white marvelously.  You can print these on regular printer paper, but we’d recommend cardstock since it’s thicker and will prevent the sign from bending and flopping over for your picture-perfect first day of school photos. We used the Canon matte photo paper.

We all love to be able to customize, so we have added this new design to be fully customizable. Start by choosing a design color: grey, blue, purple, red or yellow. Then simply fill in the form fields to fit each child and print! There is a place for your kiddo’s name, grade, age, what they want to be when they grow up, their school name and the date of their first day of school. This will make for a great comparison with their last day of school photo.

  1. Hi. I’d really like to use the fillable sign. I have a Mac and it seems that when I download the file, the fonts are changed and unchangeable. I am admittedly not tech savvy. Is there a way to download a Mac version that keeps the font sizes and styles as you have them shown?


      1. I’m getting ready for our last day of school photos…and I used the bunting one in September. Have you posted the last day signs yet??

  2. I used the fillable design for the first day of school and would love to use it for the last day of school. I checked the last day of school post but sadly, it’s not there. I’d really love to have it.


  3. Hello, I used this printable last year and LOVED them!! I’d really like to use them again this year, will there be a 2018-2019 update?

  4. Can you post an updated version of the current school year 2018-2019? I love these, but cant change the date.
