Earlier this week I noticed that Target already has their aisles of school supplies and backpacks out (!), so I thought – it’s time to make this year’s first day of school photo signs! Why not be super early and super prepared? (Maybe I’m turning over a new leaf.) : ) So here they are, the free printable signs for back to school 2016 – ready for you to download and print!

Free printable first day of school photo signs for 2016!

The printable file includes signs for Pre-K, Preschool, Nursery School, and Kindergarten, plus 1st through 12th grades. There’s also a “First Day of Primary” sign for Canadian kids! And just in case, I’ve also included a general “First Day of School” sign. Every sign comes in four colors – pink, blue, green, and purple – so your little ones can each choose their favorite color.

    Hard to believe that back to school signs are up this early in July! But, I guess it's a good way for moms to get their shopping done sooner! Such great printables for those first day of school shots!

    I've loved using your printables in years past.
    I've signed up with my email so I can print them for my kids' first day tomorrow but I'm not received an email back.
    I'd really appreciate some help.
