Fresh notebooks, new clothes, and high hopes… the first day of school is a big day! It’s a sweet tradition to capture that moment for posterity, so the gals at HowDoesShe and I thought you might like some free printable signs to make your photos that much more fun this year!

If you have wee ones, just imagine how wonderful a full collection of photos would be! Or you can start the tradition at any age – we’ve got you covered from Preschool, Nursery School, or Pre-K all the way up through the first day of college.
