2023-2024 Printable First Day of School Signs

Hi Remodelaholics! For those who don’t know me, my name is Michelle and I’m the editor of a creative lifestyle blog called Elegance & Enchantment and I also run a stationery/print shop called Enchanted Prints. Regular readers, you may remember some of the recent projects I’ve shared including these BBQ Invitations and the Art Prints I designed for #deckthewalls week.

While I’m sad that we will be saying goodbye to summer in the coming months, I’m excited to share some new download printables that will make going back to school just a little more fun for the new school year.

I’m all about documenting every moment and take entirely too many photos. Am I the only one who is constantly pushing the limits of their phone storage?

While I don’t have kiddos of my own, if I did, you better bet that the first day of school would turn into a full on photoshoot. Maybe it’s better that I don’t…my kitty cats already hate me for taking so many photos of them!

For those of you who do have kids heading back to school next month, and plan on getting snap happy with your camera, these signs will make the perfect addition to those first day of school pictures.

I’ve set you up with a set of 16 different printables, to cover everything from the first day of preschool through middle school to 12th grade of high school. The PDF file also includes a homeschool option, plus a reader suggested that the first day of school is the first day of freedom for parents, so I added that as well!

AND, by popular demand, with the year editable file, I’ve included a bonus file that includes another 14 classes/schools for a total of 30 options! (See the full list of what’s included here.)

Each sign is set up to print on 8.5 x 11 paper. Pre-filled signs for the current year include crop lines for an 8×10 print to pop in a photo frame; year-editable signs are full-page printables (no trimming) to fit in a document frame.
