Back to school may look different this year, but our traditions can be the same!

How to Print the Free Printable Back to School Signs

Printing is easy! First, download your signs by clicking on the ones you need below. The files are PDFs, sized at 8.5 by 11 inches so you can print on a standard letter size piece of paper. I suggest card-stock, so it isn’t flimsy while your child is trying to hold it for a picture. You can also trim it down to 8 by 10 and pop it in an inexpensive frame to fancy it up, or make it sturdy if you don’t have card-stock on hand.

If you don’t have color ink at home, or it’s just not that great, it’s very cheap to get it printed at a local office store.
