Sharing is caring!

I have a slight problem. I’ve had reader requests for free printable back to school 1st day signs. The problem? I don’t have any cute children to hold the signs for pictures? Despite that hardship (and sadness…we’ve been trying for over 2 years), I went ahead and designed the signs.

There are four different designs below. Two are free printable chalkboard back to school signs. The other two include a variety of pastel and school images. I’ve put them in order of my most favorite to least favorite!

Instructions:
• Print options: regular paper works, but I suggest card stock or glossy photo paper. Be careful with writing on glossy photo paper, it’s easy to smear.
• All of the files are in pdf below. Or click on the image. It will open in a new window and you can either print directly or save to computer.
• The default size of these is full-page.

An alternative method- that I LOVE- is to put the sign in a picture frame. Then write on top of the glass with a dry-erase market. It gives it a beautiful frame and allows you to reuse the signs each year.

Here are the frames I love:

This is my  favorite out of the chalkboard free printable back to school signs! I love the crayons along the bottom. And the simpler design. If you’re having trouble writing over the blue/black, try using a white pencil.

While I don’t like this one quite as much, the bright blue banners make it easier to write on than the other one.
