Hi everybody, it’s Ryan again! How has my time at Smudge already come to an end? The summer blew by, and I don’t think I’ve been to the beach nearly enough. At least I managed to make it back to Maine to see my family a few times.

When I can’t make it home, my sisters are always good about sending me pictures of what my nieces and nephews are up to. I realize that this kind of instant contact and sharing is something that wasn’t possible when I was a kid. Fortunately, technology has advanced so much that I never feel like I’m out of the loop whether it comes to big events like birthdays or the more regular stuff like family outings and play dates.

First Day of School Signs | Smudge InkFor my last blog post, I wanted to design something that would celebrate a milestone and be something to share with your own family and friends. For those of you who have kids, the first day of school is a pretty big deal and makes a great photo op!

These First Day of School photo signs will make capturing the big day extra special. Each one has the same fun, school-themed pattern in the background, but a different color palette depending on grade (kindergarten through 5th grade).

First Day of Second Grade Sign | Smudge InkAll you need to do is print on regular 8.5” x 11” paper and fill in the blanks (or have your kids practice their handwriting if they already know how). Just leave enough time to snap the photo before the bus shows up!
