Printable Birthday Sign Photo Props
Whether you’re in a studio or just snapping a photo on your phone, a birthday photo shoot is a great tradition!
These printable birthday signs make it easy to have a simple photo prop every year as you are tracking how your child is growing.
It’s also fun to see what details make it into the photo — like that he’s 4 and loves the color red… and insists on wearing his shirt backwards.
Or use the fillable sign to write out a few of their favorites or least favorites, like a mini birthday infographic.
She’s 9 and loves cats and kittens… but she also loves music and audiobooks and not smiling for pictures. These details are important to remember!
To create your own easy birthday photo prop, just print the birthday sign set, and pop it in a frame.
You can also clip on a clipboard or tape on a canvas, or just print on cardstock so it can stand up a little bit on its own.
Then, take the picture. It doesn’t have to be perfect — let it be real! A picture is worth a thousand words, remember.
After your birthday photo shoot, the frame can be stored in the closet with other birthday decor, or with the wrapping paper… just tuck it away until the next birthday!
While you’re planning, check out these great birthday party ideas for little kids.
A couple of tips for a framed birthday sign prop:
- Use a frame with turn tabs — metal tabs will break off after only a couple switches (plus make your fingers hurt!).
- An 8.5×11 document frame means no trimming the printed birthday signs 😉
- Remove the glass from the frame to eliminate glare in photos and give enough space for all 18+ pages in the frame.
- Print the signs on regular printer paper, then put a sheet of white cardstock behind the front page to prevent the other pages from showing through.
