Displaying your kids’ school portraits on your walls is one way of showing that you’re proud of their achievements. However, if you plan on doing that yearly—for their entire school life—then it surely wouldn’t be long before you run out of wall space. Fortunately, we’ve found a more space-saving and neat way to do so with this customized K-12 photo board.
Sold by Etsy shop ItsaPalletThing, this compact board allows you to hang your kid’s wallet size photos from kindergarten up to 12th grade. Made of pinewood board, it measures 11.25″ tall, 39″ wide and 0.25″ thick. It comes complete with a grade-level indicator, along with 13 metal clips where you can attach the photos. You can also ask them to include your kid’s name on top for a personal touch.

The shop also offers another variant which includes a slot for a Pre-K photo. It measures the same as the K-12 variant except it is three inches wider and comes with 14 metal clips. Both variants come with two sawtooth hangers on the back, so they’re ready for hanging upon delivery.
The board comes in a variety of finishes, including natural, ebony, dark walnut, grey, spec walnut and whitewashed. Meanwhile, you can also choose either silver or bronze for the clips and white, grey or black for the font color. All text on the board is hand-painted and hand-stenciled. So, keep in mind to choose contrasting colors for the board and the text.
Due to the handmade nature of the board, do note that no two signs will be alike. Likewise, the seller has noted that they make no attempt to hide or remove knots, cracks, nicks and other imperfections to preserve the wood’s natural beauty.
One happy customer rated it five stars and left a short but sweet review:
“Looks perfect. Thank you!”
