Back to School Bus Frame

by Chan Vu, Jul 24 2017

Every August, my social media feed is filled with back to school photos of my family and friends' kids. It's a new year with many new promising beginnings. That is why documenting their first day back to school is so important. But after the photo is shared, wouldn't it be great to print those photos and frame it around the house? A yellow back to school bus frame is definitely going to be the conversation piece.
