Free: Printable No Soliciting Sign

In the last few years my apartment complex has been plagued by unwanted guests. I've had several politicians ask for my vote, people of various religions trying to convert me, and countless people trying to sell me things I don’t need. After receiving 3 knocks in one day, I knew I had to stop the parade of endless intrusions. Grrrrr!

I first thought of making a wooden plaque and hanging it outside, but painting it by hand seemed a little daunting plus I didn't think it would last long against the elements. {Daydreaming about what I could make with a Silhouette}

Since I have a large pane of glass in my front door, I decided to hang a picture frame inside and avoid the issue of weatherproofing altogether. Once I had that part figured, I had to plan out what I wanted it to say. The sign had to welcome my friends and family, but also notify strangers in a nice way that they are unwelcome. Girl Scouts are the only exception, of course!

I've had my sign up for a few weeks now and so far it seems to be working because they no longer bother me!

  4. Nice piece of information!!! I purchased this No Soliciting Sign, to keep solicitors away from my door. This sticker is great because only the letters 'no solicitors' shows up on the door. The letters are bright and well defined and allow the color of the door to show through. Many of the signs at the local hardware store were large and bulky and stuck to the door with adhesives that I was hesitant to use. With this sign there is no damage to the door when I want to change the location of the sticker. My front door gets lots of direct sunlight and the sticker is still looks colorful. It has not faded from the sun. Prior to the sticker I was getting three or more solicitors a week. I have not had one come to the door since placing the sticker on. Keep on sharing!!!
