I am not an antisocial person, honest, and I really don't want people to think I am. However, cold callers knocking at my door causes me a problem. The Husband works nights and, due to my mobility problems, I can take ages to get to the door. Sometimes the unwanted callers are VERY persistent. I think it's because we live in quite a remote area, so they assume that if the car is there, somebody is in. I do have a little issue with this though. Why do I have to answer the door, if I don't want to? They call at dinner time, Luke's bedtime, sometimes when I'm in the garden, so I don't hear them until they've got REALLY loud.
I've tried putting up 'No Cold Callers' signs, but they never seem to think it applies to them. So, I have designed one that I think covers all the bases, hopefully without looking grumpy or unwelcoming to genuine visitors. If you would like to help yourself to a printout you would be very welcome. I have included instructions to show how you can attach it to the outside of your door, using sticky-backed plastic.
To attach to the door, all you have to do is invest in some good quality sticky-backed plastic, unroll it and cut out a bit more than you need to cover your sign, leaving a small edge all the way around.
|Use Good Quality Sticky Back Plastic|
Unpeel it, leaving as much as you can still attached, then stick your sign face down in the middle of the sticky and stick the backing back down over it.
|Stick face down|
Turn it right way up and trim the edges neatly, so you have an overhang around the edge. Remove the backing and adhere to your front door in a prominent place.
|Attach to door at eye level!|
