Free Printable No Cold Callers Sign

Free Printable No Cold Callers Sign
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, L'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. If you buy through the link, I will receive a small commission, at no cost to you.

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!

I have something like this on my door. They take no notice of it at all!

I need something like this to stop junk mail! We get so many takeaway leaflets every single day!

My father-in-law used to have a similar sign up and when people did still call he would tell them to wait and a minute and go away. He would then come back with a copy of the Yellow Pages and tell them he found them what they needed and showed them the page full of English tutors!

I have a sign on my door and it is surprisingly effective - just wish it worked for the phone too
