"No Soliciting" Vinyl Decal Sign

I have a super easy project today for ya. 
We get SOOOOOO many solicitors in our neighborhood. It drives me bonkers! 
No, I don't need my carpets cleaned, I don't want to take your survey, and I already have cable so I don't want to switch. 

I was so tired of hearing our doorbell ring from these people (and ignoring them) that I finally made a "No Soliciting" sign to put on our storm door. 


Ready to know how I did it?

I just whipped open my Silhouette software and got to designing.
I played around with the fonts until I had something that I liked and used a frame to dress it up a little and make it a little more substantial so it would be noticable.

Once I had what I liked, I cut it out using white outdoor vinyl.

I made sure to clean my glass before applying the vinyl to my storm door.

I placed it just below our door handle so when someone walks up, it would be noticable if they were to press our doorbell. 

So far, it is working like a charm and it is FABULOUS!

Do you have a lot of solicitors that knock on your door?

  1. Your sign looks great. I live in the country so no solicitors, thank goodness! They have to really want something to make the drive out on gravel.

  2. I like this! I'd have probably reversed the image and put it on the inside of the glass. I'm contemplating something similar for the storm door on my enclosed porch that says "use the inside door" since our doorbell doesn't work.

  3. I was going to do that but it gets so hot between our storm door and main door, I just opted for it on the outside. It is outdoor vinyl so it will last. I had to put vinyl under our doorbell that says "press firmly" because if you don't press it hard, it barely makes a sound.

  4. I finally broke down some months ago and made my own sign with a large dragon on the front which says; ' No More Solicitors. . . . The Dragon Is Full.' What can I say; had to add some humor to my door sign.
