Porch Appeal: Printable No Soliciting Sign

Say "no thank you" nice and pretty!

We finally did it. We finally had to put a "no soliciting" sign on our porch, near the doorbell. We have been getting a lot of solicitors at our house lately and, frankly, it has become annoying. Sorry if you happen to have a job that calls for door to door production, but we have had enough.

We love the free printable sign we found over at Anything But Perfect! It really gets the message across in a nice and pretty way don't you think?

We had a old black frame that had the glass missing and we realized it would be the perfect frame to hang our sign in.

We took a black piece of card stock, cut it to fit the frame, cut out the no soliciting sign, used some roll on glue and applied it to the black card stock and put it in the frame.

To hang the frame on the house we used a 3M tape product so that it would not damage the wall if we wanted to remove it.

If you would like to hang a no soliciting sign on your porch, there are four color choices to choose from. Click on the link above to get yours.

Hopefully we won't have to point out to someone who comes to our house to "read the sign".

We sure give those who go door to door a lot of credit. It has to be hard to be turned down and have doors shut in the face more times than not.

We choose the green colored sign to go with our house color and the black frame ties in with our black planter.

So if you would rather not be bothered with solicitors, 
make up a nice pretty sign and hang it on your porch, and hopefully they will read it !
Be inspired. Get creative!

Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child;
The rod of correction will drive it far from him.
Proverbs 22:15

  1. Love Love Love this! Thanks for sharing! I am going to print one of these shortly!

  2. Oh I Love this and I NEED this... Like you, we've been getting a lot of solicitors lately too and it IS annoying.. now I just have to figure out how to make it weather proof and attach it to my siding. Any suggestions? Thanks
    Robyn :)

  3. This is so much prettier than the black and gold plaques you can buy.

    Your house numbers are really neat, too. What is the background made from because it see lots of speckles. It's a very fun porch colour!

  4. Your sign is so pretty and it is so kind of you to offer the printables. Hope others will have good luck with it...we have a sign on our door (not as pretty as yours!) and in this bad economy it sure does not discourage solicitors. They argue with us that they are not soliciting and then try to go on with their argument! It makes me feel horrible and angry at the same time for having to turn them away. They are working hard at a bad occupation but honestly, there are no manners involved when they blatantly ignore my polite sign. It's very sad....

  5. I love these! Very cute! They look great framed.

    Make sure you stop by and share this at my Flaunt It Friday link party.
    Can't wait to see more posts.


  6. Love this! We need one of these SO badly! Thanks for sharing with us this week!

    Take care,


  7. That's a great sign! We get so many solicitors - ugh. We do have a {ugly} no solicitors sign up, but they still knock and ring the bell! ::sigh:: Thanks for sharing these!

  8. hi Kristin- I made one too! I added your name and a link to your project. It should go live on Tuesday! Thanks for the inspiration..

  9. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. I put the No Soliciting Sign, on my front door since it has an adhesive backing. It works well as I have not been bothered by anyone, especially considering it is during a political season. THANKS for sharing!!!!
