We have nothing against people who are trying to make an honest living, or spread the word about their religious or political beliefs, or who are collecting money for legitimate charities, but that doesn't mean we want them knocking on our door either.
No one enjoys being interrupted constantly by door-to-door solicitors pushing one thing or another. It is particularly annoying or disturbing when they are persistent, aggressive or threatening. Our homes should be a safe haven, and yet companies drop off crews of salespeople in our neighborhoods to knock on every door. These companies don't screen their salespeople for criminal records and in some cases entire crews are made up of people undergoing some kind of "rehabilitation." Also, it is quite common for thieves to pose as door-to-door solicitors to case homes for crimes of opportunity.
It is dangerous to open your door to strangers, no matter how innocent they might look. And it's safer as well as less aggravating if you can stop them from bothering you in the first place.
Many people put up a standard "No Soliciting" sign and then are dismayed to see how many solicitors simply ignore the sign and knock on the door or ring the bell anyway. If you ask solicitors why they ignore your sign, the most common answer is that they are "not selling anything" -- which indicates that they have no idea what "soliciting" means. Not surprising, given the average degree of literacy of those who solicit door-to-door.
Those solicitors who do know what soliciting means and choose to ignore your sign anyway, just don't have any respect or consideration for others. They'll typically smirk at you and tell you they've sold lots of whatever it is they're selling to people who had no soliciting signs on their doors. Many are taught to ignore the signs or are told that people who have no soliciting signs actually make the best prospects.
After years of frustration with the ignorance and selfishness of these cretins, we finally decided to see if we could design a "No Soliciting" sign that no one with an IQ above a lab rat could possibly ignore. The design of these signs was perfected through extensive field testing, with changes based on feedback from solicitors who ignored it, until finally the most effective combination of text and images was found. This design really works!
And it's attractive as well. Specifications:
How best to secure this No Soliciting Sign
These signs can be easily hung from a nail but we have heard from some people who were reordering that their signs were stolen. So unless you want to run the same risk, you should mount your sign securely. We recommend that you pre-drill one hole top and bottom and secure with a couple of Phillips head screws, while being careful not to over-tighten. Or you can simply attach your no soliciting sign with a generous helping of glue or calking.
