Do your colleagues disturb you a bit too much during the day? Do the neighbours come round when the children have gone to bed or do you want to avoid being disturbed during a meeting? Whatever the reason, a “Do not disturb” sign is just what you need. Create peace and quiet with an attractive sign with a clear message – do not disturb!
There are many occasions when silence is required. All ages need time to themselves. From babies to the very oldest.
Do not disturb sign – Some examples
Young person’s room
Do not disturb! Knock! I’m in charge here! The sign to a young person’s room is usually full of challenges about not disturbing the inhabitant. Let the youngster design their own sign – this will usually be a popular move.
Do not disturb! Exam/interview in progress
This type of sign is often more effective if you explain why quiet is required. If it indicates there is an exam in progress, people will be more inclined to comply with the message of the sign than if the sign just says “Please do not disturb”. This is true, whatever the reason for the sign.
Do not disturb! Sleeping children
As the parent of young children, you will not want to be disturbed during the night time routine. A doorbell or knock on the door may be enough to force you to start again from scratch. Hanging up a personalised sign with the message “do not disturb” can effectively stop that happening.
A similar sign is “Do not disturb – sleeping baby”, which can be hung on a pram so that everyone in the vicinity can be extra careful.
Do not Disturb
A classic sign found in hotels. A must in all hotel rooms so that guests can hang the sign on the door handle to show that cleaning staff should not disturb the occupants.
