Sign Language

Here's a statement piece we can get behind! Hang or prop this fill-in-the-blank sign in an office, dorm or home to bust bad habits and deflect unwelcome articles in your personal space. A tough, elastic band holds objects in place that help finish the sentence. Drop cell phones, candy or other daily vices to keep your place free from offenders.

Now, if only we could figure out how to prop an old favorite: "No boys allowed" ... What would you slide behind the elastic band?

Each sign sold individually.

        Got one for Christmas for my husband and another for a teacher at my daughters school. I wish I could have afforded to get more of them for more teachers. My daughter got her cell phone taken away and I think this is a perfect item for home, school or the office.

            Love this item for doing the obvious for my teens while they study. While recently studying for mid-term finals they would hand me their phones/iTouchs to hold so they wouldn't get distracted. So this was a perfect gift for those times. I only ordered one at the time as wasn't sure how I would like the item. I plan to order 2 more, so each of my 3 teenagers has their own. A cute & cleaver way for a mother to remind a teen to set aside their distractions during their studying. Have recommended this to several parent friends.

                      I bought this sign for my brother, who is a middle school teacher. I loved it because as the school bans whatever the "hot" item is at the time, he can stick it in the sign!

                        I have a friend with a "bad list" and this would be perfect for him. And this better be a decent size for $18.

                        Great way to communicate prohibited activities etc. It would be even better if it came with miniturized "charms" of bigger stuff like a television, computer, video game units and even a car... love it!

                        It would be great at the office or home. I could get my point across quickly. The price would be better at around $12.

                        I find this item very comical and could see some very unique uses for this. I would put a shoe in it and put it by our front door because when we entertain I'm constantly and gently remind people to please remove their shoes...this would be a comical way of saying it.

                        I would definitely buy this for our medical office- please include a cardboard mock up of a cell phone. People are so rude and annoying when they talk on a cell phone in the waiting room or exam room. We don't want to hear their conversations.

                        Full of possibilities. Wish it came with a YES sign. That would get people scratching. No diagonal on the circle, (maybe it's loose and hanging out on the sign somewhere). Id buy the pair, say $25.

                        I agree with another commenter that they should have smaller examples of TVs. computers. etc. - but a faux cell phone/camera is necessary - No one is going to leave one unattended as a "statement" and you wouldn't want an old cell phone, it would just look tacky.

                        Fun idea but fairly basic (looks like a craft project). But add magnetic images to attach to the sign and enhance the whimsy. Then increase the price point and you might have a good idea worth the price.

                        Love it. I want to get one for each of my teacher friends.

                        a bit too pricey

                        Re the size, I am guessing about 5x8. As for the "boy" sign, just cut out a generic male silhouette, or use a photograph. But again, this is priced about double what it should be.

                        I like the ability to make your own "NO...." sign, not too expensive, good for gifts...can use over and over again, etc.

                        I've seen posters like these signs in schools. They make a good statement fora private office.

                        How clever! Kids would love this as much as parents, and of course kids in dorm rooms. Love the cell phone idea.

                        It'd be better is the sign were metal.

                        Cute idea, but really only applicable to a limited audience.

                        LOVE IT! Every teacher I know would want at least two of these. However, I agree with the person who said that they should be sold in PAIRS for $18.

                        too expensive, and with a computer and color printer you can print your own sign
