"Bitte Keine Werbung" sticker - where are they obtainable?

Does anyone know where I can get stickers that say this so I can put one on my mailbox?

Re: Bitte Keine Werbung

Have you thought about doing it yourself on your 'puter and printing them out - I don't think there is any official format?

However, I've been made aware of some good deals on stuff that I was in the market for, because of the ad. mags. --- and I've also bought stuff that I didn't really need, just because it was such a good deal, too.

Kiosk?

Failing that, copy the text of one that you've seen and stick it up on your letterbox. Worked for us in the past.

Alternative 2, Google it and print the image:



Or this one...

Mojado is right. Got mine from OBI. Unfortunately, it made absolutely no difference and we still get a load of recyling material delivered almost evey day.

Now that's interesting. After we got a sticker, unsolicited mail went down close to nil within a day and has remained there ever since.

Save your money. Set light to the people stuffing your mailbox instead.

It's hard to know where to buy these stickers because the makers are forbidden to advertise them

Depending on who's putting the stuff in your mailbox, a sticker won't make an iota of difference. Just live with it and worry about world peace.

Re: "Bitte Keine Werbung" sticker - where are they obtainable?

lol...we tried the old trick of printing it, writing it and sticking it on the mailbox. Apparently our attempt was shot down - perhaps it wasn't the official documentation the junk mail guy was looking for

We finally broke down and found a stationary/card shop near our local information center, bought it, posted it, and walah no more junk mail...

Apparently you have to pay for everything to actually make it official...You'd think I would have learned by now...

From all the posts above, it seems to be very variable depending where you live. I have a home made one and it has eliminated 99% of the junk mail. The one thing it doesn't seem to stop is the Migros and Coop "magazines", so maybe the postmen have instructions not to treat these as advertising ?

It is personally addressed to you, so he is obliged to deliver it. You get it once you applied for a one of their bonus card programs. Check with Coop/Migros how you can get rid of it.

Correct - I actually quite like getting those 2- good recipes, some interesting articles and many offers.

Went to our local Bookshop and they had a postcard with a detachable sticker with the 'pas de publicité' sign.

Often its not even worth getting those stickers they'll still throw in all kind of annoying advertisements.
