Free Printable Door Hangers
Click on any of the thumbnails below to download a full-size pdf of the printable door hanger design. Once you've printed it, glue it onto a piece of card and cut around the outline. Cereal box cardboard is about the right stiffness, but any sort of cardboard should do.
Depending on the size of door-knob, you can leave the top of the hanger as a loop rather than a hook. It will be stronger if you leave it as a loop. You could also make double-sided door hangers with two different designs. Perfect for loved ones with multiple personality disorders (kidding).
For those of you with a creative streak, you can also download this blank Microsoft Word template , and design your own printable door hangers . Have fun with it! If you come up with some good designs, let me know! You could post them up here and share (or inflict) your sense of humour :-) I'll give you full credit.
By the way, to view and print the full size door hangers, or any of the pdf printable gag gifts on this page, you'll need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader (free) installed on your computer.
'Do not disturb. I'm disturbed enough already'
'Do not disturb. Hangover in progress'
'Out to lunch. If not back by 5, out for dinner also'
'Do not disturb. Officially retired, and I deserve my naps'
'All people enrich this office. Some by their arrival. And some by their departure.'
'Maid service requested' Can you imagine your wife's or mother's expression if you leave this on your door?
'Major nap in progress. Put it in a memo.' Hang this one on your bosses door
'Quiet! Teenager napping. Disturb at your own risk!'
Let's face it, making decisions is tough. At least, I think it is. Or maybe it isn't. I'm not sure. I need to think about it some more. Ask me again tomorrow.
Anyway, if you know someone who has difficulty making decisions, help them out with one of these handy decision cubes. All they need to do is roll the die and it will tell them what to do next. Click on a thumbnail to download a full-size pdf, and follow these instructions to assemble the cube .
It could be that my cubes are too tame for you. This is a family friendly site, after all. If you're itching for something more.. extreme , then why not download this blank decision cube template (Microsoft Word Format) and design your own extreme decision cube . Just don't let your mum see it.
Office Decision Cube : Has all sorts of high-productivity advice, like 'surf the web', 'play trash-can basketball', 'look busy as the boss walks past', 'take a coffee break', 'chat by the water cooler'. Oh, and the sixth side says 'Stop procrastinating. Deal with the work that's piling up'.
Senior's Decision Cube : This cube suggests relaxing activities like 'take a nap', 'drink tea'. It also features some senior-citizen sports, like 'go fishing', 'play golf', 'look for missing spectacles', and 'visit grandkids'.
If you don't think that looking for missing spectacles counts as a sport, then you should meet some of my relatives. They've turned it into an endurance sport.
