A while back I wrote about Royal Mail's Delivery to Neighbour scheme. In case you missed the news, your postman may now deliver mail items that don't fit through your letterbox to a neighbour. If you don't get on with your neighbours you can opt out by obtaining a Neighbours Not Trusted sticker.
Of course I asked Royal Mail to send me one of the stickers. Not because I object to stuff being delivered to my neighbours but because I reckoned the sticker might be a great template for a Royal Mail 'No Unaddressed Mail' sticker. Having such a sticker would be a welcome replacement for the company's obnoxious Door-to-Door Opt-Out.
So... here it is:
As an aside, someone has contacted me to say Royal Mail is currently not sending out its 'Neighbours Not Trusted' stickers because of
quality control issues. It seems Royal Mail didn't realise that stickers for outdoor use should be screen printed - if they're not the colours will fade within weeks. If you don't want to wait until they've sorted out the problem you might want to print the sticker yourself:
Update (3 November 2012)
The 'Neighbours Not Trusted' stickers have now been redesigned and are available again.
Update (13 November 2012)
The person who contacted me about the problems with the stickers has now set up a petition calling on Government to cancel the 'Neighbours Not Trusted' scheme. (Please note I don't endorse the petition - I'm merely mentioning it for the benefit of those who are opposed to the scheme).
