I was just wondering - could you just make a cute one on your computer (hey that way it's even personalised and everything) and just run it down to Kinkos and laminate it? I know to laminate a poster board is $20. So unless you're looking for a sign larger than that - it wouldn't be more than that to make.

The problem you'll be running into is that people forget about all the things peanuts are in and how it affects you. For example, the dog treat - I'm sure she didn't even think - dog eat treat, dog LICK friend, friend break out in hives. I'm trying to be more aware and I wouldn't have thought of it. So on your sign, you'd need something like, "No outside food, drink, or dog food" or something of the like.

I've seen another poster who said that (I think it was a friend of hers) tried to give her EA (Egg Allergy) DD a cake because the friend didn't realize that cakes have EGGS in them. People who don't deal with this, don't think this through.

But whatever you come up with I'm sure will be helpful. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

(this last one has signs that say "Do not brings food into this home. Someone with food allergies lives here. Thank you for your consideration". I can't link right to that product but if you scroll down you can see it.)

I got ours at Allergicchild.com
You'll find it under classroom signs on the website, It looks great and really gets the message across, even stating "it's cool to be nut free". Anyway its worth taking a look to see if its what you had in mind...
