Try your local Homebuilders Association. Ours used to have bumper stickers like that. One said, "Make welfare as hard to get as building permits". "Measure twice, cut once, then call a carpenter".

Andy, you could go to a print shop (Fast Signs) and they can make you any sticker you want. I had them print me up some "208 Volt High Leg" stickers to put on my clip boards, in the cab of my truck, and 3 phase delta panels. I "smoked" a computer 2 years ago on a high leg and made the stickers as a constant reminder so hopefully I will never do it again.

I presume that was a computer that had a rare (cheap) 120-volt only power supply, or had the switch in the 120 volt position. All the good power supplies these days are auto-ranging from 100 to 250 volts, 50 or 60 Hz, and sold in all world markets.
