Do you mean "circulars" and not "ciruclars"
I'm guessing that you really are asking about sales handouts or solicitation, so how about -
Quote:
Ninguna solicitación, por favor

Someone who actually speaks Spanish may clean that up...

No round steering wheels please.

(presumably octagonal steering wheels are acceptable).

Now run it in the other direction.

No aviators circulars, please.

So carpet cleaning and gardening services are ok, you just don't want to be pestered by pilot training schools.

"flyer" and "circular" are the problem words - too many meanings.

Until a native spanish speaker writes in I'm going with DeltaMac's version, assuming "solicitation" in Spanish doesn't also refer to hookers.
