Ten seconds with Google led me to this:

It's a vinyl sticker you can order in different sizes up to 30", or higher if you want to custom-order it. Lots of colors too.

What's the best way to wedge a door shut to keep invaders out? My wife and I plan to use our bedroom as a "safe room" if there's a home invasion or burglary.
