Communicate measures against coronavirus with printed matter

These are crazy times. The sun is shining outside and yet we are all inside more than ever. Working at home, learning at home, workout at home, communicating via Zoom, Houseparty and Teams…Luckily there is a better view ahead. Now the strict measures of the intelligent lockdown are eased, the Netherlands can go back to the old way of life bit by bit.  But this will (unfortunately) take some time.

In the meantime, we will have to adapt ourselves so we can keep a distance of 1.5 meters at all times. Shops, offices, schools, industry; everyone will have to take measures to ensure the right distance between people. Not too many people in one room, hygiene and keeping enough distance are among these measures. However, the concrete implementation of these measures is different for every organization. In order to make clear which measures are applicable within your company, it is important to communicate these clearly and visibly to the outside world. Together you can guarantee the safety of your employees, suppliers and customers. You can do this in many different ways.

Crush barrier with crush barrier cover

To still be able to enjoy a bit of the outdoors this summer, people are currently gardening to do some chores. The construction market and the garden center are now very popular, resulting in long queues. Crush barriers can ensure that people remain at a suitable distance in the neat line. With the corona measures printed on the crush barriers you can inform the visitor what awaits him/her inside.

Window stickers

Inform visitors before they walk into your store? Then communicate the measures that apply within your business via window stickers. Window stickers are often the first means of communication the visitor sees. This allows you to prepare them to enter your shop.

Floor stickers and floor tape

Do you have a business with narrow aisles and paths? Then you can guarantee the one and a half meters by not letting people walk in the opposite direction. If people don't pass each other, there is a greater chance that the 1,5 meters will remain intact. A walking route can be indicated by means of floor tape. Think for example of arrows pointing in the right direction. You can also have special floor stickers printed with text indicating where you can stand (for example in the queue to the checkout).

Safety vests

Ensuring the safety of your employees, for example in the supermarket? Have them wear a brightly colored safety vest. This makes the employees clearly visible. You can also have the safety vests printed with the corona-measures that apply within your organization. For example, you can include a text on the vest that indicates that the employee is willing to help, but at a distance of 1,5 meters.

Ceiling banners

Corona communication at eye level? Then use printed ceiling banners. Ceiling banners are very handy if, for example, you have a shop with full shelves. Ceiling banners are also a good addition to floor signing.                                     

The above tools are just a few examples of what you can have the corona measures printed on. Of course, you can also use flyers and posters. You can also order printed wristbands (translation: polsbandjes bedrukken) and hand them out to visitors upon entry. An example of these are silicone wristbands (translation: siliconen polsbandjes bedrukken). This way you can keep track of how many people are in the shop. The possibilities with printed matters are endless.
