We know its tough right now for the smaller print shops and many have closed their doors to the public because of the Coronavirus. There are still ways to run your business and sell products online. You can sell your print services online and ship the finished products to your customers. Run a marketing campaign to your local businesses and health agencies letting them know the services you can provide. You can reach out to them via email or phone calls and offer discounts to help them as well as you. There are still many products needed for those businesses that are essential, here’s some ideas to get you started.
You can offer floor stickers to help stores and medical facilities that are open. They can place the stickers on the floor to help people stay 6’ apart as mandated by the government. These are great for anyplace where people need to be reminded to stay apart. Let businesses know they can get creative and offer friendly floor decals that not only help keep the 6’ apart rule but also encourage kindness and positive thoughts.
Banners & Signage
You can offer a number of banners and signage for businesses and facilities that are open such as medical and parks. Public messaging will be key for many places to let people know tips about the virus and guide them of the store or facilities guidelines. Banners, folding floor signs and other types of signage and stands can offer flexibility to businesses for proper placement of needing signage and information based on certain areas of a store or hospital. You can not only offer printing for these types of products but also stands and displays as well as an upsell to the printed items.
Window Decals & Signage
Most businesses can benefit from window signage to let customer know about hours, or ensure potential customer know they are still open for business in some form. Most stores have reduced their hours and staff and all food service places still encourage business for carry out. These businesses can greatly benefit from window signage and should be a target for your print store campaigns.
Pamphlets & Brochures
Handing these out can let patrons know more about the spread of the virus, the symptoms and potential cures as well as how important it is to stay home and apart until it has been deemed that the virus is no longer a threat to the larger population.
Labels & Packaging
Why not offer businesses the opportunity for creative packing such as individual antibacterial wipes, personal hand sanitizer labels & creative ways to package products such as rubber gloves and health care tips. Restaurants can also take advantage of packaging right now as the ones that are still open must offer carry out and delivery so right now is a great time to market creative packaging ideas to restaurants.
