Using custom decals to communicate COVID-19 safety messages

Arteest Signs Ltd.COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, communication is an essential component in keeping your customers, supplies, visitors and the community informed. Misinformation is one of our greatest enemies through these challenging times. While turning to provincial authorities such as Public Health Ontario is an important first step, businesses must do their part in keeping their customers accurately informed and up to date of their policies and procedures. Custom decals can help keep communication lines open, especially for essential services that continue to operate such as hospitals, construction, warehouses, take-out restaurants or grocery stores.

Floor, window, wall and door decals

Decals can be applied on floors, walls, windows or doors in an indoor space to communicate safety rules and remind people about social distancing norms. If you are looking to apply safety messages outdoors, decals are durable enough to be installed on sidewalks, concrete walls and pillars as well. If you are not sure where to start, here are some examples of businesses making efficient use of custom decals:

  • Retail stores can use window graphics to inform customers of temporary closures or modified hours;
  • If window space is unavailable, decals can be applied on doors to communicate updated hours or new safety practices in place;
  • Floor graphics are an excellent tool to manage line-ups and remind people to maintain at least a 6 foot distance at all times;
  • Warehouses can make use of wall graphics to guide workers.

As the status of the pandemic changes frequently, businesses may have to update messages frequently. Decals offer greater flexibility, as they can be easily interchanged as often as needed without damaging the surface. If you are considering solutions to keep your community informed, we are here to offer help.
