MakersLAB.TV S2E8 - COVID-19 Awareness Signs in High Demand During Pandemic for Signage Businesses

Last night the president briefed the media and SA citizens of the move to level 1. A few rules and regulations have been altered except for the need of social distancing, wearing masks and sanitizing hands.

The printing and signage business is flourishing as a result. Signage companies have added face masks, wall and floor signage, and stickers for hand sanitizer bottles to their production line.

The climax came about as soon as the government relieved some of the COVID-19 restrictions and permitted more businesses to open under level 3.

Even the demand for floor graphics soared. Prior to the pandemic you would go into stores and you’d see maybe a chocolate bar promotion or something on a floor graphic, but nothing to this extent.

Auto dealerships bought floor graphics indicating where customers should stand in their main showroom, and parts and service departments.

In this video Riley created an ABS board to spread the awareness of COVID-19 using AM’s FastCOLOUR large format printer.

He used greyback adhesive to make certain that the signage sticks well on the glass.

You can also do this at home using a desktop printer if your design can fit on an A4 paper.

How to apply your ABS signage on a window:
Begin with cleaning the glass or window first.
Apply the dishwashing liquid solution onto the window followed by the vinyl.

Use a squeegee to flatten the surface of the vinyl and to ensure that it sticks properly onto the window.
