When the 2020 NASCAR season started back up after being shut down for a two month-period due to COVID-19, things had changed dramatically. There were no cheering fans in the stands, the typical pre- and post-race festivities were gone, and personnel required to be there such as drivers, pit crews and camera crews now had to wear masks and practice social distancing. The entire 2020 racing schedule was different as well, with NASCAR squeezing in the number of races over a much shorter time period. Those responsible for the design and production of graphics for the race cars and support vehicles, such as the Richard Childress Racing (RCR) Graphics Center, have had to deal with significant changes as well. In addition to adapting to new COVID-19 protocols, with the condensed NASCAR schedule, their workload essentially doubled.

The most expensive things you do in your printing plant every day involve talking to clients and physically touching their work. You talk to clients to better understand the work they want you to do, and you touch the work, in prepress or at other points in the process, to ensure that the client’s intent is rendered on to the substrate. But every conversation and every touch has a financial impact. While you rely on workflow tools to aid the process, in most companies there are also spreadsheets, whiteboards, and sticky notes used to gather and communicate information about the jobs-in-progress. It’s only natural! However, the more you talk and touch, the less money you make on the job.
