The relationship between CMYUK and Revolution Signs is a relatively new one, but events of the last three months have somewhat intensified the experience. CMYUK has been supplying the Braintree-based signage, interiors, marketing suites, and exhibitions specialist with large volumes of floor graphics materials throughout Lockdown.

We’re pleased to announce we are now supplying off the shelf, ready to order, social distancing graphics for the trade.

Face masks have become a common sight in our everyday lives. Face coverings are available in a variety of materials and styles such as face shields. They are slowly conquering the world of fashion, too. "To enable our customers to send out a promotional message with face coverings, we have added various face mask styles to our product range that can be custom printed," says Christian Würst, Chief Commercial Officer of Onlineprinters. The company sells printed products such as flyers, posters, brochures, business cards, exhibition systems and promotional items, including face masks over its online shops to customers throughout Europe.

On Day 88 of Lockdown CMYUK delivered 18 pallets of floor graphics to Birmingham–based Hollywood Monster. Pre COVID-19, this scenario would have been unthinkable for both companies, but in this new world of social distancing, everyone has needed to adapt. 

Due to the increased demand for floor-graphics solutions, Antalis has added Xerox Floor GraphiX for dry toner printing to its range.

For local Minuteman Press franchise owners Julie and Mike Arndt, there is nothing more important right now than helping their communities recover and rebuild from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Julie, who runs Minuteman Press in Brandon, and Mike, who runs Minuteman Press in Plant City, have remained open since printing is an essential business. During this time, they launched Bounce Back Brandon/Riverview and Bounce Back Plant City, two free community websites connecting local area businesses with people who are looking to support local and shop local. Businesses who submit a completely free listing also receive free COVID-19 awareness and prevention posters as well as window decals and signs that Julie and Mike are providing as well.

HP Inc. and 3M today announced a new collaboration to share large format graphics for commercial signage applications. Signage is crucial to communicate social distancing and health and safety messages as public spaces, workplaces and businesses reopen amid the continued COVID-19 pandemic.

The world now accepts the reality of wearing face masks and coverings. This will be part of our daily lives for the foreseeable future. As expected the immediate demand for mask personalisation and design decoration has dramatically escalated over the past few weeks. This will continue to do so for many years to come. Currently there appears to be a vast range of options, materials and styles. Together with various claims relating to specification and personal safety.

The People’s Picture’ has launched a giant interactive rainbow mosaic of “hope” on London’s Piccadilly Lights made up of thousands of NHS staff, key workers and carers combined with the nation’s pictures with the messages “Every picture tells a story, what’s yours? Be creative, stay well, and Thanks to the NHS’”.

22Miles, a global leader in experiential 3D wayfinding and digital signage technology, launches the industry’s first Protection-as-a-Service™ (PaaS) solution. As stay-at-home orders ease around the world digital signage will explode with the need for distanced communication to aid in public health management and mitigation. 22Miles created TempDefend™ as a protective digital signage communication and direction tool, providing a building’s first point of communication and management in the prevention of viral spread. Using 22Miles’s thermo-sensing technology, TempDefend couples advanced camera hardware, facial and body temperature detection software, integrated sensors, and dynamic machine learning algorithms in existing or new digital signage displays.

#SendingLove, the world’s largest User Generated Content (UGC) powered DOOH campaign has wrapped. During its run, the campaign from Talon, Plexus and Grand Visual, delivered messages of love and solidarity to 180 cities around the world, whilst raising money for the global COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit home in Fayetteville, local business owner Jared Ostendorf decided that failure wasn’t an option for himself and the community he loves. Jared has owned his printing and marketing franchise International Minute Press Fayetteville for eleven years, and as an essential business he was able to remain open and use his business for good. He supplied local restaurants and other open businesses with 100 free banners that can still be seen around town and launched a free community website Bounce Back Fayetteville to support local businesses. All of his efforts have paid off as Jared has doubled his monthly gross sales in May 2020, reaching record highs at the height of COVID-19.

Keypoint Intelligence is pleased to announce the launch of a new study entitled U.S. Vertical Vision: An Analysis of Business Print Demand by Vertical Industry. This study will provide the printing industry with a better understanding of how the demand for printed products and communication services has changed since 2019 and how this will evolve through 2020.

Mimaki Europe, a leading manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems, has announced it will host a three-part virtual event series – Mimaki Live – to support customers looking for inspiration and advice on how to maintain or revive business after the COVID-19 crisis.

FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division, announced results from qualitative interviews with more than 1,100 customers indicating an encouraging outlook for print service providers despite the recent COVID-19 impact on many commercial businesses.

‘It’s a been a while now since the UK Government actioned its lockdown programme and signs are beginning to indicate that the unprecedented measures are having the desired effect.

Flexible printing experts Structure-flex have begun producing 7,000 signs to advise visitors “You Are Welcome” to shop safely in the eight most popular towns and beaches in North Norfolk.

Organisers of The Print Show have confirmed that the event will be postponed until 2021, due to the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) situation in the UK.

Aligning with the company’s commitment to supporting the needs of its customers, especially in these unprecedented times, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to announce that imagePROGRAF customers can now download and customize templates to print signage and posters highlighting COVID-19 safety guidelines, as currently recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)*, using its PosterArtist/PosterArtist Lite software. As 76 percent of Americans say the quality and graphics of the print has the ability to gain consumer attention1, by displaying these prints, businesses can effectively communicate with their customers through informative signage designed to help keep the public aware of safety directives as they begin to reopen.

CMYUK has joined forces with industry finance specialist Sheppex to offer asset finance support as part of the Government’s Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS).

Rochester-based digital printing business Wallace Print Limited has secured £250,000 of funding from Barclays through the Government backed Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) in order to support their business and staff through the COVID-19 crisis.
