A lot of us are experiencing a shift in daily behaviour. We’ve moved our daily lives from routine journeys to work, to setting up workspaces in the comfort of our own homes and forcing us to solely communicate with peers virtually.

Antalis has launched a range of PPE solutions to protect people working in healthcare, retail, supermarkets, warehouses and other commercial environments from COVID-19. It supports the company’s full range of visual communication materials for use in the production of signage and for solutions such as protective screens, booths and sneeze guards.

OKI Europe is providing free* social distancing media and artwork to help support businesses both during the COVID-19 pandemic and through the transition back to a new normality.

There’s nothing better than a get-together over a pint (or whatever your favourite tipple might be) at your ‘local’ to share experiences and put the world to rights; but what do you do during lock-down when all the pubs and bars are closed?

Premium digital out of home (DOOH) media owner Ocean Outdoor has announced plans to introduce touchless advertising screens which will transform audience and brand experiences post COVID-19.

While many industries have been hit hard by the unprecedented effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the worldwide packaging community has responded by supporting numerous welfare efforts.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the International Sign Association Board of Directors met this week and has voted to cancel ISA International Sign Expo® 2020 re-scheduled for August 22-25.

While some print service providers have remained operational since the introduction of lockdown conditions on March 23rd - perhaps to supply the key worker infrastructure and or by diversifying to offer PPE provisions - there will be a large number who needed to close. Print equipment may have been lying unused for a number of weeks, with many PSPs having been unable to follow manufacturers' best-practice shutdown processes.

In Germany the wearing of masks in public transport and supermarkets is mandatory.

The owner of Moray-based Signworks says his work has gone from 'zero' to 'crazy' in the past few weeks with orders for temporary signage and banners relating to COVID-19, which he can turn around in hours using his HP Latex 315 wide format printer.

To help ensure the safety of the public when the lockdown is lifted, the City of Paris and JCDecaux are deploying free hand sanitiser dispensers in public areas.

During the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic Durst North America continues to add resources to support the growing base of Tau products in the market. The company also announced it has an upcoming Webinar with Packaging Impressions on May 20, 2020 to highlight benefits of UV printing.

Drytac has released Protac® Antimicrobial in the UK & Europe, a new laminating film that protects surfaces against bacteria and fungus.

With a large part of the global production of personal protective equipment (PPE) happening in the United States and China, much of Europe is experiencing a major PPE shortage, putting millions of lives at risk. In order to combat the shortage, the Professional Clothing Industry Association Worldwide (PCIAW) is partnering with Gerber Technology to make PPE more widely available. Through their PPE Task Force, Gerber has already helped over 1,200 manufacturers across the globe successfully convert their manufacturing capabilities to PPE production.

CMYUK has launched its Safer Spaces range, a collection of specialist products and materials designed to help jump-start the UK’s digital wide-format sector back to work.

As flexible thermoplastic experts Structure-flex temporarily halted production of lorry trailer curtains and bulk transport bags, their team turned to designing a reusable full-face visor for the fight against coronavirus.

Hundreds of SMEs and retailers have benefited from Ocean Outdoor’s out of home advertising fund which has proved an overwhelming success and surpassed the £10 million originally promised.

J&G Environmental, the leading UK print waste management company, has continued to provide its recycling and waste services to printers across the country during the Covid-19 outbreak, having been classed as an essential business by the government.

The Minuteman Press printing franchise in North Olmsted, Ohio is run by dynamic husband and wife team Dan and Jennet Foster. In 2019, they celebrated 15 years in business and took home a regional franchise award for outstanding customer service. Now, in 2020 and celebrating 16 years, they continue to show that print is essential.

HP Inc. together with its global network of print service providers (PSPs) continue to innovate printing applications to help medical teams, businesses and the public adapt in the ongoing effort to combat COVID-19.

From butchers and bakers, to candlestick makers, and everyone else in between: Clear Channel UK is proudly offering 250 free-of-charge digital Out of Home campaigns to the UK’s local business owners that have worked tirelessly to support their local communities throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
