As the COVID-19 healthcare crisis develops, companies and consumers alike are adapting to a new world of social distancing and safe hygiene.
In order to prevent another spike in infections, CDC guidelines will likely be in full force for some time. It is now more important than ever for businesses to invest in safety signage and other visual communications that promote distancing best practices.
Check out the links below for some of the sign and graphics options Signs By Tomorrow Elgin offers for helping you navigate these new challenges.

Whether guiding visitors throughout your floorspace or encouraging checkout shoppers to maintain six feet from the nearest person, social distancing floor graphics and decals are a great way to reinforce guidelines with customers and employees.
Retail companies and other businesses with high foot traffic should consider also using floor graphics to communicate one-way traffic rules, further reducing the risk of human-to-human contact. Additional signs and graphics placed at the ends of each aisle can also encourage customers to think carefully about their movements. If your business exists on multiple floors, combine floor graphics with elevator graphics to further instill good practices.
While duct-tape may seem like a sufficient temporary solution, such products aren’t designed to endure significant foot or cart traffic. Signs By Tomorrow uses high-quality vinyl materials with an anti-slip laminate, ensuring our floor decals will stay in place and even withstand the increased cleaning efforts you’re undertaking.
If you are limiting the number of shoppers in your store at one time, A-Frames placed outside can let shoppers know where they need to wait to enter. A-Frames are also a great solution if you are now offering curbside pickup and want to provide customers with instructions for how to contact you when they arrive.
Indoors, free-standing displays can serve as a reminder of social distancing principles as soon as customers enter, and also direct them to hand sanitizer dispensers and holders with wipes for their carts.
For reception desks, checkout stands and customer service stations, we can create social distancing counter protection screens. These create a physical barrier that protects both staff and customers from coughing, sneezing and other airborne contaminants. Reusable and easy to clean, they’re available as permanent or temporary installations, and will provide peace of mind to hygiene-conscious visitors. We can also create a cut-out space at the bottom of the panel to allow for transactions.
Has the current health crisis altered your store hours, or are you offering special shopping times for seniors and more vulnerable persons? Use window graphics to communicate your operating hours and other pertinent information to shoppers clearly from the street. Keeping customers informed allows them to better plan for their trip and potentially visit during off-peak times.
