Reopening signs
News

With the UK emerging from lockdown 3.0 many businesses are preparing to reopen. Throughout the pandemic Signs Express have produced and installed a large range of signs and graphics that help protect customers, employees and visitors.

We can support every sector as the country begins its exit from lockdown, starting with education from 8th March and moving through to retail, hospitality, professional services, gyms and leisure facilities over the coming months. For our full selection of social distancing and COVID-19 signage solutions click here.

Top three things to consider

Choosing the right solutions for your sector Depending on your sector you may need signage that achieves different things. You may only require social distancing messaging, but it is worth considering what else your customers need to know, your opening hours for example or your own requirements for people coming into your shop, restaurant or leisure facility. Follow the link for each sector to find out which signage solutions we recommend!

You can also create a motivational environment for them to return to utilising wall graphics, signs and posters.
