As the world has changed so quickly, so have the needs of our customers. During the days of social distancing and staying at home, the job of visual communication has become even more important. From cafes to retail stores, healthcare sites to transforming our home space, we’ve seen an increase in questions being asked regarding what materials and products we have to suit.

Whether it’s floor graphics so people know where to stand, signage so customers know about changes in office hours, way finding, inspiring substrates for a home office/play area or takeaway menus you can adapt weekly – there’s an idea below for you in our go-to guide covering the best materials from our Display & Visual (wide format), Small Format Digital and Graphics divisions.

For more detailed information, specifications, applications and features regarding the list of essential materials, please download the PDF’s:
