Clever window graphics drive sales during lockdown

‘Window shopping’ gets redefined as clever
window graphics drive sales during lockdown.

With lockdown restrictions in full force, some retailers are finding novel ways to keep trading. We spotted this shoe shop in Amsterdam who’s big street-facing windows had been converted into an online shopping tool to make it easy for passers-by to make a purchase.

Shoe designs and QR codes had been printed onto vinyl graphics to allow window shoppers to instantly add shoes to their basket on their smartphone, meaning that Shoebaloo could still capture those last-minute impulse purchases.

Make more of the Great Outdoors

Outdoor branding and event ideas
can help to take your business outside.

With lockdown easing, customers are being welcomed back with open arms. Well, more of a socially-distant-wave from a well-sanitised hand, than a warm hug. But nevertheless it’s a welcome sign as businesses look to reboot.

Post-lockdown advice can be a little muddling at times but one thing is very clear – outside is best. The covid-bashing combo of safe distances and the great outdoors significantly helps to reduce the chance of spreading any nasties. Keep hand sanitiser handy and you’re good to go.

Table tops to roof tops. Collections under canopies. Breaks on the benches. Open air events. Meetings moving outside. However you’re planning to make the most of the great outdoors, our weatherproof covid-secure collection has it covered.

Here are some of our favourite
outdoor products on offer this month.

Our Gazebos are hot sellers. Use them at outdoor events and markets. Or for temporary workspace shelters you can assemble anywhere. Although they’re designed for outdoor use, they’re great indoors too. So when things do move back inside safely, you’ve got a ready made self-contained exhibition stand.

10% off Giant Deckchairs

Create an Instagrammable centrepiece for your beer garden, outdoor attraction or event. Our Giant Deckchairs are printed in full colour with your branding on waterproof fabric and seat two people (from the same household ofc). They’re locked into position with a hasp lock, to help keep things nice and safe.

20% off Pop-out Banners

Pop out banners are compact and self erect like magic. Choose from a tall and slim or low and wide banner shape. Both are double sided – have the same message on both sides or mix it up. Flexible way-finding signage that can appear anywhere in an instant. Supplied with ground pegs to secure them to grassy surfaces.

What does ‘covid-secure’ look like?

Do you find yourself wondering what a
‘covid-secure’ business should look like?

One thing is certain. As businesses start to reopen post-pandemic, they’ll need to fulfil certain hygiene and safety requirements set out by the Government. Customers will be actively looking for reassurance that steps have been taken to mitigate the risks associated with the spread of Coronavirus. That means things like installing hand sanitiser stations, putting floor stickers down to highlight good social distancing practice and wearing face coverings.

We’ve put together a catalogue of product ideas to help you visualise what you might need in order to reopen your business premises. Download the catalogue for free below.
