AlphaGraphics, a north-east based print and marketing agency, has successfully launched a new online store to provide social distancing materials to businesses operating through the COVID-19 pandemic.


Within the first week of launching, AlphaGraphics’ online store processed orders from some of the UK’s leading high street retailers for their warehouses, as well as large multi-national businesses and many other smaller shops and vendors.


The store, aptly named Social Distancing Solutions, has a standard range of products from stock, including posters, floor stickers, banners and signage that help to outline and enforce social distancing guidelines. These can be ordered, dispatched and delivered quickly.


Sean Costigan, Director at AlphaGraphics, said: “Many of the customers we have helped so far are still operating in some way throughout the pandemic, and they are realising the need to continually remind their staff and customers about social distancing.


“Social Distancing was a phrase few people had heard of two months ago, but we all know that it will, in some form or another, be around for some time to come.


“We hope that our new range of products will help businesses enforce these guidelines to keep their employees and customers safe.”


AlphaGraphics’ standard range of social distancing products is suitable for a range of work environments, including retail, warehouses, trade counters, showrooms and healthcare.


The team is now offering a bespoke design service for businesses that want social distancing signs aligned with their company brand.


Alternatively, for businesses that operate across multiple locations and require a more tailored offer, AlphaGraphics can create separate dedicated online stores to purchase products directly. These can be set up in a matter of days.


Sean added: “We are regularly adding new products to the site to meet client demand, and we are now looking at ways in which we can help businesses post-lockdown, as we anticipate social distancing measures will still be enforced as the restrictions relax.


“If we all work together and follow the government guidelines, it will hopefully allow the country to exit the lockdown in a more structured manner.”
