What role has wide format played in the pandemic and what lies ahead in the ‘new normal’?


Wide format signage has played a key role in delivering guidance signage to essential shops, public areas, hospitals and more during the pandemic. The digital print industry during the past months was called upon to deliver information and guidance signage for Covid-19, and deliver it fast.


From printing exhibition graphics, banners and POS signage, suddenly providers were printing distance markings, shop display signage, banners and signs, all focused on public safety – there was and still is a lot of it!


Signage still remains the most effective way to drive impulse buys when the shops open and customers are ready to visit them. Healthcare will of course  be a major consideration for print businesses going forward, as will schools, workplaces and other areas as they open  - all requiring health and safety signage.  It could well be a busy time in the sign world and Mutoh are ready to support you with high quality Japanese manufactured printers & cutting plotters, software, service and support.
