Businesses can also communicate messages to consumers through shelf wobblers. These are effective in supermarkets and retail stores by placing them strategically on the shelves. These can have messages such as how to social distance, prompts to wash hands, reminders to use hand sanitiser and messages to remind customers to treat workers with respect and dignity. They are excellent to draw the attention of consumers.

The main aim of a sign is to keep others informed about issues that are occurring around them. It can include anything from small marketing promotions to a larger warning.

If you want to use the signs effectively here are some steps:

Banners play a very important role in people’s lives, especially during this tough time. Never underestimate banners and signage as they can change the world and make a huge difference through raising awareness. Banner printing is inexpensive and can make such a huge contribution when raising awareness and with marketing efforts.
