Albert Einstein once said, “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”

For print service providers in Hull right now that means finding the best way of adding value and increasing margins. This post makes the case for the current market opportunity around large format printing, along with the best way of creating a competitive service.

The beauty of large format print is that it’s a relatively low-risk technology that can yield a high return on investment. To accelerate your approach, we have created a best practice guide to running a large format operation. Below is a list of how to provide a wider array of services – to new and existing customers.

With social distancing rules in full force, those businesses that are still operating must introduce new measures to keep staff and customers safe.

We’ve put together some useful products to help inform and protect customers and staff during these challenging times. If you can’t see a solution for your needs we can provide bespoke options to suit your unique site requirements thanks to our in-house joinery and fabrication.


Reinforce the latest Government-issued safety guidelines on a large format poster. If your customers have had to make changes to the way customers interact with them, they can also be used to advertise operational messages like new opening hours or a temporary new address.

Sneeze Guards

Help to protect workers and customers in shops, newsagents, post offices, pharmacies and other retail environments with a portable sneeze guard. They feature an acetate window to aid communication and a cut-out area at the bottom for transactions.

Queue barriers

With the introduction of social distancing advice, it may be necessary to change the layout of entrances, till areas or working and canteen spaces. Branded queue barriers can guide visitors and employees safe and help to keep them informed.

Circle or Rectangle Floor Stickers

Encourage customers to stay a safe distance apart and reinforce important safety messages with instructional floor stickers. Choose between indoor or outdoor variations. The outdoor option is made from an aluminium-based substrate and can be recycled.

Navigation Signage

Do you need to change access to your premises? Maybe your team are now working from home. Or you have new check-in rules. Use wayfinding soft signage to aid customer navigation. Print your new instructions to help people understand what to do.

Information Totems

Easy to assemble, lightweight information signage with essential capacity for information updates in this ever-changing scenario. A4 snap frame to front and reverse. Routed base detail for weighting should it require additional stability.

Face Masks

Wearing a face mask helps to reduce the distance that viruses can travel. These face masks are printed in full colour with your design or client branding. Get them all the same or supply a different design for each mask in your order.
