How Signs Can Help You Reopen Your Business

When will Michigan businesses reopen? We can't be sure yet as to when every business will be up and running again. But with some states loosening their quarantine rules and restrictions, you may be able to reopen your business in the near future.

Figuring out how to reopen your business safely will depend largely on your location and industry. But there are still a few basic methods you can use to promote social distancing and safety in your store or restaurant. The most affordable, effective, and reliable of those methods is by using custom signs.

Social Distancing Signs

Though quarantine restrictions may change over time, we'll likely be required to social distance in stores and restaurants for the foreseeable future. This may seem like a major roadblock to reopening your business, but you can use signs to enforce social distancing in your establishment.

Basic signage like stop signs, roll-up safety signs, and traffic signs can be repurposed to inform your customers on how to safely navigate your business. For example, if you want people to stay a certain distance away from the cash register before they pay, you can prop up a handheld stop sign. The ways that you can use signs for social distancing in your business are almost limitless.

Parking Signs

Though a lot of thought is given on how to social distance properly inside an establishment, not enough business owners consider the importance of enforcing social distancing in their parking lots. Businesses that rely on narrow, overflowing parking lots could be unintentionally putting their customers in danger.

Using parking signs will help protect both inside and outside your store. They allow you to space out your parking lot, establishing pre-determined areas where customers aren't allowed to park. This ensures everyone can get in and out of your business safely without having to compromise on social distancing.

Custom Signs

If you're not sure about repurposing stock traffic, parking, and regulatory signs, then custom signs might be the solution for you. When you work with a high-quality designer and manufacturer, you can have signs made that accommodate your wants and needs. That includes their size, shape, color, symbol, and text.

Using custom signs, you can communicate specific instructions or requests to your customers. This could range from "stop on this line" to "please sanitize your hands" to "wait until called," and so on.
