“As the world attempts to reopen, society is embracing new values on sustainability, humanity, empathy and solidarity to create a better tomorrow for everybody,” said Guayente Sanmartin, general manager, HP Large Format Graphics Business, HP Inc. “We have learned that we can only overcome this virus together through prevention and responsibility. Signage plays a critical new role in this endeavour by helping people feel they can be safe and we’re providing the technology to help achieve this.”

The 3M Graphics COVID-19 Related Signage library for HP is an online resource providing templates, design elements and poster artwork created to communicate guidance on social distancing and signage for wayfinding, in addition to signage for public health awareness. The content can be accessed for free through HP PrintOS or HP Applications Center. 

The ready-made design elements make it easy for designers and HP Large Format print service providers to create and produce applications, including:    

- Rollups and signage to enhance customers’ confidence by reassuring them of established social distancing practices

- Floor and carpet graphics for social distancing and wayfinding that are durable, removable, cleanable and UL 410 approved for anti-slip

- Display custom window signs or decals for storefront windows, mirrors and glass

- Posters to show support for medical teams and general public awareness

 The 3M COVID-19 Signage library makes it easy to design and create graphics that will be necessary as the world adapts to new public health safety requirements, said Silvia Perez, vice president and general manager, 3M Commercial Solutions Division.

“We recognize the unique and critical role that many of 3M’s products have in addressing this global crisis and helping promote health and safety for workers and the public, especially during this important period as people return to work and stores and restaurants reopen.”

 With 3M providing free access to their exclusive collection of COVID-19 related designs, HP Applications Center users can configure a customized space in three steps. By selecting desired content from different sources, graphics can be altered by scaling, duplicating, recolouring or adding objects and logos, or adding text for personalization with the option of a virtual preview in a variety of environments.
