Creating Health & Safety Posters for Your Business
July 31, 2020 | NECS
One thing is certain of businesses that have remained open or recently reopened during the COVID-19 pandemic: policies and procedures have changed. Effectively communicating that change is an essential piece of your “next normal” phase of business, but black text on an 8.5 x 11” only works in a pinch, and proper signage is expensive and difficult to source right now.
We’re about to let you in on a little industry secret.
Canon’s PosterArtist Lite is completely free and now available for download on Windows 7 or higher.
This poster generating software works best with Canon imagePROGRAF devices, especially for larger wall and floor displays, but you can save your work as a JPEG and print from any make or model if necessary. PosterArtist Lite gives you access to over 200 pre-designed templates and 1,000+ royalty-free images and clip art, including those related to current Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and COVID-19.
The software has a user-friendly interface that creates posters in 4 simple steps: Select Template, Paper Options, Edit, and Print. The “Edit” stage is where you can customize the sign to your business and unique situation, highlighting items such as:
- Maximum capacity
- Mask requirements
- Instructions on hand washing and sanitizing
- Social distancing
- Directional arrows
- New hours of operation
- Curbside pickup details, and more!
It’s that easy! If you’re ready to start making your own health and safety posters as part of your “next normal,” contact us today to download your free copy of PosterArtist Lite. You can also take advantage of special savings on imagePROGRAF signage bundles. To learn more, click the button below.
