Understandably with COVID-19, there has been a strong need for social distancing and if you think that just pasting the yellow or red tape on the floor can make people understand where to stand, that isn’t going to happen.
People can’t read other people’s thoughts and may not be able to follow instructions as clearly as you may set it out to be with yellow/red tape on the floor. Even if you print on the tape “please stand behind the line”, the message doesn’t clearly convey the message of where you may need to stand. Could it be just one metre behind the line or merely just behind the red tape?
This will, in turn, lead to confusion and a continual cycle for manpower to keep having to repeat where to stand, leading to bad queue management.
Moreover, from a print provider’s perspective, the tape may not be intended for the usage of social distancing, which will leave residues on the floor due to the poor adhesive.
So, one may ask, how do I choose a good floor sticker that will be good for the long term run and lead to no damages on my flooring?
Well, here are some tips for you such as purchase a box type or square shape graphic marker for social distancing floor sticker. This helps to guide customer clearly where to stand, like standing in the box.
