    1st: I thought there was already a thread on this, but couldn't find it.
    2nd: I'm not trying to profit off of this pandemic, just trying to come up with
    sign ideas to keep my hours.

    I'm looking for ideas, I will start:
    I just had a customer call, who has an equipment rental business, and
    request two coroplast temporary signs to direct customers to their curbside
    service, where customer pull up, don’t have to exit their vehicles and can
    rent equipment.

    I am planning on calling around to companies who might want to offer similar services.

    We're keeping our crane trucks ready and available for a variety of other non-sign related services. The initial rush for coronavirus related signs has slowed.

    Our office started a limited schedule this week to reduce the number of office staff around each other. We'll be working one day at the office and one at home with different people alternating different days. Our shop people are doing the same thing. Meanwhile I'm taking any down time as an opportunity to do other things. Computers need their own sort of "spring cleaning" from time to time. That can mean organizing computer files, deleting temporary work files that won't be archived and doing other maintenance chores. Down time also can be used to learn some new things and improve skills.

    The attached image (social distancing sidewalk decal) was in my most recent marketing email from Fellers, but I don't have any templates to share. Grocery stores could definitely use these both at cashier lines and lining-up outside the building.

    This was a social distancing floor/wall graphic that we created, but we haven't sold any. We have installed several around our plant and posted the photos on our social media.

    Grad signs, every school district is buying yard signs celebrating their graduates. Really, like every single one in the country.

    This is becoming a trend. Had a school ask me today about some and I've been seeing them around my neighborhood.
