Creative Solutions VS. Covid - CRE Exhibition Press Release

Helping organisations put on bigger, better, and brighter displays has been Creative Solutions' mission now for over 20 years and was founded by a team with a combined 40+ years of experience in Exhibitions, Display, and the Print Sector. We joined the fold of all businesses, communities, and individuals completely disrupted by the events and lockdowns of Covid-19.

When the pandemic came to pass in 2020, Creative Solutions set about creating a whole host of new products manufactured on-site here in Axminster with quick turnaround times for churches and organisations to adopt swiftly, helping to ease tensions on safety parameters for church groups, Pastors, and their visitors both in indoors and outdoors spaces. These included large standalone see-through covid screens for church leaders to stand behind to deliver their message, freestanding hand sanitisation stations for entryways, Printed Anti-Viral Fabric Products for displays to be updated, Posters, QR Codes, Pavement Signs, and Banner Stands, as well as hardwearing Printed Stickers for all spaces, seats, and walkways to offer passive instructions for safety adherence.

Combining creativity and the need for protection systems, we chose to help combat Covid by merging individuality and organisations’ branding with custom safety solutions. We were pleased to produce tailored and customised pieces as individual as our clients.

“The need for cleanliness was the top priority, but this did not mean the solution needed to be clinical. It needed to offer protection, and blend into client’s spaces seamlessly.” Ben, Director of Creative Solutions. “We continued to offer our usual flair and passion for display excellence, just with a change of materials and placement for our Covid Range products. Creating the range, and the additional bespoke add-ons, offered new challenges and research areas. We made sure to speak with our clients to find out what they wanted. We also scoured the industry to source the best materials available. It sparked imagination, conversation, teamwork, and helped forge longstanding client relationships, as organisations now look forward in 2022.”

Our safety solutions have been shipped across the UK and installed throughout the South West, with the Installations and Production Teams happy to be back on the roads again. In the ‘downtime’ we all experienced, we also put the printers to good use and dotted large displays around Axminster thanking our NHS and Key Workers for their continuing hard work, which was met with much praise and local camaraderie. 

Now the diary is starting to fill with events once more, we are very excited to introduce cross-over Covid and Exhibition products such as the self-sanitising fabric for displays, ‘Coala Cover Safe’ - a film for anti-bacterial protection that can be applied to almost any high-contact surface like doors and tables, and custom printed social distancing screens for communal areas, bathrooms, offices and busy areas. It has been an industrious time for not only our own staff but everyone as we start to get back on our feet this year. We are glad to have been able to assist both new and returning clients and combat Covid by creating products to help places stay accessible and safe.

For all our fellow CRE South West Attendee’s, if you are looking for a customised covid protection system or any signage, display or print solutions for the event or future, do get in touch, or come and visit us on stand P32 where we will happily discuss all your requirements. We look forward to seeing you!
