Inspiration from the front line during COVID-19

It’s time to highlight some of the amazing print initiatives being created to support key workers during COVID-19.

Every day during the COVID-19 crisis, thousands of key workers head out to work to keep the country up and running. On top of all the hardworking government, police and healthcare staff, over 20,000 NHS workers have come out of retirement to help and a further 170,000 people have volunteered to join the cause.

We’ve seen some amazing designs come through the press over the past few weeks, many of them created in support of these crucial key workers. So, we’ve decided now is the perfect time to highlight some of our favourites.

Even in the darkest of times, inspiration can still be found. And now more than ever, we’re coming together to support each other and those who need the most help.

So, let’s take a look!

Nightshift Vinyl Stickers

Doctors and nurses are working round the clock during COVID-19. These Vinyl Stickers were created by a member of our own Customer Service team in support of a friend working nights at the Queen Elizabeth hospital. With the ability to remove and re-apply multiple times, these prints are a big help for nurses who are constantly on their feet.

NHS Positive Postcards

Kerri Emerson wanted to do as much as she could to support frontline staff during COVID-19. These fabulous Postcard designs intend to spread positive vibes and boost morale among NHS staff all over the country. Kerri picked some of her favourite quotes and then asked talented designer Emily Freeman (@emily.rose.designs) to translate them into colourful designs. Mission accomplished! All money raised from sales of these Postcards will be donated to NHS charities and The Laura Hyde Foundation.

Kokoa Eco Beauty Thank You Cards

Kokoa Eco Beauty are about all things eco- including their 100% natural ‘One For All’ liquid soap. What’s more the business is donating all profits from this product to support the NHS, with each order being accompanied by this vibrant Thank You Card. With demand for hand wash having skyrocketed in the UK over the past few weeks (and everyone now washing their hands VERY thoroughly) we think this is a fantastic way to raise money for our health service during COVID-19. Heroes!
