Globe Print and Drytac lead Covid-19 jab effort

Print service provider Globe Print recently played a major role in the opening of a major Covid-19 vaccination hub in Buckinghamshire, using five Drytac products to create graphics for the facility.

Globe Print produced all of the graphics for free

Plans to open the hub at one location fell through, at local business Newdays Pharmacy was asked to locate an alternative site, settling on Softcat's HQ offices in Globe Business Park.

However, Newdays Pharmacy was required source a series of printed graphics for the facility to ensure the safety of the public and the vaccination team.

Globe Print, a preferred supplier to the NHS, stepped up and produced a range of graphics on Drytac materials.

These included wall graphics and internal signage on Drytac Polar Choice Matte, a printable monomeric PVC film, and internal floor graphics on Drytac SpotOn Floor 200 monomeric PVC non-slip film.

For outdoor floor graphics, Globe Print used Drytac Polar Street FX, a PVC-free, aluminium print media, while ViziPrint Impress was used for graphics for the clear internal wall partitions inside the centre.

We wanted to do our bit as well; as this was for a vaccination centre, we did the whole project free of charge

Globe Print also used Drytac Protac AMP Film for graphics at ‘touch-points' throughout the facility, including doors and handles.

Graphics were printed on a Roland VG-640, Mimaki UCJV-300 and Agfa M2000 printers.

Nick Wintle, managing director at Globe Print, comments: "Key to the installation was the tight turnaround time. The vaccination centre was opening on January 23rd and Newdays didn't have sign-off for the graphics until January 20th.

“We wanted to do our bit as well; as this was for a vaccination centre, we did the whole project free of charge - from design and print through to installation of the graphics.

“Having worked with Drytac’s films for a long time and on a number of other similar jobs, we were confident that they would perform well.”
