Window Signs and Posters
We have created four different signs that you can install in your commercial windows during the COVID-19 crisis. The purpose of these is to inform your customers of your current operations while spreading a positive message in the community. All you have to do is download the one you want, print it on 8.5 x 11 size paper and display it in your storefront. We invite you to participate in large numbers so that the message of local shopping is diffused to our entire community.
