Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation

LAST UPDATED: 26th March 2020

Please note, we are now only open for orders specifically relating to COVID-19, prioritising our production capability for our NHS, Health and Social Care Clients (existing and new) as well as key retailers. If your enquiry is non-urgent, please email info@citiprint.co.uk and we will respond as soon as we can.

With immediate family members working directly in the NHS and care homes, our focus is on protecting them and by limiting our operations, we are safely being able to do that, whilst doing what we can to support the UK’s efforts in tackling COVID-19.

PREVIOUS UPDATE:

In over five years of business, we’ve not once been closed, even during relocating premises, broadband outages and staff illness, we have soldiered on.

Whilst the Coronavirus outbreak in the UK is dominating the headlines, we want to assure you of both the preventative and reactive measures we are taking at Citiprint to protect you, your business and your expectations.

We currently have no plans for remote working; we are proud to produce all of our jobs in house and will continue to do so to meet demand. We are keeping up to date with the UK Government’s potential plans for quarantine or further travel bans and will adapt our business suitably in light of any changes.

At current, we are still delivering daily across the UK with London deliveries completely unaffected as we continue to deliver to key event and exhibition venues where jobs have been requested.

We may introduce revised limits on existing credit accounts and may not allow new credit accounts to be opened during this time to protect not only our business and workflow but also to ensure service levels can continue to be exceeded.

Stock and Suppliers

We have always stocked suitable levels of media, inks and substrates and are confident through working with our suppliers that there will be little to no disruption to our supply chain.

Before UV printing onto substrates, we use anti-static spray ensure a high quality print result. We have now taken steps to wipe all substrates with surface cleaner before printing to minimise any risk to you and our staff.

The Team

Whilst we have been fulfilling an increasing amount of work across Europe in the last 18 months, we have taken steps to postpone all upcoming work outside of the UK including jobs in Canada and the US.

We have introduced an internal travel policy and are fully aware of any past or upcoming travel arrangements staff may have.

Sign and Digital 2020 has already been postponed and we are cancelling our attendance to any other industry related events until further notice.

Hygiene

We have always fitted out both our installation and delivery vehicles with hand sanitiser for staff to use. We have now also added additional hygiene products to all of our production areas and are continuing to recommend following the WHO’s recommended protocols.

Vehicle Graphics for PRETTYLITTLETHING.com

So imagine this right, one of our bright Pink vans pulling up at Malcolm Ryan studios only being told we needed to fit some graphics for the creative team at PLT. So, grabbing our kit and making our way to the stage in question, definitely looking weak pulling the huge sliding industrial door open to find…. another Pink car! This time, a stunning, absolutely breathtaking Cadillac, ready to be adorned with some high quality self adhesive vinyl 🤓

Thankfully we’ve got a skilled team of experienced fitters who have dealt with branding private jets, classic Ferraris and everything in between so this was right up our street and well the results speak for themselves – demonstrating how graphics can have such a powerful impact, especially on social media which is where this job ended up as part of PLT’s Black Friday campaign.

Citiprint achieves SafeContractor Approval

Our commitment to Health and Safety both on and off site has been paramount since we started in 2016. We’ve demonstrated our knowledge on installations in the UK, Europe and shortly Canada, leading with a skilled and experienced team, specialising in work at height.

We’ve today received our full SSIP accreditation through SafeContractor Approval which paves the way for us to work on becoming ISO accredited in the coming months. We now join over 33,000 businesses in the UK who have been recognised and audited by the scheme, which give our clients confidence that the installation quality they expect is consistently met and monitored to ensure we don’t fall below the standards required.

Each of our fitters is responsible for over £5000 worth of tools and equipment on any given job, largely comprising of access gear including our recent investment into Zarges TeleTowers for safe, portable and easy platform work, providing us a working height of 4m both indoors and out. This has proved invaluable for exhibitions, shopping centres and retail environments and internal work where space is limited.

We’ve had no recorded incidents across the 500+ installations we carry out each year and have regularly been commended by our clients for our safety on site, often in busy public areas which can pose many risks. Our detailed RAMS for each job has further proven our understanding of risks, job specific precautions and management of the Health and Safety of other contractors on site. This was most recently demonstrated at Harrods Knightsbridge, where we were principle installers for the Fendi Cafe takeover, fitting over 200m of vinyl in under 24 hours. We supplied an installation team along with Project Manager to oversee the overnight work. Liaising with over 100 other contractors on site and providing the relevant and safe access equipment to our team on yet another successful job with no incidents.

We will shortly be investing into Dell rugged laptops for our installation team to allow for site audits, equipment inspections on site and to allow for enhanced and real time H&S auditing and oversight.

Branded Underwear for Naked Breakfast at London in the Sky

Viewing London from 100ft can easily be both daunting and impressive at the same time but what about doing it totally naked?

Well, that’s what fundraisers for Coppafeel and Movember did recently at the all new London In The Sky at the O2.

We’ve had a large part to play in the launch of the 72 day opportunity to wine and dine up in the sky with the ticket office full wrap, table branding and more so to add 100 pairs of underwear into the mix was an absolute pleasure.

Mug Printing for Channel 4’s Celebrity Call Centre

How many times have you opened a present on Christmas to find it’s yet another novelty mug?! Well, not all mugs are mugs, especially when it comes to supplying AgeUK with a case of Same Day Mugs for their recent filming with Channel 4’s Celebrity Call Centre.

With the laughter from James Acaster, down to earth advice from Nick Hewer and smiles from Gogglebox’s Steph and Dom, Celebrity Call Centre tackled the public’s dilemma this Christmas in a Channel 4 special.

Working in a call centre can be hard work so it’s no wonder those involved enjoyed our mugs so much.

But, it wasn’t just the Celebs who were impressed as AgeUK themselves said “Thanks so much for sorting this so quickly, they look fab!”

You can find out more about Same Day Mug Printing in London here.
