As a sports signage company, we are fortunate to work with unique and interesting teams and organizations year round. However, springtime is an especially busy and exciting time for us. As the temperatures warm, we begin preparing for the MiLB season, The Boston Marathon, and many other outdoor events. And then there was a pandemic.
Part of what makes AMI Graphics the company it is are the strong partnerships, and many friendships, we have with clients. Many of our clients were forced to make the difficult decision to cancel events and even entire seasons. Given the circumstances, they made the right decision. But not being able to do the work you love is never easy, so we wanted to help however we could.
Another part of what makes AMI Graphics the company it is are the skilled and dedicated employees at our New Hampshire and Florida locations. Once events started getting canceled, virtual meetings were already taking place at AMI on how we could continue to support our partners, while simultaneously pivoting our own business. Soon after the meetings, we began producing a new line of products aimed at keeping people safe and businesses operational amid the pandemic. We started with a line of acrylic protective barriers called IntelliShields. Now there are tens of thousands of IntelliShields being used in schools, stadiums, stores, and more across the country.
The skilled AMI staff didn’t miss a beat and continued carrying out normal services while producing the new line of Social Distancing products. As the summer progressed, we started to see positive signs that more businesses were reopening when customers began ordering more of our traditional signage products. In a coordinated effort between our New Hampshire and Florida locations, large orders for our new social distancing products were fulfilled while orders for large banners, custom flags, and more were all completed on time.
As we look ahead to the fall and winter, the prospect of more leagues being able to play games, more restaurants serving food, and more in-person events excites us because we know how much this progress means to our customers. AMI Graphics is here and ready to help you navigate your signage needs both now and in the future. Reach out to AMI and let our signage professionals help you get exactly what you need.
