Open With Care Tool Kit

Collateral Material – Order Here!

As our businesses continue to #openwithcare, we have put together the following resources for our members. We are offering a series of safety materials, including floor + window decals, signage, face masks and sanitizer free for our members to collectively showcase that Gastown is cautiously following all WorkSafeBC guidelines, while welcoming customers back to #ourgastown after the COVID-19 pandemic.

In partnership with other BIA’s across BC, we believe it is important to have a unified branding of these collateral items for the following reasons:
  1. People don’t read every sign! Once they’ve read the sign once, they’ll recognize it visually at the next location.
  2. People will be more trusting of a professionally printed sign, and one they’ve seen repeatedly.
  3. The most important element of this messaging is your customer’s (+ staff’s) safety – standardized signage can imply you are also following standardized COVID-protocol.
*Please note, changes and edits are not possible given our bulk printing.
