2020: A Year for the Books
If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times. 2020 has been a crazy, difficult, and most of all, unexpected year.
But we’re not here to rehash the timeline of current events. (You’ve got the rest of the internet for that.) Instead, we want to share our gratitude and excitement for the opportunities we had this year to grow, adapt, and meet the needs of our community.
Feeding the Frontlines
The challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic have been many, but the early days were especially frightening as businesses shuttered and frontline workers braved an unknown public health landscape.
Our team wanted to help. And since none of us are trained medical personnel, we decided we could try to at least make their lives a little easier.
In April, we were proud to support frontline hospital workers in our community by providing food from Flemington’s Just Subs to Newton Hospital, Hackettstown Hospital, and Hunterdon Medical Center. After all, food doesn’t just feed the body—it feeds the spirit. And no one deserves more support than our frontline hospital workers.
New Services, New Experiences
We always want to remain responsive to what our customers need. This year, we’re sure you noticed, people are looking for different products and services. That’s why we adapted services for big events like weddings and rolled out two new product lines: Shout Celebrations and Shout On The Go.
Hybrid Wedding Celebrations
We know that even in the toughest times, people want to celebrate big moments. And it doesn’t get much bigger than weddings. So how do you safely make a big wedding happen in a pandemic?
Bring on the technology! Hybrid weddings can marry the best of virtual and in-person by allowing small groups to gather while still allowing those who can’t attend for health or safety reasons to take part in the joyful occasion.
This fall, we collaborated on the design, including a stunning floor wrap, for The Hybrid by Stillwell Events. A limited guest list, combined with careful safety precautions, allows for a beautiful ceremony to take place with the happy couple amidst a stunning backdrop.
With large indoor activities and celebrations posing an increased risk for communities, we knew people would look for creative ways to mark big occasions. That’s why we drummed up Shout! Celebrations, our line of custom lawn signs. After all, lawn signs don’t need to just be for businesses and election campaigns: they’re a great way to say “Happy Birthday!”, “Congrats, Grad!”, “Welcome home, Baby Jones!” and more.
Shout on the Go
2020 was a year for anything mobile: grocery deliveries, prescription, toilet paper, you name it. If it could be delivered to your door, people wanted it. As a result, making your commercial vehicles—and your brand—easy to identify skyrocketed in importance.
From our years of experience, we know that a vehicle wrap is a quick route to branding your commercial vehicles. To meet this challenge, we rolled out Shout on the Go, a flat rate vehicle wrap.
With Shout on the Go, we not only design and print your custom vehicle wrap, but we bring it to you. (Yes, we’re also delivering!) We recognize the importance of complying with local and regional guidelines, so we conduct this service as a contact-free install.
Gratitude and Hope for 2021
We feel immensely fortunate that our business could make these pivots in 2020. It’s thanks to the support of our community and clients that we were able to do so. We don’t know what 2021 will bring—what changes, opportunities for growth and challenges to meet are still beyond the horizon. But we are excited to meet them together with you!
Thinking ahead to 2021? We’d love to work with you on your projects. Drop us a line to get started.
