Baker Labels prints social distancing floor stickers for local businesses.

For those businesses that are still open in and around Brentwood we have created a series of social distancing floor stickers. It can be difficult to gauge the 2m social distancing guidelines so we’ve seen taped markers on floors in some supermarkets, pharmacies and petrol stations laid out by staff to help us all.

The floor stickers we have created are designed to push a clearer message and with bright, eye catching colours they are very hard to miss. Supplied in packs of 15 along with 5 window stickers and delivered via a network of volunteers coordinated by Brentwood Borough Council.

It occurred to me very soon after the guidelines on social distancing came into practice that floor stickers could be a huge benefit to shops and businesses that remain open during this pandemic. It’s crucially important to maintain the distance to protect ourselves and the members of staff working on the front line. Baker Labels is still open and mostly producing labels for the food, drink and medical industries but we also have the materials, equipment and capacity to produce large floor stickers. With sports events across the world being cancelled or postponed, staff for our athlete ID brand Sportstiks have been deployed to produce the floor stickers. Staff across the whole company got involved in helping come up with slogans so it’s been a great team effort to get these produced and out there where they’re needed.

Having shared the concept with Brentwood Borough Council leader Chris Hossack and CEO Jonathan Stephenson and received their encouragement we have now delivered dozens of packs for distribution in and around Brentwood, including to sheltered housing.

In times of challenge it’s fantastic to see such amazing support for the community.  I am extremely grateful to you and look forward to receiving our supply and getting them on site.

Floor Stickers for Charity Donation

The cancellations of fundraising events and closure of high street charity shops due to the coronavirus pandemic are expected to hit finances hard for all charities. The UK sector is estimated to be facing a £4 billion loss in the next quarter as a result of the coronavirus crisis, officials have warned.

Help us raise money for SNAP and Kids Inspire so they can continue to provide to families in Essex with the support they need.


We have produced these free of charge for businesses in Brentwood but we’re happy to send them out far and wide for a charitable donation. If these could be of use to your business please get in touch through our Sportstiks desk or calling 01277 281920.  We have lots of packs available for a minimum £10 donation via the link below. Money raised will be split between Kids Inspire and SNAP charities.

Thank you to Bakers for their continued support that will enable us to continue with our vital work in the community during this difficult time. Kids Inspire are still fully operational, seeing 95% of our service users online,  5% of the most vulnerable individuals face to face but following all protocols.

Sadly we have lost 50% of our funding due to the cancellation of all events, community and corporate activities. As we remain operational, we can only furlough six of our business/fundraising team, therefore our costs remain constant.

Fundraising & Communications Manager, Kids Inspire

The current crisis has put added pressure on charities across the UK and SNAP is no exception. As you can imagine, this is also a challenging time for us as a charity and the team at SNAP is very grateful to Baker Labels for its continued fundraising support. The charity sectors expects to lose almost £4 billion over the next 12 weeks. As we are continuing to run essential services for our families, despite a sudden fall in our revenue from usual activities, every donation that can help us to come out of this unique situation ready to help future generations of families would be appreciated more than ever before.
