April 2020, the Covid-19 month

Difficult times, businesses having to shut up shop, people self-isolating and then lockdown. What a month.

Some of the things we have been busy with, NHS signage, Shop window “now serving take away food” posters, printing large format patterns. Ive not printed a sewing pattern for years, but all of a sudden there’s an urgent need for NHS medical scrubs.

A local group of York sewing machinists/seamstresses got together and decided to make the much-needed scrubs, and York Print Company was more than happy to print the patterns to help out. The group had donations to cover this, but all we asked was a token to cover costs. A great effort that just goes to show the true British spirit.

So, no end in sight as yet, but we will carry on regardless and let’s hope we can stay safe, beat the virus and get back to business as soon as possible, and remember:
