Additional Information Regarding Wash Your Hands Signage

Wash Hands Signs

What are Wash Hands Signs?

Frequent handwashing can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and many other diseases. In order to protect the well-being of customers as well as employees, businesses are emphasizing the importance of regular handwashing, and using signage to pass along best practices for doing so. By posting Wash Hands Signs in various locations throughout the facility, businesses can ensure they are prioritizing the health and safety of their customers and staff.

Types of Wash Hands Signs

Wash Hands Signs can be of various types and sizes. The important thing to keep in mind is that, for the most part, they must be easily visible where handwashing should take place. In addition, consider signage at “reminder locations” throughout your facility to continuously emphasize its significance. We’ve noted some of the most requested signage types here:

Posters - We produce our posters on sturdy 24pt cardstock, with vibrant, abrasion-resistant UV inks. Printed single-sided or double-sided, Wash Hands Posters can be hung with Command strips, Velcro tabs, or Poster Snaps; or, stand them against an easel or other freestanding display. In sizes up to 98 x 48 inches. Learn More

Plastic Signs - Made from high-quality rigid PVC, and available in 3mm and 6mm thicknesses and printed single-sided or double-sided. Plastic Wash Hands signs are direct-printed with UV inks to withstand abrasion and fading. Cut to various shapes: square/rectangle, rounded corners, custom, and custom with border. Eco-friendly, full recyclable. Learn More

Wall Decals - Your design is printed onto flexible, low-tac adhesive opaque vinyl, which can be removed, reused, and repositioned many times without damaging paint or drywall. Easily installed, wall decals can be cut to shape in an array of sizes. Learn More

Aluminum Signs - Install our aluminum signs on a wall, hang them, or place on a stand. The signs feature a solid polyethylene core sandwiched between two sheets of .008-inch rustproof aluminum. We direct-print your design with UV inks, which are resistant to fading and abrasion. In various shapes: square/rectangle, circle/oval, rounded corners, or custom. Learn More

Permanent Decal - Similar to our other decals, high-adhesive Wash Hands decals are specifically designed for permanent commercial and industrial use (indoor as well as outdoor). Apply to a variety of surfaces, including brick, metal, wood, cement, and more. Cut to any shape. Learn More

Opaque Window Decals - Printed with UV inks for vibrancy and durability, these decals are ideal for placement on windows, glass doors, or other smooth surfaces. Available in a variety of shapes: square/rectangle, rounded corners, circle/oval, custom, and custom with border. Easily installed. Learn More

Opaque Window Cling - The ideal choice for temporary signage, these window clings are printed onto thin vinyl that can be easily applied to any smooth surface; reuse and reposition as necessary. Printed with UV inks and produced in a various shapes, including: square/rectangle, rounded corners, circle/oval, custom, and custom with border. Learn More

Foam Board Sign - Our foam board signs feature a 5mm styrene foam core with a paper face on either side. Your Wash Hands design is direct-printed onto the sign’s face with durable UV inks; single-sided or double-sided. Display with Command strips or Velcro tabs; attach an easel back; or use a freestanding easel. In sizes as large as 96 x 48 inches. Learn More

A-Frame Sign - Portable and extremely durable, our A-Frames are available with either a non-removable graphic (Standard), or removable graphic (Premium). Your Wash Hands graphic is UV-printed, with a matte lamination added for protection. Print both sides the same, or you can customize each side. Learn More

Benefits of Wash Hands Signs

Think of your Wash Hands Signs as your company’s first line of defense in fighting COVID-19 and other diseases. After all, washing your hands is probably the most important action you can take to remove germs, to prevent getting sick, and to prevent spreading germs to others. By posting signage to raise awareness of the importance of frequent handwashing, then, you can help decrease the likelihood that your employees or customers will get sick themselves or spread any infection.

Effective Locations for Wash Hands Signs

What are the best places for your Wash Hands Signs? Certainly any location there is a faucet is a good “rule of hand,” but especially consider the following:

  • Restroom interiors - Wash Hands signage here can range from a wall decal adhered to a restroom wall, to perhaps a variety of different designs for each stall door (either side). And, of course, signs or decals placed adjacent to sinks or faucets are a must.
  • Restroom entrances/doors - Post reminders to customers and employees on both sides of restroom doors and entrances, perhaps with a “Did You Remember to Wash Your Hands?” message as they exit. Plastic or aluminum signage will work here, as will a wall decal.
  • Employee lunchrooms/breakroo - Lunchrooms or any food-centric locations are prime spots for Wash Hands posters and/or foamboard signs. Consider placing easel-backed foamboard signs or custom table tents on breakroom tables and counters; decals or posters work well on refrigerator doors.
  • Business entrance - Signage placed at your entrance reminds customers and employees of the importance of washing their hands. Hang or install aluminum or plastic signs, or place an A-Frame at the entrance or in your vestibule.
  • Kitchens/food-prep areas – While it may seem commonsensical to some, all food-centric areas such as kitchens and prep areas should have at least one if not multiple Wash Hands Signs. Posters are common signage solutions in these areas, although we’ve also seen plastic and aluminum signs which are longer lasting and splash-resilient.

Hand Washing Basics in the Age of COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) points out that, during the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone should be washing their hands:

  • After they have been in a public place and touched an item or surface that may be frequently touched by other people – including, but not limited to, door handles, tables, gas pumps, shopping carts, electronic cash registers/screens, etc.
  • Before touching their own eyes, nose, or mouth – because that’s how germs enter our bodies.

In addition, the CDC notes these key times to wash your hands throughout the day (whether at work or at home):

  • Before, during, and after preparing food
  • Before eating food
  • After using the toilet
  • After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet
  • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • After touching garbage
  • After handling pet food or pet treats
  • After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal wast
  • Before and after caring for someone at home who is sick with vomiting or diarrhea
  • Before and after treating a cut or wound
