Minuteman Press Helps Businesses Bounce Back from COVID-19 in Bath and NE Somerset

It has been a long road to reopening for businesses across the United Kingdom during the COVID-19 pandemic. The team at Minuteman has been working hard to support their community and clients in and around the Bath and NE Somerset area and help other local businesses get back on track. At first, they launched a free community website Bounce Back Bath and NE Somerset for local businesses to promote special offers, updated hours, and supportive messages to the community.
Today, the Bounce Back programme has become a growing community movement with over 200 participating businesses and partnerships with local organisations. They all have one common goal, which is to help the entire community come together and bounce back.

Minuteman Press Bath is supporting local businesses with a free community website Bounce Back Bath and NE Somerset (part of Bounce Back UK by Minuteman Press International).

Since printing is an essential business, the team at Minuteman Press in Bath was able to remain in operation while following all COVID-19 guidelines. Bounce Back Bath and NE Somerset is part of Bounce Back UK, to help all UK businesses at this critical time.

Minuteman launched Bounce Back Bath and the first thing they did was call clients and let them know they were offering a free service to support them. They also approached contacts through LinkedIn and social media, especially when they saw that they were opening. They received great feedback and so every time a new business signs up, they create a graphic and post it on social media and also send them official welcome packs.

Those welcome packs include an introductory letter, the Minuteman Press product catalogue, a Bounce Back Bath window cling, and a COVID-19 awareness and prevention poster.

The response has been great. Clients and prospects have really appreciated that they are there to help them back into business. They also really liked the fact that this is for free with no obligation to buy anything .

As the Bounce Back movement has grown, Minuteman Press has received attention from local organisations looking to partner with them and pitch in. Bath and North East Somerset Council has co-branded some of their materials and the Bath Business Improvement District (Bath BID), were really keen to get on board. Minutreman are now partnering with Bath BID on a special Bounce Back Art Competition to help people rediscover Bath and the amazing community there.

Minuteman Press will reproduce the selected artwork and designs and create a parade of two metre high giant ‘bunting’ flags. Up to 48 designs created by the community will be reproduced as a rainbow of art hanging from lamppost pennants in the streets of the city.

Next week they will be helping food businesses participating in the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme with free window stickers, so their support for the local community does not stop.
