REDDING, Calif.- The coronavirus has forced many businesses to shut down, but Signarama, a local business in Redding is doing well, lending a hand to other businesses. 


Ashly and John Robbins tell Action News Now when the pandemic hit, they didn’t have to close their doors because they were considered essential.


On top of making signs for other businesses, they added and began making sneeze guards and PPE because they had the proper equipment.


“Through our supply chains we were able to get the materials that were very, very difficult to get,” says John Robbins, owner of Signarama. “The acrylics and plastics and things like that became non-existent."


Their signs can be seen around Redding, including one that thanked healthcare workers for their service. In addition, they’ve expanded to creating various coronavirus-related signs.


“With schools opening up, we’re doing a tremendous amount of informational signage, distancing decals, things like that for the schools,” says Robbins. “All over the place not just in Redding, we’re doing school stuff everywhere.”


Signarama has created out over two-thousand sneeze guards that have gone out to help local businesses.


“Not only does it help local businesses stay open and other businesses keep going, but it helped us keep going and keeping all of our staff employed so no one had to go out,” says Robbins.


Like some businesses, the owners say they laid off some employees, but have since brought them back.


Signarama has been part of the Redding community for over 15 years.
