FDC business recovery support program

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (June 9, 2020) — FDC Graphic Films, Inc. has launched a support program for its customers to help them begin the road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each week for the next six weeks, the company will be sharing new products and cost-savings measures for its customers to help them succeed in the second half of the year and beyond.

“We’re going through this journey of recovery together. No one has a crystal ball of what the future will bring,” said Laura Reid, FDC vice-president of marketing. “We want to support our customers in all ways possible.”

FDC’s distributors will want to look out for weekly emails on Tuesday during this six-week program for special product launches and promotions.

To jumpstart the recovery support program, the company has introduced a new color, Rose Gold (224) to FDC’s Lumina® 4200 product line.

This new color allows for a beneficial opportunity for FDC distributors to communicate with customers as they re-open.

This intermediate ultra-high gloss calendered vinyl is recommended for outdoor and indoor uses where a high-quality marking film is needed for flexibility, durability, and resistance to sunlight.

It can be used for architectural signage, point-of-purchase graphics and decals, banners, striping, window graphics, and lettering.

Typical applications for the Lumina® 4200 include:

  • Floor Graphics – Paired with laminate like Lumina® 7051 for social distancing messaging.
  • Windows – To indicate being open for business, hours of operation, and/or limited capacity messaging.
  • Coroplast Signs – To indicate hours of operation, being open for business, appreciation, and even “Class of 2020” messaging.
  • Shield Guard Decoration – For branding and personalization.
