Image Options Introduces Proprietary COVID-19 Retail Checkout Shields

Image Options has been restructuring to meet the needs of healthcare industry by producing nearly 25,000 face shields and other personal protection equipment (PPE) daily. Additionally, our team has now developed a proprietary COVID-19 Checkout Shield to protect grocery and retail cashiers, as well as customers, during the checkout process.

“We have long been partnering with the retail client-base. We immediately recognized that many of our clients, who currently have teams on the front-line, were not mutually protected while they were serving the community,” noted CEO Dave Bales.

Optically clear, and incredibly simple to install, these Checkout Shields offer protection from direct airborne germs while maintaining the aesthetics of the location.

“We fabricated a prototype shield, installed it at Zanotto’s Markets in San Jose, CA, and realized immediately just how necessary this was,” said David Payne, president of Image Options, San Jose.

Image options can add customized text such as Because We Care,” as well as an area for sponsored advertising. In addition to the health and safety benefits of the shield, the advertising space provides an opportunity for a potential revenue stream for the retail store.

“We installed one shield at one of our markets to test its effectiveness. Our employees and customers were thrilled. We immediately placed an order to outfit all of our check-stands,” said Fred Zanotto, Owner of Zanotto’s Markets.

With two fabrication centers, one in San Jose, CA and one in Foothill Ranch, CA, Image Options has over 200,000 square feet of open capacity we are currently utilizing to manufacture these immediate needs. We are proud to participating in the ongoing battle against COVID-19 and contribute to safer working environments for those on the front lines.

Please connect with us if you have an immediate need you think we can address.
