What Are Custom Bar Runners?

Setting up a bar is a very involved process. There is a long list of paperwork to prepare and items to buy before completing the process—from meeting all the government’s requirements e.g. liquor licenses etc, to the simple things like designing custom bar runners. In this article, we will leave the paperwork to you! We will talk about the less complicated yet essential material - bar runners.

Everything You Need to Know About Bar Runners

  • What Are These Materials?

Commonly known as bar mats, bar runners are an essential bar product that helps protect your bar’s surface from spillage. Our quality bar runners have high quality nitrile rubber backing and a non-woven fabric surface. 

The custom surface is designed to be the perfect print surface, so you can design custom bar runners to advertise your venue, events or brands. Doing so enables you to communicate your brand to your customers while maintaining your consistent branding within the premises.

  • How Do Bar Runners Help Bartenders in Their Preparation?

Bartenders need time and the right tools to prepare every drink. In most cases, bartenders use bar mats to place their “in progress” cocktails. It is where they will pour, mix, and garnish drinks. With bar runners in place, any spilled drink won’t go directly to the surface, thus preventing damage.   

  • What Is the Difference between Bar Runners and Coasters? 

Unlike bar runners, drink coasters are produced on absorbent cardboard and are much smaller. You use them to absorb the condensation that drips outside the glass or beer mugs. Moreover, you may also place the coaster on top of the beverage, especially when you haven’t finished your drink. A coaster may prevent contamination and dust from entering your glass.

  • Keep Your Customers Safe from COVID-19 with These Print Materials 

The COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020, and it still poses a threat to us all. That is why restaurant and bar owners should see to it that they observe the health and safety standards to protect their staff and clients from acquiring the virus. With that in mind, they use different materials, such as café barriers and various signage - But how do they help lessen the spread of the virus?

  • Café Barriers 

Bar and food establishments have barriers around their tables to clearly identity safe areas. The barriers are protective boundaries that help safeguard people from the virus. However, the owners should also make sure that they sanitise these materials to keep them clean and safe.

  • Signage for Safe Distances and Directions 

Another thing that helps mitigate the risks of COVID-19 is social distancing. While this rule is easy to follow since it just asks people to keep a safe distance from each other, previously most of us have been used to staying close to others, especially if they are our friends or family members.  

For this reason, some people need a constant reminder about this rule. So, owners of venues can use decal signage on the floor or the wall to point patrons in the right direction. Usually, this signage contains messages like “Please maintain social distancing.” with an illustration of two feet where an individual is supposed to step on.
