Re-starting after COVID-19: what did the virus do to digital textile printing inks and our machines?


The outbreak of COVID-19 was a drastic event that changed the world harshly.

In this previous blog, I already explained what the first consequences were and what I expected to be the long term impact for textile printing. Now that the world is slowly getting back to a more normal situation, we can start analyzing: what consequences has COVID-19 actually had so far on our industry? How do you deal with machines that have not operated for a long time? Can I still use the inks that I have in stock? And what can we expect in the upcoming months?
