The novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) epidemic has more and more similarities with the SARS in 2003, but for printing industry, the impact of the outbreak is even more extensive. Before 2010, the impact of the Internet on the printing industry was not very obvious. Traditional printing was the mainstream of the times. During the outbreak of SARS, newspapers and brochures were still the main ways for people to obtain news. Some enterprises have improved their printing business by undertaking a large number of SARS publicity materials. In addition, the consumption of medicine and disinfection chemicals increased significantly during the period of SARS. Therefore, the production demand of some packaging and printing enterprises, such as pharmaceutical packaging factories and plastic flexible packaging factories, increased by a large margin. Therefore, from a long-term and overall perspective, SARS did not have a great impact on the printing industry.

Facing the current severe epidemic situation, what countermeasures should the printing industry take? The author thinks that there are the following points:
Secondly, printing enterprises should speed up to adapt to the situation of receiving urgent orders. During the outbreak of the epidemic, the consumption of drugs and disinfectants in various parts of the country increased rapidly, and they were all very urgent. Since January 20, Luxin Tianyi has received urgent orders for nearly 55 million medical packaging boxes. On January 27, Wenzhou Chensheng Printing Co., Ltd. started printing disinfectant labels for customers. On the 28th, 100000 copies of disinfectant labels were delivered. Similar to the amount of orders in the normal operation of the enterprise is not a small order, which requires enterprises to have the ability and strength of docking this emergency order. Small and medium-sized printing enterprises should timely adjust staff shifts, try to improve efficiency, return to work with the permission of relevant departments, and take the initiative to connect with the local government, which can not only cooperate with the government to fight the epidemic, but also alleviate the enterprise losses caused by the epidemic.
According to the prediction of "China's industry and informatization", after the epidemic, made in China may usher in a wave of industrial Internet landing climax. From the different dynamics of manufacturing industry in the current epidemic situation, it can be seen that the digital ability can enhance the anti risk ability of enterprises to a certain extent. No matter large-scale enterprises or small and medium-sized enterprises, the industrial Internet system based on digitalization, networking and intellectualization will undoubtedly make the manufacturing operation faster and more flexible, lower the overall cost, and also make the total assets lighter, and can more effectively face various market conditions and emergencies. This should also become a key issue for the printing industry. Taking Hucai Printing Technology Co., Ltd. as an example, due to its good digital capability, the delayed start of work caused by the epidemic did not cause serious harm to Tiger color. The supporting force behind this is from the transformation of printing + Internet, Hucai's IT team (mainly covering it architecture management, cloud computing, information system construction, data development and analysis and mining and other related technical personnel) has built three core capabilities of "intelligent chemical plant, big platform and big data". Therefore, digital, network and intelligent construction should be included in the enterprise development plan after the epidemic.
Finally, the author believes that entrepreneurs should actively study the central documents. Affected by the epidemic, enterprise capital chain is a crucial issue. Of course, there are similar problems in all industries, not only in printing industry, but also in the central government. In February 1st, Chinese novel coronavirus, the Ministry of Finance and the Banking Regulatory Commission jointly issued the notice on further strengthening financial support for the prevention and control of new coronavirus infection in pneumonia, and put forward 30 measures. The central bank has asked for "maintaining reasonable and sufficient liquidity and increasing the support of monetary credit", and proposed to appropriately improve the tolerance of deposit reserve assessment according to the actual situation. That is to say, if the enterprise can't support now, they can ask the bank for help. Moreover, the central government requires that enterprises seriously affected by the epidemic situation can extend or renew loans if they have difficulties in repaying at maturity. Therefore, many capital problems faced by enterprises can seek the help of the central government, which requires enterprises to actively study the central documents.
