Challenges in the printing jobs due to restrictions
Earlier people can easily walk out and do all the work easily. But after the restrictions, people face problems in communication. Due to this restriction, many people can’t fulfil their job needs. Talking on the phone doesn’t help a lot as you can’t judge a product completely through a video call. But as now the companies and industries are opening, people can talk directly. However, maintaining social distancing is necessary. Using the Canva and Epson printer, you can create posters, signs, presentations, etc for the social distancing campaign.

Disable the firewall on the network and now restart the printer’s Wi-Fi button. The printer will resend the connection request to the network.
