    Are we considered essential printing?

    My operation guy is reading into it for Michigan we only print stuff for essential businesses to stay open like restaurants and healthcare. We work from home and only call people in to print these.

    Like I have a orders in for some companies i am not sure if they are essential buisness.

    Your feedback is appreciated
