How a Sri Lankan Publisher Introduced ‘Anti-Microbial’ Ink to Assuage Readers’ Fears

Sri Lanka-based Liberty Publishers, which publishes Aruna (the second largest circulated Sinhalese newspaper in Sri Lanka) and The Monday Morning (an English language weekly newspaper) decided to print their newspapers using an “antimicrobial ink.”

“Our aim was to avoid any possibility of infection during the production process and to make the printed surface resistant to germs.
