Washup is the process of cleaning the printing press, especially the ink rollers, between print runs or when changing ink colours.

Ensuring the press is clean is paramount to maintaining colour integrity and avoiding contamination from residual ink.

The washup process typically involves the use of solvents or special washup products designed to remove all traces of ink from the rollers.

A thorough washup routine is vital to consistent, high-quality print results.
