CUSTOM FACE MASKS
We’ve got you covered

The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public. We gathered info and options to help you navigate the different mask and choose what’s best for your situation. Mask on.

Face Mask 101
Masks come in a variety of shapes and styles. We’ll help you wrap your head around the options and figure out what’s best for you. Since we’ll all be wearing more masks these days, might as well be comfy. Also check out the comparison grid below for a head to head look at the top masks we recommend.

Full Panel
This is the most common mask shape with lots of decoration options including all over printing.

Half Fold (center seam)
The seam adds and angle to the mask that contours well to the face. Note, the design won’t line up over the seam.

Pleated
The fabric has pleats to give more room within the mask which creates a looser fit. Decoration options are limited.

Single Use
A simple inexpensive option with raw edges and no sewing. We don’t think you should get this.

Neck Gaiters
A different shape and style that can also wear well around the neck when not in use.

STRAPS
Ear Loop Options

The strap has a big impact on the comfort and adjustability of a mask. Pick and choose based on your needs.

Over the Ear
Easy to put on, easy to wear. The most common option.

Adjustable Slide
Cinch the ear loop to the size you want.

Ties
Tie the straps to the size you want (over the ear or head)

Ear Saver
Adjust the fit while also helping with ear comfort.

Over the Head
A good option if you’re wearing the mask all day.


FIT
Stretch Factor
A large factor in fit and comfort is the material used for the earl loops. Many masks actually don’t use a true elastic, but rather the same fabric as the mask panel itself (think of a t-shirt material… there is some stretch of course, but not nearly the same level as elastic). This reduces the stretch, which inhibits comfort and ends up fitting fewer faces.

SEWING
Gathered Edges (shirring)
How the mask is sewn together makes a difference. For the best fit, the elastic is sewn to the fabric in a gathered (shirred) style. This gives the mask more stretch while also hugging the face and contours for a better fit (which is why you see this in swimsuits)

SIZING
Will the Mask Fit?

Face it, people and therefore faces come in many different sizes. Like most apparel items, masks have several ways to deal with fitting as many people as possible. As you saw above, how the mask is shaped and constructed makes a difference. Here are a few other ways:

Multiple Sizes
Some masks come in 2 or 3 sizes. This adds a bit of logistics, but can be overcome with our pre-order to collect sizes.

"/Adjustable
A mask with ties or an adjustable slide on the ear loop can extend the fit without dealing with sizes (tip: If the mask is too tight, the slide can also be removed from the straps). Or add an ear saver for the same goal.


OSFM
A majority of masks come as one size fits most (OFSM), which does make it easier to order and distribute, but also will inevitably leave some on the fringes wanting. However a mask with elastic ear loops and a good stretch can work for most people.

Add More Filtering
If you want an extra layer of protection, we can add in a separate filter that protects from the particulate matter at 2.5 microns (that’s most forms of bacteria, allergens, smoke and pollution).

How to use the filter


Option 1
Some masks have a filter pocket built in. Simply slide it in.


Option 2
The filter can freely sit inside any mask.

Design Tips

All over print
Full Color – Digital Print
• These are printed before the mask is made, which allows for the edge to edge printing. Take advantage of that.
• The mask will contour when worn, so use patterns and shapes that work well with that.
• Support your people with style, not huge logos or ads.

All Over Print – Center Seam
Full Color – Digital Print
• For masks with a center seam, use a pattern that can split nicely over the seam without needing to line up.
• Dots, all-over patterns, and organic shapesare the name of the game, leave stripes and patterns that align for masks without a seam.

Limited imprint area
1-3 color – Screen Print
• These are printed after the mask is made and therefore the imprint is limited in size and color.
• Organic and circular shapes are more forgiving with this pattern (square shapes can appear visually off).
• With the smaller size and color range, keep it simple.


Where Masks Are Useful (needed)

WFH Kits
Even with your team working from home, you can bring your team together with thoughtful, branded masks. Give your people the protection they need during their outings.

Uniforming
If your team is essential and still working during these hectic times, finish off your uniforming with branded masks.

Education
Whether your students are arriving in the fall, or you want to send protection from afar, students and faculty alike will appreciate sporting school colors and logos when staying safe.

Giveaways
Reward your loyal customers and fans with branded masks. Guaranteed to get use and seen in public, sending a mask is useful and a great investment.

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION
WHO Recommendations
The WHO recommends a 3 layer face covering made up of a combination of materials to maximize filtration efficiency and breathability. Our Kotis Made Mask (with 3-ply) has been lab tested to meet the WHO requirements.

Maintenance Recommendations
• Only 1 person should wear the mask
• Dirty/wet masks should be changed and not worn for extended periods
• Wash regularly and handle carefully to avoid contaminating other items
• Wash in warm water with soap or withdetergent delicately without stretching orwringing the fabric


CAMBRIDGE STUDY
Mask Materials Put to the Test

Researchers at Cambridge University tested a wide range of household materials for cloth face coverings. To measure effectiveness, they shot Bacillus atrophaeus bacteria (0.93-1.25 microns) and Bacteriophage MS virus (0.02 microns ins size) at different household materials.

Material’s effectiveness against 0.02 micron particles
