Not so long back, we couldn’t have imagined writing an article about the best face masks for printing and personalisation. However, circumstances during the last year meant that the mask became an everyday essential. And halfway through 2021, it doesn’t really feel like it’s going away anytime soon. Even with more positive developments in the pandemic, there remains uncertainty about many things. Government guidance is constantly evolving, but it feels as if the face mask may be something which has found a more permanent place in public consciousness.
Until recent times, face masks were fairly uncommon in the UK. They were generally only required in specific situations. Making them mandatory changed all that. With everyone needing a mask, it’s no surprise that numerous companies and organisations wanted masks branded. A school or business logo. A promotional giveaway with a difference. Or a unique design for resale. They all need specialised ink. So we’ve put together a short list, 6 of the best face masks for printing. As usual, numbered for reference rather than ranking. Taking sensible precautions is a no-brainer and staying safe in style is a good way to go. It’s worth pointing out that we only do simple, one colour prints on masks.
That’s about it for this quick look at 6 of the best face masks for printing in 2021. We printed all of these with very satisfactory results. As mentioned, simple, one colour printing works best. We should note that these masks and face coverings are all non medical, non clinical in nature. They are meant to assist in reducing the spread of infection, but don’t come with any assurances against transmission. In reality, the jury is still out on the efficacy of masks. Debate continues on the subject. As far as we’re concerned here at Fifth Column, erring on the side of caution seems like a sensible way to approach things.
