GetBold Facemasks that Function

By now we’ve all heard the face mask debates. If you follow what the medical staff do, you know that using a mask is important to address the spread of disease. During situations where social distance is difficult to maintain, COVID-19 virus can be spread by coughing, sneezing, singing, or even speaking at close range. For this reason, in many locations, if you aren’t wearing a mask, you may be refused service and not be allowed entry.

The use of cloth or fabric masks preserves the availability of surgical masks and N-95 masks for front line healthcare personnel, who take care of patients with a wide range of illnesses including COVID-19. By wearing masks, we significantly reduce the transmission of the virus.

Custom branded face masks are a great opportunity to make a statement in 2020, and probably beyond. The popularity of sporting a unique or unusual mask has gone way up, and it is amazing to see the opportunity for self-expression that has resulted.

As we return to our social activities, remember, by wearing a custom mask you can make a statement, and reduce transmission of COVID. In combination with social distancing, hand washing, using sanitizers rocking your custom mask can help keep yourself, your colleagues and your loved ones safe and healthy.

GetBold Embraces and Enables Your Facemask Expression

“Necessity is the mother of invention.” So, be inventive. If it is necessary to wear a mask, you might as well express yourself. GetBold has some considerations and ideas that may help you with your custom mask printing or embroidery. What constitutes a good custom mask?


1) Is it reusable? Is it made from a washable material? Is it well-made with durable construction? Are the design and message easily understood and clear from the desired distance? 

2) Keep in mind that fabric masks are not as suitable or effective as N95 medical-grade masks, however, they’ll do just fine for the grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants, or any other public situations

3) These masks are typically made from either 100% cotton, a polyester/cotton blend, or a tri-blend of cotton, polyester, and rayon

4) Not all fabrics, however, have the same level of safety. 100% Cotton does the best job of filtering COVID-19 transmission by large airborne droplets.

5) For graphics that make up the front and centre of a mask, staying within a 3” X 3” printable area is a good idea.

6) You may be interested in buying blank masks from us and printing your own

7) Bounce your idea off of us. We might be able to make a suggestion to take it from fun to fabulous.

8) Mask colour, just like a shirt, is part of the message. Think of it as part of the design.
