Let’s face it, this is the new normal. Face masks have become an everyday accessory and will be a part of our lives for the foreseeable future. So what face mask is right for you or your employees? Below are a few differences and options. However, a larger conversation should happen tailored to you before an order is placed to determine your best option. Important questions to consider to find the right mask for you are:
What is the intended use?
What is your price point?
Is this for employees to wear all day? If so, comfort needs to be considered.
Will this be decorated?
In the beginning, it might have been considered crass to discuss decorating masks but that time is long gone. Masks can be decorated with one color or full color. Adding a decoration makes masks look more friendly and is great for brand consistency. Our suggestion would be to keep it subtle and simple for the added taste level and professionalism.
We have seen many types of masks during this time and our favorite are from Allmade. They have organic cotton and tri-blend face masks that are light, breathable, soft, and comfortable. The fabric is made from 100% Organic Cotton, US-grown without chemicals or 50% Repreve® polyester made from recycled plastic; 25% organic cotton, US-grown without chemicals; and 25% TENCEL™ Modal respectively. The tri-blend masks are also Made in the USA. Both masks are two ply providing that extra barrier of protection over single ply. They have a great fit to them with a wire seam on the nose for adjustability and comfort. They also can be worn over N-95 masks. As someone who wears glasses, they haven’t fogged up like other masks.
Masks should be washed before first use and after each subsequent use.

Disposable 3 Layer Masks
Goldilocks Promos has disposable 3 layer masks in stock as we speak. This is a good short term and inexpensive option. Which perhaps can tide you over before a cloth mask option is delivered. These civilian face masks are pleated style with ear loops, blue side out and nose clip up, and filter rate >90%. They also could be offered as a service to your clients to take one in case someone doesn’t have a mask.
Around the Ear
There are several options for around the ear masks. Our favorite is the Bayside Made in USA 100% Cotton mask. It has a 3-Ply fabric and is washable, reusable, and breathable. While single ply masks are great if budget is an issue, we prefer the added protection and love that it’s USA made.
How about an option that people will wear long after this. Multi-function headwear is a great alternative. They can be used as a Bandana, Wristband, Head Wrap, Scarf, Face Mask, Skull Cap, Hair Band, Neck Warmer, Scrunchie, Rally towel and much more. In addition to being multifunctional, they can be customized in full color and it keeps you warm in the cold and cool in the heat. Bandanas also will never go out of style.
Accessory- Ear Saver
Use an ear saver to help with uncomfortable straps around the ear. Great for people who have to wear a mask for long periods of time. We can engrave these in house which means fast turnaround times and you can also add a logo. Available colors are clear, blue, green, and pink.
