After a few months of wearing a mask whenever we leave the house, many of us have developed our own preference for what makes “the perfect mask.”

Like any article of clothing, comfort, above all else, is key — especially if you’re wearing a face covering for upwards of 8 hours a day. We want something lightweight, but effective, adjustable but snug, easy to clean or toss in the garbage. Searching for the right mask can veer into Goldilocks territory quickly, but the long and short of this is simple: just wear one!

We’ve been on the lookout for face masks at affordable prices, and have come across an unlikely retailer creating eye-catching designs sure to have people asking, “Hey, where’d you get your mask?”

Vistaprint has gained a reputation as the place to go online for office supplies like business cards, posters, stationary and customizable clothing (think tote bags and T-shirts).

Now, the Dutch ecommerce retailer is offering shoppers the chance to customize their own face mask online or shop from one of their popular patterns and prints.

Even actress Kristen Bell is a fan of Vistaprint masks and the company’s back-to-school initiative for kids. The “Frozen” star and mother-of-two is participating as a celebrity judge for the brand’s “Masks by Me” contest, in which children are encouraged to design their own face mask in a pseudo colouring contest to help reframe how kids feel about wearing masks.

“Going back to school looks a bit different this year, but wearing a mask is a simple thing we can do to help each other as we navigate the school season. I’ll be judging @vistaprint ‘s ‘Masks by Me’ contest in hopes to make masks a little less scary and a little more fun,” Bell wrote in a post to Instagram. “On behalf of this program, I will also be donating $100k to @coreresponse , an org offering free COVID-19 testing sites throughout the US. Can’t wait to see your designs!”

Whether you’re an adult or child, Vistaprint allows you to create your own mask for your company or own personal liking and order in bulk at a reasonable cost.

Each machine washable mask is made from moisture wicking, durable materials for all day comfort. For added protection, Vistaprint offers removable filters in packs of 10 for only $13 each. Masks are available in Adult and child sizes with adjustable ear loops and a wire at your nose bridge for added protection and comfort. Prior to wearing, Vistaprint recommends removing any mask filters and washing your mask on a gentle setting and allowing to air dry or dry on a low setting.

We’ve gathered some of our favourite masks from Vistaprint we think are sure to show off your personality, promote your business or your own designs while keeping you (and others) safe.
