Who would have thought that the most popular accessory of the year would be a face mask? Everywhere you go, you’ll find plain blue-and-white face masks covering everyone’s mouth. But just because masks have their standard color doesn’t mean that you can’t stand out. Here are a few tips on how you can add a pop of color to your mask.
6 Tips to Make Your Mask Stand Out
1. Use a mask with patterns.
If you’re too lazy to design your own mask, you can use a mask that already has a design on it. The easiest way is to find a mask that has patterns that match your personality. Fortunately, masks now come in different patterns, colors, and designs. You can simply just look for one that you like.
Ever watched those DIY face masks at home using a large scarf or bandana? That’s what you’ll be doing if you have a scarf whose prints are your favorite. There are many ways to turn a scarf into a mask but there are two ways that are the simplest of all.
The first method doesn’t need anything but the scarf itself. All you have to do is wrap it over your neck making sure that both lengths of each end are equal. The part of the scarf that is currently covering the front of your neck should be pulled up to cover your nose. You’ll notice that the fabric on your chin is loose. To tighten it up, just pull the two ends until it fits your face perfectly.
The second method is by adding three hair ties. First, fold the scarf on one end so that it resembles a rectangle. Keep folding it like this until you reach the opposite end. Put one hair tie on each end of the scarf. Place them 4-6 inches from the edges. Put the scarf around your neck. With the third hair tie, loop it through the ends just below the two hair ties. When that’s secure, twist it back so that the end of the scarf is at the back of your head. Then use the two hair ties and place them behind your ears. Adjust the scarf so it fits you best.
3. Say it with a statement.
Statements are coming back, but this time, they’re not only found on shirts. They’re also found on face masks! Come up with witty statements so that people reading them can also have a laugh with you. In fact, you can be creative with these statements by using puns about wearing masks or about using quotes that you believe. You can also just put on a statement that reminds people of social distancing.
4. Get it screen-printed.
Printscreen is one of the methods of printing on fabrics, a great way to design your own mask. There are other methods, but PrintScreen is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to print your designs. If you have your own design, a great products promotional company can help you translate that to a print on your mask. They also have masks that you can choose from depending on the style that you want. For PrintScreen, it’s always better to have a professional do it for you so that your design doesn’t bleed into the fabric.
5. Put on a smile.
No, you won’t be putting down your mask just so people can see that you’re smiling. Instead, you can print your smile on your mask. This sounds absurd at first, but it makes sense when you know someone who prints realistic smiles on face masks. You don’t even have to have your smile copied; there are lots of other smiles that can be printed from stock photos.
6. Add some glitter.
Ever found someone who has glitters on their face mask? You probably haven’t yet. That means that you can always go this route and design your mask with some glitter. This is perfect if you plan no wearing your mask for a night even or for a date. That way, your mask literally shines and grabs attention.
There are many ways to make your mask stand out. However, keep in mind that your design should never compromise your mask’s ability to keep you protected.
