Collegiate Pride Inc., a Pennsylvanian local screen printing shop has launched a unique style of face masks printed user’s own face named ‘happy face mask’. Previously Danielle Baskin, a Designer in San Francisco launched a cotton face mask that can be custom ordered with any image desired, including that of one’s own face and they are merely realistic.
Usually, around this time of year, Collegiate Pride Inc. remains busy in making thousands of shirts for camp and summer activities, but by the epidemic, that work has been hampered a lot. The store is happy to be able to create a product that is so high in demand right now and Danielle Stemple, Marketing Director says, “These things aren’t going away anytime soon.”
The masks are instantly produced using a digitized version of a quality image using a ‘direct to quality’ printer. The printer uses water-based ink and passes the mask over to create the image in about 10 seconds.
For this, a clear image is necessary for natural light and one can choose own style, realistic or cartoon, and the size of the mask. The cartoon version is a bit larger which creates a more exaggerated look.
This is a great way to make people delight in a dark time. The public response is the best part. Many do a double-take and then walk around to take pictures and ask where the mask comes from.
