“Put On a Good Face” Mask

$11.00$16.00

Don your best game face with “Put On A Good Face” masks.  These two-ply washable, reusable face masks are hand-made by Canadian artisans in British Columbia.

Choose from an assortment of prints and colours to help you express yourself in these crazy, trying times.  Cheer yourself up (and everyone who sees you) while shielded from the many things the world throws at you — road dust, wind chill, wildfire smoke, cat hair, pollen, smelly tasks, you name it.  Protect others from your sneezes and sniffles, or your pre-coffee morning scowl.  It’s also a great way to remind yourself not to touch your face!

All masks are made with tightly woven, but relatively breathable, materials — very important for wearability.  They’re fully lined a with soft, absorbent second layer for extra comfort and a bit more filtration.  We tweaked the shape so it cups over your nose and chin and hugs your face with less gapping on the edges than a flat rectangular shape.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Please remember that no masks can offer full protection against any kind of infection or danger.  These are offered for fashion and personal comfort reasons only, same as any masks that are not specifically produced to medical specifications.  Always wash your hands properly and keep your distance from other people, wash your hands before putting on your masks and after taking them off, and launder masks after each wearing or if they get wet or soiled, then dry completely before reusing.

Price breaks are available for quantities or 2, 5, 10, and 20.

Description

These masks go on with elastics around your ears, which you can easily shorten to make the fit tighter.  Or if you don’t like the feel of ear elastics, just replace them with ribbons or shoelaces that tie behind your head for a more customized fit.  If you need instructions on how, look here.

We’re doing our very best to keep prices as low as humanly possible to help ensure everyone who wants masks can have them right now.  So we’re offering them for the cost of materials, plus minimum wage for our sewing time.  We’ll try our best to maintain this for as long as the need exists and our materials hold out.

Consider getting more than one per person so you can wash and dry used masks frequently, especially if anyone in your family has cold-like symptoms.  All masks are made from machine-washable and dryer-safe fabrics for easy laundering.

Alternative Mask Styles

If you find your glasses fog up, find your mask fabric sticks to your skin in hot weather, or feel like you have trouble breathing freely in a mask, you might want to check out our new Ziggurat and Anteater masks.

Ear Rescue Straps Upgrade

Ear Rescue straps consist of two separate straps, one adjustable with Velcro and one super-soft elastic, that go behind your head and take all the pressure off your ears.  You can have perfectly comfortable, pain-free ears even at the end of a long day of mask wearing!

You can learn more about the Ear Rescue strap system details or in the annoucement post.

The Ear Rescue straps upgrade is currently also available for “Put On a Good Face,” Ziggurat, and Anteater masks only.

If you think you need extra-long or -short straps, or want them for a child, please contact us for instructions for custom measurements.

Fabric Choices

All fabrics are have been put through a washer and dryer before cutting out the masks, so you can safely machine-wash and tumble-dry them.  All elastics will degrade faster with heat, so feel free to replace them as they wear out.  If you need instructions, look here.

If you want to use bleach on your masks, you may want to stick to white cotton.  Warning: bleach can also cause elastics to degrade prematurely, meaning you may need to replace them periodically.  Read the FAQ on why you don’t necessarily need bleach, unless you just like using it.

If you would like a different material, colour, or print, please contact us with your requests.

If you have questions about the usefulness, care instructions, and safety of face masks, read through these frequently asked questions. Of course, being smart and educated people, you already know that none of this should ever be taken as medical advice or meant to substitute for official and standardized medical equipment, and is meant for personal choice and fashion purposes.  Do the hand-washing, social distancing thing!  And if you think you or yours have an illness, call your doctor.  Though of course there’s no reason you shouldn’t do any of these things while wearing puppy dogs or giraffe fabrics on your face….

Sizes

Put On A Good Face masks are currently available in four sizes: two adult, one adult XS/tween, and one child.  Not sure which size you want?  Look here for some guidance.

Adult (High fit):  Best for people with higher nose bridges, aquiline or larger noses, or a more forward mid-face area.  This fit is also good for people who prefer more breathing space between their face and the fabric, because the curve over the nose is taller (this does NOT mean more of a gap between you and the outside world — just a higher dome over your nose, cupped just as snugly around the edges).

Adult (Low fit): Best for people with low nose bridges, small or button noses, or a a flatter facial plane.  This fit would also be better if you like the feeling of fabric sitting closer to your face all over.

Adult X-Small/Tween: For adults with very narrow and/or small faces, teens with small faces, or pre-teen-aged children.

Child: A smaller version of adult masks, meant for older children who can understand how masks work.  Not for kids young enough to think masks are for chewing or throwing at grandma. PLEASE read entirely through the FAQ (especially the part about “Can I put a mask on my child?”) before considering masks for children.  Needless to say, if your child has any medical condition/s, consult your doctor before trying any mask.  If s/he finds a mask uncomfortable for any reason, or finds it hard to breathe through one, be ready to take it off immediately.  Remember, any object can be a choking hazard if a child decides to make it one, and masks offer no guarantee of any kind of protection.
