The coronavirus has meant our usual habits have had to change in order to keep everyone safe. Now that society is slowly picking its activities back up and adapting to the situation, we must follow official directives: wash your hands often, avoid physical contact, and wear face masks where and when appropriate.
You can start by finding out which are the best masks for you. Whichever you choose, you want to encourage everybody to wear them.
A good way to show that staying safe is not a chore, is to get involved and make it something fun, fashionable even. It is now very easy to make your own design thanks to online design tools such as Canva, offering thousands of pictures, icons and patterns.
You want to design your own to stay safe and look good at the same time? Here is some inspiration for easy designs to make your own personalised mask!
You may want yours to look natural, or even blend in. With a little twist, it can be quite amusing… Check out our ideas below:
1. Animal mouth for kids
Kids get bored easily. It can be difficult to get them involved in staying safe. Why not print an animal mouth on the protective mask to make it pleasant to wear? They can wear it proudly and show off to all their friends. Thus, encouraging more kids to do the same! Don’t forget to get special sized face masks for children.
A simple yet wholesome look, to remind people there are always things to smile about.
3. Real face
If you had issues unlocking your phone with face recognition these days, this design is for you. Printing a real face mask is a great way to give people a good laugh. Go for your own, a friend’s or a celebrity’s and make people guess!
If you want to go for something more simple yet original, you can look for cool mask patterns such as:
4. Geometric pattern
Definitely a modern design, a colourful geometric pattern is great to wear for a stroll in town. Choose basic colours like black and white to go with any clothing. You are certain your mask will look dashing, and will compliment your outfit to perfection. Make sure the printing quality is good enough to guarantee the best results for your personalised face mask. Luckily, such high print quality can be found at Helloprint!
5. Floral pattern
A classic for a distinguished spring/summery look. Choose lighter colours to make your design look less stuffed. Social distancing has never been so fashionable!
6. Tropical pattern
Tropical patterns have become very popular everywhere. Even for mask fashion. It is now very easy to find such cool mask patterns online or even make your own.
7. Japanese pattern
