Custom Face Shields UK
Custom printed face shields are both extremely comfortable and totally customisable. Create your own designs for each of the custom face shields, UK made to order, and enjoy cycling through each one and giving every day a totally different look. Your custom face shields can be machine washed on a standard 30°C wash cycle and they can even be washed at up to 60°C to keep them hygienic and for added peace of mind. As all custom printed face shields are handmade to order, we recommend washing before first use. Available in S,M,L and XL (please refer to our sizing chart).
Measuring Size For Face Shields
- Measure from the bridge of the nose to behind the ear
- Measure from the bridge of the nose to just below the chin
- Refer to our size chart. If your measurements are close to the size boundary, please order one size up
When you receive your face shield, you will notice there is a tag and arrow indicator on each face shield to help show which way up the mask should go. The tag should be on the left hand side so that the higher bridge of the mask is in line with your nose, and the more rounded edge of the mask on your chin.
Wholesale Custom Face Shields
You can add a custom printed face shield to your online store or to your Shopify via our drop-shipping account and you can set your own prices. These custom face shields are priced as low as they can be, to get you a really good value quality fabric mask, inc taxes. Shipping is premium tracked, and one price for any amount. We are not applying any wholesale discount as they are priced as low as we can go, however when you add these to your store you can set your own custom pricing. We print the fabric, cut and sew it, which is ideal for comfortable fitting masks. Minimum order is one pack of four. Large orders take longer to produce.
Before placing a large order, we recommend ordering a sample first to get a feel of the print, the quality and the size of the masks.
Please note: Custom face masks are NOT medical grade masks (which are recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as an infection preventative measure, i.e. grade FFP2/N95). So please DO NOT purchase custom face masks with the false understanding they will prevent infection from Corona virus. They are more about protecting others to reduce spread.

Design Your Own Fabric, with Contrado! from Contrado on Vimeo.
What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
How will my image scale?
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What is gsm?
Grams per square meter (gsm) is the unit of measurement used to measure the weight of a paper or fabric. This measurement uses the weight of one square metre (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a fabric. We classify fabrics of 10-100gsm as light (fabrics for summer, fine silk), fabrics of 101-249gsm as medium (most fabrics for clothing) and fabrics of more than 250gsm as thick (upholstery and other specialised fabrics).
What is the bleed area?
When creating your product, it is important to make sure that your image is a little wider than the size needed. In printing, the bleed area allows you to obtain a borderless print. We would advise filling the blead areas, maked with a red checkered area, to ensure you don't end up with white edges. You should make sure that you do not put important details within the bleed area as these will quite likely be lost.
What is crocking and why might it occur?
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colours are used. It can be minimised by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Why do my colours appear lighter on organic fabrics?
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
