Branded Face Masks & Printed Face Coverings For A New Normal
With the impact of COVID-19 resulting in the so-called 'new normal' for many of us, there’s never been a more pressing time to consider what your business can do to help its colleagues and customers feel more comfortable and protected from the threat of germs. When it comes to working out what you can do, there’s no better place to start with branded face masks.
Whether your business wants to ensure the wellbeing of colleagues, demonstrate support to customers or perhaps support a local community group, Total Merchandise is here to help!
In light of the government advice given on face masks, UK citizens are being asked to wear face coverings on public transport as well as in shops, cinemas, takeaway cafes/restaurants, places of worship and museums (list accurate as of 22 September 2020). Face masks are arguably a key symbol of social distancing, and their presence can also help a workplace to feel more COVID-secure. Our range of branded face masks and printed face coverings is ideal for working environments and will also help the wearer to feel more at ease as they adapt to a new way of life.
With many of our branded reusable face masks offering protection from harmful particles - including bacteria, as well as dust and pollen - they're a must-have item to ensure the wellbeing and safety of your customers in 2021.
When Do Brits Currently Need To Wear Face Masks?
As of December 2020, government guidelines state that Brits should wear face masks when:
- On public transport, including buses and trains
- When travelling by plane or ferry
- By visitors and out-patients at hospitals
- By staff and customers in retail environments
- By staff and customers in hospitality settings (unless seated to dine)
- By users of taxis and private hire vehicles
- In supermarkets
- In banks and post offices
- In exhibition halls and conference centres
- In auction houses
- In community centres, youth centres and social clubs
- In coffee shops and takeaway food outlets, such as cafes or fast-food restaurants (masks can be removed if the customer is dining in)
- In premises that provide hospitality (including bars, pubs and restaurants), except when seated at a table to eat or drink
- Inside indoor shopping centres
- In visitor attractions and entertainment venues, including museums, galleries, theatres and cinemas
- In places of worship
As of September 2020, a fine of £200 is payable by anyone who is found to be not wearing a face covering without an acceptable explanation.
Face masks are compulsory in Scottish secondary schools and as of August 25 2020, schools across England were given the option to decide whether or not they want pupils to wear face coverings when they return to the classroom in September. Secondary schools in areas of 'high Covid transmission' will also be asked to ensure that pupils are wearing face masks.
Of course, wearing face coverings isn’t the only thing people can do in order to reduce the threat of germs. We would always advise people to incorporate promotional face masks into other usual health and hygiene practices, including regular hand washing.
We have a range of other social distancing products that might also be of interest to your business as part of adhering to government guidelines.

Whether you’re looking for reusable face masks, long-lasting promotional snoods or single-use disposable face masks, Total Merchandise has got your business covered.
Our promotional face masks range includes everything from Graid Surgical Face Masks (also available with a custom label or in a promotional envelope) through to Double Layer Reusable Face Masks, which can be washed and re-worn.

To find the face masks that best match the unique requirements of your business, simply use our 'Quantity Required' box (top left) to find the perfect fit for your needs.
It's worth noting that whilst some of our branded masks don't technically qualify as personal protective equipment (PPE), they are essential items for helping the wearers minimise germ-spreading hand-to-face contact.
Tackle Back To Work Nerves With Promotional Face Coverings
Masks branded with your logo are a great way to demonstrate that your business is taking the health and wellbeing of its employees and clientele seriously. With recent YouGov research revealing that many Brits have so-called ‘coronaphobia’ and are anxious at the thought of everyday activities, there’s no time like the present to help make the transition to a new way of living a bit less unnerving.
With the government announcing the wearing of face masks will be compulsory on public transport, including trains and buses, the need to ensure your staff are able to safely and comfortably get to work is key. Equally, once they're in the workplace, ensuring they feel protected is just as crucial.
Whether you opt to have your promotional face coverings designed with a message of support or a stylish pattern, custom branded masks are a great way to show your company is doing what it can to support the people who matter to it most.
Our range of promotional face masks and protective snoods are also ideal for helping to protect the wearer against pollution, with many of our designs offering both a comfortable wearing experience that has safety and wellbeing at its core.
One thing's for certain: whether you plan to distribute them among staff for use in-house, give them to attendants of a corporate event (such as a trade show or conference) or deliver them to customers through the post, these branded giveaways are a highly effective way to help assuage worries and assert your business as one that cares.
Minimising the chance of infection and helping to avoid cross-contamination, our promotional face masks make a brilliant promotional giveaway for easily distributing as part of health campaigns and more, as well as for keeping in-stock for your staff to use as and when required in the future.
Face Masks For Children Available To Order Today
Whilst many of our branded face masks can be comfortably adjusted to suit different head shapes, we do also have face coverings available that have been specifically designed for children.
Our Children's Face Mask Packs are ideal for schools to order in bulk, with each set containing five child-sized disposable masks and an optional-use silicon strap to help adjust the size. Older children will like the comfort-fit of our Double Layer Reusable Face Mask, which is available in five colours and is printed with your school's logo in full colour.
Similarly, our Organic Cotton Face Masks can make a great choice if you're in a hurry ahead of the schools reopening; delivered plainstock, dispatch for these promotional face coverings is available from just four working days.
For university and college students, our Student Hygiene Packs are worth considering; doubling-up as a handy Freshers' gift, each set contains a reusable face mask printed with your branding, as well as a promotional hand sanitiser spray and a bottle opener printed with your logo.
Keep It Comfortable With Printed Face Mask Straps
It doesn’t end with the branded face masks themselves. The ear straps of a typical face mask can begin to pinch and rub after a while, resulting in sore, aggravated skin for the wearer. As such, our face mask straps can make a great addition to any orders of face masks or printed face coverings that you’re considering.
These simple yet smart devices are worn against the back of the head and help to relieve the pressure of masks’ elasticated straps on sensitive ears. The wearer has full control over how loose or tight they wish to wear the mask thanks to a series of easy-use notches, which are designed to allow for different fits to a range of adult head sizes.
With your artwork clearly printed in the centre of each branded face mask strap, it offers fantastic visibility for your logo, as well as a smart, professional touch to staff appearances. Also available in plain stock, they can be ordered in quantities as low as 500 units, with dispatch available from just six working days.
