By now, you likely own at least one reusable face mask. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, wearing one in public settings is the best way to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Since masks are going to continue to be an everyday necessity for the foreseeable future, you should make sure you find one that’s not only comfortable and well-designed, but also something you enjoy wearing. And Vistaprint’s latest launch will check all of those boxes.
The online printing service partnered with four world-renowned artists to create a capsule collection of face masks with museum-worthy designs. Colorful, whimsical prints from Futura Laboratories , Jen Stark , Geoff McFetridge , and Parra now decorate Vistaprint’s original face masks, which launched back in May.

The machine-washable masks are made from multiple layers of lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric with extra stitching to ensure they’ll hold up for multiple uses. Each one has latex-free ear loops with adjustable beads to help alleviate painful tugging. But what makes Vistaprint’s masks so unique (besides their fresh new look) is the Replaceable Filter System (RFS) that adds an extra layer of safety. Studies have shown that filtered face masks can provide more protection than a typical single layer cotton mask. Filters can be purchased separately in packs of 10 to insert into your mask.
