The Who, What, and Why of Custom Bulk Face Masks

The idea of bulk face masks might make you think of a medical storage supply closet or even an over-prepared individual with a stockpile of toilet paper as well. But for savvy businesses and practical organizations, there is much more to buying bulk quantities of wholesale face masks. Customized bulk face masks are an opportunity. 

How’s that? Read on to learn the who, what, and why of this new and necessary product. 

Who can benefit from buying custom bulk face masks?

As we all do our best in this new normal, wearing a fabric face mask when out on the town is what we can do to help. The new leaving-the-house checklist is: keys, wallet, phone, mask. And because they are now essentially a part of our outfits, trendsetters have put their creativity to work designing unique custom styles

So while we all benefit from wearing face masks, and custom designs can turn them into stylish accessories, who benefits from ordering custom masks in bulk?

Well, to name just a few…

  • Schools: A stash of face masks designed with your school colors or mascot will come in handy when students inevitably forget their own. Plus they are a great booster item.
  • Universities: Stock your college apparel shop with a bulk face mask order emblazoned with school pride (or funny memes). 
  • Hotels, airlines, and restaurants: Add branded face masks and a professional finish to your employee uniform. Offer custom face mask merch to customers in a pinch or in your gift shop. 
  • Any business or organization looking for a unique promotional item that is also uniquely useful to their customers can benefit from customized bulk face masks. 

What’s involved in getting your hands on custom bulk face masks?

Unlike a box of disposable masks that eventually ends up in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, these are meant to last and feature a custom design. So, there are just a few more steps than a 1-click order. To get the most out of your bulk face masks purchase, just follow these steps:  

  1. Determine the quantity. Bulk order minimums are typically 100 pieces.
  2. Pick your sizes. Fabric face masks should fit well, so choose from Toddler, Kids, Adult, and Adult XL.
  3. Create your custom design. Custom apparel companies like Candor Threads listen to your ideas and work with you to get your design just how you want it. 
  4. Choose any additional features. Nose wires, adjustable ear loops, or an added pocket for inserting your own mask filter can be added to your order. 

Once your order is complete, it takes 3-4 weeks to arrive. This is a great time to promote them. Notify staff or students they are coming soon. Let customers know they’ll be available for purchase – or that there is a token of your appreciation on the way. 


Aside from the practical and promotional benefits of ordering custom bulk face masks, there’s another simple reason. It’s a way to show your employees, customers, students, or members that you care about them.

Like in old movies when a kind someone offered their handkerchief, or the proverbial cup of sugar from a neighbor, or the unexpected gift of a bottle of water on a hot day. Its a small act, a little thing, that communicates care and solidarity. And at this moment, short of a gift certificate for delivery food, that is the most valuable currency.
