You probably know Custom Ink for screen-printed t-shirts for groups, but did you know that they also make blank and custom-printed face masks? It’s true, and they’ve become quite popular with groups, companies, and organizations. Plus, most styles are made in the USA and North America, which is a plus! So, are Custom Ink masks any good?
Let’s look at mask designs, customer reviews, optional filters, and the cost to decide if you should buy them for your group. If you do, you can currently enjoy free shipping plus an EXTRA $5+ off your order! (*coupons here)
Custom Ink Masks
Before we get into customer reviews, I want to give you a quick overview of Custom Ink reusable masks. First, Custom Ink sells 2 kinds of masks:
- Printed masks with dozens of designs at maskforit.com
- Customized masks or blank masks in several styles here
There are 3 popular styles of customized masks including: Basic Cloth Face Masks, Finished-Edge Masks, and Triple-ply cotton face masks.
1. Pre-Printed Mask Designs:
Custom Ink also offers masks printed with designs including Class of 2021, Black Lives Matter, and more for $9.99 each sold from MaskForIt.com. Buy 2 get 1 free !
*Tip: New customers will see a pop-up window with a 10% off coupon appear on the homepage after 20 seconds like this:

2. Basic Cloth Face Masks: (Custom or Blank)
Custom Ink Basic cloth masks are their cheapest mask option. Essentially they are made of t-shirt material and have slits cut for your ears. You can buy blank masks, masks with a design, or customize your own:
Here are photos of Custom Ink Basic masks from customer reviews:
Customer reviews for the Basic masks have a number of complaints. While it’s tempting to consider these cloth face masks because of their low price, I think they also look and feel cheap.
As you can see from this photo from a customer’s bad review, the Custom Ink Basic masks are really just a strip of t-shirt material with no elastic for your ears and no wire around the nose to help the masks fit tightly.
I would not recommend buying the Basic masks in most cases, and the only thing good about them is that they are made in the USA. However, I still wouldn’t buy them and would spend more for a better mask!
3. Finished Edge Masks
If you want a step up in quality from the no-frills, cheap “Basic” face masks, try the Finished Edge Masks that add a stitched edge. Add your own design, or choose from one of Custom Ink’s many designs:
Finished Edge masks are a step up from Basic, but not as highly rated as Custom Ink Triple-Ply cotton masks:
4. Triple-Ply Cotton Face Masks
Triple-Ply masks are Custom Ink’s most popular style of face mask, and they are the highest-rated in custom reviews.
As you can see, the Triple-Ply masks include elastic ear loops instead of just having slits cut in the fabric like the Basic masks. They also look more substantial.
Tip: Try to use only 1-2 colors in your design or logo. All custom masks are screen-printed by hand, so the price goes up significantly for every color you add!
None of Custom Ink’s masks have filters or are considered to be PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). but the fabric does have silver and copper for their antimicrobial properties. So, while they are appropriate for most public use they obviously are not intended to be used in hospital or clinical settings where significant Coronavirus exposure may occur!
5. Face Masks With Filter:
Filtered face masks are available in packs of 1 or 10. Each mask comes with 10 disposable filters.
Filtered masks are 100% cotton with an adjustable nose bridge, elastic ear loops, and antimicrobial finish. You can also buy filter refills in packs of 30. View all masks

Custom ink sells several styles of blank and custom-printed masks. While I would not recommend Basic, the cheapest style, the others are worth considering. Customer reviews are generally positive, but there are some complaints like the masks’ lack of an adjustable wire for snug fit around the nose. I recommend that you read customer reviews on CustomInk.com to see if their masks meet your needs.
