Cloth Bags & COVID-19

At Printnovation, our Basic Cloth Bags have always been made from US Sourced medical grade 100% cotton.

Based on the current crisis, we've switched our manufacturing capabilities to making non-medical face coverings using these same materials: 100% cotton, US sourced and made, and completely reusable.

What you need to know ...

CDC recommends that everyone wear cloth face coverings when leaving their homes, regardless of whether they have fever or symptoms of COVID-19

  1. The cotton drawstring bags and masks you purchase from us at Printnovation are made from the highest quality materials - equal to those items used to keep hospitals and medical facilities clean and safe. All of our materials are sourced within the United States.
  2. COVID-19 becomes inactive over three times faster on 100% cotton materials than on plastic and plastic fabric In fact, in lab testing, the virus captured by 100% cotton material rapidly lost its ability to cause infection and became inactive in minutes instead of hours or even days. (Clinical Infectious Diseases Vol41 #7)
  3. Face masks and reusable bags made with 100% cotton material provide the user a layer of protection and are durable enough for multiple washings and wearings.  In lab testing, 100% cotton materials that were infected with COVID-19 and washed using common household detergents were found to be decontaminated after one wash.

Our masks are custom designed for comfort and ease of use. There are no 'elastic straps' to irritate your ears or wires to hold the mask in place. They use a unique "quick clamp" for simple on/off security. They're easy to disinfect through normal home washing ... no need for heavy chemicals or commercial grade UV lighting. Unlike other materials (especially non-woven or woven polypropylene, nylon or polyester) you can use them, throw them in the washer and use them again.

About our masks ... 

Our masks, just like our bags, are made in the USA (Longmont, Colorado). We use only first run, US supplied medical grade 100% cotton fabric. We do not use roll-ends or scrap materials in the manufacturing process

Each mask is subjected to over 400 degrees (F) in the final process which insures a clean, contaminant free product. They are then packed in FDA approved re-closable bags for shipment to you. You can be certain they arrive as clean as when they leave our site.

And the best part is the masks are washable and reusable over and over again!

How to Properly Wear a Face Covering

Machine Washing Instructions ...

  • After use, turn the masks face side out and wrap the strings as shown.
  • Wash in warm water in a mesh laundry bag (or the provided bag). Use light detergent - no bleach.
  • Hang dry or tumble dry on low heat setting.
  • Do not iron printed masks after washing.

There may be some shrinkaage and fading over time but the mask can be wahed and reused many times.

Best of all - because it is 100% cotton, the mask is totally recycable.

Printing & Customizing Your Mask

Use our unique proprietary digital printing process to personalize your mask. Print as many colors as you like on either the right or left side of the mask (or both sides, if you like). From simple to complex designs, from one mask to thousands, we can print it.

Using Our High-Speed Digital Transfer process, the image is printed on a specially modified substrate and quickly transfered to your mask under high heat and pressure (typically 450+°F @ 150+psi for 1 to 2 seconds). This bonds the image directly to the cloth fibers leaving a clean copy. .

Unlike screen printing systems, our process uses no harmful chemicals or solvents of any kind making it very eco-friendly.  Also, since all of the colors are applied at once, there is never a registration issue with the final image.

Since the ink actually bonds to the cloth fibers, all of the products (masks or bags) printed using our process are completely washable and can be dried in homer dryers. The inks will not run and the products can be cleaned an reused over and over.

Answers to  Questions

Why wear a cloth face covering?

The CDC recommends that people wear a cloth face covering to cover their nose and mouth in the community setting. This is to protect people around you if you are infected but do not have symptoms.

When should I wear a cloth face covering?

A cloth face covering should be worn whenever people are in a community setting, especially in situations where you may be near people. These settings include grocery stores and pharmacies. These face coverings are NOT a substitute for social distancing.

What type of face covering should be worn?

Cloth face coverings should be ... cloth. 100% cotton has been found most effective (The New England Journal of Medicine, April 16, 2020).

Should I still maintain 6 foot distancing?

Yes. Wearing cloth face coverings is an additional public health measure people should take to reduce the spread of COVID-19. CDC still recommends that you stay at least 6 feet away from other people (social distancing), frequent hand cleaning and other everyday preventive actions. A cloth face covering is not intended to protect the wearer, but it may prevent the spread of virus from the wearer to others. This would be especially important if someone is infected but does not have symptoms. View CDC’s guidance on how to protect yourself.

Who should not wear cloth face coverings?

Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children younger than 2 years of age, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cover without assistance.

Will the mask shrink when washed?

Because the mask is made from untreated 100% cotton fabric, you can expect some shrinkage after washing. This should not affect the overall fit of the mask..

Can I use fabric softener when washing/drying?

This is really your choice. Many fabric softeners contain scents which you may find objectionable when worn directly over your mouth or nose.

Should I use bleach when washing?

We do not recommend using bleach. It is not necessary to clean the mask ... light detergent will do the trick. Bleaching can cause irratation if not properly rinsed.
