Vastex International has introduced a new Face Mask Pallet with a quick-stretch design for rapid screen printing on a wide variety of face mask types and styles. The pallet can be secured with two lock knobs to any Vastex press, or other presses with compatible rotor arms.

“The need and use of face masks is universal and, in many cases mandatory, enabling screen printers to replace or exceed imprinted garment jobs lost due to lock-downs on concerts, sports, schools and other group events,” said Mark Vasilantone, Vastex president. “Since they are disposable and purchased daily in the millions, masks hold enormous volume potential for printers, not only as custom jobs but as highly creative stock designs that can be sold online for political, athletic, comical or other applications.”

Rubber strips of the quick-stretch frame stretch single- or multi-layer masks over the diamond-shaped rubber-covered pallets, which flattens pleats and contours in the imprint area with no shifting or need for pallet adhesive, according to the company.

The never-warp pallet is constructed of high-strength steel and includes a holder for the template frame during re-loading of masks. A list of sources for face mask blanks is included as standard.

The company also offers shirt pallets in numerous stock and custom sizes, and over 5o specialized pallets for screen printing on long sleeves, pockets, legs, zippered garments, umbrellas, hats, koozies and other textiles and hard goods. Square and trapezoidal pallets in a variety of sizes allows printing on sizes from infant to adult XXL, as well as all-over printing.
