– just see our shop under “Custom Masks” for details.

glossy card - you just see the flash reflection!
Silk gives you a smooth semi gloss finish without the shine!

100% refund, guaranteed!

MOBILE USERS - HOW TO ALTER QUANTITY
If you are using a mobile device or tablet with the eBay app or eBay mobile internet version, the method to alter quantity is a little different to the normal PC version of ebay.
Firstly, just add the item to your basket, then click on your shopping basket on the top right of your screen.
DO NOT check out at this point, instead, you are now able to say how many you want so click the quantity (which will say 1 at this point) and hit the
"+" or "-" buttons, adjust the quantity you want and then checkout. Simples!
HOW TO CHOOSE A SUITABLE
IMAGE FOR A MASK
1. A High resolution photo
Don't panic! All cameras and phones made in the last 10 years will produce a picture with a high enough resolution to make a mask from!
The problem is, these days people save their photos to Facebook or Instagram and because sites like these store millions of photos, they have special software that shrinks photos by reducing their resolution. You can't tell when you look a the picture online because its quite small on your screen, but if you try to blow it up to A4 size for a mask, it looks like it's made of lots of little squares.
So remember folks, if possible, please try to avoid pictures from Facebook or any other online photo storage system. That includes stuff sent through Whatsapp or Snapchat etc.... we just want photos from a PC, Camera or a Phone just like the good old days!!
How can you tell if its good enough? Just zoom in to the picture until the face in it is the size of a face in real life - if it's made of blocks it's probably not suitable..
Be aware of other mask sellers encouraging these image types - they obviously don't care about the quality of their products!! If you really can't find an image anywhere but Facebook, send it over to us and we can always send you a proof to approve before we start production!
2. A Whole Face that is facing the camera
Yes, you wouldn't think I needed to tell anyone, but people really do send us side profiles and half of their friends heads!
Whilst we do have a resident Photoshop genius, rebuilding half of someones head is a little beyond us and would not be cost efficient for us, so we really do need all of their head! ;0)
You also need to remember, when we cut out the eyes, if they are not in the middle of the mask, then no one will be able to see out of it when they wear it!
3. A good quality shot
Whilst we appreciate that photo of your mate in the nightclub, with glow in the dark glasses on her face and her finger up her nose is a very funny photo, it does not make a good mask! Firstly, photos taken in dark pubs and clubs are rarely usable... photos taken in low light conditions are prone to being blurred and are subject to "speckling" all of which are made a lot worse when we blow the photo up to A4 size! The finger up the nose is hard because we have to stick within the confines of the size of the card we use, so we can't really fit hands in the mask as well as heads!.. For the same reason, please try to avoid Hats with brims and giant wigs too!
"My god you guys are fussy!"
Honestly we aren't! While we know the above sounds very complicated and technical, it all boils down to a simple photo from a Camera or phone of someone facing the camera in good light. See! that's not fussy!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to assemble my masks?
Yes - But unlike other custom mask suppliers, we do the hard bit for you and cut the eye holes out. We also supply sticky tabs to attach the elastic string so you don't need to make nasty holes in the mask, or tie fiddly bits of string! If you don't want to assemble them yourselves, check out our ebay shop, where you will find ready to wear custom masks at a very reasonable price!
Will any image work?
We prefer to have original shots (e.g. not from Facebook!) to create the best quality masks, but if you are struggling to find a high resolution image, send us what you have and we can send you a proof to make sure you are happy before we go to print!
How many photos can I use?
You can use one image for every 5 masks you order, so for example, if you order 15 masks, you can have 3 photos. If you order 10, you can have 2 photos and so on. We are happy to do single masks if the quantities are correct, so for example in you want 9 masks of the bride and 1 of the groom, thats fine if you ordered 10, as two photos are allowed for orders of 10.
How quick can I get them?
