Vastex International has introduced a new face mask pallet with a quick-stretch design for screen printing on different varieties of face masks.

The high-strength steel, never-warp pallet features a holder for the template frame during the re-loading of masks, and can be secured with two lock knobs to any Vastex press, or to another press with a compatible rotor arm, explains the company.

“Rubber strips of the quick-stretch frame stretch single- or multi-layer mask material over the diamond-shaped, rubber covered pallets, flattening pleats and contours in the imprint area with no shifting or need for pallet adhesive.”

Mark Vasilantone, president of Vastex, commented: “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.

“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.”
