Design your own custom face shields and be the talk of the town while keeping your face protected from outside influences when out and about. Created using a reversible bucket hat - which you can decorate with design, patterns and text - and a plastic visor that is attached under the hat brim using press studs. When not in use, the visor can be rolled up and stored away. Choose from a denim, oil cloth or canvas visor hat. The visors can be finished with cream or black binding.
These custom face shields provide you with two products in one: a bucket with visor. The bucket hat is reversible and made from denim, oil cloth or canvas fabric. The detachable plastic visor keeps you protected from grime and dirt. The visor is made from a clear plastic and finished with a choice of cream or black binding around the edge. It is attached to the hat with press studs placed at intervals under the hat brim. The visor can only be attached to one side of the hat, with the back of the press studs visible on the inside reverse of the hat (see images). When not in use, it can be rolled up and stored away. The custom printed face shields are available in several sizes for children and adults.
Design your own face shield inside and out; the bucket hat is reversible so you can switch up your style from day to day.
Denim bucket hats are lightweight and easy to transport. Typically, they are crease proof so perfect for keeping in your bag whenever you head out. Made from a 100% cotton, the denim has a hard wearing drill weave texture.
Oil cloth is perfect for a bucket hat for all weather. This waterproof material is made from a 100% cotton with a PVC finishing coat. The material itself is perfect for bright prints and has a very subtle texture. The PVC coat ensures the hat is quite sturdy, and a little stiffer than other options.
Canvas fabric is ideal for bright and bold colours. Like the denim bucket hat, canvas is ideal for transporting and rolling up in your bag to use when out and about.
Measuring Size For Face Shield: Find Your Visor Hat Size
Our face shields are made using your hat size:
Measure around your head from the ear and back round. Use this to find the correct size on our size chart
Your visor will come in one of two sizes, depending on your hat size: S-2XL visors will be 48cm x 20cm. XS visors will be 38 x 19cm.
Refer to our size chart. If your measurements are close to the size boundary, please order one size up
Please note: Custom face shield are NOT medical grade. So please DO NOT purchase this custom face shield with the false understanding they will prevent infection from Corona virus.
Bucket Hat or Face Shield
When designing your custom printed face shield, be sure to add your main designs to the top side of your bucket hat. That way, you can use this design as both a hat or face shield. Your second design, on the inside of the visor hat, can only be used as a hat rather than a face shield: The visor is attached at press studs around the perimeter of the hat, therefore the reverse design will feature the back of the press studs and these will be visible.
Wash at 30°c, low tumble dry heat, hang to dry, do not wring, low heat iron.
Please clean your custom printed face shields regularly. Aim to wipe down the visor with alcohol or warm soapy water after every use. The bucket hat can be machine washed at 30 degrees.
What can I use my face shield for?
As this custom face shield is a bucket hat with visor combination; there are many uses for it! You can use the shield to cover your face and protect you from grime, dirt or bad weather. When not at work, you can remove the visor and simply use your hat to protect your head from the sunshine.
How do I know which size face shield to order?
To find the right size for you, we take your hat measurements. Measure around your head from the ear to get the best size fit. Depending on the size you select, you will receive a 48 x 20cm visor, or a 38 x 19cm visor. Refer to our size chart to see where your measurements fit into the sizes. If your measurements are close to the size boundary, please order one size up.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
How will my image scale?
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What is gsm?
Grams per square meter (gsm) is the unit of measurement used to measure the weight of a paper or fabric. This measurement uses the weight of one square metre (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a fabric. We classify fabrics of 10-100gsm as light (fabrics for summer, fine silk), fabrics of 101-249gsm as medium (most fabrics for clothing) and fabrics of more than 250gsm as thick (upholstery and other specialised fabrics).
What is the bleed area?
When creating your product, it is important to make sure that your image is a little wider than the size needed. In printing, the bleed area allows you to obtain a borderless print. We would advise filling the blead areas, maked with a red checkered area, to ensure you don't end up with white edges. You should make sure that you do not put important details within the bleed area as these will quite likely be lost.
What is crocking and why might it occur?
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colours are used. It can be minimised by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Why do my colours appear lighter on organic fabrics?
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Can you perfectly join two separately printed panels?
We always try to provide the utmost precision in printing and manufacturing. However, due to unavoidable stretching or movement of the fabric at the time of sewing, we can not guarantee a perfect alignment of the pattern on the seams of the garment. Generally we are accurate to 2-3mm, which is sufficient for most reasons but can pose minor problems with patterns or geometric designs.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Is it possible to print your own label?
Most of our clothing is made with a label space. You can print your label and add information about your brand. If you want to sew your own labels, we offer customizable labels of different sizes.
Can I print on both sides of the fabric?
We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.
Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them like you do with the normal fabric labels?
At the moment no, our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now this is the best choice. The labels are all cut the same way. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into label format.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
Why are there slight colour differences between my orders?
We work at improving our colour profiles all the time. Though rare it may happen that from one print run to another, and there could be slight colour differences, this is normal and part of the process when we are constantly improving. It is extremely unlikely that there will be a huge difference (like orange instead of red for example). Please bear in mind such colour variations can be intensified from fabric to fabric due to the varying grains and textures of the fabric; natural fabrics tend to have more muted colours than their poly alternatives. This is due to the construction of the materials as well as the print methods that have to be altered slightly for more delicate, natural textiles.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
