Maker Video: Fabric Roll of Facial Mask Clipped Design Printed on Large Format Sublimation Printer and Pressed

Not wearing a mask is now a criminal offence in South Africa. The penalty is a fine or imprisonment for a period not exceeding six months or to both such fine and imprisonment. This penalty is now contained in regulation 14(5) of the regulations.

Wearing face masks in public has become compulsory and now a routine. The reason for this is it has been proven that wearing non-medical face masks has proven to help slow down the spread of Covid-19. Wearing a mask not only protects you, it also prevents you from spreading harmful droplets should you be asymptomatically infected. It is very crucial for you to take note of the fact that wearing a mask should not prevent you from the routine of washing your hands regularly, staying at home when possible, and maintaining a 6-foot distance from others in public. It has been found that fabric masks could reduce spread by 50 to 100%, depending on their design and use.

The market for face masks is growing at an exponential rate and is set to grow even greater during the period 2019-2025 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are looking to get into a business that is currently in demand or if you are already in signage and want to expand on your profit margin what better way to do it than to manufacture and sell face masks.
