Stay safe

Following government and health and safety guidelines is paramount for you and your customers. Get in touch with your media provider or one of our experts at Roland to ensure you use the right signage materials, textiles and inks for your product.

*It is the responsibility of the producer of the printed facial masks to certify them in accordance with local regulations as well as the level of protection offered by the masks.
The producer must set up the washing and sterilisation process. These processes can fade the image printed/sublimated. Roland DG will not be responsible for the fading of images, nor for the production and certification processes of the face masks.
For health reasons and to avoid any possible allergic reaction do not allow the printed side of the mask direct contact with the skin and follow the recommendations of your country's health institutions.
