No. If you buy a mask in our store you will get a PDF with the instructions and templates needed to assemble and customize it to your liking. That’s why we don’t ask for your full address, we don’t do any kind of shipping.
All of our masks have been designed so that any average adult can wear them. Hekreates has assembled each design and has verified the size. If you are not sure, or if you would like to assemble the mask for a child, you can use the three rules below to make sure the mask is the correct size:
61 cm(Circumference of the head with reference of our designs) = 100% (Print scale – For average adult)
Your cm(Circumference of your head/ child’s head) = X%(Print scale – Adapted)
So: X% print scale = (Your head circumference in centimetres * 100) / 61.
Enter that % in the printing settings.
If you want to print the designs in a scale higher than 120%, we recommend to do it on a paper or cardboard A3 size, since in A4 size or US letter size some parts of the pieces may be cut.
Graphic description of how the circumference of the head should be measured.
To PRINT, you will need a printer with black ink and A4 or US card, with a minimum weight of 150 grams.
To CUT, a pair of scissors or a cutter will be your best allies.
To FOLD, A ruler, a set square or carpenter’s square will do the job, as long as it is not too thick.
To PASTE, use a glue stick, i.e. Pritt, for this step.
To CUSTOMIZE, the colored sprays or the acrylic paint will give life to your creations. You can also cut some stockings and stick them inside the mask covering some holes, such as the eyes, nose or mouth, so that the inside of the mask is hidden.

In some cases, for aesthetic reasons, we don’t want to show the eyes to make the mask look better, and we do it with one of the following methods:
a) We cover them by cutting out black socks, and we stick them inside the mask, stretched out enough so that you can see through them.
b) We cover them with Photoshop.
Our masks tend to be quite tight, although some of them are more spacious than others, the generic response is NO. There are many factors that might affect, such as the size and shape of your head, the size and shape of your glasses or the design of the mask. We recommend you use contact lenses.
If the product you have purchased is not free, once you have downloaded its linked digital file, the Tree-Nationplatform will send you, in the next 10 days, an email with the information related to the tree that has been planted thanks to your purchase in Our forest.
Occasionally, after we have recorded the tutorial and taken the pictures, we realize that we can still make small changes to improve your experience with mask assembling. They are usually insignificant variations (like changing one of the external folds from one piece to another or erasing a discontinuous line from a fold because it is not necessary), so you can continue assembling the mask without problems.

Generally, the image rights of videogame / series / movies / books characters are subject to international copyright, so creating and selling masks based on them would require the license of the design owners. Unfortunately, we do not have those licenses, but we have other designs that you can download for free in our store, under the section free masks.
