For hundreds of years, masks have been worn all over the world for a myriad of reasons. They have been used as disguises by everyone from actors to bandits; in religious ceremonies, and as part of holiday festivities. They have served as punishment for criminals, and as a way of protecting the righteous (we haven’t forgotten about Zorro and the Lone Ranger, have we?).
Today, masks are primarily serving a new purpose – helping us protect ourselves and those around us by slowing the spread of the coronavirus.
We are pleased to tell you that after much research and testing, we have found several masks to offer in a variety of styles and colors. Take a look at the masks page on our site to see what our favorite options are.

“The Shining Star Award isn’t presented annually — it’s when we find someone who is deserving, and that person is Ellen,” said Woman’s Club Committee Member Sherry Plotkin. “She is persistent, driven and consistently helps others in so many ways.”
“I’m thrilled to be a Shining Star,” said Ellen. “The joy of building a business has been creative, exciting and very hard work. It’s been a wonderful and amazing journey. I’m so honored and happy to see my friends and so many women who have contributed so much to this community and to the world. Thank you all for making this amazing day possible.”
Since 1977, the Los Angeles Philharmonic has celebrated the work of renowned film composer John Williams with live concerts at the Hollywood Bowl. Williams himself has been conducting the LA Phil at these special performances since 1978.
Ellen’s Silkscreening recently helped the Hollywood Bowl get ready for it’s annual John Williams concert by screen printing a beautiful full color design of the iconic Star Wars Death Star floating over the Bowl. While Ellen’s doesn’t have quite as long a history with the Bowl as John Williams, we just celebrated the 16th anniversary of our partnership with the Bowl.
To read more about the history of John Williams at the Hollywood Bowl, the LA Phil has a great piece on their site.
