As shelter in place and stay at home orders are loosened and lifted, personal protective equipment (PPE) is becoming more and more commonplace and standard in businesses and the workplace. Face coverings are believed to be a practical way to protect others as well as yourself to some degree from airborne illnesses. If you are looking for branded or blank face coverings for your teammates or customers, we have some great options.
Face Coverings vs. Medical Grade Face Masks
What’s the difference between a face covering and a face mask? Face masks, such as N95 masks, are necessary for medical professionals. They provide medical-grade protection to protect those in healthcare professions or those who are on the frontlines. As a promotional products distributor, JDA Promo has chosen not to sell medical-grade face masks. We are leaving those to the experts.
We have found some great options for reusable, cloth face coverings, most of which can be branded and that is what we are focusing on. Face coverings are the best term we have found to use for non-medical grade coverings that are made of fabric including cotton. According to John Hopkins, while cloth face coverings are not medical-grade, they may be helpful in non-patient settings to contain coughs and to remind people to not touch their faces.
Face Covering Options
This pleated option with ties is one of our favorites so we provided these to our staff. It is now available in multiple colors: black, white, red, royal, navy, heather grey or heather charcoal. Made of two-ply antimicrobial cotton, you can get just 10 of these blank for only $5.25 each. These can also be heat sealed with your logo if that is something you desire. One thing about the ties vs. straps that go around your ears – straps around your ears are one size fits most. We do not all have the same size face so this covering with ties truly does fit everyone.
The Brooklyn Face Covering is made in the USA. It features three-layer construction of 95% polyester and 5% cotton – soft and breathable fabric. It comes in black and can be decorated with full color, custom design. Snag 150 of these decorated at $6.84 each.
This face-covering option is unique from others we have found. Rather than tying in the back or looping around the ears, this face covering comes with elastic head straps. Check out the picture below to see exactly what that means! These are $5.50 each for 24 pieces and come with a one color screen print. It’s made of 100% polyester.
The Brandana is fun face covering option because it can also be worn several different ways. Customize your Brandana with a Pantone matched imprint or full-color, full-bleed design and rock the design as a face covering or any other way you choose. Get 500 0f these for $3.04 each.
Our research shows that “experts” believe any face covering is better than nothing at all so for those who need something that is virtually disposable but not paper, the Bella + Canvas Jersey Daily Face Cover is made from t-shirt fabric. It is one layer of a cotton and polyester blend fabric. We suggest doubling up and wearing two of these at one time for more protection. This product comes in at $1.76 each for 120 blank face coverings.
Some of the options already come decorated. These options include screenprinting and full-color dye sublimation.
However, you may be saying, “what if I want the options that come blank?” You’re in luck. JDA Promo can thermo seal your logo on these in our production facility.
Another service we can provide is to individually bag the face coverings. This makes handing them out easy and helps to keep them clean until they are ready to be worn.
