DISCLAIMER! These masks are not 100% effective, and come with no guarantee. Research shows that these masks are approximately 60% effective blocking airborne germs. While they are made to CDC standards, common sense hygiene and frequent hand washing is recommended. A mask is better than no mask, but it’s still a safety mask. Not an invincibility Mario Star. Please stay safe.
SURGICAL VS N95
There are two types of face masks, both of them are triple layered for maximum protection and breath-ability. The standard surgical mask is the one that is most common, it is more loose fitting and intended to provide protection against large droplets, splashes, or sprays or bodily or other hazardous fluids. The N95 type mask is made with a pocket so you can insert a Hepa filter (NOT INCLUDED). If can insert your own Hepa filter, using vacuum cleaner bags or filters for AC units, cut to size. It is designed to reduce your exposure to smaller particles and should have a tighter seal around the face.
Masks should go from roughly the point of the chin to above the tip of your nose, completely covering your mouth and nostrils.
Medium masks are approx. 6.25″ wide, and 2.5″ tall laid flat or 5.5″ tall when expanded. For hat size 7 or smaller.
Large masks are approx. 7.5″ wide, and 2.75″ tall laid flat or 6.25″ tall when expanded. For hat size 7.5 or larger.
If you are buying for a child roughly age 10 or under, please buy a child’s size.
Please use the above sizing guide for N95-style masks as well, though mask dimensions may differ.
If you order a medium but need a larger size, our recommendation is to sanitize and sell/give your current one to a friend, then your reorder will be top priority.
PATTERNS OR COLOR
This is a national emergency, and all masks are made here in Seattle, WA. We are on state-wide quarantine, using fabric we already have on hand. Your options plain dark green, light blue, dark blue, or you can opt for a “fun” pattern. It could be floral, or octopus print, or light green swirls, or maybe even superhero print. Who knows. If you’re adventurous and down for getting something fun, thank you for understanding. If buying multiples, we will do our best to get a variety of print patterns in your shipment. We also have a ton of Star Wars fabric on hand if you want to be more specific.
