When the Coronavirus pandemic closed schools, canceled sports, and essentially shut our core athletic apparel business down, we converted our factory into a PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) production operation to help supply urgently needed medical supplies to the Philadelphia community. During this time, we designed, produced and went to market with face coverings of all types from typical 2-layer cloth masks and neck gaiters (buffs) to face shields and even a “virus busting” 3-layer mask. We also figured out quickly how to cost-effectively produce high quality custom face masks for sports teams and businesses. Needless to say, we know a thing or two about face masks…not because we wanted to, but because we had to. In this article, we’re going to discuss in detail the different types of masks and also address some frequently asked mask and face covering questions.
