Important Mask Info – Please Read

LOVE THE ONE YOU GET: We’re offering a number of patterns for you to choose; our two-layer masks have different designs on each side to be worn either way. Each is handmade and due to the way the fabric is cut,  pattern design may vary slightly. We promise you all our Laurel Burch patterns are fabulous, so please think of it as our special surprise for you!

PLEASE BE PATIENT: Laurel Burch Studios is a small company and we're making masks as quickly as we can. We’re proud to be offering supplemental income to our dedicated at-home QuaranTeam mask makers; however, we only have one person to manage our order fulfillment process and that’s me – Aarin Burch. I assure you that we’ll do our very best to make as many masks as possible and get them to you as quickly as the postal service can deliver them.  

SORRY, NO WHOLESALE INQUIRES: Our face mask price reflects our sustainable cost of manufacturing and direct sales, and so we’re offering the same price to all purchasers with no additional margin for wholesale distribution or discounts.

ALL MASK SALES ARE FINAL: For health reasons, fabric face masks cannot be returnable. All sales are final. If your mask is not to your liking, please wash and dry it, seal it in a plastic bag, and give it to a family member or friend. Thank you!

The bottom line is that when you practice social distancing, wash your hands and wear a mask whenever you leave the house, you’re not only protecting others, you’re also lowering the risk that you’ll get sick. More reasons for wearing a face mask in public include:

  • You’re diverting demand for precious medical-grade masks, which should be reserved exclusively for medical personnel and first responders.
  • You’re giving yourself a reminder to keep your hands off your face.
  • You’re signaling that you take this crisis seriously, and others should too.
  • You’re helping the containment effort by keeping germs off public surfaces.

PLEASE REMEMBER: Public health officials and medical professionals have repeatedly emphasized that fabric face masks are NOT “personal protective equipment” (PPE) and there is little scientific research showing more than 50% efficacy of fabric masks for personal disease protection. WEARING A FACE MASK OF ANY KIND IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR OTHER PRECAUTIONS such as physical distancing, washing your hands, and keeping your hands off your face.

MASK CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Machine wash with mild laundry detergent (do not use fabric softener) before you wear it. This will make your mask fresh and soft and you should repeat the process after every use to keep your mask clean and germ free.

HELP FOR EYEGLASS FOGGING: This is a common face mask issue, but if you try putting your glasses on top of the mask, about 1/2 inch forward from the top, this may be enough to redirect your exhale flow to prevent fogging.

WHY THE PRICE CHANGE: Due to an increase in the cost of face mask material and production ramp up, we must also slightly increase the price of our Laurel Burch QuaranTeam Masks. This increase directly supports our ability to provide more people in our community with masks and help us reach our goal of donating a large percentage of the masks we make to local healthcare professionals and essential workers on the front lines of this pandemic. Thank you for your understanding and your participation as an important member of our Laurel Burch QuaranTeam!
