Frequently asked questions
Are the face shields free?

If you are requesting face shields for frontline workers, they are free - we are offering them by donation and are not and do not plan on selling them. However, they do cost around $2 each to make—if you would like to support the work we are doing, please invite your communities to donate to our cause. All donations are tax-deductable.

Can my hospital accept your face shields?

Both of our designs are approved by the NIH which makes it easier to bring into hospitals across the U.S.

Are you only taking requests from within Washington State?

We have mainly been fielding requests from Washington state, however we accept requests from anywhere in the U.S.,

Are they comfortable to wear?

Yes. This is a real quote from a real doctor: "This is so comfortable I don't want to take it off."

What's the limit to what I can request?

Please request only as many as you need. These face shields are designed to be easy to sanitized and used repeatedly. We recommend one per person.

How long does it take for my request to be filled?

There's currently a wait of up to 10 weeks from request to fulfillment with an average of 2 weeks. However, as injection molding operations start to ramp up, the wait will be much shorter.

If I’m not in healthcare, can I request face shields?

Yes, if your community is in need of face shields for protection please submit a form. We will be able to assess your needs on an individual basis.
