Product Set-Up: Face Masks
We are excited to announce Face Masks are now available to be added to Artist Shops, with donations going to the non-profit MedShare. Face Masks are being slowing rolled out to Artist Shops with new shops being added all the time. If you would like to add them to your Shop, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get them added.
100% of the net proceeds that Threadless earns for each sale of these masks are being donated to MedShare, up to a $100K maximum donation. Since we hit this goal, Threadless has now upped the goal to $250,000, with a portion of the proceeds for each face mask sale going to MedShare. MedShare is a humanitarian aid non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of people, communities, and our planet. They source and directly deliver surplus medical supplies and equipment to communities in need around the world. We’re excited to be raising funds for such an important non-profit like this during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Like your other Artist Shop products, your Artist Earnings are the difference between the sale price and the base fee. If you are interested in donating a portion of your proceeds to MedShare, here is some more information here about how to automatically share a percentage of your earnings.
About Face Masks
We offer four styles of face masks: Premium, Regular, Youth Large, and Youth Small. You can check out the different masks styles here
Our four faces masks styles are constructed using two layers of 100% polyester cloth, form-fitting to lay across the bridge of the nose, and printed on one side. Thanks to over-the-ear elastic loops, each mask is easy and comfortable to wear. You can find more mask details in the Product Information link on each styles' product page. These masks are also reusable, machine washable, and should be properly sanitized after each use per CDC guidelines.
Note: These masks are NOT intended for medical or healthcare workers, and should not be confused with N95 respirators or other personal protective equipment (PPE). We make no warranties, either express or implied, that these face masks prevent infection or the transmission of viruses or diseases.
Setting up your Face Mask Files
While you’ll be able to add Face Masks to existing designs automatically from the Product page the placement might not be optimized. We recommend using the template below. Here are a few things to keep in mind when using the template.
- It can be opened with any program that can edit
a .PSD file.
- Photoshop is recommended, but programs like GIMP can be used with the template.
- Tileable patterns or repeating designs can be easier to work with.
- The dotted lines are the Safe Zones for your designs.
- The file must be saved in RGB and sized 3196 x 2000 px 300 dpi JPG
