SWMI COVID-19 Relief
COVID-19 Relief Efforts
Looking for a way to help?
As you may or may not now, we have stopped manufacturing signs, personalizing mugs, customizing cutting boards in an effort to assist in keeping our healthcare workers, police officers, firefighters, and all other front-line workers safe!
We have joined forces with several "sewing groups" by cutting the fabric pieces they need to sew and distribute face masks to healthcare groups. Using our laser cutting equipment, we can cut their fabric in a fraction of the time, allowing them to dedicated time to sewing the masks. We are still accepting fabric cut requests. Please note, we don't sew or distribute the masks (you wouldn't want us to sew!!)
The masks being made are a much needed piece of protection to the workers. However, some mask designs utilize elastic straps that are placed behind the ears. Indications show that these straps are rubbing the backs of their ears and causing tremendous pain! Our solution, cut an "s-hook" out of acrylic, place it behind your head, loop the elastic straps through it, now, the elastic is off your ear!
If you are a front-line worker, or know someone that needs some of these hooks, please complete the request form here. We will cut them, package them, and ship them for FREE!
What else are we doing? There is now an immediate need for face-shields! Since cutting acrylic and PETG is a normal operation for our laser equipment, cutting face-shields is a no brainer! We have sourced the materials needed to begin manufacturing face-shields. We may not be able to make 1000's per day, but a few 100 per day still help!
To start, we will be distributing these to local hospitals at no cost!
So, as the title says, "How Can You Help?" Like every other small business, we have no sales revenue coming in. We are still able to help by cutting. Our supply of acrylic for the s-hooks is dwindling rapidly, and the shipping costs is eating into expenses even faster. The materials to make face-shields are quite expensive, but we've placed a few large orders to get started.
Our as to you.....If you have the means, we are asking any community member that is able, to help us with materials and shipping costs by making a small donation. Like 100% of us, we HATE to get those phone calls asking for money, but this time, you know it is for an AMAZING cause! 100% of the proceeds donated WILL translate into support for our front-line workers!
If you have any ideas or questions, or just want to talk, PLEASE feel free to call us at (888) [phone redacted].
