Hello, we are Unified Packaging, Inc. Our primary business is Packaging, Binders and Bag manufacturing. Our facility has created, and will continue to create many beautiful products. We also do printing, die cutting, sewing, vacuum forming and more. When Covid-19 hit the United States, like most businesses we were impacted and continue to see the after effects. When we found out about the PPE shortage we saw an opportunity to help our community and keep our staff operational. We designed and manufactured face shields and cloth masks, we donated over 4,000 face shields to local first responders and hospitals, and with continued production, we turned to offering our product to the public thru our website Faceshields-USA.com.
We do this to not only support our community but it also supports our employees. We have a full-service manufacturing facility and have chosen to use it to provide protective products to anyone who needs them. We put the same care and dedication into these protective products as we do with our packaging products.
We do this from our hearts.
With that we have received a number of comments or concerns about protective products, and after some research I have found a few answers for you.
Fair Warning: This is advice based on the references below and advice from the CDC we are a manufacturer, not medical professionals.
Answer: The likelihood of getting viral particles under your shield is slim. “Someone would have to stand underneath you and sneeze up into you,” he said. “It would be an odd circumstance that would cause that.”- Dr. Amesh Adalja, a pandemic preparedness expert
Answer: Doctor Jennifer Ashton on Good Morning America States that it all depends on the fit, the fabric and how many feet apart you are. It is recommended that your cloth mask fits well, be at least three layers and cover both your nose and mouth. Using something to protect your self is better than nothing, creating that barrier and not spreading particles is what is recommended.
Answer: Face Shield can be a good alternative, they are easy to clean, they are not as hot as a face mask and don’t cause your glasses to fog up. On a study conducted in 2014 wearing a plastic face shield reduced the inhalation of droplets from a cough by 96%, protecting the wearer of the face shield.
Answer: As of today our kids face shields are ready for pre-order. The inventory we have is sized under “Youth” and will work for most children from age 4 to 11. The “Adult”-sized face shield fits more teens to adults.
• Youth/Kid Size: 8 ¼” tall x 10 ½” wide
• Teen/ Adult: 9 ¼” tall x 12 1/8” wide
Answer: This answer depends- cost is primarily determined by three factors, the cost of raw materials, the cost of labor and the cost of shipping. Our design was based on comfort and durability, we use comfort foam so you are able to wear the shield all day, and secure our face shield with rivets and sewing instead of glue. Feedback from healthcare workers told us that glue can easily dissolve when cleaned. Finally we used RPET plastic for the clear shield, as that was one of the medically approved materials to use for protective face shields. This design will cost more than a face shield that is just plastic glued to foam. The cost of labor is also important to consider as a buyer, the cost of labor in the United States often costs more than other countries, so if your product is made in the USA it can some times cost more than a product from another country.
Yes, our main business is manufacturing custom packaging, binders, boxes, bags, and now protective products. We take care in creating all our products, whether the product is for a retailer or for your personal protection.
