Black Lives Matter - Soft, Reusable, 3-ply, Adult face masks
Black Lives Matter. We are doing our best to be allies, to learn, to listen, to speak up, and to help.
Initially, we were hesitant to make a BLM, “I Can’t Breathe”, or protest related mask, not because we don’t want to proudly wear them, but because we were worried about making sure we are in no way profiting from this movement.
However, we have had people contact us asking for these masks. So, after a lot of thought, here’s what we’ve decided: If you want a BLM or “I Can’t Breathe” mask, you can order them from us, but if you have the chance to support a business run by POC doing the same thing, we urge you to please buy from them instead.
We do not wish to profit from this, so we’re selling these masks at cost. You are paying only for the blank masks and the materials required to print on them, plus the cost of postage.
We’re not a big company with a warehouse full of stock, we’re just a couple of artists with a small printing set up. So, as with everything we sell, each mask will be hand printed to order and it may take a few days to be ready, but we will prioritise these orders and endeavour to get them in the mail to you as soon as possible.
If you’re out there on the streets protesting, we support you, and want you to stay safe. It doesn’t have to be one of our masks, but please do wear a mask.
Thanks for reading. Stay strong.
Rob and Cary.
