No matter what you're selling, you always want to provide clients with the best products possible. This is especially imperative when it comes to personal protective equipment (PPE) — your clients and their customers simply cannot afford to sell or use sub-par safety products. Not only is this bad for business, but it's bad for public health.
So, how do you know if your PPE is top-notch? Focus on the following factors to tell the difference between a superior product and a lackluster one.
1. Highlight High Quality
Do you know how the specific face mask protection you're selling is made? How about what it's made of? You should, because not all PPE promos are created equal. They can differ in a number of ways, such as how they're produced, the material they're made of, and how durable they are.
Here's an easy way to test the merit of your PPE product: If they're not comfortable or made with high-quality components, they won't be used for long. If your PPE product doesn't stand the test of usage and time, this isn't only bad news for you and your clients, but it also affects the global community at large. PPE is one of the first lines of defense in humanity's battle with the coronavirus pandemic, and sub-par products don't help to reduce the spread of this disease as much as good ones do.
With all this said, don't ever hesitate to be straightforward with your supplier. Ask them up-front about their quality standards and what materials go into their PPE products. Dotted Line Manufacturing is extremely proud of our products and we definitely don't ever mind being transparent about how they're made or what features they have.
We use 100% interlock polyester 4.7 oz fabric in all of our face masks and neck gaiters. This gives our product users increased comfort and breathability. Our face masks come as 2-ply, while our neck gaiters come as 1-ply. If you want 2-ply for the latter, all you have to do is fold your gaiter in half.
We also don't take shortcuts in our manufacturing process. Every single one of our neck gaiters contains a seam from top to bottom to ensure that they're built to last. This emphasis on durability is why our products are trusted by the construction, trucking, and logistics industries.
2. Know Where Your Product Comes From
Shipping delays are an example of one unfortunate consequence of the COVID-19 shutdowns and stay-at-home orders. The more touchpoints you have in a fulfillment process, the more opportunities there are for delays to occur. As a result, many distributors have turned to domestic suppliers so that their products have less distance to travel.
Take the risk of delay out of your PPE order by working with Dotted Line Manufacturing. From yarn sourcing and fabric knitting to cutting, printing, sewing, and packaging, our entire supply chain is based in America. Whether it's neck gaiters or face masks, all of our products are 100% made in the USA. We believe in supporting the US workforce in every single way we can, and we'll continue to do so at every step of our company journey.
3. Offer a Variety of Styles
Every person has their own preference for PPE. Therefore, it's not a one-size-fits-all solution. Some clients prefer certain styles while some industries require particular features that comply with their regulations and needs. Be prepared by making sure you can handle any possible customer that comes your way by partnering with a supplier that offers a wide range of PPE options.
Dotted Line Manufacturing offers a variety of premium neck gaiters and adjustable face masks. We also specialize in the technique of dye sublimation printing and employ the highest print resolution quality for our fabrics. What does this mean, exactly? Basically, we can produce beautiful face masks and neck gaiters that accurately represent a company's brand or user's preference.
When you work with us, there are no unwelcome surprises. The products you receive from us always look exactly how you envisioned them. This is great for COVID-19 safety, as PPE that looks amazing will be worn more frequently. Also, it's worth mentioning that all of our PPE products are zero fade print — this means that you'll always look stylish, no matter how long you use our PPE.
4. Emphasize Innovation
The apparel industry is ever-changing. Years of experience inform our PPE product design, and we are always striving to improve them with the latest features that research has to offer. For instance, all Dotted Line PPE products come with Agion technology, a powerful antimicrobial and antiviral treatment of copper and silver. Originally developed for the medical industry, this special infusion gives you proper protection from 99.9% of viruses and bacteria.
Perhaps even more impressive is that this antimicrobial treatment can withstand more than 100 laundry washes. Other comparable PPE products only last 25 washes. We're not joking when we say that we emphasize durability!
Our PPE products also offer UPF 50 sun protection, the highest sun protection standard for fabric. Simply put, this means that our neck gaiters and face masks block out 98% of UV radiation. Lastly, our PPE products are all made from moisture-wicking fabric. So whether you're working in construction or you're out for a jog, you can stay dry no matter what comes your way.
