What is the difference between N95 masks and KN95 masks?
Face masks are often regulated according to the country of origin to determine the standards of the face mask. For example, N95 is a standard of face mask regulated by the United States (US) KN95 is a standard of face mask regulated by China. The number 95 represents the filter performance. In this case, both N95 and KN95 masks have a filter performance of more or equal to 95%.
Is it safe for me to import products from China?
Yes. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the risk of an infected person contaminating commercial goods and packages is low. Viruses can survive on surfaces for hours or days. This is why our Ethical Standards team audit our supplier factories so that they comply with the employee health and safety standards. Please visit the WHO official site for more credible information on infectious diseases.
Can I customize the packaging of these products to suit my brand?
Yes. In ODM, we specialize in personalizing our promotional goods for your brand. However, the specifics of the designs and templates differ according to the product. This can come in the form of custom paper box packaging, custom printed labels/stickers, silkscreen printed casings, etc. Since the design is a relatively subjective matter, we advise that our customers speak with our salespersons so that we can provide you with clear details.
What is the estimated delivery time for these products?
Do expect a longer lead time or slight delays for delivery. With many commercial flights suspended during this pandemic, air freight capacity has dropped greatly. Cargo planes schedules will be packed during this period as well. Airfreight rates have increased greatly as well. Shipping is a more viable option if you are looking for more affordable transportation, but arrival will be later. To learn more: See this blog, https://www.theodmgroup.com/air-freight-china/
