Face Mask Manufacturing Los Angeles

Made at a screen printing facility in downtown Los Angeles.

Level Press has been called upon by the mayors office in Los Angeles to activate the factory for cloth face covering production. They are 100% committed to winning the war against Covid-19 and earlier this month they had dedicated 100% of their available resources to cutting and sewing face masks from up-cycled brand new tee shirts at the factory.

There are hospitals being erected in community centers and auditoriums. Nurses and doctors are being called out of retirement to assist. Society has shut down and we are all doing our part to fight by maintaining proper social distancing. Desperate times call for desperate measures. 

The efforts to produce cloth face masks and uniforms for the front lines are essential to aid the fight. The Let's Print Los Angeles t-shirt factory is turned into a mask making factory
