From class project, to real business!

My name is Emma, and this business was my idea that started as a mini-project for a Young Entrepreneur class I took last year in 5th grade. Each student had to think of a product to sell, create a prototype, name our business, design a logo, and draft a business plan. I chose face covers for kids, because I had already started to learn to make them from my mom and grandma.

Through the help of my parents and my grandma, I turned my class project into a real business. I know that face masks and covers are available from many places now, and they probably won't always be needed. (I can't wait for the day when we don’t need to wear anything on our faces at all.) But for now, I'm using this as a way to learn everything I can about how to start, run, and be responsible for a business.

Thank you for stopping by my shop, and for reading about why I created KidCover. Hopefully you can find a face cover color or pattern (or 2 or 3) that you or your kids like. Once you receive your KidCover, please come back to our Etsy shop and leave a quick review. Or tag us (@kidcoverco) in a photo on Instagram or Twitter.

Thank you so much for your support!
—Emma

Frequently asked questions
What size should I order?

We recognize that every human is unique, and one kid at a certain age will have a different size and shape of face than another kid at the same age. That said, our SMALL size is typically for kids ages 3 to 6 years old. The MEDIUM size typically fits kids 7 to 12 years old. And our LARGE size typically fits teens who are 13 to 16 years old. The LARGE size has also been fitting most adults, who are also among our happy customers so far. We’re just not guaranteeing a fit for all adults.

What are the dimensions of each size?

All KidCovers are cut and sewn by hand, so the following dimensions are approximate, and will vary a bit for each mask. Some variances in measurement and shape should be expected. Dimensions are measured from fabric seam to seam, and do not include the elastic that goes over the ears.

SMALL — ~7½" wide by ~4" tall
MEDIUM — ~8¼" wide by ~4½" tall
LARGE — ~9" wide by ~5⅛" tall

How fast is your turnaround time?

For a small quantity of face covers that we maintain in specific fabrics and sizes, we can typically ship those out within 1-2 days. For all other face covers that we must cut and sew by hand, it may take us up to 3-5 days to catch up on existing orders and get them shipped out. Delivery time then depends on the mailing/shipping method.

What kind of fabric do you use?

The majority of our pattern, and plaid fabric is 100% cotton, which we've found to be very breathable and comfortable. The exception is for any face covers in the School-specific category, which are made from recycled uniform fabric, and is typically polyester or a cotton/poly blend.

How protective are these face covers?

KidCover offers no guarantees and makes no promises or warranties on any kind of protection. KidCover makes simple dual-layer cloth face coverings, NOT medical-grade Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). KidCovers are sewn with a double-layer of fabric, but with NO filter. There is NO pocket to manually add your own filter either.

Whose idea was this?

My name is Emma, and this business was my idea that started as a mini-project for a Young Entrepreneur class I took last year in 5th grade. Through the help of my parents and my grandma, I have turned my class project into a real business. I know that face covers are available from many places now, and that they probably won't always be necessary. (I can’t wait for the day when we're completely past all of this craziness.) But for now, I’m using this as an opportunity to learn everything I can about how to start, run, maintain, and be responsible for a business.

Who owns the business?

KidCover is a division of Greater Ink, LLC, which is operated by my parents. They are technically the adult owners of KidCover, and they help oversee all the operations and making our face covers. I (Emma) am the face of the business (literally, for many of the photos), and I give lots of input into the fabrics we choose, do the cutting, sewing, counting inventory, and many details of the business. And I get to share in the proceeds of the business, and help decide where some of those proceeds are donated. I’m learning as much as I can, from successes and mistakes, so that one day, I can start a business of my own.
