The 2 Million Essential Ears
Ear Saver

We worked with biomedical engineers, doctors, and epidemiologists to design a functional, comfortable Ear Saver that can be printed in seconds.

I need Ear Savers.

How do I get them?

 

Are you working on the front lines of the 
COVID-19 crisis?

Our factory, and thousands of Glowforge customers, are working around the clock to print you Ear Savers - for free.

Anyone wearing a mask to keep us all safe can request them. Nurses, retail workers, delivery workers, doctors, sanitation workers - we'll do our best to get them to you as soon as we can.

Designed by experts, printable by everyone.

Masks weren’t designed to be worn all day, every day. 

Ear Savers take pressure and friction off the ears, making all masks more comfortable and reduce the risk of damage to the ears and face.

Prevents injury

With critical shortages of PPE, the right size mask isn’t always available. 

The Ear Saver makes mask sizing more flexible, meaning more people can be protected.

Helps when the mask is the wrong size
