Suprise! Made in the USA custom screen protectors!

December 28, 2020 | By Don Basch

Our Traverse City, Michigan-based business makes custom screen protectors by importing several kinds of screen protector and privacy filter material and then cutting, packaging, and branding it.  We are capable of filling large, multi-piece industrial orders and we are the best in the business when it comes to providing high-quality, reasonably priced solutions for our business to business partners. Check out what others have to say about us.

We specialize in custom screen protector services and custom kits plus we are able to supply unique shapes and sizes to meet our customers' display protection needs. With very low minimum order quantities, we will make generic labeled screen protectors and kits which our customers can sell directly to their customer base.

Some of our business clients will add screen protectors or privacy filters to their already top-selling products alone or in a kit form.  Kits can include color printed or etched superior-quality promotional microfiber cloths, which can then be placed in a company's device packaging, thus adding value to their end customer.

There are approximately 42 louvers in the 12-pt. letter “a” shown below. This makes for about 715 of these louvers per inch (25.4mm) and equates to thousands of mini-louvers per typical screen. The thickness of a dollar bill (.0043”) is approximately the same thickness as 2 louvers in the images below.

December 19, 2013 | By Don Basch

When relative humidity falls below 30%, static electricity can be problematic. Relative humidity is the percentage of moisture held in the air versus the most that could be held at that temperature.

The installation of a screen protective film takes time, patience, a clean screen and a clean environment.

The rubber silicon adhesion of the screen protector gives a tight, seamless appearance when applied properly. However, if
