Our Story

New Norm Live, LLC is a company launched by Pam and Mike Erickson, owners of the largest canvas and marine fabrication company in the United States, Canvas Designers®, Inc.  When the shortages and inferior quality of foreign made mask became clear, Pam and Mike realized the need to produce FDA certified quality made medical masks domestically, using all domestically sourced materials. 

Canvas Designers®, Inc., is a 35 year old manufacturing company located in Riviera Beach, FL.

To fill an immediate need, they started out by making cloth masks from materials widely used in the marine industry.  Additionally, they began manufacturing face shields.  Customers and first responders were thrilled that they made these products available.

We have donated hundreds of products to the local school board, law enforcement agencies, hospitals and local nonprofits. When they realized that that medical-grade masks were still such a problem. They decided to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment and supplies to bring this much-needed mask manufacturing back to the United States.

Our original mask and shield products are still available through the Canvas Designers® Store.  Those products are listed below:
