Some More Help for Sizing

It’s become clear I need to do a better job of describing the sizing information for The Writer’s Glove. It’s nothing personal, but I keep getting severed hands in the mail for size quote requests. This tends to stain my various magazine subscriptions, and I’m just not myself without the latest edition of Glove Entrepreneur Weekly.

In all seriousness, getting the size right when you’re shopping online can be tricky, so I came up with a visual aid:

Measure the length of that yellow line (on your hand, not the screen, of course). That measurement corresponds to the following sizes:

  • Extra Small: 7 to 8 inches (17.8 cm to 20.3 cm)
  • Small: 8 to 9 inches (20.3 cm to 22.9 cm)
  • Medium: 9 to 10 inches (22.9 cm to 25.4 cm)
  • Large: 10 to 11 inches (25.4 cm to 27.9 cm)

If you have questions about sizing, you can always contact me here.

And if you’re ready to make that purchase, I’ll give you free shipping and the best price on the ‘net here.

The Writer’s Glove: Now with PayPal Verification!

This may rank as the least interesting news you’ll hear all day, but it’s pretty important to me. You’ll notice this symbol across TheWritersGlove.com:

Official PayPal Seal

That badge is from PayPal itself, and it’s given to businesses that formally verify their identities. This is important for two reasons.

First, it lets you know I am who I say I am. And who I am is Ben Sobieck, the founding member and president of The Writer’s Glove, LLC. The LLC filed for its certificate of organization in Minnesota. No surprises there, but that’s the point.

Second, it means that when you purchase a set of writing gloves to keep your hands warm while you type, you can do so with confidence. You’ll get what you paid for.

Truth be told, I’ve been verified via PayPal for some time, but I only now realized this badge was available. It may seem like a simple thing, but to me it’s validation that I’m running things they way they ought to be. That’s a big deal for someone chasing a piece of the American Dream.

Thanks to everyone who helped me get to this point!

Pics: Customers Wearing The Writer’s Glove

Since I can’t slip a pair of The Writer’s Glove onto your hands in-person via the magic of the Internet (someone get on that), I figured to share with you some pics of customers wearing these gloves. You’ll notice right away what makes The Writer’s Glove different from fingerless gloves that also try to keep your hands warm while you type on a keyboard. It’s not fingerless!

Check ’em out:

Writing gloves for keyboards
The silk material conforms to your hand to make it easier to “feel” the keys on the keyboard as you type.

Don’t forget that the index fingers are touchscreen compatible, so you can work a smartphone without removing the gloves.

The palm and fingers of the gloves are coated with a light grip. Don’t worry, it’s not tacky. It’s designed to keep the gloves from slipping on keys and other objects.

And don’t forget about this terrific video from a customer who filmed herself typing with the gloves on:

If you’d like to try The Writer’s Glove for yourself, I’d be happy to send a pair out to you. I never charge shipping when you order from me directly.
