The Standard and Deluxe editions of The Writer's Glove® both appear visually identical, which leads some customers to wonder which edition they received. Here's how.
The quickest way to tell is on the outside of the box the gloves arrive in. The size will always be marked. If the Deluxe circle is marked, it's Deluxe. If it's not, it's Standard.
As for the gloves themselves, both Deluxe and Standard editions look the same to the eye. There aren't additional markings, patterns or material on the Deluxe denoting the touchscreen-compatible index fingertips and light grip on the palms/fingers. Both editions look like this:
However, there are two ways to make sure those Deluxe gloves are actually a Deluxe.
The first is to test the index fingertips on a touchscreen device. The tech that makes this possible is embedded right into the glove material, so this is the only way to confirm it's present.
Similarly, the light grip is worked right into the material. To test it, hold both palms of the gloves together and gently move them up and down. The gloves will stick together.
In the future, these features may be highlighted with other colors or design elements. For now, though, these are the best ways to note their presence.
