- About Lettees
More than 20 years ago while studying art at the University of Alabama, I started designing & selling colorful tee shirts that celebrated parties & life for friends, college students, & locals. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the U of A, earning a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Savannah College of Art & Design, working jobs in advertising, book design & packaging, & as a professor of graphic design at SCAD (not to mention hostess, waitress, swimming lesson instructor, nanny, & freelancer), I eventually found my way back to my roots as a tee shirt designer.
What started as a childrens' personalized tee shirt company in a small closet office of my home in 2009, Lettees has grown to now include personalize home goods & recycled tee accessories. In 2015 we made the leap into our dreamy showroom & studio in downtown Savannah, Georgia. Lettees is still a very small company. There are only 3 of us! We also work on occasion with amazingly talented interns & contractors.
All of our originally designed personalized items are made to order. We print each & every item in the studio one at a time with much love & attention to detail. We hand make our line of recycled tee jewelry & accessories by naturally dying & cutting our surplus tee shirt products & turning them into beads, tassels, cording, wraps, etc. which we then incorporate into our unique pieces.
Now as a wife & mother of 2 boys, many things have changed since college, but that original concept of capturing the spirit of time for individuals through our designs & colorful products remains at the core & the success of Lettees. Thank you for letting my creative team & me do what truly makes us happy...create! Most of all, our hope is that our products create happiness in YOU!
