Why did the company's name change from Back Yard Baby to Lettees?
We grew! Back Yard Baby® officially launched in 2009 and specialiized soley in children's personalized tees for newborns through size 12. Over the last 5 years we have added personalized products for all ages, personalized home goods, and our unique line of recycled tee accessories. Until now our new items were only available to order through our in person Tee Parties or by contacting us directly. We have been working long and hard to create this new online boutique to make shopping a fun and easy experience for you! We loved our name Back Yard Baby® but felt it did not represent our total package anymore. The name Lettees™ was inspired by the last 4 letters in the name of owner and designer, Winslett, and the "tee" shirt foundation of our company. Welcome to Lettees™!
Why do your Recycled Tee Items sell out so quickly?
We design and create by hand all of our peices right here in our Savannah, Ga studio! Many of our items are one of a kind and most are only available in small quantities. We are designers who enjoy the creative process and the continual challenge of creating beautiful and unique peices for you!
How are your items printed?
Depending on the project we print digitally or screen print.
How do you care for your items?
For longest lasting quality we suggest washing our cotton items inside out in cold water. Do not use bleach or bleach additive detergent. Remove from wash immediately when finished. Tumble dry slightly and hang out in the sunshine to warm. Wear or use often and ENJOY!
To care for our burlap items, spot clean or dry clean only.
Lettees Recycled Tee accessories are all handmade and may feature hand dyed fabric, leathers, and natural stones which means that each piece can vary slightly. Due to the nature of the jewelry, exposure to water, perfume, hairspray, lotion and other similar elements is not recommended and can change the appearance. Jewelry should not be worn in the shower, the pool or to the gym.
Tip: Stretchy bracelets should be ROLLED over your hand when putting them on, instead of stretching or pulling at the elastic cord.
