"theukayqueen was born in the living room of Jaree’s home and was, at the time, just a screen printing hobby. As the orders increased she wanted to branch out into items other than t-shirts and quickly realized that she not only loved finding new, trendy apparel but also that most clothing items were only available in sizes Small-Large when shopping with manufacturers. When “plus” sizes were available, they were almost twice as expensive, and frankly not very flattering on the average curvy woman. And so, the personal mission of Jaree was created to find items that were beautiful, size inclusive and affordable. After years of negotiating and building relationships, we, as well as our industry, now carry clothing sizes 4-26.
While Tee For The Soul is a local, family business - our family isn’t limited to relatives. Our customers have become some of our closest friends. We receive messages, emails, and letters daily from customers that say they’ve found their personal style and confidence by shopping our website and talking with our community of sisters. We’ve been proud to provide a place to build relationships with bold, loving and uplifting women. We know the strongest women, are those that lift each other up. That’s why at theukayqueen, YOU are the model."
If you stumble upon our Facebook bio, you'll get this small snippet of what theukayqueen started as. I love that it gives new and existing customers a little bit of a sneak peek into our background. You're going to learn that what goes around comes around and we're blaming it all on our roots today...Thanks, Garth.
Yes, theukayqueen started as a screen printing company and we're right back where we started today! These are our screen printing extraordinaire, Jesse and Jacob! Working in a building full of women, you'd think they would hide out in the screen printing room and never say a word but they really are fun to be around and they handle all the estrogen so well! It really is like a big family! Ellie is our screen printing artist! Jesse and Jacob do the printing but Ellie does the brainstorming and designing for all the graphic tees we have! We're a growing company so none of this comes without growing pains but this team is handling it so well while making sure our customers and Sisters are happy!
All the fabulous graphic tees you see here are made across the screen from our Edmond storefront location! I am going to share my favorite ways to wear these 3 tees below!
