The Birth of Tee See Tee

Founded with a passion for design and a commitment to quality, Tee See Tee emerged as a labor of love from Beau Warren. With a film degree from U of M and later a graphic design degree, he eventually fell in love with screen printing. After landing in Traverse City (via Chicago), Beau and his wife eventually started their own business designing fun apparel that puts a smile on your face, breaks the ice with passerbys, and most importantly, ties in with memories you have of your hometown. Their tag line is Wear Original

Local Roots, Global Appeal

Tee See Tee has found a way to seamlessly blend local charm with global appeal. The company’s designs, ranging from iconic Michigan symbols to clever wordplays, resonate not only with Michiganders but with anyone who appreciates authentic, locally crafted apparel. The brand has become a testament to the idea that quality and craftsmanship know no boundaries.

Unique Designs that Tell a Story

What sets Tee See Tee apart is its commitment to storytelling through design. Each t-shirt is a canvas that tells a unique Michigan story, whether it’s the depiction of the Mackinac Bridge, a homage to the Great Lakes, or a play on words that captures the state’s quirky sense of humor. By infusing their designs with elements that Michiganders hold dear, Tee See Tee creates a connection between the wearer and their love of the Mitten.

Quality Craftsmanship

Beyond its captivating designs, Tee See Tee places a strong emphasis on the craftsmanship of its products. Every t-shirt is made with meticulous attention to detail, using high-quality materials that ensure both comfort and durability. This commitment to excellence has earned Tee See Tee a loyal customer base who not only appreciates the aesthetic appeal of the shirts but also values the long-lasting quality that comes with each purchase.
