So, why are we designing greek tees? This has been a discussion since our last Trunk Show at Rodeo last Fall. We kept having girls tell us how bad they wanted a Mr P's version of their sorority tees. I think they were tired of the same thing. So, fast forward 9 months later... We worked all summer long and early fall getting designs together and getting our licenses. Never dreamed it would be such a process! Lots of research went into designing these tees. From understanding the different symbols, to talking to girls in different sororities to find out their likes and dislikes....then, getting approval from nationals on the designs.
Our plan was to create a design for each of the sororities at ULM and at Louisiana Tech, and then expand if the demand was there. Since we are known for our designs being hand drawn original creations, I wanted to do something more than just their Greek Letters. Anyone can do that!! :). So, here goes.....Introducing the Sigma Kappa Heart Baseball Tee....

We have these tees available online at www.mrpstees.com or at Rodeo Boutique in Ruston, LA
I just got the word this week that we got licenses accepted for Chi Omega and Tri Delta. I have been working on sketches for those two sororities.

Are you wishing we were designing your sorority a tee?? Let us know!! We appreciate all feedback and ideas. I have quite a few girls ask us down in Lafayette about a design for Alpha Delta Pi..so, I am in the process of applying for a license for them too.
On a side note, back in April, I was called and asked by Erica Moser Ryan to create a design for her sorority sister Georgia Boswell. Georgia and Erica were both KD's with my best friend Rachel and roommate Kelly (and a ton of other KD's who I adore~ Kristen, Jennifer, Meg, Meredith, Sarah, Julie, Carey, Missy, Kelsey, Marie, Beka, Rebecca, Lindsey, Lauren and on and on). Georgia had sadly lost her son Drew when he was young and had created an amazing non profit called Drew's Tunes. Drew's Tunes mission is to provide musical instruments to children and support Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood research. I did a lot of texting back and forth with Katie Flurry about the design, and came us with this....The four stars represent Georgia and her family.
You guys ought to know by now that I love drawing alligators!! We donated this drawing to Drew's Tunes and they came up with the cutest layout for it.

I remember Corre Stegall always talking to us about the "Tech Family" and I truly buy into this. I have experienced it and am so thankful for the friends I made during my college days there. No, I wasn't a KD, but I am a mother of young children and a Bulldawg and I'm happy to help support this great organization that gives back to young people. To order one, go to www.drewstunes.org.
