It all started in 2017 when our founder, Tyler White, started Stay Anchored Apparel. White was a senior in high school at the time and had quite a large following on social media. With a combined following of over 250,000 people, White knew he needed to use his platform for good. After much thought and prayer, White felt inspired to start a faith-based clothing line to inspire people to “Stay Anchored” in their faith. The brand and message grew like crazy! Several stores began carrying the brand and online orders came in across the globe. As the brand grew, White had to figure out how to keep the quality high and the costs low. After much research, he bought a screen printing press and set up shop in his youth minister’s garage. After a year of trial and error trying to figure out what chemicals, inks, and adjustments to make to the press, White was finally ready to start printing. After a few months of printing his brands shirts, his friends began to ask if he could print custom shirts for them. From this point forward, the rest is history!
After a few custom shirt orders for friends, word of mouth worked its magic, and orders were lining up. In order to differentiate the clothing brand from the custom offering, White came up with TeeWhites, DBA. (TeeWhites is a play on words for Tyler White & tee shirt.) As the growth continued and time went on, White moved out of his youth minister’s garage and set up shop in a metal building he built on his parents land.
At this point things began to grow; however, it wasn’t without many obstacles. White set up the new shop during his summer break and then headed back to Ole Miss for his senior year of college. When White returned to Oxford he was the only person who knew how to use all of the equipment – the equipment that was 2.5 hours away in Flora, MS. Thanks to modern technology, White hired and trained workers with the help of FaceTime and surveillance cameras in the shop. In the early days, there were many mess-ups and hundreds of blank shirts had to be reordered several times. Even in the early days, White refused to send an order out the door unless they were perfect. It was a slow process; however, eventually all of the workers were trained up, and the growth continued.
In just over a year, TeeWhites outgrew the metal building on his parent’s land. At this point, White knew it was time to move into town. In early 2022, TeeWhites moved into a building just off of Main Street in Flora, MS. The new shop features a retail storefront that continues to sell Stay Anchored Apparel shirts and is home to the Tri-County Academy Booster Club Store. TeeWhites is now a team over ten people and continues to experience record growth.
