Who is UM? Our Story

What began as a spin-off of our first brand, United Tees, United Monograms was founded on the principles of personalized, preppy, and patriotic clothing. In 2014, we started selling monogrammed items using a single at-home embroidery machine in our basement in Pennsylvania. After committing fully to the brand, we moved to Charleston, SC, which we saw as the home of the monogram. We began operations in a trailer as our first office and hired our first employee. The brand quickly grew with the help of social media, hard work, and the creation of our viral 'graphic monograms.' Today, we continue to strive for greatness, bringing personalized and preppy style to our community every day. We truly feel as though our UM shoppers are family, and hope our clothing brings them happiness, confidence, and comfort.
