What’s the story behind your brand?
You9ted was birthed out of necessity. As a company led by a Black Christian couple, we have experienced judgement from Black Culture as well as "Church Hurt." We understand the struggle first-hand. Our past experiences fuels our passion for being a safe space for others struggling to cope with all the negativity that comes with being a Christian in 2022. Our apparel is our connection point, but our mission is to heal the broken places that interferes with our allies ability to show up Christian, Black and proud about it.
What are your brand values?
Have you ever heard the phrase, "it's not what you say, but how you say it"? It can't be stressed enough that we are not pointing the finger and judging others with ill-intentions or a misguided heart posture. We are committed to our strategy of love when interacting with every ally, and we encourage you to do the same.
We CHOOSE joy! That doesn't mean we're all smiles, all the time! Joy is boundless, life-changing, transformation to your character. It's representative of what resides in the core of your being. Smiles and laughter may be how it's displayed at times, but know that you can't a smile to imitate what's not in existence within.

If there’s ever a problem, we will do everything in our power to protect your peace by providing you with exceptional customer service.
“Why y'all so mean?” You9ted understands the reputation that Christians have shaped for themselves over the years. It’s not good, we know. That’s why our goal is use a sweet potato pie approach to help the world understand, how we make you feel is important to us. This means that we will value your opinion, empathize with how you feel, and communicate with you out of love.
It's important for us to remain morally good to everyone we interact with. Our commitment to you is that as God continues to elevate You9ted, we are dedicated to continue to demonstrate His goodness in everything we touch.
