Just Be is a state of mind…a way of life…a philosophy. It’s a new line of graphic tees not meant to inspire…but to Just Be. The tees allow people to express how they feel or how they would like to feel. Just Be is built around an online community/blog for people to share how they Just Be. Each shirt has it’s own Just Be saying–be fabulous, be crazy, be flirty, be sweet, be cool, be groovy, be punk, be spoiled, be unique, etc.
What sets Just Be apparel and accessories apart from other gear is that it is built around an online community for people to share how they Just Be. MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are used, along with a customized website and blog at jb-justbe.com. People can share and show how they Just Be by uploading photos and videos to the blog and the other social networking sites.

Just Be also has organic shirts that are printed with water-based inks which make them great for the environment. They are also extremely durable and will hold up wash after wash after wash. The shirts are made of the softest combed, ring-spun 100% certified organic cotton.
And my favorite items are the baby onesies which are made of super soft 5 oz. 100% combed ringspun cotton jersey with a reinforced three-snap closure. All the sayings on these are adorable and oh so true for your baby.
News about the company:
A brand new New Hampshire business has been recognized by two national magazines as an “Inspired Innovation.” Inc. and Fast Company, both national magazines, awarded $5,000 to Just Be Products LLC, a local apparel company owned by Michelle Pratt-Lienhart, to help develop their innovative line of t-shirts. The company is featured in a full-page editorial in the current issues of both magazines. The editorial is also on the companies’ websites at www.inc.com/greatidea and www.fastcompany.com/greatidea.
Just Be, according to Pratt-Lienhart, is a state of mind, way of life, and a philosophy. Just Be is an online community for people to share how to Just Be. Websites like Myspace, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are used, along with a customized website, blog and online store at www.jb-justbe.com. People will be able to share and show how they Just Be by uploading photos and videos to the blog and the other social networking sites.
And, to spread the word, Just Be has developed a new line of graphic tees not meant to inspire…
but to Just Be. By wearing the tees, people express how they feel or how they would like to feel.
Each Just Be item has its own Just Be saying—be beautiful, be organic, be flirty, be sweet, be
cool, be green, be punk, be a sk8r, be natural, etc.
The winnings from the magazines were invested in a direct-to-garment t-shirt printer. “Having
the printer in-house allows me to quickly fulfill Internet orders,” Pratt-Lienhart said. “I can also
control the quality of all the products that are produced.” She has plans to expand the product
line beyond t-shirts to also include other apparel and accessories.
Just Be was selected to participate in “Back to School Celebrity Kids Gift Bags”, which included
some of the most hip, useful and fun back to school items. These gift bags went to some of the
hottest celebrities’ kids, such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Faith Hill, Will
Smith, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mark Wahlberg, Gweneth Paltrow, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck,
and David and Victoria Beckham.
Just Be is a great company and they have great products. The shirt I was sent to review was the organic Just Be Organic tee and I love it. The fit is perfect and it is a very soft shirt.
