About Cathy's Studio
What is Mej Mej ?Mej Mej is a subsidiary of Cathy Heck Studio. While Cathy Heck Studio has been creating designs and new products for over 25 years, we have recently received so many email requests from fans who are looking for nursery art to coordinate with their Cathy Heck products that we decided to create a new website where parents can create the perfect illustrated nursery. At the Mej Mej website, you can customize your child’s nursery, bedroom or playroom with choices from hundreds of adorable designs and several licensed collections. Have fun!
Do you take on custom work?While we do not take commissions from individuals, Cathy Heck Studio is constantly coming up with new ideas and responding to the needs and requests of our clients. Please, visit our blog and we will enjoy hearing about which of the Mej Mej collections you like best. If you see something in the Mej Mej shop that you might like in a different size or format than we offer, please email us.
How often do you have new designs available on your website?At Mej Mej, we are always coming up with new designs and Cathy Heck Studio is always making new art. Like many art galleries, we like to introduce new collections on the first Friday of the month. Visit us each month to see new developments in the studio. If you would like to receive a sneak peek, please subscribe to our newsletter...we won't flood you with a million emails and you may unsubscribe at any time.
About Our Products
How accurate is the color representation online?We have tried our best to accurately display the color of our products online, but all monitors portray color differently. Because of this we cannot guarantee that the products you order will be an exact color representation from the image you see on our site. If you would like to receive color samples of the collections, you may order swatch samples from the Swatch Shop.
Are Mej Mej products made in the US?Yes, our fabric wall decals are printed one at a time and die-cut right here in our Austin, Texas studio. Our canvases are also individually printed and stretched by hand in our Austin studio, and our One-For-Onezees and hemstitched pillows are machine embroidered from our original designs one at a time from our Austin studio.
Will Mej Mej paper prints fade?All artwork is printed on 100% cotton acid-free velvet fine art paper using high-quality archival ultrachrome inks designed to be colorfast for over 80 years. The artwork is also coated with a UV protectant to provide additional protection from fading. We recommend that you do not hang your prints in direct sunlight and that you choose a UV protective glass or plexiglass when you frame your print.
Will Mej Mej canvas nursery art fade?It really depends on the amount of light that directly hits the artwork where it is displayed. We do not recommend that you hang our artwork in direct sunlight. We only use archival ultrachrome inks, which are scratch resistant and are designed to be colorfast for over 80 years. We also hand-coat our canvases with an ultraviolet (UV) protective coating, which gives each canvas an even satin finish and insures that the color clarity is protected for many years.
Does Mej Mej wall art need to be framed?Not at all! (We know you are busy with more important things) All of our Canvas Wall Art is giclée printed on high-quality canvas and wrapped all the way around the gallery profile 1 -inch wooden stretcher bars. The canvas is not only beautiful from the front, but also from all four sides!
Is Cathy’s nursery art safe to hang in a baby’s room?Yes. Our products are designed to decorate both children's rooms and nurseries. However, our products are not meant to be toys, and we recommend that you hang them in such a way that your baby will not be able to pull them down. It is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics that you remove any decorations that a baby can reach by the time your baby can get up on its hands and knees. We recommend hanging your artwork out of reach from day one.
