Our Story

Welcome to Mej Mej®! We are a family of artists who create new designs every day for children all over the world. You will find personalized prints and canvases, tummy stickers, shower gifts and beautiful fabric decals that are easy to reposition. It’s a shop full of happy!

One of our favorite offerings is our One For Onezee™ program. A soft new organic cotton onezee is given to a baby in need for every one purchased. Because of you, together, we can help the world become a little bit happier, one baby at a time.

MADE IN AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA

All of our products are created from our hilltop studio in the heart of Austin, Texas. We print and die-cut our repositionable fabric decals, making sure colors remain true and accurate. We machine-embroider our soft organic cotton onezees, one at a time, and back the embroidery with a soft lining so that the inside is gentle against a baby’s delicate skin. We ship all of our products using sturdy packaging, so that they arrive in perfect condition.

A little bit about us:

We are the artists of Cathy Heck Studio™. And we are a family. I (Cathy) have been licensing art for children’s products for over 25 years. We love that over 2 million babies own a Cathy Heck baby book … you might even have one in your own keepsake box!

While making all that art, my husband, Jim, and I also raised three daughters. Little did we know we were creating our own work force. Ten years ago, Ellen joined our team, then Julianna, and then Margaret. Each one shares her special style or gift, and we love to collaborate. Often, one will complete the project of another! From two studios, in two cities, in two different time zones, we digitally share ideas and inspiration.

Working in a variety of media from printmaking to painting, drawing to digital design, our family is always coming up with something fresh and new. We are inspired to create something for every kind of nursery whether it’s modern or vintage, classic or boho. Like a gallery, Mej Mej® introduces a new collection on the first Friday of every month, so come visit us often to see what’s new.

Curious about our name? Mej Mej® is an acronym for the three daughters … Margaret, Ellen, and Julianna. So, it really is all in the family, from the artwork to the name. And if you are wondering how to pronounce our name, it depends on where you are in the world. But if you are here in the USA, you might want to pronounce it the way we do: Mej Mej® with a soft “J” sound … as in treasures … like the babies and children for whom we make our designs.

We are most inspired by you. Write us! Your plans and dreams inspire us to make beautiful artwork to surround the babies and children you love.
