The prints and letterpress products that came from that lightbulb have been a hit ever since.

    Megan Lee Designs are original and hand-drawn with a sketchy nuanced quality to them. We think things are more fun this way. In 2003, Megan began creating designs that tickled her fancy and made her smile. She took a screen-printing class and fell in love with printing her illustrations on clothing. Erik (husband) helped her lug stuff to craft shows, organize the early orders, and eventually got promoted to VP of running stuff. You can find their t-shirts, baby goods, scarves, and more in our shop!
