Artist Debbie Mumm has signed a licensing agreement with Don Mechanic Enterprises, a Texas-based corporation specializing in giftware and decorative products. 

"We are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with this prolific company," says Debbie Mumm. "The product categories that Don requested really fill a niche for us and our artwork is a perfect fit for Don Mechanic." 

Don Mechanic Enterprises will develop products including birdhouses, yard stakes, wall hooks, photo frames, garden tools, canvas paintings, shadow boxes, candle holders, resin frogs and butterflies, resin figurines, and wall décor using Debbie Mumm® artwork. Products will be sold primarily in gift and department stores, Hallmark shops, drug stores, grocery stores, specialty retailers, and catalogs. 

"We've had great success with our initial launch of Mumm products and are currently working on development of a wide range of gift and decorating items for 2006," Don Mechanic stated. "Debbie's artwork is a great match with the interests of our customer base." 

Based in Dallas, Texas, Don Mechanic Enterprises has showrooms in Atlanta and Dallas to showcase nearly 10,000 products. Don Mechanic launched his Debbie Mumm® line with a series of products featuring Debbie Mumm® roosters. The company is currently working on Fall, Halloween, and Christmas 2006 designs which will launch in January 2007.
