Let's Talk Competion in This Market
is a cosmic art form, inspired by
the glory of the night sky in the Arizona mountains.
Beginning with the
experimentation of simple luminescent paint in the early '60's, then
combined with the knowledge of magical illusions, Mr. Petrashek
created the first STARSCAPES® ceiling mural in 1979.
Perfected with numerous professional commissions, Voyager Industries
was established as the publisher/distributor of the STARSCAPES® brand
StarBiz Specialty Artist Educational Program.
In every entrepreneurial magazine on the planet, we were the very
first company to list their URL in an advertisement. That just
means we were on the "cutting edge" in business. And we're
always on the edge, "pushing the envelope", always first. We've
been on the web since 1994.
Not happy with common paint
standards for our purpose, and knowing that some suppliers are
remaining silent about being entangled in lawsuits for patent
infringement on pigments, we began creating our own exclusive...
Creation Paint™, specifically for our purpose. And, we're
proud to say that it's not available anywhere else. Beware of
Competition in the marketplace is really a good
thing as it increases awareness of the viability of a product.
Good competitors will have an advertising budget and advertise their
product to the public, like we of course do. And that's
awesome. However some competitors are just parasitic and do no
advertising and business creation on their own, and just hope to con
others into thinking they've got the same thing to sell. Same
rhetoric, same look to the site, etc.; but the substance that a
buyer receives simply won't be there.
Beware of imitators out there claiming better paint or a better
program than ours. One competitor has a demo portal poster that
is jut nine 8.5x11" sheets of card-stock paper, just so they can say
that our poster paper is "paper thin" and theirs isn't.
The truth is that it doesn't matter how thick the paper is, as long
as it does the job. What he doesn't tell you is that he gives
you 9 pieces of paper that you lay on the bed and show your
customer. Heh. Well how can you effectively demonstrate a ceiling
mural that way to a prospective purchaser and expect
to get a job? If you combined them somehow into a square,
theirs is only half the size of ours anyway. There's isn't astronomically
correct and doesn't show any constellations. There's not even any 3D
realism or depth perception to it. We wouldn't show it to an
astronomer, that's for sure.
care enough for you to include an audio CD that tells your customer
all about the cosmic mural and leads them artfully into becoming a
buyer. That's part of what you get when you do business with
us. After 25 years of perfecting the installation and
salesmanship of STARSCAPES, no one else can be expected to even come
close. Only we can teach you our time tested methods correctly.
One guy tells people that
our paint doesn't glow as well, but they fail to tell you that
they are intentionally misleading the public by (1.) not energizing our paint
properly and comparing it to their fully energized
paint; and (2.) comparing the glow time of our short glow SUPER-3
Creation Paint™ children's room paint to their extended glow paint. Obviously,
that's not fair at all, in fact it's a bold lie. We've heard
of another character that mixes the truth with lies. Hello!
As you know we offer
two types of paint, one for children where the stars dim in half an
hour so they don't stay up too long, and the adult/commercial
SUPER-10 Creation Paint™ that glows through the night.
And of course,
none have our Galactification Machine or the patent pending tools
that we personally manufacture. One of the
reasons that STARSCAPES Artist-Illusionists are able to get the high
prices that we get for our work is that there is tremendous value in
giving your client a mural that is astronomically correct.
Don't be fooled by phony imitators practicing "false witness"
and with their cheap imitations. There's a "special" place
We're happy to give you the links to their websites
so that you can do an investigation on your own. Take heed...
as they generally like to undercut our price by a few hundred
dollars because they literally lack the substance and quality in
their own program to be able to get their own customers, and hope
that you'll be "hoodwinked, hogtied and swindled" by their false
promises and attracted to their "better deal price". They know
that in today's market, it's just natural that people will do their
own due diligence and check out the marketplace. That's the
way parasites live -- off their host.
We're the one that advertises world wide and have
continued to create the market for bedroom stargazing. We take
credit for the hundreds of thousands of people worldwide that are
now doing just that.
You'll find that one has categorically copied even
the look of our website, right down to close images and buttons and
text. Be sure to understand what they're offering... exactly.
You'll find that they don't even come close. Here's another
thing; I'd be scared to have him put up a free (albeit childish)
webpage for me when it looks like he has blatantly copied the famous
artist Thomas Kincaid's trademark.
Heh. One even touts a testimonial from a customer
that says he's tried others product (meaning STARSCAPES) and he
never made any money with it. Well that's funny because that
same customer was a licensed STARSCAPES Artist-Illusionist with us
years ago and we have three testimonials from him stating that he
was so busy with his STARSCAPES business that he had to quit his
other job. His name is Norman.
While some may think they can learn this on their own in a few
months of trial and error, or buy an unworthy and ordinary
instruction pamphlet and DVD; they may learn to create a star mural,
but they'll never
learn the art and business that is my STARSCAPES® business. You get what
you pay for. Why put yourself through the trouble?
