I just did four ceilings this last weekend. The local hospice ordered a wall mural and I made $1,886 on that! I did one house with two full ceilings and another job was an upsell to a whole ceiling after they won a three foot in diameter Stargazing Skylite. Then, I had someone call me from my vehicle advertising and they bought a whole ceiling, plus I just got off the phone with a guy that wants his 15 x 15' ceiling done. I love this business! Matt Barklage S.A.I.
Beautiful!! Thank you so much for the joy and optimism you have brought back to us. I will forever be grateful!!! Joe, my 10 year old grandson, Anthony, was so impressed that he got choked up with happiness! To my family at STARSCAPES® and to the future success of STARSCAPES F/X® of the Delaware Valley... a gracious toast... salute! Michael Berenato S.A.I.
Hi, Joe! I just received my StarBiz package and I could not be happier or more impressed. I am, for probably the first time in my life, not only reading but also FOLLOWING written instructions. LOL! Anyway, the quality of what I have see so far; I am just beyond impressed. You have really got this down to a science. Thank you again so very much. I just can't wait to get started and start marketing this." Michael Eckhart
I'm currently doing 60 TraveLodge rooms (just above the beds) and buying a new car with my profits! Mark Garkow S.A.I.
We received a STARSCAPES® Heavenly Ceilings as a gift for my newborn daughter from my mom. Joe was so friendly and easy to work with! He showed us this amazing art work and we loved it! We had it done in both my daughter's room and our own. Sleeping under the stars is going to be so romantic for my husband and I! Christine Sherk
10/10! Incredible service, nice down to earth artist and we are loving our full ceiling STARSCAPES® every night! We have the full ceiling done, and it's like we notice something new each night we gaze up at our stars! My husband and I used to stare at our phones until we fell asleep, but now we doze off while star gazing. Starscapes has become a new must have for us, anywhere we move, we will be giving him a call, and you should too!!!! Brianna Scavo
After just hearing about this, I was a little skeptical. I thought to myself oh its going to look tacky and is it worth it. Just seeing the sample in front of my eyes was enough to make me do a complete 180 and I was amazed. If you remember from Interstellar when they were flying into the wormhole, that’s what looking at just the sample was like. After seeing that I had to do my entire ceiling and I could not be more happy. 10/10 would recommend to anyone and everyone. Lucas Tisland
It was beautiful, almost like you were right in the stars themself. Help me go to sleep right away and slept like a baby, very relaxing, woke up feeling very rested and had a great day. Thank you Joe for picking me too win. As they say in Karaoke, Joe, FLY ME TO THE MOON. Jeanette Hunt Espinoza
Wow! I won a Window to the Universe in a drawing, and after seeing the demonstration, I wanted to upgrade to a larger one. Thank you! It's so beautiful! Jenifer Finkbeiner
I booked $5,000 in business just showing the Amazing Poster! Yeah! Now, I'm in the business! -Eric Schweitzer S.A.I..
My first 7 days of work included 8 paid jobs, one free special needs child, and one free drawing winner. I've made $5,073; double what I was making as a bookkeeper at the bank! I have $600 scheduled for today and $1,330 tomorrow, and demos scheduled for every day next week! Joe, I could not do all this without you. You are a treasure! Lisa Solice S.A.I.
I finally got to check out the new VR STARSCAPES® app with Google Cardboard. It is freaking amazing! I showed it to my sister, who thought it was amazing too, and she wants to be my first customer! I can't wait to get started creating amazing works of art for my customers! Tonya McKinney S.A.I.
I got my first job today from a lead that you guys sent me! Thanks very much! Jim Herne S.A.I.
I started creating STARSCAPES® in 2003. I'm 75 years old now and do a couple every month due to customer referrals. That's all that I need right now. I charge between $8 and $9 a square foot. Jim Naples S.A.I.
Oh my! Joe, thanks for the lead! I love the reaction I get at the unveiling! His wife literally shrieked in excitement! What a day! I made $3,500! Anne Brakeman S.A.I.
I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for all of your support the last three years. When I started this business I just didn't know what to do with it, and I was a new mom.. it took a while for me to get around to it but finally when I did you were RIGHT there guiding me each step. I can't believe I am supporting my family on doing something that makes others so happy!! "oh Lord have Mercy" was the exact quote of the lady I did a presentation for yesterday! lol I'm doing three rooms for her tomorrow!!" I just keeps getting better! and I LOVE sleeping under my OWN stars every night with my daughter. If anyone wants to talk to someone who successfully runs this business please give them my contact info, I'd be more than happy to talk to them! Keep reaching for the stars! Leslee Martin S.A.I.
"The stars are just the same as when you put them up six years ago, we look at them every night. We love them." Tashawn Byrd
Wow! Here's how I started my day. I ironed on the STARSCAPES® logo onto the pocket of my Dickies shirt and put it on. I had to run a couple errands, like the car repair shop, and market. Everywhere I went, people asked me what that logo means! I ended up giving five demo's today and painted some rooms too! Today and tomorrow so far... I will have made $2150! Things are looking up, up, UP! Thank you, Joe, for offering such a great opportunity! Marquise Kizer S.A.I.It was my neighbours birthday on the weekend so I did a Ceiling mural in her bathroom. I was very suprised at how well it turned out. She was totally amazed saying she had never seen anything so amazing in her life, and she cant wait to show her friends and grandkids. Now I see how it all begins! Hopefully more paying customers! Graham Bishop S.A.I., Australia
After I gave my business card to my doctor, he later went to my website that you put up for me, and he called and wants a room done. $1,100. I guess I'm off to a good start! Marquice Kizer S.A.I.
WOW! This was definitely worth the six hour drive to see the STARSCAPES® (showroom) in person! Dennis Knorr
I saw your ad in a magazine, and was curious to see it for myself because you just never know. Well, I happened to be traveling across country, so I stopped in to see the STARSCAPES showroom; and I'm so glad I did! WOW! It is beautiful and truly amazing! That's when I got my Professional StarBiz. I've been an S.A.I. since 2009. Vilia Lighthart S.A.I.
You are amazing! I just love all of our customers, each and every one of you. Thank you all for your business and your friendship throughout the years. Joe Petrashek
Thank you Joe for your dedication and commitment to helping those who are less privileged and less fortunate than we are through Kiva.org . Hans and Lolita Wiesner
Congrats to new STARSCAPES® Artist-Illusionist, Dave Holmquist, for starting today on a 70 room hotel, that he booked just yesterday! That will net him about $12,000 in a couple of weeks. Wouldn't you like to be able to put that kind of money in your pocket? He says, "Joe, I'm doing everything that you told me to do. All I did was take into the lobby, the Extreme Business Card. Asked the staff if they wanted to see something cool. Of course they said yes, and I showed them the demo. The next day the owner called me, and said he was very interested!"
I finished painting 75 rooms in a hotel! Niki Zima S.A.I. in Slovenia
I just painted a hotel! 170 rooms at a discounted price of $160 each. I made $27,200! Thank you STARSCAPES®! Mark Garkow S.A.I.
Absolutely fantastic product! Mike Enlow "The Father of Internet Marketing"
I ended up painting 5 ceilings in one day!! Melody Tucker S.A.I.
We've done 110 rooms so far and we're having so much fun! It's great hearing all the OOHs and WOWs! Garth Malan S.A.I.
Thanks for the help with the pricing Joe! Well, I just made an entire family very happy and made myself $2,800 today. Four child rooms at $495 each, and their master br for $795. I think this is the coolest business! Leslee Martin S.A.I.My 1st job was just a 3' x 4' STARSCAPES® Stargazing Skylite. His agreed upon price was $600. My customer LOVES it! He says that it's the most amazing thing he's ever seen! He says that there's way more stars inside than he sees outside. Marquise Kizer S.A.I.
I did a job the other day for a child, well he's 13 years old. The mother asked me to do it for him. I did it while no one was at the house, which was best, because the little boy doesn't like anyone to go in his room.
We went back later that night for the unveiling. The mom had not yet seen it. I asked her to wait till I got there
When we arrived he was sitting in the living room watching TV. I went over and shook his hand. His mom told him that I had put a surprise in his room. He kept asking what it was. We said that it was a surprise.
I asked him to go to his room to see if he could find his surprise. He looked everywhere, including the closet. I told him to sit down in his chair and to leave his eyes closed until I told him to open them. His mom laid in the bed and closed her eyes too. After about a minute I told them to open their eyes. Of course mom gave a big gasp and a BIGGER WOW. He kept looking at his ceiling. I asked him what he thought. He said, "I love it"! His mom said that he has NEVER done that before with anyone that has given him something. I turned the lights back on for him to see that everything disappears when the lights are on and comes back when the lights are off. When we left the room he decided to stay and look at it. I noticed that he kept turning the lights off and on.
The best part about this job is knowing that I did it for a child with autism. I will possibly see his mom again today, I will ask her if he has enjoyed it. He has also had a fear of the dark, so maybe this will help. His mom told me that she may have me come back to do her other son's bedroom. Not sure yet. She says that he likes being able to sleep in the dark because he had to share a room with his brother who required a night light to be on. We will see.
Before I left I gave him the certificate and asked him again what he thought about his new ceiling. "I LOVE IT", he said.

STARSCAPES® is the ultimate business! Joe Petrashek gives personal attention to you as you are building your skills and business. No being on hold, no non-English speaking phone calls, just plain old great American service! Rich Reynolds S.A.I.
I'm off to do a job which will be two rooms in the home at $7 a sqare foot. One room is 10x10 and the other is 10x11. That's $1,470 and I'm excited to do it as always! Ricky Witt S.A.I. since 2008
New S.A.I. Rich Reynolds speaks after his first practice room!
And here's Wes Rose after doing his first 3' STARSCAPES® Stargazing Skylite!
Joe, I was speaking to another advertiser in my magazine, going through the most
recent issue over the phone. He saw your ad and said that it was one of the
better home-based businesses he knows of. A friend of his had signed up with you
some time ago, and was doing well. Also, he (the advertiser) said he had seen
the results in a house that he was considering buying, and thought it looked
I asked S.A.I. Leslee Martin how her first mountain horizon came out on a customers wall. Actually, I asked her if it was fun to do. She replied: Yes!!! It looks so good! I am in LOVE with the full mountain theme. I'm going to do my master bedroom with the silhouette of my favorite mountain in Utah. I've hiked the summit three times, 18 miles round trip. It would be SO amazing to have that commemorated on my personal wall! Leslee Martin S.A.I.
Leslee's latest testimonial about a 4 year old boy with cancer; and a $2,500 job!
Hey guys! So I went and & gifted a FULL mountain theme for a little boy last night! This little man is almost 4 and has been battling leukemia for three and a half years. :( I can't imagine watching one of my children go through that. They were such a nice, sweet family. The mother had contacted me and asked me what a room like that costs; and that she knew she probably couldn't afford it, due to all the bills with cancer treatments. She said her son loves looking at the stars and she thought it would be really calming for him. I had a free evening, so I decided to give this little boy a full stargazing room!! I also did one in her sisters room! She was so sweet, and in the dark I felt someone tapping my shoulder... the little girl was on the bed getting my attention... she gave me a hug and said "Thank you!". Both parents, the two kids, a little baby and the grandparents all came to the surprise Reveal. This video was the result! If you've never been part of a STARSCAPES® Reveal, you will understand that THIS is why I love doing this so much!
Watch (listen to) her video of the STARSCAPES® Reveal!Leslee Martin
My first job got me $800! And now I've just done two motels! Joe Spaulding S.A.I.Thanks Guys - Looking forward to experiencing the magic! I currently cannot afford the system, but I'm gonna try to raise the money somehow. I'm a retired/disabled man in his 50's that needs a part-time business like to survive mentally... as well as save money for two kids college. I would appreciate any help you can give me in starting this business! I very excited about this legitimate biz op.... as opposed to many other ops I've tried that failed. Thanks again, and God bless, Dave Dixon
Want to thank you SO MUCH for this opportunity to change my life & the lives of others in an oh-so-positive way! Can’t wait to receive my “new life skills” & get movin’ with this…have so many ideas; can’t seem to turn my brain off! I’m lovin’ it! Joni Sayre
What do I like best about STARSCAPES®? Joe's integrity. Steve NiciMy boy fell asleep after 5 minutes of stargazing! Bedroom Customer
I am truly excited....me - an artist...who would have thought!! I am eager to learn EVERYTHING possible in order to get a small piece of God's awesome landscape into homes with the hope they remember who they are and who He is!! That is my secret motive and has always been since I stumbled across your website:) Of course they money is a necessary part to survival and I welcome it....but I have a greater reason and purpose for this endeavor!! Tracey Smith S.A.I.
Its gonna be a slow next month, I only have 9 jobs scheduled. Rodney Robertson S.A.I.
Thanks for all you do for us! Jeff Salm S.A.I.
Well, I had to quit my full time job in order to handle all of the STARSCAPES® business I'm getting! I'm doing 5 - 7 jobs a week, and my pricing is $199 + $5 - $8 a square foot. It's about $1,200 a room. Rodney Robertson S.A.I.
I just did the three bedrooms in a home in one hour and 45 minutes. I made $1,200! John Gates S.A.I.
Received my StarBiz. Just wonderful! Everything we thought and then some!
Hey Joe! Akeem Here! Might be seeing you soon! I'm on the way to Phoenix Arizona
after painting a $5,600.00 3 bedroom job in Las Vegas!!!! Hope all is well with
you, cant wait to talk to you! I sent you a paypal button info for my STARSCAPES
website too. TY!.
I always have had a really hard time with getting to sleep at night. Since I've had my STARSCAPES® to focus on, I no longer have nightmares. Thank you, Joe! Angie in Arizona
Joe, I just did my bathroom ceiling and nailed it!
Doing my first real gig tonight. I'm excited, not scared
because now... after following your instructions, I know I can
(Later, that night...) Uh-mazing!! They were blown away! I am coming back next Wednesday to do her master. Then, she wants me to do her condo in Vegas! It far exceeded her expectations, and mine too! The Milky Way turned out gorgeous and I did a shooting star down the wall. It was incredible. I can't believe I'm actually really good at this! It really was breathtaking the way I brought it down the wall. I showed it to them for 20 minutes... they kept me there talking about it for another 30 minutes; figuring out ways that they can help me get more business with fundraisers, etc. Got the other family scheduled for Monday, and I have another client trying to schedule. I'm super pumped. It definitely seems to be snowballing and I see how the Think and Grow Rich mentality will propel this even more! I'll be painting three rooms this week! My goal is ten jobs a month. I'm going to get good at getting referrals and doing follow up.
(Later, her text... after the $1,200 job...) There are a bunch of people here waiting for the pizza and star show. This is awesome! (With the people in the room now...) The audible gasp and "Wowwww" from 15 plus people in the room was awesome!!! The kids sounded like Christmas morning! And I heard a huge "Thank you, Daddy!!!" And, "I see a planet!" Then an adult said, "I see the little dipper!" It was awesome!! I love this! Leslee Martin, S.AI.
A testimonial from one of Leslee's clients:
Hello friends! I would just like to take a moment to share the experience I recently had with Leslee Martin, Starscapes Artist-Illusionist. I saw in a newsletter that she did something along the lines of painting stars (or at least that's what I got out of it). I figured since my wife and I recently converted my 3-year old's room into a "big boy" room with a space theme, that Leslee's work might fit right in.
After looking at the website, I still wasn't quite sure what it was that she did, but more specifically what it really looked like. I contacted Leslee shortly after and she responded very quickly. I asked her a few questions over the phone and we both decided an in-home demo would be the best way to understand.
Leslee came over that same evening. I showed her my son's room and she set up to create the demonstration. After she was done preparing it, there was a little bit of wait time before the actual viewing. During this time, I got to chat with and get to know a little about Leslee and her family. I'd encourage you to do the same as she's had an interesting life and was fun to talk to.
So, the moment of truth... The big reveal! Leslee takes me into my son's room where the demo piece had been awaiting our return. She asks me to lie down on the floor on my back and close my eyes as she turns off the lights. She makes me promise to keep my eyes closed for two minutes. It's kind of strange, but I keep my word and keep my eyes closed so my eyes will be adjusted to the dark. We chit chat some more and then she tells me I can now open my eyes.
Ladies and gentleman, when I opened my eyes I can honestly say that my heart jumped at the sight of the small sample Leslee had put together! She was hovering something like a mini whiteboard about 3 feet above my face displaying the art she had created. It was truly awesome! After seeing it on such a small scale, I knew I had to have the entire ceiling done! So, we set an appointment for her to do just that. It's been done for a couple of weeks now, and both me and my son are still excited for nighttime to come just so we can turn off the lights and stare at the ceiling!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I don't know that a thousand words would be enough to describe how I feel every night I get to see what Leslee has created for us.
I would encourage everyone to see for yourself what I mean.
Thank you Leslee! You are amazing! -Jeff Lewis

I'm doing a home theater Tuesday for $1,800! (Later...) The owners loved it!! Well, that led them to also wanting one in their bedroom. Chalk up another $1k for me... :) Melody Tucker, S.AI.
I love painting
It is so relaxing for me and everyone loves them!
Congratulations to S.AI. John Hochstetler! John has done rooms in 7 motel properties that led him to more, for a total of 18 properties! Great going, John!
Thank you!!! I live in a rural area where canoeing and
horseback riding is BIG. Just today I went through one of the
resorts at the river, "River's Edge." I could not count all the
cabins!! The opportunities are vast in my part of the world as
well as many biz expositions in the small towns around here. I
am well aware that this biz is going to take off like gang
busters. Everyone who has seen my sample in my bathroom is
excited to have their ceiling done as well! I know STARSCAPES®
is the best business in the world. I will keep you posted.
I believe in STARSCAPES® and have seen the impact it can have on people and their lives. The most graphic example was a woman I knew with MS that had become confined to one or two rooms in her home due to the disease. Her devoted husband had retired early to stay at home and care for her. I received an amazing set of letters from her and her husband after I gave them a STARSCAPES® ceiling. They described how the magic of that ceiling had transformed their daily lives and had given her a new found hope and joy. Lee DePue, S.AI.
Thank you for the referral! I'm going to profit almost $700 from this job thanks to you, Joe, and your service. Nice regards, Frederick Jimenez S.AI.
I have a painting I am doing this weekend about three hours away. I am only charging $2.25 sq ft, but it ends up being almost $800 because I charge an extra $125 for the "milky way" and an extra $25 for every shooting star over 1. Works for me. I may not get rich quick, but just being able to do what I love works for me... Happy Stargazing!! Melody Tucker S.AI.
Wow! Just received our Professional StarBiz and went through it! You guys overdeliver! Bob Garrett & Ray Flowers, Texas
We did our first paying job for $1,500 and we're excited! When the lights were turned out, somebody was making noise with their feet; I asked the customer, "Is that you or your daughter"? He said "It's me!" The man was kicking his feet like a little girl, he was so happy! He's bringing all his friends over to see it, when we come back this week! Doug & Lisa Metz, S.AI.
A hotel wants me to do 160 rooms in February! Pite Mogoje, S.AI.
Joe, you and your people are the greatest. I'm proud to be a part of STARSCAPES®. Tell that good gentleman, Alex, Ken says hi! Your friend, Ken Leedy S.AI.
Hey Joe, this is Greg. I just finished my first paying job. A 12 x 12 room for 500 bucks! Yippie! I also booked three more jobs from that one! Greg Watson S.AI. (winner of the STARSCAPES® StarBiz drawing.)

I have been reading and studying a book by Jack White called
"Mystery of Making It". Have you ever heard of it? If
not, find a copy and read it. It is brilliant! Anyway, the book
has taught me many things about myself and the many myths about
making and marketing art. I have seen the light! The ideas in
the book will help me to finally take my
business, and career, to the heights that I had
originally dreamed of. I realize there is no limit to
where I can go with my painting!
I did skylites in my three grandson's, and granddaughter's room, they love it. Less noise more sleep. I have put two in our room. Helps make everyone go to sleep. I have done ten customers as well, with great feedback. Don Emond
Ok this is the greatest thing since 7up! The course is easy to understand and, I like the fact that I can be in business for myself but not by myself. I have painted several Cosmic Skylites in my home and have also put some on foam to take along with me as they are easy to roll up. Funny how those Skylites attract big attention! To say the least I didn't even have the chance to say much about it and next thing I know -- I now have a job lined up! Very exciting indeed! Nancy Kohl
I was so happy when I finally find your website. I have been searching years and years for a home biz opp. I actually jumped up and down when I was reading through your website. Absolutely amazing!! Christelle, Boksburg, Gauteng, South Africa.
Thanks again for your help, Joe. I thank God you are there for me every time I need you and also thanks to Starscapes International. Back in 1998, you helped me in the worst time in my life, you gave me a hand and helped me to stand up again, and now you are doing it for my daughter, my son in law and my grandson, the new STARSCAPES® Artist-Illusionists! I have included their photos for you. Thanks Joe. God bless you my friend. Humberto Melendez S.Ai. Monterrey, Mexico
I ordered my StarBiz with the Pelican Storm cases and I LOVE THEM! Everything is organized and I know where everything is in those pockets. They are very professional looking. Donna Annis S.Ai. Wyoming
I have now ordered the Pro. StarBiz and don't feel like a stalker now. Yup, I've been following you STARSCAPES® and for 20 years now! Thank you, Joe! Kathy Knowlton Tereskerz
STARSCAPES® is the most phenomenal thing I've ever seen. I've already booked two rooms! (And I don't have the kit yet!) Charles Spencer-Zito
STARSCAPES® is truly the best biz opp with value that I've seen in a very long time. Tabatha Tucker-Hong
One of my customers said "I'm with NASA. Dude... you nailed it!" Bruce Wingard S.Ai.
STARSCAPES® is the best business opportunity I have ever come across in my life. Ikenna Anene Nigeria
I was at Maropeng - The Cradle of Humankind, a
World Heritage Site near Gauteng, South Africa. That's
where we read history on how Humanity started in Africa more
than 7 million years ago. The rain gives them problems for
stargazing. Their official, who's an Astronomer, will be in
attendance and they will be relying on me to install The
at the visitor centre. My dream is to visit Arizona by end of
the year. Pite Mogoje S.AI.
The B&B I'm
doing today, for the 12 rooms, most are 12x12, is $400 per room.
Not bad huh?! $4,800.
At the showroom, I had a great time visiting with you, Joe! I will keep reaching for the moon, so that I will always land upon the stars! And I will paint until the brush is torn from my hand! Melody Tucker S.AI.
Have you ever lost money looking for a good business? Ralph Duffy S.AI. has.
I love this business! Bob Dewald S.AI.
My daughter says she was looking at the fairy in the midst of the stars and she fell asleep! That was such good news! Lisa Metz S.AI.
Donna Annis S.AI. talks about STARSCAPES® .
In our further quest to build brand awareness and develop more leads for the S.AI., watch for our newest ad in the Romantic Homes magazine Dec. 13th, and Jan. 10th! The circulation is 285,000. Divided by 50 states = 5,700 possible readers!
I had a booth at the Wholistic Fair in Casper and booked a $1000 job. I am so pleased with everything you provided in the kit. You thought of everything and provided several different options! Thank you so much! Donna Annis S.AI.
I've read the manual and watched the video and have completed
my first practice room! The StarBiz is very thorough.
I just did three jobs and made $2,000 in three days! I love doing this! Ron Williams S.AI
I really appreciate your continuing support and creativity. My NEW website looks fantastic, sounds fantastic, and links viewers to my email address if they want. Really nice! Thanks again, Joe! Rob Manne S.AI.
I received my StarBiz and love it! I did my first practice room and it came out really nice. I am doing another this week for my nieces, and am also doing a networking event this week, and I'm super excited about that! Hope to book a few jobs this week! Devona Pratt
Hi JOE - thank you so much for this breathtakingly great
opportunity. I got my StarBiz yesterday. I
spent most of today studying my materials and I have
never seen anything like this before! I'm gonna
continue with my preparations tomorrow and I'm
optimistic that in two days time I will be ready to
start working. I never thought that one day I will
be doing a kind of job that is rewarding and that helps
to bring back smiles of happiness and appreciation in
people's faces. Another interesting fact JOE: My
son prefers to drink coffee or juice using a beautiful
Coffee Mug. I have never been so happy in my life.
Everything was received in order last night. Spent several hours this morning reviewing the information and I can't wait to get started. I purchased this primarily to give to my youngest son for him to work, but I think I will be working this with him. Cindy Scott
Joe, I was so excited to call you a couple of weeks ago to FINALLY be able to invest into STARSCAPES®. I have wanted to do this for a very long time as you well know. Please have made for my girlfriend (Soon to be fiancé once I get the money for the ring.) a certificate and name badge. Thanks for all the great stuff you've sent us. I will soon be telling my bosses that I will be taking a day or two off work per week so I can work my business. I just want you to know, I will be one of your rags to riches stories down the road. This business is going to give us the security we've both wanted and have been searching for. Thanks for everything. Kerwin SAI, Colorado
UPDATE: Hi, Joe. So far I have completed 9 rooms. All with great
success! Everybody loves it! I wore the hat you gave me this weekend
camping and I got several inquiries about it. (Thanks for everything
by the way.) One gentleman who saw my cap knew about
. He said he knew someone that had been in the business a long time
and had great success with it. We took that as a confirmation that
we have made the right decision to buy into the business. We are
very excited to become a part of the
family and we have many ideas to get the business going. I have
wanted to get into this business for the last 5 years but due to
hard times, I was unable to be able to buy the Professional
StarBiz. Finally, we sold every extra thing we had at the house
and finally raised the capitol to buy it. Persistence pays. We feel
it was a good move and am looking forward to being financially
blessed as we build this business.

Joe, first of all, thank you for the thoughtful gifts that came
with the STARSCAPES®
StarBiz . They show a care for your
that I have rarely come across. It was also a great idea to send the
PDF book that you sent to read while I waited for the
StarBiz to arrive. The book really lights a fire under you to
succeed! Thank you for that. I am quite happy with the detail and
completeness of things included in the business package. To think of
and include things down to something small like a doorstop is
incredible and comprehensive planning for your customer. Not to
mention the Galactification Machine, which is a beautiful and finely
made instrument. And the new cases are superb. Everything is neatly
laid out inside and easy to keep neat. You've done a great job with
the package and the materials and instructions included in it. I
have done six practice rooms in my house and each one was definitely
We did the Milky Way on my bedroom ceiling and walls (my second room). Wow! Just Wow! The galaxy center just glows like crazy and I feel like I'm really out in space. We'll do a Skylite on the Living Room ceiling tonight so as to provide our own sample for friends. The StarBiz is my 60th birthday present to myself, and although I'm still working full time, my goal is to be doing STARSCAPES® (and other art projects) for a living by the end of this year. This is a lot more fun than doing tech support from a call center! Theresa Holmes SAI
UPDATE: It's been just about a month since I first saw the ad for STARSCAPES®. Since then, I've been moving right along on the process of preparing to turn my dream of painting STARSCAPES® into a reality. I've now painted my office ceiling, my bedroom ceiling, and a portal on my living room ceiling. I've developed a signature logo, learned a lot of lessons, begun preparing marketing materials, and will soon begin showing my STARSCAPES® murals to friends and acquaintances. This is my present to myself for my 60th Birthday (coming up in July). My goal by then is to have painted a number of portals in what little spare time I have (I work full-time) and to have proven I can make a living doing STARSCAPES® and related arts and crafts, and have a lot of fun doing it. By the end of the year, I plan to be out doing STARSCAPES® for friends and acquaintances in the hospitality industry around Colorado, as well as the residential and commercial building industries. ...

I just made $2,500 with my STARSCAPES StarBiz today! Do you know how hard I'd have to work in my landscaping business to make that? Dave DeVries, Michigan
Toni and I just did two average rooms (12' x 15' and 10' x 10') yesterday that netted
$2, 210.00 cash. They were so impressed that they gave us an extra $90 tip!!! We love this business and the effect it has on our clients. What a wonderful way to make a living!
When I saw it, I couldn't sleep that night! I called my
sister and told her that this business was going to rescue me.
I just completed my first paying job for a 10 year old boy. His mother wanted it to be a surprise. She said he was absolutely amazed! "Mom, I love it! The roof looks like it just lifted up and away! (Just the reaction I had hoped for!) The shooting star is so cool!" The mother said that he couldn't stop talking about it, and that he didn't just like it, he LOVED it. I left his Owner's Manual for them and he read it cover to cover. He then started to point out the constellations to his Mom. She was amazed at the wonder and excitement of her son with his new present. She could not thank me enough for introducing them to STARSCAPES! Furthermore, she said I could use her for a reference anytime, and she had a friend, who's son also would be delighted with a STARSCAPES Mural of his own. I'll always remember the excitement that she portrayed over the phone, and I'm so proud to be associated with STARSCAPES! Shirley Griest SAI
I got my first two paying jobs, one for $1440 and one for $660 they were amazed at the results and have promised to introduce me to as many people as they can. Mickey Smith SAI
I just did all 40 rooms in a Lodge on a lake! And I also did a room in a palace in Poland! Ania Binek SAI, Poland

I had an unexpected mural job this week from a retired couple who I spoke with last winter. They have been repainting the inside of there home and just finished their bedroom last week. I went out yesterday and put the STARSCAPES® up and they were of course BLOWN AWAY! It is such a kick to be in that room when they first see their new STARSCAPES® FX! We were in there laying on the floor talking for at least an hour, as I pointed out points of interest with my laser pointer, and needless to say they were in total amazement. It still amazes me as well and humbles me also because I have not received this level of client enthusiasm pertaining to any other art form I have worked with to date. (That’s around forty years give or take.) July will be my best month this year. Len Sodenkamp SAI
Hi Joe, we had a party for the 4th of July, I sold 6 ceiling jobs by showing my living room ceiling, 3 were backyard versions at $400 each, the other 3 are deluxe versions at $5,00 per foot. Yes, I had a very good weekend! Mike Adams SAI
Just did my first
for a client. It was fun! Earned $1,000 to do two rooms.
Thank you Joe.
S.AI Mike Adams has been so busy lately that his wife told him to go out and reward himself with a new motorcycle! And that's what he did. Now he's riding a new $32,000 Sreaming Eagle Ultra Classic Harley Davidson! Ridin' in style! Congrats, Mike! Mike says he's doing tons of "backyard versions". His pricing is $6 a square foot, average $450 a room. If he has to travel more than 12 miles away, or he does a deluxe version, he charges $12. He just finished two backyard versions for $800. Joe Petrashek for Mike Adams S.AI
I had made about 7 or 8 calls last week to B&B's and asked for an appointment to show them what I offer. I did two rooms (in one property), she loved the demo. I showed the table tent sample and told her about the lodge listing, and there you have it! I did two rooms, she loved them!! She said, "Wow...wow..wow! It is just beautiful! I am telling my friends that own a large B&B in Manchester Vermont... and I am having a reporter contact you from the Saratogian!" Sure enough, about 2 days later a reporter came and spoke with me, he sent a photographer... I will be in the paper soon, I don't know when for sure. Darlene Snay SAI
I've been ripped off by so many internet businesses, and am so glad to have found a real home business. And I can do this! Before I received my StarBiz Program, I had 20 customers lined up. Craig Luoto, Oregon
Joe, I received the sample hotel tent, and it is great! I want to thank you for all your advertising, ideas, and help. I do not believe there is any company that can match you! I vouch for you and STARSCAPES® every chance I get. Thank you and God Bless you. Darlene Snay SAI (since 2005)
Joe - the one thing I can say is that you've
always been there for us. Your creativity with all the marketing pieces is
The best thing about STARSCAPES® is that we get to share it with others. Dave Holmquist SAI (since 2010)
No problem with the economy. I'm averaging 3 to 5 a week, every week. At the fair, we got 156 interested leads which will result in closing 25% of them. Joe, it's easy to make $1,000 a week. Bruce Wingard SAI (since 2007)
I did a doctor's bedroom ceiling, and he said "It's the most relaxing thing! When I come home, I lay down for 15 or 20 minutes to unwind; and then, I go in and say hello to my wife. Believe me... doctors have bad days too." Charles Myers SAI (since 2008)
I've done eight murals over the last two weeks! Len Sodenkamp SAI (since 2006)
I did my first job this week for $260. I was there for only 2 hours. I'm excited! Thanks a lot Joe, and may God bless you richly. Terrence Boutte SAI (since 2009)
I have done 14 rooms total so far. Lots of children's rooms. Belinda Blackburn SAI (since 2009)
* Feb. 2010 issue of Home Business Connection magazine lists Starscapes International as a Top Opportunity in Home Services. They list these reasons: There's demand. It's affordable. It's customizable. It's flexible. It's recession-proof. It's yours (hire employees or not).
My last job was a suite in a hotel, and they also paid for my flight, which made me feel very glamorous. They have 64 more rooms, and I'm hoping for the best! Sara Tedenljung SAI (since 2008)
Just a word of thanks and appreciation for the ad you are running for us in the (very high end) duPont Registry magazine. Very considerate of you and we all do appreciate the help! Drew Farnese SAI (since 2004)
WOW! ... I cannot think of any other company that goes to the lengths that Joe Petrashek does to see to it that his customers make some serious money with his product. I'm very proud to recommend STARSCAPES® to anyone who would like the opportunity to make some extra cash or even start a new career in a fun home business. From this advertisement on our behalf in the Dupont Registry Magazine. I can see the potential for many SAI's to benefit big-time from Joe's generosity. The potential for STARSCAPES® to become an internationally known specialty decorative service is enormous with ads like this. Thanks Joe, on behalf of all of us who purchased your product! You make STARSCAPES® better and better! Frank Wilson SAI# 1717 (since 2005)
SAI Ron Williams quit his job at the airport and is doing STARSCAPES® now full time! And his wife says that because he's not as stressed... she likes him better and he's fun to be with! His classified advertisement is pulling in new clients like crazy! He was just driving home from a couple of jobs when I phone him. $500 & $700. Not too shabby is it? He's got 3 more jobs booked, so far, next week, and 4 or 5 for the first week of December. I don't think he's even considered Gift Certificates for Christmas yet! Ron has left a lot of his short telephone script with the SAI Inner Circle community. Joe
This is Lisa Munyun, and I recently received the STARSCAPES® StarBiz Package. John and I have been real busy experimenting with it; and getting ready to do it for dough! It's so cool! But the main reason I'm emailing you is to say thanks. We look forward to STARSCAPES®! John and Lisa Munyun (since 2009)
I have already done my first job for a total amount of US$3,250.00 painting the villa of five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Thanks a lots for this unique opportunity! I am looking forward to becoming a gold member in the Inner Circle. Best regards, Hussain in Bahrain.
My starry sky gives me a great
and deep feeling of freedom. Very soon, I feel very relaxed.
This is Vilia Lighthart, your second drawing winner from this past Saturday. Thank you SO MUCH for making this opportunity available! I still can hardly believe that my name popped up on the contest screen and yet, somehow I knew it was my turn. Here's why...
After months of unemployment and a discouraging series of family illnesses following the passing of my mother a few days before Christmas 2007, I was wondering when my life would ever take a turn so I could stop worrying about bills. Not to mention ever finding the time to pursue my dreams. Then my sister reminded me that, "When you do what is really your heart's desire, what you are really meant to do ..the money will come." I had to ask myself, "What is it again that I really, really want to do?" I suddenly remembered the upcoming Starbiz Giveaway day and how excited I had periodically been since first discovering STARSCAPES.COM several years ago. So I took out my 2 sample posters safely tucked away during a move and hung them up as a message to myself, those around me, and to God that I was really listening this time! Over the next couple days, several people commented to me that if life seemed impossibly difficult, I should pray and remember that God never forsakes those who love and trust in Him.
I prayed. I asked my heart what is my heart's desire and held onto the response. I fell asleep looking at "my stars" ... I got up and logged onto the computer an hour early just to be sure I wasn't mistaken about the time the drawing started! I faithfully stayed at the computer all morning. Coincidentally, I had had a possible job appointment for 10am on Saturday morning but the night before, I got a call that this woman was under the weather and would have to reschedule. I had wondered until then how in the world I would be able to watch my computer and go to that appointment too. I guess "the Universe" was setting everything in its proper order ... thank you again, Joe, for your part in a future filled with making others smile! Vilia Lighthart, soon to be SAI!
For years I have been telling people that have expressed interest in the STARSCAPES home business, that you, Joe, as trustee and founder, work hard for the success of everyone who buys into STARSCAPES. This is just one more proof. Giving us the new brochures at your cost. Actually way below any of our individual costs as my printer would charge me a minimum of 25 cents per unit for an order of 10,000! So thanks again, Joe, for helping each of us to market our work as SAI's in a most cost effective manner! You are the best and a very bright star! Frank Wilson SAI #1717
Recent Q: How long does the
Creation Paint™ last through the years?
I hung the 3D Demo Poster up in the bathroom (which was the darkest room in the house during the day), and showed my 6 year old son. He like it so much, that he wanted to go get his pillow! As soon as I get my tax refund back, I'm in! I'm tired of working 12 to 14 hour days. Tanya Lewis, Rhode Island
I just want to thank you! You guys have been nothing but patient with me and all my questions! Even though you've been through many of the same inquiries, you have yet to act like mine are any less important than the first time you ever answered anything. You guys are great! I know I will enjoy working with you over the years!! Michelle Lambert, S.A.I. , Texas
At this time, January 2009, in my area, 20 stores have closed down, and 7 art galleries have just vanished. STARSCAPES is now my only source of income, as the fine art market has apparently died. We just completed a 9.5 foot by 11 foot room for this lady for $950, and gave her the walls as a bonus. She tipped me $50, and gave me the check for $1,000. This is the fourth time I've been tipped for my STARSCAPES! (In my other fine artwork, people don't consider tipping.) People, of course, don't need it, but they buy it because they become passionate about it. It's amazing appeal is universal. Frank Wilson, S.A.I. (See Frank in the TV News! Click here to watch "Art in the Dark" video!) (Please keep in mind that because you'll be using way less than an ounce of paint on the entire ceiling to create the masterpiece, your cost of paint for each STARSCAPES® that you create, will only be about $5. Yep - that's five dollars each.)
I've never seen something more beautiful than this! Uchenna Okoludo, Nigeria
This has to be the most desirable product on the market! Gary Stark
I just want to report about the outcome of this
job I was talking about back in June. It was a success! The starry sky came out
just beautifully in this huge room with its church-like ceiling! The GM was
absolutely indispensable since my client wanted about 15 constellations and was
quite fussy about the astronomical correctness and so on. But they were
overwhelmed with the result and very happy; and so was I. I'm very proud of my
greatest STARSCAPES job ever, and more than content with the
financial outcome. The job took me three days to complete and in these three days I made as much money as in three months at my ordinary,
fulltime job! Photos are posted online at the (members only) SAI Inner
Circle under Misc. folder. Thanks Joe, for this opportunity! I love STARSCAPES! Per Forsström, SAI
Everyone loves the night sky so I'm sure
everyone will want STARSCAPES in at least one room! Daniel Pomeroy, California

Thank you for sending me the StarBiz
Introductory Package. It is beautiful! Shams, Saudi Arabia
There are a lot of scam business opportunities out there, and there are also a bunch of legitimate operations that really don't offer much support. And, of course, there are always good opportunities to fail in. But I would have to say that anyone who CAN do this, who fails under your tutelage, would not have made it in any other business. You are giving a great opportunity to a great number of people at a time when it is sorely needed. Joseph Hall, S.A.I., West VirginiaI have received the STARSCAPES home business package and was highly impressed with the quality of the Galactification Machine, and all the other materials that came with it. The heavy package arrived at our door with amazing speed. I sent you a bank draft on a Monday afternoon, and the package arrived Wednesday at 1 pm. I'm extremely cautious of any internet offers, and took a full 5 months of careful research, including the Better Business Bureau (BBB), before I finally made a decision to purchase.
My initial reaction to the STARSCAPES web page was that it was too good to be true, however I sent for the "demo poster" just to see if it would impress me and my friends, as the site promised. I was very pleasantly surprised with the results.
I showed a few friends the poster to see if there would be a market for STARSCAPES in my area. Most of my showings were very positive, with the end result being, 5 to 8 ceilings to do before I even decided to buy the home business package.
Before I made the final decision to purchase, I had a number of questions that needed to be answered. Alex Page, from STARSCAPES returned my call within minutes. Over the next two weeks, I made further calls, and each time my call was returned within minutes. I have found that the EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE has continued even after I bought the package.
To me, Alex Page was the "face" of STARSCAPES.COM, a very sincere, no pressure, representative. Thanks for your help, Alex. Ray Cornell from Canada$2,040 for 4 hours work! Frank Wilson, S.A.I., California
When I watched the (training) DVD, I was in awe! I only wanted to make an extra $20,000 with this. Now, less than two weeks later, I've just booked my first job for $500, and I've raised my goal to $100,000! Gary Gardner, S.A.I., Washington
I went on a demo appointment last month in a 15,000 square
foot house in an exclusive Country Club. They had a huge game room and a thirty
seat home theater. I wrote up a proposal and expected a response fairly soon. I
was on pins and needles for a month hoping to get it. Well I just got the
approval to start painting. This is my biggest job yet. Did not budge on the
price. The total for the approved job is $20,000 yes twenty thousand. As you can
see I am very excited! Happy painting to everyone! Alex Negron, S.A.I.
STARSCAPES is the best thing that ever happened
to me! Darlene, New York
When I first started and read your advertisements about making up
to $1500 a day, I thought that while some might make that, most probably don't.
But guess what? I just had a $2,000 day! An 83 year old man and his wife... 2
rooms in their house. He told me, "I've seen everything. I've been up one side
of the street and down the other. I fought in World War II. But I've never ever
seen anything so incredible"! Frank Wilson, California
I just wanted to thank you and STARSCAPES® for the best Fathers Day experience a guy could wish for. This past week I had my 22 year old son over to paint STARSCAPES® in his old room at our house. We had a GREAT time! We were laughing, joking and actually enjoying something in common together. He is more excited about STARSCAPES® than I've seen him about anything over the last several years. We had such a good time that we've decided to do some of our jobs together and share the enjoyment of creating STARSCAPES®. Again, thank-you! Sincerely, Alex P., 47
What we love about this unique and profitable
business is we are in charge of our own destiny. When our prospective clients
first view the demo we have, the are in AWE! Keep looking up to the Universe,
it's our canvas. At a local Ramada Inn, I painted 5 rooms with a six foot
STARSCAPES® Skylite. Now, he wants me to do another 120! When
I gave him the initial demonstration, he said "I have never seen anything so
spectacular in my life!" . Fred and Becky G. SAI #01653, Ohio, 69
Well, I've been in the business now for two
months and have a motel coming up I'll be doing with 26 rooms. After that is
another one with 27 rooms. Previous to these, I've done 20 residential rooms and
200 motel rooms. I've been charging between $100 and $200 for each room. I know
I should probably be charging more, but I'm making between $700 and $900 a day.
Each job takes me between 35 and 40 minutes to create. My 22 year old daughter
helps me and she just loves it! Jerry H., Virginia, 57
I was talking to our city's largest home builder
and he wants me to put STARSCAPES® in not only his
home, but all of his model homes too! I took a "leap of faith" and signed up for
the "home show", and I'm already getting calls from local designers!
Just a quick Email to let you know that I have completed 10 paid jobs. Everyone of my customers have been blown away with their STARSCAPES® masterpiece. I am going to target some motels and B&B's etc. now that I have full confidence in my work. I will keep you posted with how I get on. Mark Bettridge, s.a.i., England
Did a bedroom last night, $455, 12x12, my customers love it!!! I'm getting good at this. Off to Cambridge on Sunday to complete 10 paintings. UPDATE: Next job paid... over $700! Gui R., England
We drove from northern California (832 miles) undecided. After viewing STARSCAPES® in person, we were sold. It is just amazing! We are very excited to get started, and look forward to doing business with Joe and his staff. Gene & Pat Miles
STARSCAPES® is fun and profitable - I get a real sense of creative accomplishment with it as well. Once you've practiced on your own kids rooms, invite friends and neighbors over to view. Most of my business has come from referrals. People really do have to see one to get the full impact. It really blows most people away. And it is very rewarding to have provided that for them . Joe provides great marketing resources for new artists. I made my investment back within about 4 months. I work it REALLY part time... and am very glad that I have the ability/skill to make an extra few hundred dollars whenever I need to. Allison Hays
This is not only super profitable but FUN, FUN,
FUN. F. Allen
I've done a few STARSCAPES® jobs already but lately have had a profound revelation. After completing a room for a customer, I simply mentioned to him, "While I'm here, why don't I go ahead and paint your other room for 1/2 price". He said okay! That was a $470 job... simply for the asking! Martin C., Germany
Just got the package today! And thanks for the great message along with my outstanding webpage. We are painting 2 jobs tomorrow. We are on the move!!! G. Gross, Louisiana
NOTE THAT WENT OUT TO OUR WORLDWIDE
"INNER CIRCLE" private community:
Hmmm... let's guess $397 for a show special x 50 jobs = $19,850. Now... when she does a room, how many EXTRA ROOMS in the house do you think she can do, while she's still there, at half price? One extra? Two extra? The bathrooms? Hallways? Stargazing Skylites in the living room or family room? If she gets them all to have their friends, families and neighbors over for the "unveiling" of their signed and dated STARSCAPES® MASTERPIECE... and gives them a deal they can't refuse, like, "Tonight I'm going to do something very special for you! You're going to get THE SAME SHOW SPECIAL!" How many EXTRA JOBS will she get? How many when she does the same with them? Remember... if you don't ask... you don't get. So ASK! (And shake your head up and down, in "yes" fashion, while you're waiting for their answer. It's really, really hard for someone to say "no" when you're doing that!) --old salesmen's trick.
She had a drawing for a free skylight and had over 800 entries (sales leads). (I'll tell you HOW to turn them into happy customers in the next GALACTIFIER NEWSLETTER.) Your StarBuddy, Joe Petrashek, SAI
I just wanted to say that your product is truly amazing! My father,David Jipson of Standish, Maine, was an electrician by trade and ordered the kit back in 1995 and showed me a "demonstration" on a part of my bedroom ceiling. I couldn't believe my eyes! The ceiling disappeared and there they were. Actual STARS in my room! It was exactly the release I needed from the tension of losing my mother to a terminal illness 6 months prior. Sadly my father passed away shortly after and I was left by myself.
For many nights the only comfort I got was to lie in bed, in that room and gaze at the stars with the memory of my father and I creating them on my ceiling. I was never able to venture out with it like he wanted to do as I could never find the kit my father had originally ordered. It's something that I wish to this day I had ,(the original container) just to carry that part of my dad's happiness with me when I would create for others. I would like to someday order for my own when I can afford to, but unfortunately now can't be that time. I just now remembered the name of your company out of a dead sleep and had to see if I could find you on the internet. I just wanted to thank you Mr. Petrashek, and your company for giving me such a great memory night after night. Sincerely, Dan J., Maine
I have only done two practice ceilings so far and have learned by a few mistakes. My master bedroom will be next and I am very confident it will be really good. I have orders for nine ceilings so far without even trying. I am going to give myself another week of practice before getting out there and pulling in the greenbacks. Calum M., Scotland
Hi,Joe! Many, many thanks!! I really appreciate your quick reply.
Top customer service! It was great speaking with you yesterday, the maestro!
Your words of support really are doing me good and in the future wants to make
it a success. I am working very hard at it right now. And even if it don't work
( financially) I have got now skills and artistic talents which I am proud of.
All thanks to you.
Thank you for coming up with STARSCAPES®, and thank you for all the help and support that you and STARSCAPES INTERNATIONAL provide. You and STARSCAPES® are truly a blessing, and I am having a great time with it too! Jeff S.A.I., STARSCAPES® of West Michigan
I have had the demo posters for 2 weeks (they are awesome) and have about 10 ceilings to do (co-workers & family). I ordered the full program after hours on Friday, Sept. 26 on-line. I will be interested to see how fast it gets here (Alberta, Canada). I know that it will not be received until Mon. morning at head office. I am anxious to start spreading the stars. Tracy in Alberta.
I'm as mesmerized by the STARSCAPES® you painted as the children are. This is one home improvement that will never go out of style and will never need to be redone. I think it will also be one of their fondest childhood memories after they are grown and gone. I thank you for doing such a great job. Christi B., M.D., F.A.C.S. , Arizona
I ordered the
package and receIved e-mail from the STARSCAPES®
staff that it was shipped out. Wow, that is service, thank you
Paul in Poland
(This letter is from our private and busy chat
group for STARSCAPES®
The point of this post is (though not as
inspirational as some I have read) to reinforce that this business works, this
is honest work and you can be proud of working it. Just stick to your guns, get
out there and make it happen. I see both Dawn and I working this full time by
the end of the year. And as for wanting the convention when the poll opens, my
vote will be a resounding yes, not so much for education (which will come from
just all of us meeting) but to actually get to meet Joe and all of you in this
group. Shane and Dawn Powell, California
I've just received the demo kit... WOW... It's
simply amazing!! I'm very excited about his opportunity, and hope to be able to
get the deluxe package soon. Pat P., Sasketchewan
I thought I'd post a note to let everyone know
how things are going so far. I've been "opened for business" for 2 1/2 weeks now
and just completed my 12th ceiling today! Everyone just loves their stars! It's
funny because I get a job to do a kid's room and after the parents see it they
all want me to come back to do their room. The most skeptical are always the
men. Before they see it they assume that it's going to be those cartoony plastic
glow-in-the-dark stars. Then, after they see it...I get the best reaction from
them because they were such doubting Thomases!!! (Does my heart good :-)
I just had the money for this a few days ago, but had to pay some bills with it. I've been showing the poster to some friends and they all said, "I want one!". I've got 5 jobs booked. My kids are "dying" for it! The IT business is really stressful for me with my 3 kids, and I can't wait to get out. I know STARSCAPES®is the answer for me! I hope you can give me some more time so that I can still get the bonuses. Mary Ellen in New Hampshire
I am a new member who just obtained my Deluxe
Package. My, how time flies! Unlike some of you, I have not been able to devote
as much time as I would like to make this program a success. I have perused
EVERY posting on the STARSCAPES®Artist
(member's only) board (yes, all 800+ of them), and I have gleaned many tips and
suggestions to add to my own business. I reluctantly have to confess a key point
- I ordered the demo kit almost 3 months ago, but I procrastinated in making the
poster. Part of me felt this was a "scam" like so many other opportunities you
find on the internet. I have always been of the mindset that you reap what you
sow, so this program gave me exactly what I needed - a unique idea that relied
upon my own initiative for success. I can tell you with great confidence that I
am convinced of this program's viability. In addition, I had the chance to meet
Joe in person, so I had the first-hand experience to meet the innovator of
Starscapes®. You can tell a lot about someone when you meet
face-to-face, and Joe's genuine desire to add to your success is blatantly
It has been an exciting year with your company and I am still very happy I joined. Thank you for your wonderful service and fantastic opportunity. I'm proud to be called a STARSCAPES®Artist. Terry C., Georgia
I've been doing jobs for friends and neighbors for the last couple of months, and I haven't really had the nerve or the confidence to do a job for money yet. But I got a call from someone who picked up my brochure from a local restaurant. They wanted me to do their boys' and girls' rooms. They didn't want it for themselves because they thought it was just for the kids, and the woman was really skeptical anyway. I had to come back the next night to finish the boys' room, but when I finished with the girls' room, they all came in to see it. Joe... I couldn't get them out of the room! Now, the parents wanted it too, along with having their hallway done, their living room done and their bathroom done! They told me that I wasn't charging enough for the work and they gave me a real nice bonus. I asked them if they'd be kind enough to write a referral letter for me, and they said it won't be needed.
He's got me six jobs to do from the people he works for, and she's a nurse that is badly stressed out every day. She is telling everyone she works for to get it to relieve their heavy stress built up during the day. After I finished painting the boys' room, I went into the girls' room, and the mother was on the bed holding her daughter under the stars. Relaxing together. I feel that I'm doing the right thing for people. Joe... I've been working for years, (I do electrical work.) and nobody sees the work that I do. This feeling of appreciation I'm getting from these people overwhelms me. I feel good. I haven't felt this good for years. I just wanted you do know about this, and doing business with you and your company has always been good. I just wanted you to hear this story and to know how I feel. Thank you. Glen Hutchins, Michigan
I just did my first professional job for a little girl's room. When I finished it, I packed up all my tools and equipment and walked down the hallway singing "When you wish upon a star...". They all came running! All four family members came in and when I turned off the lights, they all yelled WOWWWWW!!! I had goosebumps all over my back I was so excited! J.D. Bullock, Virginia
Joe, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the generous way you solved a problem I was having. Each time I call into customer service it is a pleasant experience. Your staff is always friendly and professional. They do an excellent job. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for making this creative business available in the first place. I am glad I ordered it and I'm looking forward o a successful future with it. Matt Wilkiel, California
I made an order from you on this past Friday and Purolator was here this morning. Anyways thanks! That was fast! I know you are a busy man but the people in your office are great! Please let them know that for me. Thank again. Alex Sinclair in Alberta, Canada
Joe, thanks for making this so fun and easy. I love it! Lorraine in Colorado
Thank You very much Joe. I knew that you would take care of everything, that's why you are the Man, and things are going pretty good I have a few jobs lines up for this weekend, mainly trade outs, like one guy is remodeling my garage apartment for doing his ceiling, and another is giving me a brand new treadmill for doing his, so things are pretty good. Take Care and Thanks again. Rick in Texas
It's Leanne here from New Zealand, I thought that I would drop you a quick line to let you know that my replacement of the demo pack arrived INTACT this time, now my enthusiasm has come back, naturally before I was disappointed, now I am absolutely over the moon. I first put the posters in my 2 girls rooms, my younger one is 3 years old, and she was totally blown away... her first reaction was "Oh that's just so pretty"! To hear that come from her was awesome!!!!! My eldest daughter was also impressed. I have also shown my family, friends, neighbors and a couple of and just to let you know how impressed they were, I will most definitely be purchasing the entire pack from you just as soon as I can come up with the money. I'm sure it will be much sooner than expected. Well done on your creation, I only hope that with the bonuses that come with the main pack, I can wipe New Zealand out with it!!!!! Thank you again. Leanne in New Zealand
I want to thank you for this business opportunity, with the rate I'm going, I'll be debt free in no time thank you ALMIGHTY JOE. Please continue to send me those motivational and inspirational e-mails of yours, I love reading them. L. Shogbamimu S.A.I., Republic of Ireland
By the way this past weekend we organized a booth demo at one of the shopping malls... As you said, everyone was amazed! K. Oile, Kenya
I got my STARSCAPES® package barely 3 weeks now and I've done 10 jobs so far. Men this home business is great. I see a bright future in it provided one is ready to work. I had to forgo my job to start this business fulltime. I'm counting the stars and wouldn't stop till I count a million stars! L. Shogbamimu S.A.I., Republic of Ireland
My name is James Logue and I know your product is Awesome! I ordered your Demo Package for $29.95. Once I received the posters and hung them up on the ceiling, My Parents, Neighbors, Friends and I were all amazed and in AWWWE!
Hi everyone......just want to say hi......I am here in Australia.......nice to know there are stars being painted by all of us all over the planet......I am just about to concentrate more on promoting myself.....I love this work.....it's just getting people to actually see a ceiling...then they are sold.......nice to know we do something that gives so much joy....Joe has been incredibly supportive ...my thanks to him and my best wishes to you all. Kim, Australia
I have several jobs booked without any selling effort. J. Truscott, Scotland
I used to go to bed and read but now I'm never too far from noddy land !!! I'm asleep before you know it!! And that's with just the poster!!! I turned out the lights for my daughter and she just gasped so loud! About 5 minutes later, she said "This is byooootiful". I have already ordered my StarBiz but can hardly wait to get it! Davina in New Zealand
I was there! I saw it with my own eyes... I believe! I flew on an airplane from Minnesota to the Starscapes International Office in Arizona so I could witness STARSCAPES® myself. I wanted to see if it really is everything the website says it is. Well folks... it's BETTER ... it's better than words can describe. It is truly amazing!!! It's unbelievable!!! It's fantastic!!! It's incredible!!! Words can't describe it!!!!
My brother, who is one of the most cautious (and maybe even skeptical) person I know, went with me to the STARSCAPES® International Office. His everyday work title is Operations Manager for Multi-States, Special Investigation Unit, for a very large insurance company overseeing the western half of the United States. He investigates fraud!!! He too, could not believe how incredible, unbelievable and realistic the STARSCAPES® experience was! In fact... he wants STARSCAPES® ceilings done for both of his daughters and the master bedroom!!! M. Franzen S.A.I., Minnesota
Thank you for this opportunity. So far I've only commenced barely four days ago and I've done three jobs Two on promotions charging 100 euros each and the third one 170 euros plus 30 euros tip. L. Shogbamimu S.A.I., Republic of Ireland
I've received you're emails and decided to take the plunge and get the deluxe kit after purchasing the intro kit. I just ran across this surfing on the web for a home-based business that was no pyramid or scam. My husband and I were of course in awe after we saw the demo and being in the area we are in, no one has ever heard of it, well, we got excited. We have a couple rooms already and I am getting a business phone put in tomorrow. Plus a whole other handful of ideas. I basically wanted to thank you and your staff for the lightning fast shipping of the package. I ordered it yesterday at 1pm our time and it was here at 10am the next day. Thanks again. Can't wait to start!! Tracy l. Bier, Illinois
Just a quick note to tell you of my 7-year-old Grandson, who had just stepped outside (around 9:30 p.m.), the other night. He said, "Look (in complete amazement) Grandma Lorry!" His head was tilted upwards and I followed his gaze. There was a great, unobscured view of the night sky, illuminated with MANY beautiful stars...I asked what he wanted me to look at....He replied, "Look, it looks just like the ceilings you paint." What a compliment! What can you say, but, "Out of the mouths of babes!" Thanks again and the tips from you and the other readers makes this so much fun!! L. Velarde, Colorado
I would like to inform that I have done 2 jobs so far and been paid a total of US$667!. I see a very bright future with STARSCAPES®. I thank almighty God for you and your team for creating so many smiles around the world. Keep it up Joe. K. Oile, Kenya
Just wanted to let you lnow I recieved and am very happy with the Delux package. I paint houses for a living and thought I would add STARSCAPES®as another service. Every customer I have shown a sample to has chosen to have one or more ceilings done! I didn't think it would be so easy to sell but it is. Thanks again for turning me on to the stars! W. Kash, North Carolina
I looked you guys up on the Better Business Bureau website you have an EXCELLANT report...tell people to check you guys out with them. I've been checking on companies for 5 years now and this is the only company I've ran across with a perfect report and those guys are tuff!! This won't be the last you hear from me.........you've already got me.........just waitin' on the money. Thanks! Lynn Jones
For your info I have done my first few ceilings, including my first commercial job and they are fantastic. I will be either daft or stupid (or both!) not to make cash out of this business, well done for sharing it in such an innovative way. Chris Roberts, U.K.
My husband and I received our Deluxe Biz package and are very excited. The product is fantastic... I want to first thank Joe and his staff for the wonderful way they treat EVERYONE and for the opportunity given to ANYONE. Secondly, I want to thank all of you who have posted (to the Worldwide STARSCAPES® Email Chat Group). I just spent 8 hours reading and in some cases printing the archives. You have all left me excited and ready to move forward. Your willingness to share your insight and practical tips to help us (newbies) succeed is definitely a blessing. Thank you all for your gift! C. Girault, Oregon
I placed my Amazing STARSCAPES® Demonstration Poster on my floor and practically fell through the floor! B. Carlson, British Columbia
I created a STARSCAPES® Stargazing SkyLite for a customer in their dining room. They later told me that their children wanted to sleep in there! A. Graham, Kentucky
The demo boards we created were nice, but until we saw our first room (bathroom) completed, we weren't too sure about this new opportunity. Needless to say, now we are so excited about this new business! M. Riley, Tennessee
I just painted a room for $1,200.00! That's about $5.75 p/sq. ft. I've been leaving "fliers" on front door knobs and giving "free demos" when they call. I offered a 2 for 1 or 1/2 price special through the month end. This customer didn't make the sale. She paid regular price. D. Schallert, Colorado
My husband says if I wake him up one more time to look at the demo board in the middle of the night, he's going to "kill" me! Anyway... Thanks so much for pointing me in this direction, Joe. We think you're a pretty cool dude. K. Harrison, Virginia
I 'll be painting 100 rooms at a local resort. The owner got real excited when I told him that we'd give him a free STARSCAPES® Stargazing Skylite above each spa in the rooms. The agreement is $200 per room. That should take my wife, daughter and I two weeks to complete. S. Day, Utah
Thanks a Mil, No, I mean thanks a Million Stars...... Got the poster demo a few days ago and I wish you could see the expression on my face right now in an enactment of the tranquil experience---it's a picture worth those Million stars right now---It actually brought tears to my eyes andI was gasping for air. Hubby and I were on our way:::::: out of this world taking those poster stars into our imagination and we both fell fastasleep!! AHHHHHHHHH.... In the next few weeks I will be ordering my KIT and want all the training you can provide!!!! I want to prepare like an athlete prepares for a game. Web and all! I'm just going to live this new adventure and bring joy to those that need it and want it.Keep up the motivational e-mails- ~KIND REGARDS TO YOU AND YOURS. V. Bartosh, California
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
Needless to say, we are very excited about our new business (myself, spouse and daughter). We spent a great deal of time perfecting our technique (although there is always room for improvement), consulting with Joe and gathering a lot of helpful information from this Club. I can see everyone is totally committed to succeeding in this business and I get more excited everytime I turn around and no one has ever heard of it. Talk about a wide-open market!
Everyone I have shown is very interested and I am extremely excited about the business......Thanks! M. Obal, Virginia
I have my first job to do, two rooms 300 sq. feet each in one penthouse for a total of $1200.00. 2 days ago I had deposit 250$. Tomorrow I'm going to do it!!! I. Mazur, Canada
I have been doing this now since September 1999 (three years). Have painted 650-700 jobs at average $400 US. Here are some of the commercial properties I have done. Motel "Don Juan" Monterrey, NL Mexico, Motel Plaza in Escobedo, Motel Plaza in Santa Catarina, Motel Scala in Escobedo, Hotel Antaris suites in Garza Garcia (where some of the presidents of many countries stayed when the United Nation's conference took place here in Monterrey 2 weeks ago.) Also... Spacio Spa in Monterrey, Linda's Theraphy SPA, Extra Time Bar & Grill, Observatory Bar & Pub, and Cervecería Cuahutemoc S.A (brewing company, Monterrey México (brewers of Bohemia beer) H. Melendez, Mexico
I have an agreement with an interior designer/ remodeling outfit to sell my work for $7.50 per sq. ft., and to pay me $5 per sq. ft. And I'm training seven of their salesmen. By the way... I quit my other job! R. Reed, California
I not only go to sleep with stars, I wake up
with a big percentage still twinkling. We advertised
on a billboard for two days, cost abut $80 per day. It read: "Breathtaking by
Night -- Invisible by Day. Thousands of Stars In Any Room!" It generated about
$8,000 worth of business so far, with lots of referrals pouring in. We charge
from $3 to $5 per square foot. Will be building a display booth or buying a used
RV for demonstrations at psychic fairs, and other shows. Gotta fly, have to
create another illusion---good luck to all.
I did a Home Show this past weekend. They held it during a blizzard. Still had over 150 people visit my booth and sold 10 ceilings. Many others were seriously interested. Just imagine what would have happened if the weather had cooperated? I'm really too busy with this STARSCAPES®! I've got too many customers! I may have to quit doing this as I have another business I have to run! Norman S., Iowa
I love the new Super-10 Creation Paint! Our first customer stated that her STARSCAPES® exceeded her wildest dreams! We'll be charging $4 - $5 per square foot, going after the "high-end" market. We love this business opportunity and are really excited about it! R. Read, California
Our 3rd practice ceiling looks incredibly well, just like you said it would! We're painting our first professional job tomorrow evening in a child's room. The size is 170 square feet, and the price is $2 per, making it $340. Part of the deal with the customer is that they would have their friends and neighbors over for the unveiling. J. Sparks, Texas
Anyway, been in since April
2, 2002. Have booked our first job for this Thursday, 4/25; charged $662 for one
bedroom and doing the other for FREE (2 for 1 deal). The customer has also asked
us to give them an estimate for doing their Master BR. We are doing two
skylite's for a house next week (charged $300 as they are getting one FREE) and
have a bathroom and skylite booked also for next week ($500).
My point for this posting is that the market is virtually "untapped" and that you charge whatever the market will bear. We are a family of non- artists and do not particularly like to market anything. But, this is our business and every night when I go to bed and stare at my ceiling, I just get that more excited. We know that we have finally found a home business that is going to change our lives.
Anyway, we wish all of our fellow STARSCAPES® only the best. I supplied our first customer with the Letter-Pak and they are quite happy to refer us to at least (5) other people. Incidentally, I told them if they were willing to do that we would put (3) shooting stars in each of the two BR's. So, it looks like we are off and running!
On a more personal note: All three of us want to thank you, Joe. You have been such a help and inspiration to each of us. You provided us with a vehicle to get where we want to go. From what we have seen, so far, the road has not been heavily traveled and appears to be wide open for us to drive ourselves to a much better financial position. For that, we will always be grateful! Steve Day, UtahJust a short note to let you know that we needed two more computers in the office, networked together, and another computer to be fixed, here at Starscapes International. Hearing about what we do... The computer service repair man wanted STARSCAPES® in his 12' x 12' bedroom, so guess what happened? Need I tell you? I think it was a fair trade! Oh, and by the way... last summer I traded two bedroom ceilings to have the exterior of my 3,000 square foot house painted! And the painter KNOWS that he got the better end of the deal! Joe Petrashek, Starscapes International
I have been doing STARSCAPES® for a couple of years now. I work it full time with another business I am doing. It's like Joe says. It sells itself! People see it and they want it. It really is easy to do! My other business I do is personalized computer printouts. I believe you should diversify (have a variety) of things to offer your customers. I also double my chances of selling my products or services. It is not uncommon for me to sell both of my offerings to the same customer. I do the computer printouts because I enjoy doing them. There is no doubt in my mind that if I did just the STARSCAPES® I would do very well!
At this time I have a waiting list of customers who want the STARSCAPES ® . I do not have to advertise it. I get 80% of my sales by word of mouth. I live in a town of about 12,000 people so size of your town is not a factor. I would say if you want a home business that is fun, easy to do, in great demand, and offers you a chance to be independent, than STARSCAPES ® is for you. Joe is a good guy. He will answer any questions you have and is always a phone call away. I have a Home Show here at the mall in March. It is my first one. I have a lot of people already who told me they are coming to my booth and bringing a friend.
To be honest with you I may have to give up my other business to meet the demand. I am always happy to share my ideas and marketing strategies with my fellow Starscapers. In case you are wondering, I am writing this on my own. I was not hired by anyone to say anything. I just decided to pay a visit to the site that got me started. I was a dreamer just like many of you. I decided to act on my dream and I have never looked back. Good luck to you all. Norman S., IOWA, USA (My gosh, Norman! I got all choked up reading that. You can't begin to imagine how wonderful all these kind words everyone sends us makes my staff and I feel. I ask The Man every night to bless this business and I've not been let down. Thank you. -Joe)
Joe, I just wanted to say, "This is awesome!" Got my package three days ago and have watched the video three times and read the owners manual four times. I am pretty saturated with the STARSCAPES® manual. My brother-in-law and I did my bathroom ceiling and purposely went alot overboard. It looks good. We also did his bedroom ceiling, and that turned out better. We will be doing my bedroom ceiling today for the 3rd is a charm creation. Will let you know how it goes. Keep it up Joe. B. Kindrick, Oklahoma
Thank you for your demonstration and attention this afternoon at the showroom. To say it mildly, we were both very impressed. We talked about it all the way back home and when I arrived at home it was an easy sell to my wife. I look forward to receiving the StarBiz package and learning how to do this process for making money at my own speed. E. Zambrano, Utah
While everyone must do their own due diligence. Here is what I can tell you. I have been working with Joe Petrashek (he *is* STARSCAPES ® ) since I started NOBOSS in 1995 and have sent him hundreds and hundreds of inquiries. I've never had one adverse feedback in all the years. In my own dealings with Joe, I've developed a respect for him as an entrepreneur and a businessman-of-integrity. If I were not totally committed and involved with NOBOSS... and the basic business of being an online publisher... there are two home-based biz-opps I'd be personally exploring (there are easily many many more that I believe are viable... but there are two that would intrigue me personally and that I'd not hesitate to try myself. One is vending machines. The other is STARSCAPES®. Dan Schwartz, publisher NOBOSS.COM National Organization of Business Opportunity Seekers
My name is Gary and I'm one of the newest artist-illusionists to come on board. Got my deluxe kit about 2 weeks ago. I've done 5 jobs (one for pay). As a newbie I can't add much except to say that the first room I did was my own. The effect is great, but I thought the main stars a little too big. I did my older sons room next. Got the proportions much better and more realistic looking, to my eye. However, my first sale came from a friend of my son who saw my room and ordered immediately. When I finished my sons room, I had my soon to be paying customer look at it to tell me which sizing he liked best. He chose my room. Several of his other friends agree. I have one more paying order scheduled and he wants the larger size. I've decided to offer the 'view from space' and the 'view from earth'. If my customers want the more dramatic larger size I will give them what they want. One more thing... I was away from my home for the Thanksgiving holiday. I found I missed my view of the stars each night when I went to bed. This is one fantastic and innovative opportunity. G. Lewis - Texas
I just did my first "real" paying job. It really looked like you were in space! This was a surprise for a ladies boyfriend, tomorrow is his birthday. Just the night before he told her he wanted to get about a thousand of those glow in the dark stick-up stars! When I was done I brought her in and had her lay on the bed and when she opened her eyes, she just gasped! I originally told her a price of $149, and when she was paying me she handed me two bills, which I thought was a $100 and a $50, and she said to keep the change and I looked down and it was 2 $100 bills!!! Then she made the comment that I should charge "MORE"!!! Needless to say, I'm excited!!! I figure if I can get just 3 jobs a week, I can replace my income from my job! Well, I don't think it will be all that hard now! I do my next job on Sunday! Wish me luck! Thanks Joe! L. Schroeder, Kansas
Thank YOU!!! He absolutely LOVED it. I went ahead and covered up both windows with black garbage bags for the "full" effect and had left the lights on until he got home at 3:30am. When he got home, I blindfolded him and led him to the bedroom where I had him lay down while I turned off all the lights. I lied down next to him and unblindfolded him. His reaction was, "OOOOOOOOOOOO COOOOOOOOL". He got so lost in those stars! He found it incredibly amazing. Now I don't know if it was the cigarette smoke or what, LOL, but those stars shimmer. Joey thought I actually took dental floss and hung all those stars from the ceiling until I turned the light on and he goes, "Hey, where'd they go?" (From a lady that surprised her boyfriend with STARSCAPES ®!)
Hi, Joe! I'm so excited! My package came this weekend and I just painted all the bedrooms in the house, and my 5 year old daughter is going crazy about STARSCAPES® ! My wife even loves it! All the people that we've shown it to, want it. I did the Lost in Space Fantasy theme in my room, because I figured that I'll need the practice. I read your materials, the business manual, and watched the video tape, and you said it would be fun. Well, I took that with a "grain of salt". I did... I really had fun! I've got so many promotional ideas, I can barely contain myself. David L., Ontario, Canada
I just got my demo poster yesterday and it is totally awesome. Me and the kids love it. Donna H.
Joe, I just wanted to thank you for this chance to make easy money! Everything you said came true! I practiced in two rooms in my home, and then did a co-workers son's room. No sooner did I turn the lights out, all I heard was 'I want this in my room'! I sold three more rooms in less than five minutes! I am a true believer in your product and your business offer, it really does work. My next job is for a school and I can't wait to hear the oohs and aahs when I unveil my creation! Once again Joe, thanks, for helping me reach for the stars,and, catching them! Mark N., South Carolina
Your product is brilliant - literally. Patrick N., South Africa
Look I have been doing this for 2 years, but in fact I have been doing this full time for the last 12 months, in this time I have painted about 350 STARSCAPES® and I still feel the same feeling I had when I painted My own room for a first time, (even when it was a mess). I have meet many people who I painted a STARSCAPES® for, some of them are rich some of them not that much,some others poor, but all of them have something in common: They say WOW!!!!! until their jaws falls to the floor. I have heard them when I am at the supermarket or a gas station, -hey look honey, that is the starsman, and they come to say hi, and thanks for the STARSCAPES® and start to talk about many things. This is the best reward an artist can have, plus, of course, the monetary reward. Thats why I am still very excited about this. Remember: A marathon starts with the first step. You've already done that. Keep reaching for the stars!! Your friend, Humberto M., Mexico
I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to be able to do business with you! I see an ending in my life -- an ending of abject poverty, struggle, and financial limitation. But since this has been all I've known, I can hardly imagine the ease and freedom of my new life. I see this as a valuable skill that will support me and give me freedom. Cariner M., Victoria, B.C.
This sounds like a wonderful opportunity. My adult son just had a ceiling done in his home and loves it !! Bob & Carol B.
I just did my first two practice rooms in my apartment and wow it looks really great especially the second bedroom I did. I have started to place some lawn signs for advertising I own apartments in Salt Lake City Utah, and hope to some business out them. You really have a great opportunity here and its something anyone can do. I was kinda of skeptical when I first started out yesterday but today I believe I have found something I enjoy doing, and I can do it =0) Anyway you will be hearing from me often, I need to call and order some more paint. Thanks a million Joe Matthew F., Utah
Just got your package. What an amazing system! I currently paint murals and this is the most incredible thing I've seen. Everybody just flipped over the Amazing Demo Poster! And I'm honored to actually be talking to you! S. Smith, Florida
STARSCAPES ® in all the guests bedrooms and waited for the
comments! Well! They loved it!! We would recommend STARSCAPES
® to all Hotel, motel or Guest house! Just watch the faces of the
customers when they see the effect!!!
Joe, got our package
yesterday, made the sample poster and was blown away with the look. Gonna do our
daugthers ceiling this week end.. maybe just a portal but really think this is
great stuff. You may notice from my signature that I am a realtor now and will
continue with that.. but have some lean times now and then so need some
supplemental income. Looking forward to getting started.
I just booked my first job! I'm so excited! I took my new demonstration poster to work with me, showed a friend, and he wants it in his bedroom, his living room, and his den. He also asked me if he could borrow the poster to show his friends. Of course I said YEAH! C.Khelfa, Virginia
I made over $7,000 US last month! E. Morales, Guatemala
I just completed one job in a 12' x 14' room and it took me 33 minutes. J. Petrashek, Arizona
I've just completed my 1st job! They paid me ELEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS! It was a dining room, bathroom and a 5' diameter STARSCAPES® Stargazing Skylite! Now I'm going to raise my price of $2 per square foot! P. Gooding, Ontario
Wow, this is the most amazing program I have ever seen. D. Carney
Just received my package... It's awesome! I'm surprised I got it so fast! Can't wait to get started! K. Modder, Florida
Joe, I've just finished sculpting my fourth
ceiling. It turned out fantastic. It was my daughter Katie's room and she just
loves it. My third job was our patio which is 15 by 30 and that one came out
great also. I used Creation 3 on the patio and 10 on Katie's room which, is the
first time I've used it. It looks great. I'm going to do our bedroom next and
I'll do my son's room when he gets back home later this summer as he wants to
have input on it. I'm working on getting a couple of jobs and hope to being
doing them within the next couple of weeks. You were right about doing a couple
of practice jobs first which I did in two
I practiced on our bathroom today, my wife and I spent the last half an hour lying on the bathroom floor, absolutely amazing!!! It really does look like you're lying under the stars, you don't really believe it until you see it. K. Lewis, United Kingdom
Joe, thanks for allowing me to visit your
showroom. It's incredible. I was in Las Vegas for my wife's business conference
and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to come see your showroom in Phoenix.
I've only done one practice room myself, and although I didn't do to many things
correctly, it still turned out pretty impressive. I showed my two kids, Derek
and Katie, the room when they got home from school, and they thought it was the
coolest thing on Earth. Of course they went and gathered up all there friends.
Now they all want one on their ceiling too! Your STARSCAPES®
showroom is GREAT! Thanks for all the neat ideas and tips. I also got to meet
Linda and put a face to her voice. What a sweetheart she is. You two were great
hosts! Thanks a million! P.S: If you're ever in Florida, stop by and look us up.
Dear Joe, Thank you for all the info. Bravo!!!
I think your product and info and website are top notch. I have been researching
and trying home-based businesses for a few years now and most are failures
filled w/deceptions. Then I saw STARSCAPES® . I
could really sink my teeth into this one. Unfortunately for me, I am so strapped
for cash, I just can't come up w/the money for this wonderful business. I'm in a
catch-22 position. I really need a home-based business to get out of debt, yet I
can't get the money from any other resource. I really don't know what to do. I'm
not trying to burden you w/this, I'm just venting my utter frustration. I'm
praying GOD will lead me in the right direction in getting this money for your
business. As soon as I get the money I will definitely purchase. GOD bless you.
I am doing about one a week now. Slowly getting into it. I really enjoy doing it! The people I have done, really love it. Mostly word of mouth so for until I get really good at it. L. Papp, Ontario
Hello Joe, Tonight was a great night ! I have seen your Video. It was nice to see you and hear your voice. Of course it was helpful to see how it really works. We are exciting about the result. I can smell the $$ coming as well as the fun to do it. P. Jonveaux, France
...I went right to work on my own ceiling... and the most incredible STARSCAPES® mural quickly began to show up on my ceiling. I felt as though I had been doing this for years. It's BEAUTIFUL! Even my skeptical husband loves it! L. Ross, Pennsylvania (Lisa, your full story is in the "chat" archives. It's wonderful! -Joe )
On my last job they just laid there and said about 20 times, "This is awesome! I can't believe it!" Without exception... Everyone always says "Wow"! Joe, I'm having the time of my life with this! Thanks! L. Watts, California
Joe, I wanted to thank you for taking the time to answer my questions today. I also wanted to tell you how excited we are about STARSCAPES®... this is truly as awesome as you said it would be!!! And customer service.... WOW! The first room we painted was the bathroom (as you suggested) and when our 4-year-old grandson first saw it, we couldn't get him out! He stood on a stool so he could reach the light switch and kept turning the lights on and off so he could see the stars, shooting stars, and milky way. He couldn't wait to get them in his own bedroom --- but then, neither could I. We are definitely sold on STARSCAPES® . I think our feelings are best summed up with the same words that we hear every time we show off our own STARSCAPES® . "Oh WOW, this is awesome!" Thanks again, we are looking forward to a long and profitable association with you and STARSCAPES® . D. & K. Woolery, Missouri
When I contracted with Joe to decorate my son's room, I based this decision on one of his advertisements in a local newspaper. His professionalism and eagerness to demonstrate his artistic abilities had me excited to see the end results. With a lot of expectations, I waited for Joe to finish his work. Finally, he opened the door, and with an artistic humbleness, Joe prepared me to see the work with a few minutes of well-rehearsed meditations. When the lights went out, my breath escaped me as I beheld the universe before me in my son's bedroom. I can't wait until we can do more... Matt Rigberg, Arizona
I did my first painting for my sisters kids and they freaked out! R. Provance, Missouri
Thank you, Joe, for the marvelous STARSCAPES® that you did at our spa. It is much enjoyed and appreciated. I hope you will drop in sometime to take a "dip". C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.
Would you like to know someone who is famous and has STARSCAPES®? I painted today four Room Expansion Fantasies and one Original STARSCAPES ® ceiling mural (in a home theatre) for a Mexican national soccer team player in his home, his name is Claudio Suarez. Humberto Melendez, Mexico
Boy, I really didn't think I
could do it, but I did! What a satisfying feeling knowing I can really do it.
The Milky Way came out beautiful! I did it just as Joe taught on the tape. The
owner loved it, so did his neighbor. He wants me to come back and do a ROOM
EXPANSION fantasy in the same room! I am now very excited and enthusiastic about
STARSCAPES® because I now know I CAN do this! Making people
happy and making good money... what more can you ask for?
Joe: Believe it or not, we
finally got our first order for a room, it's from a massage therapist. She will
refer us to her neighbors and customers, and there was no haggling about the
price of $895.00. 1/2 down and the balance upon completion. We just saw her
tonight and it looks like we'll start Sunday morning. Dan is really excited and
wants his own STARSCAPES ® jacket. We appreciate the
help. Mighty good wages if you ask me!
I'm Nancee Malone and I just recently purchased the Starbiz package. I painted my son's room and it looks great! He showed his friends and they are still talking about it. They want me to do their rooms now. :-) N. Malone, Iowa

I am so excited about painting ceilings that I am willing to paint several free for promotion and referrals. C. Windish, Florida
I have very GOOD NEWS!!! Next week ( Monday Dec. 18th) I am going to paint a STARSCAPES® at the "HOTEL TAPATIO" presidential suite, here in Guadalajara, and I will paint another one at the the hotel's owner daughter home! ...but things are coming out even better!!!... I already have booked another job for next Tuesday (Dec. 19th), can you believe that?... This is great, just like you said! J. Flores, Guadalajara, Mexico
When I received my STARSCAPES® Starbiz package, to be honest, I was a little disappointed at the beginning because everything looked so simple, but when I finished my first room, I was completely astonished and last night when I finished my second test room, I couldn't believe my eyes. It was hard to believe that I had done it with such simple techniques and tools... just incredible. L. Aponte, Venezuela
I received my STARSCAPES® package yesterday and painted my first room last night. Went rather well, other than a few "too-large" stars : ) I'll keep you posted on my progress. A. Hague, Utah (We're looking forward to your posts, Allison!)
Last month I painted my 100th
STARSCAPES®, it may not sound spectacular for some of you ,
but I painted 3 or 4 special STARSCAPES®:
I just returned from a weeklong pleasure trip of about 1600 miles. I made the trip in my work van and how do you suppose I paid for the trip? That's right!!! I left stardust wherever I went. I started by showing someone the demo poster and it snowballed from there. I had to make sure that I didn't overbook as I only had a week. The only advertising was by word-of-mouth. It was great fun, and I have people that want me to come back and do their ceilings. I have never seen a business as great as this one. Remember: The sky is the limit. C. Williams, New Mexico
Hello Joe and STARSCAPES® staff. I believe in STARSCAPES®! I made my demo poster last night and I was amazed! Showed my family and we all started stargazing! I am going to do this soon! N. Alexander, California
Our STARSCAPES® Deluxe package arrived and are we ever excited! Our bathroom was the first room to receive the "treatment". Results, could have been better but that was our first try. The second room, our daycare play room, was better. But, our guest room came out great! And just in time for company that will be arriving from Kenya on Friday, October 20, 2000. Are they in for a treat. They will be sleeping under the stars and even the Milky Way is visible! This is a wonderful business venture! We are almost ready to hit the streets! Thanks for such an awesome opportunity, Joe. We will stop in some time to meet you in person. D. & L. LaCelle, Idaho (Come and see us anytime, D & L!)
I have been with STARSCAPES® for 4 months now. I just love it. I am seriously considering quitting my job and doing STARSCAPES® full time! It is the most fun I have ever had. It is a service that sells itself, people love it, and is quite easy to do. With STARSCAPES® you are only limited by your own imagination. No ceilings are exactly alike, and you can't make a mistake. I have done several ceilings. I charge $179.00 per ceiling and I have a people on a waiting list because I do not have enough time in the day to do them all. Joe is great! Whenever I have a question I call him directly and get fast answers. I will be doing STARSCAPES® full-time very soon and I am never going to look back. My future is before me. Thank you STARSCAPES®! Norman S., Iowa (It looks like you're doing everything right, Norm!)
We completed our first job today and it went very well, we have 4 more scheduled for early next week @ $200 a pop. We are very pleased to say the least Your description of the response when people see the work is exactly what you told us it would be . The first viewing of the work we did in our own home resulted in five bookings... and they all said the same thing... we want one, when can you come over? My hats off to you Joe! D. and L., Alberta, Canada. (My hats off to YOU, D & L!)
Hi Joseph! Guess what! I am getting (building) a house, that's the bad news! :) The good news is I have a deal with the HOME BUILDERS to do STARSCAPES® for all the other people who would like that in there new homes!!!!!! They loved the presentation I did, and they want it for there homes!!! I knew this would work!!! I have the presentation area all set up! Its in their open house!!! God Bless You!! H. Barnett, Oklahoma (Thanks so much, Hans!)
I am writing this letter to express my gratitude and respect for all at Starscapes International. I have had the experience to witness first hand your honesty and integrity, which we all know is rare these days. Being based in Australia I was at first skeptical at the service I might receive being so far away, however I must say I have had all my queries answered promptly and politely within 24 hours, my STARSCAPES ® package arrived in perfect condition, as did my Galactification machine. I happily recommend the STARSCAPES® package and Starscapes/Voyager Industries for anybody who is serious about starting their own business and are looking for an honest company to assist them in their journey. M. Booth, Australia
I did a STARSCAPES® "Lost in Space Fantasy" for a friend and neighbor of mine, who also is a realtor. She knows a great many people, and of course has many new contacts. This is absolutely the best painting I have done yet, and it is really something to see. When I was ready to show her the finished product, I asked her to lay on the bed, and I had the bright overhead light on. I told her to keep her eyes shut, but not to tightly, until I said it was ok to open them. I turned off the light and waited 10 or 20 seconds, and said ok. All you could hear was a slight gasp coming from the bed! Then there was the "Oh my God, this is fantastic!" I got a $65.00 tip out of this one! All for now, I thought that I would share with you! B. McIntyre, Washington
I was newly divorced when I started with STARSCAPES®. My wife got everything. Boat, travel trailer, house. I got my three daughters and the clothes on our backs. Currently, I live with my parents. I had $188 dollars in my pocket of which I placed an add in my local newspaper for $187. One week later, I had over $3,000 in my pocket. I have done 15 jobs in the last 7 days. (2 per day with 3 on Tuesday.) I charge for a 12 x 12 room, 1,999 pesos which is US$210. Most of my customers want the entire ceiling and walls done. My average job is $250. I have 5 more jobs booked this week, 2 of which were from referrals. I would like to be the National Distributor for Mexico. STARSCAPES® is the best job I have ever had. It is relaxing. I listen to my favorite '70's music while I work. Mr. Petrashek does not exaggerate one bit about STARSCAPES® . I love it! People that see it, just say WOW! Kids that see it cry because they want it too. H. Melendez, Monterey, Mexico (Update: Humberto received $800 for a one room job! Great going, Humberto! You're a shooting star!). (Latest update: Average job increased to $350. Doing 1,2, or 3 jobs a day. Foreseeable 1st year cash earnings of $132,000-$245,000. That's over a million dollars in about 4-7 years.)
WOW ! you guys are the greatest! Jeanne saw her
name up on our web page and was ecstatic. Thanks again for all of your help. You
are truly a good company to be associated with. Have a GREAT DAY!!!
We have had the privilege of having this done in a very special room and it is unbelievable how real it seems! It is both calming and exhilarating at the same time. This is a great invention! B. Carter, Nevada
The video is GREAT!!!! Well done! Thanks! I get the feeling I will be part of a great team! K. Carey, Australia
Dear Joe and Jill,
Gayle and I can't thank you enough for the tour of the showroom. We didn't know what to expect when we arrived. Your friendliness, openness, and enthusiasm sure made an impression on a couple of "shell shocked Internet survivors". In the last three years I have tried every scheme and scam the Internet has to offer.
The real reason that we came to visit the showroom in person was that Gayle simply was not about to let me take another "flyer"-----without some adult supervision----HERS. Did you notice that she had her back up when we walked in? Did you also notice that her back relaxed about the same time her jaw dropped when she saw the ceiling in the showroom?? I was a believer before we arrived-----but I'm easy. You and Jill did such a great job of answering all of our questions! By the time we left, Gayle was "seeing stars"---EVERYWHERE! Our home office will soon be changed into our own STARSCAPES® SHOWROOM. Nobody yet has asked for my advice, but here it is anyhow: If you are even considering "stars" in your future: Walk, fly, drive, crawl if you have to, but somehow get to Phoenix. Spend an hour as we did with Joe, and Jill. If you can then decide that the STARSCAPES® BUSINESS isn't for you at this time-----you will at least want to hire one of the rest of us to add STARSCAPES® to your own house. All the best, F. and G. Hoffman (We can't wait to see you again!)
I just want to tell you that I have received the package, gone through the manual, tried out the demo, and watched the video. It was really fun and exciting experience! J. Kitnithee, Thailand
This is a dream come true for me. J. Lee, New Jersey
Joe, thanks for your wonderful opportunity to help myself as well as others!! L. Finnell, Texas
I'm unhappy working my butt off for someone else to make all the money. So I'm seeking Liberation, Freedom, and Independence from Corporate Slavery. Finding the right product to sell has always been the Big Thing with me, if I don't like it no one else will either! I love the idea and concepts behind STARSCAPES®, that's what will make it a breeze to sell! I have shown the Demo Poster to friends and have 2 jobs pending. Thanks again Joe, I look forward to a long and profitable business relationship with you. L. Slay, Texas
I was finally able to do 3 ceilings, in my home. And my bathroom ceiling is now incredibly beautiful! I still had trouble with the milky way, but now I have it down pat! My only problem now is deciding which of the other two rooms to sleep in at night! Each one is different, but beautiful in its own way, and the problem is that if I am sleeping in one, I am missing the other! Last night I watched in one room until it faded away, and then went and watched in the other room, until I fell asleep! What a wonderful, peaceful, healing way to go to sleep at night! Finally, after three ceilings, I feel confident to go out and do STARSCAPES® for other people! That is the scary and hard part.... actually doing the STARSCAPES® is fun! I also want to say that even if I never did STARSCAPES® for money, just being able to do it for my own enjoyment would make it worth so much more than I paid for it! A. Suthers, California
Your training video is one of the best I have ever seen! The slow, careful way in which you explain and demonstrate everything makes doing STARSCAPES® easy and fun! I especially liked the close-ups of what you were doing..... and all the tips you gave from your personal experience brought me right up to where I needed to be to feel confident doing my very firstSTARSCAPES® ! A. Suthers, California
FANTASTIC package... Thank you!! Galactified!!!!!! S. Daugherty, California
Everyone loves it! I already have 3 jobs booked at $159 each, and have 4 pending. I'm really enjoying this! I have done 3 ceilings and they all look great! I am very excited about the possibilities that STARSCAPES® has given me. I have tried many business opportunities and have been ripped off by ALL of them or they have not lived up to what they had promised. I am VERY excited about STARSCAPES® and truly believe that it offers me a chance to make money. All I have to do is work at it a little bit. It offers a great product that people want. It's original, and it's fun to do! It sells itself and the potential for word of mouth advertising and referral customers is almost a gaurantee. I have NO doubt that once I get this thing going I am going to have more customers than I will know what to do with. Thank you Joe! Norman S., Iowa
We have our first 4 jobs to do today. Thank you for all the e-mails you send. They have some great ideas in them! You do have great customer service! D. McGregor in Nova Scotia.
Thanks for your prompt attention and the
package is great.
Just a tidbit of info I thought might interest you. We operate a computer retail store and thought STARSCAPES® would be an interesting and unique sideline for us. Two days ago we ran a full frontpage ad in our local "shopper paper". Half of the page was for our computer systems and the other half we dedicated to STARSCAPES®. In the past two days, we've scheduled six STARSCAPES® jobs and an equal number of in-home demos, but sold only two computers. I wonder how long it will be before computers are our sideline? Bravo STARSCAPES®! K. Binning, Iowa
I looked at the poster put up on the bathroom wall.... the stars were so bright, they shimmered as if alive! I added a milkyway to it. The effect is gorgeous! It's stunning! I put the poster on the bedroom wall last night just so I could go to sleep watching it! Thanks for all your help! A. Suthers, California
Just thought I'd drop you a quick note and let you know that my package arrived. I've been busy learning the techniques. I have now completed my guest bathroom, guest bedroom, and my bedroom and I've learned quite a bit about the process. I've done several shooting stars and I put the milky way up in my bedroom as well. I encountered a few problems and made a few mistakes but still the ceilings turned out great. My bedroom ceiling, being the last one I did, turned out best of all. Even with mistakes, the ceilings are beautiful. It's difficult to do a bad STARSCAPES® . I love the illusions I've created! I can't wait to start marketing this and bringing it to the public. I'm looking forward to a long and prosperous future with STARSCAPES®. J. Nelson, Washington
Worth every penny! J. & J. Teron, Canada
I Love this business! It's me! R. Armstrong, Indiana
I made myself impressed the other day, by the result of the application in my son's room! I did put lots of stars, 10 foot milky way which is stunning, and 3 shooting stars, all according to your instruction. K. Choi, Maryland
Joe, it's just like you said. People see it... they want it! Every time I show it, I hear, "Oh, my God! When can you do mine?!". And I love doing STARSCAPES® . To me... it's not work. I enjoy it! D. Iacomacci, Utah
The sun is out; the air is crisp and clear and
thanks to this opportunity, life feels really good this
I don't know how to thank you for this wonderful opportunity! I will be forever indebted to you! Thank you again! You have made me the happiest that I have been in a very very long time. I know that GOD will always be watching over you for this. Again thank you ever so much. J. Barton, Indiana
I showed them, and all the skeptics just said "WOW!". D. Boivin, Massachusetts
The material is VERY professionally organized and it looks marvelous. Harry D. Schultz, editor of The Harry Schultz Letter. (The world's most expensive financial consultant -- Guiness Book of World Records).

becoming your community's next Michelangelo! If you're looking for something
unusual and fun to build a business in - this is as fun as it gets!
A complete money-making business package. An opportunity, and it appears to be a solid one, concerns itself with STARSCAPES® ILLUSION MURALS that can turn the ceiling of any bedroom into a celestial wonder. One can gaze up at an accurate three-dimensional life-like painting of the evening sky, with thousands of stars, constellations, and even the Milky Way. The comprehensive manual shows you exactly how it's done, and how you can make up to $100 an hour with this unique business opportunity. This brief review can not do justice in describing this unique money-making plan. This opportunity has great merit. Russ von Hoelscher, columnist and publisher of Insiders Money-Making Report
It's a complete business package - and a good one. The instruction manual shows exactly how it's done. The instructions are easy to follow. The manual is impressive, and I have no doubt that anyone who gives it a chance an make good money with it. (Even if you just earned $50 per hour)...this would be a worthwhile part-time venture. Stew Caverly, nationwide publisher and newspaper/magazine columnist
To say the least I was very impressed (with materials)! I couldn't wait to try out the Amazing Demo Poster. Then, when I took my finished painting in a dark room, I was shocked and awed. I'd gladly pay $100 for someone to do it for me. Victoria Ring, president Graphico publishing, The Grapevine Journal, The 'Good People' Book
I just received my package on Friday. I completed my closet, my daughter's room, and our room. I have three jobs set for the end of this week. I will not charge for these jobs so that I can get some customers other than myself and get the word out. I know it will go great. It is so easy and so realistic. I had been looking for an opportunity that I could realistically do and make some extra money. My wife and I just had our second child and we were looking for a way for her to stay home and take care of our children. We think we just found it. Thanks for the opportunity to try and make it a reality. Johnny R., Texas
I simply feel that my dreams will really come true with STARSCAPES®. Joseph Cheung, China
I just wanted to tell you how impressed my
husband and I are with your program. It is everything you said it is and more.
Boy, talk about having the world at your feet! We are so excited. God Bless You!
I am certainly impressed with your polite marketing skills, and though persistant, not obtrusive. Russ
Thanks for the opportunity!. Marilyn Graff
So far I have done 10 homes. Everything is going fine. Once again, thank u sir for teaching me this business. A. Hussain, India
Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling? D. Lockett
I got my demo poster and it is truly
"awesome!"....the whole family loves it. There is no doubt that this is the
business opportunity I've waited for.
Your business was a Godsend, and I'm so pleased that I found it online. I had been looking online for a business to do and after weeks of looking was tired and beat and about to give up when I stumbled onto your site. You have to feel good knowing that you have helped so many people achieve personal satisfaction and freedom from the hum-drum of day to day life. Thank you for giving me my life back and letting me control my destiny. May God bless you. S. Moore
About six months went by and my employer was beginning to lay people off. I didn't know if I would be one of them or not so I figured that I had better prepare myself just in case I was. So I broke out the STARSCAPES® paint and painted my kids bedroom, UNBELIEVABLE! Everyone was excited. I showed it to a couple of friends and they hired me to do theirs and the referrals are now rolling in. I started at just $50 a ceiling, but have now upped the price to $100 a ceiling. I apologize for doubting the idea and the process. I look forward to a long and prosperous business relationship with STARSCAPES®. Sincerely, J. Phillips
About STARSCAPES® ... all I can say about it is WOW!!!!!! I received the demo poster yesterday, tried looking at it during the day and was disappointed. However, I thought, "I'll wait until tonight". I just couldn't believe how fantastic it looked! I must have re-energised it 20 times just to keep looking at it. It really is absolutely amazing! My mother and my fiancee both think it looks great too. I'm looking forward to painting the whole ceiling as even though the demo poster looks fantastic... you can't quite get the whole feel of it with just the poster. I know however that once the ceiling is painted it's going to be amazing. I've already lined up my fiancee's daughter to do her room first ... she's going to have a whole bunch of friends over to see it once it's completed. S. Rykmans, Australia
I got my demo poster and it is truly "awesome!"....the whole family loves it ...there is no doubt that this is the opportunity I've waited for. J. Owens
Have received demo poster today and were blown
away. Very impressive will order soon!
I had an exciting conversation with the organizer of our city's Home and Garden annual show. He said that there were no spots left available. When I explained to him what the "product" was, he responded, "I think that would go over great at our show. I'll try to make some room"!!! K. Weber
I got the STARSCAPES® poster you sent me the other day and I think it looks great. I taped it to the ceiling above my bed. It really does look like I have a hole in my ceiling. I think it's awesome! I'm definitely considering buying the package for myself first, then to sell to others. E. Rosario, Montana
I have received my package and reviewed the material contained therein and am even more excited than I was previously. H. Abdallah, Qatar
After doing a couple really nice
Starscapes® in nice neighborhoods, I can see where I can
earn what is a weeks wages for some people on a single Saturday evening, and
have a great time doing it!
I appreciate your help and I am almost ready for my first job. It is so exciting for me and my family. Thank you so much for the opportunity to be my own boss. C. Hynes, Michigan
I completed my first STARSCAPES®
(on someone else's ceiling!) this past Sunday. You were
Received the Super-10 Blue Creation Paint
yesterday. It's FANTASTIC!!! You are a genius!!! You never cease to amaze me
with your ideas and products. I'll order the Violet paint next week.
Joe, I recieved my Battle in Space stencil set. There pretty awesome! J. Mokate, California
Im doing great... Just about ready to have this
meeting with my first JOB. I'm so excited! Yes!!!
Thank you for sending me StarBiz Startup Package. It is beautiful. A. Hassan, India
I have not received the start -up kit yet and I already have 10 appointment, 2 booked jobs and a 5 million people to visit. H. Melendez, Mexico
I am extremely excited about this opportunity. I am an amateur astronomer and I have taught chemistry,physics, astronomy, and biology as well as calculus on the collegiate level. Thanks for everything. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you. God Bless you all. K. Fisher, Virginia
I received my order in good order and am impressed with everything I received. I am more than happy with this Business Opportunity. I am really excited about this business and am sure it is going to be a big success here in my home town. I have done one ceiling in my house, and I must say... it looks good. So real, and the end result is just magnificent - really relaxing. My grandchild, she and her mother stay with us, is so impressed she just wanted to phone all her mates to come and have a look. She is going to make money out of her granddad. I have already got 5 orders that I will do in the next two weeks. I just want to do two more in my house and then I will be ready for the big ones. The Satin Jacket is "r-e-a-l c-o-o-l". I am really satisfied. I want to thank you for this opportunity that you are giving away. God Bless You and your Business. I. Kemp, South Africa
We completed a job Sat for the mother of a 17
year old girl...she had her room "starscaped" as a
After seeing the STARSCAPES®
Demo Board, the State Fair Officials told us that we were going to get the best
spot in the fair! I replied, "But how can you do that, when you're all booked
up"? "We'll boot somebody out! Your STARSCAPES® will
be the hottest thing here"!
I just wanted to take a few minutes mention here that Joe's Paint is the BEST IN THE WORLD!! I left Starscapes last summer because I was moving and didn't think I'd have room in my new place to do my canvas murals. As I got settled, I found I could make the room with a few adjustments to the new place...a bit cramped but do-able. I wasn't sure I would be able to come back once I left Starscapes, so I started looking for glow in the dark paint. I bought so many kinds I don't even want to think about it and spent more money than my license membership dues would have cost for a year or more!! I was not only disappointed, I was down right disgusted with the 'quality' of glow paint out there. I went EVERYWHERE online that listed glow in the dark paint. I think I must have tried every available glow paint sold commercially that there is in the WORLD and it was NOT EVEN CLOSE to our paint in quality, consistency and/or glow time & brightness.
NONE of those paints were as invisible by day as Joe's Creation Paint!!! Besides that, I can no longer even see one of the sample stars AT NIGHT that I put on my bathroom wall with the glow in the dark paint I got from one of the popular glow in the dark paint sites online claiming to have the BEST!!! All the stars I have painted in years past using Joe's Creation Paint still glow as bright as they did the first day I painted them.
There is absolutely NO COMPARISON between the Glacier Blue and any other aqua color in the world that I had access to buying! Some places that sold the paint even tried to get me to join their artist group, but I wasn't interested (especially after I tried their paint!!). Some of the groups were allowed to even sell the paint they used if they were members. I am really GLAD that we can't or don't do that!! (I hope that continues). It makes OUR exclusiveness much more attractive :))
I quickly found that being a Starscapes Artist/Illusionist was truly an Honor and a Privilege only Starscapes & Joe can provide! So, I put my tail between my legs and called Joe again asking him if I could join Starscapes and renew my license. [BTW, Joe always answers his phone to answer my questions. I'm sure that's an exclusive only Starscapes provides too!]. So, my point here is this: Joe's Paint is the BEST IN THE WORLD and I am truly grateful to be back with Starscapes again. I hope if anyone ever thinks they can match this paint, they will read this and realize I have done all the homework for them and I believe i was VERY THOROUGH about it!! It's NOT worth even trying...save your time AND your money and stick right here :)) Betsy McCullen, New York

Got my pictures developed and will send you one

have now 5 bedrooms to do, with the possibility to do one of the Washington
Redskins football players' house!!!!! That is exciting!!! I can not wait!!
WE'VE RECEIVED 3 INQUIRIES IN THE LAST 2
DAYS...APPOINTMENTS SET....CAN HARDLY WAIT FOR THESE FOLKS TO SEE THE FINISHED
RESULTS....AM I EXCITED OR WHAT?! THANKS WARMLY,
I Invited a neighbor over for a beer and "just
happened to mention" STARSCAPES®. He wanted to know
what I was talking about. I pulled out the Demo, and said "It's this." He looked
at it and responded, "I don't see anything." (My grin started creaping around my
head.) I said, "Go over there and turn that light off." He did and, as he
turned, I was holding it above my head (not very professional, I know, but, hey,
moment's notice). He just stood there... looking up... in AWE! He asked how much
it costs to have a room done. I told him that normally, it was $3.25/sqft, but,
for him, I'd do it for $2/sqft IF he'd have a party this weekend. HE AGREED!!!
Party is scheduled for this Saturday night. I'll be doing his condo bedroom,
starting around 5pm!
I must say my whole family (especially my wife)
just loves the STARSCAPES® mural. We usually end our
waking moments listening to nature sound music and stare at our night sky until
we fade away.
I got my package and did my first job and was
great. I advertised some and got very good response so I will be ordering some
more stuff soon. I´m looking forward to get information on the new products you
mention in the gold coin specially about the space battle thing, sounds great
Joe Petrashek is an honest and reliable
business man. His STARSCAPES® concept is a great
opportunity for anyone willing to make money and a great gift to humanity. I´m
very proud to be one of his associates. I earned $500 in my first week in
Thanks for the speedy reply. I knew right from the start that your company was unique & in a class of its own. I appreciate the "bonus" Super 10 paint & will take you up on your request to make a couple thousand on you! I am truly looking forward to a long & prosporous relationship with you & your company. Thank you again Joe. T. Golbuff, Florida
Well, Joe, I must say that I am truly blown away! You are one class act! This is the one I've been waiting for! Tthe fact that you added my name to the roster (webpage) proves to me that you have the opportunity I have been waiting for! I'll be real interested in approaching some of the huge hotels here. Anyway, sorry to be so long winded, but I have been totally disappointed by my several forays into "Multi level marketing" (vitamins, detergents, soap, enemas, etc.) You can have them! STARSCAPES® is a business I can see doing for the rest of my life simply because I am a SUCKER for glow in the dark stuff! I wish all of the Lord's blessings for you and Beverly! K. and D. Marmon, Texas
I did my first demo to my wife and family. It's great, no words to describe the phenomenon. P. Bertin, Gabon, Africa
Joe, I just wanted to compliment you on your great presentation. You have one of the best sales letters I have ever seen . You captured my attention and created curiosity , "I just had to order your STARSCAPES® program"! I received The STARSCAPES® program yesterday. Let me tell you , I am even more impressed with the program. The Demo poster is absolutely amazing , I couldn't believe my eyes. This is absolutely the best home business I have ever come across. I would say "wish me luck", but I don't think I'll need it with STARSCAPES®! Great customer service and support! Thank you & Aloha, R. Ho Jr. , Hawaii
I have four ceilings to paint - just from the
little poster! We are really excited.
I'm so excited!!! I received another order today! WOW! What a feeling!! Joe, Again I say thanks for this awesome opportunity. I finally stop procrastinating and realized I can reach for the stars. Happy to be on board! A. Lepage, New Hampshire
I really do love doing this! C. Mroz, Michigan
I can't sleep at night. I'm so excited! I did
my own room in 20 minutes. After I got done, I couldn't believe I did it! I just
kept saying "This is impossible! This is just impossible". I'm just amazed and
totally stunned with it! It looks so real! The minor stars even twinkle! I'm
considering I'm already a wealthy man!
Just finished my first 3 STARSCAPES®. People are so amazed that I have to hold back from laughing at their response! I'm in as much awe as they are! An amazing home based business! A. W. Canada
I've done 95 STARSCAPES® up to now, at an average price of $250 each. K. C. Indiana
I did a "freebie" for my friend,for the practice and advertising value. My friend is a pretty laid-back kinda guy and just said "Yeah, looks cool." I thought maybe he didn't like it much and was just being polite. I saw him at work today, and he said the closest thing he had ever seen to it was the planetarium in Seattle! Better than that, his little girl, (whose room it was), had been sick and sleeping with him and his wife. They had been trying to get her back in her room, now they can't keep her out of it! She had some of those big glow-in-the-dark stars, which now just lay on her dresser. B. McIntyre, Washington
The poster blew us away! It actually looked like a hole in the ceiling! D. S. in Texas
I'm truly impressed! It's like a dream come true! C. Mroz, Michigan
Just finished my first job. On top of the $380 I charged for the 11'x13' room, they gave me a $50 tip! (Dana did 2 more jobs that week. Total = $860.00!) If it weren't for STARSCAPES®, I wouldn't have been able to pay my rent. D. C. Pennsylvania
I can't tell you how very excited I am about my STARSCAPES®. After my husband died, I haven't been able to return back to our room. I knew I'd need something very compelling, very special & exceptionally unique for a "changed return". When I saw your STARSCAPES®, I knew that I had found the answer. I've waited several months and finally am able to have you come and create one for me. You and STARSCAPES® have made an especiallly difficult transition for me into one that will be peaceful, inspiring and each night will be one to look forward to, instead of the opposite. I thank you deeply and hope you know you're appreciated. Thanks many times. S. Green in Arizona
I had a great success at our local fair, please
send me 15 more ounces of Creation Paint!
I could not wait to get my package and see if
all about starscapes is true. Well all I can say is I am impressed!!! I have
completed my (Amazing STARSCAPES®) poster, and I
have looked at it over and over again in sheer awe!! My sheer congrats on the
real super product... I cannot remember when last I was this excited about
anything. An entire ceiling must be incredible!
Wow, do you have something ULTRA here! Please send complete kit. I have jobs already! Please send overnight! K. H. Florida
I already got a job offer at a resort condo! B. McIntyre, Oregon
I've done 200 jobs in the last few months, and I never wavered off my price of $325. Sometimes I charged more! T. D. New Jersey
Impressive kit! Now it's time to make money! R. B. Idaho
Wow! I am excited. I spent over n hour staring at the poster (in the back of the manual)! It's truly amazing! R. O. New York
I wish I had known about this some years ago! B.C. Massachusetts
Fascinating business! Extremely lucrative and a great deal of fun. L.C. Utah
Can't wait to get started! T.Z. Kansas
I've received your manual and read it several times. It is fantastic! I feel confident about the illusion and my Milky Way looks REAL good, very authentic. And the depth perception really is there! I hope to be doing this full time real soon. So far, I've painted four ceilings. They all can't believe it's invisible (in the daylight). They all love it, and they're excited about it! Joe is honest, fair, and knowledgeable. The business is definitely worth more than the start-up price. My fourth job took me an hour and a half and paid me $ 75! The money is good and I'm having fun! R.C. Utah
I've ordered through the mail for years, yours in the most UNIQUE! H.W. California
I recently had the opportunity to see a STARSCAPES® painting; and to say the least, I was very impressed. The artist was kind enough to give me your name and address. Would you please send me some information on becoming a STARSCAPES® Artist. Thank you. D. L. Texas
I shut myself in my closet to see the poster. When I got my face clear of the clothes -- I said, "OH, WOW"! B. R. New York
I want you to know that I've done 16 STARSCAPES® at $129 each; and am very excited to begin doing a greater volume of business. I. S. Vermont
You are truly a man of your word. A.M. Wisconsin
Excellent book and accessories Thank you. M.C. California
Thank you for the quick and efficient response in sending the material. T.M. Colorado

Extremely happy with your manual! It really
looks like THIS is what I've always been looking for!
New STARSCAPES® Illusionist Doug Copeland just booked two $85 jobs the very first time he showed his "demo" (explained in the latest newsletter which you'll receive)!
The manual is everything you said it was - and
more. I can't wait to get started! I've sent for HUNDREDS of opportunities over
the years, some have been good, but yours is without doubt the GREATEST!
I thank you very much for your book. You've got a winner here! Your book is excellent and anybody who decides to use your plan will make good money. I.Z. Ontario, Canada
Your training materials are of the highest quality, very explanatory, and even fun to read. I have no doubt that almost anyone could bring in a very good income if they seriously applied themselves to this business. W.J. Oklahoma
I'm really impressed! Looks like a winner! R.B. Utah
It was such a surprise to actually talk to someone. Over the last couple of years I've tried several times to ask questions about certain ads and all I received was an answering machine which never called back. It was also very exciting to hear about an original idea, not another mail order or network marketing scheme. Thanks for sharing your opportunity with me. I really need it to pay medical bills. Ron G. Oklahoma
Many thanks for the refund. I did not expect it at all. I do hope you returned it for good business attitude and not due to my (physical) difficulties and problems. This to me shows that you, and of course, your wife are honest business folks. May God grant you success in your business now and for as long as you run it. Amen. S. K. Texas
Your ad was exactly as you described. This is the most money per hour I have ever made. It is rare to find a program like this that actually does what it says...yours does! Thank you very much Joe. Y. Iguchi, Louisiana
I just did my first STARSCAPES®
and made $100 in just one hour. It's an incredible opportunity.
I have purchased the STARSCAPES® program and products from Joe Petrashek & Voyager Industries. This is an easy to follow plan that I have personally made $150 per hour with many times. Joe's products are above and beyond what he even represents. I am more than satisfied. Tom R. Florida
It was a pleasure speaking with you on the phone! This is the most exciting opportunity I've ever seen. I've got customers already waiting! Ken B. Texas
I've sent for a lot through the mail... THIS is the BEST! J.D. Utah
I did my first two STARSCAPES® jobs and people are amazed! Luis M. Florida
I used to repair windshields. This is the first thing my wife's ever got excited about! Glen B. Iowa
All through the years I have known and studied star patterns, and like you, love the night sky. While I was experimenting in my room, I found my designs were a likeness to the original and gleamed with perfection! I am quite excited and looking forward to working this for many years and am considering traveling with it, and I want to associate with your company throughout this time! Scott S. Utah
My friend recently purchased the StarBiz from you. Unbeknown to me, he had painted the poster and put it up on the ceiling. Boy, was I surprised and impressed when I saw it! He wouldn't tell me where he got it from for the longest time. I practically forced it out of him! I would therefore like to order the package as advertised. I'm so excited I can't wait! D.J. Florida
I am very glad I crossed your path. I love STARSCAPES®! 1st room: poor work but kids still love it. 2nd room: practice...excellent. 3rd room: Actual job...looks excellent! Thanks again Joe! Frank W. Maryland
A pleasure to see a true opportunity that anyone can do and really make money doing it. Thanks for the opportunity. T.M. Kentucky
Send me the Star Kit! Customers are waiting! Roy C. New York
Can't wait to get started! I've already sold two ceilings and haven't even received my kit yet! Kim B. Arkansas
I read your manual once and it's thorough. One can tell it has been written by someone who's been there. I can't wait to paint my room! I think you are wonderful for sharing your ideas and giving people an honest, fun, lucrative way to make money. Marie C. Virginia
I booked 30 jobs before even seeing your materials. Now, I've landed a deal with a famous hotel/casino here! Gary C. Nevada
I had built a 10' x 10' portable room at the Home Show out of 2 x 4's and black vinyl. I amazed over 600 people that waited in line to see my STARSCAPES®! Tom M. Kansas
I can't say enough about how exciting this home business is. It's great! Joe's information and start-up kit is brilliant! I've gotten 11 jobs in my first 2 weeks! My goal is to have a store in a busy mall! Mitch L. Ontario, Canada
I have been able to read and study the manual, paint the sample chart, and think about the possibilities. You did not exaggerate the results. They are amazing! I am going to do a couple of my own ceilings and maybe for a friend. By that time I should be an experienced professional! Richard D. Pennsylvania
The most fun I've ever had! Shelly M. Kansas
I really love having stars up on my ceiling. I like it so much. I feel like a little kid with a new toy! Charlie M. California
This is indeed a great system without a doubt! George R. Maryland
I'm pleased with my decision to become associated with STARSCAPES INTERNATIONAL. I had seen the "illusion" at the state fair about 3 years ago. All this time I had been thinking about it, wondering... How do they do that? I have been in business for myself and worked for others for over 20 years, and I can tell you that your company offers the best money making opportunity on the planet!!
When I mailed off my request to you , I figured it would take about 3 or 4 weeks to receive my package. Boy was I surprised when I received it in less than a week. All materials and everything covered in the plan are really first class. I can see that no expense was spared in preparing these materials. Your company is the first I have come across in many years that operates with the "customer" in mind. I don't feel (that) I'm on my own, and I know you're only a phone call away. It's nice to do business with someone who cares!! And thanks for the newsletters. It's great reading what others have accomplished and how they are doing it. Bill Pearson, Washington
