I remember a post like this from you aruond this time and I love your quality focus. But you have to remember it is your focus on what you believe is quality.For the 12oz, 2 sugar, milk drinker the crap blend is the better product . They do not like a 3oz piccolo on a clean/sweet/mild/citrusy coffee because they buy a coffee to slurp throughout the morning. They might even pop it in the microwave when it goes cold and keep slurping right through ‘til 11am when they get another one. What your post is really about is markets. Markets of consumers. And these consumers ultimately pay for your business to run. When the business advertises the crap out of a good coffee right next to a crap blend, they are probably pushing what they like, but satisfying two markets.In a city, there are a lot of people, and hence a lots of markets, which is a great thing for a business that wants to focus on what they believe is quality, because they will very likely find a market of people to support that idea. That consumer base will LOVE the focus because it so closely aligns with their ideals to the point where they may even HATE other shops that don’t focus on what they like. Or they will prefer one shop over another. Another person will hate you for not serving what they like, which may be a 12oz decaf latte with 2, extra hot for the walk please .a woman I know orders espresso grind for her french press because she loves how sludgy it is, and prefers it that way.So I guess if you are really going to serve the best in every cup you better decide how wide you are going to set your tolerance with regard to quality, and how that will affect your business (possibly positively of course). Because at the moment you serve skim and soy, 12oz takeaways in paper cups with plastic lids, lattes in 12oz bowls and sugar. And i dare say you wouldn’t think any of those are the best way to drink your coffee.I think its great if you can have enough consumers who dig what you are doing to only do it the way you want to and believe is best and be profitable. Otherwise you won’t be able to stand proudly behind your product and be the very best you can be, because you will be compromising your ideals. That could potentially zap your enthusiasm unless you are aware of the compromise and are fully ok with it. It’s also great if you are confident enough to know the way you want to do things and think that there is a best way. You just have to be careful, because it’s a short leap from there, to arrogance. In short, don’t hate.I hope this isn’t taken the wrong way. I’mwriting this more to generate contemplation and acceptance rather than argue for or against a business model; and also more from a consumers point of view than as a business associate.

Fast forward 6 hours and my alarm goes off, I stumble and drop my phone on the wall and manage to fall out of bed trying to turn it off. I hit the snooze button whilst I notice my partner being woken. I head back to sleep thinking I won't head down the beach.

Well it’s official, 2016 has now officially ended and we look forward to what 2017 might throw our way. I can’t be more thankful for all the experiences I’ve had throughout the year, some of them were tough and a lot of them extremely rewarding. I’ve learned a lot about myself and even more about business then I could’ve imagined.

Premium acrylic face mount

If you're after a show stopping look for your beautiful home, then look no further than this incredible medium which will absolutely knock your socks off. Our premium acrylic face mount prints are top of the line and will blow you away. This stunning medium is by far the most sort after with it's dynamic look and high definition feel my images look like they're wet and life like. The process is extraordinary with the image printed on the highest quality metallic pearl fine art paper and then applied to a 4.5mm thick polished sheet of acrylic, finished with Dibond aluminium composite panel on the back.

Our mounting system is also a beautiful in design itself, with no visible mounting brackets the photograph looks like it is floating off the wall. This is achieved by using the Z-bar hanging system which is screwed into the wall and the acrylic locked into place.

Canvas Prints 

Our high quality 400gsm fine art canvas offers a fine structure & a premium bright white inkjet coating for amazing reproduction of art and photography. Combine this with genuine ultrachrome inks of professional Epson printers & you have a canvas print with longevity of 100+ years. Each canvas is then sprayed with a liquid laminate, which not only enhances colour but also protects against UV fading, dust, minor scratches & water. Then expertly gallery wrapped over a stretcher bar made from quality Australian pine & finished with a tape seal backing & plastic coated hanging wire.

What's the difference between a "stretched canvas" and a "rolled canvas" you ask? The stretched canvas is ready to hang on your wall, expertly wrapped and finished with a beautiful backing and gallery hanging wire. The rolled canvas comes in a canister and is best suited for overseas transit or for a special project you might have in mind.

Three piece stretched canvas

Our three piece stretched canvas (also called triptych) is a popular option of the interior designers. Using the rule of thirds the canvas is broken into three pieces giving it a fresh look with a difference. 

Picture framing and metallic prints

Our Photo prints are printed on high quality 250gsm Metallic Pearl paper. Then mounted on acid free foam core & complemented with colour coordinated acid free mat board. Custom cut timber frame is then added along with glass. Professionally finished on the back with a tape seal & plastic coated hanging wire.
For our large framed metallic prints please note no mat board is fitted due to the size of the photograph, instead the photograph is printed with a coloured boarder of your choice (standard is white) allowing for similar affect to the mat board.
