This has been a momentus week for us here at MADCAT Photography. Sales are getting stronger all the time and on Tuesday we delivered our biggest print yet, a massive 60 inch panoramic canvas of our most popular Mindarie Marina image (MMS1.13). Our thanks go to Linda Clarke, Functions Manager at the Marina for ordering the print.
For anyone interested the canvas is now hanging in foyer of the Mindarie Marina Hotel for all to see 🙂
I must admit that printing an image this size for the first time made me very nervous. But after making some minor adjustments to the image, applying a new sharpening technique and making several test prints I took the plunge and hit the the print button. With all quality settings on max the print took over an hour to print while I sat by impatiently watching it come to life. All went well and the print was stretched by Chris at Leamac Picture Framing and delivered to the Marina on Tuesday evening.
We have just finished putting together the Chocolate Drops submissions for the 2008 WA Tourism Awards. Chocolate Drops have entered the ‘Specialised Tourism Services’ and the ‘Tourism Restaurants & Catering Services’ categories both of which they won Silver in last year.
This is our thrid year creating Chocolate Drops submissions for the WA Tourism Awards and we wish Sue Dash (owner of Chocolate Drops) all the best at the awards this year. 🙂
For anyone not aware of these awards they are the highlight of the WA Tourism Industry calendar with submissions from all over WA. The winners are announced at the WA Tourism Awards Gala Dinner in November, a great night out and a great time to meet tourist operators from all over WA.
If you want to see how good Chocolate Drops is then make sure you pay them a visit at the Tearooms in Yanchep National Park, the range of chocolates on offer is amazing and you can have lunch or tea/coffee there too. Both Chocolate Drops and Yanchep National Park are a great place to visit and with the weather warming up there is no excuse to stay stuck indoors 😉
