Well, we have made it. Orchids In Print is now live and available for people to view and purchase products that are based around beautiful orchid images.
I am Peter Johnson, and for those that know me, (or admit to knowing me) you will know that I have been growing orchids for many, many years. I started in my late teens and over the years have built several orchid collections as my family and I have move around.

If you have been a friend of mine on facebook or instagram, you will have seen many images of orchids that I have grown over the years. I have now started using those images to print onto various products, coffee mugs, tote bags, etc, etc.
The images that you will see printed on the products, are all photos taken by myself. I do this, so I do not impinge on anyones copyright. The images are edited by myself, or by graphic designers that I engage to assist in creating beautiful images. (my creative skills are not that great)
We endeavour to source products that are of interest to you, and that we can arrange to have our images printed on. We strive to ensure our products are of a high quality, standard and durability, so you can use them for many years.
As we launch this new shop, we have a limited range of products, and will be adding more as each week goes by.
We value your feedback, and would like you to tell us what products and orchid images you would like to have available. We will then work hard at sourcing them.
Orchid shows & Society/club meetings
We are members of the Noosa Orchid & Foliage Society and intend to visit as many orchid societies/clubs, to attend their meetings and shows as we possibly can. Our intention is to visit any society/club in the world on our travels.
At these meeting as shows, we will take plenty of photos of orchids, to enable us to choose the quality ones to use for print, and to tell the stories of our visits in these blog posts.
Although this is a shop website, we intend to post information and tips on how to grow, care for, and enjoy your orchids, including videos and articles from other authors where permission is granted. Our aim is to have great orchid products and information. My intention is to provide information on both northern and southern hemisphere growing.
So that’s it, we are live and waiting for you to purchase our products, consume the information, and give us feedback on the products and what new products and images you would like to be able to purchase. All with images of beautiful orchids printed on them.
Have a great week.
