Customer Comments

The following are some of the comments that have been received from customers that have set up my XVR glow in the dark stars over the past 9 years. I have many more comments from older star versions but no time to add them for the moment.

The one thing that all these customers have in common is correct room darkness which allows them to see the star effect as it was designed.

XVR 4th GEN Stars - July 2015 to December 2017

Hey Marcel, Stunning, absolutely amazing 🙂 Thank you very much for this awesome nightsky !!! I’ve attached a picture I took now that I’ve finished setting up the stars, maybe you want to put it on the website 🙂 Great job man!

Hi Marcel, I took these pictures around 5:00 o’clock in the evening EST. the sun was going down. i closed the shades in the room. the ceiling pictures i will have to take when its much darker at night. Thank you for your professional service and for providing such a exceptional product. the different size and smaller stars is really what takes the whole night stars come alive in a realistic scene. I can see why your so busy with orders…

I was not able to get good shots of the ceiling and walls together. The room looks amazing once it got dark here. My wife and I were laying on the floor admiring the depth and color of the stars. It was like star gazing in the middle of a clear sky at night but in the comfort of our own home. We could even set up a tent to camp in the room! 🙂 Thanks again. I will try and send pictures of the ceiling when I have more time. victor – USA

Marcel, Last week, I was able to take the time to install my son’s star ceiling. And while it may take some time for my neck and shoulders to recover from sticking 2000 stars up there, it was completely worth the effort. I’ve attached a photo (a one-minute exposure since they’re so realistically faint), but you know better than anyone that photographs can’t begin to do justice to the real effect of lying under these stars. Drawing his heavy curtains and making the room pitch black thrusts us into a very realistic night sky experience.
As you can see, I’ve positioned many of the brightest stars to show some of the most prominent northern hemisphere constellations, and I even went so far as to try to preserve some important spatial relationships where possible. I want the ceiling to be as educational as it is beautiful, and I think, due to your outstanding product, it does an excellent job at being both!

Thanks so much for creating these amazing stars. You’ve made for one very happy customer, and a 4-year-old who adores them and will be thrilled to have these in his bedroom for a very long time. The stars are everything your website promises: realistic, long-lasting, and easy to install. They really are the best thing available on the market…by light years! Cheers! David – USA

I ordered from you just a couple of weeks ago all the way from Nova Scotia, It’s an incredible product. My sons ceiling looks amazing, absolutely realistic. I’ve taken quite a few photos with a Gopro hero4 and they turned out incredible. Feel free to post them on your website. I’ll probably end up ordering more and loading up the ceiling, I currently only have about a 1/4 patch done and I added some very small glowing planets at his request.

A word about this customer photo: The planets will be drowning out some or many of the faint/movement stars so if you do this yourself be aware that they will interfere with your night sky.

Marcel, I know it has been forever since I bought these. I finally got the room finished I was remodelling. See the attached pictures. Feel free to use them. I had to send two emails because I am sending the .RAW image files. Thanks again. Amazing product. This surpassed everything I expected and you truly get lost in the night sky in your own bedroom.

Hi Marcel, Huge thanks for that speedy reply (you must get so many emails) and to be honest I too am quite happy the way they are at the moment, with just the daylight ‘charging’. Perfectly natural. I stopped my car near Goodwood last night (very little light pollution) and killed the lights to check the actual night sky out and was surprised at the similarity. Really fantastic.

My youngest keeps saying “.. I can’t believe he makes them by hand….”, so you really are a wielder of magic over there. They also dig your name ‘Marcel’ as they have started French.Thanks for the tips on the move, shall check them out again tonight and decide. We’re now booked to see ‘Frosty Winter Night Sky’ at the local Chichester Planetarium; you’ve sparked something. Best, Steve – USA

Happy New Year Marcel,

I managed to put the stars up on Boxing in my 4yr old daughter’s bedroom, as they were her Christmas present, they had remained in the tin box until then. Just want to say a supernova sized thank you to you for making such an amazing, honest product – I resisted just trying them out until i’d affixed them all to the ceiling, hiding various constellations (thanks for those too!) within random scatterings.

Then we switched the lights off……….WOW!!!…..absolutely unbelievable!! We were simply blown away by what we saw – they are uncannily realistic, so impressed!!

Thanks so much again, Marcus

Hey Marcel!

Thank you; this is review overdue since I had successfully put up the stars on my ceiling right before Christmas.

I got say, I had some sort of expectation beforehand on how it’ll look and I am genuinely surprised at how these Stars work. It’s like my eyes are playing trick on me, the illusion of them twinkling as if they were moving plus the different sized stars made it really amazing to witness. I wish I could take a picture to share but we both know it won’t do it any justice for it has to be viewed in person to experience something like this. (Funny how I read most reviews saying this as well prior to purchase and felt otherwise, challenged to take a picture to capture its beauty, but to no avail)

My parents, whom were pretty old-school in terms of only having the standard white, plain ceiling, were more than impressed to see its effect in full darkness, perhaps even more amazed than I was! Pretty sure Mum’s going to enjoy my room when I eventually move out 😉

Oh, and applying them weren’t as tedious as I anticipated them to be, so that works out well! I was a little worried initially that I took so long to get them up on the ceiling, about 6 months from purchase before I opened them? Turns out it didn’t matter at all and everything worked out fine. Can’t believe you make these by hand, or that these stars work the way they do. Thank you so much Marcel!

Best Regards,

Hi Marcel, I received the star strips in the mail today and I was able to properly install them in my library. I’m a little disappointment that my camera can’t capture the image properly because it’s truly amazing. This is a beautiful product and I’ve very, very happy with how it turned out. I’m sure that I’ll be ordering another set soon for my bedroom and I’m going to tell everyone I know about them. Thank you. Regards, Dalton

Marcel, It’s been over a year now and the stars are still amazing! I recently bought a Sony A7s that I was able to capture a glimpse of the stars but you’re right in doesn’t quite bring them to life in the way they appear to flicker to the naked eye. We are thrilled by them! They are the best investment we’ve made in our daughters room yet. Looking forward to purchasing some more for my sitting room. You’re awesome keep them coming! Sincerely, Austin C – USA
Marcel, Your product was everything I was hoping for and more! Our ceiling turned out perfect and was a great surprise to my wife.. thank you again for the prompt shipping and hard work in creating these stars! Erik – USA
Hi Marcel. I just received my package with the Stars I ordered. I put them up in the kids room, turned of the lights, and the stars simply came alive. They are just fantastic. In our house we are building, there will be a room dedicated to a Home theater (37 square meters, roughly 400 sq feet). My wife and I are just blown away, I just found the nightsky I was looking for. Thank you so much. I will order more when I get closer to the House bring finished in may 2016. Have a great weekend. Best regards Anders – Denmark
Marcel, I should have responded sooner. I just wanted to say that your product was everything that it claimed to be, and probably more. When my Granddaughters arrived for their summer visit they were in awe of the night sky I had put up in their room. Thank you for making this project a spectacular success. David. Texas – USA
Well, so delighted to add another drop to your sea of clients are over the moon with what your product added to their home theater…your directions, and other customer comments, made application a fun and tidy process…this job was the most fun we’ve had this season…creating a massive night sky in a specially designed room…just so much fun and magical impact! Thank you, Marcel…I’m anxious to do this again in the future!  United States
I’ve put up just 2 strips (30″x30″ area each) and it’s amazing. The depth you feel and as your eyes adjust you see more stars, just like in the real night sky. It takes only 5-10 mins per strip and then I just shone the iPhone flashlight on them for a few seconds and it’s wonderful. Thanks for making such a great product; my kids are going to love this. I was also impressed by the packaging, putting them in a tin rather than just wedged between sheets of paper. Thanks, Nicholas – USA

XVR - GEN II Star Kits - Jan 2014 to March 2015

Hi Marcel: Your stars are fantastic! Splurging on them was one of the best decisions I made during my recent bedroom remodel. The stars add immeasurably to the sense of peace in the room, and were well worth the price. I’ve used your largest, XVR1064, kit on a ceiling that’s 150 square feet–about 14 square meters–and matte black. (I actually enjoy being able to see them in the daytime.)
I invested in blackout shades and soundproof windows, and when I turn out the lights for sleep, a dense field of sharp, bright stars shimmers into being. There’s nothing quite like waking up in the middle of the night to find them still glowing brightly. It’s pure magic. You sell a truly first-class product and I’m so glad I took the plunge. Best regards, Anne.

Marcel, I don’t know how to begin to tell you how pleased I am with the XVR star kit. My mind is blown! The vision can only be described as phenomenal. It’s like my daughters ceiling has come alive! I have nothing but great respect for your creative works and at some point I will have to buy the largest kit you have for my wife and I’s room.
I have taken several pictures with my Nikon D3300 with a Rokinon 16mm f/2 lens at various exposure, aperture and ISO settings but nothing has recreated what my eyes see so I won’t bother sending you any of my meagre attempts at capturing what is actually there (but I will continue to try) and I most certainly will not post any of my images online as none will do your work any justice! If by chance, I happen to come across a Nikon D810A or high end Canon equivalent in the future I will be sure to share my results with you. Thank you for what you are doing! Sincerely, Austin – United States
Hello Marcel! Yesterday I managed to find some time with my wife out of the house to install the stars. Surprisingly, it took about an hour and a half (including moving the furniture around) for two persons, I really didn’t expect that. And the effect -wow. Your descriptions are real and accurate, and we were quite late in falling asleep, gazing at our ceiling! And now it’s morning, and they’re still lit up… Amazing. Have a great day, Themistocles – Greece
Dear Marcel, I would just like to thank you for making these amazing star kits. They are worth every single penny! I had my 1st night last night sleeping under the stars. I’m absolutely amazed at how real they look, it does exactly what it says on the tube so to say. I will be buying another kit soon because I have to do my daughters room. Thanks for the bringing the outside in 🙂 Don’t ever stop making these! My daughter saw them for the 1st time last nite, I so wish I could of filmed her reaction, it brought tears to my eyes! Once again thank you so much and all the best for the future. Kind regards, Extremely happy customer, Louise – USA
Marcel, My stars are insane. Can’t get over them. I knew they would be good, but I didn’t imagine they’d be THIS AWESOME! It’s like I have no roof. Best way to fall asleep every night. Truly a phenomenal product. Go you. Xxx – USA
Hey Marcel, I just wanted to give you some feedback on the kit I ordered. The stars look fantastic! They really give the impression of being outside and looking up at a star filled sky. My wife and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks for making such a great product. Take care, Mike. – USA
Hey Marcel, I am writing you this email to thank you for the beautiful stars. You are a magician! This had always been my childhood dream and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this happen. From the moment I received the package I know you are a man who takes so much pride in your work. It was labeled beautifully and well packaged. Not to mention the super fast delivery. I really wish you all the best in your work. And I will definitely recommend this to anyone who want to make their dreams come true. Please keep working your magic. Your fan from Singapore – Sabreena 🙂

Dear Marcel, I thank you so much for creating such a wonderful product. When I had, originally, gone on the net to try to find what I was dreaming of, I didn’t actually think I’d find it. I had the idea that I would like to fall to sleep under a night sky filled with the magic of all the stars I could possibly envision.

Similar to when I spent time on the top of a mountain on the northern part of Maine. A sky where you could imagine the endless possibilities of life. That was a big dream to go to search for on the net. Well, I am so very happy I found it! Thank you for being the artist that envisioned this first and then had the courage and fortitude to invent the product that would bring me and everyone else that beautiful night sky, right in our homes. It is just as easy as the video on Glowpatch site, to put the stars up on the ceiling and it is just as stunning as in your photo of a room with Glowpatch stars.

It’s incredible that you thought the whole thing through so well, where there are different intensities of light and different sized stars and all. I did put blackout curtains behind my window shades so that I could get the darkest room possible and it made all the difference to do so. I will probably thank you every night as I go to sleep for a long time to come. Laurie – USA

Hello Marcel, I received the stars and I couldn’t be happier. I’m amazed at the depth they create, and the creativity of them. Simply put: Each day I awake to see a white textured ceiling, and at night; I lay in an awing gaze at a galaxy of endless possibilities. Thank you. Nicholas – USA
Hi, Slept under the starry night yesterday! It was so realistic and mind blowing ! ! The effect was like sleeping under real stars. Thank you for making such awesome products! Regards. Aarti – India

Hi Marcel, ho installato le tue meravigliose stelle sul soffitto, l’effetto finale è veramente incredibile e realistico, il cielo sembra cambiare in continuazione e si rimane incantati ad osservare… Un grazie particolare per questo fantastico prodotto! Con i migliori saluti,Mauro

Google Translation for those of us that read English. Got to love Google 🙂

Hi Marcel, I installed your wonderful stars on the ceiling, the final effect is incredibly realistic, the sky seems to be changing all the time and you will be amazed to observe … A special thanks to this amazing product! Best Regards, Mauro – Como, Italy

Hi Marcel, I just have to tell you that I am utterly amazed at how authentic our Glow Patch stars are. They are simply stunning and gorgeous. We only put them up today but I insisted my daughter drove over to see them too as the effect is way too awesome not to share. We found the stars easy to apply and it took my husband and son 3/4 hour working together.

When I walked my daughter out we looked up at the sky and honestly and truthfully, my bedroom ceiling looked just like the night sky. I found we have a bare patch so I will ask my husband to fill it in in the well recognized “saucepan” shape as we purposely saved some for this very purpose. We bought some pure sun block curtaining which we pushed flush against the window as we have a very bright security light just opposite us which made it hard to achieve the required level of darkness.

So, thank you so very much for this fabulous product which delivers all it’s promises……well done, you should be proud of your work. Cheers, Jayne – Australia

Wow wow wow Marcel! I finished putting up the stars today and they were surprisingly easy to install! I expected them to look good but holy, they look amazing! You are one brilliant man, thank you so much! I’ll be recommending you to everyone I know! Cheers, Mietta – USA

XVR-530 Star kits - Feb 2011 to Dec 2013

Marcel, It’s been what, a year? I wanted to pass along a cute quote from my oldest (now 5, then 4). She asked: “why do my stars ‘wink’ at me?” I said: “because they love you…” She said: “ooooohhhhh….thank you daddy for putting stars that love me in my sky!” I said: “any time sweetheart.” Best, Brian – USA
Hi Marcel, OH MY goodness! Just writing to say we put the stars up for the baby’s room last night and I was blown away with how effective they really are. His room was very dark and we lay on the floor in silence for many minutes just going “Wowwwwwww!!” So thank you and congratulations you have an amazing product and I look forward to using more of them. Kind regards, Fiona – Australia
