Unmatched Personal Attention & Imagination
The first time I worked with Artisan Colour I brought in a big sheet of old, rusted metal and asked, “Can you print on this?” They immediately took me right back to the print shop, checked out the piece of steel and ultimately said, “No, it’s not flat enough and would probably break our machines.”
The quick answer was, “No.”
But the point here is that they didn’t sigh and shake their heads and say, “We don’t do that kind of thing.” They took the time to consider my request without rushing me out the door because they were in a hurry to get on to a large corporate customer. In fact, they said, “ Bring in a flatter piece of steel and we’ll give it a try.” Which I did, and they did print on metal, and my oddball artistic idea became a reality.
I certainly understand that there are limitations. But where Artisan is not limited is in imagination. They have that unique openness of thought that gives them the ability to work beyond arbitrary limits. Maybe more importantly, they have the creative agility to bring an artist’s concept to life.
I’m a very, very small client for ArtisanHD. They don’t make much money from my little corner of the art world, but you sure can’t tell that by the way I’m treated. The personal attention they give me is unmatched in my experience. I think they kind of like the challenges that wacky artists bring to them. The fact is, the people I’ve worked with here are artists themselves and have that wonderful openness to “what if”.
In my estimation, all business should be considered a partnership, not a transaction; a sharing of expertise, not a limiting of possibilities by pre-conceptions; a respect for what each brings to the table; a joy of being involved in the process.
To me Artisan Colour has met and exceeded what I believe a good partnership should be.
