Your Print Partner, not Vendor!

Having the right support team in your corner is always a huge advantage, especially if there is competition! It’s pretty self-explanatory, no? If you have a skilled team behind you, equally as invested in your success as you are, then getting to the front of the pack is a lot easier then doing it all on your own.

While our mission here at ArtisanHD / Artisan Colour is always geared toward client success, it is our passion for the support of the individual artist that sets us apart from most other Print Production Houses. While some of our prints are available via other online channels, others are very uniquely “our brand” of print – and having an eye for what images work best on what type of substrate, is an art form all unto itself.

I personally take a lot of pride in the review of the digital assets, and how I can best picture it as a printed, finished product. But this is really just the beginning. Take Carol Crane for example.

Picking the Right Print Medium…Dibond

While she was the one with the critical eye for the captures, I was simply tasked with choosing the right material to print to. In the case of “Rusty” the choice was obvious…the grit and toughness of the truck, slowly rusting in the harsh Arizona Desert had to be printed on brushed metal (Dibond Aluminum). Then Carol helped elevate the image further with the vision she had for the framing and mounting, which added another layer of style and beauty.


Once she was finished with framing our print (Produced on the OCÉ480XT – Direct Digital Flatbed Printer) she entered it in the Fountain Hills Art Show. The city of Fountain Hills has long been known for their annual events, centered around Fine Art, Photography, Music, Food and more.

For example, the annual FOUNTAIN HILLS GREAT FAIR features skilled artists and craftsmen from around the world offering unique, one-of-a-kind works of art.

Now in its 30th year, this three-day juried art fair features nearly 500 artists and artisans from across the United States and around the globe. Food booths,  beer garden, and seating areas are plentiful throughout the venue and help to attract the 200,000+ visitors that come. Attendees enjoy a great breakfast, lunch and rest stops situated at locations in the middle and at both ends of the festival area and live musical entertainment add to the fun ambiance throughout the event.

As you can image, we were thrilled to learn that she took 2nd Place with her entry and she plans to do it again in the near future.

Helping artists gain a new edge in the competitive world for Commercial Art

We provide both established and budding artists with the best prints and materials, but that is just one of the many ways we show our support. We have sponsored local artistic competitions (like the one at the AZ State Fair) and often invite talented artists to tour our facilities to get a “behind the scenes” understanding of what we can do and how we do it.

So the next time you are ready to showcase your unique creations, be sure to stop by ArtisanHD for an individual consultation…you won’t regret it and you just may add another Ribbon to your Trophy Wall!
