Artisan Colour, founded by a trio of print professionals in 1998, is celebrating 20 years of providing innovative catalog services and custom commercial printing to businesses and individuals locally and nationwide.
Located in a 36,000-square-foot building in North Scottsdale, Artisan Colour was founded by catalog industry veterans Doug Bondon, Joe Vallone, and John Passante. Together, the founders represent more than 115 years of color separation and printing experience.
The company employs a team of more than 60 industry professionals dedicated to providing clients of any size with color management, professional studio photography, in-house creative services, and high-quality printing solutions.
“Artisan is delighted to be celebrating 20 years in business. Looking back on two decades, we have built a solid foundation based on a customer-first mindset and unwavering attention to quality,” said President and CEO Doug Bondon.
“Today’s Artisan is a state-of-the-art color graphics agency with a flair for exquisite modern printing. We are proud to have served the community in Phoenix and nationwide and will continue to do so for many years to come,” Bondon said.
Artisan Colour began as a catalog production company in 1998. For its first five years, Artisan built a reputation as one of the top catalog production and color management companies in the nation, winning clients such as Neiman Marcus, Chico’s, Patagonia, and Sundance Catalog. Artisan has since added other highly-recognizable national brands including Prana, Pottery Barn, White House/Black Market, and Bergdorf Goodman.
In 2005, Artisan Colour moved to its current location near Westworld in North Scottsdale. The company absorbed a large format printing company, expanding into a state-of-the-art print production facility. Artisan Colour has diversified its offerings by adding in-house software design engineers, graphic design, and advanced online ordering solutions.
