What is Faville Photo?
Faville Photo is a home-based business located in Mesa, Arizona, specializing in fine art, photographic, and canvas giclee printing. We are a small family business, dedicated to our craft and our customers. We love what we do and can't wait to begin working with you!
Where Did It All Start?
Faville Photo officially launched in October of 2008. Originally, we never intended to become a print shop at all. In early 2008, we invested in the giclee printing equipment as a means to affordably produce high quality giclee prints of Jessica's photography. At the time, there wasn't a single giclee quality print shop in the area and it seemed inefficient to order from out-of-state.
We printed Jessica's work exclusively for about 6 months or so, began showing at art shows and getting involved in the art community, and after a while, we started gathering a lot of feedback and quickly realized that we weren't the only ones who had noticed a lack of giclee printing options in the Valley. There were many artists and photographers struggling to produce their own work and having to work with ver-priced and out-of-state vendors.
Time to Make it Official!
In the fall of 2008, we made it official and we launched Faville Photo Giclee Printing. We heard what local artists wanted, so that's what we created. In the years since Faville Photo first started printing as a business, instead of a hobby, we have worked with countless artists, photographers, and people from every walk of life. From them, we have learned exactly what it is our customers are looking for, and we strive to meet all of our customers' needs with a great, friendly attitude, timely and accurate service, and best of all, really affordable prices. We think that we've developed a great business model, and our goal is to continue to operate this business for as long as it stays viable. Right now, Faville Photo is a small, home-based operation, working from a residential location, where we have converted the front half of the house into a gallery, photo studio, and print lab. All of our work is created right here on site, from printing, to varnishing, to stretching, and even framing and matting. All of the work is performed in house by the owners themselves - John and Jessica.
Where are We Going?
As Faville Photo continued to grow, we had considered buying a commercial location and expanding our business even further, with more offerings and perhaps even a gallery to show our work as well as our customer's work. Over time, though, our plans had changed and we were looking to expand our family instead of our business, and in 2013, we decided to have a baby. Jacob was born in the Spring of 2014, and since then we have slowed down on our expansion of Faville Photo in order to spend time with our son as he grows into a wonderful little boy.
We still operate Faville Photo every day, and we are still looking to take on new clients and help anyone with their giclee printing needs. We just decided keep it personal and casual. We still run our studio from our home just like we did a decade ago, and we are thrilled to have been doing this for so long, and we look forward to many more years of working with all of our wonderful customers!
