Artisan POS for Fine Craft Stores & Galleries


Handmade for the Fine Craft Industry:
Artisan™ POS Software is used by more of Niche Magazine’s Top Retailers of North American Craft* than any other POS solution available today.  

Artisan has a long and successful relationship with the Fine Craft industry:
We’ve exhibited at the BMAC “Rosen Show” every year since February 2000, and now have hundreds of craft galleries and high-end gift shops using our software. Fine Craft Retail is in our blood: Our lead programmer and co-founder, Kurt Gollhardt, grew up in the business; his mother, Paula Leighton, jeweler & successful gallery owner for over 30 years, was at one time President of the American Craft Retailers Association (ACRA, the predecessor to C.R.A.F.T.).

We help these successful galleries operate smoothly and profitably. Like them, you can use Artisan to seamlessly control and manage inventory and analyze sales, and help keep track of your customers.

Make your difficult tasks easier:

  • Trouble-free consignmentinventory with ready-to-mail Pay-Out Statements
  • Easy-to-use Layaways, Special Orders, one-of-a-kind items, and Store Credits
  • Option to use full-sheet or half-sheet custom receipts with your logo (or use a receipt printer) 
  • Improve customer retention with Loyalty Clubs and Gift Registries
  • We can help you create an Online Store with product info managed entirely in Artisan
  • Sales Rep Commission Reports

Save a tree & save yourself a lot of hassle:
No more hand-written sales slips!  With today’s slick black flat-panel screens, you can maintain the elegant look of your store while using a computer (under the counter) or laptop to quickly & easily ring up sales.

Control and manage your business:
Each transaction is recorded, deducted from inventory and noted on the customer account. This allows you to track sales by art piece, artist and customer.  You can track which customers bought from which artists, compare specific customer purchase trends and more. Plan staff shifts with Sales By Hour report.

Reporting made easy:
Artisan easily exports accounting data to QuickBooks and Peachtree Accounting. Dozens of built-in reports with numerous options let you analyze sales, inventory and customer activity. Track employee hours with Time Clock option. Custom report services available for a small fee.

Manage and market to current customers:
You can manage customer relationships because you’ll know what they bought, when they bought it and how much they paid. Your customer data can be easily exported to files for use with email programs and other loyalty services, or print mailing labels directly. No other software program gives you as much power to pull out a simple or complex list of customers based on all kinds of important demographic criteria.

Track trends:
Easily identify your best & worst selling items, set automatic reorder levels for stock items, and discontinue slow sellers.

Inventory control/merchandise tags:
Artisan can print small unobtrusive price tags-with or w/o bar codes-with removable adhesive to protect valuable artwork. You can also get just about any size label you desire with your logo, special fonts, custom layouts and more. We even have “string tag” & barbell jewelry tags. Some customizations are done as a service for a small fee.

Artisan works with your existing hardware:
Supports electronic cash drawers, bar code readers, and many other POS devices. We support multiple terminals, simultaneous sales per terminal, and a full Multi-Store option.

Don’t have POS hardware yet? We offer a full range of equipment & supplies.

Secure credit card processing:
Use your standalone terminals or upgrade to Integrated Credit Card Processing for quicker transactions and fewer errors. Fully compliant with the latest PA-DSS credit card security standards.

We pride ourselves on service after the sale.
Artisan is easy to use but we’re always there to answer a question or solve a problem.
