Where we’re from…

Jack & Carol HodgesFounded in 1982 by entrepreneur Jack Hodges, Northeast Color began as “the Photo Company,” a little studio offering both commercial and consumer photography services in southern New Hampshire.

Armed with a degree from the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology and an extensive work history with Xerox, Jack’s technical knowledge and sales savvy led him to push the boundaries of a typical photo studio, constantly experimenting with new products, processes, and services.

Over time (and with much trial and error), Jack and his wife and business partner Carol grew the fledgling studio into a bustling small business that ultimately refocused its capabilities on providing large format oriented photographic services to other businesses and franchises.

This decisive shift away from the consumer market allowed Northeast Color to expand and scale its fabrication and distribution capabilities to meet the unique needs of its national clients, while simultaneously developing a crack team of in-house designers, photographers, and production managers.

Soon Northeast Color was producing a truly diverse array of products and services—from custom wall coverings, wood grain ceiling tiles, and digital signage to strategized brand development, E-Commerce platforming, and logistics-driven fulfillment and shipping services.

Today Northeast Color strives to develop new products and services to meet the current and future needs of our clients. Our design teams and fabrication facilities provide custom solutions that create immersive brand experiences for both established and emerging businesses across the nation.

Companies such as Timberland, ECCO, Irving Oil, Pierce Promotions, Nine West, Spalding Sports, Reebok, Nike, Planet Fitness and many more have turned to the experts at Northeast Color for our all-inclusive approach to research and development, manufacturing, and distribution of branded products.

What They're Saying...

  • Without Northeast Color our new corporate headquarters would have been just a typical office building--they helped make it ours.
    Caitlin Holmes Director of Events and Facilities at Planet Fitness
  • Northeast Color is an integral part of our corporate team that aides us in scaling our franchises and insuring that we have consistent brand messaging across all of our platforms.
    Reed Bilbray Managing Partner & Co-Owner of Zaniac
  • Northeast Color took ownership of the branding of the inside of Planet Fitness' new corporate headquarters, which allowed myself and my staff to focus on other elements of the building. They took it and ran with it and it came out beautiful.

    Al Buell Vice President of Construction, Planet Fitness
  • Filias found the right partner in Northeast Color—based on their ability to not only deliver on time and on budget, but also to think outside of the box when it came to solving problems and coming up with solutions that had never been tried before.

  • I have been working with Northeast Color since 2015. The team's attention to detail, professionalism, and follow-through are second to none. Jalmar and Emily are both pleasures with whom to collaborate. I know that if Northeast Color is working on one of our projects, it will be of top caliber!
    Katie Comtois Zaniac, Franchise Owner
  • They’ve introduced a variety of cutting edge additions to our clubs such as digital signage and large LED logos that really stand out to members and increase the perceived value of our clubs. I would definitely recommend NEC not only for their products, but also for their incredible staff that is there for you every step of the way.

    Randy Adam Project Manager, Taymax Group
  • After we introduced pfxHD (Planet Fitness Digital Signage) and put up a "featured tanning lotion," we sold 32 of those bottles of lotion in a 6 week time period, which was more than three times the amount sold in any of our other clubs during that same time period.

    Jess McConnell PF Southeast
  • I’ve dealt with NEC (Northeast Color) extensively over the past 3 years and have worked with them for signage, ceiling tiles and wallcoverings for 20 clubs. Their customer service is second to none. Orders are accurate, delivered on time, and if you need something rushed anywhere in the states and also Canada, they get it there for you.
