the past, present, and future…
Where we’re from…
Founded 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.
Over time, Jack and his wife and business partner Carol grew the fledgling studio into a bustling small business that refocused its capabilities on providing large format oriented photographic services to other businesses and franchises.
As Northeast Color scaled its fabrication and distribution capabilities to meet the unique needs of its national clients, the company developed a crack team of in-house designers, photographers, and production managers.
Soon Northeast Color was producing a diverse array of products and services—from custom wallcoverings, wood grain ceiling tiles, and digital signage to brand development services, E-Commerce platforming, and logistics-driven fulfillment and shipping services.
Today, under the leadership of President Jalmar Dijkstra, Northeast Color strives to provide custom solutions that create immersive brand experiences for both established and emerging franchises 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...
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.
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!
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.
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.
Without Northeast Color our new corporate headquarters would have been just a typical office building--they helped make it ours.
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.
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.
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.
