History of Candid
We’re a unique company with a unique story that led us to where we are today.
A Clever Idea That Turned into Something Bigger
It all started in the late
It wasn’t long until a promising business had emerged, as one campus became two, and three, then four,. This led to colleges, universities, and high schools across the country requesting photos for graduation ceremonies, parties, special events, groups (bands, teams, cheer squads, etc.) all processed at this very cutting edge processing lab.
Candid Color Systems® was later formally established in 1972 and has been the leader in special events photo finishing and photography for 40 years. We continue to provide our customers with fast, premium quality photo finishing, along with proven marketing methods and tools that create a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
“Our customers are our partners and friends. We exist solely because of our customers and we are only successful when they are successful.”
Simply put, Candid Color’s goal is the same as its customers’ — to grow their business profitably.
