FOTO FINISH CELEBRATING 25 YEARS
Foto Finish opened its doors for business in Chard on May 26th 1990.
Colin and daughter Marie began this adventure together, offering the people of Chard and the surrounding areas, a new and exciting 1 Hour Photographic Service.
Who can remember having their 110, 126, 120 and 35mm films developed and printed here?
Our 1 hour developing service is still available, as many of our customers still use 35mm film.
Quality and customer service has always been the top priority at Foto Finish, and we understand how precious your photographic memories are to you.
All the staff at Foto Finish are passionate about photography, and keeping up to date with the latest developments, as are our customers.
In 2002 Foto Finish introduced their new Digital Service, allowing our customers to print in store, via our kiosk, from digital cameras.
In 2004 Colin retired, and Marie took over the business, and has not looked back since, always moving forward with technology.
In 2005 we began to offer Canvas and Poster printing on our new Large Format Printer.
In 2011 Foto Finish began to offer our customers Photo Gifts, allowing them to use their images on products, such as personalised mugs, t-shirts, keyrings, jigsaw puzzles, tablemats, coasters, I-phone, I-pad and Samsung cases, to name but a few.
Box Art and Photo Panels arrived in 2013, and as all, our services have proved to be very popular.
In 2014 we were very pleased and excited to be able to offer everyone via our Foto Finish APP, the new online and mobile ordering service. So even when you’re out and about making those new memories; with our mobile and online option, you can order your products, ready to be collected the following day.
We also have guest wi-fi in store, so you can order direct from your wi-fi enabled digital camera, mobile phone and tablets.
Foto Finish is now 25 years old, as you can see; we have always endeavoured to keep up to date with the latest technology to offer the best and most imaginative services possible.
Many things have changed since we opened the doors for business in 1990, but the Quality and Service have remained the same, and that is the one thing that will never change at Foto Finish.
