Certified Folder Display Service, Inc. is North America's largest professional travel brochure distribution and display service.
Celebrating Over 110 Years
In 1899, the partners heading up the Peck Judah Travel Agency in San Francisco conceived a plan to place railroad timetables and brochure display racks in major hotels all over the West. Serviced by reliable men, these towering oak displays were round-the-clock information centers for the traveling public.
This simple distribution network was acquired in 1960 by John W. Fearn, who changed the name to Certified Folder Display Service (because each location is "certified" in writing by a location official) and started the long and difficult process of expanding this network from fewer than 100 locations to over 22,000 locations today.
In 1999, Certified proudly celebrated a 100 year history (1899-1999) of providing visitor information to the traveling public.
