Arcand Media was founded in 1998 when we got married, although we didn’t realize it at that point. We’ve worked together on and off for years, sometimes working on projects together, other times working on separate projects independently. Our web presence has taken many forms over the years as well, from blogs and one-off sites, to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn social media platforms. As you get to know more about us we feel confident that we can put you at ease with your decision to use Arcand Media on your next project. We’re glad you are here.

To YOUR Success,

Michael and Crystal Arcand
