FASTFRAME began in Newcastle, England in 1983.
In 1986, the first FASTFRAME store opened in Thousand Oaks, California. Since then, FASTFRAME has grown to over 250 locations across the USA. Internationally FASTFRAME is located in the UK, Japan, Australia and Brazil.
FASTFRAME stores are owner operated, providing personal design and quality picture framing services for the home or office. Our stores offer immediate turnaround using state of the art, on-site custom framing capabilities. We can also assist you in locating hard to find or out of print pieces of artwork.
Our customers and franchisees benefit from our industry size and experience through competitive pricing and extensive framing technology training. We use only the finest framing materials made anywhere.
At FASTFRAME, our mission statement focuses on delivering excellent, personalized service. You'll be confident in knowing that our framework comes with a Guarantee on both Craftsmanship and Design.
We also offer free personal design advice...from the Experts of course!
The Largest and Fastest Growing Dedicated Custom Picture Framing Franchise In The World!
FASTFRAME is the leader in the industry. In an estimated 6 billion dollar marketplace, with high retail margins, FASTFRAME has developed an Operating System which is simple to administer, requires minimal staffing, enjoys sociable business hours, AND requires a low level of initial investment.
The FASTFRAME Corporation is organized into two major groups - Franchise Development and Franchise Services. WE recognized long ago that although growth and development are important, providing quality service to our existing franchisees is the key to our success. You will enjoy close continued contact with the corporate headquarters and your fellow franchise partners through FASTFRAME's interactive Franchise support system which is hosted on our own secured Intranet site. We hold National and Regional Conferences, and local Franchisee "In Store Meetings".
"Although the franchisees are independent, we see them as partners, and we like to think that the franchisees see each other as partners too. We provide support with training programs, vendor relations, equipment, and assistance with remodeling, relocation, and expanding. And since we have quite a bit of experience with the unique challenges of operating a franchise, when a tough question arises at a FASTFRAME store, they know they can call us for expert advice. We also spend a good deal on local and national advertising - generating in the neighborhood of 10 to 20 million advertising impressions a year. These are some of the unique benefits of being a FASTFRAME franchisee. I like to think of it as being in business 'for yourself but not by yourself'."
Brian Harper, President/CEO, FASTFRAME

"Before I decided to purchase a FASTFRAME franchise, I was an actual FASTFRAME customer for several years. I've seen FASTFRAME for both sides of the counter. Training at FASTFRAME gave me the confidence I could do this on my own. Through their guidance and support, I have been able to succeed well beyond my expectations. The best decision I have ever made was to join the FASTFRAME family."
Patrick Conrad, FastFrame #310, Phoenix AZ
"My whole approach to starting my own business was to lessen as much as possible any exposure to all of the many things that can doom a new venture to early failure. My first choice was to go the franchise route with a company with a proven track record and business model. My second concern was with training and ongoing support. While I do not feel by any stretch I am now an expert in framing or in running my own business, I can tell you the overall anxiety level has dropped a few notches after completing my two weeks of training and being exposed to the type of ongoing support available to the FASTFRAME franchisee's."
"Erik and I would like to personally thank you for imparting your expertise over our two-week session. I have been to many training classes over my years in the Information Technology field and I know it is not easy for a single instructor to effectively hold a group together for 3 days, no less two weeks. You did a great job, showed tremendous patience and provided a lot of personal attention throughout." "Thank you again and we look forward to working with you for many years."
Gary Gould, FastFrame 382, Glen Rock NJ
"The customers are great, the business is varied and challenging, and we never know what is going to come through the door next. We love it!"
