“FASTSIGNS is the complete package – excellent training and start up support, professional ongoing marketing and technical support, respected by suppliers and customers”

More than fast. More than signs.®

At its core, FASTSIGNS is a company of collaborators, strategists, graphics experts and problem solvers all focused on one thing: raising the visibility of businesses across the country and around the world.

By design, this is a goal largely left open to interpretation. There are virtually endless ways to raise visibility for a company, limited only by imagination. This fact alone makes FASTSIGNS a unique franchise opportunity best suited for driven, creative individuals.

We combine Visibility Strategies with Project Services to create custom solutions.


The brainchild of Gary Salomon and his partner, the late Bob Schanbaum, FASTSIGNS came to realization in 1985 when the duo experimented with the concept of quick turnaround signs and graphics. Ultimately – and, of course, unbeknownst to Bob and Gary at the time – FASTSIGNS would go on to revolutionize the signage industry and helped create an entirely new niche.

By late 1987, the Dallas Metroplex area played host to three company-owned FASTSIGNS centres, and by that time, Gary was committed to growing the brand through franchising. Today, FASTSIGNS is a recognized leader in the sign industry with over 530 franchised units in eight countries – the United States & Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Grand Cayman and Australia (operating under the SIGNWAVE brand).
