Why Verde fastframe™?
The Verde fastframe is an innovative SEG (silicone edge graphic) signage system uniquely engineered to be assembled quickly and easily, and re-used over and over again for years to come. Made with reclaimed materials and shipped in a light, compact carton, the Verde fastframe gives you a greener way to display your message.
A unique system that saves you time and money
The Verde fastframe assembles in minutes with just three easy steps, with no tools required and no loose parts to worry about. So you’ll save time and cut down on installation costs. To deliver even more savings, the Verde fastframe can be re-used again and again. Simply insert a new graphic panel in place of the old one – a process so easy it can be done onsite by store personnel. The Verde fastframe is made from high-impact polystyrene that can be used indoors or outdoors, and it will last for years to come.
A green signage solution that lives up to its name
If you speak Spanish or Italian, then you know that verde means green – and the Verde fastframe certainly lives up to its name. Manufactured in Ontario, this innovative signage system is made with reclaimed materials and ships in a light and compact carton for a smaller carbon footprint. The Verde fastframe minimizes waste. Its high-impact polystyrene frame was made to last and to be re-used over and over by simply replacing the graphic panel. For an even smaller carbon footprint, we recommend using Verde with an eco-friendly graphic fabric printed with water-based inks.
