Why Verde fastframe™?
An Innovative Silicone Edge Graphic Signage System.
The Verde fastframe is an innovative silicone edge graphic/ SEG 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 silicone edge graphic 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.

Verde is built on a philosophy of giving – to the environment, to our communities, to our great and beautiful planet. That’s why we made a commitment to donate a portion of our profits from every Verde fastframe to an organization that’s really making a difference in the world. So every time you buy a Verde fastframe, you’re not just getting a great product, you’re also contributing to a great cause.
The Pinball Clemons Foundation
Verde fastframe proudly supports The Pinball Clemons Foundation which provides marginalized youth with educational resources and options to integrate into the mainstream of society. The ultimate goal is not a diploma or degree – they want to see youth successfully enter the workforce.
One Tree Planted
Our frames plant trees! In 2019, our subsidiary company Verde fastframe partnered with One Tree Planted -an organization that works with dedicated reforestation teams around the world that need financial support to help them get more trees in the ground. Verde fastrame donates one tree for every frame ordered, and as of January 2019 we have planted nearly 2,000 trees around the world.
