    I own a Fast Frame and paying 10.5 percent off the top for, in my opinion, no help.
    I have established better discounts with my vendors than Fast Frame and when I purchased my Fast Frame the woman they gave me to do the paperwork not only over charged me, she went on vacation half way through the sale so my escrow took longer than normal.

    You can not go by one person out of how many store owners. I have a FastFame store in Stafford VA It has been here for over 15 years now and we own it about 10. The Fastframe corp. staff does an outstanding job of keeping us up to date on all new products and updates. Yes we pay 10.5% off the top but I knew that from the beginning and so did he. Please do not go by one person that may not have run his store the way Fastframe outlines. I am very pleased with the FastFrame franchise.
