FastSigns Int’l. Inc.
Gary Salomon, then a print broker, got the idea to open FastSigns in 1985 when he stopped in to a print shop in Austin, Texas. The shop was utilizing the latest computer technology to produce signs, documents, and other printed items very quickly. Salomon was intrigued and asked the store’s owner to train him - along with business partner Robert Schanbaum - to use the design and printing software. The owner agreed, and Salomon opened his own store in Dallas and began franchising shortly after. FastSigns still provides quick graphics and printing services from out of more than 500 stores.
