    Testimonials

    My career prior to FASTSIGNS required a lot of travel, so I was looking for a business opportunity that’s open five days a week with regular hours. With FASTSIGNS I get to own my own business, my schedule is flexible and I don’t have to work weekends. It’s the best of both worlds.Laurie Sigillito
    I've always been entrepreneurial by heart, but I liked the structured systems FASTSIGNS has in place. It was important to me that I have an experienced team of professionals behind me that were dedicated to achieving my success. There's no better system if you are looking to get into the business.Clint Ehlers

    PostalAnnex+

    Today's busy lifestyles demand the services PostalAnnex+ offers. Capitalize on this demand and open your own business!! After retiring from the printing business PostalAnnex+ founder Jack Lentz began working out of his home as a business consultant. He soon realized the need for mailing faxing copying shipping and other services to belong under one roof. As a result he created the first PostalAnnex+ store business franchise located next door to a post office in the University City neighborhood of San Diego CA. Our franchises serve a growing customer base of small and home-based businesses that lacks the resources our stores offer. Today's hectic lifestyle requires a one-stop service center for businesses that don't have an administrative assistant to take care of those daily errands. Saving our consumers time is what keeps them coming back. By being a local neighborhood business"
