ProEDGE Celebrates 10th Anniversary by Adding a New Color to it’s Hi-Tech Framing System

Ten years ago, a digital printer in Central Missouri had an idea.  Ric Brady, founder of ProEDGE 
was one of the first to invest in wide format imaging technology, which at that time, was just starting to take off.  
The parent company of ProEDGE® began to experiment with a precision mitering tool they had 
invented to allow them to install custom frames to mounted prints.

Now, ten years later, ProEDGE®, is the manufacturer and U.S. patent holder of the fastframer 
custom framing system.  The company now offers three different models of mitering tools.  

The special hi-tech moldings, which look like aluminum, but are actually made of a special hi-tech plastic 
co-extrusion, are available in 6 different gap widths and 12 different colors.  The different gap widths allow the 
framing of photos or images mounted to virtually any standard graphic art board substrate, such as foamboard, 
gatorfoam, pvc, plexiglass, etc.

"By utilizing our U.S. patented technology", Brady said, "Our customers can measure, notch and install a 
ProEDGE® frame in about two minutes".  "The average aluminum frame takes a minimum of ten to twenty times 
more labor to miter and install", Brady said, and "when everything is finished, it is virtually impossible to 
distinguish an image framed with an expensive polished aluminum frame from that same image framed with 
ProEDGE®".  There is a huge difference in material costs, installation labor, finished weight and tools needed to 
complete the job of framing the image in aluminum vs. ProEDGE®.  Our prospective customer industries include 
Photographers, Photo Finishers, Digital Printing & Signs, and anyone who seeks a "finished, professional edge".

In celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary, the company will be introducing a special new "10th Anniversary" framing 
color in January 2008.  To vote for the color of your choice, go to and click on the "survey"
