Family-friendly Framing in Boulder, CO
Boulder Fastframe opened its doors in March of 2002, and Kim and Paul Obert have owned and operated the store since they purchased the business in 2004. They love keeping Boulder Fastframe a kid and dog friendly environment with toys, chalk, and dog biscuits to entertain kids and doggies of all ages.
Paul is a Colorado native who loves riding his bicycle and insisting that his hairline is not receding. When we frame photos of Paul, the top third of his forehead is conveniently cropped to make him look more manly. With a background in Art History and Landscape Design, Kim cleans the bathrooms, manages the store, frames the artwork, and oversees the design team. In addition to their 10-year-old yellow lab, Sadie, the Oberts have two girls who keep them very busy!
Framologist and Managerist Extraordinaire
A proud picture framing nerd, Jese has been framing for over 12 years, and with us for 6! (And no, we didn’t misspell her name). Jese’s framing highlights include the Boulder monopoly game, an ancient Chinese necklace, 1920’s Baseball uniform (see photo) and her custom designs for Phish posters. Have a special project? Jese is your gal. She has two cats, Mishka and Molinko, that work from home most of the time and keep her up all night.
