UPS's speedy shippers pack and transport parcels by land and air, help customers with printing needs, and proffer rental-mailbox real estate.

Laura Paul Gallery is a boutique with two driving ambitions: to beautify abodes and to make special occasions special. Amplify your home’s aesthetics with original artwork or framing and interior-design services, or make housewarmings, weddings, or baby showers memorable and carefree with gifts or event-planning and personal-shopping services. Personalize any item, from overnight bags and cheeseboards to wax-molded wings, or pick up uniformly beloved gifts such as children’s toys and candles. Laura Paul herself may be on hand to help any befuddled buyer navigate the land of endless options as she applies her personal-shopping expertise to tricky gifting circumstances, such as what to get the clown who has every clown thing except a clown car big enough for 141 clowns.

Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
Five Star Painting's expert wall refurbishers de-stress home decoration with complete setup and teardown. Punctual professionals revamp the home's rugged exterior, scraping away loose layers and re-staining wood siding if necessary. Home husks sport lavish coats of 100%-latex paints with Emulsa-Bond, which helps paints adhere to surfaces and protects against UV rays and attacks by sentient sunlamps. Staining services stylize and weatherize decks and wooden fencing. Grime exterminators expunge mildew, algae, dirt, and salt deposits through a pressure-washing solution of 10:1 bleach to detergent. The all-around handypersons also wash windows and hang holiday lights or clean Santa impersonators out of chimneys during the holidays. Prior to painting interiors, Five Star's painters move or drape drop cloths over all area rugs, furniture, and indoor anthills and ensure a smooth finish by spackling tiny holes and cracks.

In winter months, patrons can stow away unusable jet skis and canoes, and during the summertime, they can keep snowmobiles and giant snowmen out of the way and unharmed for next year's use.
