The licensed, uniformed, and insured technicians from Chem-Dry of Minneapolis & St. Paul use one-fifth of the water that traditional carpet-cleaning requires. This means that clients can expect dry carpets one–two hours after a service. They can also rest assured that kids and pets will be safe around Chem-Dry's proprietary, nontoxic cleaning solution.
From the corporate store to each franchise location, the staff of Max Muscle Sports Nutrition goes beyond stocking and suggesting supplements to offer health help through a variety of channels. Sales associates in the stores help to discern the optimal body aid to achieve the personal fitness goals of athletes, bodybuilders, and everyday exercisers, be they weight loss, weight gain, muscle gain, toxin-flushing, or intimidating a superhero into ripping a cumbersome collection of old phone books in half.
A certified sports-nutrition specialist can also sit down with clients to chart their age, gender, height, and basal metabolic rate to draft a comprehensive, custom nutrition plan. The written word further fortifies customers' soul cages in Max Sports and Fitness, a monthly magazine brimming with health-supplement advice and fitness tips.
Feather boas, oversize glasses, and false mustaches mounted on sticks rarely fail to get a party started. At least that’s what Picture Perfect Photo Booth's attendants count on as they lug those and other props to galas ranging from company picnics to graduation parties to family reunions. Once they've arrived and set up their black-curtained booth, partygoers can begin layering on whimsical accessories to take a silly photo or to pose as a long-lost family member just passing through town. Patrons can opt for either black-and-white or color photos, and can even customize the layout of their photo strips.
For Andy and Rachel Lee of Art and Frame World, their framing projects don't end at two-dimensional objects. Photos surround a folded American flag to depict a beloved family member in his military years. A commemorative Minnesota Twins jersey hangs with sleeves folded to show off its decorative patches. A Stratocaster guitar, signed by Jon Bon Jovi and his band, floats on mounts next to a gold record and a ruby-encrusted 8-track tape. This attention to detail is also apparent in the business's traditional frame jobs, which ensconce photographs in intricate patterns. Conservation items such as acid-free matting and UV-protective glass ensure that prized artwork is kept safe from the elements.
Universal Color's trained technicians adeptly custom-frame family heirlooms, archive precious memories, and restore dilapidated photos to display condition. Expert framers secure wobbly prints with more than 900 custom-framing options ($50+) that safeguard photos from errant baseballs and grasping plants with liberal interpretations of photosynthesis. Weathered photos can undergo light restoration, which removes stains, mends rips, and banishes acne scars ($46). Technicians archive stray imagery onto CDs ($89.99+ for up to 400 photos, plus $5.25 for an archival CD), converting photos into 1s and 0s that can be easily sorted or surreptitiously exchanged for more valuable 2s and 3s.
