At Big Frog Custom T-Shirts and More, with franchised locations across more than 13 states, graphic designers translate customers' visions into single items or fleets of custom shirts, which are priced by style and quantity and typically ready to wear within 24 hours. The designers emblazon myriad-colored torso apparel—such as blue-hued T-shirts, orange-hued two-button henleys, or cellophane-hued pullover hoodies—with customer-chosen designs, as well as customizing accessories such as tote bags and mousepads.
For their chosen graphic, clients can opt for stock designs, bring in treasured images saved on a flash drive or emblazoned on a highway billboard, or enlist staffers to transform visionary ideas into custom artwork. To circumnavigate the problem of cracking or peeling appliqués, employees dye images straight into fabric with high-resolution direct-to-garment printing and allow customers unlimited use of colors at no additional charge.
The open-armed and stylish folks at Turn Style Consignment Stores know a gently used gem when they see one. That's why they faithfully find a new home for second-hand clothing, accessories, and home furnishings via their stores in the Twin City area, the Phoenix Valley, and throughout Colorado. Many of their shoes and handbags hail from designer brands such as Gucci and Chanel, and their policy prohibits anything that's not from a designer, better department, or specialty story.
Entrepreneur and frame designer David Ulrich has cleared the vision of Twin Cities citizens since 1969.

There, teams of certified opticians accurately assess prescriptions and fashion single-vision, progressive, or bifocal lenses in the in-house lab. Clients confer with the staff to design custom frames or choose from the shop's thousands of one-of-a-kind frames, vintage cat's-eye styles, and double monocles.
