The nationally certified professional dry cleaners at Don's Claytons have been removing mustard spots from neckties and mud stains from trousers since the Eisenhower administration. Using a patented DCI cleaning process, fabric-care experts remove grime and gravy from your shirts (around $2.48), pants (starting at $6.22), suits (around $12.47), dresses, and spats using solvents that clean without corroding fabric. They'll tackle household textiles as well, from duvets to doilies to handsewn refrigerator cozies.
Photographer Teresa Haller has meticulously trained her photo trigger finger to capture portrait posers in their most natural states, highlighting subjects in their true form without any artificial additives. High-school seniors can combine indoor and outdoor backdrops during their shoot, just in case they want their hopeful grin juxtaposed with a favorite stable-horse, a riverside sunset, or the devastation of an over-achieving science-fair volcano. Teresa also knows how to corral families, children, and newborns into the frame—adding dimension with artful diagonals, color with bouquets of marigolds, and surreality with a spotless bed of white linen on a field of green grass. Engaged couples, meanwhile, can preserve their apex of adorability in a form that's easily displayed on mantels and bookshelves.
Home Video Studio helps shape, preserve, and enhance videos that chronicle the passage of time and the growth of families. High-quality capturing codecs transpose home movies onto digital formats, bringing outdated Betamax, 8 mm, or Super 8 into the modern age, storing first steps for posterity and adjusting the prices on childhood lemonade stands for inflation. Technicians snip and shape video to one’s whims with production and postproduction assistance on wedding videos or highlight reels for college-sports scholarships. Technicians can also collaborate with patrons to weave a This is Your Life video honoring a parent or grandparent through still photographs, archival footage, and new interviews with loved ones.
