The quadrilateral connoisseurs at the frugal framer perform all production in-house to ensure that posters, memorabilia, and artwork are encased in the finest shells. The skilled craftspeople specialize in custom framing, a process in which they design, size, and construct picture cocoons based on the dimensions, characteristics, and food allergies of the artwork. Customers have their choice of frames ($5+/ft.), mats, glazing, and moulding material. Box experts can forge a standard 8”x10” frame with matting for laundry folding certificates ($40 on average), or construct a 16”x20” edifice with a wooden frame, mat, backing, and regular glazing for prized post-it note ideas ($80 average). The frugal framer will also equip a 26”x34” piece of art, raised and floated on a rag mat with spacers ($300 average), or enshrine pieces in specialty casings such as shadow boxes with UV-blocking glass.

For more than 35 years, 2-D ultrasound technology—which translates bouncing sound waves into digital images—has allowed parents to meet the newest members of their family a little ahead of schedule. Today, technology has advanced: 3-D ultrasounds reveal tiny hands, feet, and faces in full-color stills, and 4-D ultrasounds record live streaming video of fetuses in real time so that parents can make their children into prenatal Hollywood stars. Under the supervision of a board-certified physician, diagnostic medical sonographers with more than 10 years of experience reveal womb interiors while up to six adults sit and watch the 37-inch widescreen monitor. 2-D technology allows parents to listen to small heartbeats, and, if desired, lets sonographers determine gender when the baby-to-be is 15 weeks in the making. Stills from 2-D and 3-D scans and movies from 4-D scans can be recorded for parents to take home. All repeat sessions receive 10–20% off, so parents can come back to make sure their little ones are growing strong and refraining from playing video games all day.
