FastFrame first germinated in Europe before spreading to Japan, Brazil, Australia, and the United States. A trained local helms each of the 300 locations, and guarantees every design for 30 days and the craftsmanship for a lifetime. Artisans crown original works of art and prints with ornate mouldings. They also store historical artifacts and three-dimensional memorabilia in shadow boxes. FastFrame’s team has even been known to frame sports equipment, plasma-screen televisions, and childhood homes.
Simply put, the Rhino Tree Service team is passionate about the preservation of trees. They also understand the danger that damaged, diseased, and dead trees pose to people, buildings, and vehicles. The green-thumbed grounds crew typically removes trees piece by piece—as opposed to hacking and yelling "Timber!" at unsuspecting passersby—to avoid damaging customers' lawns. Customers also call on Rhino Tree Service for other landscaping projects, including tree trimming, land clearing, and stump grinding.
The technicians at Fabulous Floors restore a sleek sheen to hardwood flooring with speedy resurfacing services, all of which are usually completed within a few hours. Without sanding away floor material or leaving noxious dust particles, the staff buffs out nicks and scratches and conditions each floor to drool cleaning solution at the ring of a bell. A final finish of polyurethane comes in a choice of gloss, semigloss, or satin polish to ensure that floors glimmer long into the future. With a proper seal, hardwood flooring is more easily cleaned and may reduce the buildup of allergens and thieving beavers too lazy to find their own wood.
Bring a project to Carter House Gallery & Framing and you’ll be presented with a seemingly endless selection of materials—the shop boasts more than 2,500 frames and 2,000 different mattes. As the on-site gallery (with pieces from both local and national artists) suggests, the team can expertly frame a variety of artworks and photographs. However, their projects aren’t limited to traditional subjects; in addition to memorabilia such as jerseys, Carter House’s team can frame flat screen televisions and digital photo frames. They can also restore family photographs that faded after people hung them in their car windows so they could use the carpool lane.
