The storefront for the international network of package transport, UPS has earned a reputation for quick and convenient service, accepting packages of all sizes and loading them into trucks and planes for hassle-free ground, air, overnight, and international shipping. But one does not need a box, stamp, and delivery address to complete a task at the store. With a retinue of black-and-white- and colour-copy services, advanced printing technology, and scanning and archiving options, business owners can use the company's resources to create logos, print and bind restaurant menus, or laminate each employee's paycheck. The UPS Store also offers online printing services, which allow customers to upload their documents to the website, select from options such as size, colour, and type of paper, and then pick up their project or opt to have it delivered to their office.
The Lewiston UPS Store endows Canadian residents with an American shipping address minutes from the Lewiston-Queenstown and Rainbow bridges where customers can receive packages from cargo carriers worldwide. These savvy transport tickets spare Canadian consumers brokerage fees and the ubiquitous international shipping charges for two packages less than 70 pounds each (additional fees apply for packages of 71+ lbs.). Residents can also save change by launching their States-bound bounties from the Lewiston courier and investing their stealthy savings in a robot pen pal. In addition to ushering in a pair of eBay's best gargoyles at a reduced rate, an address in the land of the red, white, and blue forgoes the burden of skirting companies that deny shipping to the Great White North.
There are many perishables in an average household—bananas, milk, and VHS tapes, for example. So, the technicians at Lifetime Video do their part to preserve memories by clearing out those tapes before they begin to lose their quality. With 130 machines at their disposal, they transfer video content onto modern formats such as DVDs. Their services accommodate several types of tapes, from the most common VHS tapes to 8MM tape and Digital 8 tapes. The tech can handle orders of any size, and never charge customers if one of their unlabeled tapes turns out to be blank.
True to its name, The T-Shirt Factory creates thousands of T-shirts and jerseys for Buffalo-area businesses, sports teams, and organizations.

At the age of 19, photographer David Haskell made the acquaintance of an InStyle magazine editor. He recounted this story during an interview with VTalk Radio Photography Spotlight, adding, the editor invited me to “their offices in Toronto and asked if I would cover an editorial thing." Within a few weeks, Haskell started working with Revlon Canada, and ultimately landed in New York. Since then, his work has been published in more than 70 countries and his subjects have ranged from Phyllis Diller to Jay-Z.
Reflecting on his success, Haskell places special emphasis on the importance of "taking care of the people you're taking pictures of." This commitment to serving subjects reaches to the present: Regardless of whom he photographs, Haskell makes sure that his subjects feel comfortable and confident. He finds and uses light to highlight natural beauty, whether inside at his modern studio or outside at scenic landscapes or highway underpasses. His fellow photographers do the same, capturing models, fiancées, graduates, and families in shoots of various styles.
