The walls of Rage Grafix's show room sport a rainbow of sweatshirts, T-shirts, and hats lines, each proudly displaying the emblems of local high schools and the Iowa Hawkeyes. The bevy of memorabilia and casual apparel—available in sizes from infant to 6XL adult to XS klingon—flaunts the university's iconic black-and-gold color scheme alongside logos of area school teams, including the City High Little Hawks, the West High Trojans, the Solon Spartans, and the Clear Creek-Amana Clippers. Staffers also man an onsite screenprinting-and-embroidery facility, where they forge custom signs, business cards, and clothing for clubs and events such as bar crawls, tailgating, and pickup games of duck, duck, goose.

The grooming staff at Pawz Playstation takes an unusual approach to put pups at ease. Whether it's for a toe-to-tail treatment or just a nail trim, the groomer starts with play time. That play time was so popular that, due to client demand, the grooming salon expanded into a boarding and daycare center. Now, dogs spend their days romping around indoor playgrounds playing Tug of War and chess. By night, they bunk down in spacious rooms big enough for three to share.
