Since setting up shop in 1881, The Day Publishing Company has earned a reputation for journalistic integrity, amassing numerous awards and remaining one of the few publishers to operate as a public trust. The company produces the printed and online editions of The Day, a daily periodical dedicated to the happenings of southeastern Connecticut. Sports and entertainment sections track local and national figures, and the business section compiles up-to-the-minute commerce headlines alongside stock quotes. Each issue also includes such newspaper mainstays as coupons, job postings, and real-estate listings, and weekly features crop up in the paper's Sunday edition, which doubles as a projectile with which to threaten demonically possessed paperboys from the next town over.
Photo Card Creations is a leading online retailer for photo cards, invitations, and announcements, giving save-the-dates and season's greetings a personal stamp of elegantly un-pixelated digital portraiture. Since 2001, the custom creations have given couples, families, and solo heroes of the printed greeting a vast canvas on which to frame their valiant visages, with body language-enhanced thank you cards, warmly grinning invitations, and fatally cute cards to commemorate tiny new humans. All cards are printed on cardstock that, at a thick 100 lbs., is a bit self-conscious about its weight, but delivers a reliably sturdy greeting all the same. Cards for any occasion come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and designs, including hard-to-find watercolor and hand-torn-edge cards ($2.20–$2.35 each), panel insert cards ($2.05–$2.20 each), or a classic folded linen card in either cream or white ($2.10–$2.35 each).

The photographic wizards at Winkflash test their equipment every day to ensure that their photo books, gifts, canvas prints, posters, and photo prints look crisp and clear. Photo prints come on Fuji Crystal Archive paper in either a glossy or a matte finish depending on the innate shininess of the people depicted. Shutterbugs have the option of adding a white border to prints, which classes up pictures of swear-word conventions, and Winkflash’s free back-printing service personalizes the dorsal side of photos with a few choice words chosen from the picture-side's thousand. The unlimited image storage available to Winkflash users is completely free, as is the image-sharing technology that makes it easy for recent vacationers to show their friends pictures of the inside of their car.
