The creative team of framers and decorators at Foursided stocks stacks of creative greeting cards and paraphernalia. The self-described "frame nerds" do more than cultivate a collection of stationery by planting paper seeds in nearby printing presses; they also place prints and objects into frames and furnish homes with original pieces by a handful of favored artists. Staffers also buy and sell vintage flash cards, puzzle pieces, and letter tiles harvested from a variety of objects.

Owner Todd Mack has worked in framing for 20 years, and he draws on his vast experience when custom mounting a broad spectrum of pieces. Vintage and recycled frames, archival framing, and shadow boxes are a few of the options available. Mack's interest in shadow boxes makes perfect sense to visitors who take a look at his own art, which assembles found photos and objects in forms that aren't always 2-D.

On HGTV's Urban Oasis, interior designer Vern Yip ornamented a luxury apartment with prints gathered from Foursided's expansive collection. In that collection, colorful shelves of letter blocks, maps, corks, baby-doll heads, and harmonicas turn personal, nostalgic objects into stylish new decorations. Candles, jewelry, and books round out the gift selections.

As VCRs collect dust in garages and home movie projectors find themselves retrofitted into spinning wheels, it gets harder to access past footage of birthdays and holidays that are trapped on analog formats. Fortunately, the technicians of Y NOT 3 Video Productions specialize in scraping memories from their celluloid prisons and converting them to usable digital formats. That expertise stems from their extensive knowledge of video and audio systems, which can also be turned toward projects such as producing corporate commercials or video love letters to pets. With their skills in video editing and broadcast-level equipment, the team also cuts together attractive reels with specials effects, graphics, and eye-catching transitions.
