Sam's Art & Framing preserves and stylishly showcases photos, prints, portraits, and memorabilia with expert care. Sam invokes more than 30 years framing experience to craft each frame by hand on the premises. Choose from thousands of molding and mat-board samples to enshrine a child's artwork or an overturned parking ticket. Framing options are virtually limitless, but as an example, about $70 can get you a 20"x24" frame with glass, backing and hanging hardware, and a basic diploma will run about $100.

Spas, gyms, wine bars. A tattoo studio, a salmon smokehouse, a recruiting company. Frank Dima has helped a long, diverse list of businesses represent themselves through film at New York Business Video Inc. These dynamic videos, which businesses put on their websites and show at special events, are as unique as the subjects themselves: they might feature interviews with owners and staff members, testimonials, footage of meetings, or—after a liberal application of blush—detailed close-ups of products.
