Great Businesses!

I was planning a baby shower for my sister recently and had some great experiences with businesses.  First, I wanted to get a picture of my sister's ultra-sound framed for everyone at the shower to sign. I work as a freelance event planner in Atlanta and I have very specific things in mind I want when planning events. This time, I wanted an 8x10 light blue matting for a picture. I needed it custom cut and went to some of the larger retail chain stores. The turn around time was terrible. They said 9 days with a rush. The price wasn't anything great either. I was ready to give up when I thought I would run into The Great Frame Up off W Crossville Rd in Roswell. The guy in the store was friendly and cut it right while I was standing there. The best part was he didn't even charge me, he just said "have a great baby shower". It looked perfect.

Another great business that I worked with for this shower was Oriental Trading. We ordered some small gift bags to put the blue candy in as favors. When they arrived they were too small. We called to return the bags and the rep. on the phone told us they would credit the card back, but to keep the favors and donate them to a school or church.

There are some really great business out there.
