Affordable Royalty Free Stock Photography
iStock is our preferred vendor for royalty free stock photography because images generally range between $1 and $25, depending on resolution/file type. Their library is HUGE, their search function is easy to use, and while you're searching for an image, you can save it to your "lighbox" for easy collaboration and organization. Purchase a small bank of credits and use them as you need.
Simple Online Backup - Unlimited Amounts of Data for about $4/month
FREE TRIAL: Carbonite is super inexpensive, easy to use and continually works in the background without hogging your system resources. You can backup unlimited amounts of data for the same low cost. 

Install it, select which files/folders you want backed-up and that's it!  Easy right-clicking lets you select or deselect files for backup. Colored indicators tell you if an item is scheduled for backup or is successfully backed-up. You set it once and forget it.

Don't get discouraged if you have a lot of data to backup and it tells you it'll take several days to complete the initial backup. I did at first, until I realized how it works  --- in the background without hogging resources ... you don't even know it's working. I've tried a lot of backup systems and love this one the best -- by far.

I was introduced to The Queensboro Shirt Company while placing numerous orders for one of my REALTOR clients, and then used them myself when my husband started his service-based company. The Queensboro Shirt Company has been in the business of quality custom shirts for over 30 years. Since their early beginnings, they've expanded their product line as well as added some really great online tools to help their customers "visualize" their custom products. 

For example, with my first order for my husband's company, I had a hard time picturing how the logo colors would look on different colored shirts. With simple mouse clicks, I could change my colors in the design area, including the logo image, logo text color, tagline color, shirt color, etc., to see how it all looked together. They have specialized products, too. For example, my husband works with a lot of water. They have special T-Shirts and Polos that "capture water and wick it into the air". This will help him stay dryer. They have more than shirts:  caps, totes, computer bags, blankets, aprons, scarves and more. Also, they have great guarantees ... if I don't like what I receive, I return it ... even though it's custom. They also back their quality with their Industry-Unique Unconditional Ten-Year Guarantee. Low minimum orders and they offer both custom embroidery and custom print items.
