I don't know how I would set up my "Services offered" in OC since OC is all about categories that have Products. My services really don't have products. Services include: screen printing, embroidery, graphic design, digital gifts, etc.
Any help is appreciated.

That would be incorrect. A service, in this case, would be a defined class that contains an infinity of subsets.
one of a possibly exhaustive set of classes among which all things might be distributed.

Thou doth pontificate too much me thinks.
As far as opencart is concerned, a service is listed as a product, the type of service is the category.
If you want infinite subsets, then leave a free form textbox and use a "quote me" mod or use options.

Then that logic would be flaw since a category is not a product. If a category would be a product, the category ID would be invoked along with the product ID when a customer adds a product to the cart and even identified in the order. The Opencart core installation does not provide this functionality, so far. If a category can be a product before the product is added to the cart without the category ID, then the logic has been contradicted since a product on the shelf is about making the sale with the objective on completing as many orders within the same year.

Besides, if a category would be a product, OC would already provides its functionality from the admin - > catalog - > categories page in order to define a category as a product out-of-the-box in the first place which, even on this day, does not provide the functionality.

It's a good thing I never said anything about a category being a product

It would seem you were referring to this analogy:
Service as a product (SaaP)
Although, while this is indeed the case, it should of had been clarified with your explanation to avoid the confusion. In addition to these terms, a service is not a product. It can be considered a product as per the as a mentions in the quote but is not distinct to a product directly.

In the database programming world, it means that an equal (=) is not identical to the LIKE statement which is obviously true.

That being said, a service is not a product. It is considered a reference to a product, according to SaaP.

Quote from Google:
Equity and Equality Are Not Equal. There is a common misconception that equity and equality mean the same thing — and that they can be used interchangeably, especially when talking about education. But the truth is they do not — and cannot. Yes, the two words are similar, but the difference between them is crucial.
Also known as: ascertain definition.
