In 2010, a friend of mine told Ted Harrington of Terrapin Stationers that he should reach out to me about his century old engraving business. Our mutual friend thought Ted’s company would be of interest to ACL. It was indeed.

I’m a Big Fan. I own a stationery business in mid-town called terrapin stationers. the website is lame and not functioning yet. I think you would really appreciate the 100 year old engraving presses we use to produce stationery and invites. mostly for fashion clients. If you would like to come over and see the shop, it would be great to show you what we do.

Ted, Thanks for your email. I was traveling when you sent it and in the madness of getting back to work I forgot to respond, my apologies. Your company sounds amazing — I would love to come and check out the shop. Would sometime next week work for you?
A few weeks later I went to check out Terrapin and eventually this was published.
