When you care enough to send the very best… Nothing does it quite like a FUCK OFF calling card from Terrapin Stationers.
A family run business since 1913, Terrapin Stationers is one of the few engraved stationery companies still operating in the U.S. today. Run by Ted Harrington, the operation is alive an kicking right here in midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street, using engraving machinery that dates back to the early 20th Century. They produce stationery, cards, calling cards and custom cards for whatever you want. In these Twittery times, an increasingly popular card is the calling/business card with just a Twitter handle on it, e.g. @GEORGEHAHN (you’re following me, right?).
Everything at Terrapin is made with the highest quality cotton and card stock, then exactingly pressed to form the sharply defined, raised impressions that have made engraving the preferred method of high-end printing for centuries. In these digital times when unrefined punks think an email or (worse) text message is an appropriate “thank you” note, Terrapin reminds us that there is nothing quite like a handwritten note on exquisitely engraved stock – a mark of true refinement.
The “FUCK OFF” calling card, which I hand out regularly, is part of Terrapin’s “F” Collection, which also includes note cards, mini cards and buck slip pads. A pack of 20 “FUCK OFF” calling cards will set you back $20.
