Ted Harrington

Ted Harrington of Terrapin Stationers provides us one of our favorite sassy, witty, profanity-filled, and down right awesome stationery collections - perfect for sending to our loved ones (or enemies). Ted tells us that his alter ego is a "15-year-old boy with a filthy mouth," which explains the "Bad Bitch," "Fuck Off," "K.Thanks.Bye," and "Thanks for all the shit you do" cards Terrapin offers. Ted and the brand have been featured in publications such as GQ, Esquire, Details, Life & Times, and many more. But despite the bad-assery at Terrapin, Ted is a kind, friendly, and very talented man we know you should know.
