Hot Off the Presses

Custom-designed letterpress business cards printed by The Mandate Press.

In celebration of the two-month anniversary of this little blog, Ryan and I treated ourselves to a little something fun.

The past two months of writing and photographing our adventures have been incredible, to say the least. We are more in love with New York than ever, more in love with each other than ever, and more in love with blogging than ever. (Except for the fact that I now need a new external hard drive to store all of the photos we’ve taken!)

We get so excited for every new adventure, every new post, and every new comment. So, for those of you who have been reading from the start (and even those of you who are new), thank you for your continued support and feedback. We have a lot more exciting things planned for this space (more giveaways, anyone?) and quite frankly, we can’t wait!

Anyway, back to our anniversary gift.

Letterpress business cards printed by The Mandate Press.

With the help of the lovely folks at The Mandate Press, we designed and ordered letterpress business cards. They just arrived yesterday and they are beautiful.

If you need anything (anything!) printed, please take a look at Mandate. They were fantastic to work with and their portfolio makes me drool. I mean, just look at this incredible announcement.

These cards will make things so much easier to explain the next time someone asks us why we’re taking pictures of them on the beach (see Rockaway Beach), photographing every single dish of a tasting menu (see Eleven Madison Park), wandering into a Bushwick warehouse to drink moonshine (see Kings Country Distillery), or creeping along the sidelines of a polo field (see Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic).

To many, many more years of happy blogging!

– Laura

  2. Dear Smith & Ratlill
    I often read your blog and this morning I understand it is 2 month old. You are doing very well, it is very nice and esthetic. For me you live in Paris it is like an open window on NYC !
    By visiting your blog I started blogging as well (, not as seriously as you but just to try the publishing tool the spirit of blogging. I specially appreciate your comment regarding the business card and will probably make the relation with others so much easy. Keep going.
