hello there.

Well, whaddya wanna know?  Here's the plain and simple truth:  My name is Rebekah Tennis and I love design.  I love paper, the way it feels, its weight and texture.  I love extra special touches on little things: homemade tags on gift-wrap, old stamps on an envelope, and twine on nearly everything.

My husband, business partner and all-around solid rock Matt would probably tell you that he likes tools - lots of 'em, finding the perfect way to do something, taking things apart, and precision in everything. 

So you might as well have guessed by now... we are the perfect match for an old letterpress studio. Together we farm rice and have three adorable and active boys ages 5 and under.  This keeps us fairly busy, but whenever we have a spare moment, we crank up our 102 year old Chandler and Price platen press and pull some prints, or whip out a card line on the Heidelberg. 

There's more, oh yes, there IS more - but that's what this blog is for.  Take a look around, get to know us, our great town of Chico, California and our beautiful presses.

And always.  I’ve been trying to use this entire month to reflect and purposefully think of specific blessings and privileges in my life. There are general blessings… freedom, my goodness!  And I want to remember those who are enslaved.  Family, a […]

{ on the edge. }

I’m sure you’re all as insanely busy today as we are… rushing around, family, food prep, travel, you name it.  But I wanted to share with you a sweet little project we just finished and shipped off. Edge painting… I love it.  It may be trendy right now, but I think it really has a […]

dinner on a dime: leek and potato soup

Leeks have been my 2009 food obsession.  I have to admit, before this year, I had not really been exposed to them, and definitely had never cooked with them.  But we went to Paris this past spring on our anniversary, and let me tell you, leeks were everywhere!  And they were so delicious.  I’ve spent […]
