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.

it’s bathtime, um, again.

Howdy to you all on this rainy yet fine MLK day! I’m back to give you a glimpse of the guest bath plans I alluded to earlier. If you recall (and you should be able to because it was, well, only two posts ago) we are attempting the impossible and biting off two bathroom renovations […]

a case of the drizzlies.

It’s a gray and almost rainy Monday.  Which means it looks exactly the same as last week did, and the week before.  With all of this gray, don’t you think we’d get some plain old rain, or some sunny and coveted sunshine?  Don’t get me wrong, it’s all very pretty: {view from our dining room […]

it’s bathtime.

Happy 2010, folks!!  We’re back, drummed up, ready to go, and have already leapt (WordPress doesn’t think this is a word.  Think again, great blog machine!!) both feet first into the new year. It’s only the 7th day of this fine new decade, but we are already currently working on: weddings, business cards, a special […]
