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.

{ a fall walk. }

…You should really take one this weekend. Really. (Well, if you’re in the West or even the Midwest you should… those of you in the Northeast – I checked the weather and you may just want to snuggle up with some hot cocoa and a roaring fire). It’s just the perfect weather right now. It’s […]

peter, peter, pumpkin eater.

In the world of cake vs. pie (one of the most serious debates of our time), I come down firmly on the pie side. Pie is to dessert what Grace Kelly was to fashion: timeless and elegant. If you doubt my affinity toward pie, you can look at previous posts: apple, cherry, ricotta, shepherd’s (x […]

giraffa camelopardalis.

Hope you had a fun and safe Halloween weekend. I think kids (under 5) make the best trick-or-treaters. They aren’t jaded (yet), are not picky about what type of candy they get, and they are just so darn cute in their costumes. Speaking of costumes… meet giraffa camelopardalis (that would be Cam as a giraffe). […]
