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.

But top this one folks… […]

the tiny christmas tree.

Only have a brief snatch of time here, but I wanted to share with you the cutest little Christmas tree. We made Cameron a tree last year out of a rosemary bush (see it here), and this year he was very excited to continue the tradition of “my own tree.” The tree itself we picked […]

did you bring the wreath?

“…the Merry Christmas wreath for the window.” Okay, I may or may not have seen  It’s a Wonderful Life last night while coding this blog post. (Sheepish grin.) ‘Tis the season. Speaking of wreaths (note smooth segue), I hope you aren’t sick of my wreath tutorials, because I have another one coming your way! Ordinarily […]

Here it is! My clip on the Nate Show, which airs today! I can’t believe they posted it on the internet. So fortunate, because now I get to share it with you… And then here’s the behind the scenes holiday tips video (yes, my face is a little “glowy” aka sweaty): I had to think […]
