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.

good eats {korea}

Here’s the one sentence summary: Korea is a fantastic place to eat, but I wouldn’t want to have to wash the dishes. Seriously, these people love their banchan (side dishes)! Every single time we ate in korea, we had no less than 14 plates between us, sometimes many more. In America, our understanding of kimchi […]

there and back again {korea edition}

How does one begin a post like this? Seoul, Korea is intense, interesting, intimidating, international, and any other “i” adjective you want to add. And worth sharing on the blog, even though I normally don’t include travel stories. Let me burst your bubble right now… there are no pictures of the newest little Tennis in […]

{ red & brown } save the dates

I have not been able to share very much stationery with you lately. It’s not that we haven’t been printing!! We have!! We’ve even taken the plunge and hired a part time employee to print with us, so we’re printing fools, really. But all of it is top-secret, waiting for the grand reveal at this […]
