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.

I can tell you that apart from being all-consuming and stressful… it’s also been inspiring. The newest designs have come entirely from my sketch book. Pencil it, ink it in, scan it, tweak it slightly, and […]

oiled floors! {big boy room update}

I’m waay overdue to update you on our remodel (phase three: staircase and big boy room). I’m pretty sure I’ve just left you hanging in suspense this entire time. How have you been able to stand it? =) Seriously, we haven’t made that much progress on the room. But, the bones are done (yay!) and […]
