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.

our bathroom { in cottages & bungalows magazine }

Yesterday I had the pleasure of walking into Lowes and picking up a copy of Cottages & Bungalows magazine which, on page 67, has our very own black and white guest bathroom. How exciting is that!?! If you had told me three years ago as we started our remodel that our home would end up […]

from the archives: a wedding suite.

I’m very behind on showing you how our custom work is going. Every once in a while I am able to grab my camera and shoot a few pictures of a custom job or two that we have done. It seems funny that after drawing the artwork, having it plated, printing, trimming and lovingly packaging […]

{ a new rug. }

Okay, so I blinked, and somehow the month of July was over. Poof! Woosh! Kerplunk! Gone. Please don’t tell me (much as I love fall) that summer is half over already. I just need a bit more time. Anyway, lots of catchup to do with you here! We’ve been printing, working like gangbusters in our […]
