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.

wrapping it up neatly {2011}

In keeping with last year’s new tradition of a good year end summary (see 2010 right here), I thought I’d review some of the blog highlights of 2011: what you, dear readers, liked the most. This is based on comments and google analytics stats. Funny thing is, it doesn’t always line up with what I […]

mix your own paint and other tales.

The laundry room was the last room in our house to receive the magical remodel touch. Mostly because, well, it’s a laundry room. But eventually, we didn’t have any rooms left (well, there is the studio bathroom, and the second story organization, and the garage to still be dealt with, but I digress), soo… we […]

{ a laundry room }

It seems that in January, everyone is seeking a clean fresh start. Be it going back to the gym, eating fresh healthy food, making new business plans, organizing every messy closet in the house, you name it, it’s a bit purifying after the decadence of the holidays. So how about starting 2012 off with a […]

instagr.am { the month of december }

The last instagram round-up of 2011! December was a busy, happy, stressful blur… { Have you ever planned a progressive-progressive dinner? Tons of fun…. tons of work. } { Our first Heidelberg die-cutting experience. And yes, why haven’t we done this sooner? } { Apparently letterpress is not the only type of “impression” I like […]
