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.

Aloha, there friends and readers. As you may have guessed from the title, we slipped away for a little family (and extended family, actually) vacation last month. I actually hadn’t planned on sharing any photos on the blog from the trip… but I was going through my iPhoto account, and I realized three things: one) […]

instagr.am { the month of january }

Time for the monthly photo dump!! A brief ode to January: Thou wert… some parts shut-in…and some travel. some vacation…and some work.    some eating…and some lose-your-appetite-icky-realities of life.           Ah, you know us, a hefty mix of all. { homemade cioppino (that’s the discard bowl): California winter at its finest. } { a warm […]
