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.

welcome to wild ink press, elizabeth!

We are so pleased to announce that we found the perfect studio assistant/guru. When we put out our little notice for hire, we had no idea we would receive more than one dozen completely qualified applicants for the jobs! We’re talking enthusiastic, interesting, loaded with a design degree…

Thank you all so much for your interest. It was hard. But in the end, one clearly stood out as an opportunity that was too good for us to refuse. We are proud to welcome to the Wild Ink Press team: Elizabeth Quivey!

Probably most of you Chicoans know her: she spends her spare time working at the North State Symphony and generally making sure everything runs smoothly with the arts. Oh, and did I mention a graphic designer who graduated with highest honors and loves paper? Yeah, we’re pretty lucky to have her on board!

Anyway. I’m excited. We’re busy organizing the shop storage and about to launch into the great big pile of work that is Stationery Show 2012! Fun, fun, fun!
