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.

May you not have it wished on you by your worst enemy. In a bit of weekend news […]

good eats: kauai.

You all may have thought I was finished with my little Kauai vacation round-up, but knowing Matt and I (foodies!!) it is simply not possible to be done without mentioning the amazing food we ate over on that little island. To start with, incredible sashimi-grade ahi is everywhere on the island. I’m not kidding. Gas […]

all star printer’s day.

A couple of weeks ago, Matt and I had the privilege of being able to share in something completely rad – a little letterpress printers get-together at Full Circle Press.  Out of the blue, I got an email from Bev (who works there) asking if we’d be interested in coming to a little shindig they […]

instagr.am { the month of february }

Here we go… the photo journal continues! Let’s review February, shall we? { over-sized headphones never looked so good. } { the men in my life always look dapper on Sundays. } { speaking of Sundays, I’m currently crushing on this “deconstructed” eggs benedict from Beatniks. } { when a little boy asks for a […]
