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.

Well, it has been a while since we’ve had a recipe on the blog, eh? Six months at least (November 8th, to be exact)! High time we cooked something, yes? Our littlest youngest guy turned two last week. You can see his adorable Korean-inspired first birthday (last year’s dol) right here. This year we had […]

national stationery show 2012 { the recap }

Happy Friday, folks! My series of “new at the show” got a bit derailed, to tell you the truth, I have even more new cards to show you, but that was all I found time to schedule on the blog before dashing off on our flight to the National Stationery Show. I was literally typing […]
