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.

Better late than never… { Before it almost burned down, we had a quiet but delightful 4th of July at the family cabin. } { In keeping with the Americana theme: local baseball.

3 year bloggiversary!

Three fantastic years. This month is my three year bloggiversary – my first post was here (August 2009). I may not be the most frequent blogger in the world (daily posting is just not going to happen), but I have blogged consistently for 36 months. With 100% my own content, I might add (this not […]
