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.

merry merry christmas!

Wishing you and yours a Christmas filled with love, family and friends. (Hopefully all three at the same time). We couldn’t get a family photoshoot pulled together this year (who am I kidding, we haven’t even started writing our Christmas cards yet), so here is a snap from a summer weekend at the family cabin… […]

my journey to me.

Today I’m going to share with you a part of my journey. Now, this isn’t normally scheduled blog content (not that the blog has had any content at all recently, doh!), so if you want to ignore this post and wait to come back for more building remodel, cool stationery and other designy stuff, feel […]

national stationery show 2014 { the recap }

As promised, a (much) delayed recap of our trip to the National Stationery Show this May! 2014 was our fourth year exhibiting. Crazy, I know, but time does fly when you are having fun. We used the same booth walls as we have since 2011 (how’s that for longevity?), but as usual, they got a […]

playing catch up.

Hi there, friends. I’ve missed you. It’s interesting how hard it is to return to a blog that’s gone silent. I almost feel like I somehow lost my blog “voice” – as in, what do I say now, and how do I say it? In April, things got very, very busy as we had Spring […]
