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.

daytrippin’: vina & new clairvaux.

One of the things Matt and I have always loved to do together is take day trips. When we lived in Sacramento one of our favorites was to drive up to Sutter Creek and meander back home, driving through Dry Town and stopping at the Davis Ranch in Sloughhouse, truly a lovely little bit of […]

beautiful butchart gardens

Our yard is currently in the process of being revamped (raised vegetable beds are going in today, yay!) so I’ve got gardens on the brain lately. If you haven’t noticed from my pinterest pinning tendencies. So in honor of gardens and all things green – I’m pulling from the photo archives today to show you […]
