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.

Remember this day-trippin’ post from a couple […]

instagr.am { the month of february }

Welp. February is toast. Although we’ve been getting happy rain lately, February was a mild, mild month overall (sorry to all you blizzard sufferers). In fact, this is what our downtown looked like on February 1st(!): { Downtown trees in bloom. Earliest spring ever. } { Remember last month? With the beer? I lied, apparently. […]

valentine’s night in.

Happy Valentine’s day, friends! More importantly, happy Friday! Do you have big plans for the night/weekend? Matt and I love to eschew traditional Valentine responsibilities (no big dinner out, no expectations of a romantic gift, simple fresh grower’s bunch of grocery store flowers, etc). We skip the pressure, the baby sitter $$$ (if your sitter […]

instagr.am { the month of december }

Please excuse the blog silence. I’ve been trying not to beat myself up about it! So many things have been happening (along with many sicknesses) and sometimes, just sometimes, the internet world and the real world do not get to collide for a while. But!! If you’ve stuck with me, thank you. I’ve had an […]
