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.

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 […]

knights and dragons and castles, oh my!

Hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween last night! We most certainly enjoyed it! Little kids + crazy dress-up + candy = SO much fun to watch. As promised, I’m back with a run-down of the boys costumes. I’m stickin’ with a theme for as long as these kids will let me (until […]

gone camping { 2013 }

We managed to eke out a camping trip at the end of summer, right before the start of harvest. I have to admit, camping with three super young boys is something of a slog. Nobody to help pack, carry, load or organize, SO MUCH STUFF to bring (pack and plays, diapers, booster seats, kid carry […]

kip turns two!

I don’t mean to OD you on the kid posts this week – but tomorrow marks the second birthday of our youngest (and the first that we get to spend with him, last birthday he was still in Korea). So, humor me. We haven’t even had this little big guy for twelve full months yet, […]

kip – a tennis at last!

This is Kip. Two short Mondays ago, he became the last Tennis (we’d like to think, anyway). Shall we move in a little closer? He’s not so sure about this nature stuff. When we told him the family spends most of the summer outside, he was like “really? even me?” He loves tractors and trucks […]

{ meet eric kippum }

Well, I may not have mentioned this on the blog (although I think I tweeted a bit about it), but about a week and a half ago we became a family of five. That’s right, five. My jaw still drops at that number. We flew over to Korea and brought back home this little guy… […]
