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.

dinner party invitations.

You only turn 40 once, so I wanted to throw Matt a fantastic party to celebrate the milestone. My husband is generally a super-social outgoing guy, and while my idea of a good time is cooking a 5 course meal for two, his would involve a large dinner party, the “more the merrier”. And so […]

I’ve actually never shared our business cards here on the blog. Or any of our branding, really. Yet we print a new iteration […]

z & v olive oil { 2011 }

We had the pleasure of designing and printing the limited edition Christmas Olive Oil tags for Zucchini and Vine again this year (you can see last year’s tag here, and the year before here). We’ve done fine cotton, we’ve done rustic manila tags… and this year we went even a little more rustic: chipboard.  Inspired […]

from the archives: a wedding suite.

I’m very behind on showing you how our custom work is going. Every once in a while I am able to grab my camera and shoot a few pictures of a custom job or two that we have done. It seems funny that after drawing the artwork, having it plated, printing, trimming and lovingly packaging […]

{ red & brown } save the dates

I have not been able to share very much stationery with you lately. It’s not that we haven’t been printing!! We have!! We’ve even taken the plunge and hired a part time employee to print with us, so we’re printing fools, really. But all of it is top-secret, waiting for the grand reveal at this […]

tag, you’re it!

If you read this blog regularly, you probably are pretty familiar with Eikon Photography – my good friends Stella and Caryn run it as partners, and produce some beautiful work. They’ve shot such pretty things as our Grand Opening, Cam’s tractor birthday and much of the original product photography you see on the main site. […]
