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.

Which latter-mentioned intern/printer we sadly had to say goodbye to this fall (we will miss you, Josh!). All of this printing and business expansion has made us […]

It’s rained more often than not, but so many of you came out from the community anyway to see our shop and presses and it is very invigorating to connect directly […]

a bit of business { cards }

It’s Friday, I’m sure people are getting ready to head into the weekend (don’t you love short workweeks?) but I thought I’d pop in with something letterpress-related (fancy that?) for your afternoon. I’ve actually never shared our business cards here on the blog. Or any of our branding, really. Yet we print a new iteration […]

all star printer’s day.

A couple of weeks ago, Matt and I had the privilege of being able to share in something completely rad – a little letterpress printers get-together at Full Circle Press.  Out of the blue, I got an email from Bev (who works there) asking if we’d be interested in coming to a little shindig they […]
