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.

Way, way back when, I promised you details on our master bathroom remodel (remember, the one we started in January?).  Well, it’s been more than a month, and I have yet to produce anything for you.  What’s more, I haven’t even posted the after photos on THIS blog (although I had the joy of sharing […]

progress, progress {bathroom update}

It’s been eerily quiet around here on the blog.  Let’s just say the computer and I have been taking a little break from each other, much to everyone’s general satisfaction. But I thought I would pop by and say “hello” just as you were leaving for the weekend.  So hi there, friend! A bit of […]
