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.

kip turns two!

I’m really excited to share it with you because I think it’s important to demystify this part of entertaining: planning and having events that could otherwise seem unattainable or just plain scary to pull off. I was really […]

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 […]

happy 40th, matt tennis

My dear Matty is 40 years old today. If that doesn’t make me feel old, the fact that I’ve been married to him for 10 of them should. Those of you who know Matt know that he is part funny-man, part handy-man, part close-talker, part foodie and all-around good guy. I pulled out these old […]

{ roasted cherry chocolate cake }

Well, it has been a while since we’ve had a recipe on the blog, eh? Six months at least (November 8th, to be exact)! High time we cooked something, yes? Our littlest youngest guy turned two last week. You can see his adorable Korean-inspired first birthday (last year’s dol) right here. This year we had […]
