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.

{ holiday open studio hours }

It’s ba-ack! Our fourth annual series of Holiday Open Studio hours! We’ve enjoyed our open studio hours so much over the past few years. 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 […]

dinner for 40.

As I mentioned in my last post, we celebrated Matt’s birthday with a rather large dinner party. 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 […]
