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.

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.

But eventually, we didn’t have any rooms left (well, there is the studio bathroom, and the second story organization, and the garage to still be dealt with, but I digress), soo… we […]

{ a laundry room }

It seems that in January, everyone is seeking a clean fresh start. Be it going back to the gym, eating fresh healthy food, making new business plans, organizing every messy closet in the house, you name it, it’s a bit purifying after the decadence of the holidays. So how about starting 2012 off with a […]

{ a new rug. }

Okay, so I blinked, and somehow the month of July was over. Poof! Woosh! Kerplunk! Gone. Please don’t tell me (much as I love fall) that summer is half over already. I just need a bit more time. Anyway, lots of catchup to do with you here! We’ve been printing, working like gangbusters in our […]

staircase {reveal}

Okay so, yeah, it’s been a while since I left you dangling in the middle of our staircase project, unpainted and unfinished. We just FINALLY had Matt install the new rail last week, so now I’m ready to show it to you! You like it? I love it!! Here are a few sweet details… Doesn’t […]

a hint of autumn.

What can I say? A whole season has changed since we talked last (sorry to leave you hanging all the way since Labor Day weekend, friend!).  Bye bye Summer (which for California was short), hello Fall!  For me that means jeans, tractors, crunchy leaves, great morning runs and crisp evenings. Not to mention the fabulous […]
