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.

Lemme ‘splain. This is our breakfast nook: The first (and only time) you may have possibly laid eyes on it (unless you’ve come […]

before and after: our new office.

As promised, here is the rest of our little office refresh!! Now, I’ve never really shown you the office before, right? The only spot it’s ever popped up on the blog is in this Christmas whole house tour. And as I recall, the image I put up there was the “keepin’ it real” part of […]

a big boy room. { finally! }

Ahem. Announcing a before-and-after room reveal! One big boy room! Well, it only took 21 months. Really. We started with planning and a mood board back in January of 2011. I showed you the before (a bland and non functioning guest room). We plunked along, redoing the floors (diy install), oiling them, finally finding the […]

{ 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 […]

rolling up our diy sleeves…

…and getting down to business! We don’t have a lot of time to lollygag on this project, it’s a busy spring, so let’s jump right in!! Here is the upstairs room “before” in its guest room format. You’ll just have to trust me that it’s usually neater than this, which is two minutes before we […]
