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.

{ the original christmas card }

Popping in here with a short little bit of nostalgia for your midweek. Did you know that one of the world’s first Christmas cards sold this past weekend in London? It sold for over $6800 bucks, which is a bargain in my book. As Matt and I were reading the article last night, we did […]

wild ink press is hiring!

Well, gosh. 2013 has been an amazing year for us here at Wild Ink Press. We’ve gone from having one part-time assistant to three(!) plus a printing intern. Which latter-mentioned intern/printer we sadly had to say goodbye to this fall (we will miss you, Josh!). All of this printing and business expansion has made us […]
