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.

Now, this isn’t normally scheduled blog content (not that the blog has had any content at all recently, doh!), so if you want to ignore this post and wait to come back for more building remodel, cool stationery and other designy stuff, feel […]

Remember this day-trippin’ post from a couple […]

valentine’s night in.

Happy Valentine’s day, friends! More importantly, happy Friday! Do you have big plans for the night/weekend? Matt and I love to eschew traditional Valentine responsibilities (no big dinner out, no expectations of a romantic gift, simple fresh grower’s bunch of grocery store flowers, etc). We skip the pressure, the baby sitter $$$ (if your sitter […]

take a hike! { lakes basin }

I know it’s going to be a hot one this weekend in Chico (108°F, anyone?), but I’ve just been feeling the outdoorsy pull lately. With summer close to half over, as our school year starts in August(!) we are trying to capture as much sun and adventure as we can. Swims, bike rides, hikes, and […]

kip – a tennis at last!

This is Kip. Two short Mondays ago, he became the last Tennis (we’d like to think, anyway). Shall we move in a little closer? He’s not so sure about this nature stuff. When we told him the family spends most of the summer outside, he was like “really? even me?” He loves tractors and trucks […]
