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.

master bathroom { before }

Here are the “before” pictures of our master bath!  Actually, they’re almost during pictures, because the tile removal had started and all of the towels etc had been cleared out when I thought “Oh no, I’ve never photographed this bathroom before, and it’s almost gone!!” So, I snapped a few pics in a hurry while […]

it’s bathtime.

Happy 2010, folks!!  We’re back, drummed up, ready to go, and have already leapt (WordPress doesn’t think this is a word.  Think again, great blog machine!!) both feet first into the new year. It’s only the 7th day of this fine new decade, but we are already currently working on: weddings, business cards, a special […]
