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.

Last sneak peek for you all. What would a year be without a new textile design? That tactile yumminess… In three colors red, blue, and green, and inspired by the animal embroidery of the Otomi Indian tribe in Mexico, this is a fun complement to our vibrant textile line. And another bonus? Gift Wrap. 5 […]

new at the show: { quotations }

The Quotations collection may be the set that Matt and I started the earliest and worked on the longest. We felt like it was a good idea and wanted to do proper justice to it. I tracked down all of the quotations, but Matt had the genius of putting all the punch lines on the […]

new at the show: { languages }

Up this morning is a goofy little series of cards. I have no idea how well they will do. Sometimes you have to create something just because you like it, right? I present: Languages. At least, the ones that I know. Think about it, how many languages can you say happy birthday in? Well, I […]
