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.

daytrippin’: table mountain & the wildlife sanctuary

It’s Spring! Hip Hip Hooray! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. We managed to pull off a weekend full of some of the best-of-the-best things that Chico has to offer for the season, and it was dee-lightful. So delightful I thought I’d share it with you. Remember this day-trippin’ post from a couple […]

new at the show: { garden greetings }

I want to kick off my 2013 National Stationery Show coverage with something completely fun. You’ve seen glimpses in previews on other websites, but here it is in its full glory on the blog. Light-hearted, whimsical, inspired by things I said as a kid (heck, Cameron can’t stop saying them since I designed this line): […]

instagr.am { the photo dump }

Hey there. Remember me? Previously known as a blogger, stationer, mom and farmer’s wife? Yeah. Didn’t think so. Let’s play a bit of catch up, shall we? I’m headed to the National Stationery Show tomorrow, our third year in a row (you can see years one and two here). We are very excited about all […]

a little egg fun.

We did it! We may be staying up late every night and running around like chickens-with-our-heads-cut-off in prep for the National Stationery Show, but we still eked out time for a little egg decorating with the boys. It’s the small things. We started with these farm fresh eggs (plus a few white ones from the […]

instagr.am { the month of march }

It’s April, and the biggest April Fool’s Day joke you could have played on me would have been telling me it was still March. I totally would have fallen for it, hook, line and sinker. It seems like it SHOULD be March still… which came in like a lamb and exited like a lion (isn’t […]
