The smell of coffee is in the air. The white studio walls don floral paintings and randomly curated pieces of paper that—for one reason or another—spark a point of interest or inspiration. It is a place where music is blasting, the floor is (often) layered with stacks of files and freshly painted cold-pressed paper… annnnd where we sometimes get the company of a tiny human (or two) pretending to be a roaring lion. (Our favourite company to receive!)

The #REBstudio is a stationery and design studio focused on creating inspired paper goods using quality materials. Painted florals, considered typography, and using only the finest papers are what we are most known for. Everything can be taken as inspiration–if you look through the right lens–and we are constantly looking.
With over a decade’s worth of experience working in print design, Owner and Principal Designer, Robin Wilms values the relationships that are cultivated with wedding couples, clients, and vendors. We believe that the tiny details are what makes something truly grand. We take the time to get to know you—who you are, what inspires you, and the styles you most naturally gravitate towards—to weave bits and pieces of personality into the end result. Using only the finest materials and employing a wide range of printing techniques and hand-finishing details, our care and attention to details is of utmost importance.
the B A C K S T O R Y
Robin Egg Blue Design & Paper began as a hobby for me back in 2009. While working for a non-profit in a communications and marketing role, I missed the feeling of putting a brush to paper. I started doing illustrations and graphics for friends on the weekends, which turned into word getting out and people knocking on my proverbial door. I loved the balance of working in an office downtown during the week, and painting/creating on the weekends. Then along came boy #1. Time became less available—and an opportunity arose. When faced with a “choose your own adventure” in life, I am a huge advocate of following your heart. It takes guts (in my case a few tears), but the reward of following your passion and knowing you are doing the work you were meant to do is worth all of the struggle to decide. I now have boy #2, a business I am proud to work in, and I can’t wait to see where the road goes.
