oh hello there, thank you for stopping by.


pixel paper hearts is a minority woman owned illustration + stationery shop based in Milton, Ontario.

The company started as a creative outlet tag teamed by a sister / brother duo - Charisse de Leon and Wayne Reyes. Their love affair for all things design sprung out of Room 113 - their high school graphic arts classroom. it was in that room where they first learned to cut rubylith, used a printing press, exposed a silk screen and of course, met Adobe.

pixel paper hearts made its online debut in May 2013 via Etsy as a print shop, with a small collection of 13 wall prints which illustrated modern typography designs and words that motivated, inspired & warmed hearts.

since then, pixel paper hearts graduated from their humble beginnings to a full fledged graphic design umbrella fabricating custom designs, witty social stationery and other modern goods.

today, Wayne is a registered nurse working full-time in downtown Toronto. pixel paper hearts operates solely under Charisse’s creative direction.


Hi! I'm Charisse - I am a creator, a self-taught graphic designer, an entrepreneur and the wearer of all hats for pixel paper hearts. Fuelled by my love for coffee, I typically find my material in the everyday ... from life with kids in the suburbs, on the ball diamond watching competitive sports parents, being a mid-millennial and indulging in an obscene amount of self-help books.

I am a firm believer in rooting for each other. in building someone up, celebrating their victories - big or small without ever questioning our own. there is so much power in community over competition.

currently calling Milton, Ontario home with my chef husband (yes chef), we spend a great chunk of of life rooting for our two babes on the ball diamond.

I’m happy you’re here :)
