The inspiration for Recess goes way back to the 1980’s small-town Saskatchewan. The owner, the young Kyle Chow, would spend his early days practicing his penmanship and stocking a briefcase with pencil crayons and paper. Kyle’s love for stationery only increased thanks to a stint in business school, 4 years of design education, and a partner in his own design studio. At Recess, they know that a thoughtfully considered workspace is a productive workspace. Having things around you that are not only beautifully designed, but incredibly functional helps galvanize productivity, spark creative juices, and streamline workflow.

“It’s the the best place to buy fountain pens, inks and other stationeries in Calgary! I’ve been hunting for beautiful and quality fountain pens for a week, I went to michale’s, staples and searched online, all failed. They may have few regular fountain pens, but mostly are cheap ones made in China with poor quality nibs. But this store has everything. I can find a common classic pilot pen here and some other better or much better german or Japanese Pens. The girl who helped me choose the pen and ink is very friendly and knowledgeble. I love this store and I know this is my go to place for my future stationeries!” – Caroline Beans
