Designer Profile: 1canoe2

1canoe2 letterpress is the stuff dreams are made of…

Carrie and Beth are childhood friends who always loved to draw. Now the two are all grown-up and work together as professional illustrators, designers and printers.

The name 1canoe2 comes from years of the two dreaming up big ideas around a campfire and floating down a spring-fed Missouri river in a canoe. Two girls, one canoe. One canoe, two.

Carrie and Beth had just began their journey as a letterpress company in 2009 when they asked Carrie’s sister-in-law, Karen, to join the team. Now three women strong, 1canoe2 chases even bigger dreams and creates letterpress art that makes people happy.

They work out of a barn studio on Carrie’s family farm where they get their hands really, really dirty. Learn more about the girls of 1canoe2 on their website, blog or Etsy shop.
