Homegrown in the heartland, 1canoe2 is an illustration and letterpress company rooted in mid-Missouri but with global reach.
In 2009, two childhood friends purchased their first full-size letterpress machine (nicknamed Roy) and 1canoe2 was born. The company’s name represents a spirit of kinship, heartland roots, and memories of canoe trips and campfires along Missouri streams with “one canoe, two girls.”
Inspired by life’s natural beauty, all artwork (lettering, designs, and paintings) is hand-illustrated—embodying a spirit of warmth, kindness, and authenticity.
