March Featured Artist: 1Canoe2

Postable’s March featured artist is the lovely 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.


We asked Beth some questions…

* How many folks are involved in the whole design process?

2-3 people touch the art before it gets to Postable

* What are the different roles? 

Carrie does all the illustration, Beth and Carrie do the final design together, Kate turns it into a Postable product

*Where are your headquarters? 

In a barn. In a cornfield. In the middle of Missouri. We love it here.

* What’s your favorite card that you’ve designed (on Postable)?

My personal favorite is the Birthday Stripes card.

* Where do you draw your inspiration for your design?

The world around us, our rural setting, pretty colors.

* If you had to describe your cards in one word, what would it be?



*If you could spend a day with any person (dead or alive) who would it be?

Um, maybe Martha Stewart? I’m pretty intrigued by her savvy business skills.

*If you had to paint your house inside and out with the same color, what would it be? Why?

Citron green. It’s just my happy color.

*What would you choose as your last meal?

Mashed potatoes, cheese curls, shrimp cocktail and sparkling grape juice. Do I know how to party or what?
