Project Bright Idea Announces Grand Opening
LISBON (CBS 2 / FOX 28) -- The Grand Opening of Iron Leaf Press will be held this Friday, June 21, from 4 to 7 pm at the Project Bright Idea property, 134 E. Main Street, Lisbon. The Grand Opening is being held in partnership with Moon Eye Ventures and the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group and is free and open to the public.
Iron Leaf Press is the winner of the Project Bright Idea Business Plan Contest announced earlier this year. As the winner, Iron Leaf Press has access to a 1,000-square-foot completely renovated facility in downtown Lisbon for up to 24 months rent free, as well as a monthly utility allotment and various support services.
“This is a dream come true,” says Danielle Ameling, owner of Iron Leaf Press. “I have been working for years with my letterpress printing business -- building a customer base, creating products and marketing my work to others. The opportunity now to do all of this from the Project Bright Idea building is thrilling. I can’t wait to dig in and get to work!”
At the Iron Leaf Press grand opening, attendees can tour the new studio and make their own letterpress print on a vintage printing press. Appetizers will be available from Gwen’s, as well as beignets from Sweet Dee’s Beignets. Wine, punch and other refreshments also will be available.
