I promised big news this week, so, drumroll please…………….
Iron Leaf Press is the winner of the Project Bright Idea Business Plan Competition! As the winner, I’ll have a building in neighboring, downtown Lisbon, Iowa as the new home for Iron Leaf Press for up to two years (rent-free!).
I applied back in March and am so excited for this amazing opportunity! The building was originally a home, built in 1881, but has since been renovated into a commercial space. This means I’ll have a place for my new (heavy) press, as well as space for retail, consultation, and workshops.
I’ll start moving in soon and hope to have a grand celebration in mid-June. I’m looking forward to seeing you all there!
UPDATE: The Cedar Rapids Gazette picked up on this little story. Read it here.
UPDATE #2: KCRG also posted a video about Project Bright Idea!
