Iron Leaf Press: Vendor Spotlight


For Danielle Chargo providing her clients with custom handmade printed items is not just a job, it's her passion. She's the owner of Iron Leaf Press, an artisan paper goods shop, in Mount Vernon, Iowa. Her love of graphic design and handmade items is clear the second you walk in! Danielle has a degree in Graphic Design and found her love of printmaking while still in school. She uses a combination of antique printing type and new technologies to produce stunning paper goods from wedding invitation suites to custom stationery.

All the letterpress paper goods are printed by hand in the shop using one of the 3 letterpresses (the oldest of which is 98 years old!). Danielle has the capability to print on handmade paper and can do gold, silver or copper foil as well. Her foil prints are stunning, especially printed on a darker paper. The shop also uses environmentally friendly cotton blend papers (all of which are recyclable), which is a huge plus!

If you're considering Iron Leaf for your invitations or other wedding items (programs, placecards, seating charts etc) 4 to 6 months before your big day is the perfect time to set up a consultation! You can go in with an idea or opt to have Danielle design it for you, either way you'll end up with a gorgeous quality product!

Advice from Danielle

When ordering your invitations make sure to order for the number of addresses and not the number of guests!
