By attending an AIGA event, you agree to abide by the Code of Conduct.

In July, we’ll be touring Franklin Press Inc out in Plymouth for our Solopreneur Meetup! Franklin Press Inc will host a small group of Solos to tour their location in Plymouth, MN.

Attendees will get an opportunity to learn more about all the steps that happen before and after sending art files to a printer. From pre-press to print to collating, cropping, and packaging, you’ll get a look into all the capabilities paper has to offer. The meetup will begin with a short presentation before the tour and wrap up with Q&A. 

This Meetup is limited to 10 people for space & safety considerations, so we are using Google Forms to track registrations for attendees & build a waitlist if need be.

You may be waitlisted. If so, and a spot opens up closer to the date, you’ll receive an email. If you register to attend and are unable to attend, please let us know at least 48 hours in advance to allow people on the waitlist to join.


Solopreneurs is a monthly meeting of independent creatives sponsored by AIGA MN. Join us for an insightful discussion on topics relevant to people working in the creative economy. Meet other local, independent freelancers, consultants, small business owners, and entrepreneurs. All creatives welcome. Free to everyone.

Leah Meilander
Leah Meilander
Chair of Solopreneurs
I am Freelance Visual Designer and Artist based in Bloomington, MN. I have over a decade of experience with brand identities, designing for print & digital, website design, event design, as well as marketing strategy & planning. Overall, I'm more of a generalist who specializes in brand strategy, graphic design, and web design.

In addition to being a freelance designer, I am also a lettering and illustration artist. A lot of my custom hand-drawn work appears in my client projects.

When I’m not designing or drawing, I enjoy climbing/bouldering, lifting, going to movies, dancing, and hanging out with family & friends.
