Paragon Display Group, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has announced an operating agreement with Alternative Revenue Development (ARD) of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, to supply design and high-resolution graphics for a program that creates an alternative revenue stream for Michigan school districts.

Alternative Revenue Development’s program, pairs school districts with local, regional, and national sponsors through on-campus signage at high school auditoriums, media centers, natatoriums, gyms, theaters, and baseball and football stadiums. According to Bill Van Cleve, Paragon Display owner, “This on-campus signage maintains the integrity of the school while allowing the school to generate a revenue stream that helps replace funds lost to state cutbacks. We’re proud to be of help in maintaining programs that might otherwise have been cut. This is a total win-win situation. It’s going over like gangbusters here in southeast Michigan, and we’ll be expanding it to 25 to 40 targeted districts in the fall.”

“The decorative graphics are designed to boost school spirit while offering an appropriate commercial message for the sponsors,” said Sara Clevenger, Senior Account Manager at Paragon. “The ad spaces are small and tastefully designed, with most of the space devoted to the school décor graphics. We remain committed to the quality and integrity of our display execution through the use of thoughtful design and state-of-the-art materials.”

As part of their Downriver Early Adopter Program, ARD has signed up the Trenton, Woodhaven-Brownstown, Southgate, and Wyandotte school districts. Signage for Trenton high school was installed April 12-13. At a program launch event on April 14th, ARD introduced its list of participating sponsors for that program, as over 22 have already signed on to participate.
