Morrisville State College

Each year, Downtown Decorations collaborates with colleges and universities across the country. Typically, we produce collegiate light pole banners for the schools, but we have also worked on other unique custom décor projects. A great example of this is the large commencement banners we designed for Morrisville State College in Morrisville, New York.

The small upstate college is part of the State University of New York and is home to over 3,500 students. Morrisville State College has been considered one of the most technologically advanced colleges in the nation and The New York Times once called it “a college at the forefront of a technological revolution.”

We began working with the school back in 2010. Since then, we have produced many different light pole banners for them, including the “In Motion” and the “Welcome to Morrisville” designs pictured in this post. In addition to the light pole banners, we also produced large commencement banners for the school in 2012. The elegant crisp white commencement banners feature gold frayed trimming and the college’s seal printed in forest green. We love the way they turned out and we are happy the school will be able to use them for years to come.

Mount Holly, New Jersey

In 2013, we had the opportunity to work on an exciting banner project with Mount Holly, New Jersey. The township, which is located in Burlington County, is a short 35 minute drive from Philadelphia. This unique project gave us the chance to create banners that were not only striking and colorful, but honored the men and women in our armed forces. The crisp blue banners that were designed for this project feature the logo for the nearby Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. The base, which was established in October 2009, combines the United States Air Force’s McGuire Air Force Base, the United States Army’s Fort Dix, and the United States Navy’s Naval Air Engineering Station Lakehurst. We’re extremely proud to have been a part of this project and we think the banners look superb lining the streets of Mount Holly.

Washington College

We’re about a month away from the start of the fall semester at colleges around the world. Schools are preparing for the return of old students and the arrival of new ones. One of the best ways that a campus can provide a warm welcome is with collegiate banners. Downtown Decorations has worked with schools from across the country on these type of projects. Recently, we collaborated with Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland to update their banners. We started working with independent liberal arts college in 2012 and have produced banners for them every year since. This year, the college went with a crisp maroon colored banner featuring the school’s logo, George Washington’s signature. We think the new banners look great and can’t wait to work with Washington College again in the future.

Trinity University

Downtown Decorations recently completed this unique and exciting banner project for Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. These colorful and creative banners are now on display outside of the stunning Northrup Hall, which was designed by renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern. Half of the custom banners feature inspirational words like Discover, Grow and Become. The other half showcase some outstanding photos of student athletes, student musicians and students in the classroom. We are thrilled with the way this project turned out. We think the banners add even more pop to this lively and energetic campus.
