U of M Grad, Brother Develop Toilet Paper Advertising
Jordan Silverman, a recent University of Michigan graduate, and his brother Bryan are on a roll. They’re attempting to crack the world of advertising with a unique product: Toilet paper printed with ads and coupons.
Don’t pooh-pooh the idea, these entrepreneurial brothers just may make a butt-load of cash!
Younger brother Bryan is one of five finalists in Entrepreneur Magazine’s College Entrepreneur of 2012 competition. He and his brother co-founded Star Toilet Paper.
The idea hit older brother Jordan when he was – you guessed it – in the bathroom.
The toilet paper is printed with a soybean-based ink, and readers can take advantage of coupon offers by using their cellphones to read printed codes, or visit websites.
