Suttle-Straus: Earns NAPL Marketing Excellence Award: A national distinction as a leader in marketing within the graphic communications industry

Suttle-Straus, Waunakee based communications company, has earned NAPL’s 2009 Silver and Bronze Marketing Excellence Award for Direct Mail and Digital Marketing. The national awards distinguish Suttle-Straus as a top company in its field providing outstanding marketing capabilities as part of its full complement of graphic arts and printing services.

The Marketing Excellence Awards were started by NAPL, the National Association for Printing Leaders, to highlight the high caliber of marketing work being conducted by its members across the country. Made possible through a generous sponsorship by Xerox, the awards showcase those companies who demonstrate superior marketing services both in distinguishing themselves within the industry and in assisting clients in meeting their own business goals.

The Suttle-Straus Silver award was received for its submission for the demonstration website entitled “Acme” fashioned after the classic Roadrunner and Coyote cartoon series. The Bronze award was given for a “POW!” mailer highlighting new digital production features.

“We are very proud of this national recognition of our marketing efforts and the results that it has brought for us,” stated company president John Berthelsen. “The entire marketing team has put a great deal of effort into our programs and this shows that their hard work has not gone unnoticed.”

“We at NAPL are very pleased to congratulate everyone at Suttle-Straus for earning this significant industry honor,” says Joseph Truncale, NAPL president, in announcing the award. “Their high level of achievement exemplifies their ability to achieve long-term prosperity and growth for their customers.”
