Competing against 715 entries from printing firms across the state, Suttle-Straus garnered the Best of Show for a promotional piece pro-duced for Tri-Coastal Enterprises of Austin, Texas. In addition to the top honors, the company received Best of Category for seven other pieces representing a variety of products.
