Waunakee, WI – Suttle-Straus is excited to announce that the Great Lakes Graphics Association (GLGA) has recognized them for printing excellence. Earlier this year, Suttle-Straus submitted several print samples for consideration in GLGA’s annual Graphics Excellence Awards (GEA) competition, one of the largest printing competitions in the nation. Winners were recently notified of their achievements and Suttle-Straus is proud to be the recipient of five Best of Category awards.
Judging for the GEAs was completed in early March by a panel of experts in the print and production industry. Each entry was judged on its own merit in a category with similar printed pieces. The judging criteria included clarity and neatness, richness and tonal qualities of color, paper and ink selection, ink coverage, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, finishing, bindery and overall visual impact.
In addition to the Best of Category awards, numerous Awards of Excellence and Certificates of Merit were given to other projects. The Best of Category award-winning entries will automatically advance to the Premier Print Awards competition, a nation-wide competition hosted by Printing Industries of America, where each entry has a chance to win the coveted “Benny” award.
Ted Straus, President of Suttle-Straus, states, “We are extremely proud of our dedicated team and the work they put into producing beautiful print pieces. It is a real achievement to continually be recognized as a company that produces top quality, award-winning materials.”
An awards ceremony to celebrate all the winning entries will be held May 24 at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee. Additional awards for Best of Show, Best of State and People’s Choice will be announced that evening.
The five Best of Category winners are as follows:
- Sub-Zero Wolf M Series Cookbook
