We were pleased to take home 7 awards.
In addition to 5 second and third place entries, winning categories for the company included:
Business Cards – 100% Thermographed, One Color

Contest entries were judged at the WPT headquarters in Nashville, TN and displayed at the conference before the awards dinner. The winning entries were presented to Utley Brothers, Inc., on June 26, 2010. “These awards recognize the great work of our company, our team members and wonderful customers with a creative vision,” says Duane Harrison, President, “we couldn’t be more pleased.”
