Cary ED brochure


Out of 1,851 submissions to the 2015 APEX Awards for Publication Excellence, only 82 earned the distinction of winning a Grand Award. S&A Communications’ entry – a four-color brochure entitled “Cary’s got it!” – won a Grand Award in the category of Print Media, For Profit Large Office.

The APEX Awards program is an annual international competition for corporate and nonprofit publishers, editors, writers and designers who create print, Web, electronic and social media. Sponsored by Communications Concepts, Inc., the program recognizes excellence in writing, publications, campaigns, programs, design and media. Now in its 27th year, the APEX Awards program bestows awards in 100 individual categories under 11 major headings.

Of this particular entry, one judge wrote: “Cary does, indeed, have it, once you read this inviting, beautifully designed and illustrated booklet. Copywriting is crisp, concise, and hits the high points quickly. Readers are carried (no pun intended) through to the end, where the caryed.com link encourages them to continue on to Cary’s economic development website. A classy marketing effort.”

“We are particularly proud of this ‘Cary’s got it!’” piece since our company has been based in Cary for more than 25 years, and we are active supporters of the Chamber and the local community,” said Owner/Principal Chuck Norman, APR. “This brochure is part of a larger economic development campaign that has attracted numerous companies to the area.”
