Avery Office Supplies Protects Their Brand and Lowers Campaign Costs by 51%

Despite their best efforts, one particular competitor kept violating Avery’s trademark policies.  No matter how many times violations were submitted to the engines, the competitor would appear with new ad copy that featured “Avery” prominently in their headlines.
