Gates Gets Its ‘Prints Taken

Here’s an ad Sukle made for Gates Rubber, a Denver-based company that manufactures transmission belts.
The copy says, “Because no two applications are the same. Powergrip Belt Drives – Find your fit.”
Imagine seeing this ad in an automotive trade pub. I’m sure it stands out.
