A coin begins as a piece of metal, worth simply its own weight. It is then punchmarked with a symbol, created to represent a specific value or set of principles. When marked with this symbol, that ordinary piece of metal transforms into a valuable and trusted form of currency. This story is parallel to the design of every great company and brand.
Punchmark has provided web design, branding, and industry-specific data solutions to large and small jewelry businesses since inception in 2007. We're a team of creative professionals with a unique array of technological and creative skills giving us the ability to take any business from conception to production with a great rate of success.
Success is achieved when design is based on the needs of real people. Punchmark specializes in branding, interactive design and development. Our mission is to help companies find their unique voice within the marketplace, and inspire positive reactions by engaging the emotions of the people that matter most to their business.
