About us

What started in 1967 by Owen Higgins, printing plastic labels and engraving aluminium nameplates in a small factory in Auckland, has grown to be a leading specialty custom- design printing services company that operates across Australasia.



We’re well-established and have a wide range of new and repeat customers who have an even wider range of specialised printing needs. As we’ve been in business for more than 5 decades, the depth of experience and knowledge we’ve built up over this time is reflected in both customer service and the quality of our products.

Over the years, we’ve expanded due to smart mergers, investing in the latest technologies, and capitalising on our design background and innovative thinking. Permark now has offices in Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne, and our team operates factories in Auckland and Christchurch.

I found Permark just as my business was launching. They patiently went through options with me to best showcase our logo/brand on our metal fabricated products. Great service considering we were a brand new company with no promise of large volume. I've been super happy with their service, price and performance especially through our growth. Lead times are short and communication is great. Highly recommended

Starting a new business was daunting! Permark provide a service that not many do – John and the team were kind and understood the demands of the industry. Not only do Permark provide excellent quality products, they are willing to accommodate any challenge we throw at them!” John’s understanding/helpfulness in creating our tags has greatly contributed to our business success the last 4 years!

The Lifting Guys





Permark have been a key supplier of ours for over thirty years. Our products operate in a diverse range of harsh environments and simply must perform. We rely on the expertise of Permark to ensure the right materials are selected for our graphics and keypads. The team at Permark take the time to understand our business and always provide outstanding customer service. So much so that we recently convinced one of our contract customers to pull production of decals from offshore and have Permark manufacture them, both us and our customer are very happy with the outcome. Permark are recognised as one of our top suppliers and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for first class service and products.
