Founded as a small traditional printer, the company began serving the Carolinas as Brumley Printing in 1924. Over the next 50 years the company grew and prospered by producing excellent printed pieces. Then, in 1996, Walter Payne purchased this business, renamed it ImageMark, and began to shake things up.

Walter had no “printer’s ink” under his nails, but he had a shrewd business sense for seeing where industry was headed. Based on that, he built an all-new ImageMark. He immediately added direct mail and, as market conditions began to evolve toward the on-demand world, he totally re-tooled ImageMark to support those markets.

ImageMark was among the first to implement color digital technology, purchasing its first NexPress in 2003. Today ImageMark is a leader in bringing the latest digital technology to the marketplace. It is this in-depth understanding of how the on-demand world works that allows ImageMark to serve large companies across the nation with ease and continue on its path of innovation, leadership, and growth in the industry.

Ultimately, ImageMark’s greatest assets are its staff and clients. The management team, experienced sales team, and the great people we work with (our clients) have made this business the success it is today.
