Founder of Impamark Passes Away

We are very sad to announce the recent passing of David Thurgood

David started Impamark in 1969 in North West London

The company began originally as a manufacturer of small leather goods, but when it moved to Burnham in 1975 it advanced into screen printing of garments, stickers, engraved metal and crystal products, and then printed ceramics and glassware. Impamark now operates as a business gift distributor from offices at Dammerwick Farm in Burnham on Crouch

In 2015 Impamark celebrated 40 years based in Burnham on Crouch, and has had many successes including supplying souvenirs for the Royal Wedding in 1981 and commemorative gifts to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012

David was an inspirational and hard working man who was devoted throughout his life to the promotional merchandise industry. It is due to his tireless work with the armed forces that Impamark was granted an official licence in 2009 to supply the MOD & Armed Forces

David and his wife Anne retired from the business in June 2006, and their daughter Nicky has been running it since

In his private life David was a committed Rotarian and Freemason and worked throughout his life raising money for many charitable causes

A service of thanksgiving will be held on Tuesday 9th February at the URC Church in Burnham on Crouch at 12.30 p.m.

Donations if desired to Farleigh Hospice or Help For Heroes via the Tributes & Donations page at www.pauljking.com


Burnham-on-Crouch Promotional Merchandise Company, Impamark,  has entered the British Promotional Merchandise Association’s  (BPMA) Campaign of the Year Award

The company had to create a one page brief to explain their award which was done in conjunction with local graphic designer Tracy Saunders










Impamark are very proud of their long standing relationship with Essex County Council and 2012 has seen the introduction of new ranges of products to reflect becoming a British Citizen in Essex. The extensive product range is available for the 2000 new citizens to buy from the souvenir stall as well as a small selection which are commemorative gifts and presented at the actual Citizenship ceremony itself.

The final live vote will take place at the BPMA’s Annual Awards Dinner in Coventry on January 23rd 2013, where entertainment will be award winning JLS and Alexandra Burke!
