Celebrating 10 Years of Cuteness

It’s hard to believe that I started this company over 10 years ago. Last year was our 10 year anniversary and we celebrated with a new product launch, swag giveaways, party hats at conventions, Facebook contests, and our first Kickstarter campaign. It was a busy year to say the least. I’ve been running Punch Brand for as long as I can remember, I mean I’ve been working in the apparel industry for nearly 20 years and half of that was owning my own business. It’s a big part of my life and I probably wouldn’t have been able to do it for this long if I wasn’t for the passion I have and all the wonderful fan support I’ve been getting. I cannot thank my fans and customers enough. You are the reason I keep doing what I do. I’ve been wanting to put together a commemorative album with all the memories and photos taken through the years. So I finally put together a photo album containing the best of the best photos. I had to sort through literally thousands of photos, if you can imagine. 10 years is a long time and a lot of memories. I enjoyed putting the photo album together, it was like a walk down memory lane. And to remember all the wonderful people I met and collaborated with and who have helped me through the years. I would like to share some of the photos with you. Please enjoy!

GHSF x crazyheads collaboration

Dreams do come true! Remember my post back in Dec 2009 where I was talking about my wish to do a collaboration with Lights? Yep that was 4 years ago, well my wish came true when Lights and her husband Beau Bokan from Blessthefall visited our booth at Fan Expo Canada and then later contacted us to do a collaboration together. My first reaction was “is this a dream? Pinch me if this is not a dream”. I got to go backstage and watch Lights perform at the PNE last September. That marked the kick off to our GHSFx crazyheads collaboration together. Beau is the lead singer for Blessthefall and also has a clothing line named Golden Hearts Shine Forever. We decided to design one of our smitts based on the GHSF teddy logo, using the bones as inspiration I was able to add stuffed 3D bones to the black hooded smitt. And voila! Today was the official launch on the GHSF merchline website. If you are a fan of GHSF or crazyheads then go now and order one of these limited of 50 hooded smitts. To buy go to—> http://ghsf.merchline.com/

LIGHTS wears Panda Hoodie

We love this new video by LIGHTS- “Saviour”. She’s such a talented artist, you can check out her music on her website http://www.iamlights.com/

Did I mention she also wears our products? Here’s a picture of her wearing our cute panda hoodie. We’ve  tried to contact LIGHTS (actually her manager) a while back to try to  work on a collaborative project. We heard she’s a  huge comic book fan. But we never expected she would walk by our booth at Fan Expo! She even bought our grey SMITTS. We were ecstatic! (Oh and btw, LIGHTS if you happen to read this, we’re still open to a collaboration) ^ _ ^
