About Us

13 Jacks is a full service boutique Marketing Agency based in South Orange County, California. With an unabashed love for all things marketing, we support organizations of all sizes around the world.

From website management, to public relations — social media strategy to graphic design — event management to email marketing — we’ve got you covered. All projects are completed with the utmost quality and creativity, on-time and on-budget. Everything we do is data-driven.

We’re very active in the local community and believe volunteerism creates goodwill and develops us both personally and professionally. When you partner with 13 Jacks, you’re helping support families in need. Profits from each customer engagement go directly towards feeding and clothing low income members of our neighborhood. This year, we have chosen to partner with The Peace Center in Lake Forest, a South Orange County food bank and health clinic. Learn more about how 13 Jacks gives back.
