ABout different Needle sizes
The Joyful Punch offers Oxford Punch Needles in different sizes. The number of a needle will tell you how tall the loops are. Additionally there is a distinction between regular and fine needles. The fine needles will work with finer yarn, the regular needles with thicker yarn. Here is more information about what yarn to use.
For beginners I recommend starting with the #10 regular because you will see great results most quickly.
Here's an overview of the loop heights the most common needle sizes make:
#9 makes 3/8” / ca 1 cm tall loops
#10 makes 1/4” / ca 0,6 cm tall loops
#13 makes 3/16" / ca 0,5 cm tall loops
#14 makes 1/8" / 0,3 cm tall loops

Besides the Oxford punch needles there are other kinds of needles available as well. The adjustable needle in the photo below (left) is suited for the same yarn as the regular Oxford needles (for knitting needles 6-8mm). The hight of the needle is adjustable which means you can change the height of the loops.
