More information about Photobox
Founded in 2000 by Graham Hobson, PhotoBox is now known as Europe’s leading online digital photo printing service. The company has been through various changes over the years, merging with their French counterpart Photoways in 2006.
The ‘PhotoBox Group’ was created in July 2011 when they merged again with the popular personalised greeting cards company, Moonpig.
Currently the company reaches more than 27 million members across 19 countries. They predominantly work in European countries, with their head offices in London and Paris, but there are fledgling operations beginning in Canada, New Zealand and Australia to expand the company.
As a business, PhotoBox pride themselves on their passion for outstanding products and excellent customer services. Their business plan is simply to help people make memories that will last. As a result of this, they recorded a growth of 16% in 2012/13.
2013 saw Photobox expand further with the introduction of StickyGram to their group; this is an online brand which delivers Instagram photos to users as small printed stickers. They also added PaperShaker to their portfolio, a company that focuses on creating invitations and announcement cards.
The site at Photobox.co.uk also includes an excellent online community where they take feedback from consumers and can engage with their customer base to help improve upon their service. They are also a member of the Internet Watch Foundation meaning that they encourage the reporting of illegal and offensive photo uploading to their site.
Over the years, PhotoBox has been granted several awards, including the 2005 Computer Buyer Best Buy Award, the 2010 Which? Best Buy for Photo Prints and, most recently, the 2013 A&B Digital Partnership Award Winners for Facebritain.
