Countdown to Mother’s Day – 3 Days to go

March 24, 2013
  So the countdown is on… 3 days until Mother’s Day, where breakfast in bed and a thoughtful gift are going to be expected up and down the country. But at PhotoBox we thought we would start enjoying Mother’s Day early, by honouring all the wonderful mothers for everything they do. On Facebook we have been honouring a Mother a Day since Monday, by finding inspirational mothers from science, television and film (so far) and sharing with you their parenting stories both joyful and some upsetting. Life sometimes really isn’t easy for mothers. For example Michelle Heaton (British Pop Singer) who gave birth to her first daughter Faith Michelle, in January 2012. She has since had a double mastectomy and reconstructive breast surgery, whilst staying strong for her daughter and husband when knowing she also has a 30% chance of developing ovarian cancer. Unfortunately her daughter has been given a 50% chance of inheriting her mother’s mutated BRCA2 gene.     But for the likes of Angelina Jolie who may not be going through such hard times, it must still be extremely tough looking after her biological children plus her adopted children. Although some may see her as controversial – it is clear that Jolie and her partner (Brad Pitt) do all they can to give underprivileged children and second lease of life, which cannot be questioned.     So if you’re interested in reading some more inspirational parenting stories then check out our Facebook page – We also have a Mother’s Day Pinterest board that includes loads of great ideas to get you inspired for Mother’s Day, so check out our Pinterest to be inspired: At last, but definitely not least we are getting involved with Mother’s Day on Twitter. Follow us at @PhotoBox and check out the Mother’s day hash tag #PBXMothersDay to get involved.

Framed Canvas Prints: Like eyeliner for your photos

October 4, 2012
  Hello there PhotoBoxers! So as the long nights draw in, and those days spent sipping drinks in the sun get washed away, you can always trust Photobox to be the bearer of great news! We’re always really excited to launch a new product, and this one is a corker! We care about your photos as much as you do, so we know that sometimes there are those really awesome photos that deserve something a little special… cue our new Framed Canvas Prints to take your photos to a whole new level of wow! Framed Canvas Prints use the same high quality canvas as our Canvas Prints, but with a 5.4cm deep and 1.9cm wide wooden frame, think of it as eyeliner for your photographs! All the wood we use in our frames is responsibly sourced and FCS certified, which will help you feel not so bad about those thoughts you had about Christian Grey. The range comes in 3 different finishes & 8 different sizes from a not too small 30.5cm x 20.3cm, but we think a framed canvas looks better the bigger it is, and our 76.2cm x 50.8cm frame wouldn’t look out of place on the wall of the Tate. A frame of this quality should really be reserved for your most special memories, but we won’t tell anyone if you use a snap of your cat with a cheese single on its head. We guarantee that all of your friends’ jaws will drop when they see how stunning your photos will look framed!

PhotoBox Launches New School Cards Venture

September 26, 2012
At PhotoBox, we’re putting the fun back into Christmas fundraising Yes, I can hear the groans already. Fundraising- fun? Isn’t that a contradiction in terms? Not when it comes to PhotoBox-powered fundraising! We’re launching this great new programme called PhotoBox School Cards. (No, don’t start groaning again, these aren’t those painfully-posed school photos glued onto cards – not by a long way). Remember, these are PhotoBox cards. So they’re all about celebrating creativity – in this case, the creative powers of the school art lesson. Here’s how it works: Teachers (and PTA members) organise a workshop or class project to design Christmas cards (or any other kind of card for that matter – you might as well create the Thank You cards at the same time, so there’s no excuse for not sending them after the holidays). Each teacher can then scan and upload the kids’ final designs to a secure microsite we provide at no cost to the school. The kids take the weblink home and show off their –and their classmates’ – creative masterpieces to the family at home on the computer. The final card design process becomes a family affair – everyone can chip in, and no-one has to clean up the leftover glue and glitter afterwards. Ordering the cards – a bargain at just £7.99 for a pack of ten 5”x7” folded cards printed on high-gloss paper, with envelopes – is simplicity itself, connecting directly into the PhotoBox shopping cart. Because it’s all online, it’s easy for anyone to order the cards – all parents and teachers (and kids) need to do is let everyone have the URL. And here’s all there is to the fundraising part – for every pack of ten cards sold, PhotoBox will return £2 to the school. It’s so easy, and all your friends and relatives will be so bowled over by the kids’ creative efforts, that no-one will even notice the fundraising part! You could even say it’s child’s play (OK, we’ll let you groan at that one).
