PhotoBox turns 10 in style

It’s 10 years since we first came up with the idea of an online photo printing & sharing website that we would like to use ourselves, and would make others happy by bringing their photos to life. Thanks to you guys, our loyal customers, it’s been an amazing 10 years!

Determined to make the celebrations all about you & your memories we kick-started our celebrations with the launch of an Around the World in 80 Days photo competition. The awe-inspiring quality of more than 30,000 entries was incredible to see. Do take a look at the photos if you’ve not seen them, it’s well worth it.

To keep the celebrations going and demonstrate how our photo printing business has evolved into the exciting world of personalised publishing, we created a recording-breaking attempt at the world’s largest photo book!




We also hosted a party to celebrate this fantastic feat with our winners and runners up at a gallery in London’s East End, not far from the tiny basement where we first started printing photos! In pride of place stood our mighty Bookzilla at a towering 20ft by nearly 14ft, packed with the shortlisted competition photos. The party proved a wonderful opportunity to meet many of you face-to-face and it was great to hear some of the stories behind your photos, as appreciating how much they mean to you is at the heart of everything we do.

After enjoying a brilliant night we’re now waiting to hear if our book is an official world-record breaker! We’ll keep you posted but in the meantime check out Bookzilla for yourself and tell us what you think.

We look forward to continuing our exciting journey with you.
