This Valentine's Day we threw a lifeline to men in Britain's least romantic city by offering a same-day delivery service on 14th February.
The prospect of a ruined Valentine’s in the town really pulled at our heart strings, and that's why we decided to trial same-day delivery there.
Hopefully we’ve sent hearts racing for a few customers who have dropped the ball this Valentine’s Day.
On our latest Lunch & Learn in the office, we got to hear about the importance of organ donation with a guest speaker from NHS Blood and Transplant.
Quinten Francken-Bosman, our Shipping & Procurement Director for the Photbox Group spoke at The Delivery Conference where she made a call out to the industry to innovate faster, understand the customers better and personalise the delivery experience!
In case you missed her session at the conference, you can read about her key points on Essential Retail:
We actively encourage our employees to take part in community events and we are so pleased to share that our own Darren Beukes from Photobox joint the Moonpig team that won this year’s The Hacker Games. Congratulation to Jasper Law, James Spencer, Darren Beukes, Tom Pallister and Alex Kruzewski. They created a fantastic virtual reality experience drawing on Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing, which is a new treatment for PTSD. It can be successfully used to treat single trauma events, and the judges especially liked that it could be used by soldiers in the field as it doesn’t require internet access.
The event was organised in support of Help for Heroes and raised £11,000.
Colleagues at our factory in north west London work incredibly hard, so we thought they deserved a very special Christmas card. That's why we printed our biggest ever, just for them - and with all of their names inside! It was all designed & printed in-house using our Impala press and - at almost 2.5m high - it certainly makes an impact!
As you can see from these snaps, Christmas is in full swing across the Photobox Group! Our talented teams are feeling festive here at Photobox as well as at our extended family of Moonpig, Hofmann and PosterXXL.
Keeping our customers happy with a smile on their faces. We couldn't ask for more and we're so thankful for their hard work this year.
Our forthcoming move to stunning Herbal House has made the news!
Property Week have a quote from Robin Carr, co-chief investment officer at Ærium (the property owner), who said: “PhotoBox Group is exactly the kind of high-quality creative business that we hoped to attract to this state-of-the-art office development."
We couldn't agree more, and can't wait to move in next spring... check out our latest vacancies if you'd like to join our team.
Exciting times are coming for Photobox. Next spring we're waving goodbye to our office in Southwark and making the move into one of London’s most iconic industrial buildings, the newly completed Herbal House.
Not only does the building date back to the 1920s (it was originally the Daily Mirror's printing works and the London School of Printing & Arts), it's also mere moments away from the garage where the Photobox Group business was founded.
“We are delighted to return to our roots north of the river, in an area which is synonymous with creativity and digital innovation. Herbal House is steeped in printing history, and we look forward to maintaining its legacy and writing our next chapter as Europe’s leading group of personalisation businesses,” said Jody Ford, Chief Executive of Photobox Group.
