“We’ve already experienced a steady growth in sales in Europe and, I believe, we have a huge opportunity to establish Printbox as the new and robust alternative to other photo gift creation platforms,” said Michał Czaicki, Printbox CEO. “From what we’ve heard, we probably have the most dynamic, and flexible software on the market. This should give digital print customers a reason to explore this market opportunity,” he added.

Printbox enables printing companies to offer online designing, ordering and payment for photobooks, photo calendars, canvas, invitations, prints, and many other personalized gifts. It works online and can be accessed through standard web browsers. The new editor in HTML5 for canvas, wall art and posters allows access via tablets and smartphones, in addition to PCs.

The system works online and there’s nothing to download. Users go to a website and create their products there. When complete, they proceed to the shopping cart for payment. A securely encrypted PDF job is sent to the selected computer. The production is fully automated and works with existing workflows. The benefit that sets Printbox apart is its end-to-end platform,with no need for additional development work from the customer’s side, said the company. “Hosting, back-ups and updates are always included in the package. And, there are different approaches that reflect the process of sales for different photo products, so as to achieve high ROI.”

printboxusa2-inPrintbox also has a portfolio of dedicated editors to create photo books, photo calendars, prints, invitations, business cards, and many more personalized products. There’s also a native mobile app for use on every Android and iOS device to cover mobile sales of other products. Pricing depends on the number of branded sites. The Lite package allows for a single site, Standard up to five sites and and Premium, an unlimited number of sites. The cost also depends on whether the customer chooses software online, mobile or both. Thus, several possible combinations are available.
