This year, we’re beyond excited to welcome one of the biggest photo products providers in the world – Photobook Worldwide,” said Michal Czaicki, CEO of Printbox. “Onsite training carried out by the Printbox team at PBWW’s headquarters was a great opportunity to both teach the system and establish partner relations,” he added.
