Overview

Moonpig is part of the Photobox Group which operates under a family of brands including PhotoBox, Sticky9, Hofmann, PosterXXL and, of course, Moonpig.com.

The Moonpig team of c.150 share a large open plan creative hub in Southwark, SE1, whilst our 40 strong production team is split between our London NW10 (Park Royal) and our Guernsey locations.

We don’t sell ‘off the shelf’ products … we’re personal. Every single thing you buy from us is unique to you. The purpose of our great family of brands is to magic our customers’ photos, words and feelings into precious objects that make them smile, laugh and, sometimes, cry.  We’re in the business of ‘one-of-a-kind’ and so delighting each and every customer is central to everything we do.

In July 2011 Moonpig.com,  the world’s largest online personalised greeting card retailer, merged with PhotoBox, creating Europe’s leading personalised publishing group with a focus on online retailing of greeting and gift cards and digital photo services, including printing, storage, sharing and publishing.
