Photobox’s favourite colour is green

2 Feb 2021 • 3 minute read

At Green Gift Cards, we’re really pleased to have recently worked with Photobox by providing them with their new eco-friendly physical gift cards. The team at Photobox were introduced to us through WeGift and we are now excited to announce that they can provide plastic-free gift cards to their customers.

A little bit about Photobox

Photobox help turn people’s photos into thoughtful gifts; from the everyday quick snap to the precious, once-in-a-lifetime event. Whether it's a birthday, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or holiday, photos capture our treasured moments. That’s why every part of the experience, from website to factory to front door, is designed to delight. Photobox help bring people’s memories into the real world with high-quality printing techniques.

Established back in 2000 and with factories in the UK and mainland Europe, Photobox is now the European market leader in photo products. Every year, millions of people enjoy a Photobox canvas, calendar, mug, phone case or one of their iconic, beautiful photo books.

From digital eGifts to physical green gift cards

Photobox has been offering digital eGift Cards to their customers for some time. Following a recent contract win by digital gift card platform services provider, WeGift, Photobox looked to complement their digital offering with a physical gifting solution. WeGift VP, Adam Hobbs, introduced Photobox to Green Gift Cards and once they heard all the unique green benefits of our products, they were delighted to go ahead with the project. Photobox also opted to go with Burgopak’s award-winning slider pack (as seen in the image) to complete the gifting experience for their customers.


What are the cards made from?

The combination of our Green Gift Cards, produced on our 790-micron Invercote with the addition of our eco cellulose matt laminate for extra protection, along with Burgopak’s packaging creates a beautiful end product that delivers a gifting experience that reflects the Photobox offering. The premium presentation not only looks amazing but is 100% recyclable, Photobox describe this as a “no throw-away gift”.

Working towards a greener future

As with all of our Green Gift Cards, the Photobox Green Gift Card is recyclable and compostable. All our cards also feature the Plastic Free Trust Mark, just the start of our fight against plastic pollution.

Green Gift Cards is dedicated to providing sustainable solutions and eco-friendly products for your cards, from inception and creation to the end of the product life.

Introducing our range of plastic-free cards

Since 2006 we have been innovating and disrupting in the card market to develop what is a leading range of environmentally-friendly card solutions. So what sets us apart?

Well that’s the thing, there’s a number of reasons why Green Gift Cards are renowned in the world of card production. It is the material we use for our cards and the certification that the cards come with. It is also the compelling environmental story (we urge you to watch the video) that is behind all of our cards and the fact that, once finished with, our cards are compostable and can be recycled in normal household waste streams. Oh and we’ll say it again – being environmentally-friendly doesn’t mean they are more expensive. In fact they offer great value compared to plastic cards.
