It’s been 40 years since we opened our very first bonusprint. To celebrate, we’re looking back on four amazing decades spent capturing your best moments. From a single shop on the high-street to online photo book specialists, we’ve come a long way, and we’ve got customers like you to thank for trusting us with your photos.

To show our journey through the years, we’ve created this timeline below. And we’ll be marking our big milestone with a new competition that you can take part in on Facebook and Instagram.

The bonusprint story from 1979 to now

bonusprint was founded as a company back in 1965, but our first high-street store opened its doors to the public in 1979. Since then, you’ve let us share some of your favourite memories, which has helped us bring over 40 million moments to life in print. Here’s our story so far…

Competition time!

Celebrate the last four decades with us by entering our social competition. We’re giving you the chance to win one of four £40 bonusprint vouchers to spend on anything across our product range. You could create a photo book looking back on the last 40 years in your family, or customise some wall art to show a landmark moment of your own.

All you have to do to enter is share a photo of a memory that’s special to you. It could be of anything that’s close to your heart, like a wedding photo, a picture from your graduation or your baby’s first birthday.

You’ve got from the 13th of March until the 7th of April to submit your entries, every Sunday in this period we pick a winner. Good luck!
