About LiveLink

Founded in a garden shed in 2004, LiveLink's products now lead the European market of digital photo kiosks and online photo ordering systems... and we are expanding even further afield. A rapidly growing company of around 40 employees based in Havant (we have just acquired impressive new offices in a conservation area including gardens and free on-site employee parking) LiveLink has developed interactive kiosks and websites which are used by labs and chains to order prints and a wide array of photo gifts. This expertise has also been transferred into the card industry, so our kiosks can produce a personalised card (or gift) instore in a couple of minutes... like Moonpig or Funky Pigeon but the customer takes the finished product away with them. We have created a new online photo ordering system for ASDA, an instore system for Jessops and, most recently, have merged our product range into a custom-built unit, whilst also trialling systems for a number of other retail chains.
