Did You Know?

CEWE was founded by Heinz Neumüller in 1961 in Oldenburg, Germany, as a small photographic studio. Since then we’ve grown substantially thanks to Neumüller, who led us to become the pan-European market leader that we are today!

The CEWE Difference

We’ve perfected the process of making our products to ensure that they never fail to make you smile. Before anything leaves our lab it’s checked, checked and checked again to ensure it’s up to scratch. Only the best is good enough when it comes to your photos.

The highly skilled people who make up our team always go the extra mile to make sure your memories are printed just right. It’s a personal touch, with a professional finish.

Award Winning Photo Book

The CEWE PHOTOBOOK

The CEWE PHOTOBOOK is our pride and joy. Not only is it Europe’s number one photo book, with more than 50 million copies sold (and counting), it’s also been voted the UK’s best. We print hundreds of thousands of them every year right here in Warwick, helping to bring your best moments to life.

Did You Know?

Heinz Neumüller chose to name the company CEWE after the initials of his father-in-law, Carl Wöltje (C.W.). CEWE is pronounced slightly differently across Europe, but here in the UK we say ‘see-wee’.
