Who we are?
MyBabbo’s goal everyday is to leave a meaningful impact on the people we serve.
Our clients are funeral service professionals who support families in their death care needs. Our graphic design and fulfillment team turn photos into cherished keepsakes. Funeral Directors and Life Celebrants rely on MyBabbo’s expertise to provide exceptional graphic design capabilities that personalize and memorialize a loved-one’s life.
Our underlying magic is that we provide a ‘We do it for you’ service.

Why work at MyBabbo?
If you are a conscientious, technically savvy individual, who is looking for meaningful employment, MyBabbo’s ‘Family-First’ culture provides a connection to an engaging and inspiring community that champions your authentic self.
At MyBabbo, we believe that every story matters. It is our mission to get people to STOP (okay, slow down), to REFLECT and to CONNECT more deeply with themselves, their community and ultimately their story. We believe a compilation of photos in a printed photo book tells a story, an important one that helps families and communities share and connect. We launched MyBabbo in 2011, passionate about creating memorial keepsakes.
As a mom with young children, creating a company that offered a family-first lifestyle was paramount. It was important to create a culture that provided an opportunity to work from home, offer flexible schedules, and a manageable work-life balance.
MyBabbo stems from a place of care, compassion, and creativity in a time of grief. Read more about our story by visiting mybabbo.com/our- story/.
