Photo Booth FAQs

 

How does the photo booth work?

 

We’ve designed our photo booth with all of your guests in mind – all they need to do is to grab a prop, strike a pose and press start on the touch screen monitor. The three photos are then taken in sequence and printed on high quality paper by a dye sub printer. Your guests can then collect their photo after a few moments from the collection tray!

Is there help on hand if anyone needs assistance with the photo booth?

 

A friendly photo booth professional is included in the hire price and will be there to set up and take down the photo booth. They will encourage your guests to have fun with the props and will overlook the running of the booth.

 

Are you able to access events on different floors?

 

The entire booth will dismantle into sections, making it easily transportable and no hassle to access a function above the ground floor.

 

How long does it take to set up the photo booth?

 

We will usually allow at least one hour before the event start time to set up and make sure that everything is ready for your guests. You will need to make sure that the venue is expecting us and that we are able to unload and setup at the arranged time.

 

What else do you need from the venue?

 

We will need an allocated space for the photo booth to be set up. We will need 2.5m x 2.5m area to set up and to make sure that your guests are able to access it. In additon we will need nearby access to a mains power supply so that we can power up the booth.

 

How many people can fit into the photo booth?

 

Our booth is great because it has an open plan design allowing even more people to fit into the shot than most other photo booths (It will accommodate around 1-8 people – sometimes more depending on the floor space available). It also has a choice of backgrounds to choose from.

 

Can children use the photo booth?

 

Children can absolutely use our photobooth, although they will need to be accompanied by an adult whilst they use the booth.

 

How many prints do we get included in the price?

 

You get an unlimited amount of prints included in your booking. On average guests tend to use between 40-60 prints per hour.

 

What size are the prints?

 

Our standard photo size is 4×6 – the print will have the three poses printed out to form an arrangement of all the images. We also personalise the prints to suit your occasion. Click here to view some examples of what we can offer.

 

What type of printer do you use?

 

Our photo booths only have the best quality prints. We have achieved this by only using professional, dye sublimation printers as they are the best for this type of printing. The printer provides an amazing high quality, instant dry print which is water resistant and finger print proof. Click here to view more information about our photo booth.

 

What if my guests want extra copies, can they get them online?

 

Every party or event we attend has its prints added to a folder on our Facebook Page as well as our website gallery where the personalised images are available to download for free. We won’t upload any images to our public galleries which contain children under the age of 16. All of the images are usually uploaded within 24 hours after the event. You will receive a USB stick which will contain all of the individual images as well as the personalised prints.

 

Will I be able to have digital copies of all the images?

 

We include a USB stick which will contain all of the individual images and personalised prints from the event.

 

My event has a theme and colour, can you adjust the photo booth to include this?

 

We have a selection of backgrounds available which most people find to suit their theme or colour scheme. Please contact us to find out more.

 

Can we have party information and/or company logo included on the prints?

 

We are able to add logos, messages, captions and colour schemes to personalise your prints. View some examples or contact us to find out more.

I want to book you for my event, do I have to pay a deposit?

 

We ask for a 20% non-refundable deposit when you book. This can be paid by either cash, PayPal or Bank transfer. The remaining balance should be paid 28 days before the event date.
