Thinking of hiring our photobooth…but have a question? Read our frequently asked questions to see if the answer is already here.
Are your photo booths easy to use?
The great thing about our booths is we’ve designed them to be extremely easy to operate for everyone. All your guests need to do is enter the photo booth, close the curtain, push a button and pose. The series of photos are then taken and printed on our high quality photo paper using the latest thermal dye printer and collected from the slot. If anyone does need help there is always the booth attendant on hand.
Is the attendant included in the price and how long are they there for?
A fully trained booth attendant is included in the hire price and is there from setup to tear down. They are there to oversee the running of the booth for the duration of the hire and encourage your quests to have fun. The attendant is also the one who will make up the albums or key rings onsite should you choose that option.
My party is on the second floor of a building will you be able to get it in place?
Our photobooths have been designed for this very reason, the entire booth breaks down for ease of transporting and getting into venues that are either up a flight of stairs or have narrow doorways.
How long does it take to set up the photo booth?
We normally allow at least an hour before the agreed starting time to set up the booth and ensure everything is ready for your guests. Please make sure the venue knows that we are attending and has made provisions for us to unload and setup at this time.
What else do you need from the venue?
The main thing we require from the venue is an allocated space for the photo booth. The booth takes up 7’ x 4′ of floor space but we need more room than this to set it up and to allow for your guests to be able to access it, we find that 2m x 3m is perfect. If you are having the guest book option we will need an area next to the booth for a small table. The booth also needs to be sited near a mains power supply so that we can power the booth up.
How many people can fit into the photobooth?
Our booth design allows on average 3 – 4 people to fit in but if you don’t mind a squeeze and are careful it will accommodate a few more.
Can small children use the photobooth?
Of course they can, we don’t like to exclude anyone from our booths. Although children can use the booth on their own we may insist that they are accompanied or under parental supervision whilst they use the booth.
How many prints do we get included in the price?
This is dependent on your guests and how much they use it! When you hire from us you get unlimited sessions for the duration of the rental (approx 40 to 60 sessions per hour depending on guests speed etc) with either one or two prints per session depending on your package. It’s one reason we include a attendant as if the paper runs out they are there to load more. The basic package includes one print from each “photobooth session”, you can add an additional option choose to have two copies printed from each session.
What size are the prints?
Our standard size is 4×6 on the basic package on which the four poses are printed out to form a composite of all the images. We can also offer 6×8 prints where you have the choice of either having the four pictures printed once or having the four pictures printed twice in strips so that the two strips can be separated.
Are the prints colour or black & white?
That’s entirely up to your guests. Our photo booths are capable of producing colour or black & white prints so we don’t need to set the booth up for one or the other. All the user has to do is press the button of their choice and the photobooth will take care of the rest.
What type of printer do you use?
We only use professional dye sublimation printers as they are far superior for this type of printing. These are the same printers that can be found in many high street labs and in store photo kiosks, they produce extremely high quality instant dry prints. Dye sublimation prints, unlike traditional prints, also have the advantage of being water resistant and finger print proof.
What if my guests want extra copies, can they get them online?
Every party or event we attend get’s it own online Facebook gallery after the event where the composite images are available to download for free through the party’s gallery. All the images are normally available within 24 hours after the event.
Can I get digital copies of all the images?
Included in the package is a USB Key with all the images and composites from the event.
My event has a colour scheme can you incorporate it into the booth?
Of course we can. We can change the back curtain to match the colour scheme you have chosen. Please contact us to find out more.
Can we have the party information and/or company logo printed on the pictures?
That’s not a problem we can add logos, messages, captions and colour schemes to the prints and to the screen inside the booth. Please contact us to find out more.
There will be guests at my party who are in wheelchairs will they be able use it?
As part of our commitment to DDA we have designed our booths so that they are wheelchair accessible unlike some of the other types of booth. In this instance please let us know and we will set up accordingly. Please note due the nature of photobooths being a relatively small space only one wheelchair will fit at a time in the booth although other people can still fit in with them.
What areas do you cover?
We cover primarily Bournemouth, Poole New Forest, Southampton, Salisbury and Dorchester. We are happy to travel to most parts of the UK so please contact us. Please note in some areas a mileage fee and/or other travel expenses may be required. Please contact us to check.
I want to book you for my event, do I have to pay a deposit?
We ask for a non refundable deposit of £100 when you book, this can be paid by either cash or cheque. The remaining balance should be paid a month before the event.
