Thinking of hiring one of our photo booths…but have a question? Read our frequently asked questions to see if the answer is already here, if you can't find the answer please call us or send us an email.
Q: Are your photo booths easy to use?
A: The great thing about our photo booths is that they are extremely easy to operate, all your guests need to do is choose some props, enter the photo booth and pose, the booth attendants will do the rest. The series of photos are then taken and instantly printed on high quality photo paper using a thermal dye sublimation printer.
Q: Are the attendants included in the price and how long are they there for?
A: Two fully trained booth attendants are included in the hire price and are there from setup to pack away. They are there to oversee the running of the booth for the duration of the hire and encourage your guests to have fun. The attendants will also make up the albums or key rings should you choose that option.
Q: My party is on the second floor of a building will you be able to get it in place?
A: Our photo booths have been designed for this very reason, the entire photo booth breaks down for ease of transportation and getting into venues that are either up a flight of stairs or have narrow doorways.
Q: How long does it take to set up the photo booth?
A: We normally arrive at least 90 minutes 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.
Q: What else do you need from the venue?
A: The main thing we require from the venue is an allocated space for the photo booth. The booth takes up 2m x 1m 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 extra 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 it up, we only require one standard socket.
Q: How many people can fit into the photo booth?
A: Our photo booths can easily fit 4 people in but if you don't mind a squeeze and are careful they will accommodate a few more.
Q: Can small children use the photo booth?
A: Of course they can we don't like to exclude anyone from our photo booth. Although children can use the photo booth on their own we may ask that they are accompanied or under parental supervision whilst they use the booth.
Q: How many prints do we get included in the price?
A: 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 attendants as if the paper runs out they are there to load more.
Q: What size are the prints?
A: 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 also offer a 8x6 option please ask for a quote if you would like this option.
Q: Are the prints colour or black & white?
A: 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 photo booth will take care of the rest.
Q: What type of printer do you use?
A: 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.
Q: What if my guests want extra copies?
A: All they have to do is phone our office with their print reference (on photo) to order, prices are dependant on amount of copies/postage.
Q: Can I get digital copies of all the images?
A: Included in the package is a USB stick with all the images from the event.
Q: Can we have the party information and/or company logo printed on the pictures?
A: That's not a problem we can add logos, messages, captions and colour schemes to the prints and to the screen inside the photo booth and also to the outside of the photo booth. Please contact us to find out more.
Q: There will be guests at my party who are in wheelchairs will they be able use it?
A: Our booths are wheelchair accessible unlike some other types of booth. If you have special requirements to do with accessibility for your guests please let us know in advance and we will set up accordingly. Please note due the nature of photo booths 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.
Q: I want to book you for my event, do I have to pay a deposit?
A: We ask for a non-refundable deposit of £75 when you book, this can be paid by credit card, debit card, or bank transfer. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the event. If your event is within 30 days of you booking it, full payment will be required.
Q: What is idle time?
A: Idle time is £25 per hour. We charge this if you would like the photo booth to be set up earlier in the day. Please advise us of this in advance.
