How does the booth actually work?

It’s so simple it’s almost magic. People approach the booth, whether having grabbed a prop or not, and can see themselves in the mirror. There is a touchscreen prompt that guides the user through the photo taking session. 

Once the images are complete guests are asked to leave the booth to pick up their prints from the printing station.

You can choose the option to have an attendant there to help your guests with the process.

Do you have to operate the Booth?

Operating the booth is simple! It's as simple as loading a printer with paper. Just like other printers, there is the small chance that it could jam. This may require someone with the savvy to do a quick fix. We provide a handy instructional document on how to use and operate the booth with your rental. 

If you'd rather not worry about it during your event, you can add on one of our helpful attendants! 

How to make sure the Booth is a hit with your guests? 

There are definitely a few things you can do to make sure your booth is on point.

Placement – Make sure the booth is accessible and close to the action. 

Get the word out! Let your DJ, MC or bandleader know that getting people in the booth is a priority and that you hope for an announcement and reminders throughout the evening. Also appoint a few ambassadors, such as moms and key event personnel to remind folks to pay the booth a visit.

Take ownership of the booth experience and personalize it to be a reflection of you, your interests and what’s important to you. While we provide awesome props and backdrops to make those memories sparkle, you have the power and insight to make your booth one of a kind for your special event.
