FAQs – Questions

Our FAQs are designed to provide a better understanding of our Photo Booth, our services, and what sets us apart from the other folks.

How does your Photo Booth work?

Well, guests and party-goers situate themselves inside the booth. Instructions will display on the screen,  where guests will also be able to see themselves via a live video feed. Then, your guests will press the button to begin the madness. The booth will take 4 or 5 consecutive photos (depending on the layout chosen), within 5 seconds of each other. The screen will update after each photo, informing guests of the next step.  After the last photo is taken, the pictures will print out within seconds and will be available at the side of the booth. Our on-site booth attendant will assist your guests in obtaining their print and placing it in the guestbook, if one is provided or purchased.

I want to brand the booth for my event. Do you offer this?

We offer several different options for customization including: Custom graphics on all the lower cabinet panels, Custom graphics on the 2 main upper unit side panels and options in between!

We can also customize the prints themselves with your theme, logo, name, colors, etc!

How does the photo booth provide favors for guests?

A personalized logo can be designed and printed on all the photos. Your guests will actually want to keep and display these photos. With the photo booth, your guest will be creating the favors themselves, as many as they like, and have a great time doing it. If your guest enjoys their picture they can have even have it printed larger after the event by ordering it from us.

Is there anyone to assist me during my event?

An attendant is there at all events. We will answer all your questions and provide solutions in a prompt and courteous manner.

Can my guests choose between Color or Black & White photos, or do I have to make the choice ahead of time?

You can either make the choice ahead of time, or you can allow your guests to choose for themselves (typical).

How many people can fit into the photo booth at one time?

We have a few options in our setup. This is typically based on the space available at the event, and the way you want it setup. Remember that we offer both an enclosed and open-air style booth.  We have gotten 15+ in the pictures!

What exactly is an “open-air” booth?

Basically, we setup our photo booth tower which has no curtains or anything else around it. This is great if you have very limited space, or if you have a lot of space and want large group pictures. We can even setup a red carpet and various backdrops (even custom ones) to take the pictures with!

How much room do you need to set up the Photo Booth?

As stated above, space will vary based on the setup we are doing for your event. I would say a minimum space would be 2’x5′, with an average more around 4’x8′. We also need space for our table for the photobook, etc. Our larger backdrop setup could require up to a 10’x10′ or larger area if that is what you want. We can explain space requirements when we all decide on your specific setup.

The space should be within 8 feet of an electrical outlet that will provide adequate electricity to power our equipment. A 3-prong electrical outlet is needed.

What is your Service Area, and how far will you travel?

Our typical service area encompasses the Greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Commute fees will be applied to all travel over 30 miles from Plano. Commute fees are based on the distance traveled.

Can the photo booth fit in a passenger elevator?

Yes! We can even accommodate some stairs, but we would need to see the location prior to committing to using them.

How long does it take for the photos to be posted to your website?

12 to 48 hours.

Our event will be outdoors, can you accommodate us?

Yes, we can accommodate outdoor events. However, we will require a concrete-like surface to set up on. This area must be within 8 feet of an adequate electrical supply to power our equipment. In addition, you will need to provide a tent or other water-proof structure to house our booth under. We will also require you to sign a statement of liability, stating that you will be responsible for any damages caused to the booth due to weather and other exterior elements.

Do you have a limit on the number of photos that we can take during our event?

No, you and your guests can take as many photos in the Photo Booth as you like, within your allotted time frame.  Our booth can handle up to 100 photo sessions per hour.

What kind of printer do you use, and are the prints of good quality?

We use professional Dye-Sublimation Printers. Our ultra-fast printers have the ability to produce a 4″x6″ print  in as little as 11 seconds, making our booths some of the fastest in town! And, because our printers use Thermal Dye Sublimation technology, they produce durable, water-resistant prints that last a lifetime. (Our prints have survived a trip through the washing machine and came out in tact.)

Can we bring our own guestbook or album?

Yes, in fact, we welcome you to bring your own. We offer guestbooks/albums as a courtesy to our clients, helping to reduce the planning load. If you purchase an album from us, we will also gladly supply all of the supplies to put your album together including adhesive and pens or markers. However, if you opt to purchase your guestbook elsewhere, we ask that you also provide your own supplies to assemble the book. We can provide you with a list of recommended materials.

If we decide to bring our own guestbook, will you assist my guests with placing their photos into the album and signing it?

Absolutely! We provide an on-site booth attendant to assist you with your needs related to the Photo Booth. So, we will gladly place the prints into the book and make sure that your guests sign next to their photos. We want you and your guests to have fun, rather than worry about whether or not the photos actually made it into your album. Please understand, however, that if you have a complicated scrapbook with stickers, fancy paper and/or a lot of extras, we will ask that you provide your own assistant to help put the book together.

Do you have any suggestions on how to make sure that all of our guests use the Photo Booth as many times as they would like?

Yes. We recommend that you promote the Photo Booth within the event to make sure that your guests know that it is available for use FREE of charge. Perhaps, arrangements can be made for your MC or DJ to make an announcement or two during your event. Another idea is to place a tent card at each table, or a note at each place setting, instructing guests to visit the photo booth.

Based on the event, place the booth in a popular area such as near the bar or dance floor. We would suggest you let your guests know where it is and that it is available to them at no cost. You can also have us provide an external monitor to display the shenanigans occurring in the booth (this always draws a crowd.

How much do you charge for idle hours?

This happens quite frequently. We charge $50 extra per hour of idle time. Some customers choose to have the booth run for a one hour cocktail hour. Have it idle for an hour during dinner and then have it run for a couple more hours during the reception as well. Another situation could be that you need us to set up more then 1 hour ahead of the rental period.
