FREQUENTLY asked questions

Below you’ll find answers to the questions we get asked the most about hiring a photo booth.

HOW DOES THE BOOTH WORK?

It’s very simple.  You step up, choose from colour or black and white photos and smile!  Once the pictures have been taken they are printed out moments later on our high-speed photo printer.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SET UP?

Once we have the equipment inside the venue it takes around 45 minutes to get set up and ready to go.

HOW MUCH SPACE IS REQUIRED?

The ideal area needed for both the open and enclosed booths is 5m x 4m (16ft x 13ft).  This will allow space for the booth, props, guest book table and space for people to move around.

The inflatable wall is 2.4m wide x 2.4m tall.

The enclosed booth is 3m wide x 2.4m deep x 2.4m tall.

If the inflatables are too tall for your venue then we do carry a variable-height cloth backdrop just in case.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN FIT IN THE BOOTH?

In the Open Booth you can fit around 15 people in a single photo!

For the Enclosed Booth, you can safely fit 10 people inside.

DO I GET A USB MEMORY STICK OF THE IMAGES?

Unfortunately we don’t supply them anymore in our packages as you can download all the original, high-resolution images from our gallery.  If you would like a memory stick we can supply one if you wish for an additional fee.

CAN I CUSTOMISE THE PRINTS?

Of course!  You can choose from a number of styles or tell us about your theme and our designers will come up with something unique just for you!

HOW MANY PRINTS DO I GET?

Our most popular package includes 2 sets of prints.  One is for the people in the picture and the other can be stuck inside your guest book.  If you want an extra copy here and there it’s not a problem at all, just let us know and we’ll print another.

We do have a package that includes prints for everyone so check out our prices page for more information!

DO YOU HAVE public LIABILITY INSURANCE?

Yes, we do!  We are fully insured with cover up to £10m in the highly unlikely event that you or one of your guests is injured through using the booth.

CAN WE SPLIT UP OUR HIRE PERIOD?

Absolutely.  This is great if you want the booth between 4pm and 6pm and again between 8pm and 10pm.  In this case you would need 2hrs of idle time (between 6pm and 8pm).  Idle time is charged at £30 per hour.

HOW SOON AFTER THE PARTY WILL MY GALLERY BE AVAILABLE?

We guarantee to have your pictures available in our online gallery no later than 48hrs after your party.  In most cases, we upload the pictures that evening when we get home!

CAN WE BRING OUR OWN PROPS?

Absolutely not a problem at all.  At the end of the hire, we will gather them up and give them back to you!
