Below you’ll find 5 tips to assist you in choosing the most appropriate photobooth for you event.
#1 Location Is Everything
If you’re booking your event venue knowing you’ll have a photo booth there, be sure to choose a venue that’ll be big enough for the booth to set up. If this is something you have decided after you have made a booking, the standard size of the booths are around 3m x 3m. This again will be dependent on the type of photo booth you select.
#2 Choosing The Type Of Photo Booth
Thanks to the many technological advancements, the way we know photobooths have changed! As there is now a large variety of photo booths, the technology can be adapted to fit the shell of the photo booth. At boothnation, the following booths are on offer:
● The inflatable booth ● Selfie pod 2.0 ● The mini photo booth pod ● Curved enclosed booth ● Retro styled photo booth
#3 Choosing Your Photo Booth Backdrop
Surprisingly enough, the backdrop is an important consideration to bare in mind when deciding on where you’ll be setting the photo booth up. You can choose if you want a backdrop with a custom background, an open air backdrop with the view in the background, or if you prefer the booth to be enclosed.
#4 Will Guests Be Standing or Sitting
This links very closely to where you set up your photobooth and how much space is available. To ensure a much smoother transition between each picture, having your guests stand when they take their picture is recommended. You can give guests the option to sit just as long as they’re a smaller group, and are willing not to use as many props. That way you’ll avoid any sort of injury!
#5 Hard Copies or Digital
This is a tough decision for most as you want to give guests the best of both worlds. Often there is a lot of wastage when it comes to prints as there sometimes can be a backlog in printing. Guests sometimes forget to come back for their prints and results in wastage printer paper and ink.
To avoid having this at your event, consider using a digital photobooth where guests can email the photos directly to themselves. That way, they don’t have to carry prints around throughout the event to avoid them getting damaged.
