Q.) How much of a deposit is required to reserve my date?
A.) We require only a $200 deposit to formally book your date. Your $200 goes towards your rental price and locks up a specific photo booth and attendant in your specific market.
Q.) Is the deposit refundable?
A.) Unfortunately we can not refund your deposit. Once you officially book with us by paying the $200 deposit, our wheels start moving. We automatically lock up a specific photo booth and attendant for your date while our graphics department begins to work on your “overlay” for the on-site prints. Unfortunately, since we incur costs up front, we can not refund your deposit.
Q.) Do you charge extra for setup and teardown time?
A.) No. If you have hired us for 6 hours and your event goes until midnight, our photo booth will be completely set up and ready to go no later than 6 PM If you require additional time, we charge only $100 per hour for overtime. Furthermore, if you require the booth to be set up by 4pm but not running till 6pm, we charge a modest $25 per hour for idle time. So this example would cost an extra $50.
Q.) Does the rental include a photo booth attendant?
A.) Yes. A professional attendant will be present during the entire rental period to help your guests operate and maximize their photo booth experience.
Q.) Does the rental include free props?
A.) Yes. Beginning March of 2012, all Party Booths rentals began including free props. You can check out what’s included by clicking on the “Props” tab above. If you prefer a more formal photo booth rental, simply choose “NO” on your event questionnaire and we will not bring any props to your event.
Q.) How long does it take for our pictures to be posted to the internet?
A.) Most photo booth galleries are posted only 1-3 business days following the event. On rare occasions it may take a few days longer. There is no additional charge for this web posting service and with Party Booths, your gallery will be online for an entire year!
Q.) Can we choose to have our photo booth galleries password protected?
Q.) Do you provide a copy of our digital images?
A.) Absolutely. Shortly after receiving the email containing a link to view your new online web gallery, you will receive another email containing a download link. Simply click this link and your high resolution digital files will begin downloading directly to your computer.
Q.) Are prints included with your rental rates?
A.) Absolutely. Yes they are. Each photo booth session takes four pictures which are then printed seconds later on a single 4×6 index print for your guests to keep. Our rental rates include unlimited sessions and an individual index print of each session. We also offer optional add-ons such as double prints which you guessed it, give you 2 copies of each session.
Q.) Can we choose color or B&W prints?
A.) Absolutely. Yes. You may also choose sepia. What’s more, even though you may choose B&W index prints for the day of your event, the image files we provide for you still allow the option of reprinting the same images in color, B&W or sepia if you choose.
Q.) Can we have a special message displayed on our index prints?
A.) Absolutely! Our clients typically choose to have their names and their event date printed on their index prints. However, any unique messages, graphics, logos, etc can be displayed at no additional charge. Our graphics guys will email you a proof of how your overlay will look for your review. Feel free to have us make any changes you like as we are not happy, until you are happy!
Q.) When is the final payment due?
A.) We require final payment 14 days prior to the event. This allows us to make all the final arrangements to ensure your event goes off perfectly smooth.
Q.) Can we choose a different layout configuration for our print outs?
A.) No. Yes. Beginning March of 2012, we now offer 6 different print configurations to choose from. Click on the “Customize It” tab above to view the different choices.
Q.) Can we choose the color of the background?
A.) Yes, we have 4 different colors of backgrounds to choose from. Red, Blue, Brown, and Pink. You can view samples under the “Sample Galleries” link at the top of this page. You can also provide your own if you choose. Our backdrops measure 5 feet wide by 7 feet tall. Make sure it is not a shiny or “glittery” fabric as this will reflect the flash.
Q.) What are the dimensions of your photo booths?
A.) Our Booths measures approximately 7′ tall by 6′ wide by 5′ deep. When coordinating an area for the booth, keep in mind that we need space for a small table (which must be provided for us) to hold our printer(s). The printer can go on either side of the booth.
Q.) Do you require a damage deposit?
Q.) Do you have any suggestions on choosing an area for the photo booths?
A.) We recommend that you try and position the photo booth as close to the action as possible. This way you and your guests will get more use out of it than if it were located in another room away from the party.
Q.) What happens if a guest takes an inappropriate picture?
A.) We do a quick review of all of the files before posting them to the web gallery however, sometimes we miss some pretty interesting pictures! If you spot some inappropriate stuff on your gallery, contact us and we will remove it right away.
Q.) Do you offer photo booths in different colors other than black with a red curtain?
A.) Not really, we can however have a custom cover made for you in any color you wish if you are planning for a certain color scheme. The cost is $400 plus materials. The red doorway curtain can be changed to a different color for free, or you can bring your own. Please give us a call for more details.
Q.) Your photo booth is seemingly so much better than others, why is it also less expensive?
A.) Absolutely. Our photo booths were custom designed and built exclusively for weddings and other grand occasions. They utilize professional lighting equipment and quality digital cameras for superior image quality. Our photo booths are larger than vending machine-type booths yet they are much easier and therefore less expensive to transport. They are also cleaner and much more attractive than some of our competitors’ booths, which in some cases, are literally decades old.
