Is there a charge for travel expenses?

If your event is within a 30 mile radius of our headquarters in Wolverhampton, then there will be no charge for travel. For any events beyond this a small charge may need to be added but we are happy to travel across the West Midlands, Shropshire, Staffordshire and beyond.

How much space do you need for your photo booth and mirror?

Please allow a space of 4m x 4m for us to set up the photo booth or mirror which gives us space for a table to display our range of props and for guests to sign the guest book.

 

How will my photos be printed?

All photos will be printed using state-of-the-art thermal dye sublimation printers, as used by photo processing companies all over the world. These ensure all photos are delivered touch dry and waterproof in seconds.

How many copies of the photo booth or mirror will I receive?

The hire price includes unlimited visits to the photo booth or mirror for the period of the hire. We print two copies of each photo, one for the guest and one for them to put into the personalised guest book with a message. Additional copies can be ordered after the event by contacting us directly.

Do you supply staff with your equipment?

Yes, unlike many other companies we always provide a minimum of two highly experienced and professional staff to ensure that your event runs smoothly and to ensure that you get the best quality photographs and service.

What is the guestbook and how does it work?

The guestbook is a high quality, personalised book that features all of the pictures taken at your event which will be available at the end of the photo booth or selfie mirror hire period. These can be customised with your names, event date and to tie in with your colour scheme. We also provide a number of silver gel pens to allow guest to leave their own personalised messages alongside their pictures.

Will we get a copy of the pictures too?

Yes. The event organiser will also receive a USB stick containing all photos and video.

Will our guests be able to view all of the photos?

Do I need to pay a deposit?

Yes. A £50 deposit is required to secure your date with the remaining balance due 10 days prior to your event taking place or in cash on the night. Payment can be provided by BACS transfer or by cheque. Direct debits can be set up by arrangement to spread the cost.
