Please give us a call or use the contact form if you have any questions. We are here to help.
How much do you charge for travel?
Travel is free within 100 miles of our base in Bournemouth; a small charge may need to be added to events further away.
What are the sizes of the photo booths?
All of the The Party Photo Booths require an area of approximately 2m x 3m to operate smoothly on the night. They require a flat, solid level floor, close to a wall with a standard 13amp power socket within 3m of the booth and a small table next to it. If you want it to go in a marquee then it will need to be about 1m from the wall. It requires about 2.5m headroom.
Do you stay with the photo booth?
We always have at least one member of staff attend your event to take care of everything for you.
Do you have insurance?
Yes, we carry a 5m Public Liability Insurance; all our booths are also electrically PAT tested - available on request.
How long does it take you to set up the photo booth?
It takes us approximately one hour to set up. Set up time is not charged and this time is not counted as part of your run time. However, if a booth has to be set up by,say, 2pm because of your event’s specific circumstances, but is not running until 6pm, we do charge a modest hourly rate for idle time.
How much deposit do I need to pay?
We ask for a £150 non-refundable retainer to secure your date then the remaining balance is due 14days prior to your event. Payment can be by cheque made payable to The Party Photo Booth Company or by bank to bank balance transfer. Please make sure you quote either the date or your invoice! If you wish, pay by instalments - please ask us when booking.
Can our guests view the images after the event?
Yes, after your event we upload the photos to our Gallery page on our web site, and upload the most important photos to our Facebook page so your guests can view them, tag, and save to their own computer. We will send you all the data files the day after your event (the photo album comes to you at the end of the evening).
If you do not want the photos placed up on our Facebook page please let us know when booking.
What are the print sizes?
Can we have colour or black & white prints?
If you choose, your guests can choose to have colour, or black & white prints per visit via the touch screen monitor.
What printers do you use?
We use high quality, speedy, thermal dye sublimation printers (Mitsubishi). The prints are fast, touch dry and water proof immediately allowing your guests to walk away with a copy.
What cameras do your booths use?
Our photo booths use high end professional DSLR cameras (currently we choose to use Canon).
Does the photobooth have a seat?
We have three types of photo booth. Our traditional booth has a seat and can fit about 5 people at a time. Our open booths (Mirror and Selfie) do not have seats and are ideal fro larger groups.
How does the guest book work?
We set the photo booth up to print unlimited copies of each set of pictures (1 copy for each poerson in the picture). There is an extra copy for the guest book. The booth butler will encourage everyone to write a message with their picture.
Do you have any suggestions on choosing an area for the Photobooth?
Try and position the photobooth close to the action but away from the bar and the band / disco. The former because drinks and electrics don’t mix. The latter because the lighting may interfere with the operation of hte photo booth. You should also think about the “flow” of your guests - where are they coming from and how are they going to get away.
Do you offer your photobooths in different colours or themes other than the one showing on your website?
Yes, if you are planning for a certain colour scheme we can change the backdrop for the images to suit your occasion with ease. We can also swap the whole colour scheme of the Photobooth but we have found that by simply changing the colour of the entrance curtain can make it look very different. Please give us a call for more details.
Can props be supplied to add to the fun?
A ‘prop box’ of accessories, such as hats, glasses, wigs, feather boas etc will be brought to your event as part of the package. If there is a particular theme to your event let us know and we will try and source props that reflect this.
Can the photobooth go in a marquee?
Yes we can set up our photobooth in a marquee but the floor of the marquee needs to be as flat & level as possible. We do bring wedges with us but the booth does need to be stable.
