FAQ

Is it actually a proper photobooth?

We thought long and hard about the design of our photobooths. We believe that sit-down booths, for several reasons are fundamentally better than other options. As well as being a design classic, they are also technically superior, producing far better images and prints. This creates an intimate and authentic photobooth experience, and once you sit down behind the curtain anything can happen!

Does It take good quality photos?

It sure does! We spent a long time getting the lighting design of our booth just right. It is as good as a small studio, we get lots of comments about how good our prints look and a lot of this is to do with our great lighting. Our printers are state of the art and are the best high speed photo printers available. This, in combination with DSLR photo quality and studio quality lighting mean that our final print quality is exceptional. The separate image files that are saved to disk are good enough for enlargement to A4.

Are there any limits to the number of prints allowed during a hire?

No, there is no limit. Photobooth use and printing is unlimited during the hire period. Every time you push the button, two copies of the photostrip will be printed instantly, one for you and one for your guests.

Can you provide a digital copy of the photos?

We sure can and it’s included in the price. We will set you up with a password protected online gallery of all the individual photos and photo strips taken.

Can you provide a second set of prints and an album?

The Photobooths automatically print two copies of every photo strip, one for your guests to take away and one for your album. We have a great album available for purchase, check out the pricing page under extra’s for costs.

Do you travel and what do you charge?

We sure do. We are based in Christchurch and we don’t charge if your event is within 30km of the city. Outside of this we are happy to travel anywhere in the South Island and we charge travel at 60 cents per km.

How big is the booth?

We have 2 photobooths available for hire. The smaller Classic booth is perfect for 2 people and can fit 3 at a squeeze. While the larger Deluxe booth will comfortably fit 3 people, or up to 5 at a squeeze. Both share the same great photo quality, the only differences between them is their physical size and outward appearance.

How long do I need to hire the booth for?

How many guests have you got? For 50 guests or less, a 2 hour hire will be enough, for 50 to 100 guests a 3 hour hire is a good time, for 100 or more a 4hr hire is about right. This of course all depends on how many photobooth addicts attend!

Do you provide a costume box?

Heck Yes! Costumes are one of the most important factors of a successful photobooth session. Whether it’s a mask, some silly glasses or a policeman’s hat, costumes just add to the fun and keep your guests coming back for more. If you’re hiring us for a themed event let us know and we’ll see if we can tailor our costume box to suit your event.
