Frequently Asked Questions

How much space is required?

If you do not plan to set up a backdrop, the kiosk itself takes up a 3' x 3' footprint.

If you plan to set up a backdrop, it depends on the width, but usually around 8' x 8' will suffice.

Do I need WiFi?

Ideally, you'll connect your booth to WiFi so your guests can send themselves their images instantly through email or text message.

If you don’t have on-site WiFi or a hotspot, your photos will get stored in an "offline queue" until the device gets connected to a network. At that time, all images will instantly get sent.

When will my booth be delivered?

We'll ship it to you so you have it at least one business day prior to your event date.

Need it sooner? Contact us

Can I book over the phone?

Need help making decisions?

Call us at 888-902-0054 and we can help you with your booking over the phone.

How long can I use my rental?

Our booths rent by the day, not the hour…so you can use it for up to 24 hours!

If you purchase additional days, each added day is equal to a 24-hour time block.

Do I need a power source?

No!

We provide two battery packs that will last up to 8 hours (4 hours each) and can be recharged for continuous usage.

No messy cords. No trip hazards. No problems!

Do I need to set up lighting?

No, both of our camera options have a lighting source.

The Base 8MP camera has a LED light source attached with different brightness settings.

The Pro 18MP camera has a built in smart flash that will adjust to the lighting automatically no matter the environment. This is the best option for venues that are dimly lit.

All that said, any photographer knows that good light is the key to great photos, so if you can find a spot that naturally has good lighting, that'll be the cherry on top!

How far in advance do I need to place my order to take advantage of free ground shipping?

We guarantee free shipping for events that are a minimum 7 days away.

Contact us if you have a rush order!

How do I return my booth after my event?

Within one business day after your event, you’ll repack it in the same box that it was delivered in, place the return label on the box, and take it to any UPS drop-off location. That’s it!

How do guests get their images?

After each photo session, your guests can email or text their pictures to up to 5 people.

What's the difference between the "Base 8MP" camera and the "Pro 18MP" camera?

The Pro 18MP camera takes really crisp high-resolution photos and works great in every lighting scenario.

The Base 8MP camera is is the better option if you're on a budget.

What is the difference between the design options "Standard" and "Customized"?

Standard design includes our classic booth interface without any customization options, like logos, graphics or frames. This is a great option if you have a busy backdrop or are going for a clean, classic look.

Customized design allows you to use our templates or to work with our designers to create your very own branded booth experience. Great for wedding themes and monograms, or for corporate events to add logos.

Can the GIF booth also take regular photos?

You bet!

Our GIF Booth gives you the option to choose to take a photo or a GIF. There is a button on the left that says Tap for Photo and a button on the right that says Tap for GIF.

For the Green Screen Booth, is the physical green screen included?

Yes, we provide you with a green screen (chroma key) backdrop that includes the stand.
