A Photo Booth Hire can sometimes be a nightmare to organise with so many options available. Here is our list of 10 things you need to know about a photo booth hire.
1: SIZE MATTERS
You may have acres of space available and a backdrop can be placed quite some distance from the photo pod allowing for huge group shots and photo-bombing opportunities galore. Or, you may only have a smaller space requiring the photo booth operator to be willing to work with what is available. Good photo booth providors will be happy to advise you on all possibilities. An enclosed booth or a standalone photopod with or without a backdrop.
2: PHOTO SIZE MATTERS
Small passport sized photographs are hardly likely to inspire you to retain your memento in pride of place in your home. Make sure you receive both high resolution digital images and decent sized prints. Our huge 9 inches by 6 inches gloss photos definitely fit the bill, and they are digitally produced at a high resolution allowing you to enlarge them even further with no loss of quality.
3: QUALITY, QUALITY, QUALITY
Do not settle for anything less than top quality equipment. Cheap imported booths with low cost printers are not designed to produce the kind of quality finish you deserve time after time. Poor photographs will never stir happy memories of your big event, so don’t settle for anything but the best. Our printers can easily print upwards of 400 high quality huge sized prints in one session. Why settle for anything less?

Props bring an added level of fun to proceedings, and good quality props are essential. The facility to add “stickies” to photos after they are taken, just like Facebook and Instagram is another popular feature. Don’t miss out. For a Corporate setup the opportunity to brand every photo with you company logo should be a consideration, along with a suitable backdrop feature.
7: SOCIAL MEDIA
A good photo booth will have the facility to send chosen photos directly to social media and email. Share photos to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Also, all photos taken during the photo booth hire should be added to a pen drive or USB stick if required, and also made available for online download. These are basic requirements for a quality photo booth hire.
8: FULLY STAFFED
If required, a member of staff should be on hand to keep things running smoothly. Some companies give this a silly name, but we prefer to say fully trained member of staff. It says what it means and means what it says.
As with anything nowadays it pays to ensure your photo booth operator is fully insured with Public Liability Insurance and that the equipment is PAT tested (Portable Appliance testing)
