A photo booth walked into a bar....

Never has there been a time when people have taken more photos of themselves. First there were selfies. Then there were selfie sticks. Now comes a new phase: photo booth kiosks, which we are now offering to bars and nightclubs on long term leases. The photo booth is no longer just for the employee appreciation day or holiday party. 

When it comes to marketing your bar and getting more customers, there's a delicate balance in providing genuine value and entertainment for guests, while simultaneously taking marketing efforts to a new level.  In the age of social media, our photo booths are an effective way to engage customers, retain customers and build a brand.

Why install a photo booth at your bar?

1.       Social Sharing

In a world where people share virtually everything and spend hours on their phones, patrons of your bar can take branded photos with our photo booth, sharing their experience on social media with friends and providing you with more impressions and a larger social reach.  Each photo is branded with your logo, so the customer’s followers know exactly where they’re having a great time.

2.       Email and Phone Number Acquisition

As business owners, we are all in the business of finding new customers and getting previous customers back in the door.  Most agree that it is easier to get a previous customer back into your establishment. When a customer takes a photo with our kiosk, the photos are not printed.  Your staff don’t have to worry about changing paper and ink.  Instead, the photos are digitally delivered, the customer receives the photos by entering their email address or phone number.  You retain all the email addresses and phone numbers and have the ability to remarket to these customers.

3.       Customer Experience

Beyond adding to the customer experience, when people post their photos to social, it’s an instant endorsement of your bar and shows others what they’re missing.  Patrons aren’t merely interested in just the transaction--they're looking for an experience, to connect and develop relationships. Customers have more choices than ever about where they spend their money. To differentiate from your competition and stay relevant, businesses and brands need to bring a unique, unexpected elements to their potential and current customers.  With a photo booth installed, customers are able to see and relive they fun and excitement they felt at your establishment.

5 Questions to Ask Before You Book a Photo Booth

5 Questions to Ask Before You Book a Photo Booth

What are your fees?  We receive a lot of inquires every day and sometimes customers let us know that they've found a lower price on a Groupon or Thumbtack deal.  Later they find out that the initial quote they received didn't include all the extra "junk" fees.  Some of these companies are charging fees for mileage, delivery, setup/take down, props, scrapbooks, USB drive, extra prints, etc.  Our rates are as flat as a Midwest cornfield, they are all inclusive, we will never surprise you with an extra fee. All of our packages include, unlimited photos & prints, use of all of our props, photo strip scrapbook, custom photo strip graphic, USB drive, web-hosting, setup/take down and a friendly attendant.  

Do you have liability insurance? We know, it's a photo booth, what could possibly happen? Nothing is going to happen, but the reality is, most wedding venues require that outside services have liability insurance in place.  This question will also separate the fly-by-night companies from the serious ones. Those who just run a photo booth business on the side will not be willing to pay the costs of having insurance.  This is our only business, we live and breathe photo booths and are fully insured.  

What is the quality of the photo booth?  This is your wedding or event, it's one of the most important days of your life, and everything needs to be perfect.  The last thing you want is a beautiful reception area, with an ugly, makeshift photo booth in the corner.  We have seen some interesting photo booths out there.  Some appear to be homemade, constructed with painted wood, shower rods and curtains attached.  We did a lot of research before deciding on the photo booths we've purchased. Our booths are elegant, classy and professionally constructed.  We have had them at private estates, inside the homes of celebrities, and at the finest wedding venues.  Inside the booth we have a beautiful touch screen interface, where you can see yourself and the photos being taken.   

What are the quality of the photos? It may seem simple, but there is actually a lot that goes into capturing a high-quality photo in a photo booth.  Ask the company to see examples of past photos. Do they appear dark or is the camera flashing?  Our photo booth has studio spectrum lighting, just like the lighting used at a professional photo shoot.  This lighting insures that the photos are bright, rich and that the camera won't flash.  No camera flash means no red eye or ghost images.  Are the people washed out in the back drop?  We have seen a lot of companies that use a black or white back drop, which doesn't work out when the bride is wearing white and the groom wearing black. We use a deep, rich, red back drop which works perfect.  Be sure to ask what kind of camera the booth features?    Lastly, find out what kind of printer they use?  We use a Hiti dye-sublimation printer that prints beautiful black & white and color photos in about 10 seconds.

4 Reasons Why Your Wedding Needs a Photo Booth

  • Pure, Contagious Fun! We've taken tens of thousands of photos in our photo booth and there isn't one that depicts someone sad or bored.  As soon as guests see our photo booth a line forms and the fun begins.  The laughter and hilarity that ensues inside the photo booth is contagious.  Guests let their guard down and next thing you know, Grandma decides to let out her inner Jamaican and wear the dreads.  Not everyone will get out on the dance floor, but pretty much everyone will take a session inside our photo booth.  Our photo booth has been the hit of every event we've been to, from babies to grandparents, everyone has fun. 
  • Scrapbook for you.  We bring a beautiful scrapbook along to every wedding.  By the end of the evening the scrapbook is filled with photo strips and wonderful notes of congratulations and well wishes from family and friends.  For most of our brides this scrapbook completely replaces the standard guestbook.  You'll have this memory filled book to look at forever.  Our photo booth prints out two photo strips, your guests keep one and the other goes in your scrapbook.   
  • Keepsake for your guests.  These days anyone with a smartphone can take a photo anytime, anywhere.  But, there is something about the nostalgia of a photo booth and the fact that you receive an actual, physical photo strip.  Your guests will take home a pocketful of photos and put them on the fridge or even in frames.  Each package includes a custom photo strip graphic, tailored to your specifications, by our in-house graphic designer. Your guests will easily remember how fun your wedding day was for years to come.        
  • Digital copies for you.  Our photo booth saves each photo taken as an individual file.  Before we leave your wedding, we'll hand you a USB drive with every single photo that our booth captured.  After the honeymoon you can share these on social media, perhaps make some prints or use some for your next Christmas card.
