Photo Booth Sharing Station – A Guide

Photo Booths have been a huge trend in the last few years. With more weddings being set outside, more people are now opting to have their pictures taken on the wedding day and then have them put into a custom printed photo booth. With the growing popularity of photo booths, there has been an increase in the number of companies that are creating these for you. Some of these companies offer not only single use, but multiple photo booth rental options as well.

For those that are looking to save money, and don’t want to pay for a whole photo booth rental, there is a way to go about renting one. The most popular option is to purchase a custom printed, durable, and attractive photo booth for the day. A great way to advertise for your event is to allow guests to take home their very own custom printed booth to take home with them. Most people love these, and when given the choice, will rent out the photo booth for the entire duration of the event.

However, for this option to be worth its purchase price, there are a few things to consider before purchasing. One of these items is storage. How much room do you have to store your photos in a custom printed, durable box? Many are only able to keep about 4 photos at maximum. For others, the answer is more like hundreds of photos – not enough room for the big picture.

Another item to think about is if you want to utilize the back of the photo booth for storage, or if you would rather display it elsewhere. Most booths have rigid plastic panels that slide down and latch onto the back of your booth. If you opt to keep them inside, you need to make sure that they are completely protected from moisture and other factors that could cause them to warp or tear. If you plan on displaying the photos on the outside of the booth, you also must make sure that they are protected from wind and other elements. A good suggestion would be a custom printed back panel that can be placed over the photo so that they can be protected from flying debris, and/or dust.

There is another option, however. If you are using a more expensive, high quality photo booth, and you aren’t planning on taking and displaying many pictures, you can save some money by investing in a small, portable photo booth. These tend to only hold around four or five pictures at most, but because they are so small, they are very portable and lightweight.

When shopping for your custom photo booth rental, it is important to choose a box that is made of thick, sturdy material. This will ensure that the pictures will be as safe as possible during transportation. They also don’t need to be extremely aesthetically pleasing, as they were designed to store photos, not to be displayed on a shelf. For display, opt for a clear plastic box with a handle. These boxes can be found at most party rental stores or even online.

One final option would be to purchase a “rolling photo booth” or “photo ark”. These devices are similar to the typical temporary storage shelves that you have seen at fairs or swap meets. The difference is that they have wheels that allow them to be rolled across the floor, rather than being stuck to the surface. Some people use these as a means of taking their family photos around the house and into the backyard, or possibly to other sites in their neighborhood that may not have access to an indoor photo booth. You can also save money by purchasing one of these devices as opposed to renting a larger box.

Regardless of what type of photo booth sharing system you ultimately choose, it is important to be prepared ahead of time so that you can properly set it up. Check with your local rental outlet to see what is available. There should be plenty of staff members available to help you with the setup, as well as instructions on how to successfully use the system once it is installed. Being prepared will save you time and money in the long run.
