How many prints do we get in an hour?The answer cannot be exact because of time spent having laughs and positioning guests in a booth. The booth Auto system counts down 3.2.1. Four times with an average session of 2 – 3 minutes. Hence 30 to 20 sessions or Prints per hour. No maximum limit to the number of prints. Only limit is the booked time.
Does an EPBA Booth print a pair of strips is printed and cut automatically in 7.5 seconds?No, we print a matching tear off pair of photo strips each having 3 or 4 photos just taken. Usually one strip is reserved for the host’s album and the other to the paired guests.
If I have 120 guests what would you recommend the minimum number of hours should be reserved so that all my guests have at least one process use of the booth?The answer to Question 1. Indicates that the friendliest average use of a photo session is 3 minutes .That means 20 sessions per hour. For best calculations consider that each session usually has two people in the booth. Some times a lot more are challenged. Hence 120 guests equal 60 pairs or sessions. Each session takes 3 minutes and this means 3 hours minimum is recommended. Most hosts understand that guests often come back for more photos with other partners…. Please seriously consider adding an hour for that fun element. We offer incentives to book 4 hours.
Do you start the rental clock on arrival and finish precisely to the contracted times?A. We start the contracted time when the photo sessions start usually within an hour of arrival and set up. Then at the end of that contracted time we ask the host to decide if they wish a short extension to be paid by the hour extension of $150. Our Operators are paid by the hour and we respect the arrangements for both parties.
Do you supply photo albums?At present we have a Bonus offer of a Free Deluxe Album for bookings of 4 hours or more. Less than 4 hours there is an extra charge of $50 includes GST. The colour choice is limited to black covers.
When will the operator and the booth arrive?Usually both arrive 1 hour before event booking time. But special arrangements may be needed where the booth arrives separately.
What if there are steps, escalators lifts low or narrow door ways impeding delivery?It is the responsibility of the hirer to review access conditions at their venue and advise us of these conditions. We have a choice and offer the most flexible and suitable photo Booths on the market which will over come most delivery issues.
