FAQ’s

 

What makes you different to all the other photobooth companies out there?

We believe that the aesthetic, style and quality of our booths sets us apart from the rest. Gorgeous flock wall coverings, genuine vintage 1940’s cinema seats, brass fittings and Art-Deco inspired pushbuttons combine to make our booths a perfect fit for your event or occasion. Our props are all sourced with care from various places, including theatrical companies, vintage fairs and markets. Further to this, we produce professional photographic quality images (no iPads or cheap cameras here, thank you), with professional lighting and backdrops to flatter your spiffingly beautiful features. Along with this, we also pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service from the moment you enquire to the moment you receive your images in the post.

Will you come to any location?

The answer is almost certainly! We have attended events in Berlin, France, Suffolk, York, Central London, Birmingham, Bristol, Oxford & throughout Kent and have bookings all over the country for 2016 & 2017. Simply fill out our enquiry form HERE and we will be in touch within 48 hours to let you know what we can do. 

Can we use a booth for a corporate or marketing event?

Sure! We have provided the booth to companies and branded the photos with logos, text or images as required. The booth is a perfect talking point for any product launch or marketing event and will ensure that attendees take home a memorable photo of a fantastically memorable evening. Just fill in our enquiry form HERE and add some info into the comments to let us know what you’re looking for.

What do we need to pay & when?

We request a 25% deposit of the total hire cost at the time of booking. This reserves your selected date, with the balance due 6 weeks before the event. We accept payment by direct bank transfer (BACS), cheque, cash or Paypal. We regret but are unable to take credit or debit cards at present. If your event is less than 6 weeks from booking, we do require full payment to secure your booth and date.

Are you flexible with the timings for setting up the booths?

Of course – it is your event so just tell us any challenges we may be up against when you enquire and we will work out the fine print with you. Typically, our packages will be quoted based on the booth running from 19:30-23:30; however, if you need the booth to open and close at different times, just let us know at the time of booking. Further to this, we usually require 2 hours to set up our booths and at least an hour to take them down. We are very discreet with setup and take down and have highly trained, professional staff who are sensitive to your needs. 

I have a unique/wonderful/’very me’ venue. Will you setup the booth in it?

Yes please! We love different venues and the booths are a success wherever we take them. We have run the booths on islands, in basements, in stately homes, in converted churches, in the moat’s of 1,000 year old forts, on boats and everything in between. The booths need to be inside and have access to power. Everything else is up for discussion.

Do our guests have to pay to get copies of the photos?

Not at all – booth time cannot be restricted by the coins in one’s pocket! Your hire includes, as standard, 4 hours running time and during this time you will have un-limited photos with our compliments.

Do you offer video booth functionality as well?

We do indeed. We need to know when you make your booking or at least a few weeks in advance if you are interested in adding this on.  To add this to your package, we charge an extra £150 per booking.   

Can I reprint the photos afterwards?

Yes of course! Many Photobooth companies will charge extra for this service – locking wonderful, dapper booth images away in a vault of sadness. Shame on them! Here at The Vintage Photobooth Company we are proud to deliver you a DVD with your images so you can re-print at your heart’s content, all included in your quote. We also offer a beautiful (yes they can be beautiful) USB box set if you want something a little more decadent charged at £25.

Will my pictures go on Facebook?

Ah, everyone’s favourite social media site. It is entirely up to you. We are happy to post them and you can tag to your heart’s content. If you wish to keep the antics in the booth a little more private, then we are most discreet and can upload them to a secure, password protected page on on our website. Just tell us your preference and we shall make it so. 

Can we use our own costumes instead/as well?

No problem at all – the majority of our props are labelled or marked to allow them to be differentiated from any that you would like. That said, we do have a huge range of props, costumes and accessories and may well be able to provide everything you need or would like for your event. There is a page with some details about our range of props HERE

Do we get moustaches/chalkboards/glasses as well?

We have a selection of frame-type chalkboards for you to write messages on (polite or rude). We always include a selection of stick-on moustaches in our Moustacharium and facial hair for the gentlemen (and ladies, if so inclined) together with lots of different styles and types of glasses. If you have any specific prop requests, then we’d be happy to help.

Can you build me one for my house?

We have been asked this quite a few times and would happily discuss a bespoke build for a home, child’s bedroom, bar, club, museum or tourist attraction. A booth constructed for such a purpose could include a coin-operated mechanism & be remotely managed by ourselves via the Internet to reduce the need for user maintenance – the possibilities are endless!

I’m still not convinced… Any customer testimonials?

Sorry you’re not won over yet… head over HERE and see what some of our previous customers have to say…

I have a not-so-frequently asked question. How can I get in touch?

No problem – we like you alternative types. Either email us: enquiries@thevintagephotoboothcompany.co.uk or give us a call on 07970141876. We look forward to hearing from you.
