What is a Social Booth?

Social Booth Explained

I bet you know exactly what a Photo Booth is, right? I mean you haven’t been living under a rock, have you? Everyone know what a Photo Booth is. But not everyone knows what a Social Booth is. And that’s what we’re here to tell you about!

Social Booth

The Basics

Let’s start with the basics here so you don’t get confused about what a Social Booth is. It’s a Photo Booth…but…on steroids..AND…if you can even imagine it…it costs less! You get a real photo booth capturing the real fun at your event for the fraction of the cost. Now, you might be wondering why we’d (or any company really) would offer you a better version of a Photo Booth Rental that’s less money. 

Social Booth Cost

If you’ve read our other blogs you know we just keep it real here. So, we’re going to be honest with you. We can offer the Social Booth for less because it costs us less! Why? No paper, no ink, no printer. Well, what is the point of a photo booth without prints? A LOT!! All you need is a WIFI signal and our booth will actually TEXT your guests a copy of their visit. And that’s where the name comes from. You’re being social with your visit by sharing it with others. Text away, share on Facebook, Instagram, or send it to granny in an email. Be social with it. 

Social Booth

How’s It Work?

So, basically a Social Booth works the same as a regular Photo Booth rental up until the time the prints normally come out. Instead of hooking up to a printer, the booth attendant will hook up to your venues WIFI connection. Then, at the end of their visit your guests will be asked to enter their telephone number into the booth, which will text them from an internet phone number that’s programmed into the booth. They’ll get a cute little image showing off their photo booth posing skills. It comes as a 4X6 postcard style graphic with anywhere from 1-3 images in it. (Wanna see what it looks like? I put a recent rentals image below.)

How Can I Customize The Experience?

The Classic Social Booth Rental comes with the booth, a backdrop, and props. You pick your choice of 6 Themes that we have available. Each theme has matching backdrop, prop set, greeting screen, and digital template that goes along with it. We automatically customize the digital template to put your info in it. So, for example we can edit the graphic to say “Happy Birthday John!!” or “Anchors Away to Megan” or whatever else your event is about. 

But for some people they want more….and there are a few upgrades that you can add on or you can order our Premium Social Booth with all the fixings. We can offer things like a GIF upgrade so instead of a 4X6 postcard your guests get a square graphic frame with an actual loop GIF of their visit in it. Or you can add on a Digital Download of all your event files so you get a copy too! Our premium upgrade comes with completely customized graphics so we’ll design something just for you. We can match school colors, insert special graphics, change fonts, or even use an existing photo in the design!

Real Booth or Cheap Knock Off?

I looked online for “Photo Booth for Graduation”. What I found was a bunch of articles on how to create a DIY Photo Booth. But, lets be honest. It’s not the same. Why stress yourself out trying to plan and buy everything you need when you can spend the same amount of money by calling a pro and save yourself the time and headache.

There are clear advantages to hiring a Professional Photo Booth Rental. First, the obvious reason: The professional does this every single week and they know what they are doing. They deal with all the hassle of creating your booth design, strip design, bringing professional equipment, set up, tear down, etc. It’s easy for you to just tell them what you want and sit back and say cheese. A DIY booth requires you to buy all the materials to make a backdrop and you have to haul it in and set it up yourself. You also have to purchase your own props and cameras. And after all that work and money you don’t even get a cool Photo Strip with your names and date on it. You get a regular old 4X6 photo of your guests that you hope Uncle Frank didn’t get his thumb in the way of while he was taking it with the disposable camera you left out for him to use. There’s no guarantee that any of your hard work will pay off.

Why Rent OUR Photo Booth for Graduation?

Picture if you will a Photo Booth for Graduation unlike any other. That’s right. Completely unique and customized exactly the way you want it. We offer everything from a choice of Prop Themes to Customized Print Templates.

Unique Prop Themes

What’s your angle? Are you a sci-fi nerd? In love with Great Gatsby? Do you chill at the beach every chance you get? There are good odds that we have a Prop Theme that will suit your tastes with everything from Beach Party USA to Camelot to Pirate Party. PLUS…we have a huge selection of Graduation Themed props that we add into the Themed Kit to really get down to business.

Customized Print Template

Every event ends up with some kind of “color” scheme. Weddings, proms, corporate events, even Christmas Parties have a color scheme. Usually, graduation parties are done in the color scheme of the school you graduated from. For me, it was Red & Black. I had red & black balloons, red icing on my cake, and red & black crepe paper ribbons. We will customize your Photo Print Template with your school colors (or party color scheme) AND any other details you want. We can do prints with caps and gowns, or something you were involved with in school like football, band, or a club! We’ll finish it up with a personalized message about your day.

Personalized Greeting Screen

Every good Photo Booth for Graduation will have a Greeting Screen. Ours is matched to your Prop Theme, Color Scheme, AND Persoalized Message. I just did a Graduation Ceremony for my local high school and I snuck a message in their for the students that they knew was from me. Seeing them smile when they read the end message was the best feeling ever. We’re able to do the same thing for you too!
