common questions

 

WHAT EXACTLY IS A GIF?

A GIF is a simple digital animation made from a series of combined photos taken in quick succession.

 

HOW DO YOU OPERATE THE GIF BOOTH?

It's so easy to use, that even grandma can get her GIF on.  It has a simple prompt on the screen that will count down to capture the next GIF or photo when tapped.  It will then ask for a guest's cell phone number and be instantly delivered to them by text message to enjoy and share!

 

CAN I HAVE ACCESS TO ALL OF THE GIFS FROM MY EVENT?

You bet! Each event will have its own gallery, where all of the GIFs or still images captured will be stored. As they are delivered, your guests will be provided with the link to this gallery, and the gallery will stay live for at least one month after the event is over. The day after your event, we'll also share a zip file with you by email, where you can download everything captured by the GIF Booth so you can check out all of the fun you and your guests had!

 

CAN I CHOOSE STILL IMAGES INSTEAD OF GIFS?

Well, you could, but GIFs are so much more fun. The “hybrid” mode is available for those who want to give their guests the option of capturing a photo or a GIF.

 

WHAT SETUP IS REQUIRED ON OUR END?

If you’re adding on a backdrop, approximately 8 square feet of space is recommended. If you’re not including a backdrop, very little space is required, and we often recommend placing the booth just off the dance floor for easy access for your guests. Although it's not usually required, power access must be available within 10 feet of the unit just in case the battery pack is drained during long events. WiFi access is required in order to instantly share GIFs with the guests, so be sure to provide the network name and password with us prior to the event so it doesn't delay setup. If WiFi signal is poor, everything captured will be delivered after the GIF Booth returns home later that evening.

 

DO YOU CARRY INSURANCE?

Of course.  Both business and liability insurance is carried and a Certificate of Insurance can be provided, if required by your venue.

 

I ALREADY HAVE A PHOTO BOOTH AT MY EVENT. COULD I ALSO USE THE GIF BOOTH?

If space allows, of course you can get the best of both worlds! The GIF booth offers a different product than a more common photo booth that prints 3 or 4 still images on a photo strip. Why not give your guests 2 souvenirs to go home with from your event?
