With the massive growth being seen in the portable photo booth hire business for weddings, parties, corporate and other events it is extremely important that when looking to buy a photo booth to hire out you choose a system or package that will be attractive to your potential customers. The question how much does a photo booth cost to buy and how much should you spend is therefore an extremely important question for you to consider.
You should not base your decision purely on the bottom line cost but more on how you can sell the features and benefits of your system to those that will be hiring it from you.
To buy a photo booth system can cost anywhere between £6k-£12k, depending on your choice of photo booth supplier, frame style, equipment supplied and software. All these elements being extremely important in your choice of system.
For example many of the cheaper systems on the market will use a piece of software similar to Breeze, which is available off the internet for around £120.However this is a general photo processing software package and not specifically designed for the speed and functionality required in a more attractive bespoke Photo Booth system.
An example being most of the set-up needs to be done ahead of the event and very few changes i.e. switching between multiple images, larger single images and video, can be made to the settings during an event without, having to spend a long time re-configuring.oto processing software package and not specifically designed for the speed and functionality required in a more attractive bespoke Photo Booth system.
Whereas a bespoke Photo Booth Software package as part of your system would allow you to make similar changes within 20-30 seconds during an event – much more attractive to your customer.
Additionally the size, weight and ease of assembly of your photobooth frame is extremely important to how your business operates – ideally you want a bespoke system that is quick to assemble, can easily be carried (i.e. in and out of lifts, up-stairs etc.) as well as in the boot of your car. Ideally your frame should be made of lightweight aluminium sections providing both strength and ease portability and without any additional nuts or bolts etc., which would slow down assembly.
The outer skins should be lightweight and interchangeable with Velcro strip fixings to again enable quick and easy assembly and dismantling. Also such a system would give you more flexibility where different outer skins are required for different events or customer branding etc.
Finally you should consider all the options you will be providing your customers from green screens to enable your customers to be able to select their own backgrounds, the quality of the camera equipment, speed and quality of printer and optional accessories such as wind machines for added interest and fun for your customer.
