FAQ

photo booth with red backdropWhen trying to decide which photo booth to buy, there is one question that matters more than all the rest:

What makes your photo booth different from the others?

The simple truth is that most photo booth manufacturers offer the Canon T5. Most of them use Darkroom Booth 2.0 as their software. If you want to discover the best photo booth, you have to focus on what sets a booth apart.

 

THE ONLY ONE

The Inventive Photo Booth is the only ultra-portable photo booth for sale that is not a tent, shower curtain, or kiosk. Tents, shower curtains, and kiosks are obviously portable, but they don’t look like a photo booth. Other booths look like a photo booth, but they can’t fit in a small car. Our booth is the only one that looks like a photo booth and can still fit in a four-door. The only one.

Inventive Photo Booth is the only one to offer professional, hand-painted, portrait studio backdrops. The only one.

We have the only booth that you can roll into the venue from your car in one trip. Watch it here on our Home page. Other booths (mostly kiosks, aka half-booths) can roll in on their own wheels, but you would have to go back to your car to get the rest of your equipment (props, prop table, scrapbook bag, extra printer paper). Other booths could fit all that stuff onto a large dolly, but then you would have to go back to your car to hide the dolly. Our booth can do it in one trip. The only one.

THE BEST

Our photo booths take better photographs than any other booth. Our lighting setup was designed by a professional photographer. The best.

Best tech support. We rent the equipment we sell. When you have a problem, you will be talking to the owner of the company, not the new guy hired last month. 95% of the tech calls we get are back up and running in a number of seconds. We usually have the solution to the problem before the question is done being asked. The best.

ONE OF THE FEW

Our booths are one of the few to have a bench at all. No joke. There are nearly zero booths for sale that actually offer a bench. A lot of photo booth websites simply don’t show the inside of the booth, and unsuspecting people assume there is a bench inside the tent. Others will show photographs of chairs that are not actually included in the price. Our booth not only has a bench, but has a “Go-Go Gadget Bench” that doubles as a dolly. Go here. Brilliant.

We are one of the few to offer an external monitor. The external monitor runs a slideshow of all the photos that have been taken all night. Most our competition doesn’t offer it, which is why we do. Most your competition doesn’t offer it, which is why you need to.
