Increase your brand awareness with logos and messaging  Starting with the print layout as a mobile ad for your company can be a great tool for messaging. Think about it, the photos from your event will be displayed on desks and refrigerator doors with multiple daily views, so these prints are a great way to keep your branding and messaging in view long after the event is over. The amount of space people have for these memories is limited, so creating the best quality photos is key to win the best spot.

Maximize branding: Create a unique experience

Traditional photo booths are great but imagine the impact your booth will have if you get creative with a more dynamic service. Tell your company’s story with a flipbook, take a 360 video at your product launch with our SlowMotion360. Find the services that fits your event and brand, and remind clients about your brand by choosing your pictures design layout, backdrops and colors to compliment your brand and the event. Custom backdrops and sets can also act as prime ad space for sponsors or other stakeholders who would benefit from having their logos displayed at your event.
