Frequently Asked Questions

What do you get when you hire a Prop ‘A’ Print Photo Studio?
We provide a backdrop of your choice, a box of humorous props for your guests to use and some nifty photo taking equipment. We also provide a studio steward, there to make sure the booth is running properly and to provide help to your guests.
How long does it take for us to set up these amazing booths?
Typically under an hour.
How big is the photo studio?
Our photo studios fit comfortably in a 4m x 3m floor space and require a height of 2.5m. We need a little space around that too for our props and for your guests to be able to get in and out.
What do I need for a photo studio?
A covered area, a nearby 13amp plug socket and lots of guests to make the most of this amazing experience.
What’s the maximum number of people we can get in one photo?
People come in all shapes and sizes but it really depends on how close they want to get together. We have had 18 people in one photo before!
How are the photos’s taken?
That’s simple, you or your guests operate a foot switch. All that needs to be done then is to concentrate on looking your best for the photo 3, 2, 1………
What happens after that?
Our studio provides a preview of the final image for you and your photo friends.
What are the prints like?
We use professional sub dye lamination printers on all our studios. These printers provide dry, glossy photos that can be pocketed and then kept for years and these are printed in less than 10 seconds.
And the guestbook what’s that all about?
When your guests have their photos taken 2 copies are printed. One for them to keep and one for the guestbook. We encourage your guests to stick the second print in the book and leave you a message using the glue and pens provided.
My venue has asked me about Public Liability Insurance and PAT testing – what’s that?
We have public liability insurance to cover your guests whilst using our photo studio and all our equipment is PAT tested which means it’s in safe and in good working order.
So I want to book one of Prop ‘A’ Prints fabulous booths, what happens next?
We will check the date you want is free. We then need you to decide on the booth type and any extras you might want. We then take some details, prepare a quote and we will need a £150 deposit to secure the date and the balance is required a month before the event date. It’s also really important to check that the venue can take our set up size.
What’s ‘Idle Time’?
We turn up in good time to get your photo studio set up ready for your start time but if you need us set the photo studio up earlier than you want it to start, say the morning of your wedding we would charge you idle hours to cover our time on site.
What happens at the event when we are loving the photo booth so much we want to extend the length of the hire?
At our studio steward’s discretion we may allow our studio to run for additional hours, all charged at £100.
What happens after your event?
We provide you with a copy of all the images from your event, we keep the images for 90 days should you decide you want to order extra sets of prints.
Booking our iPod DJ Equipment, how does that work with the Photo Booth?
We set up the DJ equipment first, then we set up the photo booth and run that for the hire time. After the 3 hours of photo booth time we pack it away followed by the DJ equipment.
