Q. What kind of printer do you use?
A. We use high quality Dye Sublimation printers. Dye Sublimation printing does not have printing dots like that of inkjet printing; so it provides a much higher photo image quality. In addition, each print has an over-coating protective layer that is water and fingerprint resistant and can make the photo last up to 50 years under normal environments.
Q. Can I provide my own backdrop for the photo booth?
A. Absolutely. If you have an event designer that will be providing pipe & drape at your event, we may be able to use that for your backdrop. We also welcome DIY backdrops in fabric or other materials. Please contact us to discuss!
Q. Will I get the digital files?
A. We have decided to opt out of USB drives to help minimize the use of plastic. With technology we are able to upload all your prints and individual images to our online gallery – all your photos are at full resolution and can be downloaded individually or all at once =)
