Our new business cards are out and we’re adding a little fun along with them.
Like it or not, when it comes to face-to-face interaction with clients, your business cards (and the way you represent the company) can indicate how good your business is. We decided to have our business cards in the form of small mustaches with our logo and details on one side.
‘What about the other side?’ you ask. You can use it as a prop for when you’re in our booth or if you just wanna take a selfie with your friends and win a prize. ‘Win a prize? What do you mean?’
Well, we have an on-going contest called #happyboothfamous where you take a picture with our business cards, hashtag it “happyboothfamous” and post it on Facebook or Instagram. Email entries are also welcome. Our favorite snapsters will receive a surprise gift!
‘Where do I get one?’ Grab one at our office or visit us during our next event! Can't stop by our office? Just send us a quick email with mailing address and we will mail one to you.
We can’t wait to see your photos and (hopefully) you will win a prize.
# Five Reasons Why You Should Have a Photobooth at Your Next Event.
"Want one good reason why photobooths are awesome at events? We’ll give you five!
Parties and events can get a little dull at times if you just have the same old staple features. How does a photobooth change all that? Check out these five reasons-
Mingling with guests and networking for businesses gets a whole lot better and easier when you have an ice-breaker, in this case, a photobooth. Guests and friends can let go and have a fun time horsing around, posing for pictures with each other.
Photobooths aren’t restricted to a certain age group. Anyone can jump in for some fun! Whether it’s your 2 year old niece or your Grandmother, anyone can have a ball in the photobooth.
Social Media Sharing
In case you thought that you just get the regular prints at the photobooth, think again! New age photobooths come with a social media sharing option which lets you share your pics on any social network such as Facebook, Instagram, etc.
Customized Prints and Templates
The usual black and white template can get boring at times, so instead of going vintage you can also select your own designs for your prints and templates! These add so much colour and vibrancy to your photos and definitely make them even more special.
Photobooths are for everyone
Anyone and everyone can enjoy a photobooth; whether you’re from a small town or the big city, you’re guaranteed to enjoy yourself in the booth. But photobooths aren’t just for humans also. We once had a cute kitten called Meep Meep who posed for a few photos in the booth. She was so cute and all the customers who saw her with us that day were fawning over her and playing with her.
There you have it! Those are our 5 reasons to get a photobooth for your event. "
The Secret Santa event was really fun and heartwarming event since we were helping Santa bring some cheer to some sweet kids from an orphanage in the city.
The event was held to spread Christmas cheer and to give them a good time. Santa came in and made the kids laugh and dance with joy and gave them a few presents. There was dancing, music and cake as well.
The kids enjoyed themselves in the photobooth. They loved the props and kept coming back for more pictures. We were glad that we could share the Christmas spirit with these kids and we're glad that they had a great time with Santa and us.
Doing photo shoots with the same old boring backgrounds makes the job a lot less fun. No one wants to pose in front of the same white/black background sheet for every photo. The fun is lost when you have the same old backgrounds.
To make things more fun, we use customized backgrounds that add variety to any and every event. We have our ever popular gold background (to treasure those golden moments), a black board background, a car cut-out and so much more. We even had a Great Gatsby themed background done up for one event!
So if you plan having customized backgrounds, make sure that you specify that to the booth operators as soon as possible. It takes time to come up with perfect ideas so if you inform them at least two weeks beforehand, you’re sure to get only the best!
Customized backgrounds really come in handy for many events. Theme parties always have a certain idea or feature behind it so it helps if we highlight it and use it in the backgrounds to go along with the theme. Otherwise it would just be a big bore for guests.
So the next time you plan a theme party or are taking photos for one, try getting interesting backgrounds that will increase the mood of the party. Your guests are guaranteed to have a fun time posing for photos if interesting backgrounds are available.
We at HappyBooth love the Halloween holiday and to celebrate, we decided to host a party for some of our friends at our office in Egmore. We had the specially decorated the place with all sorts of bats, spiders, jack o' lanterns and other Halloween classics.
We had about 15 of our close friends come and party with us that night dressed in their favourite Halloween costumes. We played some fun games and had lots of crazy stuff to eat. We got in some special Halloween candy such as eye balls and bat-shaped jelly beans, etc., for feasting pleasure.
We opened the booth and took some fun pictures with our friends and ended the night with the photo session. Though this event was a pretty low-key affair, we had fun with our buddies and we're glad that we celebrated Halloween together.
Found backgrounds are really fun and can be a refreshing change from the usual black or white background sheet. They are anything found in your location that can be used as a background. These can be from the beach to a fancy decorated wall.
While using the traditional black and white background or digitally inserted backgrounds via green screen can be loads of fun, found backgrounds can also give the same effect, depending on certain characteristics in your location. When we did the Rutland Gate Yoga Studio’s 2nd Anniversary Celebrations, we used a very uniquely designed wall that they had in their studio as a background while at Suni’s Birthday Celebration, we used a brown wall that had a retro classic look inside her home. For Anisha and Suchant’s mehendi ceremony, we used the greenery in their location.
These backgrounds added so much vibrancy and a personal touch to the photos and went very well with the themes. Likewise, there can be many of these found backgrounds in your location. So if there is one, don’t be afraid to use it and see how it adds to the quality of the photo session.
The idea of posing with a green screen as a background may not seem that appealing. But once you see what backgrounds can be added to your photo to make it memorable, you will be awestruck.
One good thing about digitally inserted backgrounds is that when choosing a background for your photo, you get a wide range to choose from. With our green screen option, people can take photos with their favourite actor/actress, or at one of the Wonders of the World, and so much more. For corporate parties, we can create special backgrounds for them featuring their company’s logos.
It’s things like these that can really turn up the energy at your event and make the night memorable for everyone present. So if you want a green screen at your next party, go for it! Let your guests get starstruck, lost in wonderment and of course, have a ball!!
Happybooth was the centre of attention at a party at the Intercontinental Chennai. We set up shop at the entrance of the hotel so that when the guests passed by, they could step in for some photos. The guests were really excited to try the booth and were even more excited when they got the photos printed instantly. Soon enough, word spread and many people tried it as much as possible and were surprised to find the photos online the next day. Happybooth really stole the show at the Intercontinental and we were glad to have given the guests a great time that night.
Successful businesses rely on promotion to get customers. But being too “business-y” about it doesn’t really help. So how do we showcase the fun side of the company? One answer would be, “Use a photobooth.”
For businesses, we offer frames, prints and strips with their company logos on them. As for the icing on that cake, we have a social media share option where photos can be shared via Facebook, Instagram and even Email. Our green screen feature can also come in handy since we can digitally insert specially designed backgrounds with your company’s logo on them.
All of the above features can help with promotion for your business and it also gives you a chance to show the fun side of your company to everyone. So next time you plan on promoting your business, keep a photobooth option in mind. It just might help in the future.
Suni’s Birthday party was a really fun evening, Priya. Priya had already tried HappyBooth at her daughter’s wedding and thought that it would be fun to surprise her best friend with a special birthday photo booth session as a birthday gift. We set up the booth in Suni’s house. At first, the guests were a little shy and hesitant to pose with props. But after fifteen minutes, everyone joined in and struck lots of poses with many props. It was like a ‘Ladies Night’ kind of affair but later, a few couples came by and struck some fun and romantic poses. Some of the guys were busy watching an IPL match so only few entered the booth. But those that did had a wonderful time so everyone was happy! Suni definitely had a good time and so did Priya and the guests. We were happy to be a part of the celebration and were glad that we were able to make Suni’s Birthday Party extra special.
