OK, HOW DO I BOOK ZIMZOOM?

It’s simple! Just get in touch with us by filling out our Inquiry Form or call  919-670-0250 so we can check the calendar and make sure that Zimzoom is available for your date. After we get a few details from you we’ll give you a quote that includes all the specifics of your event. Then all you need to do to confirm is sign our e-contract and pay the 25% retainer fee to secure your date. Full payment is due one month before your event. If you are renting the booth less than 30 days away from your event, then full payment is required at the time of reservation.

WHERE IS YOUR SERVICE AREA & DO YOU TRAVEL?

We have offices in the North Carolina Triangle / RTP Area (Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh) and Asheville, NC but good news, so our standard coverage area includes Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary, RTP, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Asheville and all points in between.  And we LOVE to travel.  So, if you’re planning a Marketing Tour, Destination Wedding or a Corporate Event anywhere in the U.S. then reach out and we can make it happen!

CAN THE PHOTO BOOTH BE SET UP ANYWHERE?

Pretty much.. The equipment is light, portable and easy to set up. It requires 8’x 8’ of floor space that’s out of the way of major walkways. There will be the photobooth kiosk and a 8’x 8’ backdrop set-up at the opposite end of the space. We will also need access to a power supply within 25 feet of the booth. Although it is preferable to set the booth up indoors, we can set it up in a covered outside area provided that the temperatures are reasonable on the day of your event.  However, it’s important to let your Account Manager know ASAP if you’d like us outdoors.

SO HOW DOES THE PRO BOOTH ACTUALLY WORK?

Easy as pie: Guests step-up to the touchscreen and press “start” then a countdown begins. At the end of the countdown, a flash goes off and the photo is taken. Depending on the layout, the Zimzoom Photobooth can snap 1-4 photos per session. After the session is complete, a high resolution glossy photo prints instantly for your guests to take with them. Guests can also choose sharing options (email, text, Facebook, twitter) or elect to print additional copies.

SO HOW DOES THE SOCIAL-LITE BOOTH ACTUALLY WORK?

Attendees step-up to the touchscreen, select whether they want a photo, GIF, Boomerang and press “start” then a countdown begins. They strike a pose while the LiteBooth captures images.  Then the guest can select filters and share via txt (sms) or email.  All media is uploaded to a branded micro-site web gallery which can also be streamed to any computer or display with a web browser.  The entire experience can be customized from start to finish – we work with you to create a memorable experience!

HOW MANY PEOPLE FIT IN THE PHOTO BOOTH AT ONCE?

Good news! Both the Pro Booth & LITE Booth are “Open Format” so the number of people that will fit in it can vary and depends on the size of the space provided for the booth. We’ve seen more than 15 people in the photo at once! (That’s way more than can fit in a traditional enclosed booth.) We’re also able to provide a seating and lower the booth height for more intimate portrait experience where between 1-3 people can be photographed at one time.

DO YOU INCLUDE PROPS?

Props are included in every Pro Booth Package **.  At Zimzoom we want your photos to be as beautiful & unique as your event so while we have lots of “stock” props we also want ensure that we get the right fit for your event. So, once you book your event with Zimzoom you can decide if you’d like to use some of the props from our stash: funky sunglasses, “mugshot” letter boards, chalk board speech bubbles, lips & moustaches on sticks, and more… OR we can work with you to find the perfect props that will POP for your event. Of course, you may also decide to not use props for a more clean, classic, minimalist look to your photos.
** Props can be added to the Social-LITE Package for an additional fee

CAN I CHOOSE MY BACKDROP?

Great question! Every Pro Booth rental comes with your choice of backdrop (note: this is an add-on for Social-Lite Rentals)
We love backdrops! In fact, we have a collection of over 90 of the finest backdrops available. We really believe that the backdrop literally sets the stage for the tone of your photos. That’s why we’ve curated a collection of the finest backdrops that will suit any occasion. If you don’t see the perfect backdrop for your event, we can work together to create a custom backdrop (or scene) that fits your needs. We can also super creative and design a scene based on an idea you had in your dream. Who knows? Tell us your wild ideas and I bet we can find a way to make your vision come to life.

WILL THERE BE AN ATTENDANT AT OUR EVENT?

Why yes! Each Pro Booth includes one of our friendly and knowledgeable ZimZoom Event Pros. They’ll set everything up, make sure it all runs smoothly, and interact seamlessly with you & your guests during your event. When your event is over they’ll pack it all up and leave the space exactly as they found it.

DO YOU PROVIDE DIGITAL COPIES OF THE IMAGES?

Sure do! Both Pro Booth & LiteBooth Packages come with digital images & GIFS.  Social-LITE images and GIFS are uploaded to a microsite instantly.  For Pro Booths, we post an online gallery of all your Zimzoom Photobooth images 48 hours after your event. You may access these photos from the “galleries” page on our website. We will post the individual images as well as animated GIFS if you chose that option. You & your guests will be able to download digital copies for free or even order additional prints for a small fee. We also offer an optional USB drive with all your images upon request.

ARE THE PRO BOOTH PRINTS REALLY UNLIMITED?

You betcha – as many as you can print in your rental time! ** (And the prints do come out quickly.) The prints will continue to flow for the duration of your event. The booth can print up to 800 photo strips per roll, then our friendly Zimzoom attendant will refill it and the fun can start all over again! The printer will automatically print out after each shot and allow guests to add additional prints for group shots. When you make your initial inquiry we will take the number of guests into account to make sure that everyone is satisfied and wait time is minimized. (* Now there are technical limitations, due to the time it takes to print and actually take the photos we’ve never exceeded a rate higher than 200 2×6 strips per hr. per photobooth.)

WHAT GRAPHICS OR DESIGNS CAN WE PUT ON THE PHOTO LAYOUT?

The sky’s the limit!  We have a graphic designer on-staff who will work to create the perfect design.  For private events (weddings, parties etc) you can choose from one of our predesigned templates. We’ll customise the layout with your name, event date and other info. For Corporate events, we can brand the photo layouts pretty much anyway you like. Contact us for more details. We’ll even create a custom print template that includes text like your name(s) and event date or your monogram, logo or other graphics. We’ll work together to create something special just for your event!

WHAT'S THE SOCIAL-LITE BOOTH PHOTO QUALITY LIKE?

Superb! We use Gorgeous Ring Lighting + Pro LED Panels carefully calibrated for awesome images.  The LITE Booth utilizes the latest iPad Pros which have excellent optics and combine with processing power to capture photo, GIFS and Video + Creative Filters.

WHAT'S THE PRO BOOTH PHOTO QUALITY LIKE?

It’s amazing!  We use carefully calibrated DSLR Cameras + Pro Studio Lighting to capture gorgeous images at every event.  Then the photos are printed on our Dye Sublimation printers which produce stunning PhotoLab quality prints in just seconds.  And after your event, all the images will be provided free in our online-gallery where you and your guests can download & share the memories again and again.
