“selfie station” is a tiny unit (Only requires about ~2×2 space to set up) but packed with many options.
“photo strips,” a.k.a “single photo” – This option allows guests to take photos very similar to “photo booth” and sets those photos into a “photo strip” similar to photo booth prints.
“GIF” – This option allows guests to take a series of 3, 4, or 5 photos and create a GIF (animation) using those photos.
“Boomerang” – This option takes 10 to 15 photos, shot like a short video, and then plays those photos like a video – in a loop / backward and forwards.
“green screen” – Very similar to an actual green screen activation, it takes photos of guests before a green screen and then replaces it with different background images. Please note that you will need more space with this option because of the 8×8 green screen backdrop and extra lighting required.
Digital Props – Any of the options mentioned above can have digital props. Guests select digital props, which are automatically placed on their faces/heads / etc. No need for actual braces.
Once the pictures are taken, guests can email or text their photos/videos / GIFs immediately. Custom-designed microsite links are emailed/texted to them. They can also post these photos to any social media site.
Can you print from these selfie stations?
Yes. Even though these units are designed as “digital stations,” we can print from them if you like to add that option. Please note that if you add printing, it will require additional space to set up and slow down the process.
What is the best use of a selfie station?
Good question. Selfie stations are a LOT of fun. It’s an excellent option for your cocktail hour / happy hour when guests are waiting to enter the reception area. Its small footprint allows it to be set up anywhere; all we need is a wall outlet. It can also be moved inside the reception area once guests leave the cocktail area. A lot of our guests add a selfie station to photo booth packages.
What is the main difference between a selfie station and a photo booth?
The selfie station is set up (in most cases) without a backdrop, unlike a photo booth. Selfie stations do not have a DSLR camera or external flash like a photo booth. Finally, these units are designed as “digital sharing stations,” unlike a photo booth which always comes with instant printing.
