What is a photo booth?

A photo booth is a modern vending machine that uses an automated camera and printer to instantly snap, print, and share photos. You only need to pull the curtain, sit down, and get ready to flash a big smile!

What are photo strips?

Photo strips are a classic print style of photo booths that displays consecutive pictures vertically. They are a great way of combining a number of shots into one picture!

When was the first automated photo booth released?

The first patent for a machine resembling an automated photo booth was filed in 1888, although the first working photo booth was shown off in 1889 at the World’s Fair in Paris, France. The more typical booth concept you see today — with seat and curtains — first appeared in 1925 on Broadway in New York City. For just a quarter, the booth captured and printed 8 photos in about a ten minute time frame (luckily, Apple Industries has been able to lower that lead time down to seconds). This first photo booth was a huge hit, getting used by over 280,000 people!

What is Smile 2.0 software?

Smile 2.0 is Apple Industries’ latest software upgrade. It allows customers to share pictures via Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail instantly from the booth! Smile 2.0 also includes a number of advanced technical features. For more information on this software click here.

Do Face Place Photo Booths allow for instant sharing to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and through email?

Yes! With our new Smile 2.0 software, photos can be uploaded to Facebook, Twitter, or to an e-mail directly from the photo booth INSTANTLY!

How long does it take for a photo to be shared?

Why are photo booths so popular at weddings and other events?

Photo booths are back on the rise! Having a photo booth at your wedding has become one of the hottest trends over the past few years, and for good reason! Photo booths allow you to step away with a few friends or loved ones behind the curtain to capture memories that will last forever. People love the opportunity to snap a bunch of silly or romantic photos and events like weddings and birthday parties provide the perfect audience! On top of that, our Wedding Booth is so popular because it has special custom settings available for the bride and groom including a mosaic photo, video recordings, and the ability to save all photos from the night onto one neat CD.
