KeepCharged with mobile phone charging stations

When planning an event, you’ve probably thought to yourself, what else can we do to impress our guests and keep them happy?

KeepCharged mobile phone charging stations

In a recent survey, customers rated free phone charging as more convenient than free wifi.

‘Cos if your phone is dead, you can’t even take advantage of the free wifi. And you definitely can’t take selfies and print them out with KeepSnaps!

Phone charging is also the most effortless and cost effective way to improve your customer service, and keep your guests in your venue longer!

If you’re thinking of hiring KeepSnaps for your big event or wedding, we want to make sure you have the absolute best experience, which means lots of photos and everyone getting involved!

So after working at 100 + events we’ve put together some key learnings to ensure you get the most of your KeepSnaps Instagram printer at your event in Sydney, Melbourne or across Australia.

Here are 6 things to consider when hiring KeepSnaps Instagram printer:

keepsnaps signage

Competition signage

  • A large sign with your hashtag placed in a central spot lets everyone know how to get involved. We have a basic one we bring to every event, however we can always custom design your own for an extra cost
  • Why not hand out small cards with the hashtag, or put placecards on tables, so people can play along while seated at the table. Or even better, hire the I Spy cards as mentioned here.
Birthday scavenger hunt game

Birthday scavenger hunt

  • Location, Location, Location. Think about setting KeepSnaps up somewhere central or with a pretty backdrop, or media wall to encourage photos to be taken there or upon arrival
  • Ask the host or MC to mention the hashtag during speeches.
  • Encourage people to post by offering a prize for the best photo, judged the next day, or at the conclusion of the event (and add this to your signage)
  • Always choose a short and easy to remember (yet unique) hashtag so people don’t use the incorrect hashtag.
Summer backdrop and props KeepSnaps

If you follow these simple tips, you will be sure to end the night with hundreds of awesome photos on your hashtag, and memories that will last forever!

Turn Your Selfies Into a Free Mother’s Day Gift

Put a smile on your Mum’s face this Mother’s Day with a personalised photo card, delivered to her door, completely free.
Simply upload a selfie of you and your Mum to Instagram, add the hashtag #KeepSnapsLovesMums, and then visit and fill in your address to receive a personalised photo card, with a handwritten message inside, delivered to your Mum’s door in time for Mother’s Day. Completely free!
The best selfie will also win a beautiful flower bouquet delivered straight to Mum’s door on Mother’s Day worth $100.
In celebration of KeepSnaps founder Kathryn Thompson bringing her mother into the business, she wanted to reward all the hardworking mothers out there with a stunning gift this Mother’s Day.
“My Mum has been a great support to me, as I’m sure everyone’s Mum is, so I thought why not show everyone just how much they mean, by encouraging people to post their photos to Instagram in return for the easiest and best Mother’s Day gift money can’t buy.”
The beautiful prints will be slotted into a card with a magnet on the back, so they can be stuck on the fridge and treasured for years to come.
KeepSnaps is an Instagram printed for big events such as weddings, launches and birthday parties. Photos tagged with the event hashtag are are printed in a matter of seconds, onto branded paper as gifts for the event attendees, while the organiser gets huge social media exposure as the hashtag goes viral.
The KeepSnaps printer has been called the future of event photography as it turns every guest into a potential shutterbug, and the event photographer is no longer the primary source for pictures from the event.

It is also a fresh approach to the tired photobooth concept, as the photos are captured throughout the event, rather than tucked away in a booth, and then posted across various social channels in real time.

KeepSnaps founder Kathryn Thompson was inspired to bring the technology to the Australian market after watching it take over the New York event scene.

“KeepSnaps not only engages guests at events, it also brings unprecedented social media coverage for the event organizer as people are inspired to take more photos, meaning the unique event hashtag goes viral.”


#WEDDING: Top 5 Modern Wedding Trends

As the modern world gets more and more reliant on technology to stay organised, so too does the modern day wedding. KeepSnaps founder Kathryn Thompson predicts the top 5 digital trends for the upcoming wedding season.

  1. Inspiration: Brides are stepping away from bride magazines, and instead turning to social networking sites such as Instagram and Pinterest for ideas on everything from styling to invitations, dresses to photography.
  2. Planning: Wedding planning apps such as Wedding Party App will become as important as an organised maid-of-honour, allowing couples to keep guests updated about the schedule, news, and upcoming events, as well as keep track of RSVPs.
  3. Photography: Couples will continue to encourage their guests to add a unique hashtag on all their wedding photos on Instagram and Twitter, and we’ll see an increase in the use of Instagram printers, such as KeepSnaps, to print out these photos live at the wedding. A recent study found guests post an average 22 photos to Instagram, and 7 out of 10 people will send out a sneaky tweet.
  4. Styling: The official colour of the year for 2015 as chosen by Pantone is ‘Marsala’. Pantone describe the colour like so:The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement colour when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colours”.
  1. Gifts: We’ll see an increase in the use of online gift registries such as TravelRegistery to pay for things such as romantic dinners, adventure activities or tours on honeymoons, instead of the traditional home wares. The added benefit of this is that the newlyweds can easily share photos of their gift being put to good use, rather than sitting in the cupboard collecting dust with the other casserole dishes.
