Christmas Craziness Commences

The silly season is upon us, so it’s time to relax, pop the champagne, and celebrate what a huge year it’s been with your friends, family or colleagues.

This year has been exceptionally busy for the KeepSnaps team: with over 100 event days, more than 20,000 photos printed, thousands of new Instagram followers, and over 60 flights across Australia.

But, we’re not done quite yet.

We still have some beautiful weddings, Christmas parties, and New Years Eve celebrations to be part of before we can put a huge *TICK* next to 2016.

Are You Getting The Most Memories From Your Instagram Photo Booth?

You’ve probably thought long and hard about making your big event just perfect! One of your friends or colleagues suggested you hire an Instagram printer cos they’re “so much fun”!! So you’ve done a Google search, and ended up here reading this!

Well your friend would be correct. Instagram printers add that extra bit of fun and laughter to your big event, while giving you guests a take home memory that they can stick straight on the fridge or on their desk at work!  They are a modern day version of a photo booth, and best of all, no booth is required!

To make sure you can get the most memories out of your KeepSnaps Instagram photo booth, we’ve put together a little guide for you.

Here are our top 6 ways to ensure you get the most out of KeepSnaps.

  • Signage. A large sign, or small cards to pass around letting people know how to play is vital so guests can get involved.
  • Position: Think about positioning KeepSnaps somewhere central and visible or next to a ‘Insta-worthy’ backdrop.
  • Speech: Ask the MC or host to mention the hashtag during speeches as this will ensure everyone knows how to get involved.
  • Prize: Think about rewarding the best photo with a prize at the end of the event. Or with our system we can randomly pick a winner for spot prize throughout the event.
  • Hashtag: Choose a short, and easy to remember hashtag. But make it unique enough that random photos won’t print out!
  • At large events, ensure all your staff (or friends) get on board and start snapping as it only takes one to start the trend.

#Luma25

Happy 25th Birthday LUMA Research.

We’re thrilled the KeepSnaps Instagram printer could be thee to help you celebrate your 25th birthday in Melbourne in style.

Teaming up once again with our friends at Letter Lights to create a spectacular photo opportunity,  the night was a fun filled event at the breathtaking Alto rooftop in Melbourne CBD.

We printed plenty of photos of the guests, clients, and staff at the corporate birthday bash. They will surely adorn office walls and fridges for years to come, as a perfect momento of a fun night, but also of 25 years of hard work.

“Thanks so much! It was such a great night any everyone loved the photos = such a cool thing to do!” Lovely feedback from the organiser Bonnie.

#SNP2016

We were honoured to be part of the wedding of the season at Le Montage in Sydney last weekend for the beautiful Stephan and Nicole.
What a wonderful testimonial they left us…
“It’s been so amazing working with Keepsnaps from beginning to end – you really added a unique touch to our day! Every time we look through our guest book and hashtag our wedding comes to life again and nothing will ever be able to replace the candid moments you captured. Not only did your team worked tirelessly to make sure every one of our guests got to take a special memory home with them, you also captured some of our favourite photos of the night and we’re all so incredibly grateful for that – thank you!! All our love, Stephan & Nicole X
The photos honestly look incredible and I can’t stop looking at them!!”

Happily ever after to the lovely couple!

KeepSnaps at Tough Mudder

Probably the muddiest photo ever

2016-05-07-43922258162633

We had an incredible weekend getting down and dirty with the Toughest Mudders in Queensland. As part of outdoor wear brand Merrell’s activation, we had a #merrellmudder giant hashtag that participants loved using as a prop. Safe to say, it wasn’t so white and clean by the end of the weekend!

Over two days we printed close to 1000 photos. Encouraging participants to get a before and after photo, they were excited to come back after the race and collect their photos that we’d pinned up on the wall. With big groups, we automatically printed duplicate photos so they could share them amongst the group.

Looking forward to Sydney and Melbourne later in the year where we’ll hope to smash our photo printing record!

#BerwickShow2016

We returned to the Berwick Showgrounds for the second  year running to snap, tag and print all the fun being had by Casey residents.

#BurkeHallWelcomes2016

We said a big hello to all the new parents of the boys starting at Melbourne’s Xavier College Burke Hall campus over the weekend.

We did things a little differently, acting as the event photographer to capture all the guests enjoying the stunning evening under the fairy lights, and meeting and mingling.

We then pinned up all the photos on big pin board for the families to take home as a momento from the night, a lovely surprise for them all.

What a beautiful night it was in Melbourne, with the KeepSnaps Instagram printer.

HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF KEEPSNAPS AT YOUR EVENT

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.
