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.

A long weekend of weddings

The best thing about having KeepSnaps at your wedding is scrolling through all the images on the hashtag the next day and all the memories flooding back!

The winter long weekend saw our last flurry of weddings before winter REALLY kicks in, with a beautiful rustic wedding in Melbourne and simply elegant wedding in Sydney.

It was great to see our winner from last years huge Instagram giveaway with Letter Lights, Madeline use her prize and we were so happy to see the guest get involved and make the most of KeepSnaps.

And thank you to our lovely couple in Sydney who had a wonderfully colourful Indian wedding at Oatlands House.

If you’re thinking of having KeepSnaps at your wedding, here are a few reasons the KeepSnaps Instagram printer is better than a photobooth:

1. No one has to leave the party to go and hide in a booth, they simply snap photos throughout the event, post them to Instagram and add the hashtag to print.

2. Instagram printers only need a very small area to set up in, so no need to relinquish precious floor space for a big booth set up.

3. The photos print out in just 15 seconds, meaning your guests don’t need to be lining up to collect their prints. They can also easily reprint photos from the computer screen so everyone gets a copy.

4. Anyone can see all the event photos during or after the event by searching for the event hashtag on Instagram, so anyone who missed out on attending can still catch all the action in real time!

5. We can design the photo template to perfectly match your wedding them or invites.

Still need convincing? Read our rave review below from a recent wedding in Sydney.

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

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!

Which is why we’ve just launched the hottest trend in events tech, the mobile phone charging station – KeepCharged.KeepCharged mobile phone charging stations

We have two options available for hire or purchase:

The stand: featuring 10 assorted phone charging plugs for all phone types, including two wireless chargers suitable for Samsung S5 and S6. And with a large customisable back panel to put your branding.

The desktop: featuring 8 assorted phone charging plugs for all phone types, and a small compact design to fit onto any desk or bench top.

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.
