Welcome to the Odd Box FAQ page with answers to all of the commonly asked questions regarding your photo booth hire and everything in between.




How does the photo booth work?

Simply touch the screen to start, choose from b&w or colour, strike your pose and your prints are ready to collect in seconds!

4 photos are captured each time you use the photo booth.

Your Odd Box attendant is always on hand to assist guests with the photo booth.

How many people can we fit in the booth?

Odd Box selfie booths can fit as many people as you can frame in the photo if you decide to use your venue as the backdrop.

With our Gold/Silver/Tartan backdrops you can usually fit up to 10 guests or more using the backdrop at 2m wide and up to 5 guests or more when used at 1.2m wide.

Can we see ourselves as we pose?

The touch screen monitor lets guests see themselves and pose before the photo is taken.

What about the image quality?

Our beauty lighting will make you feel fabulous!

Our lighting has been set up to allow only the most flattering of light and supreme quality of images to emerge.

Guests then receive instant high quality touch dry prints in less than 10 seconds.

How much space should I consider for the photo booth area?

We require a solid, even, flat floor space of roughly 2m x 2m to allow guests to comfortably pose.

Our photo booths are perfect for small venues or tight spaces as you can choose to use your venue wall as the backdrop.

Can children use the booth?

Children are welcome to use the photo booth and we provide small wooden boxes in case the little ones need that extra boost in height.

Please note for events with children only, our Original and Whisky Barrel Booth are perfect for a kids photo booth party as they can be lowered to a height appropriate for small children.

Can we choose the backdrop?

Yes you can choose a backdrop for free. The Gold/Silver/Tartan backdrops are fantastic and can be used at a shorter length of 1.2m if required for small spaces, alternatively you can use your own venue as the backdrop for something truly unique.

If you would like to incorporate something different with your hire we would love to help make that possible.




Where do we collect our Prints?

Your prints will be ready to collect in less than 10 seconds directly from the photo booth.

Our booth attendants are always on hand to remind you if you forget your prints and you can always download or purchase extra prints after the event.

Do we receive the USB on the night

We include a unique timelapse video of all guests using the photo booth with your USB Drive and as such we require the following day to prepare this.
