Our books

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Wednesday 28 February 2018 12:25 pm

There are quite a few reasons why Rentabooth have always made our own guestbooks and when we started, over ten years ago.

We wanted an album that looked really good. Something very special that our clients could look back on for years to come.

We looked at many different shop bought books and one of the main problems was the size of them and also the quality. A4 is simply too small. Two 6×4 prints actually overlap which is not a good look and we also needed lots of space for your guests to write their messages.

We also wanted to use black pages which we also make ourselves using quite a thick card. Using black pages means that we also use gold or silver pens which look stunning.

Another criterion was that we had to find something other than a Pritt stick or tape to fix the photos to the pages and it took a while to find a special gluing machine to give our books the perfect finish.

We have no idea at the start of an event just how many pages a book will be by the end of the evening so we came up with a system where we bind the pages into the book at the end of the evening. On a quiet photo booth a guestbook might be 12 pages. A busy one it could be 50.

The great thing about the system that we use is that our books are always full.

We have spent hundreds of hours and so much testing perfecting the way we work and it’s just a few more reasons why we are better than the others.

Choosing your photo booth company for your event – Part 1

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Tuesday 6 February 2018 11:12 am

We are only occasionally asked if we carry spare equipment for our photo booths and it does surprise me. All computers, cameras and printers breakdown sometimes and in over 2500 events and over ten years we have been fortunate to have only had a couple of major problems with equipment. The type of printers we use are very fast and very high quality but they are quite prone to condensation which is worse in the UK than many other countries with a warmer climate.

Taking a printer from a cold car into a warm venue can mean a printer won’t work initially while it warms up. The same applies to camera lenses and sensors.

One of the reasons we always arrive an hour before we are due to start is to iron out any possible issues but the main reason we have few problems is that we carry spare equipment for everything that runs a photo booth. A spare camera, printer, computer, batteries and cables. On the rare occasion that we do have a problem, swapping a camera or computer out takes less than five minutes allowing us to be up and running again very quickly.

Surely checking that the photo company you are intending to use for your once in a lifetime wedding should be one of the first things you ask? The majority of our competitors don’t carry spare equipment….
