If you are looking for photo booth vendors, don’t let price be the only determining factor. If you spot a deal that is too good to be true, it most likely will not be what you expect.
When looking for a photo booth vendor, there are many things to consider. Read on to find out why you should conduct thorough research before choosing a vendor!
1) Limited Print Count
Photo prints cost money, when a vendor decides to offer service at a price too good to be true, this is likely the first to be compromised. For example, they might offer 200 prints for 2 hours. However, it is not possible to predict the exact turnout of an event. If you happen to exceed the print count, it would incur more cost.
By choosing a vendor offering unlimited prints, you might end up saving money instead. Therefore, it is important to look for photo booth vendors who put customers satisfaction at high priority.
2) Possibly Unreliable Printers
One way that low-cost photo booth vendors use to cut cost might be investing in lower-end or consumer grade printers. In some cases, the prints are not as sharp, or worse, the per-print cost is higher. This might affect the overall quality of your prints.
Make sure you check their portfolio to look at past projects they have done. This is a good way to ensure that the vendor provides consistent quality.
3) Last Minute Cancellations
Over the years, we have received multiple requests from clients who were terminated by their low-cost photo booth vendor. Due to the last minute cancellation, our clients had to source for alternative vendors. Often, they end up having to pay more as these are considered urgent bookings.
You could save on this additional booking cost by doing extra research and engaging a reliable vendor.
4) Hidden Costs
Some vendors might not be upfront about their pricing. They might offer a base price, and as you add on more services, the price will increase. The total might end up being more expensive than mid-tier or higher end vendors. In other cases, some companies might also state prices before GST and service charge.
This is why it is extremely important to communicate with your photo booth vendor and ensure that there is transparency.
5) Your Satisfaction is Not Their Priority
Some of the cheapest photo booth vendors treat the services they offer as a side job. Therefore, it might be difficult to prioritise your overall satisfaction as compared to a company dedicated to offering professional photo booth services.
