Frequently Asked Questions
Custom Built for a Custom Experience!
Party Cat boasts two photobooth machines, new to us in 2017 and pretty dang cool if we so say ourselves! They both have different qualities, perfect for different types of events and budgets.
This beauty is our newest edition and is super cute! It uses an iPad for image capture, which guests interact with directly. It uses built-in continuous lighting (no bright flashes!), takes up less space and sets up in 30 minutes!
This big baby has a touch screen computer that guests interact with directly, a professional camera and high quality lens, a social media sharing station and print capability all built right in. Plus we bring our studio quality lighting gear, handmade backdrop and props for flattering and fun photos all night!
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY “CUSTOMIZATION”?
I make each and every prop and backdrop for our events - by hand! All packages include up to 3 new props. Customized backdrops are included for the Tabby and Persian Packages, but don't worry! If you choose the Alley Cat, you still get to choose from our amazing array of pre-created backdrop options. I am always up for making new things, and love hearing your ideas! If what you are envisioning is outside of our normal budget, however, it may require extra funds on your part. This will all be discussed prior to any charge, no surprise fees!
HOW DO I RESERVE MY DATE?
The first step is to send us an email to inquire about your date! If it is available (yay!), I will send you a contract and invoice. A 50% deposit and signed contract is due in order to hold your date. The deposit is refundable up to 30 days prior to the event!
HOW MUCH SPACE IS NEEDED?
The Little Box is happiest in a 8x8 space, but can fit into smaller spaces as needed. The Big Box needs about a 10x10 space to not feel cramped. This space includes the machine, backdrop and a prop table.
CAN IT BE SET UP OUTSIDE?
Sure! We must be on level ground near an electrical outlet. Sidewalk, a deck, or a dance floor are preferred, but can set up on a flat patch of grass as well. If we are not in a covered area and it looks like rain or high winds we cannot set up.
HOW MUCH TIME IS NEEDED TO SET UP?
The Little Box takes as little as 30 minutes to set up, depending on backdrop choice. The Big Box take about an hour, also depending on the backdrop.
DO YOU NEED ELECTRICITY?
Yes! We need access to one grounded outlet within 10 feet. We can bring extension cords, but it’s best if the outlet is not too out of the way to avoid tripping hazards.
WILL YOU TRAVEL?
We will! Travel is included up to 30 miles outside of the area code 97217. Outside of that we charge $1.00 per mile round trip.
