Blubox has been our photobooth concept since way back in the day. It’s the photobooth without the booth. We never have really had time to give it the attention or promotion it needed though, so it sort of sat on the back burner. One other damper on blubox’s world was that in the world of photobooths for wedding – the instant gratification of a printed photo was not something we could accommodate. The thought of hauling in a printer and all the stress that would bring – all while we are trying to still shoot the events of a wedding sounded really annoying. So, while blubox still had it’s perks – that one thing was missing.
Enter Roger Doolin and his amazing smartness. All it took was this comment from yours truly… “I don’t think people even print their images they take anymore. It goes right to Facebook and lives there. If you want to see what people did over the weekend, you go to the photos they were tagged in.” LIGHTBULB MOMENT!!! “Hello Roger, it’s me, blubox! Make a Facebook page for me and upload the images from blubox straight to it – giving guests the ability to tag themselves and others, and to download to their computer.” We don’t always listen to the voices in our heads, but this time it was a no brainer.
SO – with blubox (did you notice we dropped the e? Sexy isn’t it?), not only will you be able to have a high res. digital image (instead of a boring, low quality print out that goes on your fridge or maybe gets sloppily scanned and uploaded) you will also be able to tag your photos and your friends as well, and see all the blubox photos from the event. How fun is that? The ability to be able to see the hilarious photos that other people created and have them to keep is priceless! Suddenly, blubox just became the cool kid on the photobooth block!
To add to the coolness, blubox is MUCH less expensive that most photobooths AND will not incur any cost for your guests. They will be given a card with the link to their photos as well as the QR code to instantly get to the site. In addition, you will receive all the images on your high resolution disc. All photos will be on the site within 24 hours – or for a small upgrade you can get them posted instantly. (wireless restrictions may apply)
So this is basically blubox’s rebirth. Let’s celebrate it’s “ReBirthday” with a coooool contest! Get ready – this is NOT an opportunity you’ll want to miss!
