BOOKINGS

 

 

WHAT IS THE ETCHED EXPERIENCE?

Our ambassadors have a way with welcoming you into the booth, and we’ll have you pick out a prop or go solo if you’d prefer. Cue a few of your best moves and photos are taken in a jiffy with a controller. While you’re in action, our printing assistant will be working discreetly on the side with your prints hot and ready in seconds. We go to great lengths to make the experience effortless and simple so you can rest easy knowing that there's one less thing to worry about. See it to believe it!

 

HOW DO I RESERVE ETCHED FOR MY EVENT?

Here’s a quick contact form you can fill out or you can also email us at hello@etched.sg. We usually respond within the day with all the info you need to make your decision.

 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I RESERVE A BOOKING WITH ETCHED?

The sooner the better so we can be sure that we don't come across a double-booking and also to have ample time to prepare for your event! But don't be shy to ask us even if your event date is a little near, sometimes we have last-minute availability!

 

IS THERE A DEPOSIT WHEN RENTING A BOOTH WITH ETCHED?

For us to confirm your booking, we will require a 50% deposit at the time of booking, and the remaining balance is to be paid on the date of event. Any cancellations should be made at least 1 week before the event, otherwise your deposit will be forfeited. 

 

OK, SO WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DOES ETCHED TAKE?

We prefer a direct bank transfer for seamless tracking, but we take cash and cheques too.

 

YOUR PRICES ARE BASED ON TWO TO FOUR HOUR PACKAGE RENTALS. WHAT IF I NEED MORE HOURS?

No issues here! Our prices include up to four hours of rental time, but we’re down to party for as long as you’d like. Let us know and we will be able to tailor a special package for you.

 

CAN I SPLIT MY PACKAGE INTO TWO SESSIONS?

For sure! You can choose to have a 1-hour break between 2 sessions. We will, however, have to charge a small fee for any delays above an hour.

 

CAN I CHOOSE TO EXTEND THE DURATION OF MY BOOKING ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT?

This is possible but only subjective to the availability of our attendants and once we’ve made sure that it does not clash with our next booking in the same day. Check with the team on site once you’ve made the decision to do so!

 

DOES SOMEONE STAY WITH THE BOOTH THROUGHOUT THE SESSION?

Like two peas in a pod, our lovely booth attendants add to the very soul of every fun photobooth experience with us. They’re great with helping your guests feel comfortable posing for camera, and they’ll also be with you the whole time to make sure any difficulties are attended to immediately.

 

DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS FOR NON-PROFIT EVENTS?

We’re all for supporting a good cause, so we take 20% off the rental rate for all non-profit events.

  

 

LOGISTICS

 

 

HOW MUCH SPACE IS NEEDED FOR THE BOOTH?

In general, our footprint is about 3m x 3m, ensuring that there’s room for your guests to move about. However, the setup can be scaled down smaller if needed. We’ve worked with smaller spaces, so let us know if space might be a constraint for the venue and we might call for a recce to improvise.

 

WHAT'S NEEDED TO RUN THE BOOTH?

All we need is a power socket nearby, and a long table for props and your prints.

 

IF MY EVENT IS OUTDOORS, DO I NEED TO PROVIDE SHELTER FOR THE BOOTH?

We strongly recommend for a sheltered space to hold the booth as it cannot function in the rain. The sun and wind conditions can also be tricky to deal with, so some coverage would be most ideal. We will also need flat, stable ground. 

 

 

PHOTOS / PROPS / BACKDROPS

 

 

HOW MANY PHOTOS ARE WE ALLOWED TO TAKE?

We meant it when we said unlimited prints. Your guests can come around the booth as many times as they want. That also means, you get a copy, she gets a copy, everyone gets a copy!

 

IS THERE SOMETHING I CAN KEEP MY PRINTS IN?

We’ve created some super awesome copper-foiled black envelopes that goes with each set of prints that we hand out. Please speak to us if you’re interested to have custom envelopes for your event!

 

WHERE CAN I FIND MY PHOTOS AFTER MY EVENT?

We will first process the images so they look their best, then send it to you via WeTransfer. Your guests should have already been informed with a link to our web gallery during the event so they know where to look for their photos, all they have to do is click on the album titled under your event. This takes us about 2-3 days, and you’ll be the first to know once the album goes live.

 

WHAT’S A DIGITAL WATERMARK/OVERLAY?

This comes in handy (also complimentary) for when you want to amplify the branding elements to the photobooth. We can include your logos, any event taglines, hashtags, anything.*

Here are some samples:

*We would advise against having too many “items” in the overlay as it might clutter up the photo. Clean and simple always looks the best!

 

HOW CAN I CUSTOMISE MY OWN BACKDROP?

If you already have a print design in mind, you can either provide us with the visual samples and we’ll send it in for production, or you can take this up with our designer and we’ll have something churned out specially for you.
