Frequently Asked Questions
What's an Instagram Printer?
Think of a photobooth that prints pictures directly from Instagram. Your guests simply take a picture on their phone, post it to Instagam with your event hashtag and voila! Our Instagram printer will instantly print out beautiful high resolution pictures on the spot!
Where are you located?
We're located in Camperdown, Sydney which is 20 minutes from the Sydney CBD. We service all across the Sydney NSW region. We don't charge a travel fee for events within 30km of Sydney CBD. If your event is somewhere further, that's ok just send us an email with your event location and we can provide a custom travel quote for you.
How long should we hire the Instagram Printer for?
Our minimum hire charge is for 3 hours. We recommend a hire time of 5-6 hours from the start to the end of your event. This ensures all guests have an opportunity to get in on the fun and have their photos printed.
How much time do you need to setup and packdown?
We need 30 minutes to setup and packdown our equipment.
Do you charge for the time you need to setup and packdown?
No. Setup and packdown time is free of charge and not included in your overall hire.
Do you have insurance?
Yes absolutely. We are covered for public and products liability up to $20,000,000. Our policy number and certificate of currency are available upon request.
How big are your print-outs?
All print-outs are 4x6" so they're twice the size of the old school photo strips which are 2x6". Think of a modern Polaroid print-out that's beautifully vivid, high quality and will never fade! Perfect to stick in your guest book or better yet, on your fridge door. Oh and what's cool is that you can choose a simple white background or have a custom coloured background with fancy borders. It's up to your imagination!
What if our guests don't have Instagram?
That's ok! Our friendly event staff will be there from start to finish to help out and take photos for all your guests. If your guests prefer to take their own photos, they can simply download the Instagram app, it's very quick and easy. Rest assured everyone including the oldies will be having fun and getting their pictures taken even if they don't know how to #hashtag!
How much space does your Instagram Printer need?
The Darkroom Days Instagram printer is really compact, it has a footprint of 1m x 1m. However we generally recommend that you allow a 3m x 3m floor space for the instruction board and attendant. The ground should be flat and it needs to be within 10m of a power point connection. If the event is held outdoors we will require our printer to be covered and out of the natural elements like rain and direct sunlight.
Do you provide props?
Yes at no additional charge. The Darkroom Days props box is a collection of unique, funny and outrageous props that we've collected from our travels around the world. More than the average wig and moustache, your guests will have fun no matter what they choose to put on. Whether they want to be a sumo wrestler, Pablo Escobar or even an octopus - it's up to them!
Do I get a copy of the photos after my event?
Absolutely. Within 48 hours we will send you a digital photo pack of all the photos that were printed at your event, even if your guests have decided to turn their profile back on private! If you want to print additional copies of your photos we can do that too, just drop us an email and we can send these out to you at an additional cost per print.
