Key factors to consider are the number of hours, camera quality, lighting, customization options like design, overall presentation, professionalism, and availability of add-ons.
Popular add-ons include prints, upgraded props, or an on-site attendant to engage with participants. Digital add-ons can include digital props or masks, marketing tools like lead capture, or a social media report on how many photos were shared.
Anyone can take a photo on their phone, so what you are really paying for is a setup that will provide a premium user experience. Budgeting a little more for your rental will often pay off with better service and features for a more fun and engaging experience.
Make sure to understand the exact service you are getting when renting a selfie station. Ask for examples of the photos that your specific rental unit will produce to understand photo quality. A video demo is another helpful way to ensure the experience fits your needs.
