Q&A Photo Booth

 

What do I need to know before inquiring about a photo booth for my event?

1) How many guests we are expecting.
2) Do we have an air-conditioned 8′ x 7′ space for the booth to set up at the event?
3) The budget for the event.

 

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a photo booth provider in your area?

1) Compare the available options.
2) Check the reliability and references.

 

How did we start this type of work?

We have been face- and body-painting for 15 years and have noticed the growing demand for photo booths at events. So, the next step was to add a photo booth service.

 

Do you require a deposit or contract?

YES to both. You will need to send a $100 deposit to Bling It On Parties to ensure that you get the date and time you require.  Your event is NOT booked until you send a deposit to hold your date and time. An invoice will be emailed to you with directions on where to send your deposit and payments. If not paid in full by the date of your event, the amount will be due before the artist leaves your event. We accept cash, company check (no personal checks) and credit cards.  If using a credit card a 3.5% charge will be added to your balance due.  Credit card payments must be processed prior to your event date, as no one will be in the office to run it during weekend hours.

Is there a cancellation policy for a photo booth?
We have a seven-day cancellation policy. Your deposit will reserve the date and time you require. We cannot book another event during that time. If you cancel within seven days of the event, the deposit will be non-refundable. We can reschedule your event one time, if another date and time is available. You will be required to pay your balance in full if you cancel on the day of the event.

 

Q&A Face, Belly and Body Painting

 

What areas of Georgia do you cover?

We cover all areas that are within one hour or a 50-mile radius of the 30504 zip code. If you require us to travel farther than 1 hour or 50 miles, a $15 fuel charge will be added.

 

What kind of face and body paint are you using?

FACE PAINTS  – All the paints are not actually paints. We use are high-quality cosmetics.  They are FDA-compliant (USA), approved for cosmetic use and water-based. To achieve the best results, we use many different brands: Wolfe, Mehron, FAB, TAG, Cameleon, Kryolan, and  Global.  All glitters used are cosmetic grade and made specifically for the body and around the eyes.  All of these products wash off with soap and water.

BODY PAINTS  – All above-mentioned products are used. We also offer a HYBRID airbrush paints. Hybrid means that the paint is alcohol-based and water-resistant. Instead, you will need soap and water to remove it.  This is optimal when the painting needs to last longer (such as for a movie set, cosplay, etc).  This option also costs more as the hybrid paint costs more.  Products used are ProAiir and FAB.

 

How many faces can you paint in one hour?

This answer varies. Typically, we can paint between 10 and 12 children in an hour. If the designs are small and do not require much detail, more faces can be painted. The more intricate the design, the more time is needed. We suggest at least a two-hour party for 20 guests.

 

Do I need to supply anything for face painting?

YES. In some cases the artist may require a table and two chairs if the event is longer than two  hours. The artist will also need a shaded or air-conditioned location to paint. Why? There are two reasons. 1) It is hard to painting children when they are sweating. 2) The paints need to stay cool or they will melt and be difficult to work with.

How do you clean your face-painting brushes and sponges between kids?

We use Brush Bath in the water at every event. Brush Bath is a sanitizer, brush cleaner and makeup remover all in one. It is 100% organic, safe for the face and body, and keeps our  brushes and sponges sanitary and clean. We also cleanse and sanitize all brushes at the end of each day for extra precaution.

How far in advance do I need to book?

It is best to book as soon as you have determined your date and time. The longer that you wait, the higher the chance will be that the date and time may not be available.

 

Do you require a deposit or contract?

YES to both. You will need to send a $25 deposit to Bling It On Parties to reserve the date and time you require.  Your event is NOT booked until you send a deposit to hold your date and time. An invoice will be emailed to you with directions on where to send your deposit and payments. If not paid in full by the date of your event then the amount will be due before the artist leaves your event. We accept cash, company check (no personal checks) and credit cards.  If using a credit card a 3.5% charge will be added to your balance due.  Credit card payments must be processed prior to your event date, as no one will be in the office to run it during weekend hours.

 

Is there a cancellation policy?
We have a seven-day cancellation policy. Your deposit will reserve the date and time you require. We cannot book another event during that time. If you cancel within seven days of the event, the deposit will be non-refundable. We can reschedule your event one time, if another date and time is available. If you cancel your event the day of the event, you will be required to pay your balance in full.
