A photo booth has been a fun entertainment option for teenagers and families alike for years. But with the transition to everyone having a mobile phone in their pocket you might think that a photo booth seems old fashioned. With new technologies and easy connections to the internet, photo booths now offer great interactive possibilities to entertain guests and drive traffic.

With technologies like Smile 2.0, consumers can now print and share photos directly from the booth to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more. Additionally, there are now units in a variety of sizes so finding the right fit for your business is easy. 

Photo booths serve as a great purchase decision for event planners, route operators, location owners from shopping malls to bars, restaurants and amusement parks. Our friends at Apple Industries have provided a list of the top benefits for installing a photo booth at your business.
