How much does it cost to buy a photo booth?
If you are new to this industry and looking to buy a photo booth online, you might be wondering where to start.
Let’s take a look at the best options available on the market today.
We will especially look at the cost of it.
You can find photo booths at almost every event nowadays and since we started renting them back in 2012 we have had so many people tell us “I want to buy a photo booth”.
So that’s pretty much how we started our company – we realized there was a need for a manufacturer that had been in the business of making it and experienced some of the same struggles that new booth owners face.
The cost to buy it is around $8000 for a high-end booth that is made by a reputable company.
Yes, you can always find less expensive options but have you ever bought something cheap and it broke and later said to yourself, “I wish I got the higher quality one”?
For this reason, you want to invest in a high-quality one. The last thing you want is to go out to an event and the photo booth breaks down on you in the middle of it costing you time, money, and a happy customer.
We made this mistake the first time we ever built our own prototype. We used the cheapest printer that we could find at Walmart and as a result, we ran into many issues in the very early stages of our rental business.
We wasted a lot of time and lost opportunities because we didn’t have professional-grade equipment. Once we paid a premium price to upgrade our components, we realized the huge difference in quality. The professional printer worked 10x faster and even cut the photo strips for us! This is just an example of how paying a premium can really help you grow a successful business for the long term.
If we calculated the time and money that we wasted trying to come up with a cheaper photo booth the first time around we honestly would have been better off just investing in a high-quality one.
Buying a high-quality unit gives you peace of mind and confidence promoting your new business knowing that you already have the best.
Photo Booth International offers help and financing options that you can take advantage of if you don’t have the cash to purchase outright. So just because you don’t have the cash now, doesn’t mean you can’t buy it. We also believe that when you invest into a new business such as this one, you are even more motivated to put in the work to make sure it’s successful.
