This event photo is of one of our Flipbook Mobile Studios.   We can fit in a smaller space.  But, it is more enjoyable to have room for the guests to perform their skits.  Other guests gather to watch the fun.  We are flexible and have even set up in a hallway.

Space

Ideally, we need a 15’ x 15’ area.  We can be flexible if necessary.  This allows room for the guests to perform and guests to join in the fun.

Custom Boas

By special request we can bring our custom boas.  They are more elegant and do not shed like feather boas.  There is a small surcharge.  They are available in a variety of colors.  Many venue managers prefer our organza boas over feather boas.  Some won’t even allow feather boas.

Backdrops

We recommend a plain backdrop.  Hollywood event planners normally use a plain backdrop with evenly spread logos.  They know people look best against a plain background.

High Color Saturation

Mobile Flipbook Studio areas should not be highly colorized.  For example:  A blue tent, with blue props and blue clothes can cause the entire photo to be tinted blue.

Other guests can watch the performance and offer their own “encouragement and direction”, between peals of laughter.

Video Replay and Approval

Once the Flipbook video is complete, the guests may view it and decide if they want to print that video or do another take.

Number of Books Printed

The number of books printed per video is based on the package you selected.  Everyone wants their own book to take home.

 

Flipbooks Are Precision Cut

We remove the Flipbooks from the printer and pass it through our cutter.

Custom Cover is Applied

We put the Flipbook cover on the book and bind it right there in front of you.

Entire Process

The entire process from start to finish takes about 3 minutes.

Flipbook  Management

When we are printing multiple copies of each book, there can be a time lag between video completion and when their individual book is ready.  Many guests want to stand and wait for their book because they are so anxious to receive it.  However, to allow the guests to enjoy the party, we have a book management process so they may go enjoy themselves and come back to pick up their book later in the event.    This also allows us to make sure each person gets the correct book.  Our books are so much fun and so popular if we don’t “control” distribution, other guests will take them home.

Looking At Flipbook

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flipbook Custom Covers Are Included In Most Packages

We create custom KC Flipbook covers themed to match the event. A simple cover design is best.  Normally, we get an idea of the theme.  We put together a few quick drafts of artwork to develop the idea with the client.  Once the client lets us know what they like,  we refine the Flipbook cover design.  We can also create a Flipbook cover from client submitted artwork.  There are some limitations due to size.  Once a final Flipbook cover design is created, we print a proof for approval.  We do up to 4 revisions at no additional charge.

IMPORTANT TERMS TO KEEP IN MIND:

VIDEOS vs. BOOKS:

The number of videos is the number of actual little movies filmed.  There can be more than one person in a video.  4 people are generally the most you would want in a single video.  The highest number of videos possible in one hour in one set up is about 50.  40 Videos per hour is more common.

The number of books is the number of books printed.  We can print more books in an hour than we can film videos.  Depending on the package you select the number of books printed will be range from 40 to 150 per hour.  This is an important element in your package selection.

 

Onsite Package Upgrade

The event supplies and staff sent to an event are determined by the package selected. We generally cannot upgrade the package when we are onsite due to limited staff.
