Our Mobile Flipbook Studio set up and important information.
We set up our Flipbook Mobile Studio at your event.
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.
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.
It is very important to have sufficient power available.
Tables and Drapes
The planner or host normally provides the tables and drapes. We can bring them, but there is an additional fee.
We bring an assortment of signs. We have standard favorites and can easily create custom signs to tie into the event theme.
We bring props. We have a large inventory of favorites! Additional charges may apply for special themed prop requests.
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.
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.

The KC Flipbook Entertainment Director Prepares the Guests to Film Their Video

Filming the Flipbook Video
The video lasts 7 seconds.
Guests Can Watch Themselves
Guests can watch themselves on the monitor during filming.
Entertainment Director Provides Cues
Our KC Flipbook entertainment director assists the guests to get the best result.
Other Guests Can Watch the Flipbook Performance
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.
After the guests have approved the video we send it to our printer.
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.
The Guests See Their Interactive Flipbook Keepsake for the First Time
This is our favorite moment!
The entire process from start to finish takes about 3 minutes.
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.
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.
