Your event might only last a few hours, but your guests’ funny faces and embarrassingly bad dance moves can live forever with the help of a photo or video booth! There’s nary an event I plan that doesn’t include one of these options. From corporate events and holiday parties to weddings and Bar Mitzvahs, photo booths have become their own form of event entertainment that people come to expect these days. Whether you offer an enclosed photo booth, open photography with a backdrop, or a Gifyyy device that lets groups of guests (up to 20 people at a time!) create animated GIFs they can share on social media, props are the key to making the memories even more amusing! That’s where DIY printable props come in super handy!
For certain events, dollar store props are the way to go. The stores offer a good choice of party hats, glasses, flower leis and Mardi Gras beads. But these items can be pricey if you have to buy a bunch of them. More importantly, drunken revelers tend to put them on for the picture and NEVER TAKE THEM OFF! Pretty soon everyone on the dance floor is wearing the props and there are none left at the photo booth! But there is a solution… DIY printable props!
Shutterfly offers tons of options for every occasion—seasonal props, glasses, mustaches, and signs. Since it’s wedding season, we thought we’d feature some of their super fun Wedding Booth Printables that offer wearables and signage you can customize. Simply print them out on card stock, cut on the dotted line, and attach to sticks or string!
Attach ribbon or elastic for things like “glasses” and “bow ties.”
Use doweling on signs so that guests can easily hold them up.
With so many items to choose from, each guest photo op can look unique. Plus, DIY printable props work great for both photo and video booth set ups! Best of all, DIY printable props are inexpensive enough to make a whole bunch of them so that guests can put them on at the photo booth and continue wearing them while the event’s underway.
