In mid-October Boothie moved in to VentureLab's incubator. VentureLab is Lund University's platform for students who are considering starting or want to start their own business. We have our own little fishbowl office where we keep our backgrounds and props. It's a really inspiring environment with all the other businesses (there are 20 total).
Check out VentureLab on facebook at www.facebook.com/venturelabilund! You can also follow VentureLab (and me!) on instagram!
Yesterday we were in the little city of Bromölla in Skåne. Boothie was at an event arranged by the cultural department at the municipality for youngsters and their lovely library. Boothie was a huge hit amongst the youth (and the staff) and we managed to get (more than 1!) pic of everyone that was there!
TedxLundUniversity is coming up soon and I am working with the team at Lund University. We had a photo shoot and got a lot of fun pictures. The funniest thing happens when you get infront of a camera and professional flash: You instantly think, and want to be, a model. This is what my business idea taps in to. It's a non-obvious and unique way to entertain. Be sure to check out the TedxLundUniversity website for the TED talks! I'm hoping to have Boothie at the actual event next year for all the attendees!
This weekend we participated in a Wedding Expo at Stiftsgården Åkersberg. This was our first wedding expo and it was a lot of fun to meet those who are working in the 'wedding industry' and to meet all of the future couples. Even though it was a long day, I got so much energy and inspiration from all of the great people that dropped by my booth. Couples, families, and visitors could get a picture taken. This photo shows how you can personalize your print out for whatever the occasion.
Instagram seems to be taking over the world and boothie is extremely excited that it is now available for android users, as it makes our announcement even more accessible, for all smartphone users. If you’re not on the insta bandwagon yet check it out, it’s just like twitter but for pictures! Some of my favourite people to follow on it are: hacth427, umetaturou, alice_gao, beside, ejan, solig, sandrabeijer, snoopybabe, and of course zooeydeschanel and if you want to follow me my name is rachlach2.
Tyra banks said it best today on twitter - every moment can be a photoshoot!
After we saw the instaprint video (see post below) we had the chance to work together with Niklas and Nicklas from Kontxtr to create a boothie version. What this means for you as a customer is your guests can now take photos with instagram, tag them with your event’s designated hash tag and then the photos will print out at boothie!
This is a service that we are hoping to offer along with the normal boothie set up but it can also take place it’s own. Just like boothie’s print outs you can still add your own template to the photo and you can even include information about when, where and by whom the photo was taken. Also like boothie, you will be provided with a digital photo album after so you can upload your pics to facebook or feature them on your website.
Instaboothie is like a throw back to the old wedding tradition of providing all tables with a disposable camera. It lets each guest have their own portable photobooth and gives the host the opportunity to see their event through their guest's eyes. It’s a reality nowadays that your guests are going to have their smartphone with them at your event (sorry to say) so why not embrace it!
Be sure to check out Kontxtr, which is another fun way that you can engage guests at your party through twitter! They’re so awesome and they’ve provided a 40% discount if you use the rebate code: Boothie.
We’re going to try out Instaboothie next week at The Academic Society of Lund’s Laser tag competition and dinner party, I’ll be sure to keep you updated. Standby for a video of it in action and don’t hesitate to contact me if you’re interested in having instaprint at your upcoming event!
Tomorrow Boothie will be at Brandon Till's (of Air Oh Mail) Debonair Affair! We will be set up to feature all of the Movember participant's Moustaches. Guests are encouraged to make a donation in the name of gentlemen's health here.
We're excited to meet all of the dapper gentlemen in their 'staches and have a hot mess of photos!
Check back for pics!
