Interested in Booking the Bus?
Would you like Penny to come to your event? Just want to connect, talk photos & VWs? Whatever the case, we love connecting with new people, so give us a shout!
Will the Bus Work at My Venue? If there's a will, there's usually a way! For outdoor venues, Penny can always find a nice spot to nestle into, and for indoor venues, you'd be surprised at the creative ways she can squeeze into spaces and places. If your site has double doors, we can likely remove the central bar divider and shimmy the bus inside. Once in, if you can provide a 10'x20' area, we're ready to rock! We do need permission from your venue as well—which isn't usually a problem. In the meantime, we're working on a newfangled system to float Penny up to the 47th floor of the Hyatt, but it's still in the works. We just need more balloons.
Do You Print the Photo Strips at the Event? And Can I Get Extra Copies? Yes! Always! Not only does each patron get their own snazzy little photo strip immediately after they step out of the bus, but we also upload photos to Facebook as well as a public (or private) online gallery allowing you to easily access, share, and download the hi-res images as you wish. You can always request extra photo strip prints at the event or access the hi-res digital versions any time.
How Many People Can Fit Inside the Bus? If we told you 11, would you believe us? The most that can squeeze into a decent photo is approximately six people, which is roughly equivalent to 12 small children, or 32 tiny babies. On that note, if you would like to squeeze 32 babies into the bus at once, we'll do your event free of charge.
Penny Looks Like So Much Fun! What's Her Story? Penny is a spunky, vintage-modern 1979 Volkswagen Bus-turned-Mobile-Photo-Booth. She was found in a disheveled and decrepit state, and we rolled up our sleeves and restored her to get her back on the road for her photo-taking adventures. We sure are proud of our old girl, and she can't wait to share an adventure with you.
How Far Do You Travel? We'll hop in the bus and kazoom out to your event across Alabama, and even all the way to Nashville. Travel beyond 45 miles (from Birmingham) is subject to a small cost-of-kazooming increase—please inquire.
Can You Personalize the Photo Strips? It seems most answers in this FAQ start with YES, and this one's no different. We always include a cute little version of our logo with a link to access your digital photos on the bottom of the strip, and we're happy to customize the photo strips to include your logo or information as desired!
Can I Rent the Bus for a Video of Photo Shoot? Yes, you can! And Penny loves being in the spotlight. If you rent the bus as a photo booth for your event, we're happy to take a few minutes to accommodate you shooting with the bus to get some stellar photos and video (as long as you share them with us, please!). If you'd like to simply rent Penny outright for a shoot (not as a photo booth), please inquire about rates.
Can We Use Our Own Props? Yes! As long as they're not broadswords, skis, or a pole vaulting stick (basically anything that is oddly long, sharp, and could poke holes into the headliner inside the bus. You can always use our props, or get creative and bring whatever you'd like to theme your experience!
