What is Instagram Instant Print?
Instagram Instant Print allows guests or visitors at your event to print photos from their Instagram account with a unique event hashtag.
How Does It Work?
- Guests upload a photo to their Instagram feed
- The photo will be displayed on our touchscreen
- Selected photo will be printed with your customised branding
Before the event, you will decide on a unique event hashtag, this will be used on your event day. Other than that, our designer will also customised a photo border design based on your event theme.
Why Hire Instagram Print For Your Event?
- Your guests become your brand advocate by uploading photos onto their account with your hashtag, exposing your brand to their followers.
- Guests are incentivised to use your event hashtag for a free photo print.
Do Advice The Guests To Upload on Their Accounts
There are a few reasons guests may resist uploading photos on their own accounts. Most often, it is because they are unfamiliar with Instagram. When this happens, we always encourage the guests to pick up their own phones and we run through the process with them.
This is important because when they upload their photos onto their own Instagram profiles, they are potentially exposing your event to tens or hundreds of audiences who follow them. And also increase the likihood of your hashtag trending on Instagram.
On the contrary, if we assign a dedicated smartphone photographer to capture images for the guests, the photos will all go into a single account, and it is likely that this account created for your event has little to no followers.
To make matters worse, a single account uploading so many photos within a short period of time, and with a specific hashtag, is viewed by Instagram as abusive behaviour. The hashtag may be blacklisted.
Do Consider Devising Your Unique Event Mechanics
Printing of Instagram photos is fun, but it will encourage even more guests to participate when you tie this activity with an attractive event mechanic. This can be a lucky draw to reward the most creative photo, or a discount voucher with each photo print.
Alternatively, a creative backdrop customised with your brand message will make a really good photo opportunity too.
Our Instagram Event Printing packages come with unlimited photo prints. Hence, you have no reason not to encourage more engagement!
Guests Need To Have Public Account
In order for our Instagram Instant Print system to download the image from the user accounts, their accounts should not be Private. Otherwise, we are not able to access their photos. Our staff will advise your guests during the event.
