Hello Flashy FAQs

Hello flashy faqs are here to make things simple and straightforward forward just like our pricing! 

Flat Pricing and No Hidden Fees

All flat-priced packages include a one hour early arrival for setup, and post-event breakdown at no additional cost- so long as free or validated parking is provided. Parking fees paid out of pocket by Hello Flashy are compensated by client. Downtown Chicago venues are the one exception: include a flat +$50.00 rate for extra time needed for load in. Hello Flashy may request corporate clients in downtown locations to compensate for Uber/Lyft XL in the event that it makes more sense logistically for both parties given the load-in procedures of the venue.  

If idle time is needed on site this is also a flat rate of +$50.00 per hour.

What is a photo booth?

How many people can fit in a photo booth?

What is Idle Time?

Idle time is extra time requested by client not included in the duration of their photo booth rental. Hello Flashy charges a flat rate of $50.00 per hour for idle time.

Hello Flashy ensures that we will arrive one hour prior to your scheduled photo booth rental for complimentary setup. However, if a client needs us to set up earlier, or take a break in between photo booth sessions, we can accomodate with idle time.

For example: a wedding client hires Hello Flashy for a 4 hour custom wedding package from 7:00 PM-11:00 PM. Hello Flashy tells client they will arrive by 6pm to set up. Client informs Hello Flashy they need set up to be completed by 4PM to clear venue. Hello Flashy would accomodate client by arriving by 3Pm to set up. Client would be charged for 2 hours of idle time (3PM-5PM) that extended beyond the complimentary set up hour which would have started normally at 6PM.

Another example: a client hires Hello Flashy for a 4 hour rental. The client wants to do photos for 2 hours, take a break for one hour, and then resume with another 2 hours of photo booth use. This client would be charged $50.00 for the hour of inactivity that Hello Flashy is on site between sessions.
