• Flipbook Fun Turns The Page On The Traditional Photo Book

     
    FROM THE Summer 2016 ISSUE
     

Looking for a fun keepsake to feature at your next event? Look no further than Flipbook Fun, or as owner Jon Cermin likes to call it, “60 seconds of animated fun.” Guests are recorded dancing in front of a screen for seven seconds and then the video is converted into a 60-page flipbook. A team of three can crank out one flipbook per minute. All that’s needed to accommodate the photo area and printing station is a 10-foot-by-10-foot space, and access to electricity and lighting.

Cermin says that Flipbook Fun competes with high-end photo booths that send guests their photos online, but what sets them apart from competitors is the unique printed book, customizable to each event. “We like to have a permanent memory so we’ve stuck with the old-fashioned stuff; you can walk home with a flipbook in your hand,” says Cermin.

As the number of vaccinations across the country increases, the amount of live events and gatherings will hopefully rise with it. However, that doesn’t mean the way people gather will go back to normal instantly: there may be an adjustment period before bars, theaters, stadiums and churches are all full of people again.

 Spacing, social distancing, and creativity will be vital for planners and venues in the meantime, and tools like staging, seating, and more will be crucial for the execution of these.
