When it comes to brand awareness, the way to gain attention is to keep people entertained. This is exactly what we did when we were invited recently to take part in a photoactivation for Metro by T-Mobile. This event was a part of the recent UFC fight night and took place at the Target Center. With only a few days to prepare, we created the coolest boomerang booth for Metro by T-Mobile Ever!
The First Round
This is a client that we loved working with and hope to work with again in the future. Metro by T-Mobile contacted us stating that they had a custom photo op set up for Fight Night at the Target Center. They were looking for a way to make it more fun and needed us to capture people posing with an actual UFC championship belt!
We were thrilled by the idea. Our creative energy consumed us and we thought it was so cool to have an actual UFC belt as a prop. Therefore, we happily offered our Boomerang kiosk as well as some branding added in for added brand awareness and pizzazz.
Round Two Kicks In
Before the event opened, we showed up with our equipment and set everything in place. Once people began to arrive, the real pre-UFC Fight Night party started. Once people discovered that they could take photos, GIFs, and Boomerangs with a real UFC Championship belt, they were excited. They also enjoyed having the option to text the images and GIFs to themselves and share them instantly on social media.
With a consistent line at all times, the turnout was amazing. Even the background with T-Mobile and Metro logos made the “fight photos” more impressive. It made them feel like true champions for a moment and they will feel like champions every time they see their boomerangs.
During the time we were there, more than 500 photos and boomerangs were captured. People were laughing, sharing, and coming back for a second photo op.
Round Three: The End Result
When people stepped out of the photo booth, they had created their own memories of the event. They were walking out of the photo area with a smile. Their photos and GIFs were shared so that family and friends would be envious of all the fun they missed out on. In the future, at another UFC Fight Night, those friends may decide to take part in it, as well as other events hosted by Metro and T-Mobile.

Events should be fun and exciting for all who attend, and often, the best ideas come in surprising ways. Recently, we did an event for Enseo, that would end up with a last minute change in plans. They were testing our skills and together we pulled it off without a hitch. We also discovered that a Game of Thrones photo booth in Minneapolis means fun for all who attend, whether it is a corporate event or not.
A Surprising Twist that Put Us to the Test
As a photoactivation company, we are always looking for fun ways to help our clients make their events fun while achieving their marketing agenda. When we first spoke to Enseo, they booked an open style booth for a party they had planned. They wanted to take advantage of the fact that people love to have photos taken if there is a cool photo op available. They wanted their logo put on it so that it could be shared on social media to raise brand awareness. We were happy to help.
The party would be held in Minneapolis during the HITEC conference. This is an easy one for us. An open style photo booth is typically a landscape photo of some type with the company logo on them in some way.
What a surprise when they called just a week and a half before the event to tell us some very exciting news. They wanted to add a fun prop – a real Game of Thrones throne!
The Challenges We Faced Head On
This Game of Thrones throne was amazing to see, but it did present some challenges for us. Instead of a landscape style booth, the throne looked better in the portrait orientation. Therefore, on short notice, we had to actually modify one of our booths to accommodate the prop our client chose for their corporate photo booth MN.
We put our heads together and decided that a single shot portrait was the way to go for this photo booth setup. However, the client also wanted to jazz it up a little. They wanted to add GIFs so that people could share short looping videos online. These gifs would have our client’s logo on them to provide additional brand awareness. This also posed a challenge because GIFs require 2-3 photos and our template had only one.
To solve this problem, we used a few tricks that we had up our sleeve. Our booth would take three photos. The first photo would be available to print. The three photos would go into the creation of the GIF, which could be shared on social media.
How It All Came Together
This corporate photo booth MN adventure was unexpected from beginning to end. It was a smashing success. Everyone loved using the prop. It isn’t every day that we get to touch a piece of “Game of Throne” memorabilia. To have the actual throne was outstanding and we are grateful to Enseo and HBO for giving us an opportunity to be a part of such a cool event!

Most corporations host large gatherings at the end of the year to celebrate everything that has been accomplished and set the tone for the coming year. This winter we were on hand to provide a photo booth rental in Minnesota for a Great Gatsby-themed holiday party that stood out from the rest. Hosted at the elegant Blaisdell Mansion in Minneapolis, this night was full of laughter, celebration, and cheer.
There are multiple benefits to having a photo booth rental to complement your next corporate event. Here are a few of our favorites:
Party Favors With The Best Return On Investment
The best soirees include favors. Usually, gift bags with some trinkets printed with the company logo. But what happens to those trinkets once the festivities are done? In fact, how many of them don’t even make it out of the building? A photo booth rental from Time Into Pixels means your guests will walk away holding a memory of them smiling. Photos are cherished keepsakes that find their way into frames or pinned up onto memory boards. Invest in a simple memory that will keep your event in guests’ thoughts for years to come.
Team Bonding and Morale
Avoid any potentially awkward, or slow, moments in your event by guaranteeing that the attendees always have something fun to do together. The dance floor isn’t always for everyone, but a photo booth is a natural activity for various groups to do together quickly and easily. Teams can start unofficial competitions over which department takes the best picture, and everyone wins. Including a simple, quick, fun option like this will keep guests at your event moving and interacting more freely.
Promote Your Company
The printable photos that our booth provides will include a design that displays your company info and matches the theme of your event. Potential investors or clients attending your event will have a reminder of who you are that they are sure to hang on to.
A photo booth from Time Into Pixels, especially one that is themed to match your event, will leave your guests with lasting memories. To find out more about how we can customize a photo package for your next corporate gathering, large or small, visit our website.
During the first weekend in April, all eyes were on downtown Minneapolis for the NCAA Final Four. While the rest of the country was either cheering the stunning wins of Virginia and Texas Tech or nursing their wounds for Auburn and Michigan State, VIP guests got a taste of hometown pride with a Prince-themed party at Erik the Red. Here’s more on this fun photo booth rental in Minnesota:
We had a lot of fun working with our client, Meet Minneapolis, on the Prince-themed party. Prince is a Minnesota icon, and it was essential to get all of the details right in order to celebrate this pop legend. Our custom photo booth included props like an electric guitar and purple rain clouds. We also provided signs with that read “You’re filthy cute,” and “Dearly beloved”. The photos were further customized with a purple border, another homage to the late rock star.
Custom Photo Booth Rental
Custom props really helped this Final Four party come together, and can always benefit any themed event. We understand there is a fine line between upscale props, and cheesy decorations, which is why we have an in-house designer that will work directly with you to make sure we capture your vision. Our photo booth props are high-quality and can be used over and over again. Whether you are hosting a company-branded party or a specially-themed bash, we can help you come up with ideas to make your event unique.
We also have different styles of photo booths, depending on your needs. For the Prince-themed party, Meet Minneapolis opted for the Glam Booth option, which can provide color or black and white photos. We stuck with color photography to showcase the custom props. The Glam Booth option smoothes skin and helps everyone look their best. The Open Photo Booth was perfect for large groups and gave everyone room to show off their best Prince impersonations.

The Hendrickson Foundation hosted the National Hockey Festival in Blaine, Minnesota this February. This fundraiser event works to give individuals with disabilities the chance to play hockey. The foundation’s motto, “Hockey Changes Lives” was the running theme of the day, and we were honored to participate with our green screen photo booth.
Since this event supports such a fantastic cause, we made sure to pull out all the stops for our photo booth experience. Guests were delighted with the options, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with all the smiling faces.
The flexibility of our green screen backdrop allowed us to provide several different hockey-themed scenes for the festival’s guests. Participants posed in front of a hockey skate or in the middle of the action, right in front of the net. The multiple options easily allow our backdrop to work with groups or individuals, ensuring equal fun for everyone.
We had plenty of hockey-themed props on hand for the photos, inspired by the surrounding event. Guests also enjoyed playing with humorous signs and costume pieces to personalize all their photos.
Sharing The Love
Our green screen photo booth experience was extra special here because guests had the option to share pictures directly to social media. We had fun GIFs available to add on to the images as well. The social media option felt really unique to the guests, and it helped to spread the word about the great work happening at this fundraiser.
The Hendrickson Foundation was committed to making this an outstanding experience for all their guests. The tournament, and all the surrounding events all came together to support a wonderful cause, and we at Time Into Pixels were happy to be on hand to capture the magical moments.
