LICENSING FAQ

What's the cost?
You don’t pay anything for the first 6 months! After that your license fee is less than one event a month.

How long is the agreement?
A 3 year license agreement is what we sign. You have the option to extend after that.

How fast can I make money?
You can start booking events immediately- before you even have a bus!

Why multiple booths?
The more places you can be at once, the more money you can make at a single time.

What if I want to license in multiple cities?
Sure! Your license fee is per city. We encourage you to start with one, though, to get the hang of it before expanding to another city.

What is the time commitment?
Ultimately this is your business- so it will be what you put into it. We encourage you to look at it as having two full-time jobs before you decide to quit your day job.

Why shouldn't I do this by myself?
We’ve seen significantly more VW bus photo booth businesses pop up and disappear than we’ve seen them succeed. It looks easy. Pop a camera in a bus and boom, you’ve got a business. But it’s not that easy. We were the first and we’ve been doing it longer than anyone else, which means we’ve made the mistakes so you don’t have to.

What do I get for the license fee?
You get to be on this website, we create and host your website (which you have full editing access of), use of our logo and name should you wish to use it, an equipment list, marketing materials should you wish to use them, in-person training for your first event, access to our event agreements, 24/7 support should you need it, access to our custom-designed photobooths that no one else has, and the best part is you get to be a part of a nationwide family instead of all by yourself.

Can I use my own bus?
Absolutely! In fact, it will save you a lot of money! But here’s the deal. If you already own a bus it is possible that this bus is your baby. And proud parents sometimes have a hard time handing their babies over, right? Well, that’s what happens with a bus. Over the course of your initial license agreement you’ll be attending hundreds of events… with THOUSANDS of people getting in and out. It’s likely to get scratched and dinged and, depending on the bus, you might have some initial work to do on it.

Will you help me find a bus?
Absolutely! Not every bus is created equal. We know this- ask us about Mater.

What if I need help at an event?
Call us! If we’re unavailable (which has rarely happened) you’re lucky in that you have a whole family to help you out :)

Do you provide the equipment list?
Absolutely. Of course you can do it your own way… but we don’t recommend it.
