At the Event
Do we need any special kind of hook-up or facilities, to set up the MimeoFun Mirror on-site?A normal AC power source (13 amp plug) is all that is needed, preferably within 10 feet. But, if it’s longer we will provide extension cables and ensure all cables are health and safety managed.
Will there be someone at the event to maintain the MimeoFun Mirror?Yes. Professionally dressed hosts called MimeoFun mates are on hand and will accompany the mirror to your event. They will monitor the mirror constantly to ensure it’s running properly and encourage guests to use the MimeoFun Mirror.
Do you have any suggestions on how to make sure we and our guests take full advantage of the MimeoFun mirror?Based on the event, place the mirror in a popular area such as near the bar or dance floor. We would suggest you let your guests know where it is and that it is available to them at no cost. Easy and creative ways to do this is: - MC or DJ announcements - Provide a note at the place setting.
Can we regulate how often people visit the MimeoFun Mirror?Yes. We will come up with a plan with you before the event if you think that may be a problem. This is commonly considered when lots of kids are at an event, as they tend to use the MimeoFun Mirror a lot. Mind you, this is okay by us, but if you think it may be a problem then we can implement a “ticket” plan or something of the sort, that way, all the adults will get a fair shot at the fun!
How much time is needed to set up the MimeoFun Mirror?It can take us anywhere from 30-45 minutes to set up ,so, we will arrive on site at least one hour before your hire time is due to start, this time is included and is not counted as part of your run time.
What if there is a mechanical failure during the event?Our on-site MimeoFun mate will work as fast as possible to resolve any issues. We guarantee that our MimeoFun Mirror will be running for at least 80% of the time due to any problems. This will be pro-rated and done at our discretion. Not to worry, we are professional and work fast to remedy any unforeseen problem. If a major problem were to happen and another unit was needed, we are never more than a few minutes away with a replacement. This has never happened!
MimeoFun Mirror how far in advance do I need to book?Reserve your date as soon as you know. Dates fill up exceptionally fast during peak seasons. If you have an event that is short notice, contact us as soon as possible.
How long should I rent the MimeoFun Mirror for?If you want around 200 prints, you should rent it for 4 or 5 hours. This depends on how available you want the MimeoFun Mirror to be for your guests. Of course, it also depends on how long your event is, and how many people are attending. To ensure that everyone gets a chance to use your MimeoFun Mirror you should plan on at least 2 hours for every 100 guests. In most cases, our clients rent the photo mirror for 5 hours for up to 200 guests.

If you need to change your date, there is never a charge if done with at least 30 days’ notice. If you need to cancel your order entirely, any money paid as a deposit cannot be returned if it is less than 30 days to the event. If over 30 days, a full refund will be given.

What do you mean by Customised animation?The exciting thing about the mirror is that you can put up to 3 different phrases (animations) on the mirror. For example, the opening phrase maybe: “Welcome to Sophie’s and Tom’s wedding”, the 2nd phrase might be: “smile now you’re on camera” and the 3rd:“Have a fab time!” Between each of these phrases, a photo will be taken. We can put any animations on the screen and this is agreed before the event by the host.

Can the MimeoFun Mirror be setup outside?Yes, if there is shelter provided, such as a tent or cover. If nothing is provided we may be able to provide a cover.

Have it idle for an hour during dinner and then have it run for a couple more hours during the reception as well or, for example, if you require the MimeoFun Mirror setting up at 6pm but do not want it running until 9pm, and you have paid for a package of 3 hrs, this would be charged at 3 idle hours on top of the hire costs. Idle hours are charged at £25 per hour.

What is the difference between “Unlimited Photos” and “Unlimited Prints”?Some companies out there offer “Unlimited Photos” but not “Unlimited Prints”. This simply means that you and your guests can take as many pictures as you want, but may only get a single copy. Your guests can use the MimeoFun Mirror as often as they like and a photo will be printed each time at no extra cost to the host. The host will also receive a USB flash drive at the end of the event. The flash drive contains a copy of each photo strip and each individual picture.
What printers do you use?We use thermal dye sublimation printers; the same as the printers which photo processing companies use, the best in the business. The prints are fast, touch dry and water proof immediately.
What cameras do MimeoFun Mirrors use?We use high-end, professional DSLR cameras, resulting in sharp, quality pictures.
Will the photo strips fade after a week or so?Prints are made using the same technology as on hour photo labs. So,there is no need to wait for your print to dry, and risk smudging it all up. When it comes out it’s all done, dry, and ready to enjoy! Your strips should also last you more than a lifetime.
What if we lose a print?You can have a copy of every picture, as the host will be given a USB drive of all your pictures at the end of your event.
