Broaden Your Social Reach with Hashtag Printing

June 19, 2017

Meet the Hashtag Printer!


There’s a new, magical member of the Hip Image team that we’d like to introduce you to.


If you’re not using a polaroid camera, getting a physical copy of a photo taken at an event can be a hassle. We’ve solved this with our new professional photo grade hashtag printer that works hand-in-hand with Instagram to provide your guests with a custom branded take-home photo AND drive social traffic to build your brand. It’s been circulating at events for a couple weeks now, and guests are finding it to be a lot of fun.


Drive guests to your hashtag on Instagram

It’s a super easy, organic way to promote a hashtag, get more likes and increase your company’s social reach, whether that be tied in with a marketing campaign, product launch, grand opening, fundraiser or more.


The hashtag printer brings an extra experience to all events. It can be fully branded from the interface through to the print, user-friendly and customizable. So now guests can brag about all the fun they’re having online and in-person.


Social Media Marketing

Create buzz for your campaign on Instagram by promoting your hashtag in real. Give your guests a reason to post with the benefit of a beautiful print—something you don’t get just by posting alone. We might even help your event trend!


Custom Branded Prints

We’ll create a customized template for your image which includes your logo and messaging. It’s a perfect keepsake that stays around in your guest’s office, kitchen, or home long after your event is over so your event branding message lives on long after the dust has settled.


Unlimited Printing

Have a group photo? No problem. We offer unlimited printing so everyone walks away happy with their professional grade photo. Yay!


Photo Pros & Brand Ambassadors
You can rent the hashtag printer as a stand-alone—but you’ll get maximum exposure with one of our super friendly photo booth ambassadors. You brief us on your event message and we’ll be your on-the-ground brand extension team. Plus, we make sure the guests have a great time with or without props, can help take guest “selfies” and make sure the technology works seamlessly.
