The Instagram Pod

The Pod with the Social Media Inter-FACE

In a world where the Selfie is ever-popular, the Instagram Pod really helps to generate a BIG Impact at your event. Trended, ‘self-taken’ images – via Twitter and Instagram – are displayed, on our Pod’s touchscreen interface, where the user can browse and print, providing a perfect take-home memento.

This technology packed Pod offers full customisation – physically and digitally – with numerous options, to create that huge social buzz. This product also works well alongside our Tweet Wall (with its associated Analytics platform), which really can amplify your brand to the next level!

As with all our products, we can tailor the internal, external and supplementary items, so get in touch to discuss the best package for your event!

CUSTOM PRINTS

All our units produce output which is ‘fully’ customisable. We have our own designer to ensure your requirements are met to the highest level, be it following branding guidelines, or customising graphics for a private event, we can do it all!

None of our products go to an event without prior approval either. We always ensure mock-ups are provided, and subsequently signed off, to ensure you know exactly what is being produced. for your event (in plenty of time) – we don’t want any unwelcome surprises on the day itself!

Some options include; bespoke branding, overlays, inclusion / editing of comments (from Twitter / Instagram) and several format options – the possibilities are endless!

CUSTOM EXTERIORS

We offer a choice of black or white exterior as standard – this can also be de-branded if required.

We also offer partial, or complete custom branding options.

Finally, we provide alternative product options of vinyl, or static cling stickers, where full branding is not a required or viable option. These are variable in size and work perfectly for those on a reduced budget, with no compromise on the quality of the end product – we only look to provide the best for our clients!

Our designer will assist in a full consultation, to ensure maximum brand awareness can be achieved, with your chosen option.

 

** All branding products are stored at our warehouse, for a period of 1 year following the event in question, prior to disposal. Clients are welcome to use these again during this period, as required **

CUSTOM BACKDROPS

We offer a choice of black or white exterior as standard – this can also be de-branded if required. We also offer partial, or complete custom branding options.

Although our Insta-Pod’s don’t require a background, we do offer hireable solutions, which can be fully customised. This could allow a Selfie to be taken in front of a branded backdrop, at one central location – generating a huge buzz, with maximum brand awareness!

We can either offer a 2m x 2m standalone ‘aluminium’ frame which accommodates ‘stretched fabric graphics’, or, alternatively, we can customise pull-up banner backdrops, which are variable in sizes and are highly versatile (and a little more portable).

With all options, we offer a graphic design service, should you prefer us to do the work. Get in contact to run through all options on offer!

If you wanted to create an interactive printout – a dual take home memento -a ‘tear off’ coupon, or simply generate a ‘call-to-action’, we can achieve it all.

We also offer a full design service to ensure you maximise the usage of this addition.

This really does offer another level of creativity, so think outside of the box to see how this can generate a BIG Impact at your event.

This usually goes hand in hand with customisation of the interface for the Pod, so it’s best to get in touch so we can discuss how to maximise this product’s impact, at your event

CUSTOMISED PROPS

If required, we can offer a complete custom box of props with tailored chalkboards / whiteboards, frames and themed items – there are numerous options to consider!

This would work well with Images taken against a branded back-drop, to create a scene or theme, relating to your hashtag, or simply used to prompt social sharing / trending (great for exhibition stands in particular!).

We have lots to offer, so get in touch to see how we can go the extra mile for your event.

PRODUCT VARIATIONS

Often, we build, customise or White Label our products to reflect the needs of our clients, or the specific ‘brief’. Nothing is too complex for us!

Our creative team can customise internally, externally, digitally or physically, so trust us with your brief and we will look to make a BIG Impact at your event (nothing is ‘standard’ with us!)

MINI INSTA-POD (TABLETOP)

The Instagram Pod doesn’t need to be a large free-standing unit, if you are tight on space. If required, this can be cut down to sit nicely on a table top, for space saving. We can even make this much smaller for discreet usage – this would certainly make one small Pod, with BIG potential!

SEMI-PERMANENT INSTALLATION

Often our products are required to be built into various ‘custom’ structures, to fit the brand, or theme – this can be for short, or long-term hire. This is especially ideal for an Exhibition stand where products need a suitable disguise, to fit into.

We can creatively do anything, as required, so get in touch to speak to the team and see what we can do to make a BIG Impact at your event!

CUSTOM TOUCH-SCREEN INTERFACE

Quite often we customise the Interface for a client, in order to brand the complete experience, from start to finish. We can add / alter buttons, or change the function entirely.

Creatively, we can do almost anything to match your brief, so get in touch to discuss this further!
