When you rent a photobooth for your event, The Columbus Photo Booth Company has a booth attendant assist your guests at the event. The attendant will arrive early, set up, coordinates the props for you and interact with your guests during their photo booth experience. We like to give our customers the option to tip your booth attendant(s).

We got to thinking about how many places around the world perceive the act of tipping for certain services and what is considered an appropriate tip percentage.Do you ever find yourself asking how much do I tip (if at all) the Valet, Car Detailer, Server, Beautician, Barber, or even the Pizza Delivery guy? We were able to dig up 5 Interesting Facts about the culture of tipping - you can find more resources about tipping etiquette at: http://www.businessinsider.com/a-complete-guide-to-tipping-etiquette-2013-6

FACT #1 - Leaving a gratuity in Japan is considered an insult. So if you are throwing an Asian themed/inspired event or party - that’s something to keep in mind!

FACT # 2 - It is customary to tip your hairdresser 15% to 20%. Wedding Up-Do’s for the entire bridal shower aren’t the cheapest part of wedding planning but for some an absolute must.

FACT #3 - If you are taking a taxi or limo from venue to venue or reception hall to home, prepare to tip 15% to taxi drivers and 20% to larger luxury vehicle drivers.

FACT #4 - For all you newlyweds (to be) out there. Know that if you are planning to move into a bigger house to fit your new family, your movers are typically tipped an average of $20 per mover (especially the local moving businesses).

FACT #5 - Have a few too many guests at your house party for that 50 guest Birthday last night? We know - they all crammed in our photo booth (and fit!) But what about post clean up? If you hire in a cleaning company to service your post party train-wreck, know that a tip of 20% is appropriate.
