Coffee Photo Booth – Ripples Coffee Printer

The Coffee Photo Booth Experience

The Ripples Coffee Printer

Watch the video above to see how it works and then ask us about bringing this awesome new technology to your event!

We are bringing an entirely new idea of a photo booth to your next event!

Would you really like to impress your guests?  Are you promoting your brand or product?  How would you like to have your initials or photos printed on top of the coffees for your guests at your wedding reception?  Want to show off the mascot of your high school or the college you are headed off to?

With our new Ripples coffee art – you can do all of this!  Your guests can even send us pictures they have on their phones via an app and in just a few moments that picture will be on their coffee!

How does this work?  Using the latest internet of things technology, we can print any photo, logo, image or text on top of your coffee!  This food-safe printing technology uses coffee oils as the ink and doesn’t alter the taste of the beverage at all.

Options available for the Ripples Experience include:

  • Selfie Station
    • We provide an iPad on a stand next to our coffee cart where your guests can take their photo and send it directly to their drink!  Guests will love seeing and sharing their photos of their selfie-cappuccinos and social-lattes!
  • Ripples App Experience
    • Your guests can download the free Ripples App (available on Apple and Google App Stores) and send us any photo on their phone directly to their drink!  They can have photos of their kids, pets, cars or anything else directly on their drink!
  • Logo  & Design Options
    • You provide us with a photo, logo or image to put on your drinks along with any text and we will design the image for you. Be sure to include any #hashtags for social media sharing!
    • Free option: We will send you directions and templates to design your own image, text or logo.  You then send us the file so we can add it to your drinks.
