Photo Booth Printer DNP DSRX1 Review

The DNP DSRX1 printer has been the workhorse of our photo booth company for over a year now.  We thought that it was a good time to post a long term review of the printer in an effort to help others make their purchase decision.  When we purchased the DNP, we had to take a leap of faith based on recommendations from others on which printer would work best for our event photography.  We have used a number of printers in the past 13 years for our event photography but the DNP has been the most professional level unit that we have purchased.

We purchased our DNP from Imaging Spectrum.  Steve Behen was and continues to be our salesman.  Steve had a lot of brands available but recommended the DNP.  We placed our first order for 1 unit for our Delaware photo booth and it arrived a few days later.  We were able to add a 3 year extended warranty to unit for an additional $50.  We felt really good about this unit right out of the box.  After a year of ownership, we still feel good about the printer and particularly feel good about the customer service that Steve Behen has offered.  Believe it or not, he calls us every few months to make sure the printer is working well in our booth.

The instructions on how to use the unit was in print and on YouTube.  We quickly learned to load the paper and load the sub-dye ribbon.  I expected it to be messy or troublesome but it proved to be very easy to load.  Once we loaded the printer, we started to run sample sessions on our photo booth.  It worked flawlessly.  We discovered after running a few session that the printer has a paper cutter embedded in the printer to cut to the traditional 4 x 6 photo strip size.  The cutter is turned off via the printer driver software.  This is a huge time saver at an event.

The prints come out of the printer cut in less than 10 seconds after the booth session ends.  The prints are dry and have a perfect color match.  We had only 1 paper jam after several hundred photo booth sessions.  The paper jam is best described as a paper crinkle.  We cut the paper and reloaded the paper and were back in business in about 5 minutes.  To be clear, 1 jam in a year is not bad at all.

There are 700 prints on a roll and 2 rolls in a box of supplies for a total of 1400 prints.  Cut to 2 x 6, that yields a lot of prints.  A box of paper and dye ribbon is less than $180.  Low operating expenses are very important to a photo booth operator.  The DNP DSRX has been the most reliable printer that we have ever purchased with no requirements to service it during the year.

The true test of if a product is just good or truly great is your future buying decisions.  A good product is recommended to others.  A great product is a product that you would purchase again.  For our Maryland booth, we purchased another DNP DSRX1 printer just a few months later.  Still months later, we purchased a 3rd DNP DSRX1 printer for our North Carolina booth.  To date, all 3 printers have been “bullet proof”.  As we continue to grow our photo booth and event photography business, our first choice will be DNP and Imaging Spectrum.

Wedding Photo Booth, Chesapeake City, Maryland

MidAtlantic Photo Booths continues to expand it’s regional presence.  We recently were the photo booth vendors for a wonderful wedding at the Chesapeake Inn in Chesapeake City, MD.  The venue is known locally by most as a picturesque location located just outside of Delaware on the southern canal banks.  John and Lisa’s wedding reception was on the 2nd floor ballroom overlooking other guests and boaters.106396 106415 106416

The group was a true party group.  They started to use the booth immediately.  The guests used our props and also provided their own props.  All age ranges managed to get to the photo booth.  We provided unlimited prints to each guests along with a scrapbook for the bride and groom.

The staff at the Chesapeake Inn made it really easy for us to transition in and transition out.  Believe it or not, they even valet parked our photo booth trailer.  This was a great venue and a great couple.

 

Thank you for trusting to fun to MidAtlantic Photo Booths.

Quinceanera Photo Booth in Hanover, MD

Quinceanera’s recognize that a young woman is transitioning from childhood to the age of maturity.  What better reason for a party?  MidAtlantic Photo Booths just provided the photo booth rental for Gabriellla’s party.  The venue was the Hotel at Arundel Preserve, Hanover, Maryland.  The hotel is a full service, filled with luxury and feels very chic.This photo booth rental was part of our growing Washington DC / Baltimore market.

At 7pm, the festivties started and the photo booth was in full use.  The guests ranged in varying ages but most were between 13 and 18 years. Old.  Gabriella was the center of attention and had a wonderful time at the photo booth.  Her guests seemed to have a blast at the booth also.  We produced over 120 photo strips with a custom birthday balloon theme.  Our photo booth scrapbook is included with our service.  The scrapbook was work of art on this one.

We owe a special thanks to Sulma (mother) for hiring us.  Sulma could have hired any photo booth company in Maryland, but she choose MidAtlantic Photo Booths and we appreciate it.
