As the industry is expanding so is the availability of different types of booths.

Prices for different booths will differ. There are so many booths on the market the cheaper companies will have cheaper booths, for example the mirror booth we have in stock is the original and best one on the market, purchased from fotomaster and running the Mirror Me software it has amazing changing animations and the signing feature do not be fooled by the cheaper mirrors.
