What is a contactless booth?

Like magic, but more hygienic. The complete photo booth experience without touching the booth. Touch free booth software takes and shares photos, burst and slideshow GIFs without attendant or guests touching the booth.

Instead, guests use a unique QR code generated on their smart phone to control the booth and share images. This QR code can be generated in several ways

  1. using the Breeze web pages
  2. creating your own QR code generator using WordPress plugins
  3. using custom scripts hosted on your website

This tutorial explains how to make the Breeze web page your own, and how to use the free banner designs kindly provided by 6 Figure Photobooths

Using straight from the box

Just to be clear. You don’t have to brand the contactless booth screen, it works straight from the box. You can

  • either give guests a link to
  • or ask guests to scan a copy of this QR code on their cell phone

Scan this code to go to the Breeze QR code generator at

This is the basic screen displayed on a smart phone: page straight from the box

Read on and learn how to transform this screen for your own business and events.

Add a banner to brand the screen

First add some graphics. Your business brand, your client’s logo, a theme for the event. Use different graphics for each event if you choose.

You don’t need to use your own graphics, you can choose from the set we host. Caroline Winata (6 Figure Photobooths) has generously created a set of 16 banners for Breeze customers to use with, which you can find here

Here is one of them

Adding your own banner

To use your own banner, you need to add a parameter to the original webpage url

Look carefully at this url

(I have used four colors to make this easier to understand. You don’t need them.)

  1. The first part is familiar
  2. Next  is an instruction ? to use a banner parameter ?banner
  3. Finally I added the location of the banner I want to use =

To use your own banner, you need to host it on your own website.  Then simply replace with the location of your banner.

Change or remove the title

To change the title use a different parameter called title. Add the title SuperBooth like this:

See for yourself

Including spaces and special characters in titles

There are a few annoying details (aka URL encoding) when titles include spaces and special characters. These are the most common:

  • Replace spaces in the title with %20
  • Replace ampersand &  with %26

So for

  • Graduation Congratulations use title=Graduation%20Congratulations
  • Sue & John use title=John%20%26%20Sue
  • John & Sue’s Wedding use title=John%20%26%20Sue’s%20Wedding

To remove the title, you need title=%20

Don’t worry about guests typing out or seeing these urls – they won’t need to! I will cover this later.

Combining a title with a banner

Put a question mark ? before the first parameter, and an ampersand & before any extra parameters

Now try

We have covered the more complicated stuff now, the rest is a romp in the park…

Allow guests to cc emails to a second address

To allow the QR code to have two email addresses, use a different parameter called cc

Add a custom background image

Adding a custom background image is similar to the way you add a banner.

The parameter for a background image is bg and you need to host the image on your own website. For example

Switch to white text with a dark background

If your background is dark, you may need white text to contrast. The parameter for this is dark

Combining several parameters

You can combine any of these parameters together.

Remember to use a question mark ? before the first parameter, and an ampersand & before any extra parameters.

Shortening the URL and replacing it with a QR code

URL shortening

Nobody wants to actually see

URL shortening sites like tinyURL or bitly transform a long url into something much shorter. Or use redirects on your own site from a page with a memorable  URL.

For example tinyURL and bitly convert

to this…

QR codes are back with a vengeance since Apple let iPhone cameras read them without downloading an App. You may not want your guests to see a url at all. Consider converting the URL to a QR code, and have guests scan this code.

You can share QR codes by email and MMS, print them on badges and signs, add them to your idle screen…

From URL to QR code

QR code generators such as QRCodeMonkey will create unique QR codes from the URLs above. Show or share the QR code with guests, who scan to see your custom QR code generator.

Tips for using QR code generators

  • Use short URLs for clearer QR codes
  • Simple QR codes are easier to scan
  • Shorten long URLs  before creating QR code
  • Keep logos small for successful scanning
  • Keep it simple – colors and fancy shapes are attractive but harder to scan

The 3 QR codes below were generated using QRCodeMonkey. They all take you to the same place, but some are simpler than others to read.  Check your own QR codes scan well the way you you plan to use them.

Share examples with the Breeze community

I would love to see how you transform into an attractive entrance to your events. If you are up for sharing, do email an example to It would be amazing to share some of your work on this page! Do check you have the right to share all images included.

To finish

  • There is no extra charge for Breeze customers to point guests to to generate unique QR codes
  • You can brand the page to make it your own and even customize it for each event
  • Add your own own banner, background and titles
  • Add a second optional cc email address field
  • Feel free to use the banners Caroline Winata generously designed
  • Check your QR codes are easy to scan the way you you will be using them.

This tutorial just explains how to customize the page. You can also include registration, survey, data prefrences and more in Breeze QR codes. This is is beyond the scope of this tutorial. Check out this video for ideas
