Q: What is a flipbook?

A. It's a combination of a 1882 concept called "flipbook," where a series of drawings were stapled together to create the illusion of movement. In the 1960's the flipbook made a resurgence with companies such as Disney, Ford, and McDonald's using them for promotional purposes. Fast forward to today and the new flipbook. With new age patented technology, we can take a (6-7) second video footage of your guests acting out a skit, dancing, or just having fun, and instantly turn into "Fantastic Flipbooks" keepsake.
