The Flipbooks Hawaii Story:
As Erica Martin planned her wedding, she was looking for a fun, interactive experience for her guests to take part in. Originally booking a photo booth, Erica traveled to San Diego with her family for a convention. Discovering PicFlips flipbooks for the very first time, she was eager to find someone in the islands who could do this. Unable to find a company, she collaborated with friend/techie/graphic designer Keith Usher and the two were able to bring the first PicFlips license to the 808. Flipbooks Hawaii is now three years old and has a wide range of clients to its list. Flipbooks Hawaii has become one of the island’s biggest party entertainment hits; from baby luaus, to Sweet 16’s to School Proms to Charity Fundraisers.
