Audio Guestbook Phone Rentals in Aberdeen, South Dakota

Our vintage style audio guest book phone rental is the ultimate way to capture your guest’s message for your next Aberdeen event. Guests pick up the phone, hear your recording, leave their message after the beep, and hang up. No phone line necessary! We make it super easy and fun for guests to leave their own recorded message for your special occasion.

Better than a traditional guestbook

Traditional guestbooks used to be a neat idea, but let’s face it… they have gone out of style and were kind of boring to begin with. Our audio guestbook phone gets rid of the pens and paper and gives guests the opportunity to really share what’s on their mind with candid (and sometimes drunk) voice messages that you’ll actually want to listen to.

Confessions Pt. 3

“These are my confessions.” Our audio guestbook phone gives you unlimited recording potential. Use it as an audio guestbook for your wedding. A “confessional” station for your Aberdeen party or South Dakota-based activation. A way for loved ones to record a message at a celebration of life or funeral. It can be used anywhere you need it.

Audio Guest Book Rental Features​

Our audio guestbook phone may look simple, but it is packed full of features! Add your own custom voicemail message that guests hear when they first pick up the phone. Upload an optional background image for fun waveform video clips of your messages. After your event, we share all of the messages, and optional waveform videos. Sit back and enjoy the unfiltered entertainment with unending replay value (Tip: Add a vinyl record for a special way to recall the memories).

Aberdeen Audio Guestbook Rental FAQs

The Audio Guestbook™ Phone is a special phone that can be used to record messages from loved ones live at your event. Rather than a video guestbook, an audio guestbook lets your guests be themselves leaving room for more candid conversations and messages that will be worth listening to over and over again. Just pick up the audio guestbook phone and leave your message after the tone.

Nope, we cut the phone cords! Our Audio Guestbook phone runs completely on its own, no phone outlet required. The only thing you need is nearby power or add the optional battery pack for more flexibility and setup anywhere! 

Our vintage style Audio Guestbook Phone is perfect for all sorts of occasions and events.

 

Weddings: Use it at your wedding to let guests leave their well-wishes for the lovely couple.

 

Funeral/Memorial: Use it at a celebration of life, funeral, or memorial service to honor your loved ones and give guests a chance to say goodbye, leaving you with beautiful memories to cherish for life.

 

Custom Activation: Use it for honest feedback from guests, or for a custom activation where secrets can be discreetly shared "confessional" style.

 

However you decide to use it, it is sure to be a hit and will leave you with memories to cherish for a lifetime.

The Video Waveform Mp4 is a video clip created in addition to the guest audio message. The way it works is we set your custom photo as the background image, and a visual audio waveform shows live as the guest message is played back. This makes for a fun, social-media friendly clip that you can share with family and friends afterwards. You can check out some examples of this here: Waveform Mp4 Messages

Our audio guest book ships to any address in the continental U.S. completely free of charge, and anywhere else in North America for $50. So whether you are located in Aberdeen, South Dakota, or elsewhere, we've got you covered.

One of the best parts about our Audio Guestbook is the ability to use it anywhere with our optional battery-pack. Depending on your needs, our standard battery-powered option will last you around 8-10 hours, making it perfect for any event and every location. Note: The battery pack still needs to be plugged into the phone via the phone's power cable.

Absolutely! Our Audio Guestbook can be rented per event, daily, and longer-term to fit your specific needs. Inquire now to get a custom quote for your Audio Guestbook rental. We can even help with custom activations. Imagine having an actual phone booth where guests can receive a secret, pre-recorded message speakeasy style. Or guests can share a story or their secret for the world to hear anonymously. If you can imagine it, we'll make it happen!

It's simple.

  1. Guests pick up the phone and hear a custom pre-recorded message.
  2. Guests leave their thoughts/rants/story/message, up to two and a half minutes in length, and then hang up.
  3. After your event, you'll get a private link with all of your audio files to download or use however you wish.

Yes! We can ship anywhere in North America and can even help with your wedding or event abroad in some cases.

For events outside the U.S. just let us know the exact location, and we'll get you a quote, or simply choose an address in North America to receive the phone from and make sure your rental dates cover the length of your trip! 

Yes! Pick from a variety of colors to suite your style. Want something completely custom made just for you? We've got you covered, just drops us a line and let us know what you're looking for.

Each guest audio recording will last up to 2.5 minutes in length, which gives even the chattiest Cathy's the chance to spill the beans. As soon as the phone is hung up, it's ready to re-record again.

We focus on providing top notch quality in all we do, and our Audio Guestbook is no exception. From super simple 1-step setup (just plug in and you're ready!), to a customized voicemail message/greeting guests hear, and even an ultra-shareable mp4 waveform clip afterwards. It doesn't get easier or more fun than this! In addition to the "basics" we've designed our Audio Guestbook in-house from the ground up to ensure the best possible recording quality and safeguards like automatic message backup, and safe-shutdown features to keep your messages from getting lost. We even have a lengthy 2.5 minute recording time, and can customize things even further for a special event or activation.

 

Tip: Some other providers offer an "audio guestbook" to rent, when in reality, it's just a dummy phone with a bulky audio recorder stuck on it or placed nearby. This results in less-than stellar audio (since it has to record from further away) and takes away from the aesthetic and authenticity of an actual vintage phone.

Returns are easy! Use the pre-printed, prepaid return label found inside your box. Make sure everything is packed back inside, following the guidelines and photos in the instruction sheet. Drop off at any UPS store for fast, convenient returns.

P.S. You have four days from your event date to return the phone. Hold on to your return receipt for proof of shipment in the event of a lost delivery.

Yes! Our Virtual Audio Guestbook solution is the perfect add-on to your audio guestbook rental when you have friends or family members that can't make it in person. They hear the same greeting when calling in, and afterwards, we'll combine your virtual voicemails with all of your in-person ones, so it's like they were there all along. 

Yes! You'll need to have a North American address to receive/send the phone from, or you can coordinate with one of your guests or planners to be the designated point of contact for receiving and shipping the phone back. Please note that the person receiving the phone will be listed as the responsible financial party. There may be additional rental charges for the extended use period needed for international travel.

You are able to use the Audio Guestbook virtually anywhere, but outdoors has a few additional considerations.

The skies should be clear with absolutely zero chance of rain in the forecast, or the phone will need to be completely covered overhead. A few drops can fry the system and leave you with a hefty replacement bill.

Additionally, the phone should always be shaded, and shouldn't be used in temperatures above 90F. High temps can cause the internal computer to overheat and will prevent it from working.

  1. When you receive your audio guestbook phone, make sure to test everything out to ensure your recorded voicemail plays, meaning everything is working!
  2. Find a setup location that is highly trafficked (on a table by the bar, at the welcome/gift table, etc).
  3. Avoid placing the phone near any speakers or in the direct line of your DJ/Band to avoid heavy background noise/music.
  4. Make sure to print out your provided guest signage/instructions to help people know what to do!
  5. With the battery-powered option, you can easily move the phone from one location to the next, meaning you can have it setup for cocktail hour, then move it to your ballroom for reception to ensure you get the most visibility and use.
  6. Before unplugging the phone, make sure to push the lighted power button underneath for 2 seconds and wait for all lights to turn off.  This ensures a proper shutdown to keep your messages safe!
