Flipbooks Have Made A Comeback!
Did you know flip books were recognized as one of the earliest forms of what today is referred to as “interactive multimedia”? Flipbooks were first patented in the U.S. on May 16, 1882 by Henry Van Hovenbergh of Elizabeth, New Jersey. Early flip books consisted of simple drawings stacked in sequential stages of movement with a single staple binding. When the pages were flipped, they would create the optical illusion of motion.
Flipbooks were then popularized in the early 1900′s by the Cracker Jack Company who gave them away as free in-pack prizes. Other marketers soon followed suit, including manufacturers of breakfast cereals, bubble gum, cigarettes, automobiles and snack foods. The trend continued strong through the 1960′s. But unfortunately, that trend ended in the 1970′s as new technologies began to take the spotlight.
But now, flipbooks are back and better than ever! Go Festive offers the most engaging and entertaining flipbook experience. We’ve also created a process to make the design and production of flip books from live-action video footage easy and efficient. For an unforgettable moment, rent a Go Festive flipbook station now!

Praise for GO FESTIVE!
Anna and Dan had us at their wedding celebration in May and had a great time in the booth – as did all their guests. Thanks for the kind words Anna and Dan, and Congratulations again on your wedding!
“To the GO FESTIVE! Team-
Now that the dust has settled on our wedding, and we’ve begun to get organized, we wanted to write to thank you all so much for the FANTASTIC job you did at our May 2nd party! The photo booth was an incredible hit, with guests going in and out all night, many of them multiple times! Everyone commented (and is still commenting) on what a fun addition the booth was to the party. Your staffer was also great to work with; incredibly professional, very helpful, and game for fun!
All our thanks and best wishes-
Anna and Dan”
