What is Instalab?

Not only great entertainment for guests, but a fantastic business

How does it work?
watch video

We set up special equipment at events and functions of any size.

We photograph guests or ask them to scan a QR-code and upload photos from their smartphones or social media. These photos we print out as magnets with the customer's logo, and then give out to the guests. Using only one set of our equipment, we can produce up to 800 high-quality, waterproof photo magnets per hour.

Photo magnets are personalised souvenir with the customer's logo, which guests are certain to keep.

With our equipment, we are able to make magnets in the shapes of squares, hearts, circles, stars, rectangles, and even polaroids or business cards.

Although we are usually hired by event management or marketing companies, it's also possible to set up Instalab at public events and sell magnets to guests, or even to open a booth in a shopping centre.

With each individual magnet costing less than 10c to produce, Instalab competes easily with serious typography services. The quality of our magnets is truly impeccable, and our equipment can be transported by one man in a small car, and easily set up on a standard office desk. Not only that, it takes all of 20 minutes to teach someone how to use it, even if they've never done anything like it before.

Instalab is already established, and working successfully, in 54 cities throughout Russia, Europe and Central Asia. Not without a little pride, we are able to say that none of our partners have been disappointed with their decision to join Instalab. We host live chat and a forum in a private section of our website, where our partners chat regularly and share their experiences with each other.

Hundreds of thousands of Instalab magnets already decorate our clients' fridges. We love what we do, and we think you will too. Come join us!

Our story

There are still many big events and developments ahead of us. But it's still important to look back now and then.

First project in Moscow

Developing the concept, working on our production technology and writing our software took almost 9 months. Instalab first saw the light at the "Innovative Event" in Moscow.

Crazy success in Saratov

The company Mnogo Mebel had a bold idea: to build the biggest sofa in the world. They decided to build it in Saratov. We printed 2400 magnets in just 6 hours. Saratov locals asked us where and when they could purchase the equipment for themselves. Upon returning, we began to think seriously about franchising.

Instalab goes to Chicago

The company Shake Shack really liked Instalab at the opening of their restaurant in Moscow. They wanted the same thing for the opening of a new restaurant in Chicago, but couldn't find anything like Instalab in the US. Very surprised, they invited us to come specially from Moscow. Just one of our employees managed to deliver the equipment and work at the event.

Franchising

Finally, we were ready to launch Instalab as a franchise. We took part in the expo "Reklama". We attracted enough attention to sign agreements with our first 4 franchisees.

Rapid growth

Instalab affiliates are opening not only all across Russia, but also abroad. Today, our partners represent Instalab in over 54 cities. Meanwhile, we've introduced 15 new magnet formats and added multiple new capabilities to our software. We are continuing to grow and to work on improving our service, so that our partners can increase their profits.
