How does the audio guestbook work?

Very simple! Your guests pick up the phone and hear our standard announcement or your personal announcement. "After the beep" guests can leave voice messages. When they're done, they just put the phone back down. The message is then stored securely.

An instruction for your guests, in the form of a pretty rollup banner (DIN A3 format), is included in every delivery.

How does my personal greeting (optional) get on the phone?
After making your booking, you can send us a personal message via WhatsApp. Kindly include the order number in the chat. Alternatively, you can forward an audio file to us via email. If not, we will proceed with our standard announcement.
Some guests may not be able to attend in person. Is there a solution?

For this purpose we offer you our "Virtual Audio Guestbook".

We create a personalized website for you, where guests can easily leave voice messages for your audio guestbook.

The page will be activated one day before your booking and will be online for seven days after your event. This way, even guests who may not have used the Retro Audio Guestbook at the event itself have the opportunity to send you messages afterwards.

Do the guest books require a WiFi connection?

No. Connect the connection cable to the charged powerbank - after about 30 seconds the Retro Audio Guestbook is ready for use.

The included powerbank lasts for more than 24 hours without problems.

When and how do I receive the voice messages?

How it all began...

The emergence of

The short answer: The idea sprang up from a friend's WhatsApp status, but that was just the kickoff. We delved into countless hours of research, ordering electronic components online, and scouting for old phones. We brought in a laser engraver, organized several photo shoots, and put our heart into programming this website. Here's the amazing result for you to check out!

Our claim is to be the #1 audio guestbook rental company. We want to inspire you and give you a lifetime of memories. We are convinced that our result lives up to this claim.

We would be very happy if you book your audio guestbook with us.

Warm regards,
