The Famous “TBOX Frames” – A Closer Look

Taking tons of fun pictures is a big part of the TBOX Experience! To make this even better, our unique Picture Frames will let everyone know where you are, when it was, and how you’re doing! Check out below for some of our frames thru the years!

Frames at the TBOX 12 Bars of Xmas Chicago Pub Crawls

How did this start? As a youth, TBOX Founder Mr. Festa saw these “Kodak Picture Spot” signs at Disney World telling you where nice places to take a picture would be. It seemed really absurd, like, do you really need to be told where to take a picture? But it stuck in his head… and he happened to remember this in 2002, but wanted to enhance the concept, and the first TBOX Picture Frames were born!

Mr. Festa can tell you – no joke – HE INVENTED THESE FRAMES!!! No one was doing this before 2002, and everyone else is now –it all started at TBOX!

By 2008, we started making professional frames, and today, our sponsor Bud Light prints beautiful full-color frames for every TBOX venue. We also have frames for our other crawls throughout the year!
