Quality & recycling
We use the best quality latex balloons which bio-degrade in about 6 months. Our foil balloons (more durable than the latex) are also made from best quality Mylar (Nylon 6) which is recyclable at most council recycling points. Our balloons are printed to the highest standards using tried and tested digital / silk-screen printing methods to produce sharp images of your artworks on 1 or 2 sides of the balloons.
How many colours can I print?
Our latex balloons can be printed in up to 8 spot colours on 1 side and foils balloons up to 6 spot colours on 1 or 2 sides. When printing 2 or more colours of a single artwork, slight movement between the colours may occur due to printing on to a soft / partially inflated surface.
On receipt of your suitable artwork, we will email over a pre-production example / proof, showing how your balloons will look once printed. The proof must be approved by you in writing before printing can commence.
Complex full colour artwork consisting of photos and / or tonal areas (where colours merge in each other) are also achieved by applying a pre-printed self-adhesive medium to both sides of an 18” or 36” foil balloon. Please call for a quotation.
If urgent orders are placed before 2.00pm we can usually print and dispatch by courier on the same day (subject to availability) for next working day delivery (Saturday delivery available at additional cost).
Artwork & file types
Good printing results are achieved from suitable good quality / high resolution artwork supplied to us. Vectorised artwork (such as EPS files) produces the best results. We accept the following file types: EPS, JPEG, PDF, PNG, Adobe PS & AI.
