What kinds of art files should I submit?

We require high resolution editable art files in either Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. We may be able to use PDF in some instances. All art files should be sent via a secure document sharing service like Google Drive, DropBox, or if done via email, please email to your account manager.

How can I pay for my order?

We accept credit card, checks, bank or wire transfers as forms of payment. Please note that we charge a 3% fee for credit card payments. Your account manager will provide you with bank wire instructions or a credit card authorization form to process your deposit and payments.

Due to the highly customized nature of Custom Shape and Custom Printed Balloons, we cannot provide a refund of any kind. We do stand behind the quality of our work, and if there is something wrong, we will do everything we can to make it right for you. Please let us know within 72 hours after receipt of product if there are any issues. 

Is it easy to re-order my balloons? 

Yes! Once the mold and art plates are created on the first order, we can produce a re-run of the same balloons for you on the next round. Turnaround should be faster as we will have everything set up for you providing the order was placed within one year from your last order.

We require high resolution editable art files in either Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. We may be able to use PDF in some instances. All art files should be sent via a secure document sharing service like Google Drive, DropBox, or if done via email, please email to your account manager.

How can I make the balloons shiny or matte?

If you want the balloons, or a portion of the balloon, to be shiny and reflective, we can leave the base as silver and it will become shiny. If we add a layer of white on top of the silver base (art plate), the color on top will be matte. We can discuss options with you on our exploratory phone call and via email to show you examples we have done for clients.

Can you attach ribbon to my balloons?

Yes! Our factory can add 7 feet of white coiled ribbon to each balloon for you prior to packaging for a small fee. We highly recommend this to avoid buying ribbon and having to attach to each yourself.

How much helium will my balloons need?

Once the balloons are finished, we can advise you as to the required amount of helium you will need to fill each balloon up with. We can also supply our E-Z Balloon Kit™ Helium Tanks for on-site helium balloon inflation at any of your events, trade shows, parties or more. Please inquire for a quote with your account manager.

Do you offer custom packaging? 

Yes! We can provide a template and you can supply us with customized packaging for single retail packs (e.g. 1 balloon per pack with printed insert card with UPC barcode). We offer full color printed insert cards, and can do 1-3 balloons per package for a small fee.

What is your standard packaging?

For most foil balloons, we offer them "flat packed" meaning they are uninflated and flat in a box. For larger 24"-36" balloons, we typically fold them and package them 5 pieces per clear polybag with sticker adhered. If you require any special packaging outside of this, we can provide a quote, let us know.

Do I need balloon weights to hold my balloons?

Yes! In California, it is penal law that any retailer selling and distributing helium filled mylar (foil) balloons must attach the correct size balloon weight to prevent balloons from floating into electrical power lines and causing outages/fires/injury. It is smart balloon practice to always tether your foil balloons with balloon weights. We manufacture a full range of designer Balloon Weights - please ask your sales manager for a quote.

How much helium will my balloons need?

Once the balloons are finished, we can advise you as to the required amount of helium you will need to fill each balloon up with. We can also supply our E-Z Balloon Kit™ Helium Tanks for on-site helium balloon inflation at any of your events, trade shows, parties or more. Please inquire for a quote with your account manager.
