Bournemouth Balloons

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the best balloon for my occasion?

We get asked this every day. There are so many different types of balloons so have a look at the pictures in our Gallery and hopefully this will give you a better idea. Then contact us to discuss your requirements.

How long will balloons last?

This depends on what type of balloons you choose. Please see below for approximate float times of each type of balloon.

Do you deliver?

Yes we do. We offer a full delivery and set up service for all your decorations. Delivery & set up charges are quoted on an individual basis. Please contact us for a quote.

What are foil balloons?

Made of: Metallicised nylon.
Float time: we predict 2-3 days but can be longer.
Shapes: stars, hearts and circles.
Colours: All and Themed, we can personalise these, see our personalised page for details.

Please note, foil balloons are particularly sensitive to temperature and may not always be suitable for outdoor use. On a very cold day, the helium will compress and make the balloon look saggy. On a very hot day, the helium will expand – balloons burst in hot cars, and as a result of extreme change of temperature. On a rainy day, the balloon will sink! Foil balloons are not suitable for a release.

What are latex balloons?

Made of: all our latex balloon's are made from 100% natural latex.
Float time: around 16 hours. We can treat latex balloons with a product called Hi-Float, which extends flying time by around a week.
Shapes: normally 11" round, we also use larger and smaller sizes for our specialised balloon decorating. Finishes: pearlised, clear and printed.

Can you personalise balloons?

Yes, we can print on latex balloons your name or logo in either single or full colour, we require at least 14 days notice for this.

We can also personalise both 18" and 36" foil balloons, for this service we require at least 24 hours notice.

Is there anything else you can personalise?

Yes, there are a number of items we can personalise such as:

Engraving (key fobs, trophy plaques, letter openers etc.)
Hot Foil Printing (napkins, diaries etc.)
