Ideal for making balloon arches or clusters. The transparent nylon is easily disguised in whatever decoration you choose to make.

Ribbons are used not only to attach balloons to but also as a form of decoration and as a tool to wrap presents with. The curling ribbons are normally used with helium filled balloons whereas the florist ribbon is used normally with larger balloons such as big shapes and jumbos. They all come in a variety of colours. The florist ribbon can be split which enables you to choose exactly the width you'd like. The florisr ribbon is heavier than curling ribbon so shouldn't be used with, say, 18" foil balloons because the balloons would find it hard to float due to the weight of the ribbon. Curling ribbon, as the name suggests, can be curled quite easily to make a pretty decoration. The florist ribbon when split can also be curled. The florist ribbon is great for wrapping boxes and large presents with.

Ribbon valves are a very time saving invention. You simply attach the ribbon valve into the neck of your latex balloon which then automatically seals the balloon when you inflate it. Ribbon valves come with ribbon attached thus saving lots of time tying balloons. Great for balloon races.

Ultra Hi Float is a liquid plastic solution that is put inside the latex balloon prior to inflation. It dries inside the balloon to form a coating that holds in the helium.
The manufacturer claims that  balloon floating times can be increased by up to 25 times longer than using an untreated helium filled balloon

Balloon Pumps are either manual or electric. The type you would need will depend on how many balloons you were going to inflate and also how often you'd be doing this. For instance, a party venue might do balloon drops every weekend of up to 200 balloons a time so in this case it would be best to buy an electric air blower. For someone using the pump on say birthdays would probably get by with the basic air pump @ £1.99. If you were going to be blowing up larger quantities of balloons and also modelling balloons then I'd recommend the purple hand-pump which is an excellent manual pump and is used by professionals in our industry. If you are unsure which would be best please call us on 020 8906 3302 and we'll do our very best to help.

250 White card printed labels with punched hole. Space on the back to write personal return details. Used for balloon races. Each ballloon that is released into the sky has a race label attached. The idea being that the ballloon that flies the furthest wins. The person who finds the balloon on the ground simply sends it back with his/her address details written on the label and waits to see if they've won! Often used as a fundraising activity where the race label would be bought on the day (like a raffle ticket) and then the balloon would be inflated and released. The person who bought the ticket would win as well as the person who sent it back. The other way is for all the labels to be purchased in advance and the balloons are then released simultaneously.

 

Balloon Nets - holds 500 x 10" or 250 x 12" latex balloons. If you are planning on releasing the balloons into the sky then the balloons have to be helium filled. If you are thinking of dropping the balloons onto say a dancefloor then these balloons would be air filled. The type of net will depend on how many ballloons you are going to inflate. We stock other sizes as well but as balloon drops and balloon releases are not easy to set-up it might be better for you to call us first on 020 8906 3302 and we'd be able to go through all the options with you. The beauty of a balloon drop is becuase the balloons are air filled they can be inflated prior to the day of the event unlike helium filled latex balloons that would be used in a release net and would need to be inflated on the day.

Balloon Weights come in many shapes and sizes. They are used to anchor helium filled latex and foil balloons. The best weights to buy will depend on how many balloons are to be attached to the weight and also the type of balloons (eg 18" foils or shapes or 11" latex) you are thinking of inflating. A tassle weight will hold down up to 10 helium filled11" latex balloons for instance. If you're not sure which weight will work best for what you have in mind please call us on 020 8906 3302 and we'll do our best to answer any questions you have. A simple plastic bangle weight will hold down just one helium filled 11" latex balloon but up to 4 helium filled 18" foil balloons.

Balloon Cups and Sticks are easy to use and offer a great alternative to helium filled balloons. Simply tie a knot in the balloon and secure it to the cup. Then insert the stick. It can be hand held or placed in a centrepiece. The balloons are air filled so they will stay inflated for a long time. Many fast food restaurants give away printed balloons on cups and sticks for this reason as well as the saving in not using helium.
