Balloons – Helium Filled

You can usually hire a helium tank in your local area if you are doing quite a few balloons. Local hardware stores usually have tanks for hire. You can also take our balloons to a reputable outlet to inflate for a fee.

 Small/medium helium tanks are also available online or may be available to purchase locally.

Slightly under-fill the balloon to allow the helium to expand in different temperatures and avoid popping. Attach to string and weights. Latex balloons filled with helium typically float for 6 to 12 hours.

To keep your latex balloons looking fresher for longer, especially in the outdoors we like to use a hi-shine balloon spray.  

When filling a balloon with helium, slightly under-fill to allow expansion in different temperatures to avoid popping.

Foil Balloons

Insert pump nozzle into the balloon valve, the pressure from the pump will automatically open the valve as you inflate it. Be careful not to overfill as it will pop, so go slowly at the end of filling. Most foil balloons are self sealing, so just remove the nozzle/straw from the balloon and press the valve flat to seal. 

You can always use sticky tape over the valve to do an extra seal. Keep the valve as flat as possible to prevent air escaping. So don't tie string over it.

Foil Orbz Balls

Insert your pump nozzle into the valve, the pressure from the pump will automatically open the valve as you inflate it. Fill until it is completely round and there are no creases on the seams. Be careful not to overfill as it will pop, so go slowly at the end of filling. When filling the  foil ball balloons it is normal when inflating to hear a popping sound as the balloon expands it’s panels to form a round ball. Foil balloons are self sealing, so just press the valve flat to seal. Tip: You can always use sticky tape over the valve to do an extra seal. Keep the valve as flat as possible to prevent air escaping. So don't tie string over it, but tie further down under the valve.

Foil balloons are long lasting and can be refilled or packed away for later use.

Confetti Balloons

If filling with helium, fill a small amount with air, then rub the balloon with a cloth, wool or your head to make the confetti stick. We also like to use a Hi float gel product which is even better. This makes the balloon float longer and the confetti stick really nicely. Just ask your inflation store about it.

Balloons in nature are fragile. We use the highest quality balloons available on the market by leading brands, however please use great care when inflating. If you are concerned please order extra balloons for your event if you are concerned about popping. We do not offer refunds on balloons.

Balloon Storage

Latex balloons generally have a shelf life of up to 1 year. The best way is to store your balloons in a dry air tight container or zip-lock storage bag. Keep them in a cool, dry place out of the sun light. A cool drawer or basement. 

Warning

Balloons are not toys and pose a choking hazard to children. Children should not be around balloons (inflated or deflated) without adult supervision.
