We offer professional personalised custom printed helium quality 11” latex balloons printed with state of the art silk screen printing techniques to give your balloons a clear, sharp image. We can colour match the printing ink to any PMS colour and have a wide range of balloon colours.
Balloons are able to be printed for all occasions. Birthdays, weddings, right through to large corporate promotions. If you want to get your logo or message out there, then printed balloons are a fun, exciting and economical way to do just that.
One Colour Artwork and Greyscale
One colour artwork can be printed on 1 to 4 sides of the balloons (minimum order of 250 for 3 or 4 sides). Contrasting colour balloons create a great effect for emphasising your image or logo.
Two Colour Artwork
Avoid using 2 colour artwork where the colours overlap due to the fact that balloons are a moving substrate, print registration can not be guaranteed. A 3-5mm gap between colours is recommended.
Overlapping colours may be possible where the foreground image is floating independently of the background, depending on the artwork and ink colours used. 2 colour artwork can be printed on 1-4 sides of the balloon
One Colour and Greyscale Stipple Artwork
Photographs and gradients can be printed in one colour using a stipple effect, which uses dots of varying sizes to show the graduation of shading in an image.
Unless advised otherwise we will always print your image as large as possible on the balloons. Our printable area is limited to fit inside a 13cm diameter and centred. If your artwork is wide and narrow it will not show that well on the balloon, so take advantage of the whole print area.
