Types of balloons which you can buy
The principal types of latex balloons are “pastel”, “metal”, “pearl” and “crystal”:
“pastel” balloons look matte and offer the largest color palette;
“metal” and “pearl” distinguish themselves by an attractive, metalized, shiny surface;
Balloons “crystal” are translucent and feature the most brilliant balls with saturated colors.
Pastel balloons are regarded as the most durable. The fact is that metalized as well as crystal balloons, have less stretch than “pastel” balloons and their lifespan is a third shorter. However, they appear more attractive. is greatly affected by temperatures above a certain point during hot weather. transparent balloons “crystal” gradually cloudy “metal” and less shiny, whereas “pastel” keeps its original form and appearance.
Latex balloons are available in array of sizes. Manufacturers have them measured in inches 5′ (12 cm), 9′ (22 cm), 13” https://balloons.online/balloon-sizes/13-inch-balloons/, 14′ (35 cm), 16′ (40 cm), 18′ (45 cm) and 3′ (70-80 cm).
The smaller 5″ or 9″ balloons are used primarily to create garlands and also for decoration (for example, they are used to fill boxes of surprises). Small balloons can’t be filled with helium, because it has a short life span and the balloon can quickly deflate and then deflate.
The typical dimensions of 12-” and fourteen” balloons are commonly used – these are balls without patterns or pattern, as well as balls with patterns and balls that have confetti. The color palette is the largest, and the balloons can be filled with both helium and air (for decorative purposes) and could also be used to create garlands.
Larger diameter balloons of 16″ and 18″ are incredibly powerful in lifting, which allows you to use paper garlands, tassels, and stickers as decorations. A good example from 16′ (40 cm) balloons: Golden Glitter confetti balloons and 18′ (45 cm) balloons are big balloons that have no pattern.
3′ (70-80 millimeters) meter balloons are the biggest (example). Despite their name, meter balloons are usually inflated to 70-80 centimeters, because otherwise, they will not be able to fit in the doorway, and are more vulnerable to various external forces and mechanical damages (the higher the inflation of the balloon the fewer walls). These balloons are opaque and transparent with different types of confetti. They can be decorated with inscriptions, and garlands, and also upon their foundations are created big figures out of balloons using Helium, such as cats, dogs or unicorns, or even an elephant, or a giraffe.
Agate balloons have incredible patterns that are similar to the patterns of semi-precious stones. They are handmade from transparent colorless twelve” latex balloons that are made by a special technique with acrylic paint. The design is not repeated and is always unique. Don’t worry, even if a balloon explodes, the paint will not stain everything around, since we provide balloons to dry completely before delivery. So only our workshops are in danger while balloons are drying =) This is why the balloons need to be ordered at least one day before delivery or self shipping.
They’re great to use for photoshoots and memorable gifts, or for decorating fancy parties. However, because of the technology of manufacture that they use, the flight time for Agate balloons is a mere three days on average. And if you need to have the balloons remain in the air for a long time, you should probably be looking at different alternatives.
Confetti balloons are one of the types of transparent latex balloons (“crystal”) that are decorated with confetti added by hand. The confetti can be either paper or metallic, in different shapes and sizes as well as with the same color or in a variety of shades. Confetti in a variety of sizes, colors, and shapes can be mixed into one balloon. Such balloons are spectacular and perfect for photo sessions, memorable presents, or decorating celebrations, and are sure to bring many positive emotions!
Balloons with confetti typically fly a little smaller than regular balloons as the confetti adds extra pounds to the balloon and reduces the power of its lift. Additionally, like all transparent crystals that undergo latex oxidation is most obvious on the confetti ball: over time, the balls get less transparent, cloudy, and lose their luster (you can read more about why this happens here). Under normal conditions (at normal indoor temperature) the process isn’t too slow, but in summer, under the pressure of high temperatures, and the exposure to sunlight it accelerates considerably, and so during the summer heat and especially if the balloons are supposed to be outdoor, you must be aware that they can quickly lose their transparency, and you may want to opt for opaque balloons if aren’t willing to take the risk.
There are two methods to make these balloons: using HiFloat treatment (so the confetti is evenly distributed over its walls within the balloon, and the balloon itself can fly for longer than without treatment) as well as without HiFloat treatment (then the confetti will be placed in the middle of the balloon and can move freely inside the balloon however the flight of these balloons is only for about 12 hours).
Foil balloons typically last longer than latex balloons and don’t require treatment with HiFloat because their materials do not permit helium molecules to quickly leave the balloon. Foil balloons gradually deflate but they do not lose their appealing appearance when used properly they can be inflated again with air (yourself using a tube) or helium! Additionally, foil balloons are perfect for personalizing messages by using stickers. This is because on their smooth surface the sticker is evenly adhered and stays on it longer.
The balloons that are oiled without design can take the shape of a heart, star or circle, crescent, 3D spheres, crystals, hand branches, cube, and so on. They look fantastic in sets combined with confetti and latex balloons!
There are many different designed foil balloons in different designs in addition to “walking balloons” which contain helium but they do not ascend in the air due to small invisible weights – they begin “walking” while living life with any air movement.
