Large Inflatable FAQ
BIGGER THAN LIFE ● LARGE INFLATABLE PROCESS & INSTALLATION FAQ
HOW DO I GET MY PRODUCT MADE INTO AN INFLATABLE?
Supply us with a product sample, photographs, or drawings to get started. We’ll eventually need art specs, like PMS colors and your artwork and logo. Please refer to the separate section on “Artwork Requirements” for a full listing of the materials required.
HOW MANY DO I HAVE TO BUY?
Large Cold Air Giant Inflatables, Large Hot Air Giant Balloon Shapes, and Helium Inflatables can be ordered in quantities as small as (1) unit. Sealed Inflatables have minimum quantity requirements from 100 to 1000 pieces, depending on the size, shape, and artwork complexity of the product.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY INFLATABLE ADVERTISING BALLOON?
General order time for Large Cold Air Giant Inflatables, Large Hot Air Giant Balloon Shapes, and most Helium Inflatables is six to eight weeks. Rush orders can usually be accommodated. Large inflatables, or projects requiring custom ordered fabrics, may take longer. Sealed Inflatables generally take about 60 to 75 days from the approval of the pre-production sample.
I'M INTERESTED, BUT DON'T KNOW WHAT I WANT. HOW CAN YOU HELP?
No problem. We have in-house design staff that will work with you and your BTL Account Executive to design an inflatable that will work for you and your budget.
HOW DO I APPLY THE GRAPHICS OR PRINTING?
Each type of inflatable requires different artwork applications, including large format digital printing, 4-color process or spot color silk-screen, and fabric appliqués.
WHAT KIND OF POWER SOURCE DO I NEED?
Most Large Cold Air Giant Inflatables operate on typical household current, although some larger Giant inflatables have special power requirements.
Sealed Inflatables can be inflated by mouth, a simple hand pump, or an electric inflator, similar to those used to inflate blow-up beds.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SET UP A GIANT INFLATABLE, AND HOW MANY PEOPLE DOES IT TAKE?
Most Large Cold Air Giant Inflatable designs can be fully installed in 45 minutes or less, depending on the location, with two people. Actual inflation normally takes 15 minutes or less. Sealed Inflatables can normally be inflated in 15 minutes or less, by one person. Installation time for Hot Air Balloon Shapes and Helium Inflatables depend greatly upon the size, design, use and installation venue, but can normally be installed in an hour or less. The number of people required varies from one to a crew of six or more for a large helium parade inflatable.
