 Latex Balloons

 The most popular types of latex balloons include "pastel", "metal", "mother of pearl" and "crystal":

  • "pastel" balloons look made of matte material and come with the broadest palette of colors;
  • "metal" and "mother-of-pearl" can be distinguished through an attractive, metalized, shiny surface;
  • Balloons "crystal" are transparent and feature the most brilliant balls that have saturated colors.

 Pastel balloons are considered to be the most durable. The fact is that metalized, as well as crystal balloons, stretch less than "pastel" balloons, and their lifespan is about a third shorter. On the other hand, the appearance of balloons is severely affected by high temperatures as in hot weather clear balloons "crystal" gradually cloudy "metal" get less shiny, whereas "pastel" remains in its original look the best.

 Latex balloons come in array of sizes. Manufacturers have them measured in inches 5' (12 cm), 9' (22 cm), 12' (30 cm), 14' (35 cm), 16” (40 cm) , 18' (45 cm) and 3' (70-80 cm).

 The smaller balloons of 5" to the smaller 9" balloons are usually used to make garlands, or for decorating (for example, they fill the boxes of surprise). The smaller balloons can't be filled with helium as the helium gas has a short lifespan, and the balloon will quickly go down and deflate.

 The normal size twelve" as well as 14" balloons are the ones most frequently used. They are balls that do not have a pattern or pattern, as well as balls with patterns as well as balls with confetti. The colors are one of the broadest, and balloons are inflated using air and helium (for decoration) and can also be used to create garlands.

 Larger diameter balloons, 16" as well as 18" have a great lifting capacity and allow you to incorporate paper garlands, tassels, and stickers as decorations. For example that 16' (40 cm) balloons are Golden Glitter confetti balloons, and 18' (45 cm) balloons are balloons of a large size with no pattern.

 3' (70-80 cm) meter balloons are the most massive (example). Despite their name, meters balloons are typically inflated to 70-80 centimeters, because otherwise they may not fit inside the doorway and they are more susceptible to external influences and mechanical harm (the more inflated the balloon is, the smaller its wall). The balloons can be opaque and transparent with different kinds of confetti. They are decorated using inscriptions, and garlands and they can be made into huge figures using balloons filled with the gas helium. Examples include the cat, a dog or unicorn, or even a Giraffe.

 Agate Balloons

 Agate balloons have stunning patterns that resemble designs of semi-precious stones. They are created using transparent colorless 12-" latex balloons by using an exclusive technique using acrylic paint. The design is not repeated and is always unique. Don't worry, even if such a balloon does burst, paint won't stain anything around, because we give balloons to dry completely before delivery. Therefore, only our workshop is at risk while balloons are drying =) This is why the balloons must be purchased at least a day before the date of delivery/self-dispatch.

 They are perfect for photoshoots, memorable gifts, or decorating fancy parties. But, due to the advanced technology used in their manufacture that they use, the flight time that balloons can fly Agate balloons is less than 1-3 days on average. And if it's important for you that the balloons fly for a long time, you should probably consider different options.

 Confetti Balloons

 Confetti balloons are a type of transparent latex balloons ("crystal") that are decorated with confetti added by hand. The confetti can be either metallic or paper, in different sizes and shapes or with the same color, or with different colors. Confetti in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors can be combined into one balloon. These balloons are stunning and are perfect for photoshoots, unforgettable decorations, or gifts for celebrations, and are sure to create lots of positive feelings!

 Balloons with confetti tend to travel a bit less than normal balloons because the confetti adds extra volume to the balloon and lowers the lifting capacity. Additionally, like any transparent crystal ball, the process of oxidation is evident most clearly in the confetti balls. With time, the balls become smaller in size, more transparent, and lose their shine (you can learn more about this here). In normal conditions (at normal indoor temperatures), this process is slow, but in the summer months, with the effects of extreme temperatures and exposure to sunlight it speeds up significantly, which is why when it is hot and sunny when the balls are supposed to be used outdoors, be aware that they can quickly become transparent, and you may want to opt with opaque balls if don't want to risk it.

 There are two methods of creating these balloons: hiFloat treatments (so the confetti is evenly distributed on the walls of the balloon and the balloon itself can fly longer than without treatment) as well as without the HiFloat process (then the confetti is located near the base of the balloon and can move freely inside the balloon but the flight time of such balloons can last only about 12 hours).

 Foil Balloons

 Foil balloons usually last longer than latex balloons. They do not require HiFloat treatment as their material does not allow the molecules of helium to escape the balloon. Foil balloons will slowly deflate without losing their attractive look and, if handled with care, they can be re-inflated using air (yourself by using tubes) or helium! Also, foil balloons are perfect for personalizing messages using stickers because on their smooth surface, the sticker is evenly adhered to and can stay on longer.

 The balloons that are oiled without design can take shapes like a star, heart circle, crescent, circle 3D sphere, crystal hand branch, cube, etc. They look great in sets when combined with latex balloons and confetti balloons!

There are many shaped foil balloons with diverse designs in addition to "walking balloons" that are filled with helium, however, they do not soar in the air because of tiny weights invisible to the eye - they start "walking" in their daily lives on the slightest air movement.
