Custom Inflatable: Balloon Happy Face Balloon
Updated: Oct 22
Inflatable props are a great tool to decorate stages, concerts or events. This particular balloon was made as a prop for J. Balvin who used it for concerts. This is his logo and it is often adapted to different shapes. In this case, it was adapted to a happy face balloon. The balloon supposed to be shaped and resemble a Mylar balloon, but unlike a Mylar balloon, it was inflated with regular cold air. There are a few companies who can make an inflatable float with helium on a big scale but we do not manufacture those types of inflatables.
Instead we make recommendations to have the balloon made out of a solid and heavy duty material while keeping it constantly inflated with a blower system or we recommend that you get a sealed inflatable which keeps an internal layer filled with air and the graphics are a cover that go over the sealed bladder system.
This inflatable needed to have the stretching on the edges to make it look like a real Mylar balloon. We also needed to have it custom printed on a shiny material that would aid in the simulation of Mylar. This was a bit tricky but we were able to do it and it turned out just fine.
This inflatable was a completely custom design that we had to manufacture from scratch. For projects like this we tend to be able to manufacture them with a 2-3 week turnaround time but the event coordinators needed it faster than usual. Overall, it was a new experience for us but we were able to bring this client's vision to life.
