What to know about Vinyl BalloonsNicole Rizzo
There are regular balloons, then there are vinyl balloons. Regular balloons are something you buy, use once, then toss in the trash. Vinyl balloons are a product you buy for the long haul and with the right care, they can be used over and over again. If you regularly plan parties, stage get togethers or events, plan marketing, or otherwise have a need for sturdy balloons, here’s what you should know about the vinyl ones.
What are vinyl balloons?
Vinyl balloons are a special type of balloon made from a mixture of PVC and vinyl. They are very durable and extra strong, and can last a long time in a space. They are much more firm than your standard latex balloon and don’t require helium for inflation like their latex counterparts.
How long do they last?
How long your vinyl balloons last will be entirely depending on how you use them. Balloons decorating an outdoor space and subject to harsh weather might last for less time than balloons used indoors. Manufacturers guarantee the balloons for a period of 90 days, but they can last much longer than that if well taken care of.
Where can I use vinyl balloons?
Basically you can use vinyl balloons anywhere that you would consider using regular balloons for marketing or events. It’s probably smarter to use the helium-filled latex kind for quick parties. But for open houses, grand openings, attention grabbing, visual markers and more, sturdy vinyl balloons are a great choice.
Where can I buy them?
Vinyl balloons are widely available from party supply retailers you would normally buy latex balloons. You can also search online for retailers that are close to you. In a pinch, there are plenty of places online where you can order them, but you won’t have the advantage of seeing the product and colors in person before you buy.
