Why personalised confetti balloons cost what they do.

You may love our personalised balloons and would like to send one to a friend or relation, but wonder why they cost what they do.

 

Most of the materials used are pretty inexpensive, it’s just a balloon after all, right?

 

Well, yes and no. Most of the costs involved of an item like a personalised balloon comes from the time taken to design and make the product.

 

The individual materials used may not cost too much individually however it takes time to create the beautiful balloon that you receive in the post. Each balloon that we make will take around ¾ hour to design, build, finish, pack and post.

 

The balloons are filled with confetti, feathers or mini balloons. Then we use software to create the personalised message for the front of the balloon, this takes a bit of time as we always try to choose a font that is best suited for each individual balloon.

 

The next step is the handmade tail, each tail is bespoke to the occasion so selecting the right design is important and takes time. We hand cut the special vellum craft paper that we use and then the shapes are stitched on a sewing machine.

 

The balloon is then inflated and tied, the personalisation is applied (this is a delicate procedure and requires a steady hand!) We then dress the balloon with the tail and ribbon and it is ready for packing.

 

The balloons are quality checked before being packed into a large tissue lined, confetti sprinkled gift box.

 

All our balloons are made the day before the requested delivery date this ensures they are as “fresh” as they can be for the recipient.  Because of this we ship the balloons using Royal Mail next day delivery.

 

In addition to the actual time and cost of making the actual balloon, you also have to consider the time it takes us to design and create new products, we are always dreaming up new creative product ideas and keeping an eye on current and future trends to ensure that we offer our customers the very best in contemporary balloon decor and design. Throw in a few external training courses and you can see how the costs begin to add up!

 

We love what we do and we firmly belive that our gift ballons are worth every penny. Sending a beautifully crafted, personalised balloon to a friend or family member in the post is guaranteed to deliver a smile :)
