Production & Design

“Your design department did a tremendous job creating a three-dimensional shape from our client’s one-dimensional logo. Thanks for the great work and completing the project on time!” Jennifer Thompson, Pulse Media

Boulder Blimp Company has developed an efficient system to ensure a smooth path in designing and producing giant inflatables. Operated by some of the best technicians and artisans in the industry, our end goal is to produce an inflatable to your exact specifications. All our products are built to last for years, making the purchase of a Boulder Blimp Company inflatable a very cost-effective investment.

Our customer-oriented sales department assists thousands of clients through the production process. Skilled in pinpointing your needs in terms of design, and handling, our sales staff will prepare a price quote and a computer-generated sketch for your approval. Our sales team believes in maintaining strong communication with our clients, and is readily available to answer any question or concern, whether you are considering an inflatable, or are a continuous customer of Boulder Blimp Company.

Boulder Blimp Company delivers quick turnaround on your inflatable from the receipt of order, deposit, and artwork. Our standard term is 50 percent deposit upon placement of order, and the balance due prior to shipment. Your salesperson will follow up with you one week before the inflatable’s completion to confirm shipping instructions and final payment.

Corporate dollars and co-sponsorships might be available to your company when considering an inflatable. Often suppliers or cooperative advertisers wish to help sponsor or fund the investment for promotional purposes. More than one logo can easily be accommodated on your inflatable.

Walk through the process…


All Boulder Blimp Company inflatables begin their production process under the scrutiny of our designer. Our sketch artist first develops a preliminary design for our customers. (Sketches can be quickly emailed in color for client changes in a matter of hours). Once the sketches are approved, a three-dimensional computer program is used to generate a proportional design.

Our software and inflatable-specific technology make it easy to modify or improve designs so that they result in lifelike models of products and characters. The computer model is then converted into accurately engineered flat pattern pieces that can be scaled to any size.


The pattern pieces are sent to a state-of-the-art, computer-controlled cutting table. The computer precisely marks and cuts the patterns.

This exacting and meticulous process ensures a lifelike replica of the approved model. The computer stores these patterns so that inflatable duplicates can easily be processed.


Our sewers are highly skilled, specially trained in sewing inflatable products, and have many years of industrial sewing experience. We stitch every seam using a heavy-duty, coated, UV-resistant, polyester thread.

Seams requiring added strength are reinforced with nylon webbing. This detailed attention results in incredibly durable, precisely aligned, smooth and well-constructed promotional inflatables.

Quality Control

Every Boulder Blimp Company inflatable is test-inflated and inspected before it is shipped to the customer. When you receive your inflatable, it will arrive with all necessary componentry for instant inflation.
