The questions on everyone’s mind once they become interested in an Inflatable – How much will this cost?
There are a a lot of factors that go into the overall cost of an inflatable advertising balloon. The simplest answer is inflatable pricing is based on three factors – the size, the shape and the amount of artwork.
The overall size will determine the amount of fabric needed to construct or build your inflatable. Obviously the more fabric the more cost, this is a given. But there are a few things many won’t realize. Custom Colors require digital printed fabric which is much more expensive. Any kind of fur or textured material is a second layer on top of our standard 7.5 ounce vinyl coated nylon. Also when sizes are increased often times the material required is exponentially higher than the percentage of increase. Example is a 20’ Hot Air Balloon advertising inflatable more than twice the fabric of 10’ Hot Air balloon inflatable.
The shape may not seem like a big deal but when building an inflatable a shape has a lot do do with the amount of time required by designers and sewers to design and build your inflatable. Some shapes also require internal baffling to create the shape. The more complex the shape, the more time is required so the cost is highly dependent on the shape of your inflatable.
The artwork is also a very large factor in deterring the cost of your inflatable. The more artwork needed will affect what material is used and the process for printing the artwork. Often times art is a simple logo with a few colors. Other times we do a full digital print with graphics covering every inch of the inflatable, there is a big difference between the two.
