Basic Frequently Asked Questions about Advertising Inflatables

Q: What is a cold-air inflatable?

A: Custom inflatables that are labeled cold-air require a blower system (fan) to keep them upright. Cold-air inflatables include sports tunnels, large product replicas, mascots, rooftop inflatables, etc. Cold-air inflatables do not “fly” or float in the air like helium-filled inflatables.

Q. I’m looking to rent an inflatable (fill-in-the-blank) – can Landmark help me?

A. Sorry, but no. We do not rent inflatables, each of our structures are custom manufactured for purchase only. We do not have anything in-stock as everything is made to order with your specific needs in mind. We think it’s better that way!

Zoning Regulations (Pulling Permits) for Inflatables

Zoning and Permits for Custom Inflatables

How To Pull City Permits for Advertising Inflatables

The zoning of inflatable outdoor advertising falls to each, individual city.  That, in and of itself, should be enough to tell you this is a complicated issue. Policies for using inflatables oftentimes fall under the city’s sign ordinance. Oftentimes policies are ambiguous, referring to inflatables as “ambient” balloons or devices, which could apply to either helium or cold-air inflatables. Other cities are more specific.

Just as the definition of inflatables is confusing, actual regulations can be just as frustrating to comprehend. So what is a business to do? Here is some information we've gathered over the years from a variety of sources. This information does not equate to suggestions from Landmark Creations, but is rather a list of facts and opinions for you to take under consideration when researching the zoning regulations in your town.

Preparing Art for Custom Inflatables

Posted in Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How To Send Us Your Art

Before building your inflatable, we will need certain types of artwork from you. This might include logos, graphics or other images.

You can usually get these files from your company's design department, design house or ad agency. Note: If the art is to be used as part of an inflatable product, it must be the "flat artwork." (Your graphics person will understand that term.) We cannot use a photograph of the three-dimensional product itself. Instead, you should send the art that was used to create the product's packaging.

Custom Pricing for Custom Inflatables

Custom Inflatable Prices

Why aren't there any prices listed on your site?

Because we create custom inflatables we have no set price list. Each project is quoted based on your precise specifications.  As you might expect, a 6-foot sealed inflatable sphere with a simple design will cost significantly less than a 30-foot tall product replica.

Depending on the type and size, custom inflatables from Landmark Creations can run between $500 and $25,000.  Every aspect of your project is considered so you get the perfect size for your event(s) along with exacting detail in the design and production of your balloon. What's more, the use of premium materials guarantees true value that performs well for years to come. The results are obvious the first time your inflatable goes public: crowds look, people gather and cameras begin to click. That's the Landmark advantage.
