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.

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.

Zoning and Permits for Custom InflatablesAm I Allowed to Use Advertising Inflatables for My Business?

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.

But honestly, how would you know? If you contacted an inflatables company (or they contacted you), how could you determine with a fair amount of certainty that your project would turn out exactly the way you wanted?

"[There was] fun, excitement, and encouragement for everyone to actually walk under/through [the arch] and it worked.  We have cheerleaders and small children at the finish line by the arch handing out stickers, saying ‘I did it.’ Before we had the arch, [people] would straggle in anywhere."
