Individual latex balloons come in a variety of sizes from 5" (125mm) to 8ft (2.4m) in standard balloon shape. Balloons between 5" and 2ft appear pear shaped, 30" and over are spherical.
5" balloons are not suitable for filling with helium (they only float for a very short while and not at all with string attached).
The most common size of balloon is the 11" (275mm), we only inflate these to 10" on most displays, this gives them a better resistance to popping, an 11" balloon filled to 10" will stay afloat when helium filled for approximately 12 - 18 hours.
These are usually supplied helium filled with a ribbon in a colour of your choosing and a weight, individual balloons are supplied on a plastic weight, groups (bouquets
) are supplied on a fluffy weight. (please click for more information on weights)
. There is a vast range of colours available please see the colour chart
for more information.
Prices for the 11" start at £2.50 per balloon including helium string and weight.
