How To Order
Here at The Balloon Printing Company, we have a team with many years experience between us, so we aim to make ordering your printed balloons as easy as possible. You can contact us via any of the means on the contacts page, with any questions or quotes you can’t see the price of, or are unsure about.
At the bottom of this page, we have devised a small checklist, which you are welcome to copy and paste to use when contacting us, there are also a few guidelines if you are unsure on anything.
After initial contact from you, we can use your own design, or we offer a basic design service free of charge, we are happy to edit this until you are happy to approve the artwork, at which point we are ready to print the balloons. At this point we take a payment from you for your order. We are able to accept all major debit and credit cards, cheques, BACS / Bank Transfers and online payments via Paypal.
Once artwork approval has been received and payment cleared, we aim to print all orders within five working days, and will give a more accurate turnaround time at time of order. Once printed we send out your printed balloons on the selected service, standard delivery takes 2-5 working days, the express delivery is a next working day service. All services will require a signature on delivery. We cannot be held responsible for delays after the parcel has left our depot. A tracking number is available on all packages on request.
Need something a bit faster than the above service, we do at times have a quick express service available, at a cost of +25% of the order cost. From artwork approval/payment cleared we then print your balloons within 1-2 working days and send on a next working delivery. Please check we are able to fit you in before ordering.
Any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us if we have not covered anything.

Notes for Ordering.
1: If you have a design already, please email it to email@example.com - If you would like to take advantage of a free basic design service, please tell us any text, logos, cartoon images etc you wish to have on your printed balloons.
2: How many printed balloons in total you would like, this doesn’t have to be a figure on our price list, this is there for a guide. Our minimum order is 50.
3: We can print on a single side(1), which is the lowest priced option, or we can print the same design on both sides of a balloon(2), or we can print one design on one side, and a different logo on the other side.(2 different sides)
4: Neck down is usually used for helium fill, or with balloon cups and sticks. Neck up is for air fill, tied with ribbon and dangled.
5: What balloon colours you wish to have, this can be more than one colour if required, or a random assortment of colours. Below is our colour chart available
6: What ink colour you wish to have printed on your balloons, we will try and match this as close to what you require, but please remember inks can dry a slightly different shade to what they appear when we mix these for you. You can use more than one ink if required, although we can just use one ink colour per design. If you did want half of your balloons, for example, red with white ink, and the other half red with black ink, there would be one ink change charge as per the price list.
7: Anything other than your printed balloons, this includes plain balloons, balloon cups and sticks, balloon valves, balloon ribbon, balloon inflators and balloon pumps, or anything else you may require.
8: Date required by, it is worth considering the standard print service and standard delivery service can take as long as 10 working days, although we will always advise if we cannot meet your deadline, and also on order will be able to give you a better idea when you may expect your balloons.
9: Any other details you wish to add.
