We specialize in advertising inflatables. All of our inflatables are custom-made and over the years we have been helping our customers with the following types of inflatables:

PVC sealed advertising inflatable replicas:

Also known as airtight inflatable balloons or custom-made airtight inflatables, are made entirely of PVC material, with all its seams heat sealed tightly. PVC sealed inflatables are ideal for Point-of-Purchase displays (POP), concerts, shows, trade show displays, product replicas, or as models for presentations. These models can either be inflated orally, with the help of a foot pump, or through a turbo electric inflator air pump.

PVC sealed advertising inflatables are available in common shapes like bottles, cans and replicas, and can be made in sizes starting at 18 inches in height.

Key Product Features:

  • No electric fan is required to keep these inflatables inflated during the display.
  • PVC inflatables are ideal in larger quantities, they are easy to store and ship.
  • PVC inflatables can either be hanged from the ceiling or placed on any surface.
  • PVC inflatables are produced in Asia and require at least 6 weeks to be produced.

Cold air advertising inflatables:

These custom-made inflatables are kept inflated with the help of a constantly running air blower. They are extremely reliable and come in a variety of lifelike shapes.

Our cold air advertising inflatables are available in common shapes such as bottles, cans, arches and walking characters. You can get custom-made inflatables in sizes starting from 6 ft. up to 40 ft. and even taller.

What does the term “Cold Air” mean?

Actually “ambient air” would be more accurate, because “cold air” is used to differentiate earth-bound products from “hot air” balloons.


VALMEX® is a unique material for manufacturing high quality advertising inflatable. Several layers of PVC are combined with a Polyester base fabric of high strength 1100 dtex yarn by melt-roller coating. These single layers give flexibility, elasticity, airtightness and resistance against mechanical damage. VALMEX® is abrasion resistant, UV and weather resistant, dirt-repellent and insensitive to high temperature conditions. VALMEX® plus products feature higher resistances to various environmental conditions due to an additional acrylic surface finish, making this material ideal for producing advertising inflatables.

Key Product Features:

  • Crafted using the high-quality PVC, which is durable, wrinkle-resistant and water-repellent.
  • Other components which include a built-in electric motor that works continuously with an electric air blower and an 8-ft. electrical cord, are packaged in one, easy-to-handle, portable case.
  • An LED light unit can be included by request.

To achieve the highest quality artwork on custom-made inflatables, we utilize State-of-the-art, digitally processed 4-Color Printing; Airbrush; and Silk-screen printing.


Helium Spheres

Helium spheres have grown in popularity in the recent years in the advertising inflatable market. We can produce spheres with multiple color imprints. Fill them with helium and send them to the sky to promote your brand, event or location. Our helium spheres are available in 6’, 8’, 10’ and 12’ diameter.

Key Product Features:

  • Our helium filled spheres are constructed from 0.18mm PVC fabric and are manufactured with a UV inhibitor to protect against fading.
  • Helium: Helium tanks often can be rented from welding supply shops listed in Google or Amazon. Different sizes of tanks are available and often can be delivered to and picked up from the event location.

Because the filling and usage of any large display balloon is beyond our control, no performance or longevity guarantee can be made. Balloons should be flown clear of poles, signs, trees, etc., to prevent damage.1
