A lot of people do not realize how important it is to have high quality balloons when ordering printed balloons, or non printed. A lot of factors go into which balloon you chose. For instance if you are going to have a balloon drop that balloon life probably isn't your most important factor. If you are going to be hosting a outside party in the sun, a cheep balloon will stretch and pop quicker than you can get them up. If money is not a issue its always recommended to do the best quality possible.
A trending issue today with online businesses is you can not physically see the balloon before you order it. You can see a picture (which is usually Photoshoped) but you do not get to see them in person. Many companies take advantage of this fact and will get the cheapest balloon available to increase their profit. But now you are going to know what to look for and how to make sure the company you order from is going to supply you with good quality balloons.
The purpose if this article is not to make you think you need the Rolls-Royce of balloons. Sometimes a well built Ford will work just fine. The purpose if this article is to make sure you don't get the run down beat up that will last you just long enough to get off the lot.
I have composed a top 5 list of lated balloon manufactures that you can use to make sure that you get good quality
1 - Qualitex
2 - CTI
3 - Betalletex
4 - Pioneer Balloon Company
5 - BSA
When ordering printed balloons be sure to ask what brand that they use. If they use another brand many companies will print on the brand that you want for a fee of the difference in their cost. I would recommend your printed balloons to be with one of the top 3 that I listed, or if you want you can go with Pioneer that quality will still be decent.
Another note to realize is Qualitex is the Rolls-Royce and they cost a lot more than other brands. White the quality difference is substantially greater, its not always needed for a good quality balloon.
When ordering your printed balloons, be sure to do your research to ensure you get the best bang for your buck.
