Foil Balloons
18" and larger sized foil balloons have self-sealing valves and do not require the use of a heat sealer.

The inks on foil balloons may run if they come in contact with water.

2-Sided denotes both sides of an 18" foil balloon have the same or complementary design. Foil balloons designated as 1-sided have silver or a solid color on the other side.

Packaged denotes 18" foil balloons are individually pre-packaged.

Measurements and Sizing
Measurements for foil balloons listed under each product number are categories and should be used as a guide for the size. Due to variations in manufacturing processes, actual sizes may vary slightly.

Flat & Preinflated Balloons
2", 4", 5", 9", 12", 13", & 14" air-filled foil balloons ordered flat are not self-sealing and require the use of an electric air inflator and a heat sealer. Cups and sticks are sold separately.

2", 4", 5", 9", 12", 13", & 14" air-filled foil balloons ordered preinflated arrive air-filled with cups and sticks.

Do not put helium in non-valved foil balloons smaller than 18".

High Altitudes
Certain foil balloons cannot float in a high altitude. If you are located at a high altitude, please consider the following:

  1. Balloons that are 21" or larger are more likely to float in high altitudes than 18" balloons.
  2. 18" Balloons that have detailed designs use more inks, which may cause the balloons to be heavier and less likely to float in a high altitude. This is also true for all 2-sided, 18" designs.
  3. 18" round-shaped balloons generally float better than heart, star, or other shaped balloons.
  4. Balloon weights and ribbons attached to balloons contribute to the floating ability.
