picture on a balloon

I was wondering if you can put a picture on a balloon? It will be for a 'get well soon' event.


ANSWER:

Hi Jeff,

Yes, you can have a photo printed onto either a latex or a mylar balloon.

The easiest way is to have your photo balloons done by one of the specialized companies, for example balloonprinting.com. But they require a minimum order size (mostly around 25 balloons) and so it can become quite costly, if you only wanted a single balloon.

As an alternative, you can print the photo yourself onto a special mylar balloon. This works only if you have a top-feeding inkjet printer.

The video below shows how to do this...



Hope that helps,
Margit
