Get them to get in touch with the local paper, if they explain to them the impact a balloon race/release has in a photo-shoot, and as well as that the monies it raises for the school it will help to make their local community aware of the fundraising efforts and will raise the image of the school. A balloon release is an event people will want to watch.

Give Your Customers Some Tips.


* Set the Date for The Balloon Release
First decide the date of the balloon release – give yourself plenty of time to organise – promote and sell tickets etc
* Place your order for the balloons – balloon release nets
Make sure you have ordered the necessary balloons from us – and balloon nets and if applicable the – the balloon race tickets – and helium balloon gas – or we can do all that at the store – ring 0123456789
* Organise Prizes
Agree the number and types of prizes to be given to the winning entrants and commence purchasing etc
* Sell The Balloon Race Tickets
Get as many persons as you can out there selling the balloon race & release tickets being sure that reliable records are kept.
* Press Release Media Attention
Organise press releases and media attention. This is especially important if the purpose of the event is as part of a fund raising exercise.
* Inflate the Balloons & Attach Balloon Race Tickets
On the day of the event – inflate your balloons and attach the balloon race labels. The nearer you do this to the time of the balloon event the further the balloons will travel. Don’t start too early and never blow up the balloons prior to the balloon release day. Helium filled balloons will after 22 hours – deflate- lose their gas – and of course once released into the sky – they will stay inflated for longer.
* Place all balloons in the balloon release nets.
Do not be fooled into thinking that you don’t need a Balloon Release Net – a Balloon Release Net will ensure that the balloons are kept together securely until the balloons are ready to be real eased.


Tell your customers all this.


Balloon Launch
Some balloon races and releases are organised using the idea that leading up to the day of the balloon release from the balloon net – tickets can be sold the tickets can be printed with the name and address of the school or organisation or corporate entity etc.

On the day of the release / race the labels are attached to the helium filled balloons which, at a given time are released from the balloon net. Each balloon label has a request that the finder should post it back to the School/Address. Prizes are given to the person whose label is returned from the furthest point. Many labels are returned from Europe.

Ask one of our trainers at PartyStore Systems to understand the three most important “musts” for organising a successful balloon release. One – everything must come together on the day. Two – it must be SAFE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY and finally, it must be appealing and profitable. We will assist you to handle your order.

* Use only bio-degradable latex balloons and hand tie them * Use any foil or non-latex balloons
* All balloons must be filled with Helium. Helium balloons are lighter than air and rise naturally – the gas expands causing the balloon to burst into tiny fragments hastening the decomposition process. * Attach ribbons, valves or string to the balloons being released as they or often non-biodegradable and can endanger wildlife.
* Ensure that all balloons sold near the balloon release site are weighted and can't escape. * Release any balloons that are larger than 12 inches
