The TableTop balloons are 11" (uninflated) and are printed on both sides ready to be held and cheered on at events, or inserted into a vase with flowers to personalize any party arrangement!

You have a choice of optional bases to stand or stick on flat surfaces.

If you plan on using your photo balloon as part of an arrangement, then you may not need a base.

Or, if you want your balloon to stand on a table or other flat surface, you can order the white plastic base.

And if you want to make sure your photo balloon stays in place, you can order the suction cup base to stick to smooth, flat surfaces.

The Helium Ready Mylar photo balloon is 22" (uninflated) and is printed on the front center Hi-Resolution coated printing surface and is shipped to you ready to be filled with helium from your local grocery or party store.

The back of the Helium Ready balloon is silver mylar foil that helps to make the balloon float, and is not printable.

For best results, your image size should be no smaller than 12 inches x 12 inches in diameter at no less than 150dpi (1800 x 1800 pixels minimum).

If you are using a digital photo, it should come from a camera with at least 5 megapixels and set at it's highest resolution settings.

If you are scanning a photo, please scan at no less than 600dpi.

Pictures from social media sites or screenshots from mobile devices are low resolution and may look blurry or pixelated.

Please do not crop your photos as we need plenty of image area to fill the printable space.

We support the following image file formats: .jpg, .png, .eps, .cdr, .ai, .psd .pdf, .tif up to 10mb.

For TableTop balloons, the subject of your image and most of your text should be in the center of the balloon in a 7.25' diameter because the image starts to drop to the sides of the balloon when it is inflated.

For Helium Ready balloons, the image and text can go directly to the outer edge of the design as this balloon does not print to the edge, but in the center of the balloon. When this balloon is inflated, most of the white area drops to the sides of the balloon.

Keep in mind that balloons are round and pictures are rectangular. Anything outside the diameter of the balloon will not be printed.
