Before building your inflatable, we will need certain types of artwork from you. This might include logos, graphics or other images.

You can usually get these files from your company’s design department, design house or ad agency. Note: If the art is to be used as part of an inflatable product, it must be the “flat artwork.” (Your graphics person will understand that term.) We cannot use a photograph of the three-dimensional product itself. Instead, you should send the art that was used to create the product’s packaging.

You can download our artwork spec sheet from the following link.


If possible, supply a color correct hard copy of your final layout, including call-outs for critical Pantone swatch colors. Under normal circumstances, artwork must be provided 3 to 4 weeks prior to the shipment of your inflatable.

Inflatable construction will begin once we have your final approval of the design.

  1. Cold/Constant Air Inflatables: These inflatables require a continuous flow of air from a blower or fan to stay inflated. Mr. Inflatables offers a range of cold air inflatables such as slides, obstacle courses, interactive games, and advertising products that rely on constant airflow to maintain their shape and structural integrity.

  2. Sealed Inflatables: Sealed inflatables are airtight structures that do not require continuous airflow to stay inflated. Once inflated, they are sealed shut, trapping the air inside. Mr. Inflatables may also provide sealed units like bounce houses, inflatable characters, and custom-designed inflatables that remain inflated without the need for a blower or fan running constantly.

By offering both types of inflatables, Mr Inflatables caters to a wide range of needs and preferences, providing clients with versatile options for events, promotions, and entertainment. Whether customers require the convenience of sealed inflatables or the dynamic presence of cold/constant air inflatables, Mr Inflatables delivers high-quality products and services to meet their inflatable entertainment needs.

Custom inflatables are crafted through a meticulous process that involves several stages, each overseen by experts like those at Mr Inflatables. Here’s a breakdown of how they’re made:

  1. Concept and Design: The process begins with conceptualization and design. Clients work closely with Mr. Inflatables’ design team to outline their vision, incorporating branding elements, themes, and specifications.

  2. Digital Rendering: Design concepts are translated into digital renderings using specialized software. These renderings provide a visual representation of the inflatable from different angles and perspectives, allowing for revisions and adjustments as needed.

  3. Material Selection: High-quality materials are crucial for durability and performance. Mr. Inflatables selects materials such as PVC or vinyl, known for their strength, flexibility, and resistance to wear and tear.

  4. Pattern Creation: Once the design is finalized, patterns are created based on the digital renderings. These patterns serve as templates for cutting and assembling the inflatable components.

  5. Cutting and Sewing: The selected materials are cut according to the patterns and expertly sewn together by skilled craftsmen. Precision is key to ensuring proper alignment and seam strength.

  6. Printing and Branding: Custom graphics, logos, and branding elements are applied to the inflatable using advanced printing techniques. Mr. Inflatables utilizes state-of-the-art printing technology to achieve vibrant colors and crisp details.

  7. Assembly and Reinforcement: The various components of the inflatable are assembled and reinforced to enhance structural integrity. Critical stress points and seams undergo additional reinforcement to withstand repeated use and environmental factors.

  8. Quality Assurance: Before completion, each inflatable undergoes rigorous quality assurance checks to ensure adherence to design specifications, durability, and safety standards. Any imperfections are addressed promptly to uphold Mr. Inflatables’ commitment to excellence.

  9. Packaging and Delivery: Once approved, the custom inflatable is carefully packaged and prepared for delivery to the client. Mr. Inflatables coordinates logistics to ensure timely delivery, providing clients with peace of mind and a seamless experience from start to finish.

Through meticulous attention to detail and expertise at every stage, Mr Inflatables delivers custom inflatables that exceed expectations in quality, craftsmanship, and visual impact. Their dedication to excellence ensures that each inflatable is a unique and captivating addition to any event or promotion.

Inflatables come in various types, two of which are sealed inflatables and cold/constant air inflatables. The need for constant airflow largely depends on the type of inflatable.

Sealed inflatables, as the name suggests, do not require constant airflow to stay inflated. These inflatables are typically made of airtight materials, such as PVC or vinyl, and are sealed shut once they are fully inflated. The air inside remains trapped, keeping the inflatable firm and inflated. This design eliminates the need for continuous airflow, making sealed inflatables ideal for static structures like bounce houses or advertising balloons.

On the other hand, cold/constant air inflatables do require a continuous flow of air to remain inflated. These inflatables feature a blower or fan that continuously pumps air into the structure to maintain its shape and firmness. Unlike sealed inflatables, the air in cold/constant air inflatables is not trapped, so it needs to be replenished constantly to prevent deflation. Cold/constant air inflatables are commonly used for large structures like inflatable slides, obstacle courses, or inflatable arches.

In both cases, the materials used in the construction of the inflatables play a crucial role in maintaining inflation. Sealed inflatables rely on airtight seams and durable materials to keep the air trapped inside, while cold/constant air inflatables depend on a steady flow of air from a blower or fan to stay inflated. Each type has its advantages and applications, depending on the specific needs of the inflatable structure and its intended use.

Yes, you can certainly hang a custom inflatable from the ceiling at a trade show, exhibition, or any other event venue where such installations are allowed. Hanging inflatables can be an eye-catching way to draw attention to your booth or display area.

Here are some key considerations when hanging a custom inflatable from the ceiling:

  1. Permission and Regulations: Check with the event organizers or venue management to ensure that hanging inflatables is permitted. Some venues may have restrictions or regulations regarding hanging objects from the ceiling for safety or aesthetic reasons.

  2. Ceiling Structure: Assess the ceiling structure to determine if it can support the weight of the inflatable. You may need to consult with venue staff or hire a professional rigger to ensure that the installation is safe and secure.

  3. Installation Method: Determine the best method for hanging the inflatable based on the ceiling structure and the design of the inflatable itself. Options may include using cables, wires, rigging hardware, or specialized hanging systems.

  4. Safety Precautions: Prioritize safety when installing the inflatable. Ensure that it is securely anchored to prevent it from falling or becoming a hazard to attendees. Follow all safety guidelines and regulations, and consider hiring experienced professionals if needed.

  5. Visibility and Impact: Position the inflatable strategically to maximize visibility and impact. Consider factors such as sightlines, lighting, and traffic flow within the venue to ensure that the inflatable effectively attracts attention to your booth or display.

By considering these factors and planning carefully, you can successfully hang a custom inflatable from the ceiling to enhance your presence at trade shows, exhibitions, and other events.

If ground stakes are not an option for securing your inflatable, there are several alternatives you can consider depending on the specific circumstances of your location:

  1. Weights or Sandbags: Use weights or sandbags to anchor the inflatable in place. These can be placed on top of the inflatable’s base or attached to tether points to provide stability. Ensure that the weights are heavy enough to counteract wind or other forces that may cause the inflatable to move.

  2. Water Barrels: Water barrels can serve as effective anchors for larger inflatables. Fill the barrels with water and place them strategically around the inflatable to keep it securely in place. Be sure to use sturdy barrels and secure them tightly to prevent any movement.

  3. Tie-Downs or Straps: Use tie-downs or straps to secure the inflatable to nearby structures, such as poles, fences, or buildings. Make sure to use strong and durable materials that can withstand the forces exerted on the inflatable.

  4. Concrete Blocks or Ballasts: Concrete blocks or ballasts can provide a stable base for securing the inflatable. Place them strategically around the inflatable’s perimeter or attach them directly to tether points to prevent movement.

  5. Specialized Anchoring Systems: Explore specialized anchoring systems designed for situations where ground stakes are not feasible. These may include ground anchors that can be attached to surfaces like asphalt or concrete, or alternative anchoring solutions specifically designed for inflatables.

Before implementing any anchoring method, thoroughly assess the location and consider factors such as wind conditions, the size and weight of the inflatable, and any potential obstacles or hazards. Additionally, always prioritize safety and follow manufacturer recommendations for securing your inflatable.
