Re: Ordering from BalloonsUnited

They definitely seem to be the best looner reseller in recent years - they have a large selection, fair prices, ship discreetly and internationally, and have good service - in my last order I had a...

Re: No imprint area and matching seams?

Maybe it has to do with how the edges of the panels overlap slightly to form the seams?

Re: Balloon size, microwave vs baking.

Why not try it?

I've experimented a bit with baking (partially) inflated balloons as opposed to regular balloons, and almost the second you put them into the oven, they begin stretching and...

Re: Rubberized Inflatables

Yeah, the results are really nice. Just be careful not to overinflate it too much, the vinyl is soft and stretchier but will still tear at the seams if you push it.

Could you post a picture of it?...

Re: wasn't that bad

When the latex is stretched out by being inflated for several days, it tends to be less violent when it pops, making less noise and usually leaving a few large shards rather than tiny bits of...

Re: LoonQuest 2 (new game)

For future reference, the best bet for running Windows programs on Linux/Mac is usually WINE, which can be downloaded here (https://wiki.winehq.org/Download).

Re: Rubberized Inflatables

It usually only messes with the colors if they're printed on the inside: if the vinyl itself is dyed, that's fine, but the ATBC will strip the prints off if they're printed at the surface.

Re: Selling My Inflatable Collection

Unfortunately I'm not in a position to buy anything right now, but if you don't mind me asking, why are you selling them all?

Re: How many of you are scared of balloons popping?

I'm a semi-popper, but started out as a non-popper. One thing that helped me get over my fear of unintentionally popping balloons early on was to blow up a balloon to the most I was comfortable with,...

Re: Balloon Brands

My favorite balloons are Cattex/Rifco GL500s/GL700s/GL1200s, and Cattex 32" longnecks. They're durable, yet still stretchy and bouncy even beyond rated size, and particularly with the longnecks, it's...

Re: Reliable Balloon Sources

They're on the list, that's Balloon World Store, formerly known as Rifco. They make some great balloons, but I've always ordered through resellers.

Re: Sitting on balloons

Seconding Cattex 32" longnecks, they're generally just awesome balloons for everything.

Re: Electric pump nozzle adapters for large balloons

That might be why, in my experience Cura tends to overextrude a bit by default. Could also be differences in the printer itself I suppose, I have an original Printrbot Simple Metal.

Re: Electric pump nozzle adapters for large balloons

Which slicer do you use? Some (simplify 3d for example) use a pretty low flow rate, which leads to gaps.

Re: Electric pump nozzle adapters for large balloons

Just a warning, 3D printing usually results in porous and hollow parts. Unless you have direct access to a printer that you can choose the settings for, you're likely to end up with a part that isn't...

Re: Cattex or rifco

They're both high quality brands; I'd just buy whichever one is offering the specific colors you want (Cattex are usually just solid colors or clear, while Rifco also offers crystal colors)

Re: Reliable Balloon Sources

Ah, the site had been down for me for a couple days earlier, and following the low stock and 15% off everything sale, I figured they were closing. I'll add it back to the list.

It looks like KBI has shut down, so I've removed them from the list.

Re: How long do GL500's last?

I have a GL500 from 2013 that I still blow up occasionally. It inflates unevenly and bulges weirdly at this point, but it hasn't popped yet!

Re: Balloons that you want but can't have

Try baking some clear ones. Preheat your oven to 290F bake some brand new clear balloons once it's heated for 5-15 minutes, depending on how soft they usually are already (e.g. lower times for...

Re: Balloon durability

Cattex are definitely some of the strongest balloons in my experience. They don't get quite as tight as Qualatex ones, but they can take a ton of abuse even when overinflated.

Re: Will a sa24 hold me

It depends on how inflated it is and how much you weigh. I had one and was able to bounce on it without popping it as long as I didn't overinflate it, but I'm very light. (Eventually I popped it...

Re: how do you neck balloons??

Could you post a picture if you have one? I've been curious about the Q36 for a while but they're not cheap.
