Default Re: Are certain balloon finishes bigger than other finishes?
I don't know if it's all in the head, but back when I still got multicolored bags of Q16 jewels the yellows, reds and clears seemed to get a lot bouncier and larger on subsequent inflations than the others. Jewels as a whole did seem sturdier under abuse than the solid colors or metallics.

Nowaways I pretty much only use Q18 clear stuffers regularly, the rest are just for special occasions.

The simple answer is, yes! Whilst modern balloon manufacturing processes should mean that all balloons of the same size, should get to the same infalted size, regardless of their colour, the fact is that there are lots of potential for things to affect their size: the thickness of the latex, the amount of colour added (and sometimes even which coloured dye/inks are used), as well as the temperature of the balloon and the room it is being inflated it.

To be fair, most branded balloons won't vary quite so much, but you will still get anomalies: ones that blow up much bigger, or - in some cases - smaller, than they should.

But generally-speaking, yes, plain colours blow-up better than metallics will.

The metailcs are less streachy becuase they are made to look metalic by adding Mica (a rock) to the latex. Thus a qualtex 36" will only be a 30" in the metalic range.
