Default You can purchase new Qualtex 24"
So I rang up Qualatex UK. Spoke to a lady in sales that stated you can have a run of Q24" done, minimum order 20,000.

If I win the lottery I'd have 100,000 made. Those who are affluent and miss the balloon - you can place an order!

Thumbs up Re: You can purchase new Qualtex 24"
So, in theory, 20,000 x roughly £1 per balloon, means a minimum order of £20k.

Yikes!!! As you say, nice if you can afford it. However, what I suspect someone could do is, place an order, then sell each balloon off at a 50% markup, and make £40k. Nice!

Huh, I didn't know they still offered a wholesale of the balloon. These offers are usually offered to shops rather than individuals so should we tell one of our favorite shops about this?

I sadly doubt they'd be willing to spend over £20,000 for stock, they may not be able to sell. Bear in mind the Q24 was discontinued for a reason - lack of sales. Unless you could guarantee that the store/business you went to, would completely sell-out of the Q24's, then I doubt you'd convince them to place an order - at least, not without paying up-front first.

Pretty much what BalloonBoyUK said. Pay upfront, they still have the moulding for the balloons, so you'd pay and wait for shipping.

Interesting... I'm pretty sure if someone like Balloons United announced they had a limited run of new Q24s, they'd be able to sell them at whatever price you care to name.

Gives you an idea not only of their manufacturing scale but also how many balloons of all sizes they probably make a day. And I'm not surprised they have kept the molds; they'd be worth thousands of dollars.

Hi q24 fanatics. New here.
Why donít we crowd fund a run? 200 q24 lovers each putting in 100 euro and we are good to go! Are there enough of us is the question. First round just think of the great price we would get. Power in numbers.
Thoughts?
Would you put +100 euro dollar on the table? If we donít reach goal everyone gets their investment back. Dedicated community, niche market? Perfect for crowd funding.

Lack of massive sales because decorators don’t like them but we DO! It’s a scale business for sure 20,000 is not a lot for them but for us? Prebought, no sales cost no need to stock.
I talked to lady she said they were not interested in small runs. Do you have contact info? Anyone?

Sorry to barge in guys.
I am huge fan. Do not know what I will do when my stock is gone. Crisis. I live in Amsterdam and just joined. I have been talking about this on Facebook and someone told me about this forum.
Got excited, signed up and barged in. A bit rude of me.
Hi group I am Will. Nice to be here.
