Balloon Releases

Mark a special occasion with a balloon release

What better way to celebrate than with a balloon release.

Balloon releases can be spectacular. Use them to:

  • launch a new business
  • as part of an open day
  • funerals and commemorative events
  • to raise money for school events and charities.
  • raise money by having a balloon race and selling race labels for £1 or more

The balloons need to be inflated on the day of the release. The nearer you do it to the time of the release the further the balloons will travel. If you choose to do the balloon release yourself then it is best to organise a team of people. For 400 balloons or less then 3 people are best. One person can inflate and 2 can tie and put on the labels. For larger releases then a team of 5 is better with 1 person inflating and 4 people tying and adding labels.

The race labels are pushed through the knotted neck of the balloon and require no ribbon or string. Anything that is not biodegradeable is not allowed in balloon releases such as ribbon, string or foil balloons. The latex balloons are fully biodegradeable and studies show that they biodegrade at the same rate as an oak leaf, which is approximately 6 months.

Alternatively why not purchase one of our DIY packages It includes everything you need - balloons, helium, printed race labels and a release net if required. Advice will be given.

Helium cylinders may be collected and returned after the event, otherwise a delivery and collection charge may apply.

BALLOON RELEASES FOR WEDDINGS, FUNERALS AND COMMEMORATIVE EVENTS

We can also supply single helium filled balloons with our special dove cards attached. The cards are filled with wild flower seeds which will set when the card biodegrades. We also sell the dove cards separately. See our funeral balloons page for more details.

RACE LABELS

We can supply you with race labels for your balloon release at the following cost:
  • Two part, pre-printed on the front and numbered £15 per 100
  • With return address on back of label - quote on request
  • With colour logo on back of label plus return address - quote on request
  • Dove shaped labels filled with wild flower seeds = £1 each.

Please note that the space to print this is approximately 2½ inch square so the less wording the larger the print.

Testimonials

Jo McKenzie Just to let you know the balloon release went very well. It was very uplifting watching them soar in to the sky and everyone was overcome with emotion and loved it. The doves were inspired and we had enough left over to hand out to people to plant in their gardens.  I have some in a pot and am hoping they seed and grow this summer.
Thanks again for being so kind and helpful at such a difficult time, it was most appreciated.
