Throw Back Thursday!

A giant inflatable hand!

Throw Back Thursday to 1995 and a giant inflatable hand sporting the “New” Seiko watch. All airbrushed by hand including the watch face. Way before giant digital printers came on the scene. Giant custom balloons or inflatables are a great way to get your product seen and noticed. They break through the clutter making your message front and center in people minds, and they’re fun!

Marketing products well takes a lot of creativity. The average American sees over 5,000 advertising messages daily. To make an impact when marketing products, your advertising, event planning & marketing strategies have to incorporate eye-catching techniques that leave an impression that lasts long enough to get consumers into your store to buy.

Not sure if they are allowed in your city? The zoning of inflatable outdoor advertising falls to each individual city. Policies for using inflatables usually fall under the city’s sign ordinance. Oftentimes policies are ambiguous, referring to inflatables as “ambient” balloons or devices, which could apply to either helium or cold-air inflatables.

So how do you find out? Cities now have the ordinances for signs online and with a little research you can chase down the requirements stating what times of year and how long they can be up. You can also call the zoning office or city hall if you can’t easily find them online. Either way giant inflatables are a fantastic way to get your product the “Attention Getting” it needs.

TBT Giant Balloon!

TBT, we did this 25′ tall Dannon cup around 1995. All hand painted before digital printing was even around! We would have to project and pattern it on a wall then transfer it to the fabric and paint it before was sewn together.

Giant Balloons for Sea World!

We just finished these giant balloons for Sea Worlds new evening show. They are completely digitally printed allowing internal illumination that gives off a wonderful glow through the brightly colored fabric.

 

Giant Anemones for Sea World

For the all new Electric Ocean Nighttime Celebration Sea World decided to use giant inflatable balloons. Along with updating the Cirque water show they wanted to spice up the different areas of the park with bold and interesting new props and color. After spending time with their creative team we came up with a series of 10 – 10′ tall inflatable anemones that would be installed on the roofs of different buildings throughout the park. The size and shape made a wonderful and whimsical impression and after being internally lit was a real hit among the attendees at Sea World.

TBT, Bird of Paradise Mural

In 2002 we were commissioned to paint a mural for the CDC El Cajon. We were asked to depict something for the rebirth of downtown El Cajon. The inspiration came to us as the Bird of Paradise, out of the ashes rebirth! It was a fun project that gave us a chance to show off our fine art side and do some airbrushing “in plein air”.

We make a ton of signs, banners, wraps, but this was an opportunity to do something that brought beauty into our world. It was painted in an alley way that people walked when going from a parking lot to the theater. I always imagined it would be a great surprise, turning a corner and being greeted by a colorful mural.

Do you an area that needs a fresh look? Maybe something that uplift your store or neighborhood? Give us a call we’d love to help you out!
