Cancellation Fee

Once an order is placed, a series of events happen including the preparing of the work order, ordering of supplies, if needed, and the routing and scheduling of the delivery. If an order is to be cancelled, these steps must be reversed, involving significant administrative time and costs. Our cancellation fees are used to cover the cost of this effort. There is a standard 25% cancellation fee (25% of the entire cost of the order including delivery and tax) on all orders that are cancelled before the 24 hour deadline noted above. If an order is cancelled less than 24 hours prior to delivery time, the entire purchase is forfeited. If the customer orders same day and cancels within 15 minutes of placing the order, there will be no cancellation fee. Otherwise, they will be subject to a 25% cancellation fee as noted above.

Float Time

Cold air, hot air, humidity, barometric pressure changes, high altitudes and moving air from fans and vents will reduce balloon float times. The float times posted below are the maximum expected float times. Changing conditions mean that on some occasions, balloons may float for only one day and on other occasions the same balloons may float for many days. We guarantee that your balloons will be delivered in perfect condition, but float times can vary.   Mylar balloons will remain full and taught for 3-5 days. They will continue to float for two weeks or longer. Air-conditioned and colder climate air may cause these balloons to shrivel, but they will return to a normal state when exposed to warmer air.  16″ latex balloons will float indoors for 30-40 hours. 11″ latex balloons will float indoors for 12-20 hours. Float times may be reduced by as much as 50% at elevations above 2,500 feet.

Hi-Float Treatment for Latex Balloons, used indoors and out of direct sunlight, will float for 3-5 days if treated with Hi-Float, a non toxic sealant which coats the inner wall of the balloon. However even with Hi-Float treatment, float times may be reduced by as much as 60% at elevations above 2,500 feet.

Balloon Sizes

The noted dimensions of mylar balloons are their size uninflated. A mylar balloon with a noted size of 18″ will be closer to 13″ once inflated. A 28″ mylar would typically be 24″ at the widest point after inflation.

Dimensions of latex balloons is their inflated size. For example, an 11″ latex balloons has an 11″ diameter at the widest point.
