So you have decided to get some balloons printed and you are wondering about how long they are going to take before they are delivered. Well, it depends on a few details but our normal lead time is about a week from approval of artwork and receipt of payment.
If you need your balloons quicker than this, then we can quite often print them faster, just ask us and if we aren’t too busy then we will do our best to fit the job into an earlier time slot.
The sort of thing which may delay the production of your personalised balloons would be things like getting balloons printed in more than one colour, getting larger quantities printed – a quantity larger than 2000 for example, and ordering balloon colours that are not normal stock items (there are a few colours that we wouldn’t sell from one year to the next). There are also some balloon types which we can’t always dispatch within the week such as foil balloons, and balloons which are a larger size than the normal 11 or 12-inch balloons.
The final thing that can affect the delivery time will be the delivery method chosen. We can use several types of delivery methods such as a courier, Royal Mail Special Delivery, Royal Mail 1st class/parcel, Hand delivery and of course you can pick them up from us. Any of the services which involve a third party delivery service can sometimes take longer than expected (at the time of writing there is about 6 inches of snow outside – nothing is going anywhere today ), although we do our best to deliver within the required time sometimes the couriers will let us down, so please order in plenty of time.
