Printing Balloons Neck up or Neck Down?

Posted by Jim Campbell on

Printing Balloons Neck Up or Neck DownWhen we print a balloon it is important that we get the orientation correct, after all, we don't want to have to stand on our heads to be able to read the text.

The vast majority of the balloons we print, and I'm talking 99.9%+ are printed neck down, in fact, I can't even remember the last time we did a neck up order, it must be at least a year ago or more.  

So what does printing balloons Neck Up/Neck Down mean, I hear you ask?  Ok, it's pretty straight forward really, and if you don't mind me saying, it's pretty obvious!  I'm not saying that you are asking silly questions or anything, but you know....

Anyway, the term Neck Up/Neck Down refers to the orientation of the print on the balloon.  The neck end of a balloon is the bit that the air or helium goes into and then gets tied.  If you were to hold the balloon neck in your hand with the rest of the balloon pointing up towards the roof, then if you can read the text on it, without any contortions, then it is printed Neck Down.  If your hand is towards the ceiling and the balloon is pointing at the floor then the balloon is printed Neck Up.

Neck up printed balloons are used for things like being filled with helium for balloon bouquets, or to be filled with air and put onto balloon sticks.  The only reason I can think of to have balloon printed Neck Up is to fill them with air and hang them from the ceiling.

We don't charge any extra for printing the balloons Neck Up or Neck Down, as long as the whole order is the same orientation just let us know which you want when placing the order.
