Inflatable / February 6, 2019 / Iva Gabriaux
Inflatables are basically commercial signages that are filled with air. It can assume any imaginable shape-from a simple circular ball to a giant robot. Hot air balloons can also be categorized under inflatables advertising. Inflatable costumes and inflatable balloons are some of the most popular forms of inflatables. Inflatable costumes are walking inflatables that interact with audiences. This type of inflatable is mostly loved by people especially by kids. It is an effective way of making your brand closely visible to your target market and it also builds a certain personal connection with them making it memorable and not easily forgotten.
This type of inflatable company is easy to operate but is designed for small-scale growth. For instance renting an inflatable to a household for a childs birthday party typically only happens on weekends and the largest inflatable you can buy is one that fits nicely into a large backyard. Bouncers are the most popular inflatables to buy in this situation and ball pits are a secondary choice. Since this type of business only functions on the weekends and holidays (for the most part) this is a good investment for families who are looking to make a little extra money part time.
Inflatables came very much into the public eye as architectural and domestic object when synthetic material became commonplace. Iconic structures like the US Pavillion on the 1970 Osaka Expo by Davis and Brody and Victor Lundys travelling pavillion for that Atomic Energy Commission popularized the idea that inflatables can be a way to build large structures with very extendend interior spans without pillars. These nice hopes for inflatable structures would later be dashed by the many practical difficulties faced by inflatable buildings such as climatization safety sensitivity to wind and fire proofing that currently restrict their use to very particular circumstances.
