Inflatable / October 10, 2018 / Zurie Chandonnet
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.
These are a step above the event rentals but with the same basic concept. Instead of renting inflatables and choosing some employees to man them this company targets specific carnivals fairs and public events like the California State Fair. They set up a permanent location at these events pop up a large inflatable and people purchase tickets to enjoy the inflatable area for a certain period of time. For this company the wear and tear on the inflatables is less sporadic and more of a full time concern. However they make a constant stream of money during the events unlike the one-day rental options.
If you have purchased a used product you can still inquire about getting an owners manual from the bounce house manufacturer. Usually the owners manual will display a step-by-step instruction of how to setup and teardown an inflatable product. This will also cover where the tie downs are where the enter and exits ramps are located where and when to use the product what age group it is designed for and space requirements. The details covered in an owners manual will differ from company to company since one will be more thorough or precise with clearer images than the other.
