Round hot air balloons lend themselves to be being branded with artwork and images which reflect a product, brand, or logo. The artwork can be sewn on top of the main balloon fabric - appliqué - or cut in to the original balloon envelope, so save weight and ensure an authentic colour match to exiting logos and artwork. It is also possible to reproduce a full colour photographic image, using a massive ink-jet printer which prints the individual panels of the balloon. A good example of this would be the Clairol balloon which we commissioned for Procter & Gamble.

Only capable of carrying the pilot, branded balloons of this size are cheap to produce and provide a great solution for companies looking to do short term contracts, or are working on tight budgets.

The most common size of advertising balloon, capable of carrying the pilot and between 2 and top to 4 passengers. This size of balloon provides the perfect balance between passenger carrying capabilities and initial construction cost.
Balloons of this size are designed primarily for their passenger carrying capabilities. Able to fly between upwards of 5 people at a time. ABC has its own 120 used for Film & TV.
Hot air balloons are annually checked by a Civil Aviation Inspector, to confirm their Continuing Airworthiness and safety.
On average a balloon will last between 300 - 400 hours, which equates to around 5-6 years of commercial use.
