What’s what in helium balloons?

A: The world of balloons can be a confusing place, with so many different types to choose from. It’s often hard to know where to start. Flick through our handy images to guide you on your way:

Foil BalloonsFoil Balloons
Made of: metallicised nylon;
Float time: around a week;
Shapes: stars, hearts, circles;
Colours: all;
Can they be personalised: oh yes;

Please note, foil balloons are particularly sensitive to temperature and may not always be suitable for outdoor use. On a very cold day, the helium will compress and make the balloon look saggy. On a very hot day, the helium will expand – balloons burst in hot cars, and as a result of extreme change of temperature. On a rainy day, the balloon will sink! Foil balloons are not suitable for release.
