Welcome To Puffin Balloons
The core company was established in 1987, Puffin Balloons is the leading innovator in balloon screen-printing. Our continued commitment to quality, value and service has ensured our place as the acknowledged experts in the field.
Our background in engineering has enabled us to build state of the art printing machinery capable of reproducing laser sharp, multi-colour images recognised as the best in the industry. In pursuit of excellence we have developed and manufactured our own range of premium quality balloons, branded as Puffin Balloons.
These are ideally suited for use in promotions and fully complement the quality of our screen-printing. We have these produced on machines manufactured by our parent company Greenbrook Automations Ltd.
Custom Printed Balloons.
Our unique four colour printing process reproduces the most detailed spot colour designs and achieves excellent colour registration.
As our balloons are printed whilst inflated, the result is denser ink coverage, brighter colour, sharper contrast and a more accurate colour match, invaluable where clients need to retain corporate identity at promotional events.
From single sided printing to complex multi-colour, multi-sided prints, we have a print format to suit any logo or design, guaranteed to enhance your promotions.
We can even print on heart shaped latex balloons!
Standard Print Balloons
We offer a wide range of standard prints suitable for that special party or celebration, from Happy Birthday to Happy New Year.
Puffin Balloons consistently deliver the quality you expect and the look your promotions demands.
With a higher level of pigmentation than the average balloon, the range of colours is vibrant and eye-catching.
Our standard range is produced in sizes of 10 and 12 inches and consists of 19 colours, with heart-shaped balloons available in 10 colours. Our metallic range is produced in sizes of 5 and 12 inches and consists of 21 colours.
All Puffin balloons provide excellent helium retention and are manufactured from bio-degradable pure natural latex.
They can be purchased in bulk, pre packed and bagged specifically to customer requirement.
Cups and Sticks
Balloons with cups and sticks attached are the perfect alternative to helium filled balloons. They are easily attached and ensure that the balloon remains upright at the ideal height for maximum promotional impact.

Self Sealing Ribbon Valves
Self-sealing valves can be fitted to balloons to facilitate helium filling. The valve seals the balloon and, since it is pre-ribboned, eliminates knot tying, and saves valuable time.
Electric inflators are the ideal tool to inflate large quantities of balloons, they are labour saving and simple to use. For smaller quantities of balloons, hand pumps are an alternative.
