Giant Cold Air Inflatables

Giant Cold Air Inflatables utilize a continuously running blower to keep them optimally inflated at all times. Giant inflatables are of commercial quality and can be used indoors and outdoors for a multitude of experiential activations. Grand openings, company events, music festivals, trade shows, and many other examples abound. With proper care, these inflatables can last for years to come. Cold air inflatables are customizable and can be created in almost any shape – including inflatable product replicas, inflatable mascots & characters, and more! Our in-house design team can create any type of inflatable using 3D modeling to make sure your custom inflatable is precisely what you want. We pride ourselves on industry-leading production quality at a competitive price point!

Sealed Inflatables

Also known as sealed airtight inflatables, these do not require a blower system attached to them to provide continuous airflow. You can inflate them by merely using your mouth, hand pump, or electric inflator. With no need for an electrical source, sealed inflatables can be placed anywhere. These are ideal for indoor use since they create no sound, making them great for in-store marketing as part of your point-of-sale display. Another common type of airtight inflatable are pool floats, which are great for influencer marketing efforts or premium giveaways. In the past few years, we have seen a surge for these types of collaborations!

Marketing Inflatable Advantages

Nothing gives you a more prominent in-person 3D branding presence than marketing inflatables. They inflate big in minutes and pack down small when deflated, making them easy to transport and store. Inflatables can be made into any shape or design you can dream of, so the sky is the limit when it comes to creativity. Whether it is a gigantic cold air inflatable unit for an event, or a small sealed inflatable for a POP (Point-Of-Purchase) / in-store retail display, all of our inflatable products are designed using computer modeling to ensure an accurate representation is created.

Unlike billboards, radio, print, or online ads, which are a one-time investment – inflatables are re-useable. You can’t shift billboards from one place to another, but you can take the same custom designed giant inflatable product unit to different events, festivals, or trade shows and promote your business successfully. Plus, they are easy to use and set-up. You can get an inflatable set-up in a few minutes, and depending on the size of the unit; it may only require one or a few people for installation and set up.

Inflatables are fun and capture the imagination, plus they provide a natural photo backdrop perfect for selfies and other pictures your customers may share on social media helping to spread your brand online. These are true workhorses for your marketing objectives! If you take good care of your inflatables, they will last more than a decade.
