Mal,
I have had a little bit of success with this and with using a Versacamm and it looks amazing! Let me check with the manaufacturer if the product is available yet and if so where from and will post it back along with the pictures of the ones I have printed.

Just to confirm again - it did work with Eco Max Ink!

Right guys, how would you like a new application? There have been a few queries regarding balloon printing on the Forum and until now it has been extremely difficult with inkjet if not impossible. That is until now and here she is! You you want to know the other amazing thing I found out? You can print it using a BN20 and below is the proof. They are available from a company caled Floato and you can contact them at help@floato.com or call on 0208 905 5482. (a great bunch of guys and very enthusiastic about this amazing product) I have tried these myself so if you need any advice I would be happy to help and share what I have learnt.

Enjoy!

Looking great Mr. Wyles - Have you tried them with metallic ink as well?

Rob - I thought you had seen the samples in the office. Metallic works on the Balloons. However, the fact that the balloons are slightly off-white in colour and also have a Matt feel and look to them you do not get the desired result from the Metallic ink and it is not something I would personally reccommend.

As this is the first balloon which will work with the Eco Sol Max ink - who knows what they might come up with next!

Sorry Mal,

Definently give them a call and they will be more than happy to help. I seem to remember a conversation with you a while ago regarding some other products and I think this could go hand in hand! If you cannot remember give me a call to discuss.

Good Luck Mal

Mal,

Did you ever try the balloon printing for your customer? It would be great to hear how you got on and if they liked the finished Product.
