Special Occasion Foils & Balloon Printing.


My last Blog was on the 7th March, It’s not that I have not been busy in fact quite the opposite I have been very busy, it was all about finding the time to Blog.

As I write this blog the new addition for Special Occasion Foils are being scanned into the system and forwarded to the web designer (If I can find him) to be added to the site. Graduation, Engagement, Christmas, Bar-Mitzvah and Bat-Mitzvah should be up and running by the end of March but will keep you all informed. (Jim get your finger out)

Each weekend in March has been busy and at least 5 event on each Saturday and Special Occasion Foils have been present at most of them.

Congratulations to Paul and Claire

Balloon Printing

During the week the balloon printing has been non stop and kept the print department on their toes with the foil balloon print still seeing growth upon last years figures.

As many of you know over the past 10 years I have offered a trade printing service to all balloon decorators and have constantly strived to give you the best service I could on small quantities but have struggles to give you the best price I could on larger runs. As many of you know we operate 2 Cantek 2000 manual latex machines here and yes I have printed runs on over 1000 balloon but its hard and frustrating and only so many hours in a working day (Not that it bothers me as I can often be found with my head stuck in a machine long after the staff have departed) but there comes a time when you need help , so I’ve invested in another printing machine, yep I’ve spent some money. First I have some alterations to do to the building as the machine is quite large and I hope these will start in mid April and the machine installed in May but for the moment I will be dedicating my time to a new trade print price list and soon be able to offer larger runs at more competitive prices. Be back soon, Matt

Ps, It also prints in 2 colour

About matthewlewisdisplays

We are a small balloon company based in Coventry. We specialize in balloon decoration and balloon printing. We have our own balloon printing machines & print on Qualatex latex balloons from 9" to 36" as well as 4ft & 5.5ft Chloroprenes in single colour and foils balloons from 18" , 20" and 36" in multi colour. We also have a full digital print arm to the company supplying business stationary and balloon race labels. As for me I'm self motivated, love my job and private life. Im married to Traci, have two children Joshua (Josh) and Harriet (Harribo) and two dogs, Midnight is a black Labrador and Zara is a black shaggy coated Labradoodle. My main hobby is fishing which I find very relaxing and I can be found with a rod in my hand most Sundays (Weather permitting). I also run a quiz every Monday evening in the pub I live next door to raising money for SANDS My balloon decorating career started many moons ago in 1989. I was introduced to Qualatex balloons just after that, passed my CBA in 1994 and have never looked back since. My work has taken me length and breath of England and into Europe working on large scale decor at Euro Disney in Paris and as well as Alacante in Spain and more recently appearing on the hit TV show "Idiot Abroad" staring Karl Pilkington & Warwick Davis on location in Macedonia for the 3rd and final series. My passion for balloons and balloon decoration continues to grow and I am a great believer that to be the best you need to use the best so Qualatex are my first and only balloon I use for large scale WOW factor decor. Their education and training are second to none and their vast array of products tick all the right boxes in the creative juices department.
