Full Steam Ahead


Easter came and went, 3 days later were on holiday again and all glued to our TV sets to watch “The Royal Wedding” and yes it was fantastic, proud to be British. May Day ended before it began and before you knew it we were all back at work and another bank holiday looms just around the corner. Between the 18th April and the end of this week we will have only worked 11 days out of a possible 15 and now have to play catch up.


Special Occasion Foil. 27 orders in 4 week, not bad for April and the orders have been arriving every day in May on an average of 3 orders per day and its great to see some new companies using the site. The Confirmation & First Holy Communion season is just around the corner but the wedding day design still tops the leader board with the most popular being white with a silver print. Latex and foil balloon print still remain buoyant and on average about 15 orders per week which is good for this time of year.

New Print Machine arrive later this month. The work on the print room is 90% completed and just need a big tidy up and a coat of paint.

I took a long weekend break during the Royal Wedding and May-day and left all the decoration to Danny and as per usual everything went 100%. It’s great to now I have trusted staff which means I can relax a bit more. All the weddings that Dan decorated involved Special Occasion Foil.

Whilst Dan took a well needed rest on Sunday 1st May  Ben Parkinson stood in and helped with the decor for the Catering Awards 2011 at the Hilton Metropole NEC. Each 36″ red star foils had a restaurant name printed both sides replacing the traditional table number. Well done Ben and many thanks

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.
