17.My balloons are popping when I inflate them, what’s wrong?
Answer: Always store your balloons in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight or heat Inflating balloons in cold conditions tends to stiffen the latex balloons, Balloons should be left to warm up a bit before inflating them so they wouldn’t pop due to rapid expansion from inflation.   

Another reason could be over inflating the balloons with helium or air. It is always a good idea to keep a check on how much the balloon has inflated and to not fill it up completely, leaving some room for expansion of helium. 

18.Can I make amendments to OR cancel my order after the order has been placed?

21.Do I need to resize and center all text before I submit my file 

Answer: All text submitted for custom messages is centered and resized to best fit the balloon imprint area. We try to make the text look as big as possible. It’s always a good idea to provide instructions on how text should appear, especially where multiple lines need to be printed 

22.How many lines of text can I add to the balloons
Answer: We can print multiple lines of text. Keep in mind, the more lines you have the more crowded the print area would become and it will affect text size to be much smaller.
