Custom Colour Blends

Have you ever looked at some amazing photos of balloon decor and thought the only way to get those exact colours was some heavy photoshop action? In the past this may have been the case but with our work the past few years, we have been custom blending colours to create the perfect tone.

Rather than going offshore months in advance to try and organise a minimum run of hundreds of thousands to PMS match a colour, we are using two balloon colours to create just the right shade.  It is a bit of a science – not just the Red plus Yellow = Orange of primary school days!  You’d be amazed at how black or dark purple under a light colour creates such depth and a colour you never new existed.

It is a very time intensive task (and much harder on our hands!) so there is extra costs involved with this – but I think the one of a kind results are definitely worth it. See what you think – Some examples of our recent favourite colour blend combinations and jobs are below.  Grey/Granite/Slate is in my books the hottest trend of late 2017/early 2018!
