We are a husband a wife duo who co-own Balloon Ace Limited, which is, the company behind www.balloonace.com.
How / when did you get into balloons?
We have been interested in balloons for as long as we can remember. It may sound boring but there was never any specific event which triggered this interest, it was always there.
What do you like about balloons?
Balloons are a very visual and tactile object. They have bright colours, feel solid although they only contain gas and they can be gone in an instant. We have long since been fascinated by balloons, the way they float effortlessly, their durability yet fragile nature and their association with fun and happiness.
What is your favourite balloon and why?
Our favourite balloon is the Belbal B120 (more commonly known as the Belbal 14"). These balloons are not too big and not too small. Their cost to quality ratio is, in our opinion, unsurpassed by any other balloon currently available. For this reason alone we choose to use Belbal balloons for our Balloon Ace logo balloons.
What is the most exciting thing you have done with balloons?
We have done many things with balloons like filling rooms with inflated balloons and 'pranking' people with balloons. However, the most exciting thing we have done with balloons so far is to become a balloon seller. Selling balloons allows us to share our passion for balloons with others and also enables people to buy great quality balloons more easily.
Is there anything you would like to try with balloons?
Being a balloon seller gives us access to many more balloons than most people but we like to keep balloon business and fun separate. It would be great to fill our entire house with inflated balloons at some point.
How did you get into producing online balloon content?
We do not currently produce online content. All images we share via our social media platforms are copyrighted by the models who we work with and shared following prior agreement.
Since we set up Balloon Ace in 2019 we have been fortunate enough to work with some great customers and also work with some great balloon models / studios. The balloon community has been very welcoming of us and we are truly grateful.
