What a year!

As 2011 comes to a close we wanted to reflect on the year we’ve had at Premier Balloons.

February saw the opening of the shop on Middleton Road …where has the time gone!?

This year saw a very proud achievement as Kevin successfully completed a program of written tests, as well as a trip down to Oxford for a Practical Examination in front of some of the worlds leading Balloon decorators. The exam was to demonstrate his knowledge and ability to produce quality balloon work, Kevin qualified with 92% giving him the world recognised CBA status.

We were delighted to have one of our wedding designs chosen to be featured in the 2012 worlds top balloon manufactures catalogue for the United States edition.

Another of our wedding creations was spotted and we’ve been asked for the design to feature in the balloon industry magazine ‘images’ next year!

Kevin’s Santa Arch design went global (You may have seen his Santa Arch in our window on the run up to Christmas). The design was featured in a Balloon Blog for Balloon Professionals and has inspired balloon artists across the globe being recreated in the States, Germany and Hong Kong!!

This year has seen an increase of Corporate Jobs, we’ve been thrilled to welcome work from Thomas Cook, Late Rooms.com, Ambassadors Theatre Group (Opera House, Manchester), O2, Metrolink and The Stonegate Pub Co to name a few.

Our website has had a little more than a makeover!! Thanks to the tireless work from Atominx, our website is now a joy to the eye and displays our work beautifully!

The shops location has brought new lines of business our way, the Jewish, Asian and Traveller Communities have all been a delight to create balloon designs for, we’re coming up with some exciting, new bar/bat mitzvah designs as well as some stunning, new wedding designs for the new year!


What will next year bring???

Well, we’re already getting prepared for some exciting additions to the business; enquiries for Chair Cover Hire and Candy Buffet Hire are already coming in – keep your eyes pealed for more details coming in the new year!!

We would like to wish all our customers a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukka and a joyous New Year!
