WHAT  ARE  ROUSE  ROLL  BALLOONS?

Rouse Pre-Linked ROLL Balloons are the products of a “new”, Rouse original paradigm for manufacturing film balloons.

Traditional balloon manufacture stamps film to make INDEPENDENT balloons.

Quite simple, isn’t it?

Film is rolled out and under the presses. It is stamped to form linked, inflatable chambers. It is separated from the surrounding material and rolled up again. Later it can be unrolled to the length desired and cut off for use.

That is a lot of potential “rolling” so we often call them “ROLL Balloons” even though they may often be “fan folded” for packaging and distribution.  We will also refer to them as “Rouse Pre-Linked Balloons” or “Rouse Balloons” as we write about them here.

.

WHAT  MAKES  THEM  BETTER  FOR  YOU?

Rouse Pre-Linked ROLL Balloons offer powerful advantages on basic decorating tasks carried out every day by balloon amateurs and professionals around the world. Here is a brief look at two of the most obvious uses of the ROLL Balloons and benefits they offer.

A.  HELIUM FILLED ARCHES

BIGGER – Even when ROLL Balloons are comprised of the same number and sizes of balloons as more traditional clusters, ROLL Balloons give bigger displays because they stretch out and face the viewer.

EASIER – ROLL Balloons are easier to 1. Inflate, 2. Assemble, 3. Transport, 4. Install and 5. Buy. This is because they are already assembled into strings, inflate all at once, resist tangling, set easily into place and will be conveniently available to buy from local businesses.

FASTER – At each point where Roll Balloons are easier they are also faster. They take less user time to 1. Inflate, 2. Assemble, 3. Transport, 4. Install and 5. Buy. ROLL Balloon users get a greater return on their investment of time as well as money.

LONGER LASTING(1) A Pre-Linked ROLL Balloon arch naturally last much longer than latex balloons that form a similar arch. (2) A ROLL Balloon arch has a much longer useful life than independent film balloons that form a similar arch. A normal film balloon arch eventually weakens and is taken down.  A ROLL Balloon arch is easily refreshed through one end and its useful life thus, easily extended.

LOW COST — Pre-Linked ROLL Balloons take approximately the same amount of raw film and manufacture time as an equivalent series of unconnected look-a-likes, yet Pre-Linked Balloons would be sold in connected sets for more efficient packaging, distribution, sales and use.

REUSABLE  — Pre-Linked ROLL Balloons may be easily deflated and rolled up for reuse later. They give repeated value for one investment in balloons.

B. AIR FILLED GARLANDS

BIGGER – Even when ROLL Balloons are comprised of the same number and sizes of balloons as more traditional clusters, ROLL Balloons give bigger displays because they stretch out and face the viewer.

EASIER – ROLL Balloons are easier to 1. Inflate, 2. Assemble, 3. Transport, 4. Install and 5. Buy. This is because they are already assembled into strings, inflate all at once, resist tangling, set easily into place and will be conveniently available to buy from local businesses.

LONGER LASTING(1) A ROLL Balloon garland naturally last much longer than latex balloons that form a similar garland. (2) A ROLL Balloon garland has a much longer useful life than independent film balloons that form a similar garland. A normal film balloon garland eventually weakens and is taken down.  A ROLL Balloon garland is easily refreshed through one end and its useful life thus, easily extended.

LOW COST — ROLL Balloons take approximately the same amount of raw film and manufacture time as an equivalent series of unconnected look-a-likes, yet ROLL Balloons would be sold in connected sets for more efficient packaging, distribution, sales and use.

REUSABLE  — ROLL Balloons may be easily deflated and rolled up for reuse later. They give repeated value for one investment in balloons.

PLUS — ROLL Balloon garlands may be  wrapped  around some core to form columns, arches, sculptures, etc.

In each case, whether arches or garlands, Rouse ROLL Balloons make your job easier, faster, longer lasting and reusable. These are powerful advantages on basic decorating tasks carried out every day by balloon amateurs and professionals around the world.

C.  BEYOND HELIUM ARCHES AND AIR GARLANDS

We begin here with helium filled arches and air filled garlands since they are so popular. The possibilities are much greater, however. For instance, we can make a variety of self forming columns, arches, spirals and sculptures with customized forms of Pre-Linked balloons that may be inflated with either air or helium.

THE  FUTURE  OF “ROLL  BALLOONS”

The basic concept for these Rouse ROLL Balloons is quite simple. The variations, permutations and ramifications made possible by this simple concept , however, are quite enormous in number and unending in the impact they will have on the future of balloon art, balloon decor and message marketing with balloons.

“Rouse ROLL Balloons will not be chosen every time, not even most of the time; but they will be an option to be considered nearly all of the time.”

It is not that these new balloons will replace all current balloons.  That is entirely unlikely.

  • It is likely that over time, these Rouse balloons will cause a shift in the way manufacturers think about what is the most efficient way to manufacture and sell film balloons.
  • It is likely that over time, these Rouse balloons will cause a shift in the preferred configuration of film balloons by distributors.
  • It is likely that over time these Rouse balloons will cause a shift in balloon configurations that retailers prefer and promote.
  • It is likely that over time, these Rouse balloons will cause a shift in the way amateur and professional decorators think about what is the most efficient and effective way to produce their art and their commercial service.
  • It is likely that over time, these Rouse balloons will cause a rise in in the expectations of balloon consumers in the ease, convenience, scale and value they receive for their money invested in balloon decor and messages.
  • It is likely that over time, these Rouse balloons will cause a shift in configuration preferences and a rise in expectations of balloon licensors.

These Rouse Pre-Linked ROLL Balloons, their children and grandchildren, their nephews and nieces, etc. will likely become basic, everyday elements to be considered by anyone who wishes to use balloons for art or commerce nearly everywhere around the world.

ROLL Balloons will not be chosen every time, not even most of the time; but they will be an option to be considered nearly all of the time. They simply offer too many efficiencies as well as esthetic and practical variations to be ignored.

* NOTE:
“NEW” is often included in quotes in this article when referring to ROLL Balloons. Rouse ROLL Balloons represent a new paradigm in balloon manufacturing method and offer new balloon forms to the current (2015) balloon industry and balloon public. They were, however, first conceived by Graham Rouse in 1987 and first disclosed publicly in patent documents he filed in 1995. Rouse enhancements of the concept and improvements in the technology lead to his most recent version of related disclosures and claims in a 2006 patent application that was allowed as USA Patent # 7, 491,109 in 2009.
