LICENSOR   ADVANTAGES

If a new balloon configuration has advantages for end users and it has the advantage of improving the profits of each level of the distribution chain, then chances are pretty good that it would be to your advantage to license your most valuable design assets for production and distribution in this new form.

Roll Balloons provide significant advantages

  • to balloon consumers
  • to the Retailers, Decorators and Entertainers that serve them
  • to the distributors that supply them and
  • to the manufacturers that produce the balloons in the first place.

If you missed the introduction to what Roll Balloons are, we recommend you pause now and read, “Rolling Out Roll Balloons”.  It will get you “up to speed”.

CONSUMERS – Whatever your design assets are that have done well in the past, they are likely to do even better when they are provided to consumers in Roll Balloon versions that are BIGGER, EASIER, FASTER, LONGER LASTING and a REPEATING VALUE.

  • 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 consumer time to 1. Inflate, 2. Assemble, 3. Transport, 4. Install and 5. Buy. Consumers get a greater return on their investment of time as well as money.
  • LONGER LASTING – Arches and garlands made from any film balloons naturally 1. Last much longer than those made from latex balloons. Film balloon arches and garlands configured as Rouse Roll balloons have 2. An even longer useful life, because they are so easily refreshed by adding gas to all balloons at once.
  • REPEATING VALUE  — Roll Balloons may be easily deflated and rolled up for reuse later. They give repeated value for one investment in balloons.

RETAILERS, DECORATORS & ENTERTAINERS –  These three groups will be able to serve up your designs in

  • creative new ways
  • on more dramatic scales and
  • with more profit

DISTRIBUTORS – Distributors do well in direct proportion to those below them in the distribution chain.  As consumers turn more and more to these Roll Balloons that provide your images, shapes and messages in forms that are BIGGER, EASIER, FASTER AND LONGER LASTING; then the Retailers, Decorators and Entertainers that serve them and the Distributors that supply them will all be eager for more of the creative designs that you devise.

MANUFACTURERS – The production equipment and skills required by Roll Balloon are only slightly higher that with ordinary, individual film balloons.  But that slight “raising of the bar” is critical. Make sure that manufacturers you select, demonstrate high standards of quality control.

Manufacturers in the USA will be required to have a license to produce Rouse Roll Balloons.  And only Roll Balloons produced under licenses will be allowed for distribution, sale and use in the USA or in other territories where USA patent protections apply.

There is something positive to be said for selecting a manufacturer who has taken the initiative to secure a Roll Balloon license on their own and demonstrated their commitment and competence by producing their own designs in Roll Balloon form.

There is, however, the option for you as a design licensor to secure your own license to produce your designs in Roll Balloon form.  That way you might sub-license a manufacturer of your choosing (potentially even one outside the USA) to manufacture exclusively your designs in Roll Balloon form for sale in the USA.

A  CLOSER  LOOK  AT  ADVANTAGES

Since the success of your licensed balloon products is so intertwined with the success of each level of the distribution chain, you may want to take a closer look at the advantages Rouse Roll Balloons bring to each of those levels

FAQ – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Here are the four most frequently asked questions, so far, about Rouse Roll Balloons.   Chances are good that these questions will come up for you as you consider which designs would be best for you to license in Roll Balloon form.  The numbered questions in bold print are also links to answers.

(1)  What about the California balloon law? It is not the law in every state, but it is becoming the national standard for safe practices with film balloons.

(2)  What about leaks? Will a leak in one chamber lead to the loss of gas in all chambers? How do you deal with that risk?

(3)  What about Price?  How much will it cost to get the benefits of Bigger, Easier, Faster, Longer Lasting and Reusable?

(4)  What about competition?  Balloon professionals, in particular, have concerns about losing sales to “Do It Yourself” decorators and their suppliers.

 

THE TIME HAS COME FOR
THESE ADVANTAGES TO BE YOURS

ROLL BALLOONS are not yet in general production and distribution. But, they can be and will be if  YOU AS A LICENSOR authorize your designs for Roll Balloons.  Roll Balloons are not just new shapes, they are a new class of balloons and might appropriately be licensed separately from other classes of balloons.

  • BEST SELLERS – Start with your best selling film balloon designs and license them in Roll Balloon configurations.  Your best selling designs already have an edge in the market. They should sell even better when they are BIGGER, EASIER, FASTER and LONGER LASTING.
  • COORDINATES – Follow up by licensing Roll Balloon designs that coordinate with paper products and popular decorating accessories that you have also licensed.
  • NEW  DESIGNS – Survey your assets for designs that lend themselves naturally to repetition across an arch or garland.

MANUFACTURER  ADVANTAGES

Rouse Roll Balloons offer balloon manufacturers the opportunity to leverage their most valuable balloon design assets into a new class of balloons; one that provides valuable advantages to everyone from licensors and manufacturers to retailers and consumers.

If you missed the introduction to what Roll Balloons are, we recommend you pause now and read, Rolling Out Roll Balloons. It will get you “up to speed”.

 

THE  ADVANTAGES  OF  ADVANTAGES

If a balloon has advantages for the customers of your customers and it has the advantage of improving the profits of your customers, then chances are pretty good that it would be to your advantage to manufacture and supply that balloon.

Roll Balloons provide significant advantages to balloon consumers and to the Retailers, Decorators and Entertainers that buy from the distributors you supply.

We provide summaries below of those advantages. For a more detailed look at the advantages to be gained by each group when they buy the Roll Balloons you manufacture, read these articles:

.

1.  THE TIME HAS COME FOR
CONSUMER ADVANTAGES

The person at the end of the distribution chain is the balloon consumer. If he benefits, then there is opportunity for everyone else above him. Roll Balloons provide significant benefits to that consumer and thereby significant opportunities to the businesses that serve the consumer, significant opportunities to the distributors who supply those businesses and significant opportunities to YOU who get the ball rolling with the balloons you manufacture.

Rouse Roll Balloons benefit consumers by making balloon decorations and messages bigger, easier, faster, longer lasting and a repeating value.

  • 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 the businesses your distributors supply.
  • FASTER – At each point where Roll Balloons are easier they are also faster. They take less consumer time to 1. Inflate, 2. Assemble, 3. Transport, 4. Install and 5. Buy. Consumers get a greater return on their investment of time as well as money.
  • LONGER LASTING – Arches and garlands made from any film balloons naturally 1. Last much longer than those made from latex balloons. Film balloon arches and garlands configured as Rouse Roll balloons have 2. An even longer useful life, because they are so easily refreshed by adding gas to all balloons at once.
  • REPEATING VALUE  — Roll Balloons may be easily deflated and rolled up for reuse later. They give repeated value for one investment in balloons.

 

2.  THE TIME HAS COME FOR
RETAILER ADVANTAGES

When retailers provide greater value to their customers while maintaining or improving their margins, retailer profits go up. Roll balloons enable retailers to provide that greater value while maintaining or improving their margins.

  • BALLOON COSTS – Roll Balloon configurations generally require approximately the same amount of film as their single balloon cousins. Roll Balloons will likely require a little more effort in packaging, but overall less packaging will be required, because more balloons will be sold as a single unit (arch or garland). Retailer cost per balloon should remain very close to the same.
  • LABOR COSTS – Labor costs per balloon sold will go down. If a retailer were to sell a Roll Balloon arch of just five balloons, they would simply unroll the balloons and inflate them all at once. When the automatic valve cuts off, they are done with all five balloons. They do not have to start over on number two of four remaining balloons to be individually inflated and tied, etc.
  • DISPLAY COSTS – Retailer requirements for shelf or display rack space will remain about the same.  Live display space requirements will go up a bit , but labor costs for that display will be significantly less than a similar number of individual balloons.
  • AVERAGE SALE – Since each Roll Balloon contains multiple balloons, retailers can expect their average balloon sale to go up and profits to go up with it.
  • UP SELL – Retailers should take advantage of both old and new “add-on” items to up sell their Roll Balloon customers.
  • UPGRADE – With Roll Balloons retailers have the perfect segue to sell room or event decor rather than just an accent for the occasion.

 

3.  THE  TIME  HAS  COME  FOR
DECORATOR  ADVANTAGES

Many decorators are also retailers and may take advantage of the benefits listed above for relatively short , prepackaged Roll Balloons. Or, decorators may incorporate these Roll Balloons into their custom decor.

An additional type of Roll balloon, that happens to also be particularly efficient to manufacture, will be Roll Balloons literally hundreds of feet long. Professional decorators will be able to roll out lengths to fit their venue and design needs.

These Roll Balloons will go up with such speed, efficiency and effect that they will put latex arches and garlands AND  single film balloon arches and garlands to shame on a great many occasions.

Each type of balloon actually has its own special characteristics that will make it the best choice some time.  Roll Balloons have such positive characteristics for decor that they will be worth considering every time.

.

4.  THE  TIME  HAS  COME  FOR
ENTERTAINER  ADVANTAGES

Rouse Roll Balloons offer professional entertainers new tools for instant, reusable staging, giant figures and new balloon forms to engage their audiences.

  • It is a simple matter for entertainers to set their stages quickly and easily with arches, garlands or streamers of Roll Balloons. Entertainers can rotate Roll Balloons and/or weave them in with other balloons for more intricate sets. Most of, these sets may be deflated and saved for reuse.
  • Most balloon entertainers weave strings of bubbles on a small scale to make balloon figures.  Strings of Roll Balloon “bubbles” provide an opportunity for entertainers to make balloon figures quickly and easily on a much grander scale and to have them last much longer.
  • The novelty of these new balloon forms will help engage the audience.  The scale and toughness of these roll balloons may also allow for more audience participation.  The extended life of these balloons make them good candidates for construction of samples that may be put in conspicuous places to engage the audience both long before and long after the show.

.

5. THE TIME HAS COME FOR
DISTRIBUTOR  ADVANTAGES

Rouse Roll Balloons offer so many advantages to the customers of distributors and to the customers of distributors’ customers that these new balloons are a “natural” to include in the inventory distributors carry, promote and sell.

We would expect the margins for Roll Balloons to remain about the same as other film balloons.  The many advantages enumerated above, however, suggest that this new class of balloons will be especially popular and therefore especially profitable for distributors.

.

 FAQ – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

In addition to advantages to be gained,there are also questions to be answered.  Here are the four most frequently asked questions, so far, about Rouse Roll Balloons.   Chances are good that these questions will come up for you as you consider which designs would be best for you to manufacture in Roll Balloon form.  The numbered questions in bold print are also links to answers.

(1)  What about the California balloon law? It is not the law in every state, but it is becoming the national standard for safe practices with film balloons.

(2)  What about leaks?  Will a leak in one chamber lead to the loss of gas in all chambers? How do you deal with that risk?

(3)  What about Price?  How much will it cost to get the benefits of Bigger, Easier, Faster, Longer Lasting and Reusable?

(4)  What about competition?  Balloon professionals, in particular, have concerns about losing sales to “Do It Yourself” decorators and their suppliers.

THE  TIME  HAS  COME  FOR
THESE  ADVANTAGES  TO  BE  YOURS

ROLL BALLOONS are not yet in general production and distribution. But, they can be and will be if you personally and YOU AS A GROUP OF MANUFACTURERS produce, promote and supply them.

  • BEST SELLERS – Start with your best selling film balloon designs and make them in Roll Balloon configurations.  Just contact us at gmr@rousetech.com for licensing. Your best selling designs already have an edge in the market.  They should sell even better when they are BIGGER, EASIER, FASTER and LONGER LASTING.
  • COORDINATES – Follow up by producing Roll Balloon designs that coordinate with paper products and popular decorating accessories that you and/or your distributors sell.
  • CUSTOM  DESIGNS – You do not have to wait until those large corporate accounts  come to you looking for their custom balloons in these new Roll Balloon configurations.  You can be the leader with your Roll Balloon license, going to them with proposals to make their balloon images and messages BIGGER, EASIER, FASTER AND LONGER LASTING.
  • LICENSED  DESIGNS – You have licenses now to sell popular copyrighted designs.  That should give you the edge for producing those designs in Roll Balloon configurations. But, that edge is not guaranteed.
    • Roll Balloons are not just new shapes, they are a new class of balloons.  In all likelihood licenses for Roll Balloon versions of copyrighted designs will be bid separately from other classes of balloons.  If you do not have a license to produce Roll Balloons, you will be out of the bidding.
    • On the other hand, once you have your Roll Balloon license, you could go to the companies from whom you license designs now and show them how you can make their balloon images, shapes and messages BIGGER, EASIER, FASTER AND LONGER LASTING.
    • You could take that initiative further by going after licenses you missed last time. Propose to those companies that you produce their images, shapes and messages in these new Roll Balloon forms.
    • And, there is the option to go after balloon licenses of copyrighted designs that are not yet available to anyone.   You could have something new to offer those companies that might get their attention and licenses for you.

TRouse Pre-Linked ROLL Balloon logo/iconHE  TIME  HAS  COME  FOR
ENTERTAINER  ADVANTAGES

This new class of balloons offers professional entertainers new tools for instant, reusable staging, giant figures and new balloon forms to engage audiences.

If you missed the introduction to what Roll Balloons are, we recommend you pause now and read, “Rolling Out Roll Balloons”. It will get you “up to speed”.

.

THE  ADVANTAGES  OF  STAGING

Whether your next “gig” is in a private home for a child’s birthday party or in a large auditorium, it would probably be helpful if you had your own instant and reusable staging for your presentation.  If you entertain with balloons, then you surely have the skills to build your own backdrop with balloons along with your balloon props.

But, it really would be nice wouldn’t it, if you could simply shoot the gas to your backdrop and have it up in a few minutes, take it down quickly after the show and have it ready for reuse later?  Roll balloons offer that kind of possibility.

Maybe it is something as simple as four arches behind you like a rainbow.  Shoot the gas to all the balloons in a single arch at one time.  Set the weighted ends on the floor and you are done.

Maybe you prefer something a little more elaborate.  Maybe you use seven Roll Balloon strings of seven balloons each.  Say, four are strings of diamonds and three are strings of circles.  Inflate each string with helium and a weight on only one end of each.  The Roll Balloons stand up side by side to form a decorative curtain behind you.

If you want to invest the time into something more elaborate still, then maybe you take some #260s or #350s and twist them to the Roll Balloon Strings to give it all more of a woven backdrop look.

You could even use the latex balloons to hold the film balloons so that the “front” side of one film balloon shows to the front and then the “back” side of the next film balloon shows to the front.  You could quickly create decorative patterns in your backdrop this way.

I am sure that, as your imagination takes on the challenge, you will create many quick and easy variations.  In each case the Roll Balloons hasten the completion of your backdrop and allow it (or most of it) to be reused later.

.

THE  ADVANTAGES  OF  GIANT  FIGURES

If you are someone who has twisted strings of bubbles to make balloon figures, then you have probably considered doing something similar with strings of Bee Body (#321) balloons, Quick Link Balloons or Link-O-Loons.

These short, double ended balloons are not as versatile in terms of the variations possible in the relative size and shape of their bubbles, but they do allow you to up the scale of your balloon figures.  And, I expect you have seen some of the giant dragons and other huge figures made with Link-O-Loons.

Roll balloons will offer you many of the same options only

  • they will inflate much more quickly,
  • they will already be connected
  • they will last much longer
  • many of them may be reused.

 

THE  ADVANTAGES  OF  ENGAGING  THE  AUDIENCE

Novelty is one of the more engaging aspects of balloon entertainment.  This new kind of balloon that grows so quickly, transforms into such huge figures and lasts so long has built in novelty appeal.

Since Roll Balloons can be so large and are so tough they also offer opportunities for the audience (or selected representatives) to participate in construction of figures using the Roll Balloons.

At a third level, you may extend your audience engagement by leaving a Roll Balloon figure with the audience.  That is, leave one of these large, long lasting figures on display at the school or in the lobby of the institution or arena etc. along with your contract information.

If you want to engage the audience even more, then consider putting up one or more of these long lasting Roll Balloon figures BEFORE for your event to attract attention and prepare the audience to be engaged before you even arrive.

DECORATOR  ADVANTAGES

This new class of balloons offers professional decorators new tools that can make many forms of balloon decorating easier,  faster and more economical than ever before.

If you missed the introduction to what Roll Balloons are, we recommend you pause now and read, “Rolling Out Roll Balloons”. It will get you “up to speed”.

 

RETAILER – DECORATOR

Most of the professional decorating businesses I know also have a retailer component to them.  Sometimes these businesses started as retail operations. Then, the owner discovered that there is good money and a great deal of personal satisfaction from creating decorations for events.

Other times, the business started as a decorator enterprise, maybe even from home.  As the business grew the owner discovered that supplies could be purchased wholesale with a retail license.  The retail side of the business may also have contributed to a broader client base for decorating jobs.

In either case, or your own unique case,  you may have a retailer component to your decorating business.  If so, we suggest that you read “Roll Balloons – Retailer Advantages” to help build that side of your business.

.

THE ARTIST versus THE BUSINESS PERSON

It is common for there to be a tension between the artistic and the business components of professional decorating.  Successful decorators make use of both.

Rouse Roll Balloons offer professional decorators new tools that can make many forms of balloon decorating easier,  faster and more economical than ever before.  And, they allow you to get professional looking results with helpers who have only minimal skills.  The profit potential of such tools is quickly grasped by business minds.

The benefits for artistic minds may be a little less obvious, but they are there in abundance.

  • If you choose, for instance, to use Roll Balloons simply as background to quickly fill a space with color and shapes, then you allow your artistic side more time and resources to create those amazing, decorative jewels that crown the event.
  • If you choose to invest more of your creative energy into the possibilities of this new class of balloon, then you have the potential to create magnificent spaces on a grander scale than would otherwise be possible within your usual budget constraints.  You could become known not only as an artistic decorator, but also as an esthetic architect for events.

 

THE TIME HAS COME FOR
THE ADVANTAGES OF EASIER

  • You will find it easy to incorporate shorter roll balloons of  five to eleven thematic shapes and prints.  They will eventually become widely available in most of the licensed characters and themes you see on the market today.
  • You will find an even bigger contribution to “easy” in the form of  much longer Roll Balloons of basic shapes like hearts, stars, squares, diamonds, circles, crescents, stylized “S”s, etc.. These strings are ones you could literally roll out and cut to the length needed for your venue.
  • The most basic contribution to “easy” is the fact that even the longest of arches can be produced with only the minimum of skills.  Just unroll a string of Roll Balloons and inflate them all at once with an automatic regulator.  Whether you use air, nitrogen or helium; your task is accomplished with miniscule effort compared to inflating all those balloons as individuals and then carefully spacing them and tying them onto some base line so that they all face in the proper direction.

 

 THE TIME HAS COME FOR
THE ADVANTAGES OF FASTER

When each of the tasks above is made easier with Roll Balloons it is also made faster.  Whether you are

  • assembling short strings of thematic shapes and prints
  • constructing large garlands, arches or backdrops or
  • defining sculptured spaces in your venue;

you can get the job done at lightening speeds compared to inflating all those balloons as individuals and then carefully spacing them and tying them onto some base line so that they all face in the proper direction.

 

THE TIME HAS COME FOR
THE ADVANTAGES OF ECONOMY

  • With Roll Balloons you get the economy of “Easier”.  With “Easier” you increase confidence and minimize stress.  You reduce the wear and tear on you, your staff and your customer.
  • The “Easier” of Roll Balloons also brings the economy of minimum skill requirements.
    • You greatly enlarge your possible pool of workers and it becomes so much easier and more economical to fill those “helper” slots, even at the last minute when someone is sick or just does not show up.
    • You also get the economy of lower labor costs, because lower skill requirements are generally accompanied by lower pay.
  • With Roll Balloons you get the economy of “Faster”.  It is a long standing axiom that “Time is money”.  Since Roll Balloons go up faster, you save time and money.
  • With Roll Balloons you get the economy of “Refreshing”.  Even film balloons eventually begin to deflate.  With Roll Balloons it is practical to “refresh” a sagging set of balloons by adding gas to all the balloons at once through a single opening. And, you can do it from the ground without climbing ladders or pulling down your display.
  • With Roll Balloons you can also have the economy of “Recycling”.  It is practical to vacuum out the gas from Roll Balloons and save them for reuse later.  This is rarely practical for sets of individually inflated balloons.

RETAILER ADVANTAGES

“Rouse Roll Balloons offer to reconfigure your most valuable film balloon assets into new forms.  Those new forms will provide greater value to your customers and greater profits to you. Guaranteed!”

Rouse Pre-Linked ROLL Balloon logo/iconTHE TIME HAS COME FOR
RETAILER  ADVANTAGES

This new class of balloons will provide greater value to your customers and greater profits to you. Guaranteed!

If you missed the introduction to what Roll Balloons are, we recommend you pause now and read, “Rolling Out Roll Balloons”.  It will get you “up to speed”.

 

THE GUARANTEE!

We could offer you a money back guarantee, but since you haven’t spent any money, that wouldn’t amount to much.  We DO offer you the guarantee of some simple logic.

  1. When you offer your retail customers more value for their money, they are more likely to buy from you.
  2. When you can provide that greater value at current margins or better, your profits are likely to increase.

.

1.  THE TIME HAS COME FOR
THE ADVANTAGES OF GREATER VALUE TO CUSTOMERS

When you offer your retail customers more value for their money, they are more likely to buy from you.  Roll balloons enable you to give your customers more value for their money.

You can learn details about that greater value for balloon consumers in the earlier article: ROLL BALLOONS – Consumer Advantages, but here is a summary;

  • 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 you.
  • FASTER – At each point where Roll Balloons are easier they are also faster.  They take less consumer time to 1. Inflate, 2. Assemble, 3. Transport, 4. Install and 5. Buy.  Consumers get a greater return on their investment of time as well as money.
  • LONGER LASTING – Arches and garlands made from any film balloons naturally 1. Last much longer than those made from latex balloons. Film balloon arches and garlands configured as Rouse Roll balloons have 2. An even longer useful life, because they are so easily refreshed by adding gas to all balloons at once.
  • REPEATING VALUE  — Roll Balloons may be easily deflated and rolled up for reuse later. They give repeated value for one investment in balloons.

When you provide advantages like these to your customers, you are offering greater value and encouraging customers to come to you to get it.

 

2.  THE TIME HAS COME FOR
THE ADVANTAGES OF MORE PROFITS FOR YOU

When you can provide greater value to your customers at current margins or better, your profits are likely to increase.  Roll balloons will enable you to provide that greater value at your current margins or better.

  • BALLOON COSTS –  Roll Balloon configurations generally require approximately the same amount of film as their single balloon cousins.  Roll Balloons will likely require a little more effort in packaging, but overall less packaging will be required, because more balloons will be sold as a single unit (arch or garland).  Your cost per balloons should remain very close to the same.
  • LABOR COSTS – Your labor costs per balloon sold will go down.  If you were to sell a Roll Balloon arch of just five balloons, you simply unroll the balloons and inflate them all at once.  When the automatic valve cuts off, you are done with all five balloons. You do not have to start over on number two of four remaining balloons to be individually inflated and tied, etc.
  • DISPLAY COSTS – Your requirements for shelf or display rack space will remain about the same.  The packages will be a little thicker but have the same face size.  Live display space requirements will go up a bit so that you can display the whole arch or garland, but your labor costs for that display will be significantly less than a similar number of individual balloons.
  • AVERAGE SALE – Since each Roll Balloon contains multiple balloons, you can expect your average balloon sale to go up and your profits to go up with it.
  • UP SELL – Take advantage of both old and new “add-on” items to up sell your Roll Balloon customers.
    • Each Roll Balloon will come with standard anchors for the ends, whether they be simple weights, clips, sticky tabs or something else.  Offer upgrades to coordinated, decorative items.
    • Offer a selection of audio or light elements to be attached to the Roll Balloon.
    • Suggest a bow or a small latex balloon cluster.
    • Add a heart to the ends or as a center accent to the roll balloon to show that the honored guest at the event loves the topic portrayed in the repeated element of the arch or garland.
  • UPGRADE – With Roll Balloons you have the perfect segue to sell room or event decor rather than just an accent for the occasion.
    • Show customers valuable and economical Roll Balloon options to quickly and easily extend their decor around the whole room or event.
    • Point out your coordinated paper products and other coordinated decorator accessories.
    • Help your customer upgrade their event and you will simultaneously upgrade their view and satisfaction with your offerings.
    • Your satisfied customers with upgraded purchases will prove a valuable source of increased profits.

.

THE TIME HAS COME FOR
THESE ADVANTAGES TO BE YOURS

ROLL BALLOONS are not yet in general production and distribution. But, they can be and likely will be put into production and general distribution if you personally and YOU AS A GROUP OF READERS/RETALERS ask for them.

  • BEST SELLERS – Start with your best selling film balloon designs and ask for them in Roll Balloon configuration.  Just have your supplier contact us at gmr@rousetech.com for licensing. You know your customers like your most popular designs.  Customers should like them even better when they are BIGGER, EASIER, FASTER and LONGER LASTING.
  • DECOR – Follow up by asking for Roll Balloon designs that coordinate with paper products and popular decorating accessories that you also sell.
  • CUSTOM DESIGNS – If your have a large retail operation or are part of a larger buying group or retail chain, you may want to go ahead and have your own, custom Roll Balloons made. Contact us at gmr@rousetech.com. We can help you get the right license and locate production sources.

“Rouse Roll Balloons offer valuable advantages to balloon consumers.  They make balloon decorations and messages
bigger, easier, faster, longer lasting and reusable.”

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Rouse Pre-Linked ROLL Balloon logo/iconTHE  TIME  HAS  COME  FOR
CONSUMER  ADVANTAGES

Rouse ROLL balloons are a new kind of balloon that “make balloon decorations and messages bigger, easier, faster, longer lasting and reusable.” These are great advantages for you.

If you missed the introduction to what Roll Balloons are, we recommend you pause now and read, “Rolling Out Roll Balloons”. It will get you “up to speed”.

 

THE  ADVANTAGES  OF  BIGGER

  • If, for example, you buy a cluster of seven film balloons, they can make a very nice display.  But you can get a bigger display and a bigger impact by stringing them out in an arch or garland across the room.
  • The display area seen at any one time is simply larger when you can see the full face of each balloon.
  • You see less when one balloon is hidden behind another in the cluster or when the edge faces you rather than the message surface.
  • The impact is greater as well. That is both because the display area is larger and because it is easier to see and read any message on the balloons.
  • You simply get more display for your money.

.

THE  TIME  HAS  COME  FOR
THE  ADVANTAGES  OF  EASIER

Easier To Inflate

  • Inflation of Roll Balloons is easier for you or an amateur helper. The balloons inflate all at once instead of inflating individually.
  • Inflation is equally easy for professionals you may choose to hire.

Easier To Assemble.

  • Assembly of balloons is not only easier, it is already done.  Neither you nor a helper nor a balloon professional have to tie the balloons on a line and get the spacing correct.

Easier To Transport

  • Transporting clusters of balloons without tangling is normally difficult. Single line arches and garlands are even more difficult to transport and deliver successfully.
  • Roll Balloons have a natural resistance to tangling.  Any tangles that do occur are easily undone. They are practical for you to transport on your own.
  • These same qualities make Roll Balloons easier for professionals to deliver to you.

Easier To Install

  • Installation of Roll Balloons is easy for you or an amateur helper. Just set the weighted ends where your want them or clip them in place.
  • Installation is equally easy for professionals you may hire.

Easier To Buy

  • Traditional arches and garlands are so difficult to inflate, assemble, transport and install that there are currently few outlets for them.  Generally, you must employ the services of balloon professionals to do the whole job. That will change with the introduction of Roll Balloons into general distribution.
  • Balloon services professionals will have Roll Balloons as options for their set up or for you to do on your own.
  • Most retail outlets that now sell individual inflated balloons will add Roll Balloons to their inventory for your convenience. Most retail outlets do not have space or help with skills to make good arches and garlands. Most retailers also believe that even if they had the space and qualified help, still, sales would falter because most consumers cannot successfully transport and install traditional arches and garlands. That will change with Roll Balloons and you will find them in card shops, party stores, department stores and even your local grocery stores.

.

THE  TIME  HAS  COME  FOR
THE  ADVANTAGES  OF  FASTER

Faster To Inflate

  • Inflation of Roll Balloons is faster for you or an amateur helper. The balloons inflate all at once instead of inflating individually.
  • Inflation is equally fast for professionals you may choose to hire.

Faster To Assemble.

  • Assembly of balloons is not only faster, it is already done.  Neither you nor a helper nor a balloon professional have to tie the balloons on a line and get the spacing correct.

Faster To Transport

  • This new form of balloon does not make your car or truck go faster, but it does make handling balloons faster, because you do not have tangles to deal with…  .  Or, at least, you can deal with the infrequent tangles so much more quickly.
  • These same qualities make Roll Balloons faster for professionals to deliver to you.

Faster To Install

  • Installation of Roll Balloons is quick for you or an amateur helper. Just set the weighted ends where your want them or clip them in place.
  • Installation is equally quick for professionals you may hire.

Faster To Buy

  • You will be able to buy your balloon arches and garlands faster, because they will be available at so many more retail outlets.  You can choose the most convenient location for you. Plus the store staff will be able to inflate them faster and will not have to tie the balloons together.
  • It will be faster when you get your balloon arches and garland through balloon services professionals as well, because they too  will have have more ready access to suppliers of the Roll Balloons and they will be able to inflate and prepare them for you more quickly.

 

THE  TIME  HAS  COME  FOR
THE  ADVANTAGES  OF  LONGER  LASTING

  • Traditionally garlands and arches are made with latex balloons. Latex balloons do not last as long as film balloons, but their lower costs per unit helps to offset the labor costs of skilled workers necessary to construct them.
  • Roll Balloons require a great deal less labor from considerably less skilled workers. This offsets the higher cost of the balloons themselves and produces arches and garlands that last much longer.
  • Roll Balloons not only have a much longer life than latex balloons, they also have a much longer useful life than individual film balloons made into arches and garlands.
    —  Even film balloons go down eventually.  It is possible to disconnect individual film balloons  from support lines, add gas and then reconnect them in order to extend their useful life. This process is such a hassle that hardly anyone does it .
    —  It is easy to add gas to Roll Balloons. Re-inflate all the balloons at once through a single valve.
  • Roll Balloons also have another life extending quality. It is practical to deflate them, store them and reuse them again later.  This is rarely practical with a set of individual film balloons and never done as easily and economically as it could be with Roll Balloons.
  • There is yet another advantage associated with these longer life arches and garlands  made with Roll Balloons. They cost less than comparable displays made with sets of individual film balloons.
    —  The initial cost per film balloon will be about the same, but since the Roll Balloons can be prepared, refreshed and reused with less labor from less skilled workers their total cost is less at each major point in their useful life.

 

FAQ – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

In addition to the advantages to be gained, there are also questions to be answered.  Here are the three most frequently asked consumer questions, so far, about Rouse Roll Balloons.   Chances are good that these questions will come up for you as you consider your plans to use Rouse Roll Balloons.  The numbered questions in bold print are also links to answers.

(1)  What about Price?   How much will it cost to get the benefits of Bigger, Easier, Faster, Longer Lasting and Reusable?

(2)  What about leaks?   Will a leak in one chamber lead to the loss of gas in all chambers? How do you deal with that risk?

(3)  What about the California balloon law?   It is not the law in every state, but it is becoming the national standard for safe practices with film balloons.

ROLLING OUT ROLL BALLOONS

_______________________________________________________________

Rouse Pre-Linked ROLL Balloon logo/iconHead Photo of Graham Rouse with name underneath“Rouse Pre-Linked ROLL Balloons™ offer powerful advantages on decorating tasks carried out every day by professionals and amateurs around the world.” 

_______________________________________________________________

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.

Rouse ROLL Balloon manufacture stamps film to make LINKED 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.

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 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.
