All our balloons come with string and weight, delivered inflated with helium and finished with ribbon in a tissue paper-lined box. The balloon will release from the box when opened!
The balloon has a float time of approximately 1 week (best has been for over 4 weeks), but this can vary hugely depending on how and where they are kept. Keeping it at room temperature will ensure it looks its best for the longest period of time. However, the text may start bubbling after 2-3 days.
