We often hit the road, traveling
Iowa and the rest of the country on regional and national balloon
marketing campaigns. We visit hot air balloon festivals, sports

for the balloon program.

frequency of appearances can be custom-tailored in your own
program. We're capable of managing and coordinating any size
local, regional or national corporate balloon or airship program.
We allow you to be involved with the campaign as much or as
little as possible. If you'd rather let us handle everything,
that is fine also.

the quickest and least expensive type of balloon advertising.
Here is the UPS Balloon. It had a "Next Day",
"2 Day" and a "3 Day" banner.
This was a highly successful campaign.
Balloon banners are the most
basic and inexpensive of all our advertising options. Banners
are a great starting point for a smaller or medium-sized company
to test the waters of hot air balloon marketing before making
a significant investment on a balloon of their own.
Our hot air balloons can
be adorned with up to three 17' by 28' fabric banner prominently
displayed for countless thousands of people to see each time
the balloon flies. These banners fit the shape of the balloon
precisely, giving the impression that the artwork is sewn directly
into the balloon fabric.
Your company name and logo
will be skillfully reproduced in exact proportions by our graphic
folks. For most designs, we will
use paint or sewn fabric to recreate your logo. If photorealistic
results are desired, large-format inkjet printing can be harnessed
to provide the necessary resolution. These days, there's nothing
that can't be done!
Once your banners are installed
on our balloon, we will fly in the target market of your choice
to generate positive exposure.

The standard corporate balloon
program utilizes a traditionally-shaped "round" balloon
with company logos or product artwork applied or sewn directly
onto the fabric of the balloon. The advanced methods of balloon
construction today allow for any possible concept to be turned
into a flying work of art that will turn heads and promote goodwill
at every appearance.
Shape Hot Air Balloons
For the ultimate advertising
campaign, sometimes the use of a specially-shaped hot air balloon
is called for. Products, characters, mascots and logos can all
be recreated in larger-than-life scale and with highly accurate
detail. With the help of computer-assisted design (CAD) and
high-powered physics software, it's possible to translate nearly
any conceivable shape into a high-flying work of art.
Owner/Chief Pilot Dan Campbell
has been flying and managing many advertising balloon programs,
having flown for 95KGGO, Z93, Car-X Brake and Muffler, United
Parcel Service, Wonderbra and since 1999 the RE/MAX Balloon.
In 2004, Dan stepped into
the special shapes field by being asked to fly the America
One, the US Flag Balloon in Albuquerque New Mexico by Barry
and Teri DiLibero. The US Flag balloon stands a height
of 53 feet and 78 feet wide! The nylon balloon fabric alone
weighs 530 pounds! A crew of 10-20 is required to set up and
pack away this super sized balloon. Click

America One hot air balloon team.
|Burnie the Little
Devil Balloon soars over Albuquerque New Mexico.
In early 2006, Dan purchased
the Little Devil Balloon" which stands 125 feet tall
and is 49 feet wide and weighs 475 pounds! We are currently
looking for a sponsor for "Burnie". Email
us for more information here!
| The "Octopus
Garden" is a prime example of a appendage shape balloon.
If a full-fledged special
shape such as "Burnie" isn't quite what you have in
mind, there's another option. A step above a normal round balloon,
appendage balloons can be built for a fraction of the
price of a special shape for much of the same effect.
The experts at Z-Balloon
Adventures can manage your own regular or special shape
hot air balloon program, beginning with initial design concepts
and continuing all the way through to completion and a nationwide
advertising campaign. Email
