Our Return Policy

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept returns, in MOST cases, due to very high shipping costs! However, we will work with you the best we can to solve any problems that arrise. In rare circumstances, we may allow you to return balloons fully at your cost to ship MINUS the cost to ship your order out (our cost, not what you were charged).

Why are so many items out of stock?

At the onset of Covid-19, a world-wide balloon shortage quickly occurred due to latex and many raw material shortages. Currently, staff shortages nationwide are still affecting the balloon shortage. More and more product is becoming available today in 2023, but we still deal with many delays from all vendors! Please know, if it is online and out of stock, a backorder IS in place OR the item is may not have a restock date. We would be glad to email you when items are coming in.
