WHAT AREA DOES CHARMPOP BALLOON DESIGNS SERVE?
Portland, Oregon and the surrounding area for the most part. Travel is an option for an extra fee.
HOW IS CHARMPOP BALLOON DESIGNS DIFFERENT?
I really want to create a whole mood around my designs and I like to challenge myself. I have a history in art, design, crafting, and DIYing so I really can take a design to the next level when given free reign.
WHY DON'T YOU LIST PRICES?
Prices are a very hard thing to put on designs in this industry. There are many factors such as balloon colors (prices vary), balloon sizes, price fluctuations and availability in supplies, amount needed, complexity of design, rental or frame price, etc. I'm working to streamline the quote process, but I honestly enjoy coming up with ideas with my clients too.
DO YOU CHARGE FOR INSTALLATION AND DELIVERY OF THE DESIGNS?
Installations of designs are free unless very extensive or at a time that isn't usual (e.g. the middle of the night for a morning surprise), . Delivery cost is dependent on location to cover gas and vehicle expenses.
CAN I PICK UP MY CHARMPOP DESIGN AND INSTALL MYSELF?
It depends. If it's a simple design to install, then you are free to pick it up from my home office and do it yourself. You'll have to provide your own way of hanging it such as command hooks (I attach ties). If it's a more complex or large design, I highly recommend a professional install.
WHAT KIND OF BALLOONS DOES CHARMPOP USE?
I use high-quality, biodegradable balloons that are purchased from a balloon wholesaler that only sells to companies. I do not like to use cheap balloons or kits as those balloons are thin, smell like chemicals, don't last long, can be faulty, and are harder to work with. The brands I work with are companies such as Qualatex, Betallatex, Tuftex, and Sempertex.
CAN I BUY AN ONLINE BALLOON KIT FOR CHARMPOP BALLOON DESIGNS TO PUT TOGETHER FOR ME?
If there are certain elements of an online kit that you want as part of your design, I can acquire those pieces through my balloon supplier or other reputable online retailers and add to my high-quality balloon design.
DOES CHARMPOP BALLOON DESIGNS DO OTHER DECOR SUCH AS LARGE FLOWERS, LIGHTS, BACKDROPS, ETC.?
Yes! If there's something else you are interested in adding to your balloon designs, please let me know. I'm open to crafting other special elements for your occasion as well as buying items and renting to you.
DOES CHARMPOP BALLOON DESIGNS HAVE SET HOURS?
For the most part, CharmPop operates during normal business hours. However if you want to send a message anytime, do so. If you want a design set up at midnight, it can be done for an additional fee. Hours aren't listed on this site due to the schedule revolving around the client.
HOW LONG WILL A CHARMPOP BALLOON DESIGN LAST?
The high-quality balloons used in my designs can last up to a month or longer if kept indoors in a temperature controlled environment (not over a fireplace or in a garage or attic for example). They will start to lose shine and volume during this time and there may be some deflated balloons. Balloons that are used for outdoor events have a much shorter timespan as the air, heat, cold, wind, etc. can take a toll on the look of the balloons.
DOES CHARMPOP BALLOON DESIGNS OFFER BALLOONS OR KITS THAT I CAN PUT TOGETHER MYSELF?
If you have a custom design in mind and you want someone to make it for you, this is the place. While some companies may offer DIY kits for you to take home, I want to provide an experience. I want to do the work so you don't have to. I offer more than balloons, I offer expertise and ease.
HOW IS CHARMPOP BALLOON DESIGNS HANDLING COVID19?
If you prefer a mask is worn in your home, I'm more than happy to do so. If you desire to pick up your design and install yourself due to safety concerns, I'm happy to set up a pick up or drop off without professional install and walk you through set up if needed.
