How many balloons in 1hr?

Post by FUNtasy on Wed Jul 02, 2014 8:10 am

So far I do face painting but it happened several times people ask me to do balloon twisting and well since these is my source of income I started to get ready for a new service in my business.
and there is a question that hope some one can answer me:
How many balloons do you offer per hour? or how the balloon twisting hour works?

Hi, my husband is our twister, we charge a flat rate for an hour and aim to cover all the kids in that space of time, some kids get a few more, thing is as they are only 1p a balloon we can get away with doing several per kid.

I had the distinct pleasure of hiring Megan from Clownarific to come balloon for an event where I was face painting and I think she must have twisted 900 balloons in 2 hours.

Actually, that isn't exactly right - but, working side by side w/talented twisters I have to say, they are SPEED DEMONS. I can't believe how many they get done in a short time. It can be less than a minute a balloon and what the make is fabulous.

I'm a newbie, if I stick to 5 designs or so, I can do 40+ in an hour.

I gauge estimates by what the client wants--ask themelaborate or simple, themed or guest's choice?

Honestly, is usually ends up with the same basic choices kids are used to asking for if you go wth the guests' choice.

My suggestion would be to estimate your capabilities low on your bid, and then do an awesome job that will secure you a long-time client.

Thank you guys for your comments I am just starting this new service, and I just got my first gig, I am not that fast yet and I am just nervous about how many balloons the clients expect you do in 1 hr, I am kind of fast (no that much) at doing 2 kind of doggies and bunnies, I have learn other designs like princess crown, duck, penguin and dinosaur and even when I am able to make them with no problem the last ones take me I will say quite long for a waiting line.
I am hopping to get a few birthday parties so I can practices more without too much pressure.

I charge the same hourly rate as i do for face painting.
I can make prolly 15 nice balloons in an hour. and prolly 25 fast ones in an hour. but some times the kids are not sure what they want or they can't make up their mind on a color that will slow you down sometimes as well.
