about Tuf-Tex® products

Outdoors, there are 4 seasons, all of them hard on balloons. Summer is too hot, spring is too wet, winter is too cold, and autumn is too windy for most balloons. Except for Tuf-Tex, the best balloon for outdoor displays. Tuf-Tex balloons are engineered to be tough, and still look good. They stand up in the hot, the cold, and everything in between. These balloons are intended to go places other balloons just can't survive. If you use Tuf-Tex, you know how good they are - if you don't use Tuf-Tex, here's a chance to win a box of balloons that will make your next outdoor job more successful!

Tuf-Tex balloons are engineered for challenging displays - like outdoors, or store front windows. Tuf-Tex balloons are available in the most popular 5", 9", 11", and 14" sizes. When you want tough and big, use the jumbo 17" and 36"balloons. The Tuf-Tex collection comes in colors and styles - Pastel, Metaltone, Crystal, and Pearlized - that make flowers jealous. You can get all over imprints, wrap imprints, or two sided imprints to give more kick to your message, and for the customer that wants to see their message in the display, Tuf-Tex does custom imprinting too.
