Leads on mass produced giant mylar balloons

Looking for a place to try to get 1.8 meter mylar balloons made, maybe eventually for inclusion in the balloon mapping kit.

Finally... but darn, not the right kind of DIY Photo balloons, haha:


Anyways, I'm writing to them asking:

I am with a company selling science kits and we need a bulk order of 180cm wide circular mylar foil balloons. Can you produce these in 1000-5000 unit quantities?

Close enough to the truth... :-)


I love the militarized cow balloon. Reminds me of this. :)

Followup: @patcoyle eventually found some 36" mylar balloons which are quite affordable: https://publiclab.org/notes/patcoyle/09-07-2015/mobius-non-fish-eye-and-small-lifter-wrapup
