I have picked up some great ideas from this UK mag. Very interesting to
see just how different the British operate compared to the USA and
Australian balloon industries. I have been very successful in adopting a
few innovative things I've learned from our peers in "Mother England".
From what I've seen, their balloon work is as good as any in the world.

With a copy of this trade mag - along with Images, Weddings With Style,
Balloons & Parties and BNFT ..... we all have (at our fingertips) the
most up-to-date trade advice - products available - business tips -
convention info - balloon techniques - marketing methods and photos to
provide creative inspiration ..... constantly. I find that the total
cost of annual subscriptions can often be recouped from just ONE idea I
learn from these essential trade "bibles". Enjoy the read and don't
forget to mention that you heard about them from a guy in Australia.
