The military first used balloons for transportation, ways of communication, as well as scientific experiments.  Then in 1824 a fellow by the name of Michael Faraday constructed the first rubber balloons in a laboratory, though they weren’t as close to the balloons we know of today.  It wasn’t until 1847 when British inventor, Thomas Hancock, used vulcanized rubber creating something stronger and more elastic than its predecessor.  In the late 19th century the New York Times published an article on the balloon’s industrial potential.  It wasn’t until 1907 that U.S. would start manufacturing balloons and throughout the 20th century they started to be used for business, party favors, balloon animals, you name it.  When the 1970’s hit, foil balloons came to be which were perfect for putting graphics and messages on them like “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”.

Rubber balloons are here to stay

Balloons are a blast and they’re not going away anytime soon.  They’re as ubiquitous as flowers when it comes to graduations and birthdays.  Let alone anniversaries or showing a loved one that you’re thinking of them.
