What are the aprons made of and how can I clean them?

We make our aprons of durable 600 Denier Polyurethane Coated fabric. This gives the fabric great strength and minimizes wrinkles and repels many fluids.. You can wash your apron in warm water, hand washing prefered, many machines will work as well. Line dry

Can a Twist‘em Up apron be customized?

 You can change the width of the buckle and waistband form one inch wide to two inches. Colors can be mixed and matched to create the perfect apron to go with your costume or clothes. The newest thing that has been requested is adding an extra row of balloon strips to an apron. (Between 160′s, 260′s, 350′s and now the new neons, there are just so many balloons.) We have a whole page devoted to some of the custom items we have created.

How many balloons can the Balloon Strips hold?

Each loop on a balloon strip can comfortably hold around 50 of the 260 type balloons. Hans from the Netherlands routinely puts in 70. Navigate to the Strips page to learn more.

Does the hook and loop on the Balloon Strips damage the balloons?

The hook part of the Hook and Loop is made with hundreds of tiny little nylon “hooks” that are shaped sort of like a question mark “?”. The end of the hook actually points down. This is so if something fuzzy (like the loop half) comes up against it, the fuzz will go between the little hooks and get stuck on them. Latex is not terribly fuzzy, so when it does rub across the hooks, it is only touching the curved part, or top of the hook.

We have rubbed and rubbed balloons against the hook with a lot of pressure to see if there was damage to the latex, but we did not find any when we blew the balloons up.

Is there any place else I can get a Twist ‘em Up apron?

There are a few companies that carry our aprons. T. Myer’s has a line of economy aprons (without the balloon strips),in addition to most of our standard items.   If your balloon supplier doesn’t carry our aprons yet, ask them to send a request.

I do not live in the United States, can I still get a Twist ‘em Up apron sent to me?

We ship internationally. Just let us know where you live and what you want, and we can use that information to get a shipping quote. We are usually able to offer a few different shipping options that you can choose from depending on your budget and time frame.

How secure are the Balloon Strips?

We now use 1″ wide Hook and Loop on our Balloon Strips to secure the balloons. When you press it in around the balloons, it stays where you put it. If, after you have used a lot of one color, you forget to press in or adjust your loop, balloons can fall into the bottom of your apron. This can happen easier when you load 50-70 balloons per loop. To avoid this, make sure the loop is tight when you load. Some of the loop may overlap the one next to it, but that is okay.

I want to sell these aprons in my store. How can I get more information on wholesale?

Just ask. Let us know what you are looking for and we can give you a quote. We can even design something special just for your store or company. Contact us through the contact page to set up a wholesale account.
