About Aerial Signs

Blimps, Spheres, Large Balloons....Inflatables of all sizes and types

Aerials in all shapes and sizes are the largest group of MSI service products and can be used in a variety of ways. Large aerials can be flown 7/24, with periodic maintenance, weekends only or daily with support staff to take on the flight and retrieval process.

Smaller balloon displays can be used with WEDs (weekend directionals), attached to fences or other stationary objects, as special event arches or entrances; the uses are as varied as one’s imagination.

Choosing MSI allows you to schedule your service knowing that everything from initial balloon ordering, providing helium, filling, flying and retrieval can be handled by the MSI team.
