Where it began..

Talking Balloons began with our parent company, Greenbrook Automations, who are an internationally recognised leader in the manufacture of screen printing and latex dipping machinery. The company has a well-earned reputation throughout the industry for expertise in dipping plant and ancillary equipment.

In 1987, an order was placed for a high end balloon printing machine that was never collected. So in a triumph of turning adversity into success, Talking Balloons was born.

Where we are now..

Over the years we have worked alongside Greenbrook Automations building up a successful name in wholesale/ trade printing and bulk plain balloon and accessory supply.
The time came in December 2019 to expand and evolve to include a larger retail and external decoration presence ensuring we moved with the times within the balloon industry. We moved to our own retail premises on The Green, Hasland.

Talking Balloons aim is simple, to provide competitively priced, high quality balloons and event decorations. We have one the largest balloon selections in Chesterfield which continues to grow!

The Team

Gemma is the Balloon Boss Lady and has worked for Talking Balloons and Company Partners since 2006. She oversees the general running of the business whilst being a jack of all trades, definitely not afraid to get her hands dirty! There is not a thing Gemma doesn’t know about Balloons!

Ellie primarily works in the shop over the weekend, but you may find her helping out in the week. Ellie is often behind our social media and is always willing to help you out with any last-minute request!

Suzanne (on Maternity Leave) is usually behind our Trade Department, in the shop or behind our social media at the beginning of a week. Suzanne loves to bring a new idea to the table and is looking forward to coming back in October.

Aliy has joined us to take over the Trade Department whilst Suzanne is on Maternity leave. She is new to the area having moved here from down south and is looking forward to getting started!

May our Balloon Bunch continue to grow...
