Catalog - Connect-a-Dot Instructions
This product is not presently available in the United States.
The newest, most innovative, product in years!
Connect-A-Dot was first introduced in the United States by Continental Sales in 2004.
Continental Sales started investigating this product in the fall of 2003. We were so impressed, we imported it ourselves from Brazil. We knew the decorator market needed Connect-a-Dot! Now the product is available from Pioneer Balloon Company in coordinating colors.
What is so great about Connect-a-Dot? Connect-a-Dot can handle huge temperature changes required for outside decor and won't oxidize. Connect-a-Dot can be made into shapes and structures with little or no framing. You no longer have to turn down jobs that want outdoor decor. Be the first to wow your customers with Connect-a-Dot!
The Dot Shape is a 14" Round with 4 tabs. Watch the instructions for how to inflate. Notice when he demonstrates over-inflating the balloon, that it gets larger and larger, but does not pop. This is why it handles outside temperature changes so well!
This plastic must be stretched thin to tie securely. If you have problems with leaking, most likely problems are not stretching the plastic thin enough not not tying the knot in the stretched section.
Connect the Dots into panels that are rigid and can be used to contruct shapes. You can cut off extra tabs as long as it's not the one that seals the balloon.
The Connector is a diamond shape that can be used with the Dot to create interesting designs.
