Default Printed Vs. Non-Printed
Which do you love more: printed balloons or plain-colored (no print) balloons? If you love printed balloons, do you have a favorite print?

I like printed, especially ones that say "blow me til I pop". Some favorite prints of mine are "Club Steffi" (wish they would come back) and the "Sex, Love" ones currently available on Kathy-Balloons.

I like almost any balloons, but I adore making/watching prints get bigger..........

Prints are always my preferred ones. I usually love the cute prints so like ones based on kids shows or Disney characters, but also the old school smiley balloons will always be my absolute favorites

90% of my loons over the years have been plain but a pattern like qualatex stars is fun because you can watch it stretch and bulge pleasingly.

I like printed a bit more. I like seeing the print distort as I bounce on the balloon. I like happy birthday prints for some reason though others are nice too.

Definitely printed! Even better if they are advertisement balloons

I do like to see printed words, images being distorted and stretched under the strain of either sitting on or squeezing a balloon. Nice!!!

Printed balloons have a bit of insurance over plain balloons although they cost a bit more. They have been inflated to around 75o/o for the printing process which weeds out the faulty balloons. So less likely to burst on you while blowing them up. Of course there are some folks who take them too far to see if they can put just one more breath in and BANG it's no more.
