Expert Recommended Features for Your Inflatable Football Helmet Tunnel

A great inflatable football helmet doesn’t just mark the beginning of a high-spirited game. It’s a key part of the subtle yet powerful psychological warfare that surfaces in football, driving success in the game.

In this regard, a football inflatable goes beyond showing off your logo and colors. It drums up the revelry and sense of competition.

The dramatic entrance associated with the inflatable helmet tunnel hypes and engages fans, getting them invested in your team’s success. Inflatables also boost your players’ morale and get their adrenaline flowing, imploring them to rise to the occasion.

That’s why you need to choose a helmet tunnel that’ll make the biggest statement and create a positive, long-lasting impression.

In this article, we’ll discuss four inflatable football helmet tunnel features that’ll help you get things moving in the right direction:

  • Custom printing
  • Heat transfer paper printing
  • Heavy-duty PVC material
  • Ease of set up

Custom Printing

People are drawn to objects that are eye-catching and unique.

Buying a custom printed inflatable football helmet is a sure way to distinguish you from the rival team and enchant the crowd.

For college-level teams, where sports are big business, custom printed football helmet tunnels go beyond aesthetics.

They act as promotional products, strengthening your team's support base and enticing sponsors. 

Treating your fans to a field full of color through a great inflatable football helmet tunnel tells them that your team is invested in the game. In turn, they grow more interested and excited about the football match.

Custom printed inflatable football helmet tunnels also add a sense of occasion to the game, amplifying the sports experience. 

Not only that, but giant football inflatables help you to direct the audience’s attention.

Sporting events are buzzing with activity—characterized by excessive noise and confusion. 

Keeping everything organized and making sure that people direct their attention to the right objects and places can be a daunting task.

That’s where inflatable football helmets come in. The tunnels ensure that the crowds automatically shift their attention to the players when they emerge from the inflatables.

Objects placed next to your custom inflatables are more likely to be noticed by a huge proportion of the audience. Thus, inflatable football helmets provide you with an opportunity to show off the items you consider important by acting as visual cues.

An ideal custom inflatable tunnel should:

  • Be event relevant
  • Not exceed your budget
  • Show off your football team’s logo and colors
  • Create interest without countering your overall message and intent

Heat Transfer Paper Printing 

While custom printing is a great idea, using the wrong printing technique can sabotage your efforts.

You want a football helmet tunnel that:

  • Doesn’t fade
  • Has a continuous tone
  • Has high-resolution graphics

That’s why it’s important to ensure that your custom inflatable tunnel is branded using the heat transfer paper printing technique.

It's one of the best printing techniques. In fact, there’s a high chance that your favorite flip flops, mouse pads, floor mats, bathing suits, or inflatables have been printed using this method. 

The process is straightforward. First, your design is printed onto the specialist heat transfer paper by laser or ink. Next, the transfer paper is pressed against the material and heat is used to transfer the design onto it.

Below is an inflatable football helmet printed with the heat transfer paper technique.

Heavy-Duty PVC Material

Another thing to look out for is the fabric of your inflatable football helmet. 

Building materials influence your inflatable football helmet regarding:

  • Durability
  • Malleability
  • Flammability
  • Safety

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), ticks all the right boxes, making it our favorite material for different types of sports inflatables.

In its original form, PVC is hard and brittle. But when you add plasticizers, it becomes extremely flexible. However, its new flexibility doesn’t reduce its original strength, making it an excellent material for inflatable football helmets.

Let’s look at some of the major benefits of choosing PVC-based inflatables.

Features of PVC material Benefits of using PVC-based inflatable football helmets
PVC is versatile in nature You can choose from a wide range of tunnel styles and designs.
PVC is light You can set up, move, and store your inflatable football helmet with ease.
PVC is durable You won't have to undergo unforeseen costs in repair and replacements. In the long run, therefore, PVC inflatable football helmets are cheap.
PVC is fire retardant and chemical resistant Your inflatable football helmet won’t be dissolved or destroyed by chemicals and oils. The inflatable also doesn’t pose major risks when exposed to fire as it can extinguish itself.
PVC is strong If it rains or is windy during a match, your football helmet won’t be destroyed.

Ease of Inflatable Football Helmet’s Set-up

Buying an inflatable football helmet that doesn’t inflate easily defeats the purpose. So, try to get a giant inflatable that two people can set up in less than ten minutes.

One way to determine whether an inflatable football helmet will be quick to set up is by examining it for heavy-duty metal parts. Such tunnels are harder and slower to set up.

Luckily, most inflatable football helmets can be set up with a simple electric blower or hand pump. To give our clients the ultimate experience, MVP Visuals provides a free storage bag, state kit provision, air blower, and rope.

But with all the activities that precede football matches, a simple task like inflating a football tunnel before the games start can be daunting.  

So, if you’d rather set up your inflatable giant once and leave it untouched for days, go for sealed-air tunnels. Once filled with air, these inflatable football helmets remain in this state for days.

While constant air inflatable football helmets are easy to set up, they need a blower to keep up. That could mean attending to your inflatable more times than you’d like to.
