Inflatable arches are among the latest and greatest marketing tools and are gaining popularity because of their unique features.
The best part about these arches? You can get them custom-made to fit your needs. Whether you need a simple design or something more elaborate, there are many options available.
If you're planning to buy an inflatable arch for your next event and are wondering which features are guaranteed to impress, the following are our top five.
Feature #1: Impressive Size Choices
The greater the size of your advertising platform, the more attention it’ll garner.
Luckily, Inflatable arches are commonly between 20 to 30 feet wide—enough to fit across a standard sized road.
The impressive size of larger inflatable arches means more people will see your message.
If you need a smaller inflatable, you can customize its size for your needs, with industry standards running between 10 and 50+ feet wide.
To determine the perfect size for you, think about what you want to use it for.
If you want to use an inflatable arch for advertisement, make sure there's enough room for your logo or slogan. If you're using it at a sporting event and need to put multiple players under the arch, opt for a larger size, to comfortably accommodate as many people as possible.
Feature #2: Custom Design
The best aspect of inflatable arches is that you don't need to settle for an arch with a generic design or one that isn't exactly what you're looking for.
The table below shows the basic inflatable arch customizations and their benefits.
|Company logo||Increases brand awareness by showcasing your business’s logo to the audience
High brand awareness drives performance marketing goals like increasing sales and leads
|Lighting effects||Helps to focus the viewers' attention on your products or event theme
This inspires them to make practical purchase decisions because they are more aware of your products
|Removable banners||They indicate an event's name or mark the "START" and "FINISH" lines in races
The banners are usually draped across the top or on the two 'leg' tubes
|3D Shapes||They represent your brand uniquely by showing what you offer
For example, if you sell beer, you can have the arch's legs shaped like beer bottles to advertise your product
When customizing inflatable arches, use features that match your business or event branding.

The following factors will guide you in choosing the right lighting effects for your inflatable arches:
- Type of Event: Make sure to match the lighting effect on your inflatable arch with the theme and mood of your event.

Meanwhile, bright neon lights, such as green or pink, are perfect for corporate events geared towards younger audiences.
- Purpose of Event: The purpose of your event will also dictate the type of lighting effect you choose for your inflatable arch. If it's a business gathering, you'll want something professional and understated. However, if it's a party or celebration, feel free to go all out with bright colors and flashing lights.
- Type of Lighting: Another consideration is whether or not you want to use LED lights, neon signs, and other forms of lighting effects on your inflatable arch. These types of decorations can be seen from a distance, so it's easier for people who aren't close enough to notice them at nighttime events.

- Event theme: The colors you choose for your inflatable arch should match the event's theme. For example, if your event is a Christmas party, use red and green as your primary colors.
