CREATE A CUSTOM SHAPE MadeWithBalloons & BalloonGrids

A Custom Shaped Logo #MadeWithBalloons™ and #RouseMatrix™ #BalloonGrids and #RouseAPPS™ techniques

.

RAPP-IT-003-RIpurple

THE BASIC PROCESS
for producing a custom shaped logo #MadeWithBalloons™ and #BalloonGrids is simple.

.

(1) Sketch It
(2) Load It
(3) Trim It

Logos are a great balloon decorating idea. Some logos are certainly more complex and difficult to produce than others, but the basic process is straightforward. You can see that in our example today shared with us by Jill Shortreed from the Charleston Balloon Company. The Charleston Balloon Company does some fine balloon decorating in Charleston South Carolina, USA. Visit them at http://charlestonballooncompany.com .

.

(1) SKETCH IT

The first step is to sketch a balloon layout based on the original logo. The Philadelphia Flyers logo is shown below on the left and the Charleston Balloon Company sketch on the right.

Flyer-logo-sketch-design-01-4

In this case they worked to keep the design within the borders of four of the Rouse Matrix™ Banner panels. Each panel is about 3′ by 3′. Their design gives them a finished logo about 6′ wide and 5′ tall.

You can download the same RMS™ Banner graph paper to plan designs of your own. If you decide to build your design, you may order the RMS™ Banners online from the RMS™ Store. Or, you may prefer to order from an RMS™ distributor nearer to you.

.

Philadelphia Flyers logo(2) LOAD IT

Stretch open the RMS balloon frames & load balloons according to your layout.

The second step is to load balloons into the frame in the same pattern as your layout sketch.

Currently, the most common (Classic) way of loading balloons is to tie balloons in pairs and to load each balloon of a pair into an adjacent opening as illustrated in the animation to the right. There are other loading methods that you may find useful as well. Watch for other articles about options for loading balloons.

.

.

(3) TRIM IT

Trim off Matrix straps outside of sections touching balloons.

The third step is to trim off the excess Matrix around the balloons that form your design. Just be sure to protect the portions of the Matrix that touch and immediately surround the balloons.

You can do your cutting with standard scissors.

If you should cut one of the straps in the wrong place, you can make repairs by (1) Place the cut ends back together. (2) Use a standard office stapler to staple twice across the joint. (3) Make sure the ends of the staples curl under and in toward each other. (4) This should hold without popping balloons, but you may wrap the stapled joint in clear tape for extra protection and a smoother finish.

.

YOUR TURN

.Give it a try yourself.

.

(1) Sketch a simple (to begin with) design onto the honeycomb graph paper. Download RMS™ Banner graph paper to plan your designs.

.
(2) Load balloons into RMS Banner balloon grid frames according to your design. Get your Banners online at the RMS Store in Ballooniverse Mall.

.
(3) Trim away the excess framing. You have your first custom shape MadeWithBalloons™.

I hope you enjoy it, impress your friends and then go out and sell lots of custom shapes MadeWithBalloons™ and balloon grids.

BLUE TEDDY MadeWithBalloons

.

RouseAPPS™ logo light blue

Blue Teddy #MadeWithBalloons™

 

This Teddy Bear design opens our #RouseAPPS™ Gallery of Creatures. It is a good candidate for construction with the patented, RouseAPPS STRONG (double layer) technique to achieve double the volume and 20 times the strength of single layer construction.

This construction method gives you a space between layers to easily hide reinforcement elements should you want to stand up the bear from below.

At the same time, the bear is stiff enough to keep its shape while suspended in the air without rigid reinforcing elements.

The soft, flexible #RouseMatrix™ framework weighs only about as much as the balloons so the display may be easily and safely suspended from above.

This particular design is intended for construction with four RMS™ Banner panels (2 packages) using balloons inflated 4″ in diameter. .The same basic shape could be made larger or smaller by using RMS frames of different sizes and matching  balloon sizes.

Create your own custom bear shape (or other custom shape) with Rouse Matrix using the .(1) Sketch It, (2) Load It, (3) Trim It method described in this linked article featuring a project by Jill Shortreed. “How To Create A custom Shaped Logo #MadeWithBalloons™.

(Jill says of RMS™, If you have never used this product – it is awesome.

The black lines on the bear are # 260 balloons that are attached on top of the round balloons in the RMS™ #BalloonGrids..

Here is a brief demonstration of RouseAPPS STRONG technique using RMS™ Banners.

CELEBRATING 33 & LAUNCHING 34

Happy 33rd Balloon Birthday Graham Rouse with 10 ft., three layer cake MadeWithBalloons™ & Rouse Matrix™ builders

 

cropped-RAPP-IT-003.jpgCELEBRATING 33

I count the first two weeks in February 1983 as my BALLOON BIRTHDAY. That is when I picked up a bag of twistie balloons at a drug store along with instructions on how to make a balloon poodle.

I practiced and then added a balloon dog to a special greeting card I designed for a friend in the hospital for Valentines.

The next 33 years have been quite an adventure thanks to you. I have gotten to make up all kinds of fun stuff with balloons. I have gotten to travel and teach and exhibit and publish around the world. And I have gotten to meet extraordinary, fun, friendly, creative people everywhere I have been.

So, as I celebrate my 33rd Balloon Birthday this year, I pause to say “Thank You!” to all of you balloon enthusiasts for what we have shared in the past and for the even more exciting things we will share in the years to come.

.

LAUNCHING 34

This anniversary moment also marks the beginning of those even more exciting things as I begin year 34.

This year (2016) i will be launching RouseAPPS™ for the balloon industry at large.

RouseAPPS ™ is an exceptionally valuable suite of patented technologies that have been restricted in the past to use with Rouse branded balloon grid frames. That changes in 2016.

 RouseAPPS™ (Applications of Patented ProcedureS invented by Graham Rouse) will be made available for use with every brand and type balloon grid frame by those who subscribe to membership in the RAPPS GrROUP™.

The formal launch of RAPPS GROUP is scheduled for July 2016, but limited Beta memberships are scheduled to open in late March at a substantial discount in order to test and refine the membership program.

RAPPS GROUP membership comes with a 30 day “Try It And Love It Or Leave It Within 30 Days With A Full Refund” satisfaction guarantee..

Get on the “INTERESTED” list for Beta Membership now by sending an email to gmr@rouseapps.com with “INTERESTED” in the subject line. We will add you to the “RouseABOUT Your Success” newsletter  email list and notify you when RAPPS GROUP memberships open up.

RouseAPPS™ BIRTHDAY CAKE

The 10 foot diameter balloon birthday cake above illustrates two RouseAPPS.

(1)  The RouseAPPS SIMPLE technique was used to build this cake as part of the 20th anniversary IBAC (International Balloon Arts Convention) event. IBAC was the precursor to the World Balloon Convention.

The video immediately below demonstrates the patented SIMPLE technique using RMS™ Banners. This technique is also very effective with other Rouse-Expand-And-Load™ (REAL™) balloon frames. And, it works beautifully with Pioneer Gridz, with SDS™, and with DIY balloon grids as well. Video demonstrations and instructions for non-Rouse balloon grid frames will be available to RAPPS GROUP members.

RouseAPP™ SIMPLE technique (2:30)This is a short (2.5 min.) video demonstration of the RouseAPP™ SIMPLE technique for loading balloons into Rouse Matrix™ Expand-And-Load™ balloon grid frames.

Posted by Rouse Matrix on Wednesday, October 14, 2015

(2)  The RouseAPPS FAST technique is an alternate approach to loading balloons to build this cake. The cake would look the same, but balloons could be loaded 2 to 10 times faster.

The FAST technique (also known as “Speed Graphics” is demonstrated in the video below. with RMS™ Banners. Video demonstrations and instructions for non-Rouse balloon grid frames will be available to RAPPS GROUP members.
