Continental Sales



Hello Ladies, I wanted to send you a letter of thanks for everything that you do for me. Thank you very much for the time and energy you put into every order. Without you gals I would be lost trying to search down everything I need. I just wanted to let you know that I really do appreciate all you do for me. I know that money is never enough and thank you notes dont pay the bills but I appreciate your continued work even for the little guy like me.

Sincerely, Bruce Walker, Yuba City, CA

I really have to say, I deal with Balloon Distributors all over the globe. Rifco, Latex Occidental, Tuf Tex, etc, etc... and of all of them, anywhere - you guys are the friendliest, most professional and easiest to work with. I just want you to know how much I really appreciate doing business with you....

Lorinda & Lorna, Thank you so much for all your kindness and having me teach at Continental. It was a great pleasure getting to know you both, I really enjoyed our conversations and admire the way you run your business. You are doing a great job. Hope to see you again.

There are two good reasons that some of the largest balloon decorating companies in the world buy their balloons from Continental Sales: Lorinda and Lorna! They stay on top of the industry, often debuting new products before any other distributor. Their knowledge combined with their dedication to decorators results in the superior personal service every business should strive for.

Adventure Balloons is a family business. We do both decorating & entertainment (twisting) with balloons. Continental Sales has been a big help with our business. Although we are far away they have been able to give us great service by phone. If we can get our order in before noon we get it the next day UPS. Their prices are the best we have found. We actually use a lot of balloons for a company our size so the various price breaks helped us a lot. They also have the knowledge for helping decorators. A few times I didn't quite know how to pull something together. I'd give them a call & they were always able to help. Once they weren't able to give me the answer I wanted but they offered different suggestions and I actually used their suggestion instead because I liked it better than mine.

Thank you Continental Sales!!! I know everytime I place an order with your company I can count on excellent service. I just want you to know how nice it is to trust a company that I can count on. I truly mean that.

An excellent source for the growing artists needs is Continental Sales. Lorinda offers excellent customer service, and a full line of decorator type stuff; like rounds all the way up to 6', including the rainbow agates, the polka dots, and the spray decorated globes. In addition to all this, Lorinda has a line of custom prints on 5" rounds just for twisters - skulls, flames, and more. She is extremely receptive to any ideas, ships promptly, and if she was a brand of balloon, I'd definitely buy her!

...unbelievable customer Lorinda at Continental Sales. She is every bit as dedicated to making you happy (which, by the way, is not the same as 'satisfied' - satisfied is a wimpy customer service goal)...and she has all that cool deco stuff twisters are finally starting to get wise to.

Well, I just got my first order ever from Continental Sales, and I must say that I am so happy with everything, they are my new primary supplier. (not that I am such a big customer!) At first I thought not being able to order from the web was a bad thing, until I got to talk to Lorinda. Why order from the cold heartless web when you can get such great personal service? And their prices are right! I don't think I've ever paid so little for a small order of balloons.

Seriously, if you've never checked Continental Sales out, give them a try. I really think you'll be delighted with them.

I am Amanda Core and I approved this message.

Lorinda my friend,

I wanted to send you this picture and tell you THANK YOU again for your TOP NOTCH customer service. I can always count on you for when I need product. Your professionalism & awesome customer service is much appreciated. Enclosed is a picture of a last minute request that we wouldn't of been able to do if it wasn't for Continental Sales. Thank you again for being the best in what you do! :-)

BTW- Our customer was VERY PLEASED with the outcome!

Dear Lorinda,

Here's the bus made from your expedited shipment of last week.  You saved the day and I really appreciate it.  There were 3000 vistitors through the Strong National Museum of Play and I had only 8 hours to construct the bus.  

Thank you so much for always answering the phone, getting my orders right and keeping such a wide variety of inventory.  You are truly a star and Continental is lucky to have you.
