To print onto baloons you need to use a flexible latex ink but it needs to be screen printed onto the baloon when it is inflated, cured then deflated.

For glass you can pad print, you will need to add a glass hardener or silane to your ink to cure it. you will also achieve better adhesion if it is baked. You also have to ensure that there is no coating on the glass prior to printing.

I supply Visprox Inks here in Australia and we have inks that will do both these jobs. In America contact Printex. They are th US agents for this ink
