Custom Designs

Our Custom Inflatables are a cut above the rest- utilizing a specially developed material to make them better-looking and longer- lasting than anything that's come before them. We have done huge custom projects for world-leading entertainment companies and the largest amusement parks in the world. We've also designed and sewn custom inflatables for Broadway shows, operas, and historic international sporting events. Have an idea for a custom inflatable? Give us a call- we'd love to make your idea come to life.


DriveAround Parade Floats

The DriveAround is a revolutionary concept in parade entertainment. It provides large-scale, crowd-pleasing, fantastic float design in a modular structure so compact that it ships UPS.

The DriveAround has unlimited design options, easy set-up, and is great fun to drive. A universal base supports structures up to 30′ long and 12′ wide. It even includes a remote control option.

We have several parade float rental options. Additionally, the DriveAround can support custom designs as spectacular as your imagination.

Inflatable Race Arches

You may think that Race Arches are a commodity: boring and utilitarian. However, Signs & Shapes has re-envisioned Race Arches. We have made them better looking, easier to use, more durable, and even glow in the dark!Signs & Shapes is creating race arches as cool as your races- from our no-rope design options and clever shipping/storage containers to internal lighting and zippered modular designs.

Lighted Race Arch


Our polyurethane-coated nylon is the most fantastic and versatile inflatable fabric on the face of the planet, and at the core of 99% of our inflatable projects. Our fabric is more than twice as strong as industry standard inflatable fabrics – it also has superior hydro-static properties and is formulated to be easy to clean. We also excel in sourcing unique, perfect-fit components and materials for creative applications.


We thrive on delivering astounding results for challenging projects requiring high technical skill, intense creative capabilities, or solving confounding logistics. We bring a freshness to inflatable design. Even “normal” projects are treated to clever innovation, looking and working better than anything ever produced before.


We’ve collaborated on projects in 73 countries, including foreign governments, Broadway shows, and the world’s biggest amusement parks. Our work has also been used in vehicle accident simulation and space materials testing at the North Pole. We are thoroughly versed in the collaborative dynamics of entertainment, sports, corporate, and government teams at all levels and highly adaptable to evolving project demands.


We have developed (and tested) highly sophisticated structural and windload computer models – providing truly exceptional design input and validation while advancing operational safety. We also concentrate intensely on “product experience,” with an obsessive focus on ease-of-use, reliability, durability, and simplified logistics.
