One of the most important considerations when opening a business is figuring out how you are going to let the village, town, city, country or world know that you are open for business. For the typical small business, the grand opening is something that is necessary to let the local residents that will frequent the store know that it is indeed open. There are many ways that a local merchant can announce their grand opening, one of which can be Sky Lanterns. Compared to more traditional grand opening announcements, Sky Lanterns offer many benefits.

Night Sky Lanterns Compared to Traditional Advertising

Compared to traditional advertising for a store launch, night sky lanterns offer a number of benefits. Of these, one of the most dramatic is simply cost. Compared to even the most basic vinyl sign, a large number of sky lanterns can be purchased. The typical large vinyl sign is difficult to hang and is temporary; once the store has been opened for a month the “now open” or “grand opening” sign is no longer needed and leaving it up any longer than a month or so is really considered classless. Many landlords or even townships will have provisions for such temporary signs and may even not allow them at all.

Instead, make a bold statement that your business is launched with a massive launching of night sky lanterns. On a clear night, they are visible for miles and as each lantern is lit and set afloat, they draw a line straight to your business. The large pack of eco lanterns, available here: are an excellent choice. The large pack, at 137.50 pounds, is about the same price as a large grand opening sign and has 50 lanterns. Enough for a couple nights of lantern launches to get attention for your business.

The Alternate Advertising Method

Another common promotion for businesses, especially those that are night-oriented businesses is to announce the business being open with large spot torches pointed to the sky. These carbon-filament lights are very bright and the light can be seen for miles. However, the cost to keep one of these lights on for a couple hours can break the bank as they take quite a bit of mains power to keep them going. has many different flying lanterns available. While not as bright, they float away leaving a trail of lanterns for someone to follow to a newly opened business. Encouraging patrons to set a lantern afloat on their way into the business for the first time is a traditional use of Chinese lanterns. Our white traditional lanterns are very similar to those that the Chinese culture have used for many years for luck. They can be purchased here: They start in packs of 6 and can be purchased in large quantities, up to packs of 200 and more with advanced purchase.

For any type of business launch, night sky lanterns can be a part of the launch. Whether the center piece of the business’ grand opening or a thoughtful addition intended to create a buzz, the products on are an excellent choice.
