Landmark creates custom inflatables for customers around the globe, but when we manufacture inflatable projects for companies in our hometown, it’s always exceptionally exciting. We’ve made many custom inflatables right here in Minnesota over the last 25 years, but here are four Minnesota inflatable projects that really stand out:
With four University of Minnesota alumni on staff, the “U” is dear to our hearts and it’s been a delight to make not one, but two, projects for them. A giant inflatable Goldy Gopher mascot was created as a photo-op for fans to interact with at pre-game activities. Because he’s so cute, he naturally boosted school spirit. Several years later, we created the U of MN inflatable football tunnel. It set the perfect scene for game-time when the Minnesota Gophers stormed the field through it to the tune of the Minnesota Rouser.
We’re gonna win Twins! Back in 2001, two of the Minnesota Twins’ most famous faces: Kirby Puckett and mascot TC Bear were transformed into giant inflatables using the Twins’ bobblehead designs. We loved working on this project to support our local baseball team and all of the Twins fans out there!
Schwan’s is a multi-billion dollar company that employs over 17,000 people in the US and we are proud to say they’re based just southwest of here in Marshall, Minnesota. They are best known for their home-delivery of frozen foods, but they also distribute under other in-store brand names. We’ve made multiple custom inflatables for Schwan’s and one of them was an impressive inflatable tent back in 2004 for their NASCAR racing team events.
Land O’ Lakes was founded 90 years ago and currently makes products spanning from butter to creamer to seasonings to cheese. To advertise milk at Twin’s baseball games, Land O’ Lakes created a giant inflatable product replica of their half gallon of milk which would flash when the Twins scored a home run. We were proud of our inflatable, but we also had fun supporting a local dairy co-op!
