Q:

How much is shipping?

Scott  asked on  Feb 21, 2013

A:

Shipping is billed Weight / Zone. So it really depends on what you are ordering (weight) and where you are having it shipped too. There are 4-6 different shipping options on checkout so if you need it faster than stander USPS or UPS service you can opt for a faster deliver. The Supplier is located in Saint Louis, MO and ships same day. You will also receive a email after it ships with a tracking # for your order!

David D.  from  Merchant  replied on  Feb 21, 2013

A:

Buyer pays exact shipping and you have a number of options to choose from when checking out. Typically, the cost of shipping is between $10 and $15 but it depends on the QTY ordered as well as where they are being shipped to. All products are centrally shipped from St. Louis Missouri and you pay the actual shipping cost. If you go to ChineseSkyLanterns.com and proceed to checkout, you'll be able to calculate the shipping cost. - Chinese Sky Lanterns Staff

Q:

How do these float ? I like the idea !

Susan S.  asked on  Feb 21, 2013

A:

Well that depends if you are referring to the SKY LANTERNS or the WATER LANTERNS. The sky lanterns float into the sky like a mini hot air balloon due to a fuel cell heating the lantern and creating a positive buoyancy. The water Lanterns float by having a floating material that floats on water!

David D.  from  Merchant  replied on  Feb 21, 2013

A:

Similar to a hot air balloon. they are a lot of fun! - Chinese Sky Lanterns Staff

Q:

If these were lit and floated above the ocean off of a pier, will it leave debris in the ocean?

Marie  asked on  Feb 27, 2013

A:

No, they are 100% biodegradable and are made from rice and wood. Since, they are 100% biodegradable, they will not leave debris since the products that the lanterns are made from are 100% natural.

Q:

Why are the prices cheaper on your other website? http://www.eventlanterns.com/products/variety-sky-lanterns the prices should remain consistent regardless of whether a groupon is being used. I dont think its fair to mark up your prices if a groupon is being used. It ends up being cheaper without a groupon

sana T.  asked on  Feb 25, 2013

A:

The reason is because Chinese Sky Lanterns has other owners involved then with Event Lanterns. Event Lanterns is the supplier for Chinese Sky Lanterns. And Event Lanterns is actually really only cheaper if you buy more then 50 lanterns as that company is designed for wholesale sales in larger volumes. It's cheaper on Chinese Sky Lanterns when you order 10, 20 and 30 packs with the groupon. Also, the price will not be lowered on Chinese Sky Lanterns after this Groupon. The price will always be the same as it is right now on Chinese Sky Lanterns.

Q:

Are there any 14" white hanging lanterns? I didn't see any listed.

Jackie N.  asked on  Feb 25, 2013

A:

At this time, we do not have any 14 inch, white, hanging lanterns in stock. We do have all of the other 14 inch colors in stock and we have other sizes in white available that are very close to 14 inches in diameter.

Q:

can these be used indoors, like in an arena?

kevin p.  asked on  Feb 24, 2013

A:

The Sky Lanterns can NOT be used in doors. The hanging lanterns can, but please make sure NOT to use a sky lantern indoors. That would cause a serious fire risk.

Q:

My daughter is getting married in July of 2014. If I order Sky Lanterns now, will they still be good for the wedding?

Mary G.  asked on  Feb 24, 2013

A:

Yes, they will still be good for the wedding. The only thing you don't want to do, is keep them in your garage for an extended period of time. The only thing that can hurt them is high heat for extended periods of time. If you keep them inside, or a a temperature controlled environment, they'll be 100% fine!

Blake S.  from  Self  replied on  Feb 25, 2013

Q:

I'm interested in the hanging lantern, you state that you can use fish wire, I need it for my daughters baby shower. My question, is there something inside that will keep a battery operated candle in? What size would I order if I wanted to hand on trees or place as a table setting?

JANET D.  asked on  Feb 24, 2013

A:

There isn't a platform for a light bulb, but you can hang one from the mount on the top of the lantern. As for the size, it really depends. The sizes on our site are based on the diameter so I would choose whatever size you think is best, depending on the event and how much space you have. You could even order different sizes.

Q:

Must it be windy for the sky lanterns to fly. my party's in july and it won't be very windy.

Saundra R.  asked on  Feb 23, 2013

A:

No actually it should be little to no wind. Here are some guidelines for launching the sky lanterns: Only launch in dry, calm, windless conditions. -- Only launch in open spaces, far away from airports, buildings, and overhead objects. -- Launch away from dry crops, woodlands, and plants. -- Please do not use any damaged Lanterns. This includes lanterns with holes, tears, and or rips -- Thanks! Mike

Q:

Hi there, which sky lanterns are better for being able to view them longer - the white or colored - do the colors limit the viewing? thanks

carol s.  asked on  Feb 23, 2013

A:

Carol, Because of the fuel cell and light source that is created at night the color of lantern does not limit viewing at all. It is really just a personal preference. Thanks! Mike

Q:

Are we allow to use sky lanterns in Las Vegas in USA on July 4th from our backyard? If so how safe are they? I am afraid of causing fire to our neighbor houses. Akiko H, Las Vegas, NV, USA

Akiko H.  asked on  Feb 22, 2013

A:

Chinese Sky Lanterns Does not keep information on which cities and counties has passed laws or bans on Sky Lanterns. You will have to check with your local Fire Dept. prior to purchasing them. They are very safe as long as they are used in a safe manor. Fire can be a result of Sky Lanterns due to the fire in the fuel cell. Anything that has to do with fire can also start other fires. Please use with caution and under the proper parental guidance as well as follow directions exactly as instructed on the packaging. Thanks for your Interest! Thanks, Chinese Sky Lanterns Staff
