From the Ninja Jump website:
Ninja Jump, Inc., founded in 1993, started a tradition of quality and integrity that holds true today. In 1997 we gained professional status by being one of the first inflatable manufacturers to join IAAPA (International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions). This initial effort began to legitimize the inflatable industry, earning it the recognition that it deserves.
In 2000 we introduced and pioneered the use of high end digital imaging printers that separated us from others still using hand painting and air brushing techniques to this day. By demonstrating this technique we were able for the first time to bring the public high-end images and vibrant reproductions that make our inflatables stand heads above the crowd.
Our commitment to excellence also paid off in 2000 as we won the attention of the most recognized production studios in the world, such as Disney, Pixar, DIC Entertainment, Nickelodeon, and Warner Bros. By being the first and only to premier licensed characters we have been able to bring worldwide attention to the inflatable industry with the acceptance and partnership of these celebrated entertainment industry icons.
While Ninja Jump has been able to enjoy the accolades of our customers and ultimately the public, it is within the industry that we are esteemed award winners. In 2003 and 2004 Ninja Jump was voted #1 by IAAPA members, attendees, business owners, and entertainment industry buyers. This recognition was later published in several entertainment industry publications.
