Have you been looking for the perfect way to commemorate that perfect season in your child’s sport, or a way to let them know how proud you are of their sports accomplishments? I found the perfect answer with customized sports balls (or pucks) from Make-A-Ball.
I had the opportunity to try making a customized baseball for review. While I would have preferred a soccer ball to show off Kurt or Danica’s past season, I decided I would go ahead and make a baseball for Kurtis to get him excited about his first upcoming tee-ball season.
Kurtis was very excited to see his new ball with his own name and picture on it. It was truly something special to let him know how proud we are of him.
The process of making the ball was very easy with a few simple steps:
Choose the type of ball (basketball, baseball, soccer ball, hockey puck , etc.)
- Then choose the layout
- Choose a background
- Finally, personalize your ball
For the baseball, the layouts offered a possibility for up to 4 text boxes or pictures. I chose 2 different backgrounds and added one picture of Kurtis and one text box where I simply put his first name. If you wanted to commemorate a season or honor a coach you could definitely add more text to say more, add the year etc. The website was very easy to follow and use, I did find some of the backgrounds to be a little busy, but there were plenty of simpler ones to choose from.
This would be a very fun project to do with your child and let them make a ball for their favorite coach. I will say that you need to order ahead as it took about 4 weeks for my order to arrive.
The customized baseballs are real baseballs and are regulation size and shape with red stitching. They are 2.687″ in diameter. Although our customized baseballs are real, they are not approved for game play.
