FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Makeaball.com is a website where any user can log on and create their own personalized sports balls using a library of fonts and backgrounds, by uploading their own images and by adding their own text. Users can create a variety of sports balls including baseballs, softballs, hockey pucks, volleyballs, soccer balls, basketballs and footballs. Using a unique printing process, all balls are “full coverage” meaning that the artwork is printed on the entire surface of the ball from edge to edge, rather than in just a central location. This allows for bright, colorful backgrounds and larger photo areas.
PTC International Inc., the parent company, has produced hundreds of thousands of sports balls for over ten years for professional and collegiate teams in the NFL, NBA, NHL, and NCAA to name a few. With the creation of their website, large bulk orders that are used for things like game-day giveaways are no longer a requirement. Instead each unique user can create his own, one at a time, and still benefit from the picture-perfect printing process.
There are huge benefits to creating one at a time. Since each ball can be completely personalized and customized, users can make awesome gifts for coaches, seniors, award nights, all-stars, championships and many more special events. These are a great way to commemorate a season, event or special player since each ball can contain an unlimited number of photos and various lines of text like names, jersey numbers and players’ positions. Make-A-Balls are also a great way to raise money for your school or team through fundraisers and booster clubs.
Even photographers and other companies benefit from the unique printing technology:
“We started using CIT Imaging of PTC to offer Photo Baseballs to the athletes we photograph. We have been overwhelmed by the response. These are the new hot item. Every player wants one. The ability to customize each ball to each individual athlete has given us the opportunity to build our average sale and offer something really special to our athletes. We look forward to offering the Football this fall.” – J. Brown, Brown & Co. Sports Portraits
