Golf Ball Stamp
Grade: A
Teacher’s Comments: A seemingly durable stamp, available in a variety of preset or custom designs. It takes some practice to get good impressions on a ball, though.

For custom golf ball prints, I know of three basic options: have the balls printed at the factory, have a custom Tin Cup made, or get a custom stamp. Of the three, the stamp is probably the most economical.

GolfBallStamp.Net provides the third option at a good price: $23.95 for a stamp sized up to 3/8” x 3/4. The website is very easy to use, and allows you to choose straight line text, initials or a monogram. Specific logo images can be uploaded. It’s important to size it correctly, though. I also suggest that you think seriously about how it might look when printed. Given the limits of rubber stamps on a round surface, lots of thin lines aren’t going to print very well.

My first thought was to upload a black-and-white version of the GolfBlogger logo, but I ultimately decided that given its dimensions and the interior detail, it wouldn’t print particularly well. So I instead decided to upload a small icon of my favorite critter, the Raven. It’s a good totem for a golfer. I took a photo that I had, and photoshopped it so to a solid black image on a white background. Then, I resized it to the proper dimensions. It uploaded in seconds. I received the stamp about a week later.

The stamp works fairly well, but I found there is a learning curve to making a good imprint. For me, the secret is crisply and with pressure rolling the ball across the stamp. Even with practice, though, it doesn’t always come out perfect. I suspect that a less complicated design, such as lettering, would do much better.

With the bad weather here in Michigan, I haven’t yet tested these stamps in action, but I can report that it takes some very vigorous rubbing to wipe out the imprint. I should think that it would survive a round very much intact.

The stamp is said to stamp many thousands of balls with the re-inking bottle sent with each stamp.

Recommended, especially if you just want initials.
