Q: How do I submit my customer’s logo and what are the preferred logo formats? A: We need to receive the logo by e-mail and the artwork needs to be a vector file. The format can be : eps, ai, corel draw, vector saved as pdf, we accept most formats so long as is a vector file.
Q: What is the Maximum Print Area on a golf ball? A: The maximum print area is 24mm diameter.
Q: Why is the maximum print area on a golf ball only 24mm diameter? A: Basically because a golf ball is round and the print method is pad print. When the silicon pad contacts the golf ball the rounded end of the pad compresses over the part of the golf ball that is being printed. Because the golf ball is round and the pad is compressing over a round surface, distortion of the print would occur if the attempted print area was too large. For example if you tried to print a square that is larger than the maximum print area of 24mm diameter then the logo would “bow” i.e. the sides of the square would appear curved instead of straight.
Q: How are the logos positioned on the golf balls? A: This varies dependent upon the position of and the size of the existing manufacturer’s identification markings on the golf ball. The printer will position the logo at their digression. This is never a problem.
Q: Can I ask for the logo to be position exactly to the millimeter in line with the manufacturer’s marking on a golf ball? A: No not really. Whilst the print position of the logos is accurate enough to be commercially acceptable please do understand that the positioning of the golf ball in the jig or holder, in preparation of applying the print, is done by human hand and is reliant upon the operator’s accuracy of eye.
Q: What is the imprint quality? A: Pad printing on to golf balls achieve a great quality imprint.
Q: What is the maximum colour of print on to golf balls? A: Five Colours.
