Do you have a sports fan in your house? One that likes baseball, hockey or even volleyball? Make-A-Ball offers customized sports balls for all the sports, plus the balls can be personalized, so you can celebrate that big win or any event! Make-A-Ball even offers custom balls to use as party favors for weddings! You can send one out as the save the date, to celebrate an anniversary or even groomsmen gifts.

I came across Make-A-Ball and thought of my nine year old. He loves baseball and football, more than anyone I know. I thought this would be perfect for him, so he helped pick out and design his own baseball.

Make a Ball


Now, while we LOVE our hometown team, The Reds, he fixates on a team and immerses himself on it by learning all he can. Right now he likes the Boston Red Sox, so that is what he wanted. Creating the ball was easy to do, only 4 steps.

1 – Choose a ball

2 – Choose a panel to wrap the ball, either vertical or horizontal.

3- Choose a design or backdrop for the ball. Over 90+ preloaded images that you just drag and drop onto your design.

4 – Upload your own picture or clipart, which is preloaded onto the site. We gathered 2 images from the web, the picture of the socks and the logo “Boston Red Sox” and uploaded to Make-A-Ball. If your image is too small you will get a warning that you need to upload a larger file size. You can also add your own text to make your ball truly special.

When we received the ball, I was really impressed with the quality. The images we picked out looked awesome. The ball had a high gloss finish and the stitching was perfect. My son was so excited when he opened it, he now proudly displays this on his bookshelf in the holder. I have heard him tell his friends, “I made that ball…it’s one of a kind.” Make-A-Ball is such a neat idea for your sports fan, coaches gifts, MVP’s, team pictures, or graduation gifts.

    I understand why others would opt to put photos of loved ones on such a creative ball as a commemorative piece, but for me it would be a bit awkward if actually used.
    Thus, I think a soccer ball with images of people you dislike on it: politicians, ex-boyfriends, etc. would be good.
    It would be an effective motivator for kicking it hard and far.
