What is a virtual sample?  We take the logo you send to us and create an artistic representation of what the basketball will look like after production. We also match the logo colors and panel colors to the Pantone (PMS) colors you specify.  Virtual  samples are helpful to provide an idea of what the customized basketball will look like.  You can see how the colors will look when combined.  You may revise the virtual sample until you are satisfied.

What are Pantone Colors?  It’s very much like using a paint color guide at a home improvement store. The “Pantone Matching System”, also called PMS, is a method of identifying colors with Pantone color numbers so we know exact which color to print.  If you do not have a Pantone Color Guide, we can provide a link to an online Color Guide.  Just send us an email and request the link to an “online Pantone Color Guide”.  You then match the colors of the your logo and basketball panels to the color number inside the Guide.  You provide the color numbers to us.

Send an email with the following:

  • Item number of the basketball.
  • Basketball color(s) and logo color(s). Please provide the Pantone color number for each color.
  • Vector artwork of the logo.
  • Any additional specifications. Maybe you want the logo printed onto opposite sides?  No extra charge for this.

The virtual sample will be sent to you the following day.

Custom basketballs are useful for basketballs team promotions and basketball camps. You can use the image of the virtual sample to get approval for the purchase. We can create more than one virtual sample if you have multiple color schemes in mind.

We can revise the virtual sample until you are satisfied. Many customers like to match the color of the basketball panels to the colors of their logo.
