Make-A-Ball Review

MakeABall We are a baseball loving family! My boys play every Spring/Summer. We love going to Twins games. Actually, my boys love all kinds of sports. Winter has them playing basketball. This year they’re considering football! My daughter also plays tennis in college!

So, what would be more appropriate for a memento or a gift than a personalized ball from Make-A-Ball? Specifically for my boys, a baseball?Since baseball just started I had to go back and find pictures from last year. I found one of Buddy playing baseball and one of Doodle at the Twins game with the Twin’s mascot, TC.

The process of creating a Make-A-Ball was relatively easy.

The first thing you need to do is pick a sport. I chose baseball since the weather was turning nice and I was excited for the boys’ seasons to start.

Make-A-BallLet me warn you, lol, this may be the hardest step. In the pre-design option, there are a ton of fantastic related backgrounds. You can pick these first and put a photo on top of them.

Make-A-Ball Make-A-Ball Make-A-BallAs you go along in the process, you can make some cool edits like rotating, changing dimensions and the transparency. The tools make creating your original ball(s) a piece of cake! In this same step you can add your text with a great selection of fonts!

Make-A-Ball Make-A-BallI was so thrilled to see our balls. The boys each have their own balls. I made it clear to the boys these are NOT to be taken outside and used. Thankfully they both liked different ones and they can have them on their shelves!

If you’re looking for a great, thoughtful gift Make-A-Ball is stellar for the sports enthusiast!
