All of our molded foam balls are printed using a proprietary process transfer/decal. We feel this process offers larger imprint areas and the best possible imprint quality for this type of product. Each decal is applied by hand and while we make every effort to place them consistently some variation will occur. Depending upon the ball color the clear base of the transfer/decal may or may not be apparent and some variations may be apparent from part to part.
