Fiance had an idea over the weekend and can’t get it out of his head. He’s been looking all over but can’t find anything, so maybe it just doesn’t exist. But if anyone else can find it, I know it’s the Hive! 🙂
Fiance wants to give his groomsman custom basketballs. What we really wants is to be able to custom design it in our wedding colors with alternating patterns of purple and blue.
I figured that would be hard to find, and asked him if he’d be ok with an all white ball that everyone could sign. He’s ok with that, but I can’t find one of those either. Just half white or one panel of white.
Have any of you heard of anything like this?
What about painting one? Do any crafty bees have tips on what sort of paint would hold up?

Does anyone know of anything on Etsy?

What about spraypainting a basketball white? I would assume a sharpie could write over it, but don’t quote me on that.. I would think spraypainting it would be the best and easiest way to get even coverage.
-edit- I also found this? http://www.amazon.com/Wilson-Official-Size-Autograph-Basketball/dp/B000FA7ZNU/ref=pd_sim_sg_1

What are your colors? I saw some online that were pink/white, blue/white, green/white, etc…
Edit…just saw you already said your colors…haha! I’m blind today!

I was able to find this company that sells purple/white and blue/white basketballs:
They also have solid purple and solid blue basketballs. No white though.

Just found a white basketball on Amazon. If you search for “autograph basketball” or “signature basketball” on other sites you might be able to find one cheaper: http://www.amazon.com/Synthetic-Leather-Autograph-Basketball-Rawlings/dp/B001IP4FRU

@Leprechaun: The product description on that one seems to say it’s only half white and half orange.
“Official menÕs size 7, 29.5″ circumference. Synthetic leather with 4 white panels for autographs. Free autograph pen with specially formulated ink permanently marks on sporting goods and is fade resistant. Free Sharpie pen!”
Isn’t that odd? I didn’t think a white basketball was such a strange thing to want.
Anyway – you are all coming up with great options, thanks so much!
Maybe we will have to pick one of the other colors like all blue or blue and white.
I knew weddingbee would be a good resource! 🙂
