When will I receive my printed cricket balls?
This depends on which printing lead times and delivery option you choose e.g.
Standard lead times (5-7 days) + Standard 2-3 Day delivery = 7-10 working days from placing your order. Express lead times (2-3 days) + Next Day delivery = 3-4 working days from placing your order.
LEAD TIMES are how many days it takes us to PRINT your order.
DELIVERY is the shipping method you choose at checkout.
Unlike other suppliers we print all our sports balls in-house.
This means we can offer you fantastic turn-around times and quality of print which cannot be beaten.
When you place an order for printed balls with the standard lead times, your balls are printed within 5-7 working days. You also have the option to upgrade to an Express 2-3 working day service for an additional £10.
We can be that fast simply because we print your order in house. There is no middle-man! Combine with Next Day Delivery, you could get printed balls in just 3 working days!

How to add your logo or text to your printed cricket balls: Click the Red 'Personalise' button above and select 'Photo/Logo' or 'Text' option. A visual proof will appear on the screen before you "Add to cart", A visual proof will also be sent by email before printing for orders of 12 or more packs. Lead Times: Standard lead times are 5-7 days but we do offer an express 2-3 day service for urgent orders. Choose from the 'Select Printing Lead Times' on the customiser when you have uploaded your image or text. Artwork Required: For logos and orders of 12 or more balls please upload your artwork as vector artwork, which is usually an Ai or EPS file. You will receive a visual proof by email, usually within a few hours, detailing the print area and pantone colours. If you do not have the correct format of file we can redraw the logo for you (fee may apply). A jpeg file is suitable for printing less than 12 packs of balls. If you have problems uploading your artwork please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your order number so we can help.
Print size for printed cricket balls: The print area is approximately 25-35mm, depending on the print process and the layout of your design. Rectangular logos and text can be printed to a maximum of 35mm for circular or square logos including photographs the maximum print size is 20-25mm. Due to a large amount of manufacturer print existing on the ball some will not be suitable for logo printing, this information will be on each specific product. Red cricket balls will be printed with white text which will stand out more than any other colour. For our pink or orange balls black text will be used. We can print colour onto any balls which are white or have a white side. Our logo service offers the most durable printing which will not wear off during play. For orders of less than 12 packs of balls or for printing photographs we will print using our inkjet printers and will not send you a visual proof before printing, although you will still see your visual proof on-screen. Urgent Orders: If you have a very urgent order please email us your requirements to email@example.com or call 01491 680833 to discuss.
