Is a That’s My Ball™ Golf Ball Stamp easy to use?
Your beautiful That’s My Ball Golf Ball ID stamp couldn’t be simpler to use. It produces a crisp, clear image of the design on your ball when the correct technique stamping is used.
Our tip is to read the instructions enclosed with your stamp carefully and have a practice on a couple of used golf balls. We have also put together a 60 second ‘How to Use’ video here. Follow this, practice on some old balls and you’ll be on your way to becoming an expert in no time!
How durable is the That’s My Ball Golf Stamp Ink?
The ink we use for the manufacturing of the That’s My Ball Golf Ball stamp is extremely durable. First of all it’s waterproof. Secondly it has superior durability to that of most permanent marker pens.
Of course different playing conditions will affect the stamp differently so a reasonable expectation of general wear and tear should be expected but with correct application, you should still be able to clearly identify your golf ball at the end of an 18 hole round. The good news is, even when the stamp does fade, you can reapply it within seconds.
** Special Note – our green and charcoal grey inks are not as deep in colour as our blue or red inks. Whilst we use the same ink for all colours, the green and charcoal grey may appear to wear more quickly but that’s simply because they are not as deep in colour as the blue or red inks.
How long should my ink pad last?
This can be a tough question to answer as there are many factors to take into consideration eg how many times you stamp an identifying mark on your golf ball; how often you change golf balls; not to mention how often you play!
Technically, with correct use and storage, the ink pad supplied with your golf ball stamp should be good for about 1,000 continuous impressions.
After extended use you will need to press down more firmly and a few extra times to achieve enough ink to stamp your ball. As an example, after nearly 2 years of use from an ink pad, in order to stamp my golf ball effectively I needed to press down up to 8 times quite firmly on the pad to achieve a good transfer of ink to the ball. I still then had another 3 months’ use out of the pad before it expired.
If your golf ball stamp has not been used for an extended period of time, it may appear to have dried out but this may not be the case. This will depend on how old the ink pad is and how long it has not been in use for.
To regenerate the pad, simply press down firmly 6 or 7 times onto the pad to try to draw the ink back up through the fabric pad. Do not add water or any other liquids to the ink pad. If you are unable to regenerate the pad by drawing the ink back up through the fabric then it would seem that your ink pad has expired.
