Printing 108 Custom Golf Balls in Under 4 Minutes
The Compress iUV600s is not JUST a custom golf ball printer, of course. But this is a great example of a real, profitable application for putting logos on golf balls that will serve a wide variety of uses as well.
On the other hand, if you’re in the golf ball manufacturing business, this could boost your production levels and provide a great quality end product.
To be clear, this is an example of print time, speed and financial opportunity to add a logo to golf balls using our Compress UV Printer. We’re starting with already manufactured golf balls and just adding some money-making personalization.
The video demonstration of the equipment and software is below, but here’s a quick look at the numbers to motivate you to watch the entire thing.
Printing Money with a Custom Golf Ball Printer | Compress iUV600s
Here are the numbers:
We printed 108 Wilson Ultra 500 Golf Balls. Their retail pricing is $9.99 for a box of 15, which is just under $.67 per ball.
Retail pricing for 108 printed products from our custom golf ball printer
Cost of materials for this job
That’s the gross profit for a single tray of 108 custom printed golf balls in a retail/online environment
Quick note: During filming the video we looked up the price of the custom golf balls but neglected to get a cost for FULL color. All the pricing in the video was based on a 1 color design – and it was STILL amazing.
Here’s a Surprise about using Compress as a Personalized Golf Ball Printer
Here’s a surprise if you haven’t watched the video yet:
Realistically, and conservatively, you could do 10 of those trays full of golf balls every hour.
Is that up to $1,241.60 per hour in gross profit? Yes. It is.
Unless you are a golf ball manufacturer or are focused on printing custom golf balls as your ONLY and very successful business, you’re probably not going to print golf balls 8 hours a day.
If you ARE, then you could pay a lease payment on a Compress iUV600s in about 30-45minutes a day.
But the same good math applies if you’re a sign shop that wants to add a UV Printer like the Compress to your shop. 80% of the time is creating acrylic or wooden signs, 20% golf balls.
And the same math applies to a Trophy and Awards business that mainly want to make full-color prints on metal, back print on acrylic, etc.
And also to a promotional product business that wants to customize USBs, pens, luggage tags, custom tiles and Yeti-style tumblers.
