Can You Etch It – Baseball

Welcome to Can You Etch It, the web’s first laser engraving series that specializes in laser engraving strange, unique, and even common items. Today I wanted to continue the theme from a previous episode so I decided to laser engrave a baseball.

A laser engraved baseball has many possible uses.  It could be to keep track of a team’s practice balls.  Another use would be as unique end of season trophies, providing the player a trophy they can actually use.  A baseball could be laser engraved with a date and team score creating a one-of-a-kind keepsake for the fan who caught that foul ball.

Laser engraved baseballs could also be used as creative business cards for the sport’s agent, as a give-away by an sporting goods manufacturer or retailer, or souvenirs by local teams.  Whatever the use, the result is a customized, usable item that will be enjoyed by all who receive it.

Why a Baseball?

Baseball is a very popular sport.  I have been thinking of customizing a baseball with the date, the teams, and scores of a game when a fan caught the foul ball.  In addition to that, I thought a baseball would make a better trophy than the standard inexpensive common trophies that all players get.  After a few years, many of those trophies are forgotten and either thrown away or given away.  With a customized baseball, at least the player will have something to use in the future, even after the trophy sentiment is gone.

Here is a video of the baseball being engraved by the laser (lasts about a minute and a half).
