Ball-Gram Greeting – Send a Ball in the mail
A long time ago I had seen these Bouncy Ball Greetings you send in the mail featured on one of the morning shows on TV and thought they were such a unique way to say “Happy Birthday” instead of your normal everyday card. One of the companies out there that sells these mailable greetings is Ball-Gram Greetings. The story behind Ball-Gram is about this guy who was a professional clown and he liked to send a gift to the birthday child before he performed. That is what he did. He would take a permanent marker and write special messages to the child. He started by mailing the balls in a box until he found out they could be sent through the mail as just the ball. He later developed a way to send the ball without writing the name and address right on the ball (safety reasons) by using a clear mesh net and adding a matching postcard to hold the info. This is how they are mailed today.
Can you imagine the face on a child or adult who receives a Ball in the mail. I know I would love it and it would no doubt make me smile getting that from my mailman. Hint Hint – lol.
The Ball-Gram Greetings are actual 9″ balls that have special messages on them for any occasion like – Happy Birthday, Congratulations, Thank You, Get Well, New Baby, Just Because, Love etc..
Then of course you choose some fun sentiments when ordering for the ball like: Have a BALL on your Birthday, I hope your Birthday is Unbelieva-Ball, I hope you BOUNCE BACK real soon, I have a BALL when I’m with you, You are so Hug-a-Ball, Have a BALL with your New Baby and many more, you get the point.
This is a fun unique gift idea any would love to receive – they are affordable and shipping is FREE. So if you are looking for a fun unique way to send some fun – this is it!!!
Update: It was brought to my attention that the company I saw on the TV show happened to be on the Today Show and also on CNBCs The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. The actual company that was featured and talked about is SendaBall. Ball-Gram started up after this company. Both have great products with the end result being the same – making someone smile.
