Pop Up Ball Calendar

Our Pop Up Ball or "Sixball' promotional item is so-called because it has 6 sides when flat and it's as close to a ball as we get! This pop up shape has been around for some time and is always described one way or another as a Pop Up Ball. It is a promotional idea that is made up of 14 faces in all, the 12 side panels are trapezium shaped whilst the top and base are hexagonal and it flattens to a 6-sided shape. This shape is therefore ideal for printing a twelve month calendar on which transforms your pop up mailer promotional idea into a pop up desk calendar novelty.

Pop Up Mailer Idea - Pop-up Ball

The 'sixball' pop-up mailer is as close as we get to a spherical pop up ball! In all the paper engineering books and cardboard engineering manuals that we have ever read we have never come across a perfect pop-up sphere. The Pop Up Ball shape is popular in its own right, however by adding pen holes to the hexagon at the top it doubles as a promotional desktop pen holder. Create a talking point by adding a touch of humour to your pop up ball by adding things like cut-out feet and jiggle eyes. This way you can create a name for your promotional idea and encourage brand loyalty. Another idea is to add two eyelets and a handle to the top surface and this transforms the pop-up ball into a promotional Pop-up Lantern!

Here are a few more promotional ideas for a pop up ball: globe; world; balloon; ball; crystal ball; bubble; planet; cup cake; fruit; vegetable.

Pop-up Lantern - Chinese, Halloween or Christmas Lantern - It's Up To You

Originally known as a "kallapsiball" the Pop-up Ball is easily transformed into a Pop-up Lantern by adding a decorative handle. Your design can transform the nature of the product to suit your promotion. Obvious suggestions include a Chinese Pop Up Lantern, a Halloween or Christmas Lantern, however with a little imagination you can create a bespoke promotional idea to go with any theme you choose. Outdoor events and garden party themes for example would benefit from a Pop Up Lantern invitation or these fun pop up mailers could even be used as a promotional idea give-away.
