Will Vinyl on Golf Ball Affect Performance?

In short, will added vinyl from a cricut machine affect performance (spin, ball speed, accuracy)?

Most people will write on their golf balls with marker for identification. However I am a graphics designer with a love of golf. I want to make my own small custom logos to overlay ontop of the golf ball. The vinyl should conform to the ball and still show the dimples just fine. I am not worried about damage to the vinyl that is irrelevant. Please let me know if there has been any testing done, I do not have a launch monitor to test with and without.

 

Thanks !

I would think it would. Testing was done years ago by a company which stated "refurbished golf ball when recoated (painted) affected the performance.

I know it would make it harder to line up the shot. 

Case in point. When I owned my business, I would treat our employees to a day of 18 hole minature golf, and a luncheon. We gave out putting trophies to the various winners. 

I would putt with a ball painted up to resemble the American flag. I sucked big time using that ball to putt with. I'd go again, using my regular ball, and putt like I really knew what I was doing. Had to figure the difference was the flag paint job.

While I'm not going to discount the possible effect the ball decal had on your putting, simply repeating a putt should yield better results than the first time around because you would have learned something about the putt and adjusted accordingly.
