Have a Nice Day
Harvey Ball first devised the inane smiling face in 1963 for an insurance company in Worcester, Massachusetts. He never tried to trademark it, and never made a dime more than his initial $45 fee for designing it. An advertiser named David Stern says that he really invented it in 1967, but he didn't trademark it, either. It would be fitting if both of the people behind the popular symbol of happiness had died penniless and embittered, but we're just making that part up.
The symbol became popular in the early 1970s when a pair of brothers married it to the profound slogan, "Have a happy day." Believe it or not, the smiley face became associated with the UK's drug culture in the late 1980s. Then Wal-Mart got into the act until a legal conflict inspired their "no smiling" campaign in 2006.
If all of that isn't bizarre enough for you, we could go into the whole "emoticon" thing. But let's stick with golf. Bright optic colors make these balls one of our more practical novelty golf ball choices.
The designs are printed on high quality, two-piece construction golf balls developed for consistent control, distance, and durability. These balls are meant to be used. The high-gloss inks won't chip or fade. They come in clear gift packaging with the design facing forward.
