Choosing Poms

How do I choose the length?

Baton handles are measured from the center out (6” length = 12” across). Top handles are measured from the handle to the end of strand (6” length = 6” down).

Length Options:

  • 4" - Small and sassy
  • 5" - Volleyball size
  • 6" - Standard size
  • 7" - Basketball size
  • 8" - Big and flowy
  • 10" to 15" - Limited styles for extra cost

How do I choose the width?

The width is measured across the strand itself.

Where should we store our team set?

The best storage is a cool, dry place in a mesh equipment bag (as opposed to an airtight plastic container). Airflow prevents them from having an odor. To prevent damage, avoid leaving them in hot places like a car or garage.

What are the benefits of American-made poms?

Our high quality poms are made in the USA and made to last. Because our materials are double-coated, they will not fade or chip. The durable solid plastic handles provide a secure hand grip plus ensure our poms will not shed. As an added bonus, our die lots are standardized so your existing poms will match your future orders. Poms come partially fluffed by hand. You can fan the strands out even more for maximum fullness. However, if you would like them unfluffed for some reason, you may special order unfluffed poms.

What if it rains on them?

The colors are water-proof meaning they won’t fade. But, it’s best to keep them dry. However, if your poms get wet from rain accidentally, completely shake out the excess water and then lay them on a towel when you get home. Use a fan to speed up the drying process. Periodically, shake the strands to keep them from sticking together. Repeat until completely dry.
