I'm not sure how Aramith does it now because the decorations have pretty sharp corners.

The fact that the colors (black/white/other) are solid material means that they will remain about the same appearance even as the diameter of the ball wears down in play. I have seen some very worn red circle cue balls where the red circle was a thin, uneven pink circle. That's probably too much service.
interesting stuff..
thanks bob
and all for replies


A billiard table is that richest of metaphors,
by turns a theatre, an altar, touchstone, gauntlet,
ritual ground, a gunfighter's high noon, a refuge,
a verdant landscape for balls to scatter and rest in meaningful synchronicity,
a classroom, a karma dance, mirror of moods, a guide and trusted friend...
