Now, that's quick to happen. If you want to "repair" it, better scratch off the paint residue witha steel needle - a loose basis won't hold paint well. Then try some glossy acryllic, water-based paint.
Apply it with a soft spatulum (not a brush, messy thing and you do not get enough paint into the engravings), let dry, repeat if necessary and rubb off the surface with a cotton cloth, or refresh the surface on a spinner.

This happened on my Rapid Fire Solid as well.  Not a big deal, I think the cleaning of the ball helped to slowly take it off.

You could just purchase a yellow oil pastel and color the logo back in. After doing that, simply apply a thin layer of nail polish to the logo. This will lock the pastel in place and it will never be able to pop out. This is what I do in the pro shop when a customer complains that the letters of their engraving keep coming out. I've never had an instance where this method didn't work.

     take your ball back to the pro shop after you have cleaned the rest of the paint out... ask your pro shop owner if you can use his wax pencil he colors the names in for the people who get their names on their balls.. the yellow or white wax pencil will work great thats what they use it for, filling in machine traced names.. hope this helps..
