How to Create a Custom Event Ticket!
One of the more frequent questions we get from our customers is, “What should I put on my event ticket?”
While our ticket templates can be customized for a variety of uses, there are a a few essential things that should go on a ticket for a specific event.
**The Body of the Ticket**:
1. If you are an event promoter or an organization, it’s best to start with the name of your company followed by “Presents.” This way those attending will know who put the event together.
2. The name of the Headliner or main performer should go next, and it is better to use a larger size font if possible, since that is what people are mainly going to see.
3. Follow the headliner with any supporting acts, possibly in a smaller font size.
4. Next, put the name of the Venue or where the event will be taking place. Include the venue’s address on the next line so that attendants will know exactly where to go.
5. Another very important piece of information to put on the tickets is the Date and Time of the event.
6. Specify on the ticket whether it is General Admission, VIP or a Comp ticket!
7. Last, be sure to place any stipulations that may go with your event, such as “No Refunds/Exchanges” or “18 and up only.”
Since people may or may not decide to tear off the stub, it is up to you how you would like to utilize the stub portion of the ticket. Most people will just repeat some of the information from the body of the ticket. Sometimes people will use the stub for a raffle portion of the event.
It is important to remember a few things:
1. The stub is much smaller than the body of the ticket, and therefore will not be able to fit the same amount of information as the body.
2. It is not necessary to put the ticket number on the stub. Our system does that automatically for you. If you place a number on the stub, that same number will print on **all** of the tickets since whatever you type on the template gets printed.
3. For added security, you have the option to add a barcode to the stub. This will of course make the space to put information on there a bit smaller, so be sure to keep that in mind when creating your ticket.
Most importantly, our templates are meant to be used however you want to use them, so be creative! These are just simple guidelines to creating a basic event ticket.
