How to Design Your Own Unique Event Tickets

We’ve all heard the saying, if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. Well, as it turns out, there’s more truth to this than we originally thought. While asking a friend for help certainly couldn’t hurt, when it comes to event planning and ticket printing, doing it yourself may be just what you need.

What exactly do we mean by this? We DON’T mean buying an expensive new printer and spending your time printing out your own tickets. We also DON’T mean painstakingly cutting them out by yourself in order to sell them individually.

What we DO recommend, is designing your own event tickets. That way, you get exactly what you want, in addition to what you need.

You CAN Always Get What You Want

If you’ve found yourself browsing countless online ticket templates without finding anything close to what you’ve visualised for your event, try the Design Your Own tool from Ticket River.

The Design Your Own tool gives you the freedom to create unique tickets by letting you choose your own personalised colours, pictures, logos, designs and text for your event ticket. This leaves you in complete control of your ticket design.

Imagine creating an event ticket that is attractive, yet expresses the nature of your event perfectly, right on the ticket. That would be smart AND savvy.

Don’t Settle for Anything Less

It’s simple to Design Your Own event tickets, and it’s a blast. With a user-friendly system and the ability to upload your own images, the task of creating event tickets becomes an adventure for advertising and interesting to anyone with a creative vision.

And if you’ve waited until the last moment to finalise details like tickets, worry not! Procrastinators are welcome at Ticket River. Once you’ve designed your own ticket, the turnaround time for printing is fast. Not only that, but your tickets will be printed in full digital colour for a totally professional look.

All event tickets come with detachable stubs, a convenient and handy item when trying to keep track of things in the throws of the actual event.

They’re also numbered to make the final count of attendees easier, and prevent ticket forgers from printing fakes – you’ll know a fake if you already seen the number on another ticket that day!

Before You Sell Event Tickets

by admin on March 20, 2012

Lately, we’ve been talking to musicians and performers around the world to learn more about what works for event ticket sales and we discovered a few things. No group is too small or too new to hold a successful event. All it takes is a a little determination, a little dedication, and a not-unreasonable amount of work.

Are you working for a popular cause?

Fundraisers seeking to raise awareness and money for legitimate causes can usually count on good event sales as long as they know how to stay in touch with their base and find a way to put a human face on the cause. For instance, if you’ve been inspired to raise money for literacy in honor of a deceased love one, you’ll want to publicize your event by personalizing it as a memorial. Let the story be known: how your loved one inspired you to this cause, how their life was dedicated to it. Name your charity after your loved one. Brand it with their picture. Your fans will be inspired to help while they see you keeping the memory alive.

If your event is in aid of a school or sport team, remind your supporters who they’re helping! Use images of kids in uniforms if at all possible: this combination seems to be a great draw for any kind of sales. If you haven’t got uniforms, matching T-shirts help provide a great look of cohesion. Take it to the next level: bring those kids in their matching outfits around with you while you sell event tickets or publicize your message.

When your organisation is well-known, you can depend on recognisable brands. But if you’re a new group, you’ll want to create that brand. If you can create a logo, that will help tag your message. Even if you haven’t got a logo, an interesting event name can help create word-of-mouth buzz. Keep using your event name and your group name in your messages. Make sure you’re searchable online. Let everyone know what you stand for, whether it’s fighting cancer, playing rock and roll, or offering kids a safe space to play video games.

Keep working to spread your message, and you’ll find it much easier to start selling your event tickets.

Your Event, Your Ticket

by admin on May 11, 2010

While Event Tickets are often seen as the domain of the large or formal event, they are so simple and inexpensive to print that you’ll find you can add an air of excitement to any gathering simply by printing out a stack of Event Tickets. All right, perhaps issuing Event Tickets to your family before they sit down to breakfast is a bit of overkill. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with Event Tickets for slightly less prosaic moments:

  • Birthday parties
  • Club meetings
  • School dances
  • Youth Sports

Wherever people gather, you can help them assemble with a proper Event Ticket.

With hundreds of ticket templates from which to choose, you’ll find an appropriate design for your event. There are designs as specific as “Spaghetti Dinner” and “Beach Party,” athletic style Event Tickets in every colour combination, and plain tickets to which you can upload your own photo, logo, or image.

Ticket templates are terribly simple to fill out. Each template field will be numbered, so you need only enter your information, perhaps comparing it to the suggested layout to ensure that you haven’t skipped any details or created confusion with unusual juxtapositions of data.

You’ll get to review your own proof instantly, online. Then pay over a secure connection, choose your preferred shipping method, and relax. Your Event Tickets will be delivered in just a few days.

Anzac Day

by admin on March 31, 2010

As we move into the month of April, we remember the valour and honour of those who have served, the sacrifices of soldiers who did not come home, and the eternal hope that the future holds the promise of peace so that our children will never again be asked to travel overseas to a theatre of war. In preparation for Anzac day, it is fitting to organize your parade, dawn service, and related events with the Anzac Day Event Kit.

This lovely Poster not only announces the details of your observance, but allows you to customise it with logos of sponsors, head shots of speakers, and other photographs or meaningful illustrations. The ticket template provides for nine small images, along with one big one.

The design, which matches the rest of the Anza Day Event Kit, features a field of red poppies along with the silhouette of a soldier with his head bowed over his weapon. Gorgeous, full-colour printing offers eye-catching imagery to stand out from the background, so that you can spread your message easily. Let the entire community view the details of your event. This Poster offer you fourteen lines of custom text, so you can fit an entire morning’s worth of activities.

The Anzac Event Kit is available with any or all of the following pieces:

  • General Admission Event Ticket
  • Raffle Ticket
  • Drink Ticket
  • VIP Pass
  • Poster
  • Flyer
  • Invitation

It’s not just for charity galas!

by admin on February 2, 2010

Printing your own Event Tickets. Some people look at the fancy designs and decide that online print products are out of their budget, but these high-quality Event Tickets, Poster, and Invitations are not just for swanky charity balls, and they often cost less than items such as generic Invitations bought at the stationary story, which you much fill out by hand.

Anyone can afford beautiful Event Tickets and Invitations. Even if you’re holding a small affair, you will pay only pennies for each individual piece, but you will receive the same exceptional quality and service as large organisations receive when they order products online.

Consider printing lovely, customised invitations for:

  • Birthday Parties
  • Anniversaries
  • Barbecues
  • School Events
  • Family Reunions

Any time you want to gather a crowd is a good time to print your own Invitations and Event Tickets. Some Event Tickets without stubs can even double as Invitations. It’s fun, easy, and adds a touch of class to any get-together.

Own it!

by admin on November 24, 2009

Customisation: it’s the way to put your own personal stamp on everything you do. And when you’re designing and printing your own Event Tickets, it’s the only way to let the world know what you have to offer!

Every Event Ticket comes complete with its own ticket template, an easy-to-follow guideline to help you lay out your Event Ticket text. Ticket templates ensure that you don’t forget any essential information, but they also let you have your say in print.

Of course, every Event Ticket needs:

  • The name of the event
  • The location
  • The time
  • The price of the ticket

But don’t stop there! Your Event Ticket can hold more details than that. How about:

  • The name of your organisation
  • The names of any sponsors
  • Custom images from your own computer

Whatever details you need to share, whatever message you want to get across, you’ll find a place to add it to your Event Ticket.
