No Stress! Plan That Big Event and Relaxe

by admin on December 25, 2013

Four Tips on How to Create Your Event with Ease

In general, planning an event is hard work. Planning a big event can be even harder. Feeling overwhelmed by all of the components a large event comes with is normal, but it doesn’t have to happen to you. If you are feeling a bit out of sorts about how to plan your huge event, here are some steps you can take to get your event off the ground and set up without a hitch.

Know your vision: When planning an event, great or small, you have to know the exact purpose of the event. When developing the vision for your event, establish your event’s purpose and the goals you want to achieve. According to eHow, keeping the event’s purpose and goals in mind will help you stay on track.

Develop a checklist: With so many moving parts that come with a large event, it’s  imperative to have some type of guide that shows what must be done at what time. Checklists will keep you on track as to what you need to accomplish for your event. Without a checklist, or some type of guide, you might get off track and begin to feel overwhelmed.

Allow enough time for setup: Let’s say that it’s 30 minutes until your big event gets started, but you’re far from prepared. It’s only a few minutes before the event is set to start, and the DJ hasn’t arrived yet, the catering is doing a completely different menu than the one agreed upon, and guest speakers are still preparing speeches. If you don’t want to run into this horrifying predicament, make sure to plan for ample time, just in case things don’t go according to plan. Eventplanning.about.com suggests having everything set up 15 minutes before your event is scheduled to begin. Schedule your time so that when problems come up—and they will—you’ll have enough time to solve any issues before the event is supposed to begin.

Have a backup plan: Are you having an outdoors event but don’t have a plan for inclement weather? Are you having a concert and haven’t thought about the off-chance that the venue’s equipment is faulty? For any event, it’s best to have a backup plan. For instance, if you are holding an outdoors event, it’s best to have an indoor venue picked just in case the weather turns for the worst. Without a backup plan, all of your hard work to be prepped and organized could go down the drain. Even when you’ve planned for the best, problems will still crop up.

Print Event Tickets for Your Own Australian Christmas Party

As Southern Australia cools down for the winter months, consider doing a bit of celebrating. Take a clue from the Blue Mountains and their traditional Yulefest if you’re not sure how to party. This winter festival is so popular that even parts of Sydney have begun to join in on the annual celebration.

If you can make it out to the Blue Mountains for Yulefest, you’ll enjoy a variety of different venues with packages for a “Christmas in July” party. But if you can’t quite get all the way out there, no worries! Consider the option of hosting a holiday party of your very own.

Have it Your Way

Back when we were rug-rats, we all wished Christmas could come twice a year. Well, our prayers have been answered! In the spirit of Yulefest, you can throw your own Christmas party anytime during the months of June, July, or August.

It doesn’t matter what kind of business you’re in, or whether you have anything to do with business. Anyone can throw a successful event that’s also a ripper of a time for everyone who attends.

All you have to do is put a little thought into the prep and gather the right materials. Ask your friends and other contacts to help you out by donating any materials you don’t have outright.

Chances are, if you mention it’s a “Christmas in July” party you’re planning, people will be more than happy to help you out.

Keep the Knockers Quiet

Impress your friends and potential guests, and leave the critics speechless when you print spiffy-looking event tickets for your Christmas in July party.

Choose from a variety of unique ticket templates in the online gallery that allow you to enter your information easily, so you can print fast and get the tickets shipped to you without delay.

Your piggybank will thank you, too. All event tickets are printed full colour and full bleed, with detachable stubs, secure numbering, and even an option for booklet stapling. You get all this for a truly reasonable price, which is more than worthwhile.

The spirit of Yulefest is to celebrate Christmas in July, but don’t make it too serious.

Keep it fun and relaxing by uploading unique images onto your event tickets, or Design Your Own creative event ticket that speaks perfectly to your off-season Christmas party.

Come, all ye faithful!

by admin on November 22, 2010

Are you planning any big events in December? If so, it’s time to start printing event Invitations: the Christmas season is almost upon us once again! Small family celebrations, large formal galas, and everything in between can benefit from a smart Invitation. Casual or sophisticated, a printed Invitation makes a greater impression than word of mouth or email.

When your guests receive their Invitations, they’ll have a concrete reminder of your event, and all the information at their fingertips: names, dates, times, locations.

Seasonal parties can truly start to add up. Don’t let your details become lost in a flood of festivities, forgotten as guests try to juggle numerous activities. Getting the information out early helps ensure that your celebration is marked on calendars and anticipated in advance! The physical aspect of the Invitation allows it to be hung up where recipients cannot help but notice it and continue to think about your event.

Once you know the details for your event, you can start printing event Invitations!

It’s in the Details

by admin on August 3, 2010

Have you checked out Ticket River recently? Normally, I don’t like to go on about one website, but this company, based on the experiences learned from well over a decade of online ticket printing and sales, gets quite a bit right. Event Ticket printing is a whole-package operation. Certainly, anyone can purchase a general role of “Admit One” tickets, or perhaps print their own tickets at home, but a high quality printer offers those special touches that make a difference to those who notice.

Of course, any printer should offer you some basic professional touches: high-resolution images, in full colour and full bleed, with ink that doesn’t run or fade. Card stock should be thick and durable, with a professional finish in glossy or matte. Turnaround ought to be quick, with multiple delivery options, so you get your ticket when you need them. All Event Tickets, Drink Tickets, VIP Passes, and Raffle Tickets need to be individually numbered for security and accounting purposes. This all goes without saying.

Consider those extra touches, things that can help your planning, promoting, and actual event go that much more smoothly:

  • Booklet stapling helps your sales team stay organized and track ticket sales.
  • Perforated stubs keep the event organized at the gate.
  • Free designs and ticket templates are always welcome and encouraging.
  • Image upload is a brilliant way to customise your event without paying for custom work.
  • Event Kits let you look sharp; all your promotional materials and event collateral can match.

These are just a few of the special offerings that are free for every customer, every time.

Don’t forget the one thing that is all too frequently missing from your interaction with web-based businesses: the personal touch. When a company offers friendly customer service, available by email or phone, you know that they are willing to fix your problems. If you have a question, comment, or concern, there is someone waiting to hear what you have to say and make it better! Ticket River offers 100% satisfaction; if it’s not right, they’ll make it right, or refund your money. What more could you ask for?

When the details are right, the big picture comes into sharp focus!

Your FIFA World Cup Party

by admin on June 16, 2010

There’s still time to organise your World Cup celebration. Sports-themed parties are a fine way to gather your friends together in a small space. Or, let out a larger venue and sell event tickets to armchair athletes who are willing to pay a little extra to watch the big game on a big television, perhaps within a few feet from a fully-stocked bar. Find your space and start printing those Event Tickets.

You need not do much decorating, but if you want to liven the room up, a simple assortment of flags of many nations or team photos will do the trick. Just be certain you have plenty of chairs, along with an out-of-doors space convenient for those who feel the need to step out for a cigarette, a breath of fresh air, or to punch a tree. If you’re charging for Event Tickets, make sure the drinks keep flowing, and consider a selection of easy-to-eat foods. Barbecue is always welcome, but finger foods will be appreciated.

Advertise with Posters, Flyers, and Invitations. Be sure to communicate where interested parties can purchase tickets to your event. You may sell ticket through a local business, a website, or by using your excellent sales pitch on potential customers you meet in pubs, clubs, or in your neighborhood.

World Cup Fever is a curious affliction, but one that is not wholly useless. Turn your club meeting, charity fundraiser, or weekly outing in a World Cup part and start raising money while entertaining those around you in a style fit for athletes.

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.

Life’s a Beach

by admin on April 7, 2010

Going coastal? Or just assuming the attitude. Either way, April is the perfect time for a last-chance beach party!

Organise the festivities with a beach-themed Event Kit. Sell Event Tickets if you are trying to earn money with your event, or simply to break even with the food. Choose matching Posters to advertise if you’re looking to gather a crowd, or choose customised Invitations to keep the guest list exclusive. Then your Invitations can double as Event Tickets, if your event is to be large enough that you might need help keeping track of who shows up.

Wax down your surfboards and head for the beach for that classic surfing event. Sell more Event Tickets when you choose the perfect inspirational image, in action-packed, high-resolution colour. Or simply sit by the shore and watch the pros cut through the waves as you enjoy the lingering days of autumn. Even inland, you can invoke the majestic beauty of the place where the ocean meets the shore with the right Event Ticket.

Dig your toes in the sand or get your feet wet. Just relax. All your ticket printing needs are covered in one place, so you can organise and advertise your event with minimum hassle and maximum beauty. Wouldn’t you rather be thinking about important things, like how many steaks you’ll need, or what brand of beer your guests would prefer? With hundreds of beautiful ticket template to choose from and an easy customisation and delivery process, you can get your Event Tickets printed and move on.

Keep all your events beautiful with the right ticket!
