Give Your Party a Sporting Shot!

Keep Your AFL Grand Final Event Organised

The 2012 Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final is coming up pronto. Traditionally held on the last Saturday in September on the Melbourne Cricket Ground, this annual event has a tendency to draw a huge crowd at home, in addition to its being broadcast worldwide.

The AFL Grand Final Day is more than just your ordinary Australian rules football game or tourney. This shindig boasts an entire WEEK of events, set to start off Sunday before the event with the VFL Grand Final at Etihad Stadium, and on into Friday with the “Footy on Parade” in Melbourne.

Footy Fever

Millions of people are counting down the days until they get to watch the AFL Grand Final. If you can’t make it to the Ground in Melbourne for the seat at the real event, which many people won’t, chances are there’s a Grand Final party nearby you can attend that will work just fine.

And if you’re one of those fine people who’s having a party for the big Day, you’ll want to get ready for the crazed footy fans in advance.

Whether you’re inviting hundreds of people to the local pub, or just having a bunch of mates over for a BBQ, thinking ahead and staying organised can be difficult. With all the “footy fever” going on (and it’s only going to get wackier from here) you may need a bit of help keeping it all together.

Feed the Masses

Let’s face it: asking people to pitch in at a party isn’t something new. Especially for popular AFL Grand Final parties, where people tend to eat and drink a good bit, asking for some kind of donation for the food and drinks is far from uncalled for.

Instead of going around to your guests and asking them one by one for donations, consider securing the donations in advance. This will help you in 3 ways:

  1. Sell Event Tickets. Explain to your guests that when they purchase a ticket, they are paying for the food and drinks that they will consume in advance.
  2. Keep a Head Count. You’ll know how many people are coming from the number of tickets that were purchased, and you can leverage this information to purchase the right amount of food and drinks.
  3. Match it Up. It’s incredibly easy to print Event Tickets, and it’s easy to find matching media for your event. If you don’t like the pre-designed templates, enjoy the freedom to Design Your Own.

Be a team player! Keep your event organised so that everyone can have a “Grand” time at your Final party.

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.

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!
