If you need to host an entire event by yourself, look no further for your printing needs. We print custom event tickets. All you need to do is supply your print-ready artwork. Choose the paper of your preference. We recommend thicker paper for event tickets, but with the additional option of laminating your tickets, they will be protected and sturdy no matter what. Our ticket printing also gives you the option of perforation, so that one side of the ticket can be pulled off and kept by your clients.
Our event tickets come with the added option of using variable data printing. This means your event tickets can change elements such as text, images or graphics from one ticket to the next. This is possible without slowing down the printing process.

We offer a variety of paper grammages for your event tickets. The thicker the paper grammage, the higher the likelihood that they will be sturdy and durable.
Lamination covers your event or concert tickets with a thin plastic film. This is to protect them against water damage, scuffs, and worn edges. This is especially handy for event tickets that will be traveling a lot with your clients. Choosing lamination adds elegance and quality to your event tickets while enhancing the brilliance of the colours.
Do you offer perforation?
Absolutely! When placing your order online, check the section called “finishing”. Select the perforation option and you’re all set for the perfect perforated event tickets.
How do I design for variable data?
Specify the space you want the variable data to be printed on. We simply need you to label the area. Should the data be simple numbering, for example 0001-1000, the artwork can just have the very first number on it (0001 in this case). If the variable data is more complicated, kindly supply a spreadsheet that includes all of the data.
What is “bleed”?
Bleed is the area around your artwork that is trimmed off. This allows your design to look as if it was printed to the edge, even when the cutting alignment was slightly off. Your bleed should always extend to at least 3mm.
The first tickets were handwritten notes, which by the 1960s had become a booklet with each leg of a trip ticketed by a flimsy coupon.
In the late 1970s use of computers led to the dot matrix printing of tickets and in the 1990s airlines started using a cardboard ticket with a magnetic strip which contains relevant passenger information. (Source)
Event tickets have become increasingly more digitalised, however many people still prefer a printed ticket to a digital version. This is because having the physical copy of the event tickets tends to provide a feeling of comfort and security to the ticket holder. (Source)
