security tickets

Of course, we’re always striving to offer state-of-the-art features for our tickets, whether that be novel materials and printing processes, useful products that complement your admissions packages, or better ways to handle security. Today we’d like to introduce our newest offering: customizable UV/blacklight security features.

You can now add a UV/blacklight security feature to any of our DIY tickets (General Admission or Reserved Seating), giving you peace of mind and ease of ticket checking at the venue on the night of your big event. UV/blacklight security is perfect for nightclubs, theatres, or outdoor venues, especially for events taking place in the evening. Low lighting is no excuse for sloppy ticket handling, and a UV security feature streamlines the checking process and makes it extremely difficult for forgeries to slip past. Just take a look at the image above to see this great new feature in action on a real ticket!

The best part is that our UV/blacklight security feature is customizable, too! We can use your logo or watermark to customize the UV-reactive image, making it easy to check tickets and help your guests breeze through entry. Fewer lines and less of a pain for the door attendants! The UV/blacklight image is applied to the back of a ticket, leaving the front unobstructed to best display your custom ticket designs.

As always, our tickets can be personalized to your heart’s content, and ordered in a wide variety of colors, styles, themes, and layouts. Try filling in your event information on our existing customizable designs, or uploading your own artwork! The UV/blacklight security option is available in addition to these already beloved features of ordering with Worldwide Ticketcraft.

The artists and venues you work with will thank you for your attention to detail and focus on security.

Up Your Admissions Game with The Ticket Wallet

Pocket_Ticket_Folder_4 Pocket_Ticket_Folder_3

Today we’d like to share a secret from working in the events business for so long: the single best way to create a positive first impression for your event is to deliver admissions items like tickets in the perfect package. A ticket, pass, or badge is the very first way your guests engage with an event, so it should reflect the experience you want attendees to have. As an organizer, you need to be thinking about how to package your tickets to create that positive association with your event, and extend your branding to the materials guests see first. Our favorite solution at Worldwide Ticketcraft is the fully customizable Ticket Wallet.

When they are beautiful, functional, and packaged in a way that is organized and attractive, tickets become more than the simple pieces of cardstock or plastic they start out as. Admissions products act like ambassadors for your event, being the first tangible piece of an experience that you want them to remember. The best tickets can also become souvenirs, to be held onto as a link to the good memories guests will associate with your event. Using a product like the Ticket Wallet allows you to extend your event branding, provide information to guests, and get them excited for the occasion while also staying organized for it. We’ve listed some of the major benefits of ticket wallets below:

  • Storage and organization. Whether hanging onto multiple tickets for the entire family when attending a performance or sporting event, or trying to keep many tickets for a multi-day conference or convention together, the ticket wallet provides the perfect storage option. Easier to carry and locate than a stack of tickets, this deceptively simple product helps keep lost tickets to a minimum and keeps your event running smoothly.
  • Easier mailing. With customizable dimensions, a ticket wallet can be made to fit the size of envelope you send tickets in by mail. The durable cardstock helps prevent tickets being folded, crumpled, or otherwise damaged in the mail.
  • Consistent event branding. If admissions products are the first thing your guests see about your event, you want them to be wowed! An attractively designed ticket wallet with your logo, promotional photos, and color scheme gets people excited to attend.
  • Providing key information. Especially good for longer events or events with multiple components, a ticket wallet can be printed with key contact info, a basic schedule, a map, or any other vital pieces of information your attendees may need. Because they’ll likely have the wallet on hand throughout the event, it’s a perfect place for commonly referenced information to be printed.
  • Looking professional. You may have noticed that your tickets were enclosed in a similar wallet product for the last big stage production you saw, or the last conference you attended. All the major events companies are catching on to how useful and attractive a product like this is. With a minimal financial investment relative to other aspects of event organization, a ticket wallet adds a lot of perceived value to attendees, and makes any event look more professional.

Of course, being fully customizable, you design it yourself and can include anything your clever event planner’s mind can come up with! The Ticket Wallet is such a flexible and multipurpose admissions product that you can use it to fill whatever needs your next event has. Your attendees will be impressed, and your event will stand out as being better organized and more recognizably branded.

Stand Out From the Crowd with “The Cricket”: Meet Our New, Clear Ticket and Credential Product

Stand Out From the Crowd with The Cricket Meet Our New, Clear Ticket and Credential ProductIf you regularly organize events, you probably get bored with looking at the same kinds of tickets all the time. Even if you try to order custom tickets or use a new design, it doesn’t always make it into the kind of keepsake that gets guests thinking about their memories of your event and how much they enjoyed themselves. If you’re looking for a truly unique ticketing product that will take your event to the next level in professionalism and great design, Worldwide Ticketcraft has just the thing available! It’s called The Cricket, which is essentially an oversized ticket printed on a clear plastic. With a single glance, these new clear tickets grab attention like no other admissions product.

Most tickets are fairly impersonal, and produced at the lowest cost available, with simple text for the event details, and a plain background. Paper or cardstock tickets and credential badges are also not the most durable, often requiring laminating or plastic sleeves if they will be used over multiple days. The Cricket is different; these durable plastic creations have a multitude of features which make them stand apart from a traditional ticket, including:

  • Full color printing on clear plastic. These tickets are vibrant like no other admissions product, with high quality, colorful inks that really “pop”!
  • Personalized for each patron. Each ticket or credentials badge is individually printed, so the customization options are endless.
  • White ink for opacity and variable information. For contrast against the clear background, and effective visual communication, white ink can be used in addition to black and colors.  
  • 20 and 30 mil thickness options. Choose your durability depending on your needs.
  • Any shape or size. However you want to design your ticket or other admissions and events product, you have complete flexibility with The Cricket. Let your imagination run wild!
  • Slot punch for attaching lanyards. Make badges simple to design with this optional feature.

Worldwide Ticketcraft has developed and tested the clear ticket to meet the highest quality standards. Your guests will be impressed by these gorgeous tickets and events products—designed for multiple uses, The Cricket can meet the needs of any venue for admission, ID verification, or special access. Each printed item can be personalized for individual patrons to include a barcode, consecutive number, name, date, or whatever other information you require. Thanks to this unlimited customizability, The Cricket goes beyond just ticketing. Here are a few other options for this revolutionary admissions product:

  • Backstage Pass
  • Membership Pass
  • Commemorative Ticket
  • Sideline Pass
  • Suite Holder Badge
  • Parking Hang Tag
  • Opening Day or Night Admission
  • Oversize specialty ticket
  • Whatever else you can dream up!

Not only does this give you the freedom to design just about anything for your upcoming event, it also makes for a great souvenir for guests to hold onto. Unlike a paper ticket stub, your attendees will want to keep their beautiful clear ticket or badge. When they look at it, they’ll appreciate the effort put into designing a beautiful and functional ticket. The memories of your event will remain strong in their minds, and that’s one of the best ways to attract repeat patrons to your events in future! When you’re ready to make the leap to the next big advance in admissions products, learn more about The Cricket and request a quote here.

Fall Festival in Review: How to Get the Most Bang for Your Buck

pumpkins

A fall festival is a great opportunity for people to get together to celebrate the changing of the seasons, while also taking part in games and enjoying tasty treats and supporting your fundraiser! Whether your festival is for families within a neighborhood, a local school or college, or a neighborhood church, it is a fun way to get people together. The key to planning a successful fall festival is to embrace the prep time and be willing to think outside the box!

Organizing a fall festival is a big undertaking. In order to create a successful event early planning and organization are vital! Know your objectives! When planning try to keep in mind the size you want your event to be and what age range you are planning it for. Are you planning a kid friendly fundraiser, or a fun event that the entire family can enjoy for free? Do you want people to wear costumes to your festival? What size space will you need to hold the event successfully? By asking all of these questions, you can really design a fall festival that will work best for your target audience and yield the best return for your fundraiser.

To begin, it’s important to create a budget and stick to it. As you plan your event, involve your leaders and volunteers in the brainstorming and decision-making process.  By asking the leaders for ideas, feedback, and suggestions from the start, you’re encouraging them to offer their input throughout the rest of the event.

Then, once you have decided who those leaders are create VIP/Volunteer/Crew/Parent or other custom badges for each of your team members – this way it will be easily to spot those important people on your team in a snap! This will be especially important once the festival is buzzing with business.

Next, you will need to decide how to charge for festival games and treats. Roll tickets are the perfect solution to redeem for playing a game. If you decide there will be an all-inclusive price you could use customizable event tickets that include a stub to tear off. Make sure to spread out the festivities – you don’t want ticket sales jammed up with insanely long food lines, so make sure you have the support you will need depending on the size of the event. Make sure that you are utilizing each volunteer, and once the event starts if a particular activities becomes super busy, move team members to that area for back up support.

Third, choose a fun theme – the possibilities are endless when it comes to fall. Pumpkins, ghosts, bats, ghouls, scarecrows – oh boy! Make sure your location is large enough to accommodate your plans so you can spread out activities as much as possible.  It can be as simple or elaborate as you want it to be but make sure it’s fun for the kiddos. Decide if you want to include games, hayrides or other activities. Once you know your theme you can get your decorations, games and posters ordered. This is the fun part!  Puppet shows and face painting are budget friendly options that all kids enjoy – and of course, don’t forget to designate a part of the parking lot for trunk or treat.

Of course, always be sure to have a plan b – begin planning well in advance and give your committee plenty of time to organize, brainstorm and prepare. After all, the purpose of your fall festival is not only to give your community an event they will look forward to – you want your festival to be a fundraising success for the charity that you are raising funds for too!

Fundraising Tricks & Treats: How to Organize a School Trunk or Treat

Tricks and TreatsWith summer fading and October fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about how you can give the kids a safe Halloween experience that still lets them do all the things they love about the holiday — putting up decorations, playing games with their friends, wearing the coolest new costumes, and of course…the candy! This year, organize a trunk or treat!

Seek out like-minded parents who are willing to donate their cars for an evening of fun. You should get the word out in advance so everyone will have plenty of time to prepare. Have the kids help decorate the car trunks and truck beds with their favorite spooky decorations such as bats, ghosts, cobwebs, or skeletons! Have someone there at every car to hand out candy and treats to the kids – parents, this is your chance to get in on the fun, so get working on those costume ideas!

With a good group of committed volunteers, there’s no limit to what you can do with your trunk or treat — haunted houses, organized games with prizes, or even live music! Best of all, you can use this experience to raise money for your child’s school. Sell tickets at the “gate,” for food, drinks, and carnival games, with all profits going to the school. You can create memorable, customized tickets for your Halloween event that they’ll ship right to your door. Find local retailers who are willing to donate to a good cause and set up a raffle. The only thing kids love more than costumes and candy is winning awesome prizes (while dressed in costume and full of candy)! We have got you covered there too — you can pick up a roll of quality raffle tickets at a price that’s less than a penny per ticket!

For a safe alternative to trick-or-treating this year, try a trunk or treat! Your kids won’t get exhausted as they do when roaming the neighborhood, it’s easier to keep an eye on them, and you don’t have to worry about cars passing through. Just as importantly, it can bring your families together while raising money for your child’s favorite club, team, or school library. Use your imagination and the possibilities are endless!

 

EventD8 Has Florida’s Nightclub Security Scene Covered

Florida Nightclub

Summer is here and the nightlife in Southern Florida has heated up! With so many clubs on the nightlife scene, large venues may admit thousands of guests per night—which means thousands of IDs for door security to check and thousands of people for staff on the floor to keep track of on the dance floor and at the bar. Organized admissions policies and clear door security practices are essential for the smooth, orderly, and enjoyable operation of nightclubs. At particularly large nightclubs, like Club La Vela in Panama City Beach, FL (Florida’s largest nightclub, whose tagline is “Party With Thousands”), consistent ticketing and security credentials are of utmost importance. Ensuring that every admitted guest has paid the cover, is of legal age, and displays a drink wristband (if over 21) protects club owners and boosts business by:

  1. Protecting the club legally by ensuring that everyone being served or drinking alcohol displays the proper wristband denoting that they are over 21. Floor security can easily spot underage drinkers who aren’t sporting a brightly colored wristband.
  2. Reduces the need for additional security on roof decks and patios because only paying guests displaying wristbands can re-enter. This also means less hassle for guests who want to step outside for some fresh air because they don’t have to worry about carrying around a ticket stub or having to wait in line to re-enter.
  3. Gives guests a sense of confidence and allows them to relax and enjoy the club knowing that there are orderly security measures in place to protect them.

We sell several products tailored to meet the multi-leveled security and admission needs of nightclubs offering dancing, drinks, live music, and special events. First, our brightly colored Tyvek wristbands are quick, tamper-proof and let floor security know that guests have been properly checked at the door. Bands come in seven colors with prices as low as $.02/band. Bands can be used in a variety of ways. Club owners may simply want each guest to wear one band to signify admittance though adding an additional drink band saves bar staff time when they’re assured that a customer’s ID has already been checked once. VIP guests will stand out and can flaunt their status with a laminated VIP pass, and security crew badges offer properly displayed and clear credentials to internal and external security staff, providing for ease of operations as well as allowing guests to relax and enjoy the club.

Many of Florida’s larger nightclubs also host weekly, monthly, and one-time DJ’s or acts. EventD8’s wide selection of themed music tickets allow for quick admittance of paying guests as well as a souvenir; guests keep their bragging rights with a custom ticket stub from the best EDM show of the summer. Tickets and wristbands allow for multi-layered security and ensure club owners that no one is crashing the show—a plus for entertainers, as well.

Whether your nightclub hosts special events, VIP guests, world-class entertainers, or nightly DJ’s and dancing, EventD8 has your security covered.

EventD8 Products Offer Security Features to Protect Artists and Venues

Our tickets not only beat the competition on price, design, and quality, but also offer essential security features to provide additional security at the door. It’s important to our artists, who have put so much time, care, and energy into creating their brand and sound, to choose a ticketing company who offers security as a standard. Our custom tickets feature two gold foils on the front, sequential numbering, and a clear varnish. The gold foils, which appear as a check mark and lock, are located on the front of tickets. Ticket backs include a clear varnish reading “VALID GENUINE” across the top. The words appear glossier than the ticket stock, and can be felt by running a finger across the ticket back. Additionally tickets are sequentially ordered and venues or artists can choose the starting number; this numbering is useful for ticket sale tracking and crowd control. These security features make tickets difficult to replicate. We’ve put together the above short video to better illustrate our security features.

Our tickets can be personalized and ordered in a variety of colors, styles, and themes. Ticket designs are set against a backdrop of one of up to six colors to separate performances with multiple dates or times. This allows venues and artists to easily glance at a ticket-holder’s ticket stub and see that the color corresponds with the correct day of the event. The back of our 2×5.5” tickets includes a generic disclaimer used for most ticketed events and buyers can choose Spanish or English for this disclaimer. The 1.25” ticket stub is numbered to track attendance and has four lines on the back for use as a raffle ticket. Alternatively, vendors may choose to waive the disclaimer or send us their personal artwork or ad to be included on the back of the ticket. Custom event products are affordable, easy to personalize, and ship in 3-5 business days.

We also offer concert credentials to cover internal access to your event. These include backstage passes for VIP, security, or crew and can be used to identify volunteers, vendors, or media. These badges are laminated and sturdy and come in a choice of six colors. Personalized artwork and text can be included.

With all of the security features we offer, artists and venues can rest assured that only paying ticket-holders are making their way through the door. Our mission is to help you sell tickets and stay protected so your business can thrive. We are motivated to help you sell tickets, retain fans and attract future audiences!

The Best Rodeos to Hit the Stadium this Summer

RodeoNothing gets the folks here at EventD8 riled up like a rodeo! Whether we’re watching mutton busting or steer roping, we’re on the edge of our seats. Rodeo is the only professional sport that sprung from an industry and a way of life, and has become a real west tradition. There are too many rodeos across America to count, and while we can’t list them all here we can tell you about some annual, can’t-miss rodeos spanning all across the West.

Our top picks take place year-round, so we’ll start with the northwestern rodeos and work our way down. Washington state’s Ellensburg Rodeo has taken place for over 75 years and is second in size only to Alberta’s Calgary Stampede. This leading rodeo festival of over 600 contestants and $400k in cash prizes takes place over Labor Day weekend. Just one state east, the five-day Caldwell Night Rodeo takes place in mid-August in the Boise, ID metro area. Fans can get their bulldogging on at the Pendleton Round-Up, one of the ten largest rodeos in the world. Events take place in mid-September in Pendleton, OR—or the “The Real West”, as the town motto reads. Cowboys and girls can watch bronc and bull riding against a stunning backdrop of the sun setting over the Rockies at the Yellowstone Rodeo, where kids can also safely compete in the calf scramble.

The granddaddy of rodeos, Cheyenne Frontier Days, is an absolute must see. The annual events attract almost 200,000 guests who can enjoy rodeo events, track acts, and free pancakes! Denver’s National Western Stock Show is the second largest rodeo in the US and has been around over a century. The event boasts many kid-friendly activities, as does the Rocky Mountain Stampede, where rodeo meets fireworks, art displays, music concerts, and barbecue. Nebraskaland Days in North Platte was first established by Buffalo Bill, who considered the city his hometown. Midwestern fans also flock to Kansas’ Dodge City Roundup Rodeo, a ten day event where championship cowboys and cowgirls compete in front of 100,000 fans for cash payouts of over $200k.

At some point, all rodeo fans make their way to National Finals Rodeo—the “Super Bowl of Rodeo”. During this ten day, Las Vegas event, the country’s top 15 cowboys and cowgirls compete for the World Championships. Nevada also hosts the smaller Laughlin River Stampede, the Reno Rodeo, billed as the “wildest and richest rodeo in the West”, and Miss Rodeo America, an annual pageant where contestants compete in horsemanship, appearance, and personality. In Arizona, fans can enjoy the world’s oldest rodeo at Prescott Frontier Days and the world’s oldest, continuous junior rodeo, the Florence Junior Parada. The pageantry-lover will appreciate Tucson’s La Fiesta De Los Vaqueros.

Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo and the Southwest Exposition Livestock Show and Rodeo both take place in Fort Worth, TX and are billed as the birthplace of bulldogging and the original indoor rodeo, respectively. Finally, don’t miss the world’s largest live entertainment and livestock show at Rodeo Houston, which takes place in Houston’s 1,900,000 square foot Reliant Stadium.

Whether you’re birthing a new rodeo or running an established one, EventD8 can fully outfit your admission needs with tickets, wrist bands, passes, and more. In addition to the best prices, zero ticket-back ad fees, and numerous security features, EventD8 tickets are customizable. Vendors and venues can choose from numerous ticket designs, including four rodeo designs that capture the lone west feeling and grit of the sport. Tickets are 2.5×5” and bulk prices start as low as $25. Personalizing tickets on our website is a cinch, and each design comes in six different colors for events that span multiple days. Ticket back features include the option to include Spanish and/or English disclaimers (or to waive a disclaimer), and the option to place an ad or upload original artwork or text.
