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.

7 Ways to Fundraise for Breast Cancer Awareness All Year Long

Breast-Cancer-AwarenessIn the U.S. alone, more than 230,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Chances are you or someone you know has or will be affected by Breast Cancer making Breast Cancer Awareness super important to all women in our country. As a community we can help by raising funds to further cancer research, support those currently affected by the illness and boost awareness for women everywhere. While Breast Cancer Awareness Month may not happen until October this year – you can raise funds for this very special charity all year long. Read on for 7 of my favorite ideas for banning together with members of your family, friends and community to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness.

#1: Dinner Club

A wonderful way to stay connected with friends, family and neighbors is by hosting a monthly dinner club. Each family within the club takes turns hosting a dinner at their home or desired location for the rest of the club members. You can turn this amazing experience into a fundraising machine, by asking each family to donate a specific amount of money to join the dinner club. You could order personalized place cards for each person who joins the club and they could turn their card in at the end of the night to the family who will be hosting the next dinner – almost like a dinner r.s.v.p. card. All of the proceeds from the dinner club are then turned over to the Breast Cancer Awareness program of your choice to further their efforts.

#2: Healthy Bake Sale

Bake sales are always a fun way to raise funds for your favorite charity. Since a healthy lifestyle is based on healthy living – why not host a healthy bake sale at your church, gym, office or other place where you can offer your healthy baked goods to a large group of people. You could gather volunteers to bake up batches of healthy treats that are packaged with personalized gift tags and ready to be sold. This is also a fun event to do with your children – instead of a summer lemonade stand, they could host a healthy bake sale at the entrance to your neighborhood. You could advertise your healthy bake sale with personalized pink ribbon posters too!

#3: Partner Up

If you are a member of a yoga studio, gym, pottery studio or other establishment, talk to the owner about partnering up to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness. You could work out an arrangement for each new person that you refer to their studio, they donate a % of the membership fee to Breast Cancer Awareness. You could offer to help host a “visitor’s day”, where people from the community are offered a yoga or pottery class with all of the proceeds going to the fund. Many businesses love to donate funds to charities and you will be surprised at how many of them will say yes – just ask.

#4: Drink for Pink

Whether you host a tea party at home with only close friends and family or invite all of the women from your church, book club or mom’s group to a tea party – the fundraising opportunities are huge. This is a fun activity in general but you will definitely have a great turnout when the charity is so important to all women. You could arrange to have guest speakers, workshops or classes incorporated into the event as well. Remember to send out beautiful, personalized invitations to your tea party – asking for a donation with their r.s.v.p.

#5: Race for the Cure

October is full of Race for the Cure walkathons and marathons – however, you don’t have to wait until October to start raising funds. There are several different races available throughout the year that you can sign up for today. You can even create your own Race for the Cure by collecting donations independently from your own sponsors and then turning the money over to the charity of your choice. You could thank your sponsors by sending them all a personalized Breast Cancer thank you note complete with the number of miles that you that you covered.

#6: Raffle It

It doesn’t matter what type of event you are throwing, a raffle makes any event even better! Whether you are hosting a family reunion, back to school party or beach bash this summer, why not incorporate a raffle for Breast Cancer Awareness. You can sell raffle tickets for a large ticket item that will be raffled off at the end of the night, or you can sell food and drink tickets and throw those in a large bowl to raffle off small prizes. Either way, a raffle adds a level of excitement to your gathering and since everyone loves the opportunity to win something – you are sure to raise a bunch of funds for the cure.

#7: Book Club

Many women are members of a book club – it is a great way to meet new friends, get introduced to great books, and a fun excuse to reconnect with friends each month. Instead of meeting at a fancy restaurant and blowing a lot of money on food and drinks – host your book club at a friend’s home, clubhouse or even a meeting room at the library. Ask your book club members to donate the money they would have spent at the restaurant to Breast Cancer Awareness. As a thank you give each member a special personalized Pink Ribbon bookmark favor thanking them for their donation.
