Design Tickets

Halloween Event Tickets

Halloween is right around the corner. And we’re sure you’ve already started making preparations to make the celebrations merry (or rather spooky) too!

As a part of the same, you want to send out invitations to your friends, family, colleagues, or a client’s guests.

So you’re looking for a suitable tool to help you out. You’d want to make the guest passes functional and appealing at the same time.

That means you’d want them to allow only authorized guests to enter the party. In addition, also want to design the tickets at the same time.

In this article, you will see how to create Halloween event tickets for your guests. Let’s get started.

A. Halloween event tickets that come with unconventional perks

Most event organizers and hosts use image designing tools such as Canva and Adobe to create and design the tickets.

While these tickets serve the basic purpose, they have many drawbacks. For example, they don’t usually provide event security. With them, you need to manually verify the guest details.

And let’s be honest, it takes a lot of time with pretty much of scope for trespassing. So you should rather look for a solution that offers:

1. No unwelcomed guests

Make sure the tickets you create provide security against unwelcome guests. And this should be done without much manual effort being required.

For example, Ticket Generator helps you create tickets powered by QR Code technology. This QR Code has a unique QR Code. As an event coordinator scans this QR Code, she sees if the ticket is valid, duplicate, or invalid.

No need to manually verify the details with the database. Also, scanning the QR Code hardly takes a second or two.

Now since the whole guest validation becomes fast, you’d see little to no queues at the entry gate. Isn’t that great?

2. Design that you like

Functionality doesn’t mean you need to compromise on design customization. Everyone loves personalized tickets designed as per the event theme after all.

So look for a tool that offers you the same. In fact, see if it helps you design the tickets from scratch by adding event details, colors, and logo to it.

In addition, you may also want to see if it helps you use your readymade design as a template.

3. Monitor audience behavior

After you’re done with the event, you should monitor the event analytics too. This is especially true if you’re an event organizer.

That’s because event analytics helps you know how did the event perform. For example, how many people came, the time they arrived, how many entries were valid, invalid, and duplicate, etc.

4. No holes being burnt in your pocket

While all the features we just discussed sound expensive, that doesn’t need to be the case.

Look for a solution that offers you the most but is affordable too.

One such tool is Ticket Generator. It does not need you to get an expensive setup on board to make all these arrangements.

All you need is a smartphone to scan the tickets and see if they’re valid. In fact, all you need to pay for is the tickets you create. You’ll get the rest of the features for free.

And the best solution would be one that doesn’t need any ongoing subscription. It would be rather the one that needs you to pay as you go.

Now that you’ve learned all the basics, the next step is to get started with creating tickets. Now you can get started on finding a suitable service provider. In this article, we’ll be using Ticket Generator to give you a demo on how to create tickets for your Halloween event.

C. How to validate tickets

As an event manager, you’d have to validate the ticket to authenticate entries.

To do it, you’ll first have to add coordinators for the event within the Ticket Generator. Once you do it, they’ll get authorized to validate the tickets. Here’s how to do it:

1. Go to the Manage Event section from the dashboard

Manage Event

2. Select the required event and click on three horizontal dots under the More option

3. Now click on Add/Edit Coordinator

Here, you can specify the email address of each coordinator. The coordinators will then receive an email invitation using which will have to log in to the Ticket Validator app on their phones

4. Next, they can install the app on their smartphones via Google Play Store or Apple App Store and log in

5. Now they can open the app to select the event they need to validate tickets for. They can then click on Scan QR Code and get started with validating the tickets

That’s it. That is all you need to know about event tickets in PDF format. You can now create high-quality printable tickets for your event.
