It can also be a good way to ensure you keep unwanted guests out of a large party. With so many uses for a ticket templates, it is a good thing that there are plenty of sample templates online for you to use.

What to Include On A Template

When you are looking for a template for event tickets, you want to ensure you find one that allows you to include all required information. For example, you want to make sure there is a spot to include:

  • The date of the event
  • The name of the event
  • The location of the event
  • The time of the event

You may also want to consider putting the address on the event, or putting some type of catchy phrase or slogan on the ticket itself to make the event more appealing. If you have given your event a special title, you can also include that took.

Finding an Event Ticket Template

There are several online websites where you can find customizable event ticket templates. For example:

  • Microsoft Office features printable event ticket templates that can be added using your Microsoft Word software program. Editing is sample and intuitive for anyone who knows how to use MS Word and there are different shapes, sizes and styles of tickets.

The Paper Stock also sells special perforated paper you can print your tickets on if you are interested in that option for printing your tickets.

Ticket Size

The size of your event ticket will dictate how much information you can put on it. A smaller ticket may be easier to create, print and collect at the door but a larger ticket can allow you to give guests more details.

Think about printing costs and cutting the tickets apart when you create them. If you make a smaller ticket, you use less paper, which can potentially cut down on printing costs. However, it may be more difficult to cut the tickets apart if they are small- you can use a paper cutter, but that may not be precise and you don’t want your tickets to have jagged and uneven edges.


You will have to have a paper copy of your ticket, so you will need to plan for printing once your ticket is done. You can print either in house or have a professional print, so you will need to decide what is most cost effective. Consider printing your ticket on heavier paper or special paper to ensure that it is easy for people to hold and bring to the event. You may also want to think about printing the ticket on special colored paper to make it more visually appealing for those attending.

Other Considerations

If you are hosting a large event, you want to make sure no one copies or makes unauthorized representations of your ticket so they can sneak in. Do this by creating a unique or hard to replicate design, by including people’s names on the tickets, or by including a serial number or some other means to check whether the ticket is legitimate or not.
