Using TicketCreator and custom, unnumbered ticket stocks has many advantages:

You are more flexible: Buy your custom stocks once and print tickets for various events as needed It's cheaper: Benefit from huge discounts on larger orders and pay shipping only once, instead of ordering small quantities for each event More comfort for your customers: Print row and seat numbers on the tickets not just sequential numbers. That saves you also the additional fees for numbering. Use different prices for the seats No left-over tickets, print only as many tickets as you need No hassle Get stocks in different colors and use these to distinguish sections or price categories. Easy setup of even difficult seating maps

Contact your local printing company or an online printing company and ask for an offer! You can even use the backside of the ticket for advertisement to finance the tickets.

Print secure barcode tickets with copy protection


Printing secure tickets or badges, which cannot be forged or copied, has never been easier and cheaper! Just use the TicketCreator Barcode edition to create and print tickets with a unique barcode on each ticket.

TicketCreator prints on each ticket a unique 10-digit number as a barcode, which is checked at the entrance with the BarcodeChecker software and a simple barcode scanner (USB or PS/2, starting at 50,-/ $ 60,-/ 45,-), a webcam or an Android phone. Each barcode can only be used once to enter. Therefore, copied or forged tickets are rejected and your revenues are protected. By default, the tickets are labeled with random numbers with 10digits, which serve as copy protection. However, you can also use serial numbers or import other numbers from a CSV or text file (only numbers smaller than 2.000.000.000). The barcodes can be printed as Code 2 of 5 interleaved, Code 39 or QR code.

And the best thing: There are no additional costs! Printing secure barcode tickets does not causes any additional costs for special paper with watermarks, holograms, fluorescent fibers, UV inks or alike. Just use your normal printer and regular paper.

TicketCreator can also print barcode tickets as PDFs, which you can send your customers by email with your regular email program. This requires the free Bullzip PDF printer and a MAPI-capable email program (e.g. Outlook, Thunderbird, or Windows Live Mail).

If you want to print or e-mail other barcode documents (e.g. name badges, invitations) you can use BarcodeChecker and Microsoft Office.

Download the TicketCreator trial version and see for yourself. The setup includes TicketCreator to print barcode tickets and BarcodeChecker to check them.

Using barcodes as copy protection has many advantages:

Tickets are checked with the BarcodeChecker software, which is included in the TicketCreator Barcode Edition. Scan the barcode tickets with a simple barcode scanner, a wireless scanner, a webcam, or an Android smartphone. No additional hardware required. Print barcodes in the formats Code 2 of 5 interleaved, Code 3 of 9 or QR codes Barcode tickets can be checked at multiple entrances at the same time with or without a network. Ticket number can also be entered by hand if the barcode is damaged. Scan tickets at the entrance as access control and to log attendance/participation. Print barcode tickets as PDFs and send them by email with your regular email program.

Checking tickets with barcodes

Badges or invitations with barcodes

Just create an event with serial numbers and barcodes, reserve a seat for each name and print the tickets. With Microsoft Word: If you have an Excel list with names, you can generate barcodes with the BarcodeChecker software and add them to the Excel file. Then use Microsoft Word to print or e-mail the name tags, invitations, etc. Check the barcodes at the entrance with the BarcodeChecker software and a simple barcode scanner or Android phone. This allows you to install a very economical admission control system and makes sure that only authorized participants can enter the location. Show step-by-step instructions.

Registering tickets to names (Attendance list)


You can register barcode tickets to names and log the presence/attendance of the card holders at your event (with time of entry/exit). The name of the card holder can be printed on the ticket and can also be shown when the ticket is scanned at the door

TicketCreator Barcode Edition

However, you can test this feature in the trial version and all TicketCreator editions and later upgrade for the price difference to the Barcode edition. An upgrade does not require a new installation and you can continue to use all files.

Technical details
TicketCreator prints two kinds of barcodes: 1.) Linear barcodes

2.) QR codes

Code 2 of 5, Code 39 1D scanner (cheap) 2D scanner Smartphone Webcam* Yes Yes Yes Yes

QR code No Yes Yes No

* with BarcodeChecker software

The ticket number is also printed in readable digits on the ticket, which you can enter and check by hand if the barcode is damaged or unreadable. By default, the tickets are labeled with random numbers with 10digits (incl. check digit), which serve as copy protection. For these randomly generated ticket numbers, the probability that a forger guesses a valid ticket number for an event with 1000 tickets is less than 0.0000012. However, you can also use serial numbers or other numbers with up to 9 digits from an Excel file, CSV file, or text file. The barcodes for the individual tickets are already generated when the event is created, i.e. before printing. Therefore, you can already export the BarcodeChecker file and check tickets while tickets are still printed at the door. The BarcodeChecker software is only available for Windows (Windows XP, NT, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8) and Android. Windows Phone/Mobile/CE/RT and iOS are not supported.
