I'm producing another magic night here in Kalamazoo Next month. You can read about it here:

http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......forum=31

I designed my tickets to start selling them but I've looked at all the office supply stores in my area and can't find any.

I was thinking about making them out of plain business card stock. Do you think this will due? Or do you have any other suggestions? It's only a few weeks away and I've got to start selling tickets to get people in there.

Just print them on card stock and cut them down to size. That's what I do and it works just fine.

Good luck. Mark.

I've purchased real ticket "stock" from a local office supply store, "Office Depot". It has a lot more space for stuff you normally want to put on tickets. And, it includes a tear of stub and each ticket is sequentially numbered. Easy to format in MS WORD. I've used them several times for IBM Magician of the Year Gala events, including the honoree's picture, etc; on the ticket. They don't cost much more than business card stock. Sorry, I don't have a full package on my shelf at the moment, so I can't give you an item number, but it is from Office Depot and is called "ticket stock".....perhaps you can find them on their web site. I really like them. Good luck!

In my experience, the do-it-yourself ticket stock looks exactly like the do-it-yourself business card stock. That is, cheap and fly-by-night. Having "real" tickets printed (with a hologram and everything) is inexpensive and, in my opinion, gives a better impression of the value of the show.

But if you're only selling tickets to other magicians, and not the general public, never mind. Magicians are used to cheap and fly-by-night. Smile

Check these guys out: http://www.eventbrite.com/

Kind of like PayPal, where they take a percentage of the ticket sales, but they do all the work, you can buy/find a list of email addresses for potential people who would be interested in your show and send them an invite through event brite.
