What Is a Ticket?
Think of a ticket as a form of invitation that entitles an individual admission to take part in an event. It can also be used to allow one to take part in activities such as raffles or to grant usage on certain items such as vehicles or equipment. It also usually contains all the detailed information one would need to know regarding what it's for.
How to Make a Ticket in Word
1. Use a Template
Open up Microsoft Word and then simply go to the File tab, select new, and then you'll be given a list of all the different templates that you can choose from. Although you can always make your ticket from scratch, using a ticket template will speed up the entire creation process. Click on which one you want to preview and then simply download the one you want to use.
2. Know What Ticket to Make
You won't be able to choose a template if you don't even know why you need to make the ticket in the first place. Basically, all you have to do is to know what type you have to make. Are you making a raffle ticket? A movie ticket? Or perhaps a concert ticket? Figuring this out will also help you know what information that your ticket needs to display.
3. Make the Design
If you choose to start from scratch, then you'll need to think about what kind of design your ticket should have. Whatever images you decide to use has to fit into the theme or mood that your ticket is going for. You'll also need to consider what kind of background color it should have and the resolution of the picture or pictures that you'll most likely be using. You can always check out samples of tickets to give you an idea of the type of design you can go for.
4. Provide All the Details
Now you can start inserting text into your ticket. Tickets usually use fonts such as Courier and Helvetica but it's ultimately up to you. All you have to do here is remember to remember the purpose of the ticket and present all the details that the ticket user will need to know. Be sure to include information such as the name of the event/activity, when and where it's going to happen, and even who to contact for any questions and concerns.
5. Check Before Printing
Before you save and print your work, the last thing that you are going to have to do is to check if you've made any mistakes. It's very likely that you may have made one or two errors that could potentially ruin your ticket. Simply go through all of the text and see if there are any spelling or even grammatical errors that you need to correct. Also, be sure to check the accuracy of whatever information you've placed before you start printing.
