2x7 Event Tickets (with Numbering)
2x7 Event Tickets (with Numbering)

If you need a rush, please add rush turnaround ($25) to your order. Unfortunately, we cannot provide these tickets faster than 2 to 4 days plus shipping.

Digital proofs in PDF format will be provided to ensure the tickets appear as intended.
Consider These Art Guidelines For 2x7 Event Ticket Printing.
If these following guidelines and specifications sound like mumble rap to you, don't let them discourage you from ordering event tickets. Our crew reviews art closely to make sure your order prints as intended. If we can't adjust small artwork obstacles quickly, we will contact you before production begins.
- Set your art file with 2.127" x 7.127" dimensions. Keep critical content at least 0.25 inches away from all four edges. If you open the below templates, you can review trim lines, safety area, and perforation location.
- While starting a new design, double-check that you are working in a 300dpi environment. Many programs default to 72dpi (Photoshop) and 132dpi (Procreate). Adjust the quality setting to 300 dpi or higher. The pixel count should be around 638 x 2138.
- We prefer PDF and JPG formats. However, we welcome other file types, such as PNG and TIF.
- Try operating in CMYK color mode. For custom 2x7 event tickets, we convert all artwork to CMYK before printing starts. Converting RGB to CMYK can lead to softened colors and random color shifts. Working in CMYK color mode allows you to see a closer representation of your final prints. If you cannot work in CMYK, please consider ordering a PDF proof.
Event Ticket Templates
The template for 2x7 event tickets is different than our bookmarks. One meaningful addition includes the available areas for numbering. In the "Messages / Deadlines" area, you should indicate which area your numbers should be located in. If your tickets will be double-sided, be sure to download both templates.
The default font for the Variable Numbering portion is 14pt Calibri, black ink only. Black ink for the numbering should be considered when designing your artwork file. If your background images are dark, you may need to KO (knock out) the background image in the numbering areas so that the numbers are visible.
Choose from the nine numbered areas shown in the example below. You may choose as few or as many fields as you like. Indicate which areas you would like to utilize by naming the Column Headers on your CSV Data File with the corresponding Area Name.
(Click the below image for a larger view.)
Your data file format should be in CSV (comma delimited) format only. The below image demonstrates how to set up an excel file. Once you are done, be sure to export (save) the file as a CSV file.
Preserving 0's (example: 00001)
In order to preserve leading zeroes on your Variable Number CSV file (e.g., 001, 0001) please Format the Cells as Text before creating your numbered list.
To include leading zeros: Right-click (or control-click) on the first few cells, then Choose Format Cells > Text or Plain Text. Once your cells are formatted, proceed with creating your numbered list. You should be able to see your numbering correctly before saving your document.
Note: If you close and reopen your document or look at a preview of the document, it will appear that the CSV has reverted, and your leading zeroes were deleted. However, be assured that this is not the case. As long as you could see the leading zeros when you saved the document, your CSV has the leading zeros. It is safe to upload your CSV, and your leading zeroes will be preserved.
16pt Gloss Card
This shiny card is subtly thicker than the 14pt stock. The further rigidity prevents folds and creases. Additionally, colors appear extra vivid and glossy due to the stunning UV coating.
16pt Matte Card
The matte 16pt variant exudes professionalism and high quality. The colors in your artwork appear a little muted for a sophisticated, subdued effect. Ballpoint pens with oil-based ink and permanent markers write best on this surface.
Enjoy whopping 18pt+ cardstocks available in some postcard sizes. Usually, the 18pt C1S cardstock is convenient for projects that require a glossy front and uncoated backside.
A Printkeg artist will prepare your artwork for printing and send you a visual in PDF format via email. This usually takes place within a few business hours. The image we will email you showcases trim location and CMYK colors in a limited fashion.
