Event Ticket Quality & Security

myZone event tickets are the highest quality and one of the most secure tickets in the industry for several reasons. All tickets have UV coating, 300 DPI, include an anti-counterfeit foil, and are thermal printed on high quality ticket stock with security features you can feel confident with!

WARNING: Many other ticket printing companies print full colour digital printed tickets which are extremely easy to counterfeit using a scanner and a full colour laser printer.  The key advantage to thermal printing is that it warms up the heat-sensitive card stock and leaves the image behind. myZone incorporates thermal printing with features such as card stock, UV coating, custom foils, and unique numbering to produce event tickets that are completely safe and secure!

Here is some additional information on these various security features:

UV (available only on clubZone Event Ticket stock): As an additional security measure (to prevent counterfeit ticket printing), each custom event ticket is coated with a UV logo pattern. You can check whether the ticket is real or not by holding it under a black light.

Custom Foils: Each custom event ticket has a foil area where we can put your company logo (using the thermal print heads). Alternatively, we can put our own security marking to protect your tickets against illegal reproduction and distribution.

Thermal Printing: All custom event tickets are printed using a thermal ticket printing process. A thermal printer (or direct thermal printer) produces an image by selectively heating coated thermochromic or thermal paper as it passes over the thermal print head. The coating turns black in the areas where it is heated, producing an image.

The heat resistant properties of thermal stock mean that if a ticket is run through a laser printer for counterfeit reasons, the entire ticket would turn black. To test for thermal stock, you can scratch the surface roughly with a key or coin and a black mark will appear on the ticket. We’ll add security features to protect your paper event tickets against any fraudulent activities.

Perforated: Each ticket has a perforated stub that can be used so that the ticket holder can retain proof of admittance while you collect the ticket.  This is also handy for door prizes, or for auditing admission staff.

Uniquely Numbered: The front of every ticket has a unique number printed on it to help identify counterfeit paper event tickets. This is also ideal for internal inventory control purposes.

300 DPI: There are two common quality standards for thermal printing: 203 DPI and 300 DPI.  DPI = dots per inch, or the resolution of printing.  The higher the DPI, the higher quality the printed product.  All custom event tickets are printed using 300 DPI printers to ensure a better quality finished product.

Quality ticket stock: While thin ticket stock is cheaper to produce, clubZone only uses the highest quality 100lb paper stock to ensure each ticket has a quality feel to it.

Full Image/logo integration: You have the option of choosing to include graphic, images and/or logos on your tickets.
