Important: the PDF file generated cannot contain transparent areas (empty pixels). To prevent this, please create a white colour block in the size of the final format

3. Content

The elements of your design are free.

Here are some pieces of advice: 

-   Text: optimise text readability. Optimise contrast/impact of the key information

-   Images: A simple image or logo of your event and a map for orientation is all that we recommend

To produce an optimal PDF, graphic composition should not be too rich (shading, different or multiple motifs, different shades of colour, too many images, too finely detailed image).

This will guarantee a homogeneous result when printing and good readability of all the information. 

4. Variable elements to add

Note: for a single template, the location of the variable elements must be fixed


1) The location of the variable elements inside the frame cannot be changed and fields cannot be added

2) The fields to be added to your form must be preset fields so that they can be automatically added to the e-ticket

5. General terms of sale

The below Terms of sale must be added to the e-ticket to comply with the UK Law. You can use your own Terms of sale if you wish.
