Making Reusable Tickets
Reusable Tickets

Tickets for sessions can be sold in batches, and then accepted singly at sessions or lessons.

This reduces time taken handling money at the start of sessions, gives the club a little working cash, and can be easier for players to handle.

Tickets can be paid for online by bank transfer reducing bank charges and effort handling cash or cheques. We offer a discount for purchasing tickets by bank transfer rather than with cash or cheque at the club.

Prices per ticket can be finely adjusted as there is no need to give change when they are used. For example the internet price could be £38, the club price £40 for ten tickets. The cash table fee for a member for a single session is £4.50. We have built up to 90% payment by ticket at sessions; 49% tickets bought by online transfer. There is some effort in auditing payments and collections. We have had one cheque bounce, and one instance of money transferred to the wrong bridge club.

At our club we have been using laminated business cards since 2013. The tickets are printed with club information and an expiry date.

We create them to expire after eighteen months but always honour them even if expired. However they are destroyed once their expiry date has passed. Another club locally is aboout to use "single use" paper tickets.

This page is all about how to make them, though we will make them for you, at cost, if you prefer.

Materials and Equipment

Each of our tickets is made from a blank business card, available in sheets of 10 for computer printing (see picture), from most stationers; and a label stuck on the reverse, available in sheets of 21; and a business card sized laminating pouch. We use a colour ink jet printer and a laminator.

The business card labels are printed with the ticket front images and text.
