Design Design Your Ticket

Create beautiful, on-brand tickets

Use our online editor to design a ticket, or work with a graphic designer to have complete control.

Amongst the many amazing features that Guest Manager offers, the ability to fully control how the ticket looks is my favorite. Marketing and Brand Awareness is imperative from Day 1 to Day 365 and having that extra touch point once the attendee downloads their tickets is such an incredible feature. No other company offers this and if for no other reason, I would use GM for this option alone.

Reviews from the App Store

Apple App store

Great simple check in app. [..] all I needed to do was import a guest list and check them in. It was super fast with realtime name searching and synced across all of our devices.

Awesome Application!

I contacted Guest Manager about needing a solution to check in 2,500 guests. I wanted to scan guests in, instead of checking them in by name. I was able to work with them to import all my guests, design my own tickets, email them to everyone, and finally they rented me 12 laser ticket scanners to use. We scanned all 2,500 guests in just under an hour with no lines. A+ for the great support and easy solution.

Highly recommend

Worked really well for my event, I created an account online, imported my guests and emailed everyone a scannable ticket that I designed, all through the software. Then I used the app to scan everyone in. Highly recommend!

No. You can use the camera available on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod to scan tickets. The laser scanner will be faster and better on battery life than the camera.
Yes. It is very easy to switch between the scan and lookup/search mode.
If you rent scanners from us, the only other thing you will need is a WiFi connection. If you are providing your own hardware, then you will need iOS devices.
For the check in and scanning, yes. We work with the best manufacturer of barcode scanning products (Honeywell) in order to deliver you the stablest and fastest event check in and barcode scanning solution.
Yes and no. The devices will need internet to download all the tickets ahead of time. Once the data is downloaded, internet is not required. We recommend using mobile 4G WiFi hotspots to connect all the scanners to the internet, or a reliable, private Wi-Fi network at the venue.
Yes. Our solution has been used in numerous large festivals and events from 5,000 all the way up to 50,000 attendees.
The scan result is displayed on the screen instantly, because the scanner does not need to check the barcode over the internet.
