Use Canva’s drag-and-drop design tools to create amazing tickets everyone will want as a keepsake.
A ticket – be it for an event or raffle – always serves a distinct purpose beyond the obvious confirmation of entry. It’s a tangible representation of what your event is about and a wonderful opportunity for you to make an impression long before the actual event date.
With Canva on your side, you won’t have to hire a graphic designer to create your tickets. Browse through professionally-made ticket templates created by our amazing team of designers. Move or change design elements like images, icons, colors and fonts then share your brand new ticket design with the rest of the world to drum up even more excitement.
Canva’s amazingly simple drag and drop design tools give you full control over your design. Once you’ve chosen a ticket template to start with, you can customize everything from colors to fonts to images. Remove elements you don’t want or need or browse through Canva’s amazing media library filled with over a million images, illustrations and icons to add some more. Choose from over a hundred font types in Canva or change up colors by clicking on the color wheel tool. Experiment with more design tools and features to truly turn a template into your very own design.
If you’re holding a branded or company event, you’ll want to make sure everyone knows who organized it. Upload your logo into Canva then drag and drop it into your design. Ensure that your tickets reflect your brand palette through the color wheel tool. You can easily change an element into your brand colors by inputting a color hexcode into the box. Canva Pro users have the ability to create a “Brand Kit” which saves all their brand assets including logos, custom fonts and color palette, ready to be applied across all designs.

Work on your design projects with your team by giving them editing access. Just head over to the “Share” button, choose the dropdown menu to give edit or view access to anyone. Since Canva works on the cloud, your colleagues can edit your design from any desktop, laptop or even iPhone, iPad and Android device. Once you’re all happy with the design, download it as a high-res PDF file to be printed and distributed or upload it straight to your social media accounts to get the word out.
A ticket should include your brand logo or an image, a color and typography theme, engaging text with essential information about the event such as date and time, a serial number, perforations for a stub and a barcode if applicable.
Standard event tickets with stubs are 1.97 x 5.63 inches. The most common stubless ticket size is 5.5” x 2.” If you want to include room for ads, you might make them larger, at 3.5” x 8.5.” If you add information on both sides, you may not need a larger size.
To create a ticket template, first decide on the type of ticket you’re designing, whether it’s for a concert, contest, sporting event, festival, cinema or raffle. Then use design software to format your ticket size and shape, choose a color and font scheme and add graphics and text.
