Your music tour, sporting event, or festival is a very special event and requires careful planning to go off without a hitch. Part of the planning includes finding a provider of secure credentials to keep everyone honest and safe. You need event security printing that is fast, affordable, accurate, professional, and personable.

You also need to be aware of some common pitfalls when selecting a security printing company.

Having been in the business for so long, we’ve witnessed and heard tales of event planners and band managers proverbially skin their knee by making some common and easily avoidable mistakes. We’ve compiled a list of three common mistakes that you should avoid:

1 Don’t choose a gang-print shop for event security printing. Those guys don’t understand what it’s like to plan and hold an event. They’re out of touch, because they only deal in volume. Having a personable service like RockStar Passes ensures that your call will be answered when you need to talk shop. The super cheap guys that we’re talking about often don’t offer security features and offer flimsy products that are easily copied and/or destroyed.

2 Don’t allow your passes to be copied by scammers and plagiarists. If you’re dealing with artists, performers, or VIP’s, this is especially critical. Your passes should be equipped with one or more security features, such as holographic or standard foil, holographic lamination, variable data QR codes, graphics, or photos. We give you the option to keep everyone honest with the most advanced maximum security measures.

3 Don’t sacrifice security for price or turn-around time. Deal with a consistent vendor that understands your needs. Providing accurate, affordable and secure event credentials in a timely fashion requires a printing vendor that has a proven business process with access to the highest quality security materials and printing equipment. Some print shops might be offering to do your security printing on the dirt cheap, but we advise against that — because it might be their first rodeo.
