This is ticket hardstock concept I was messing around with for the Cleveland Browns a while back. Without access to hi-res images, I used photoshop to create the high contrast sepia sketch effect you see in the above artwork. I was pleased with outcome, especially since I used this effect on low-res images. I brushed in the background as the players fade into a Cleveland skyline including the Browns stadium. The matchup is shown by a partial view of the teams helmets visible behind a white box with the word ‘VS’ sitting on top.

I’ve made SI magazine covers and trading cards and need new ideas. I want to make photo ticket stubs for my sons youth football team. I can’t find any templates online or even the actual dimensions of a real stub. Can you tell me the actual dimensions? Any chance that you’d share your photoshop layout for the tickets. Thanks for any help or direction.

Hi Shelly, I would be glad to share this ticket design for your son’s football team. Ticket stubs can vary in size depending on how they are displayed. For example some teams create a hardstock booklet with 5 tickets shown vertically or horizontally. Many times in a book like this, a single background image is used across all 5 tickets with the game info changing from ticket-to-ticket. These booklets are often 8×10 flat and hardbound (1″) making the tickets 2″ x 7″. Some teams will use a single ticket booklet in which the design can change more often.

As far as professional sports tickets dimensions go, most of them are between 2-2.5″ wide x 7-8″ long/high

I’m not sure what software your familiar/or working with, but I would be happy to share my Browns template with you. The basic template was designed in photoshop and the information was added in InDesign.
Let me know how I can help! Thanks for checking out my designs. I’ll be adding more very soon. I would love to see your SI covers and trading cards too.

Good luck,
A Dewey
