Making Your Ticket Booth Stand Out Above the Rest and How to Attract Customers with Style

Sometimes, it really is the littlest things that can make the biggest difference. The possible aesthetics of your ticket booth designs are limited only by your imagination (and let’s be honest, your budget as well). Let’s look at six ticket booth design ideas that you can use to help attract customers to your event or get them more excited about your attractions.

Idea #1: Add Color and Graphics.

Something as simple as choosing an appropriate color scheme, incorporating your company logo or some artwork on the exterior of your ticket booth can have a dramatic impact on its ability to attract customers. Signage above the booth can also improve visibility and help direct people to the appropriate location.

Keep in mind that when choosing the font for your signage it needs to be clearly legible. A poor font choice and improper letter spacing can contribute to unfortunate end results. Let’s not forget that you’ll also need exterior lighting to increase visibility both to and from your booth at night.

Idea #2: Keep Functionality in Mind.

It’s not purely aesthetics that you need to focus on when designing the optimal ticket booth. Functionality also plays a pivotal role in successful ticket booth design architecture. For instance, ticket windows come in a wide variety of options to best suit your needs.

Some popular ticket window options include:

  • full height sliding windows
  • small sliding windows at the bottom with a fixed glass on top
  • a complete fixed glass with a microphone or speak hole and a transaction slot

Keeping in mind your intended purpose and locale when designing your perfect booth will help you determine the most appropriate window setup. An open full window provides more accessible space, but is not so secure when dealing with a lot of cash in a bad neighborhood.

If you are dealing with a significant amount of cash, the safest option is a complete fixed glass window that cannot be opened, with a microphone or speak hole in the center, and a small transaction slot at the bottom to process payments and receipts. If you feel that more protection is needed you can upgrade to tempered glass or check out our article on bullet resistant booths. The fixed glass and transaction slot window layout strikes an important balance, offering the ultimate in security but without the intimidating façade of an armored Brinks truck.

You may also want to consider installing a retractable awning to help draw attention, keep customers coming in the rain, and to make sure your ticket sales aren’t all washed up.

Idea #3: Big Plans for Small Spaces

While ticket booths come in all shapes and sizes, they are usually relatively small and thus space is often at a premium. When you have a lot to store in your booth it is important to ensure easy access to necessities, and sometimes you need to get creative and maximize the space to hold even more. This is where clever design storage can come into play.

As an add-on feature, consider installing additional shelving inside the booth and foldable shelves outside the booth for customers to sign receipts or put down their items while paying. Once you’ve got your shelves all set up, keeping them well-organized and clutter-free will increase productivity. With these easy to install under shelf baskets, you can quickly and effortlessly provide some much needed additional storage space.

Idea #4: Ticket Booth Ideas You Can Use for Uncommon Solutions to Common Problems

Sometimes organization needs to go beyond simple shelves, and you have to get truly creative in using multi-purpose items to keep everything in its place. An inexpensive over-the-door organizer can free up valuable counter space while keeping office supplies and other items easily accessible.

By simply elevating some equipment such as a computer screen with a monitor stand or using something unconventional like a cupcake stand you free up space underneath for additional items! And don’t underestimate the value of a few wall-mounted hooks or peg boards! Or you can go all out with add on features like the key hooks seen in the picture below. If you’ve been pegged as a bit of a handyperson, you can get creative and follow this tutorial to make your chairs multitask – just as well as you do, by giving them a hidden storage compartment! Or have your ticket booth custom designed with all the storage accessories that you can possibly need so it’s ready to work as hard as you need it to the instant that it is delivered.

Idea #5: Maximum Comfort with Minimum Space

Functionality is very important, especially when space is a concern, but keeping your employees happy is even more important because it will help them work more effectively and offer better customer service, which translates to more money in the long run. By incorporating some inexpensive and minor interior design features such as air conditioning/heating, comfortable chairs/stools/desks, a mini refrigerator, a safe place for employees to stow their personal belongings, and a lot of natural lighting, your staff will be much happier, and happy employees are good for business!

Idea #6: Keep Everyone Safe and Sound

Keeping employees contented is great, but keeping them safe is essential! Idea #6 brings safety features into play. Your ticket booth can be designed with a variety of additional safety features, such as exterior lighting (it’s not just for aesthetics), closed-circuit monitors, fixed windows, locking doors, and safe boxes for storing cash. By incorporating multiple safety features into your ticket booth design, you can have peace of mind by making the most of the security options available.
