    I would love to have my own movie tickets with my logo on.

    Is there a software for this?

    Have you any experience with this?

    Hehehe.. for a second there I thought you were talking about pirating movie tickets.

    I'm sure you can make your own tix with a good image creation/editing suite like Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop.

    Since I work in prepress, I can suggest all sorts of software packages that are insultingly expensive. [​IMG]
    I'm not sure what the standard business card size is in Sweden (you have all sorts of strange paper sizes like A4 [​IMG] ), but I have seen paper stock over here that is pre-perforated at business card size, allowing you to simply tear them off once you've printed the cards on the sheet. At 2" x 3.5", that would be 12 cards per 8.5" x 11" sheet. That may be a little large for a movie ticket, but it's probably the easiest option for printing them in your own home.
    I would assume that a Word template of some sort exists for this type of paper, since there's a Word template for just about everything. Check with your local office supply store and see if they carry that type of stock.

    GIMP is another GREAT photo editing tool. It is available on windows although it was written for Linux. And it is completely free. Chec out
    www.gimp.org
    GIMP == GNU Image Manipulation Program

    But then GNU = Gnus Not Unix, so round the next iteration of acronym decryption we go...
