IMPORTANT: the PDF file generated cannot contain transparent areas (empty pixels). To prevent this, please create a white colour block in the size of the final format. 

3. Content

The elements of your design are free.

Here are some pieces of advice: 

-   Text: optimise text readability. Optimise contrast/impact of the key information

-   Images: A simple image illustrating your event and a map for orientation are the recommended maximum

To produce an optimal PDF, graphic composition should not be too rich (shading, different or multiple motifs, different shades of colour, too many images, too finely detailed image).

This will guarantee a homogeneous result when printing and good readability of all the information. 

4. Variable elements to add

Note: for a single template, the location of the variable elements must be fixed

IMPORTANT: The location of the variable elements inside the frame cannot be changed and fields cannot be added

IMPORTANT: The fields to be added to your form must be preset fields so that they can be automatically added to the e-ticket

5. General terms of sale

The below Terms of sale must be added to the e-ticket to comply with the Law. You can use your own Terms of sale if you wish. 

Terms of sale 
To be valid, the e-ticket (electronic ticket) is subject to the terms of sale of Weezevent, and possibly those of the organiser that you agreed to when ordering.
REMINDER: This e-ticket is not refundable. Unless otherwise agreed by the organiser, e-ticket is personal, not transferable or exchangeable.
CONTROL: Access to the event is under the control of validity of your e-ticket. This e-ticket is only valid for the location, session, date and hour written on the e-ticket. Past the start time, access to the event is not guaranteed and does not entitle to any refund. We therefore advise you to arrive before the start of the event. To be valid, this e-ticket must be printed on white A4 blank paper, without changing the print size and with a good quality. E-tickets partially printed, dirty, damaged or illegible will be invalid and may be denied by the organiser. The organiser also reserves the right to accept or refuse other media, including electronic (mobile phone, tablet, etc ...). Each e-ticket has a barcode allowing access to the event to one person. To be valid the payment of this e-ticket must not have been rejected by the credit card owner used for ordering. In this case the barcode is deactivated. At the door, you may need to be in possession of a valid official ID with photo. Following the inspection, the e-ticket must be retained until the end of the event. In some cases the organiser will issue you a ticket to two strains (whether or not reveal the rental fee).
FRAUD: It is prohibited to reproduce, use, copy, duplicate, counterfeit this e-ticket in any manner whatsoever, under pain of criminal prosecution. Similarly, any order placed with a way to bribe to get an e-ticket will result in criminal prosecution and the invalidity of such e-ticket.
LIABILITY: The purchaser remains responsible for the use made of e-tickets, and if lost, stolen or duplicate a valid e-ticket, only the first person who holds the e-ticket can access the event. Weezevent is not responsible for abnormalities that may occur during the ordering, processing or printing the e-ticket to the extent that it has not caused intentionally or by negligence in case of loss, theft or unauthorized use of e-ticket. 
EVENT: The events are and remain the sole responsibility of the organiser. The acquisition of this e-ticket wins if adherence to rules of the place of the event and / or organiser. In case of cancellation or postponement of the event, a refund of the ticket without costs (transport, hotels, etc ...) will be subject to the conditions of the organiser (you can find his email address above in Additional information) who receives the income from the sale of e-tickets
