    Our school director wanted a movie ticket themed post card for our school

    me and 2 other people came up with this as our final

    the spacing on the stars is off. use a grid and make sure everything is lined up properly. The ticket seems too tall if thats the idea you want to stick with. Try and condense the type and graphics so the ticket is proportional to a real ticket and make sure everything is lined up properly by using a grid in the program you used. There seems to be too much blank space since it is stretched so tall.

        The proportions are different in the PDF?

        What Abe is saying is that the ticket's proportions are wrong...

          There are way too many different typefaces on there. I believe the "Allied" and "Institute" is part of the logo, so I recommend using the official logo instead of adding your own type to it. Abe has a good point, use a grid. Always use a grid, it makes your designs much more consistent.

            much bolder white lines will help with the spacing issues as well once you fix the size. try and match them to the width of the font you chose, if not i would definitely try going bolder on those lines to help you figure out where to put everything once you line the grid up

              It's sized to a post card, about 6 x 4 inches. Gotta meet postal regs.

              I would move "Now Playing" off of the ticket onto the white background; remove a row of stars (very busy!); then resize the ticket to the proportions of a real ticket, and cant (rotate) it on the page by say 15 counter clockwise. Reposition the elementsr emaining on the ticket to balance out.

              As a finishing tough, find a crash numbering typeface for the numbers. Crash numbering is the method that numbers are actually printed on real tickets.

              If it's a post card for a recruitment event, that information should go on the other side, to the left. The right is reserved for the postal indicia/stamp and address info.

              EDIT: And yeah, the lines should be bolder.

                "Institute" isn't spelled correctly, just thought I'd bring that up since you mentioned that is your final...

                        I think you hit the nail on the head with this statement. I feel like someone should write a book titled "Dealing with Nit Picky Clients." I once freelanced for a company for over 8 months....

                        We're using a digital printer for short-run jobs and I have created a job calculator, but not sure what coverage % for C,M,Y,K to use as an average for jobs to quote customers when I don't see the artwork...
