Using Boca Style Tickets


Thermal tickets are printed for movies, theater performances, sporting events, festivals and museums. Want the same ticket-printing capabilities as a pro sports stadium or top movie chain? You can do this with SimpleTix.

You will need a Boca ticket printer. Boca style tickets are 2 inches by 5.5 inches. SimpleTix supports over 15 different layouts. Both vertical and horizontal style layouts. Boca ticket printers cost around $1,500, you can buy used ones for around $1,000.


You can order thermal paper in a variety of types and colors. We recommend:

  • Ticket size: 2″ x 5.5″
  • Trail edge perforation: 1″
  • Right side perf (see the white arrow in this image)

Be sure not order a layout with a double perf, which would be like the lower ticket in this image.
