Should I include a photo of the bj that secured the ticket for me, 'cause I'd rather not.....

I think we ask about emails, first.

I'm fairly certain it doesn't go into tickets without warning.
But I may not have been paying attention.

Definitely not! I was hoping I could get Wendy's number though, it sounds like she could use a friend right about now. Hmmmm wonder if I should try to get a ticket through STEP and gift it to Wendy.

I'm trying to figure out why you did such a nice job cutting that out of the paper... :wink:

I can reveal that the above image is not the real ticket. However, real images will likely start surfacing in the very near future :)

I'd be pleased if it ruins even one sale for a counterfeiter.

I kinda want to know where that image on Bbadger's fake ticket came from... It's kinda cool.

Probably from some asshat counterfeiter. Floating around pictures on the internet might possibly help confuse the unsuspecting person doing a quick search into thinking it's legit. Usually if something's done as fan art or their own mock-up (Behance or DeviantArt style), the artists would have their name on it someplace.

I meant the image on the ticket, not the image of the ticket. That image on seems vaguely "Little Nemo" although it's not. I'm curious as to era, ect.

I just sent in my $4800.00 for two ultra-super-pre-mium 2015 tickets.
And $40 for a god damn fucking doo-doo head vehicle pass.

I used the "Lurching Dirigible" from Rotten.com's Penny Postcards site. There are other neat postcards on there that you can look through.

That postcard in particular kind of looks like the playa at night -- but with more airships and kids. There are some enhancements done to make it look like there's inlaid foil in the graphic and text, as well as a fake perforation where the stub would go.

Awesome job Bbadger. You've got my support for when we begin printing out those tickets. What can you do in order to counterfeit vehicle passes?

I don't think anyone will be counterfeiting those because they'll probably be available in unlimited quantity in the OMG sale. Also, I'm not sure what they look like or what the dimensions are. Who knows if they're even extensively decorated!
