Tickets

The Lee Civic Center has the unique ability to print tickets in house with our ticket printing software and printers. Any graphics, any text, anything you can think of.

We also can sell tickets online. All tickets are printed with a barcode and all tickets are scanned for entry into your event. This helps you keep track of how many tickets were sold and how many of those sold actually came to the event. 

We are also able to scan tickets purchased on any mobile device.
