FAQ’S:

How do I get my tickets once I have purchased them online?

Tickets purchased on-line, will receive an email confirmation with a link to print your eTickets from your computer.


I did not receive an email confirmation when I ordered my tickets, what should I do?

Check your spam or gray mail folder, in case it was misdirected. If you are unable to find it, email tickets@makerfaire.com to have it resent. Please include the name and email address used to order the tickets.


I am not able to print my tickets, what should I do?

Adobe has a site which reviews the common issues with printing .pdf files

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/873/cpsid_87346.html


In the article you will see the quickest resolution is to print as an image - Step 1

If this article doesn't help to resolve the issue, please let us know. We can send you the .pdf as an email attachment rather than having you access the ticket from the link in the email. And of course, if that doesn't work, we can print the tickets and get them to you by another means. Please feel free to reach us at tickets@makerfaire.com or call us at 800-998-9938 M-F 7:30 AM -5 PM (Pacific Standard Time).


The tickets have my name but I want to give them as a gift, donate, etc., can the be used by someone else?
