One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

2011 San Diego Chargers Season Tickets

I haven't been excited about football until I got my hands on these. 2011 San Diego Chargers Season Tickets. This year's marketing slogan, "Bolt Up!". I'm not going to lie; the lockout did leave a sour taste in my mouth and I frankly didn't care for either side. The feelings and passion for football did come back as I held the tickets in hand and in all honesty, I can't wait for the real first game to start now. But this post is about the ticket package and design and for a lack of better words, show and tell.

As I opened the envelope and pulled out the vinyl envelope containing the ticket materials, my first impression was that the design was more colorful and bold compared to the past designs. My second impression was how cheap the vinyl envelope was also compared to past ones. Mine didn't hold up well. The bottom seal basically opened up and now have no way closing it. You can kind of see what I'm talking about by looking at the photos compared to the sides. And that really sucks as I'm a total sucker for branding and packaging.

The above photos show some of the extras that were thrown into the season ticket package. One is a sheet of stickers in various sizes with this year's saying "Bolt Up". Man I got to say, the blue is kind of bright, at the same time, I'm really digging it. Not like the regular stickers, next up are the black "Bolt Up" eye black patches to sport when you go to the game. These aren't your regular sticker paper too. It's pretty good quality stuff. Then we have the "Bolt Up" stencil. You basically punch out the white area of the stencil and then spray away. I can see people getting carried away with this and spraying everything. HAHAHA!

And now onto the important part of the package, which is the tickets itself. I'm sorry to say, it didn't impress this season ticket holder. The ticket design of these tickets could have been the best one designed to date except for some things. I really don't understand the use of fans as part of the design on season tickets and not the use of players? I don't want to see fans on my tickets when I paid good money for them. That really bugs me. I know it doesn't show it, but a nice element that they did use as part of the design was the use of the emboss effect around the text and fans. It's such an awesome touch and would have put the design over the top if the photos used were of players instead. So, personally, they missed the mark on that big time. I also find the game info a bit small. It's safe to safe that I'm disappointed in it. But I'm sure others may love it...

  1. I'm sorry you didn't like these tickets. I just realized that a friend and I are on one of them which to me is pretty cool! If you happen to save your old tickets after the game I would really really like to have the ones I'm on... Or maybe you have a friend that does? Any help would be appreciated! The tickets were for the chargers against the ravens in Dec 2011.

    Thanks so much!
