• Offer scratch cards to your employees as an incentive contest to see who can sell the most Group Sales tickets, or as a safety contest to keep workplace injuries down and morale up!

• Celebrate your playoff season and generate even more excitement and community involvement by handing out scratch off cards to your fans at every home playoff game!
SPONSORS LOVE SCRATCH OFF CONTESTS!
This sports promotion can be sold to your sponsors as a single line item or grouped with any of your existing sponsorship packages. For an additional amount of money, their package now includes a scratch off contest!

SCRATCH OFF CONTEST PRIZE IDEAS
Make every card some kind of winner! Involve your team's sponsors, ticket sales department, and vendors for the prizes. Everything is donated. Give away old merchandise, previous giveaways you still have in stock, and give away a lot of tickets!! Buy one, get one free offers. Or if you book a group event and buy at least 10 tickets, you get 10% off. You can also have bar code discounts as prizes for redemption in your team store and sponsor's stores.
HOW TO ORDER
Use scratch off sports promotions for one event only or in bulk for multiple games. If you're a minor league team and need 1,000 cards, a pro team needing 20,000 cards, or if you're a college football team and need 100,000, we are able to design, print and ship within a week! If you involve a major sponsor (like the Dewar's ESPN scratch off card below) and need cards for a series of games, we will collate the scratch off cards by game and drop ship them to you in time for each game. This way you have an equal distribution of prizes for each game.
Scratch Off Sports Promotions
The Star Card program won 1st place by the International Amusement Park Association as their best employee incentive contest! Scratch Off Works designed and printed the Star Card for Whiting's Foods. This company incentive can be customized for your company, using your logo, artwork and prize breakdown!
What makes this employee incentive program so special? It's the unique combination of making the cards an interactive scratch off and giving the card to the employees whenever they do something good. It's that instant recognition + scratch offs that makes this program so successful! The employees are handed a scratch off card when their manager witnesses them doing something good. It can be anything that earns them a card; for example, spending extra time with a client, having perfect attendance for a week, making or exceeding quota, having a positive attitude, being safe in the workplace, etc. Whatever issues you have identified that you want to improve with your workforce, that's what you focus this program on. Because your employees are immediately rewarded and recognized for their behavior, it acts as a positive reinforcement. Winning prizes can range from cash to a paid half day off to logo items from your company. The non-winning cards can be collected and entered into a drawing. This is an employee incentive program that really works!
HOW MANY DIFFERENT PRIZES CAN I HAVE?
We are completely flexible over here, so you can have have as many prize versions as you want. At no additional cost. While most promotions average 3-10 different prize variations, if you want, every scratch off sports promotion can have a completely different prize or unique code! All we need is a text list or a spreadsheet showing the breakdown of your prizes (what they are and how many of each prize you would like us to print). If you need help, just call us. That's what we're here for!
HOW MANY SCRATCH AREAS CAN MY CARDS HAVE?
You can have as many scratch areas on your scratch off contest cards as you want, in any shape and size that you want, and anywhere on the card that you want! We don't have a template, so all of our sports promotions are custom to fit your design and your needs. We don't charge more for multiple scratch areas, so whether you want multiple scratch areas like Duke Energy, 3 boxes where you scratch off and try to match 3 to win, or if you want 50 donations spots on a fundraising card - whatever it is you want, we can produce it for you!
WHAT KIND OF PRIZES CAN I GIVE AWAY?
You can give away any type of prize that you want. We will print text, variable data, barcodes, QR codes, symbols, pictures...the sky is the limit!
CAN I HAVE UNIQUE CODES AND VARIABLE DATA PRINTED BENEATH THE SCRATCH AREA?
Yes, absolutely! We can use your variable data and unique codes or we can generate it for you. We can print unique codes on every card, serial numbers, control numbers, user names, login passwords, alphanumeric random codes - whatever you need.
HOW IS THE VARIABLE DATA GENERATED? AND IS IT SECURE DURING PRINTING?
We can use your PIN numbers and variable data or we can generate the PIN numbers for you. We do not charge for generating data. We will provide you with an Excel spreadsheet with the unique codes, user names, serial numbers, prizes, etc. During production, your variable data is only seen by our head programmer and our production manager. We take the security and confidentiality of your scratch off promotion as seriously as you do.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR SCRATCH OFF LATEX INK AND LABELS?
Some companies use stickers or “security labels” to cover the PIN numbers and variable data. These are labels that are not completely secure. They have the risk of peeling off if the weather is too hot or cold, and they are susceptible to tampering. The material we use is a latex ink which is 100% opaque so it completely conceals the codes printed beneath it. The material adheres directly to the paper so it will not peel off. It scratches off clean, with no residue on your fingers. Most importantly, our ink reduces the risk of tampering or accidentally scratching off the numbers printed beneath it.
CAN I CUSTOMIZE THE SHAPE AND SIZE OF THE SCRATCH AREA?
Yes, you can! Since we don't use labels for the scratch off area, you aren't limited to a specific size or shape. The sky is the limit! We will print any size and any shape scratch off area that you want. There is no additional charge to have a shape. We can even cover the entire card so the whole card scratches off!
This is a scratch off contest promotion we did for Disney - the entire Aladdin's lamp was printed in a gold latex scratch off ink, with a black overprint on top to give the lamp dimension and some design.
IF I WANT CONTROL NUMBERS ON MY CARDS, WHERE WILL THEY BE PRINTED?
If you would like control numbers printed on your cards, they can be located on either side of the card and anywhere you want on that side.
WILL MY WINNERS BE SORTED FROM MY NON-WINNERS?
It's up to you! We can keep everything separated by prize version or we can mix everything together for you. We can also collate your custom scratch off cards into smaller batches and drop ship them to multiple locations. Just let us know what you need and we'll package your cards however you like.
DO YOU CHARGE A SET-UP FEE?
One reason our clients like working with us, and why they return over and over, is we don't have any hidden fees. So the price we quote you, is always our best price. This means we never have any set-up fees. It also means we have no rush charges, no cost for design work or proofs, no additional cost for multiple prizes or art versions. What you see is what you get with us and we always give you our very best in everything we do!
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME? DO YOU HAVE A RUSH CHARGE?
Our turnaround time for quantities under 100,000 cards is 1 week or less. If you're looking to order more than 100,000 cards, we can usually start shipping partials within 3 days of beginning production. There are no hidden charges in our quotes. This includes no rush charges. If you want to start a safety incentive program at your company, we can have cards designed, printed and delivered to you within 1 week. Your safety record will start improving this month!
CAN YOU DESIGN THE CARDS FOR ME?
