Why choose Orion for Transport Ticket Printing?

Smart Cards

With the constant rapid evolution of technology in the transport industry, we have made sure to keep up by manufacturing smart cards. Whilst Smart has advantages, it also has limitations, therefore we have taken the decision to not be part of the ITSO project as we believe the cost of manufacture and management will give Smartcards a limited life.

Bespoke Designs

With our expert in-house team, we are able to personalise your tickets to make them on-brand and aesthetically pleasing to your consumers. We know security and functionality are the key elements, however with our bespoke designs it will help boost consumer loyalty as some people like to keep tickets as souvenirs of the places they’ve visited. Having customers keep your ticket as a souvenir is beneficial due to your brand being in their pocket.

Keep your transport safe

Secure measures for transport is a top priority for us, and it should be for any transport company. As a company that always pushes to be innovative and provide for our clients, we host a variety of secure printing features to prevent fraud, counterfeiting and forgeries. We are completely aware that security within tickets is a major growing concern amongst transport, so as a company we are constantly committed to making sure we revolutionise the way we implement security features to our transport tickets and we will continue to keep developing them.

Transport Ticket Printing Security Features

We are able to provide various innovative security features of different levels of security. We produce thermal ticket seals with various levels of security available including fluorescents, holograms, UV, and now gold foil numbering which was originally developed for currency. These features are advanced and require several technologies and adapt knowledge to replicate, which means fraudsters will struggle to counterfeit the tickets. We also have scratch offs, which are manufactured in-house and are produced with added security features that help to prevent the date validation being tampered with. 

Our investment in web development together with our fully auditable fulfilment systems enable us to process your online sales. We have a card payment facility and a bank approved IT system.
