How to select the smart ticketing format?


Confidex offers several ticket sizes and form factors for customers with different ticket issuing procedures. Tickets can be supplied on reel and fanfold format for the automatic fare collection and ticket vending machines as well in single-cut and carnet formats for manual issuing processes.

Depending on your ticket lifespan requirements, whether the use is occasional or semi-occasional, the ticket material selection can be chosen from reinforced paper to PET materials. All of the materials enable good resistance against normal wear and tear and depending on the materials, ticket usage can vary from 6 months up to 5 years.


Confidex is experienced in customizing tickets for various customer requirements. Tickets are typically electrically encoded and containing certificates, fare, trip, value or validity date data. For your customer specific personalization we offer:

  • Offset type 4 colors artwork printing
  • Thermal paper option
  • Post-printing for IC UID number, and/or customer specific incremental serial number, etc.
  • Electrical encoding for the IC.

Confidex tickets are delivered fully customized and packaged for distribution. Packing of the tickets is done according to your specification for direct loading process into automatic fare collection equipment.

For ticket tracking visibility, we offer:

  • The electrical format log file from the delivered tickets can be provided e.g. in CD ROM format, which enables full traceability service through the IC serial number.
  • Full box numbering scheme and traceability is also supported by the manufacturing operations.
