Paint & Wine Party Ticketing Made Easy
Tara in Pennsylvania recently told us that without Event Espresso, she would probably need someone part time to keep her events organized, so that’s at least $10K a year she’s saving. She knows she’s saving time, because she was able to train her management team on how to use Event Espresso for her paint & wine events, which frees her up to work ON her business instead of working IN it.
Tara’s business growth has been amazing. She started with one paint studio in April 2012 (the first independent BYOB paint studio in PA) and didn’t actually turn a profit that first year. Early 2013 she leased an adjoining suite in her complex, allowing her to host 2 parties at the same time.Paint & Wine Party Ticketing Made Easy with #PaintSip #EventTech Click To Tweet
In November 2013, Tara found another space to lease in a nearby town, which included a main studio and a smaller party room. Then in December 2014 she began our mobile paint party unit, where she brings the party to their customers, right in their home, business or any venue they secure.
Basically, what this means is that in 3 years Tara went from running up to 7 parties per weekend (Fri. night – Sun. night) to running up to 33 parties per weekend. Tara’s sales for 2014 were $540,000+.
It boggles my mind sometimes. I don’t know how I would possibly keep this all straight without my Event Espresso registration system, which allows my guests to register and pay online, and keeps track of everything for me.

Showcase Your Paint & Wine Party Events
Selling tickets and getting people to your paint party event has never been easier. However, getting the word out (marketing your event) can sometimes be a major pain. This is another area that Event Espresso excels, as it has many tools available to help you get the word out about your paint party, paint & sip, and girls night out paint party events.
Event List Display Options
Event Espresso ships with a standard event list display, where the paint party events are listed consecutively by date down the page. In addition to that, we also have several premium options available when displaying events on your Paint & Wine website, such as:
Calendar Display of Events
The Events Calendar add-on for Event Espresso allows you to display your paint party events in a way that your customers are familiar with. The events calendar makes it easy for your customers to find paint & wine events and to add your events to their own calendars, so they don’t forget!
Grid View of Events
The Event Espresso Grid View template is great way to display pictures of what your attendees will be painting in a grid like structure that link directly to the party information. What’s nice about the grid view template, is the grid dynamically conforms to the width of the page. For example, if your page width is somewhat small, then the grid view may only show two columns, whereas a larger page width will show 3 or 4 columns, automatically.
Table Display of Events
Displaying your paint party events in a simple table view is a great way for customers to see most events at one time. The Events Table Template add-on provides you with an easy to use system that allows you to change the look and feel of your event lists. It comes with a simple table template with category filters, table search, table paging, and more.
Getting People Into the Painting & Wine Party
Print at Home Tickets & Onsite Check-in
Don’t waste time printing out excel sheets, verifying payments, and crossing off names as attendees show up at the gates. You’ll look like a high tech event organizer with ticketing and scanning features available right from your paint & wine party website.
Scanning Tickets for Entry
With the Event Espresso Barcode Scanning add-on you can easily check-in attendees at any entry point. All you need is a laptop or tablet, wireless internet connection, and a simple barcode scanner.
Design Your Own Tickets
Create sweet looking tickets that can be printed at home using the Event Espresso Ticketing add-on. Add as many, or as few details to the ticket as you need/want. Such as food & beverage preferences, materials needed, or anything you can think of, really. Tickets can be used any number of ways, as we’ll discuss below.
Using Tickets as badges
Tickets used for entry can double as badges, so attendees can easily identify each other. This is great for networking among attendees, sharing information stored in QR codes, and more.
After Event Follow-up & Re-marketing
Mailing List Automation
Mailing lists are great way to follow-up with your paint party attendees. What paint & wine party ticketing software would be complete without after event follow-up and re-marketing features? That’s why we’ve made it possible for Event Espresso to be integrated with a very popular mailing list manager, called Mailchimp.
If the Event Espresso Mailchimp add-on is installed on your website, whenever someone registers for one of your paint party events, their contact information is automatically added into a specified mailing list, or group in Mailchimp. That way, when you’re ready to post your next paint & sip event, you can email all of the people who’ve registered in the past about any upcoming paint & wine party events.
Customer Relationship Management
The Event Espresso Infusionsoft add-on easily integrates with your Infusionsoft App and Merchant Account to seamlessly capture customer data, track registrations, and accept payments from your Event Espresso powered website.
With Infusionsoft sales and marketing automation software, everything you need to get more customers, grow sales and save a whole lot of time is right at your fingertips. It’s your small business CRM, e-commerce, email and social marketing solution all in one place.
Whether you are a business who sells through a website, a retail/office location or a sales team, the fastest way to discover what Infusionsoft can do for your business is to watch a quick product demonstration video.
Event Espresso No Fee Ticketing Software Saves You Money
Best of all we do not charge you per-ticket fees – a hot button issue for many paint & wine party event managers! If you have not yet chosen an online ticket software for your next paint party event, know that our yearly subscription based pricing can potentially generate additional revenue for you.
Get Your Money Sooner
Unlike other paint & wine registration and ticketing companies, who hold on to your ticket sales money until after the party, Event Espresso allows you to choose the payment processor, so the money goes straight to you as soon as tickets are sold – just like a product sale. That gives you the money you need to cover bills, pay for venue rental, and even earn interest.
And if your current paint party registration & ticketing system doesn’t provide the tools mentioned throughout this post, please contact us at your convenience, or post to the pre-sales forums and we’ll do our best to help explain how it can work for you.
