Our stickon passes will stick to you like glue.

With the invention of rayon satin StickOn Passes in 1974, OTTO was dubbed “Creators of the Backstage Pass.” Designed for one-time use, but kept by fans and collectors for life, our proprietary adhesives stick to clothes and won’t fall off.

Embossed Stickies:
Stickon passes showing Embossed_OttobugOUR MOST POPULAR AND ECONOMICAL satin cloth alternative. Otto’s premium, custom material stickon still has the look of rayon satin, but with far superior color matching. Best of all, OTTO’s Embossed Stickies are more eco-friendly and less expensive than our satin stickon pass. Not only that, but we have added a new feature. Our private brand stock is made with the Otto logo debossed into the surface as an anticounterfeit measure.

We can hot stamp foil, die cut shapes and personalize dates or barcodes with outstanding results.

Satin Cloth StickOn:
Unlike cheap, commercial rayon satin passes, OTTO’s Stick On Passes don’t fray and markers don’t run. And… when you specify satin with us, you get satin.

Luggage tags typically include name, address and phone number to contact if luggage, bag or equipment is found. These tags are extremely durable and will last for years.



OTTO can print for you the most beautiful hard tickets from the smallest club to the largest stadiums in the world. Over the years, we have ticketed events by the Rolling Stones, the Grateful Dead, the Police, as well as the downtown cinema series. If you’re at all concerned about the image of your event — and why wouldn’t you be? — you could do a lot worse than put some of these beauties in the hands of your attendees.

Standard Sign Sizes: 8 ½” x 11″; 11″ x 17″; 12″ x 18″ and 18″ x 24″.



Posters by OTTO are designed and printed with the same fussy attention to quality and detail as are our passes. They have also been well-known in certain circles for just as long.

While we work for the striking image, the thing we never forget is that the purpose of a poster is to sell tickets. It does no good to that end if it’s not readable and if it can’t be stapled up on a phone pole and read by all passersby.

Don’t forget to ask your OTTO rep about the possibility of laminating posters and handbills to add that extra bit of pop.


OTTO has the ability to produce your tour itinerary books, from cover to binding with all the high-touch service you’ve come to expect from us. Ask your rep for details.

Bubble Badge™ — World’s Most Secure Badge

Bubble Laminates

Counterfeit badges and tickets continue to plague bands and festivals. There are websites and blogs that tell kids how to make counterfeit badges.

We needed to develop an added security measure that the naked eye could identify yet could not be reproduced. So, we molded a bubble to the lamination film to make a one piece badge. We encapsulate custom art or logos in a clear, flexible, synthetic, polyurethane bubble that is designed to dent and rebound instead of scratching. It is clearly visible to security and virtually impossible to fake, and it looks and feels amazing. Clients absolutely LOVE them!

Joshua Hassell of the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tour reports “Everyone including the band and Tom Petty love your laminates so much. I think they are giving them away like candy…”

Al Santos of the Bob Dylan tour praises the security aspect of the mere presence of a bubble on a pass, saying that he has occasionally forgotten to put a bubble on a pass and had them come back to him — thanks to vigilant security folk who were that much more easily able to spot a wrong pass.

We can produce any color or shape, in plain, or holographic foil.

Other options include: anti-counterfeit custom shapes, barcode, RFID (radio frequency identification)
