Fineline Technologies Acquires CPI for Improving Complex Ticketing Processes via RFID

FineLine Technologies has acquired Consolidated Printing Inc, a provider of printed tickets for professional and collegiate sporting events and major entertainment and event venues throughout the United States.

This acquisition marks FineLine’s strategic entry into event management, an industry in which the Company can leverage its advanced data management and RFID capabilities to improve complex ticketing processes. Event management is a core piece of the Company’s strategy to expand into additional industry verticals that require stringent data management and reporting functionalities and are apt to undergo continued logistics optimization.

The acquisition of CPI will allow FineLine to offer its advanced data management and RFID production capabilities to the sports, entertainment, and event ticketing industries. 

Since 1991, CPI has built an incredible business by providing high-quality tickets to more than half of the teams in the NFL, NHL, MLB, and NBA, as well as to some of the most famous events and venues in entertainment, including the Emmy Awards, Madison Square Garden, and Carnegie Hall.

Curtis Howells and William McKeever, co-CEOs of CPI, view FineLine as the ideal partner to help grow their business both in the U.S. and abroad. In 2019, CPI has successfully transitioned more than half of the NFL teams from conventional paper tickets to RFID-enabled smart tickets.
