||I realize that you're just trying to do a bit of research here, and get as much feedback as possible, but I think this sort of thing might be frowned upon by the adequacy editors.
As to the plan:
- Where are you going to plug in the copier?
- Spend five minutes googling around for the name of the ski area plus words like "arrested," "conterfeit," "lift ticket," and so on. Some areas call the cops every time they catch someone.
- The morons they hire to check the tickets are instructed to be a little more vigilant during the holidays. Do a decent job of it.
- Make sure your copier can print onto labels without problems.
- If you can, buy labels with several different finishes-- some tickets are glossy, some are matte.
- It's rare to resell a ticket for more than ten or fifteen bucks, and people do get caught doing it. Consider omitting this step.
When you're done with all this, add up all the time you've spent driving to the store, picking out and returning the copier, and forging the tickets, and then let us know what the total is. Also let us know how many tickets you made, how much you spent on the genuine ticket, how much you sold it for (if applicable), how much you paid for labels, and how much it costs you to return the copier (restocking fee, tax, etc).
I want to know what a counterfeiter's time is worth.
