olympic ticket outrageAlmost all of the 11 million tickets for the Olympics and Paralympics will be printed by Weldon, Williams & Lick of Fort Smith, Arkansas.

The US based company, a ticket printing specialist since 1898, was awarded the multi-million-pound contract to print the tickets through the ‘Compete For’ website.

Compete For describes itself as a free service that enables businesses to compete for contract opportunities linked to the London 2012 Games and other major public and private sector buying organisations, such as Transport for London (TfL), Crossrail and the Metropolitan Police.

The Press Association quotes a London 2012 spokesman as saying: "The contract to print and fulfil the bulk of tickets for London 2012 was awarded following a thorough, competitive and open procurement process. The company which won the bid has worked on several previous Games, met all of our criteria around security, budget and scale and has specialist systems in place to personalise, print and package tickets on the scale we require."

Once printed, the tickets will be shipped 4,500 miles back to Britain which, says the Federation of Small Businesses, “is not very environmentally friendly. The Games should have been used as a showroom for British industry, so it is extremely disappointing that even the tickets have been procured overseas.”

A UK politician has described the news as "a kick in the guts to British firms."
