In the example I explained, I was using a list, but did it with un-linked text boxes using “continue from previous number” and “continue numbers across stories.” I’m guessing that there is no way to tell InDesign that even though there are 4 text boxes on the page, that there are two different lists? I’d probably have to just create two threaded stories for that scenario to work.
    Numbering raffle tickets can be a rough project to tackle without the right tools. Luckily you can number raffle tickets or any other document or form with a desktop publishing software program you may already own like Microsoft Word, Publisher, Adobe Indesign or CorelDraw or any desktop publishing software that has a mail merge function.  Then all that is needed is a program that can create the mail merge file you need to number your tickets like starting number, ending number, prefix and so on. And for that program we suggest Number-Pro.
We ask our customers to approve an electronic version of their proof before we begin processing anything, and we never begin printing until you're satisfied with the proof. It's got to be right before we start! Proofs usually take a day or two to create, depending on how much design and layout work your Event Program requires. If you a want a printed proof, we're more than happy to send it via Next Day Air. Remember, this will delay the start of processing by at least one business day.
Actually, you can purchase online tickets in any quantity over 50. We've replaced our drop down quantity lists with text boxes where you can enter just the number of tickets that you need. Most of our online templates are available in any quantity over 50 items. However, Posters and Flyers can be ordered in quantities as low as 5. Since our per item price drops as your order gets bigger, in many cases, you can order more items for the same price.
The exciting thing about our templates is that you are free to customize them, they are easy to download, and you can use them over and over again. These templates will save you time and money and so easy to use, that you can grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit down, relax and create your raffle tickets. Remember you might find other uses for them as well, some may use this sequential numbering system to create price tags for bake sales, and garage sales. Indeed, anything you may require a ‘ticket’ for, you can customize our templates and make them work for you.

Thank you for these clear instructions. I have had the same problem as Mommy Vaughan and followed the suggestion. However, on re-opening the Word document, I have the dialogue box Invalid Merge Field. I have to use Task Manager to close down Word. I am using Word 2010. Maybe that is part or all of the problem. Any ideas please? I need to sort this by tomorrow night to print them on Monday!
Nonprofit organizations can use programs to highlight addresses to which charitable donations may be sent. You can also use them to spotlight and provide thanks to participants, volunteers, and other worthy parties. Whatever you want to say will fit in an Event Program! They work equally well as reference materials for those looking for specific information, and as something to peruse during downtime at your event.

The SEQ or Sequential Numbering Function in Word is the best and quickest way to number your tickets. Many raffle ticket templates use them, yet few sites explain how it works. To see if it uses the SEQ function, you need to download the template first. Then, open it in Word, click right in the middle of where a serial number is, and then right-click.
If the second number on your raffle ticket is one higher than the first number, you must have accidentally put the <> tag after the first number (causing the next number, on the same ticket, to increase by one). You only need the <> after the second number on each ticket, so the next ticket gets a new number. (But you don't need it on the final ticket on the **page**, because the next **page** automatically gets a new number)
The Heat Sensitive Security paper has micro text in green ink on one side, usually the back of the ticket. If you add small text to the back, it might not be readable. If you have a lot of text or an image that covers the whole back of the ticket, it will be printed over the micro text and you will not be able to use the security feature to verify the ticket's authenticity.
I have done this twice now, getting flustered. The ticket part the person keeps has the correct sequential number on it, but the side that we keep has the same number on it for the whole page. What part am I missing, at first I did not uncheck the box, but this time I did but have the same number on the stub side that we keep with the person's name, etc
It depends on whether you've designed your Poster at full size, or have created a smaller image you'd like enlarged. In general, images saved at 300 DPI make for the best print jobs. Even if you plan on designing a poster at its finished size, it is ideal to have the images and file saved at 300 DPI to ensure high quality at 100% reproduction although, at minimum the resolution must be 150 DPI at print size. If you submit an 8.5" x 11" or 11" x 17" document to be enlarged, please make sure that the images are saved at 300 DPI or better to ensure a sharp resolution.
Since the ordering process is different for online and custom products please do not complete your online order. Simply create an account online and add the tickets to your cart.

Customer Support will start the custom product ordering process and finalize the order once all order information is received.
Event Programs are printed booklets, brochures, catalogs, or pamphlets you can print in advance and provide for the guests at your events. They're versatile and useful and they help you share all the information your attendees could ever need. If you've got lots of information you want everyone to know, Event Programs are an ideal way to share. Use them to clearly lay out the order of activities, list participants, or add special notes about your gathering or organization. They also make cool keepsakes for attendees. Event Programs are the perfect place to express your thanks to anyone who provided promotional items, donated funds, or did volunteer work for your event.
One size just doesn't fit all. While we offer all of our designs for free, the price for an online ticket template order varies. The cost of your order depends on many factors: the template you choose, whether your templates require color ink or black ink, the number of image uploads, your choice of stapling, the type of paper you select, and, of course, the number of tickets or other products you order. To get a feel for price range, click on the ticket you want to open a page with text boxes and options for choosing paper type, ticket quantity, and paper color. Changing these options will change the price of the ticket in the lower right hand corner accordingly.
Yes, we've done our best to make it easy to reorder, even if you need to make some changes. Just click on "My Account" and go to your order history. Click on the template you would like to reorder, and then click the reorder option button. This will take you to a page where you can edit the information you previously used. When you're done, just add the item to your cart.
It's not impossible. Please call our Customer Support at 888 771 0809 before finalizing your order. We will verify whether Saturday delivery is available in your area and will adjust your shipping method if possible. If your order ships out Friday, Next Day Air may provide Saturday delivery. If it ships out Thursday, Second Day Air can also provide Saturday delivery. UPS charges an additional fee of $17.50 for Saturday delivery. We strongly recommend that somebody is present at the delivery location to sign for the package.
Custom Tickets offer the same great options as all our ticket templates! We can print full color or black ink on white heavy weight card stock (matte or semi-gloss finish) or white medium weight office paper (matte finish). The heavy weight card stock is about the same weight as an expensive business card or greeting card. The white office paper is slightly heavier than the regular copy paper.
You probably know about Word's mail merge feature, and you might even use it to print labels or other documents, where some of the information changes (such as form letters). You can use the same feature with Publisher. Although you might not think of Publisher as an Office app, it comes with several different versions of Office. In this article, I'll show you how to print sequentially numbered tickets using Publisher and Excel. This article provides instructions for Publisher 2007, 2010, and 2013.
