We use the auto page numbering trick here, the trick is to do it as spreads. You just make your pages the same size as the ticket with crops and bleeds. Then set up the shell on the master page and place your auto page number where you want your numbers. Each pages is the next number. You can also have two sets of numbers for perforated ticket. You then can use the page start options to add to the numbers and keep the same number of total numbers. For example you would do a new page start after number 99. 0001 to 0099 so it doesn't add two "0's" to the front of 100 and you get 00100 when you want 0100. Works great for small quantities, we have done up to 1000+ tickets and once you do it once or twice it is a snap to set up. To avoid having to do 1000 pages just send the tickets in groups. Usually between 25 to 100 at a time works good depending on artwork file size. Just save each time before sending to printer and name the file with what the tickets are. Like "MyTickets-0001-0100.Indd". Makes it easier to go back if you have a problem. You can even do two rolls of tickets if your using 12 x 18 sheets by flipping the sheet and doing one row along the top and one along the bottom on reverse side. That is if your ticket is single Sided. Two sided tickets are a bit trickier. :-)
It's all about the features. The first price quote you saw was based on the least expensive options: colored paper with no frills. If you choose white paper, which is heavier than colored paper, it will cost more. Select colored paper and the price will return to the original quote. Adding stapling or your own image to the back of the template will also change the price of the order.
Of course! After you've decided upon your design, placed your order, and provided us with any necessary files, we'll generate a digital proof for you. It should appear in your inbox 1 business day after you place your order. We never print anything until you're satisfied with the proof, so you'll need to approve your electronically sent proof before we begin processing.
To save you money, we keep our online ticket templates standardized and streamlined. This means that the back of your online templates is actually set up for image upload, not text editing. But fear not! There's a solution to every problem, and if you need to add text to the back of the template, you can just save that text as an image file. It's not hard: set up your text information in a program such as Photoshop or Microsoft Paint, save it as a image file, and then upload the image to the back of the template. As long as you start designing the image at 300 dpi resolution for print size 3.5" x 1.75" you'll ensure the resolution is high enough and won't appear pixelated when printed. If you're not sure about the quality, you can call our Customer Support specialists at 888 771 0809 to request a free physical sample sheet. We'll ship it overnight at no cost to you and you can check the image quality out for yourself.
Your raffle might be subject to gaming commission or tax laws. Check with your municipality, state or province, and federal governments to make sure your raffle is legal. These government departments aren’t just enforcers. They are often great resources on how to run a successful fund raising raffle. Raffles are fun! Getting in trouble with the law or tax man is not.
Please keep in mind that this will delay your order. If you call after Fed Ex pick up has left we will not be able to ship the sample sheet the same day. Once you receive your physical proof, please call Customer Support to either confirm or cancel your order. There is no cost to cancel; we will refund your order and you can make the necessary changes to your Design Your Own ticket before resubmitting the order.
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. Please call our Customer Support at 888 771 0809 after entering your shipping and billing information online. Customer Support will start the custom product ordering process and finalize the order once all order information is received.
All in a day's work! Yes, we can print tickets with reserved seating (e.g. Section A, Row 1, Seat 1). We just need to know what the seating options at your venue look like. You can set up the venue yourself, with our user-friendly venue editor. Just download the app (under point 3), enter your details, and email the file to us. There's no charge for this service! You can even incorporate different price levels (e.g. Main Floor = $15, Balcony = $20) or different areas (e.g. VIP, Premium) in the venue file.
There is very simple solution that we use and that is to lay out the sheet say 6 up on a A4 sheet as a master page and in document setup set the number of pages to 1,000 if that is the amount you require. Put a page number on each ticket on the page and although they will all have the same number on each page, we put the the first two letters of the customers business name before each number followed by the letters of the alphabet so it then reads for example BT1A, BT2A, BT3A, BT1B, BT2B, BT2C and so on as each page is printed.
If your sales team is on the go, they might appreciate having items stapled into convenient booklets, which can make them easier to distribute. If you choose stapling, we will staple your tickets together in booklets of up to 10 items. Stapling costs a bit extra: to see how much please select the stapling option and choose the number of items per booklet. The price in the lower right hand corner will adjust accordingly.
We've got tons of Event Kits that feature seven types of matching event collateral: Event Tickets, Raffle Tickets, Drink Tickets, Posters, Flyers, Invitations, and VIP Passes, all printed with the same design for a smart, put-together look. To search all of our Event Kits, just click here. Or, if you've already found a template you like on our site, you can enter the design name, along with the type of template you'd like it to match, in our search box, which you'll find in the upper right hand corner of every page.
By using your favorite spellchecker before you add that text to the template, you can ensure that your product has that professional look. Since we don't offer the option of spell check on templates at this time, you can try typing the text into MS Word or another word processing program, spell check it there, and then just copy the text into the template lines.
Thanks very much for your prompt reply, which reassured me that I was on the right path. From having read various Help topics, I suspected that I'd have to use an Excel data source for the numbers. Fortunately, my knowledge of Excel was good enough to know about the drag and drop facility to create automatic sequential numbering, so the data source creation was easy. In the end, it was the mail merge (no surprises?) which proved a tad tricky, but I got there in the end. I've used MM many times and quite happily in Word documents, but for Publisher label format, it was of course a bit different. The important bit that I had to discover for myself was the significance of, after getting to the Print stage, going into Print options, to Publication & Paper Settings, and selecting Multiple Pages per Sheet (& in my case, also "Single-sided" cos my default of duplex printing had come up). But TA-DA! All is fine now. Thanks very much again.
If you’re producing any kind of numbered items in-house that are multiple-up on a sheet where you need to control all the variables to meet your production needs, the autonumbering feature through numbered lists is the way to go! Just step and repeat away & InDesign will do all the work. No need to fool with a seperate “numbers” file or deal with a data merged document. I think it’s by far the best option for basic numbering.
