Study this screenshot set, there's a lot of info here. The longest part of this is setting up the number file the first time. Using sum= formula of +1 speeds this up when you need to convert a 500 piece job to a 5000 piece job in the future. (everything below row two in the excel file is just copied/pasted formulas; rows B-n can be formulas or new start numbers).


I am stumped on how to double number the tickets I have designed, meaning have 001 appear on both the ticket and 001 appear on the stub.  I researched numbering, and found out how to insert the page number twice by putting it on the master, and then just inserting the number of pages I need.  The issue I am having is with printing.  Is there a way to print a page 4 or 8-up? I am not getting the results I want when I goto File->Print->Printer...  Am I missing something in InDesign?
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)
If you can design your image at 300 dpi resolution at print size, we can make it work. It's especially important to start with 300 dpi if you have text in you image. For non-bleed tickets (those with a white border), keep the image 0.17" in from the cut size on all four sides. For bleed tickets (those where the color or image extends to the edge of the ticket), extend the background color or image 0.1 inch beyond cut size on all sides. Keep all text information 0.1 inch within cut size to avoid it being cut off.
Neighborhood businesses: The shops and stores in your own community are great places to start selling your raffle tickets. These are locales you frequent, where you know the owners and are able talk to them while you’re there. The more familiar you are to them, the more likely they’ll support your fundraising efforts and will be willing provide a selling spot for you.

This depends. The standard font styles, sizes, colors, and sizes available for each template are preset: that's just another way that online ticket templates save you money. They can't be changed online because the ordering process is automated, which keeps our prices low. But, you can always change an online template into a custom order. For a little extra money, we'll create the perfect ticket for your needs. Need a price estimate? Please call Customer Support at 888 771 0809.

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.
Create three Numbering Lists, and make sure you check to keep numbering accross multiple stories. Create three text frames, insert just blank space in each and apply numbering format but with different Numbering List selected. Then group text frames with your ticket and you are done. Now simply duplicate group across page and that's it. Numbering will be automatically increased.
Good morning! Directions are clear for sure but when i go to merge the first ticket is one but the second number on the raffle ticket is two. i have four raffle tickets per page the first three are messed up but the forth is correct all the way down to 500. Any ideas? i have tried with a header and without a header. i even made the first number with a formula. it does work with out putting next record but like you said it is four tickets with the same number and that would use a ton of ink. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.
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.
Our Design Your Own barcodes use code 93; you will need a device that reads to that standard to scan them. You'll also want to make sure that you don't stretch or distort the barcode while you design the rest of your ticket. If you resize it, make sure it stays proportional, or it won't scan. Make sure the area behind the barcode is white, with nothing else printed there. If there is color or text behind the barcode, it won't scan either.
Our digital printers can print in black ink on a colored Wristband, or print in full color on white Wristbands. If you need white text, we can offer you a workaround by printing a color background on a white Wristband. Keep in mind that we can't print all the way to the edges. Event Wristbands measure 1 by 10 inches, but the printable area measure 0.85 by 7 inches. You'll see white margins on the top, bottom, left, and right of the wristband.
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.
