We print in RGB, so it's best to design the file in RGB color mode. However, there are always slight color differences between the print file, the screen display, and the actual printed product. If you want to make sure the colors will come out right, please call our Customer Service at 888 771 0809 to request a free printed proof. We will put your order on hold and send you one un-perforated and un-cut sample sheet via Fed Ex Overnight at no cost to you.
We'd like to think they're both great! The smooth finish is a matte finish while the semi-gloss finish has more shine, so colors tend to stand out more with the semi-gloss finish. Other than that, both papers are a heavy weight quality ticket stock that make your tickets look professional, about the same weight as an expensive business card or greeting card.
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?
It depends what the design is for the tickets. But if you set up primary text frames, linked for the area for the numbers, you can create a numbered list with the numbering format you want. Then, just pour in a whole load of paragraph returns that have that numbered list applied. And make sure each numbered paragraph is set to start in the next column.
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

Our Event Badges are small cards printed on paper, card stock, plastic, or a synthetic material, which you can use to identify your guests. Really, they're just like the I.D. cards you might already wear at work or school, but they're so affordable that you can print up a batch for every occasion. They help you keep track of your guests (especially if it's a long event, and you expect people to be coming and going throughout the day). They also help you remember everyone's name identify and allow you to identify participants by name, bar code, or even seating designation.
All of our print products carry the same guarantee: if your order isn't perfect, we'll fix it. We're completely confident that we can provide you with the highest quality Stickers available, and we're honor bound to guarantee that you're satisfied with our work. If, for any reason, we have not met your expectations, please let us know and we will happily reprint your order.
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.

Third, for extra security, we also offer high-security ticket stock which is heat-activated. Security paper features the message, "Security Paper, Do Not Duplicate," printed at a 45 degree angle in heat sensitive ink. Applying a little heat by rubbing, blowing, or holding the ticket next to a light bulb changes the ink from light green to light yellow. Your ticket takers can see immediately whether the ticket is valid or not. Once the paper cools down again, it returns to its original color.
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).

You don’t have to be a born salesperson to move all your tickets, but the better your sales tactics, the more successful you’ll probably be. Peter Kajanzy teaches how to crush a sale with pro techniques. One bit of advice he offers: When people ask for the price, instead of doing a complex breakdown of one for $2, three for $5, and so on, go straight to “You can buy five tickets for $8.”


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.

If you want to estimate shipping costs for an order of more than one template, select one after the other, change the quantities, type in a start number, and add them to your cart by clicking on "continue". Once all your items are in the cart, type your zip code into the "estimate shipping costs" box in the bottom right hand corner to open the pop-up window with available shipping options and costs.
We'll create our Event Programs as single fold documents (a single fold refers to one fold, directly in the center of the printed sheet, meaning a single sheet translates into a 4-page Event Program) so 4-page programs will not be bound. Single fold programs are perfect for small events such as music or dance recitals, school plays or concerts, community variety shows, or other short, local events.

First, decide what you want your Event Badges to look like. Already have an idea? You can use your own images, photos, designs, or logos to create your badges. Economy Event Badges and VIP Badges can be designed and sent to us in most standard file formats: TIFF, JPEG, PDF, GIF. Please extend the full color background .125" on all sides, beyond the badge size of 3.375" x 2.125". If you have a legal right to reproduce any piece of art, we can add it to your Event Badges.

If you're looking to dress up your space, such as decorating a bulletin board or a classroom, choose from a variety of colorful accent tickets to use as backgrounds or eye-catching elements to draw attention to important topics. Accent tickets come pre-cut and ready to use. Choose different colors and sizes for added interest. Write or draw on the tickets to use them as nametags or labels or to introduce key classroom concepts in an interesting, colorful way.

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.
Thank you for these instructions!! I'm using them to auto number my son's baseball team raffle tickets which we hand numbered last year (UGH!). I followed the instructions exactly but for some reason the numbering is starting at 2 every time. I did deselect the checkbox about the column headers which seems the obvious culprit. Any ideas? I'm using Word on a PC. Thanks!!
