You can add pretty much any design to your Event Programs. Just choose a look and we'll run with it! Our expert Graphic Designers can use your custom images to match your event and make your guides unique and relevant to your organization or gathering. Design time starts at $35 per hour for a 4-page document; call customer service for quotes on larger order. In selecting images, choose 300 dpi resolution in a common format: PDF, JPEG, GIF, or TIFF are acceptable file formats. We can also use the artwork from tickets or other printed templates you have ordered from us. Any image you have a legal right to reproduce can be added to your programs.
Our raffle ticket templates have a placeholder for a ticket number, usually “xxx” to remind you it needs to be replaced. Select it, click Insert Merge Field > Ticket. Do the same for the second ticket number placeholder. Most tickets will have two number placeholders because one part of the ticket is for the raffle host (you) and the other is for the purchaser.
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.
The next step is to create the simple Excel workbook that contains the ticket numbers. Open a blank Excel sheet. Using Figure B as a guide, create the ticket numbering sheet and save it, making sure to note the new workbook's name and location. As we discussed earlier, the Excel workbook stores the ticket numbers. In this example, we'll create 11 tickets numbered 100 through 110. You'll need to update the ticket values for each merge.
Economy paper event badges are subject to wear just like any paper product, but the vinyl pouch will protect the badge from damage or wear while in use. Heavy duty card stock badges are heavy enough to punch a lanyard slot in. Synthetic badges are made of durable premium heavy weight 16 mil synthetic stock. The synthetic badges are waterproof and will not tear. Paper or card stock badges will work just fine for short events. If you want your badges to last a long time, you probably want to choose plastic or synthetic.
Ready to place your order? We'll need all your order information, including artwork to the correct specifications. You can email everything to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can upload your files to "My Files" in your account online. We'll also need your shipping and billing information. For your safety, please call Customer Support to provide your credit card information - email is not a secure channel for your personal details! We do not charge your credit card until you approve your proof, but we do need it to get the order placed.
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.
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.
Event Programs can also help you make more money. Increase your sponsor rolls by providing advertising space anywhere in your Event Programs, just like an ad book! Selling advertising space is beneficial to you, your sponsors, and your guests. Plus, you can use previous years' Event Programs to attract other advertisers in future years. Viewing a well-designed Event Program offers potential sponsors tangible evidence of the benefit of supporting you.
I had wanted to create a file that didn't require Excel as the data source, so I created one using SEQ fields. It was terrible and too huge to mention (thanks Doug Robbins), so I recreated it using Word as the data source so that people who only have Word can use it. You can create up to 5,000 tickets without changing the data file. If you only have Word and need to create more than 5,000 tickets, please don't type the ticket numbers. Just drop me an email and I'll create another data file for you with the required numbers.
For your convenience, we offer "My Files" as an online storage space for any graphics or logos you might want added to your custom orders. Configured to accept files up to 30 MB, with a maximum storage capacity of 100MB, it's the perfect way to keep your important graphics handy for current and future print projects. You can even add notes to any files you upload, and, if you need to discuss your files before you order, you can just check "have a customer support agent contact me about this file" and we'll contact you within a couple business days to go over any questions or concerns.
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.
Our Banners are printed on 13mil Scrim Vinyl. You get to choose gloss or matte finishes. Scrim vinyl media is waterproof, durable, versatile, and easy to work with just right whether you plan to use it indoors or outside. This heavy-duty stuff can stand up to harsh weather for a long time while resisting wear and tear. It's so versatile that you can actually take it down, move it, and hang it up again over and over without fear of ripping.
Another fan of Fusion Pro Desktop here. This is exactly what you need. We have sold both PrintShop Mail and Fusion Pro Desktop for this very application (numbering) and other VDP applications. Fusion Pro Desktop easily beats PrintShop Mail from both a price and performance viewpoint. You could also try Printer's Bench http://www.elkriversystems.com/ProductsList.aspx for a good entry level package
Note: If you close and reopen your document or look at a preview of the document, it will appear that the CSV has reverted and your leading zeroes were deleted. However, be assured that is not the case. As long as you were able to see the leading zeros at the time you saved the document, your CSV has the leading zeros. It is safe to upload your CSV and your leading zeroes will be preserved.
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'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.
We sure can! For a small fee, we can print any kind of graphics on your wristbands whether you choose either a graphic from our image library or your own logo or image, save in a common file format at 300 dpi resolution at print size. As you consider design, just remember that the printable area of an Event Wristband measures 0.85 x 7 inches, which means your logo will be fairly small. Small text within your graphic will probably not be readable. Don't despair! There's a fix for that: in many cases, our design team can erase small text from the graphic. We can add the text in a larger font and print it next to the graphic, if you like. Please also keep in mind that inkjet printers are the optimal printing technology for Tyvek® fabric. You may notice that logos and text printing on Tyvek® will have less brightness and clarity (for example, sharp edges) than laser printing on high gloss paper.
You've either done too much, or not enough. Check the line that says, "Required: Start Number." Did you enter a start number? It's required! And it's got to be a numeral. If you used letters or words (such as "no" or "one") in that line, just change that to digits. If that's not the problem, double-check that you did not enter too much text on any line. Too much text will result in a pink box indicating which line is too long, and will also appear in red on the proof.
Preserving the environment is important to 48HourPrint.com. Our tickets are printed on recycled cover stock, which delivers excellent ticket printing results on stock that is brighter and more uniform in color. Recycled cover stock is our standard stock, at no extra cost to you. Tickets are printed in full color on both sides on 14 point cover stock, with your choice of matte coating, gloss coating, high-gloss U.V. coating, or C1S (coating on one side).
You use InDesign or Illustrator and things like variables to increment numbers. Doesn't matter in your case, though. If you really are going to print it with an online service, you will just create a PDF with 300 separate pages/ artboards and could just as well hack in the numbers manualyl or use something liek automatic page numbering to increment them.
Yes, we've tried to make it easy to reorder your tickets, even if you want to change them a bit. Simply click on "My Account" and go to your history. Find the ticket you would like to reorder, click on it, and then click on the reorder option button. You will see the screen where you originally filled in your ticket template, and you can make changes there before placing your order.
I answer readers' questions about Microsoft Office when I can, but there's no guarantee. When contacting me, be as specific as possible. For example, "Please troubleshoot my workbook and fix what's wrong" probably won't get a response, but "Can you tell me why this formula isn't returning the expected results?" might. Please mention the app and version that you're using. I'm not reimbursed by TechRepublic for my time or expertise, nor do I ask for a fee from readers. You can contact me at email@example.com.
