Welcome to the great balancing act: space considerations! Your Event Program should provide enough information without overwhelming the reader. Your font size needs to be large enough that the average person can read the print without squinting, but you'll want to keep it small enough to allow room for all of your details. Contact our Customer Support Specialists at 888.771.0809 for advice once you have compiled your information and they can advise you regarding the best length for your programs.
Vinyl Wristbands are made in a broad range of materials, one of which is Tyvek®. Our event wristbands are commonly called 'tyvek wristbands', as they are made of Tyvek® which is a durable, waterproof fabric. Vinyl wristbands are made from polypropylene. If you need even more durability and strength, or wristbands to last multiple days, try our Vinyl Wristbands.
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.
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.
That depends on the template you've chosen. Each template features a unique design and layout, so the number of characters per line is different for every online template. Don't worry; it's easy to tell whether or not your text fits on the template. Just enter all your information into the ticket template and then click "View Proof" at the bottom of the page. If your text doesn't fit, any lines with too many characters will appear in red on your proof. From there, you can go back to the template and make it work: either shorten the line or try to break it up in two lines, if the template layout allows for that. Remember that capital letters need more space than lower case letters, and vertical layouts usually allow for less text than horizontal layouts.
I know that PrintShopMail will do it, but I was wandering if there was a less expensive solution out there so that I could get numbered tickets (usually 4-up) right off the Xerox. I just want to avoid having to go the the Windmill after trimming and doing it the old fashion way. There is a tiny little copy shop here in town that is doing it, and am willing to bet that they are not using PrintShopMail, but I'm also not going to ask them to share their methods with a competitor. There has to be cheaper solution. I know that I can do it with auto page numbering in Indesign, but that means I can only print raffle tickets 1-up which wont work.
You can leave a line blank on the online template, and that space will remain blank on your finished print product. However, since our templates are standardized and the process is automated, there is no way to add a line of text or to reposition the text without paying for a Custom Ticket order. Just visit our Custom Ticket order page for more information.
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.
If you need to know where your package is right now, just log into your account at TicketPrinting.com. Using the "Track My Packages" box on the right side of the screen, you can find links to any orders that are in transit. Or, you can use the UPS tracking application. Every time we ship you a package, we send a confirmation email containing a UPS tracking number. Click here and enter this tracking number and UPS will tell you what you want to know!
Indeed, they are! Many customers want to hang their Posters or Banners outside and keep them there for a while, so they're all printed with solvent based, UV stable ink, which is super-durable and can resist UV degradation for 3 to 5 years. When it's printed on vinyl, this UV ink is extra durable and able withstand any moisture or precipitation your climate might throw at it.
I’m not sure which version of InDesign first introduced printing Thumbnails like this, but even if yours doesn’t support that, your printer driver may have a similar feature of its own. Check the printer’s own dialog box by clicking “Setup…” near the bottom left corner of the Print dialog and dismissing the warning, then clicking “Preferences…” in Windows’s Print dialog that comes up (I’m not sure how to access this on Mac OS X, but I’m pretty sure there’s an easy way). For instance, on many HP printers, the feature you want is called “Pages per sheet” and has a drop-down offering 1, 2, 4, 9, or 16 pages per sheet.
