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.
Event Programs are printed booklets, brochures, catalogs, or pamphlets you can print in advance and provide for the guests at your events. They're versatile and useful and they help you share all the information your attendees could ever need. If you've got lots of information you want everyone to know, Event Programs are an ideal way to share. Use them to clearly lay out the order of activities, list participants, or add special notes about your gathering or organization. They also make cool keepsakes for attendees. Event Programs are the perfect place to express your thanks to anyone who provided promotional items, donated funds, or did volunteer work for your event.
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.

Now for the slightly hard bit. If you just try and complete your merge now, you'll get several pages of tickets. Each page will have four tickets on it. But all tickets on any page will have the same number. Each page will have a different number, but all the tickets on that page will have the same number. That's no good. You need each ticket to have a different number.
If you already have a design and want to send us a print-ready file, just make sure your images are set at 300 dpi resolution, with the print size recommended for best print quality. If you don't have an image, or if your image's resolution is too low, our design team can still use graphics from our image library. We'll send you an electronic proof before we print anything. If it's not what you want, you can always request changes before approving it.

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.
Drag the number, which Publisher defaults to “1,” into place on the ticket. To change the sequence, such as to start with “100” instead of “1,” click the “Page Number” button again and choose “Format Page Numbers.” Click the “Start this section with” radio button and type the new number into the field. Click the “OK” button to have Publisher update the ticket number.
Economy Stickers are printed on paper, making them just right for indoor use as inexpensive souvenirs, decorations, or promotional items. They come in 2 shapes, square or rectangle, and are cut with a crack and peel back. They may not be quite as tough and versatile as Vinyl Stickers, but the tradeoff is that they're really affordable. Choose Economy Stickers if price is an issue. They're a great way to spread your message quickly and inexpensively, and they still look great.
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.
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.
Actually, you can purchase online tickets in any quantity over 50. We've replaced our drop down quantity lists with text boxes where you can enter just the number of tickets that you need. Most of our online templates are available in any quantity over 50 items. However, Posters and Flyers can be ordered in quantities as low as 5. Since our per item price drops as your order gets bigger, in many cases, you can order more items for the same price.
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.
i’ve had to do tons of this lately and found that for the amounts of tickets being done (e.g. 7000 x 10 tickets + cover & mailer) that chuckT’s solution almost 2 years ago is similar to what i use. would be interested to know if others doing similar VDP are using a wholly indesign/excel solution, or if specific VDP software such as XMPie are being used.
