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.

Hello Bruce, I seem to be having a different problem altogether. I created my ticket in word using logos and text boxes as needed, ticket looks great. I followed your very clear instructions but when I did the Finish & Merge I got this message, "You cannot include DATA, NEXT, NEXTIF, or SKIPIF fields in comments, headers, footers, footnotes or endnotes." I then click on OK and get this, "A field calculation error occurred in record 1. Bruce any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!!
All in a day's work! Yes, we can print tickets with reserved seating (e.g. Section A, Row 1, Seat 1). We just need to know what the seating options at your venue look like. You can set up the venue yourself, with our user-friendly venue editor. Just download the app (under point 3), enter your details, and email the file to us. There's no charge for this service! You can even incorporate different price levels (e.g. Main Floor = $15, Balcony = $20) or different areas (e.g. VIP, Premium) in the venue file.
Whether they're getting ready to win or ready to enter your big event, your guests will love the thrill of entering with our raffle tickets. Each ticket comes with a twin ticket, which means you get to keep one while they keep the other – there's no memorizing of entry numbers with these ticket! Also the number of the ticket remains with your patrons as long as the ticket does! Plus, with the great selection of colors we offer, the ticket isn't going to get lost any time soon.
There's a lot of wiggle room here. The printable area of a wristband measures 0.85 by 7 inches, but there's no character limit. Instead, the number of characters you'll be able to fit on your Wristband will depends on the font style, font size, and layout. The less text you use, the better your results will be, as larger printing just stand out more, and is easier to read. If you really want a lot of text, we'll help you adjust font style and size to make it work.
The sizes of our customers' monitors vary, but the sizes of our tickets have been standardized! The description on the template page will tell you the size of your completed, cut ticket. The image that you see while you are filling out the text fields for your tickets might not even be to scale. Your proof will be scaled to your computer screen, but the size may change if it's saved and opened with another program. In other words, what you see on the screen is merely an image. The actual dimensions of your tickets are those written in the description, and they don't change.
You’ll need to decide on a selling price. You don’t want to price them too high so that many people would find it too expensive. The lower the price of each ticket, the more tickets you’ll sell. If you price your tickets at $1 each, expect each buyer to purchase from one to five tickets. If your tickets are $5-10 each, each buyer will likely purchase no more that two.
Please keep in mind that this will delay your order, as we never begin printing until you approve your proof. If you call to request your physical proof after UPS Next Day Air pick up has left, we will not be able to ship the sample sheet the same day. Once you receive your physical proof, please call Customer Support to either confirm your order or cancel. There is no cost to cancel, we will refund your order and you can make the necessary changes to your Design Your Own ticket before resubmitting the order.
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 need a shipping estimate on multiple items, select one after the other, change the quantities, type in a start number, and add them to your cart by clicking "continue". Once your items are in the cart, you can enter your zip code into the "estimate shipping costs" box in the bottom right hand corner of the page to generate a pop-up window listing available shipping options and costs.
Use space on the back of tickets for promoting yourself or someone else’s business. Our 3.5” x 8.5” page ticket size offers a generous amount of room for ads. Sell the space on your tickets to local advertisers or offer it as a value-added opportunity to your event sponsors. You can also print coupons on the back of tickets, allowing you the ability to track promotions.
Select the Text Tool (T) and start dragging a text box that will wrap around the whole ticket including the crop marks. This is very important since the Data Merge will automatically calculate the duplication. Then open up the Text Frame Option (Command + B) and set the Inset spacing to 1p4 for the top and 1p8 for the left. Of course, you can place the text for the numbers anywhere you like. I set the numbers to a small text.
