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.
We use the auto page numbering trick here, the trick is to do it as spreads. You just make your pages the same size as the ticket with crops and bleeds. Then set up the shell on the master page and place your auto page number where you want your numbers. Each pages is the next number. You can also have two sets of numbers for perforated ticket. You then can use the page start options to add to the numbers and keep the same number of total numbers. For example you would do a new page start after number 99. 0001 to 0099 so it doesn't add two "0's" to the front of 100 and you get 00100 when you want 0100. Works great for small quantities, we have done up to 1000+ tickets and once you do it once or twice it is a snap to set up. To avoid having to do 1000 pages just send the tickets in groups. Usually between 25 to 100 at a time works good depending on artwork file size. Just save each time before sending to printer and name the file with what the tickets are. Like "MyTickets-0001-0100.Indd". Makes it easier to go back if you have a problem. You can even do two rolls of tickets if your using 12 x 18 sheets by flipping the sheet and doing one row along the top and one along the bottom on reverse side. That is if your ticket is single Sided. Two sided tickets are a bit trickier. :-)
If you send us a print-ready file, please omit the seating information as well as the perforated stub line. Just send us an additional mock up indicating the location of the seating information and stub line. We need to use additional tools to print individual seating information for each ticket, and to perforate the ticket stub, rather than simply print a dotted line.
I am getting my tickets to number on one side of it. However, I am needing my tickets to have the number on each side, but one side will not number. I have tried several times and it will not number on both sides. I am using an avery template that is printing 10 tickets per page, stub and tearable ticket. But the stub will not number while the tearable ticket will.
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.
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).
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. raffle ticket numbering
