We sequentially number all our Event Tickets, Raffle Tickets, Drink Tickets, and VIP Passes to keep your event secure! All you have to do is enter the first number in the line that says "Start Number". If you enter "001" and order 250 tickets the numbering will go from 001 up to 250. If you enter "000" and order 250 tickets the numbering will go from 000 up to 249. For increased security, some of our customers choose larger, random numbers for their start number. This makes it much harder for people to create convincing forgeries.
Ready to place your order? We'll need all your order information, including artwork to the correct specifications. You can email everything to support@ticketprinting.com, 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 best to use something other than general copy paper when printing raffle tickets. Heavier weight paper, or even card stock, could be a better choice. Not only does it look more professional, but the tickets will tear off more easily along the perforation. Choose paper colors on the lighter end of the spectrum so that the template design shows up clearly when printed.
Thank you for these clear instructions. I have had the same problem as Mommy Vaughan and followed the suggestion. However, on re-opening the Word document, I have the dialogue box Invalid Merge Field. I have to use Task Manager to close down Word. I am using Word 2010. Maybe that is part or all of the problem. Any ideas please? I need to sort this by tomorrow night to print them on Monday!

Hi - are you creating your own tickets using the instructions on this page? If so, you can of course change the font and everything else in your Word document. If you are using the Raffle Ticket Creator app (app.raffleticketcreator.com) then you can't change the font size ... you'll just need to tinker with the exact words that you are including in order to get them to fit on the page. Hope that helps!
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.

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.
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.
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.
The exciting thing about our templates is that you are free to customize them, they are easy to download, and you can use them over and over again. These templates will save you time and money and so easy to use, that you can grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit down, relax and create your raffle tickets. Remember you might find other uses for them as well, some may use this sequential numbering system to create price tags for bake sales, and garage sales. Indeed, anything you may require a ‘ticket’ for, you can customize our templates and make them work for you.

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.


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.
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.
Our digital printers can print in black ink on a colored Wristband, or print in full color on white Wristbands. If you need white text, we can offer you a workaround by printing a color background on a white Wristband. Keep in mind that we can't print all the way to the edges. Event Wristbands measure 1 by 10 inches, but the printable area measure 0.85 by 7 inches. You'll see white margins on the top, bottom, left, and right of the wristband.
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).
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 offer the same excellent 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of our print products. If it's not right, just give us an opportunity to make it right. We're confident that we can provide you with the state-of-the-art Large Format Posters of your dreams. If we fail to meet your expectations for any reason, just let us know and we'll be happy to reprint your 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.

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. ticket numbering
