Another fan of Fusion Pro Desktop here. This is exactly what you need. We have sold both PrintShop Mail and Fusion Pro Desktop for this very application (numbering) and other VDP applications. Fusion Pro Desktop easily beats PrintShop Mail from both a price and performance viewpoint. You could also try Printer's Bench http://www.elkriversystems.com/ProductsList.aspx for a good entry level package
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.
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 am printing many pages of tickets. Each page has 5 tickets and I would like to sequentially put a number on each ticket. I have tried to use the auto page numbering feature but that is putting the same number on each of the 5 tickets and then increments for the next page -- not what I need. Also, can the numbering not suppress the leading zeroes? Thanks....
To save you money, we keep our online ticket templates standardized and streamlined. This means that the back of your online templates is actually set up for image upload, not text editing. But fear not! There's a solution to every problem, and if you need to add text to the back of the template, you can just save that text as an image file. It's not hard: set up your text information in a program such as Photoshop or Microsoft Paint, save it as a image file, and then upload the image to the back of the template. As long as you start designing the image at 300 dpi resolution for print size 3.5" x 1.75" you'll ensure the resolution is high enough and won't appear pixelated when printed. If you're not sure about the quality, you can call our Customer Support specialists at 888 771 0809 to request a free physical sample sheet. We'll ship it overnight at no cost to you and you can check the image quality out for yourself.
Raffle ticket printing is a tried-and-true method of raising money. People love the chance to win and feel good about being able to contribute through raffles. To get the most out of your raffle, make sure you print tickets in advance of your event and start selling your raffle tickets early. If you’re planning an event, you can sell attendance tickets at the same time that you offer raffle tickets.
You can! Our digital proofs offer a good facsimile of your physical ticket, but if you're worried about the quality of our online templates or an image you uploaded to your template, you can call our Customer Support at 888 771 0809 and request a physical sample for free. We'll put your order on hold and send you one unperforated sample sheet, via UPS Next Day Air, at no cost.
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.

You can use the Serial Number Tool located above the template. The tickets will be numbered sequentially from the start number you enter. For example if you enter start number "001" and order 250 tickets they will be numbered from 001 up to 250. You can choose any start number you like. Choosing an unlikely start number helps protect you from ticket fraud.
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.

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.
Posters and Banners are meant to be hung, and we use the power of grommets to get the job done! Our vinyl Banners are tape hemmed for a finished look that also provides durability. If your print product is on the smaller side of the spectrum, we'll add a grommet to every corner. For large Banners, you'll have a grommet every two feet. Our indoor Posters, which are printed on Satin Polypropylene Film, also come with grommet mounts.
Our Banners are printed on 13mil Scrim Vinyl. You get to choose gloss or matte finishes. Scrim vinyl media is waterproof, durable, versatile, and easy to work with just right whether you plan to use it indoors or outside. This heavy-duty stuff can stand up to harsh weather for a long time while resisting wear and tear. It's so versatile that you can actually take it down, move it, and hang it up again over and over without fear of ripping.
The Heat Sensitive Security paper has micro text in green ink on one side, usually the back of the ticket. If you add small text to the back, it might not be readable. If you have a lot of text or an image that covers the whole back of the ticket, it will be printed over the micro text and you will not be able to use the security feature to verify the ticket's authenticity.
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!!

Note: If you close and reopen your document or look at a preview of the document, it will appear that the CSV has reverted and your leading zeroes were deleted. However, be assured that is not the case. As long as you were able to see the leading zeros at the time you saved the document, your CSV has the leading zeros. It is safe to upload your CSV and your leading zeroes will be preserved.
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.
