There’s an old Steve Martin joke about how to make a million dollars which starts, “First, get a million dollars…” That’s the key to this trick, too: First, get a bunch of numbers. Here’s a file with 1,197 numbers in it. Now import or paste those numbers into a thread so that the numbers appear in the right place. If you need two matching numbers, just import it twice.
Tyvek® is not paper. It's a tough, waterproof, and durable fabric. Inkjet printers are the optimal printing technology for Tyvek® fabric. Therefore, logos and text printing on Tyvek® will have less brightness and clarity (for example, sharp edges) than laser printing on high gloss paper. However, printing on a Tyvek® wristband is durable and will not smear or rub.
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.
We proudly ship via UPS. You can choose Ground, 3 Day Select, Second Day Air, Next Day Air, or Next Day Air Saver. UPS Ground Shipping is the least expensive option, but you'll have to wait a little longer for your order: anywhere from 3-6 business days. Need to estimate shipping time to your location? Click here for the UPS Ground map showing approximate shipping times between our printing facility and your town.
Custom Tickets offer the same great options as all our ticket templates! We can print full color or black ink on white heavy weight card stock (matte or semi-gloss finish) or white medium weight office paper (matte finish). The heavy weight card stock is about the same weight as an expensive business card or greeting card. The white office paper is slightly heavier than the regular copy paper.

We've got tons of Event Kits that feature seven types of matching event collateral: Event Tickets, Raffle Tickets, Drink Tickets, Posters, Flyers, Invitations, and VIP Passes, all printed with the same design for a smart, put-together look. To search all of our Event Kits, just click here. Or, if you've already found a template you like on our site, you can enter the design name, along with the type of template you'd like it to match, in our search box, which you'll find in the upper right hand corner of every page.
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)

Single coupon pre-printed ticket rolls are ideal for many types of events. Use them as admission tickets or for refreshment coupons or for prize drawings. With a variety of colors available, you can have different rolls for various activities at your event. Don't forget to pick up some colorful signs to help advertise the different activities at your event!


Before selling, try to raise as much awareness about your raffle as you can. Flyers are easy to distribute and display – download yours from our free raffle flyer template page. Choose places where you expect a lot of foot traffic. Not only can you hand them out to passersby, but with the right permissions, you can display flyers in store windows and other prominent locations.
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!
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).

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. event ticket numbering
