I answer readers' questions about Microsoft Office when I can, but there's no guarantee. When contacting me, be as specific as possible. For example, "Please troubleshoot my workbook and fix what's wrong" probably won't get a response, but "Can you tell me why this formula isn't returning the expected results?" might. Please mention the app and version that you're using. I'm not reimbursed by TechRepublic for my time or expertise, nor do I ask for a fee from readers. You can contact me at susansalesharkins@gmail.com.
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.
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.
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!
You can add pretty much any design to your Event Programs. Just choose a look and we'll run with it! Our expert Graphic Designers can use your custom images to match your event and make your guides unique and relevant to your organization or gathering. Design time starts at $35 per hour for a 4-page document; call customer service for quotes on larger order. In selecting images, choose 300 dpi resolution in a common format: PDF, JPEG, GIF, or TIFF are acceptable file formats. We can also use the artwork from tickets or other printed templates you have ordered from us. Any image you have a legal right to reproduce can be added to your programs.
With unique tickets come unique prices! The cost of your Design Your Own ticket will depend on what you order, based on variables like quantity, paper type, stapling, and size. You can calculate the cost before you start designing by entering this information at the bottom of the DYO web page. The price will appear in the bottom right hand corner, just above the box where you can calculate shipping on the order!
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.
You've probably seen these narrow paper or plastic bracelets at clubs, festivals, and big, crowded events. Our Event Wristbands are synthetic fabric bracelets most commonly used to keep your event secure. They are made from lightweight and durable Tyvek® material that will last as long as your event. Event Wristbands help your event staff makes quick visual identification of your patrons. It's easy to customize wristbands any way you want.
I am creating a file in inDesign for a client that is asking for numbered tickets. They'd like to be able to print a specific number for each ticket. I've read some of the older answers for similar questions that refer to Data Merge, but I'd prefer not to take that route if avoidable. What I'd ultimately like to do is create a space for the numbers to go, select the number of pages within the Print menu, and have the spaces populate with the corresponding numbers while printing.
Not if you're printing digitally, and we are! We'll print as many colors as you like and it won't cost any more than printing one color. Black ink is less expensive than colored ink, so black and white tickets are less expensive than colored tickets, but once you've chosen color tickets, go ahead and print rainbows if you like! It won't cost any extra.

This depends. The standard font styles, sizes, colors, and sizes available for each template are preset: that's just another way that online ticket templates save you money. They can't be changed online because the ordering process is automated, which keeps our prices low. But, you can always change an online template into a custom order. For a little extra money, we'll create the perfect ticket for your needs. Need a price estimate? Please call Customer Support at 888 771 0809.
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.
Drag the number, which Publisher defaults to “1,” into place on the ticket. To change the sequence, such as to start with “100” instead of “1,” click the “Page Number” button again and choose “Format Page Numbers.” Click the “Start this section with” radio button and type the new number into the field. Click the “OK” button to have Publisher update the ticket number.
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
Create three Numbering Lists, and make sure you check to keep numbering accross multiple stories. Create three text frames, insert just blank space in each and apply numbering format but with different Numbering List selected. Then group text frames with your ticket and you are done. Now simply duplicate group across page and that's it. Numbering will be automatically increased.
That depends on the template you've chosen. Each template features a unique design and layout, so the number of characters per line is different for every online template. Don't worry; it's easy to tell whether or not your text fits on the template. Just enter all your information into the ticket template and then click "View Proof" at the bottom of the page. If your text doesn't fit, any lines with too many characters will appear in red on your proof. From there, you can go back to the template and make it work: either shorten the line or try to break it up in two lines, if the template layout allows for that. Remember that capital letters need more space than lower case letters, and vertical layouts usually allow for less text than horizontal layouts.
Think small. For the most part, Custom Wristbands can easily be printed with any design: just keep in mind that the printable area is roughly .85" by 7". Our wide, 1" bands allow for a much larger area to customize than other wristbands. Since Tyvek® is not paper, but rather a strong, waterproof, and durable fabric, inkjet printers are the optimal printing technology and your logos and text may seem less bright, and the edges less sharp, than you would expect with a laser printing on high gloss paper. However, the printing is durable and will not smear or rub on the Tyvek® wristband, and your Custom Wristbands can be tailored to match your event's custom promotional material.

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.
