Thank you for these instructions!! I'm using them to auto number my son's baseball team raffle tickets which we hand numbered last year (UGH!). I followed the instructions exactly but for some reason the numbering is starting at 2 every time. I did deselect the checkbox about the column headers which seems the obvious culprit. Any ideas? I'm using Word on a PC. Thanks!!
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.
Having personalized raffle tickets printed can get expensive, especially if you operate a fund-raising operation and must do this often. An alternative to using costly printing services is to use the raffle ticket template. With the raffle ticket template, you save money. The raffle ticket template also gives you complete creative control. Simply by opening a template in Microsoft Word means that can design it yourself by adding both text and images, all from the comfort of your own home.
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.
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.
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.
You've either done too much, or not enough. Check the line that says, "Required: Start Number." Did you enter a start number? It's required! And it's got to be a numeral. If you used letters or words (such as "no" or "one") in that line, just change that to digits. If that's not the problem, double-check that you did not enter too much text on any line. Too much text will result in a pink box indicating which line is too long, and will also appear in red on the proof.

Thanks very much for your prompt reply, which reassured me that I was on the right path. From having read various Help topics, I suspected that I'd have to use an Excel data source for the numbers. Fortunately, my knowledge of Excel was good enough to know about the drag and drop facility to create automatic sequential numbering, so the data source creation was easy. In the end, it was the mail merge (no surprises?) which proved a tad tricky, but I got there in the end. I've used MM many times and quite happily in Word documents, but for Publisher label format, it was of course a bit different. The important bit that I had to discover for myself was the significance of, after getting to the Print stage, going into Print options, to Publication & Paper Settings, and selecting Multiple Pages per Sheet (& in my case, also "Single-sided" cos my default of duplex printing had come up). But TA-DA!  All is fine now. Thanks very much again.
I am stumped on how to double number the tickets I have designed, meaning have 001 appear on both the ticket and 001 appear on the stub.  I researched numbering, and found out how to insert the page number twice by putting it on the master, and then just inserting the number of pages I need.  The issue I am having is with printing.  Is there a way to print a page 4 or 8-up? I am not getting the results I want when I goto File->Print->Printer...  Am I missing something in InDesign?
Thank you for your reply.  It reassured me that I was on the right path. From having read other Help texts, I guessed that I would have to use good ole mail-merge and set up a numbers list in Excel. Luckily my knowledge of Excel was good enough to know about the drag&drop for sequential immediate numbering. When it came to the crunch, it was this particular type of mail merge which gave me a bit of initial difficulty. Despite my having used it happily and often in Word, for labels in Publisher, it was - not surprisingly - different in certain respects; principally the crucial point of the Print stage, which necessitated finding the option Publications & Paper Settings, and selecting 2 specific parameters, namely (1) Multiple pages per sheet,  (2) Single-sided printing (my default double printing had appeared). Once I'd sussed this, it was plain sailing.  Thanks again.
One size just doesn't fit all. While we offer all of our designs for free, the price for an online ticket template order varies. The cost of your order depends on many factors: the template you choose, whether your templates require color ink or black ink, the number of image uploads, your choice of stapling, the type of paper you select, and, of course, the number of tickets or other products you order. To get a feel for price range, click on the ticket you want to open a page with text boxes and options for choosing paper type, ticket quantity, and paper color. Changing these options will change the price of the ticket in the lower right hand corner accordingly.
I am using your instructions to create a page of tickets - the design has been created as a picture so I added a text box to "hold" the mail merge instructions but I keep getting the error message "You cannot include DATA, NEXT, NEXTIF, or SKIPIF fields in comments, headers, footers, footnotes or endnotes." I have not included any of these but I'm wondering if it's because I've attempted to insert it in a text box. Is there an easy way to do this? TIA

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.

We'd like to think they're both great! The smooth finish is a matte finish while the semi-gloss finish has more shine, so colors tend to stand out more with the semi-gloss finish. Other than that, both papers are a heavy weight quality ticket stock that make your tickets look professional, about the same weight as an expensive business card or greeting card.


Please keep in mind that this will delay your order, as we never begin printing until you approve your proof. If you call to request your physical proof after UPS Next Day Air pick up has left, we will not be able to ship the sample sheet the same day. Once you receive your physical proof, please call Customer Support to either confirm your order or cancel. There is no cost to cancel, we will refund your order and you can make the necessary changes to your Design Your Own ticket before resubmitting the order.
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.
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.

Vinyl Wristbands are made in a broad range of materials, one of which is Tyvek®. Our event wristbands are commonly called 'tyvek wristbands', as they are made of Tyvek® which is a durable, waterproof fabric. Vinyl wristbands are made from polypropylene. If you need even more durability and strength, or wristbands to last multiple days, try our Vinyl Wristbands.


Your raffle might be subject to gaming commission or tax laws. Check with your municipality, state or province, and federal governments to make sure your raffle is legal. These government departments aren’t just enforcers. They are often great resources on how to run a successful fund raising raffle. Raffles are fun! Getting in trouble with the law or tax man is not.

Multiple ticket types? No problem! We can generate a separate proof for every different ticket type you'd like. We can even use different color schemes for different dates or levels of access, providing you with easy visual recognition. Because these are distinct tickets, we print and process each set separately to ensure the highest quality in both print and packaging. Pricing is slightly higher.
Yes, we can! If your original is an 8.5" x 11" or 11" x 17" file with high resolution, we're happy to enlarge your images. Remember that your finished prints may differ slightly from our standard sizes if we have to make adjustments to keep the final product proportional. But don't worry! If exact sizing is and issue, just contact us and we'll do our best to accommodate.
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!
