You probably know about Word's mail merge feature, and you might even use it to print labels or other documents, where some of the information changes (such as form letters). You can use the same feature with Publisher. Although you might not think of Publisher as an Office app, it comes with several different versions of Office. In this article, I'll show you how to print sequentially numbered tickets using Publisher and Excel. This article provides instructions for Publisher 2007, 2010, and 2013.
For your convenience, we offer "My Files" as an online storage space for any graphics or logos you might want added to your custom orders.

You can even add notes to any files you upload, and, if you need to discuss your files before you order, you can just check "have a customer support agent contact me about this file" and we'll contact you within a couple business days to go over any questions or concerns.
Create excitement for your event with professional-looking tickets you can make yourself.

If you’re producing any kind of numbered items in-house that are multiple-up on a sheet where you need to control all the variables to meet your production needs, the autonumbering feature through numbered lists is the way to go! Just step and repeat away & InDesign will do all the work. No need to fool with a seperate “numbers” file or deal with a data merged document. I think it’s by far the best option for basic numbering.
GREAT tip with lots of uses! Thank you. This will save me hours of work on some tickets I’m designing. However, I also need to set up table tents that have numbers on them. They’re 2-up, and are folded, so each number needs to appear twice on the same page. In short, I want a page with 1/1 and 2/2, and I’m getting 1/2 and 3/4. Am I missing an obvious fix? Thank you.
When planning your next big event or raffle, tickets are essential for keeping track of attendees and participants. There's no need to pay for expensive design and printing costs when you can customize your own tickets or choose from our pre-printed selection! No matter what the event, we have the right ticketing solution, saving you time and expenses that can be spent on the actual event!
Start with images at 300 dpi resolution at print size in any of the following file formats: JPEG, TIFF, or EPS. To design your own ticket, recommended file types are TIFF, JPG, AI (Illustrator), or PSD (Photoshop) with a high resolution (300 dpi). You may also want to let us know what fonts you are using. Please view our specifications page for more information.
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.
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!!
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.
Use our pre-printed and numbered double coupon tickets as raffle tickets for maximum convenience. One numbered ticket can be given to the participant, while the duplicate number is dropped in a bin for prize drawings. Choose from a variety of color options to add interest to your next event. For events with a large number of raffle items, browse our selection of tags to help identify items available for prizes.
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.
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.
