In additions to standard features like individual numbering and unique designs, we offer a heat sensitive security paper for those who need an extra degree of assurance. This heavy weight card stock features a matte finish and a security message printing in heat-sensitive ink. The phrase, "Security Paper, Do Not Duplicate," is printed at a 45 degree angle on one side in a very light, green, heat sensitive ink. Rubbing, blowing, or holding the ticket next to any heat source will change the color of the ink from light green to light yellow, for instant ticket validation. Once the paper cools down, it returns to its original color.
I have done this twice now, getting flustered. The ticket part the person keeps has the correct sequential number on it, but the side that we keep has the same number on it for the whole page. What part am I missing, at first I did not uncheck the box, but this time I did but have the same number on the stub side that we keep with the person's name, etc
Let us know so we can fix it! Just reply to the proof email from design@ticketprinting.com to tell our design team about the problem and what you want changed. It's no problem for us, and we want to make it perfect. Out design team will apply the changes, generate a new proof, and email it to you by the end of the next business day at the latest. Minor changes or mistakes on our side will generally be corrected the same business day. So please let us know if you're not happy and give us a chance to make you happy!
Our digital printers can print in black ink on a colored Wristband, or print in full color on white Wristbands. If you need white text, we can offer you a workaround by printing a color background on a white Wristband. Keep in mind that we can't print all the way to the edges. Event Wristbands measure 1 by 10 inches, but the printable area measure 0.85 by 7 inches. You'll see white margins on the top, bottom, left, and right of the wristband.
The event will set up certain prizes. Raffle tickets are then sold, and the people told to hold them until the raffle is held. Raffle tickets are then drawn randomly, and the holders of the winning tickets get a prize. While organizers can be as creative as they wish, offering bulk purchases of tickets and discounts, the basic rules stay the same. The benefit of holding raffles is that donors enjoy the anticipation of possibly winning a prize, while donating to a charity. This makes raffle tickets one of the most popular ways to earn for a nonprofit.
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.

Our design team can create a Custom Ticket from scratch, incorporating your design ideas as well as any images or logos you may have. They can also use any online template background that you like, design a ticket using artwork that you send us, or combine all of the above. Designing a custom ticket from scratch doesn't cost any more than our other Custom Ticket options.
It is important that the barcode is not cut off or distorted. Barcodes printed over a pattern or text will not be scan able. If you are using the Heat Sensitive Security paper and print a barcode on the side with the micro text, the barcode will not be scan able. It is also important to keep the area white behind the barcode, making sure there are no patterns or colors to interfere with the scanning.
Our Tyvek® Crowd Control Wristbands are inexpensive, so you can order enough for everyone. Tyvek® Wristbands are also incredibly durable and secure: they stay on until they're cut off, so your clients can't transfer wristbands. This allows your staff to tell at a glance whether a patron has bought a ticket or whether it's time to eject a gatecrasher. At large events with multiple levels of access, Event Wristbands make it easy to determine who belongs where. Using wristbands to identify guests over the age of 21 keeps your bar safe from underage drinkers! Wristbands for your staff and volunteers can keep the backstage area secure.
Use space on the back of tickets for promoting yourself or someone else’s business. Our 3.5” x 8.5” page ticket size offers a generous amount of room for ads. Sell the space on your tickets to local advertisers or offer it as a value-added opportunity to your event sponsors. You can also print coupons on the back of tickets, allowing you the ability to track promotions.
If you've saved it (in a standard file format) we can probably print it! PDF, JPG, GIF, TIF, EPS, INDD, or AI files will all work. Just make sure that your files are saved at 300 DPI (dots per square inch) at 100% print size. This will ensure high quality production. You can email image files to support@ticketprinting.com, or you can use our My Files feature (found in your account online) to upload your files directly to our design team.
Microsoft Publisher, the desktop publishing component of the Professional version of the Office Suite, can perform many time-saving tasks for busy business owners, including layout and design work. It can even help you avoid a shopping run to try to find tickets for your next employee picnic, holiday giveaway or executive board meeting. Create your own tickets, including the vital sequential ordering needed for raffles or attendance tracking, using Publisher’s page numbering. With a few tricky manipulations of the page number process, you can start running the numbers in an entirely new fashion.
There is very simple solution that we use and that is to lay out the sheet say 6 up on a A4 sheet as a master page and in document setup set the number of pages to 1,000 if that is the amount you require. Put a page number on each ticket on the page and although they will all have the same number on each page, we put the the first two letters of the customers business name before each number followed by the letters of the alphabet so it then reads for example BT1A, BT2A, BT3A, BT1B, BT2B, BT2C and so on as each page is printed.
The sizes of our customers' monitors vary, but the sizes of our tickets have been standardized! The description on the template page will tell you the size of your completed, cut ticket. The image that you see while you are filling out the text fields for your tickets might not even be to scale. Your proof will be scaled to your computer screen, but the size may change if it's saved and opened with another program. In other words, what you see on the screen is merely an image. The actual dimensions of your tickets are those written in the description, and they don't change.
Of course! The uses of Event Wristbands are limited only by your imagination. Many people do find them useful as VIP Wristbands! Our VIP Tyvek® Wristbands can be printed with high quality and unique graphics that will show your commitment to providing each of your VIPs with the best experience you can offer. All VIP Wristbands are secure and comfortable, and they allow your staff to quickly and easily identify who belongs in the special access VIP areas.
We use the auto page numbering trick here, the trick is to do it as spreads. You just make your pages the same size as the ticket with crops and bleeds. Then set up the shell on the master page and place your auto page number where you want your numbers. Each pages is the next number. You can also have two sets of numbers for perforated ticket. You then can use the page start options to add to the numbers and keep the same number of total numbers. For example you would do a new page start after number 99. 0001 to 0099 so it doesn't add two "0's" to the front of 100 and you get 00100 when you want 0100. Works great for small quantities, we have done up to 1000+ tickets and once you do it once or twice it is a snap to set up. To avoid having to do 1000 pages just send the tickets in groups. Usually between 25 to 100 at a time works good depending on artwork file size. Just save each time before sending to printer and name the file with what the tickets are. Like "MyTickets-0001-0100.Indd". Makes it easier to go back if you have a problem. You can even do two rolls of tickets if your using 12 x 18 sheets by flipping the sheet and doing one row along the top and one along the bottom on reverse side. That is if your ticket is single Sided. Two sided tickets are a bit trickier. :-)
By using your favorite spellchecker before you add that text to the template, you can ensure that your product has that professional look. Since we don't offer the option of spell check on templates at this time, you can try typing the text into MS Word or another word processing program, spell check it there, and then just copy the text into the template lines.

Have trouble remembering names? Event Badges really work well as nametags. Need to stay organized? Add a designation on each badge that helps you easily divide your guests into smaller groups. Want to really put your badges to work? Print each one with all the data you might need: indicate varying levels of access, contribution, or participation. Event Badges are also a great way to help you advertise your sponsors, or even to showcase your own logo, or other visual work you wish to honor. Plus, they make interesting souvenirs.

You don’t have to be a born salesperson to move all your tickets, but the better your sales tactics, the more successful you’ll probably be. Peter Kajanzy teaches how to crush a sale with pro techniques. One bit of advice he offers: When people ask for the price, instead of doing a complex breakdown of one for $2, three for $5, and so on, go straight to “You can buy five tickets for $8.”
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.
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.

Every time we ship you a package, we send a confirmation email containing a UPS tracking number. Click here and enter this tracking number and UPS will tell you what you want to know!

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.

The only glitch is that our shipping cost estimator only works with US Zip Codes. To estimate shipping costs outside the US, add the item or items to your shopping cart and begin the check out process. The easiest way is to change the template quantity from the default number to the number of products you need and type in a start number before adding the item to your cart. Once you have entered your shipping address you will be taken to a page listing available shipping options and their prices.

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.
