Of course! After you've decided upon your design, placed your order, and provided us with any necessary files, we'll generate a digital proof for you. It should appear in your inbox 1 business day after you place your order. We never print anything until you're satisfied with the proof, so you'll need to approve your electronically sent proof before we begin processing.
Security paper features the message, "Security Paper, Do Not Duplicate," printed at a 45 degree angle in heat sensitive ink. Applying a little heat by rubbing, blowing, or holding the ticket next to a light bulb changes the ink from light green to light yellow. Your ticket takers can see immediately whether the ticket is valid or not. Once the paper cools down again, it returns to its original color.

Actually, you can purchase online tickets in any quantity over 50. We've replaced our drop down quantity lists with text boxes where you can enter just the number of tickets that you need. Most of our online templates are available in any quantity over 50 items. However, Posters and Flyers can be ordered in quantities as low as 5. Since our per item price drops as your order gets bigger, in many cases, you can order more items for the same price.


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.
If you need a shipping estimate on multiple items, select one after the other, change the quantities, type in a start number, and add them to your cart by clicking "continue". Once your items are in the cart, you can enter your zip code into the "estimate shipping costs" box in the bottom right hand corner of the page to generate a pop-up window listing available shipping options and costs.
Sure, you can easily make changes to your custom order any time before you've approved the proof. Once you receive your proof from design@ticketprinting.com, just reply to the email and let our design team know what you want changed. We'll fix the proof and email you a new one by the end of the next business day the latest. We do charge the credit card on file and start printing your order as soon as you've approved the proof, so if you need to make changes after approving the final proof, please call Customer Support at 888 771 0809 as soon as possible. We'll see what we can do!
We ask our customers to approve an electronic version of their proof before we begin processing anything, and we never begin printing until you're satisfied with the proof. It's got to be right before we start! Proofs usually take a day or two to create, depending on how much design and layout work your Event Program requires. If you a want a printed proof, we're more than happy to send it via Next Day Air. Remember, this will delay the start of processing by at least one business day.
I’m not sure which version of InDesign first introduced printing Thumbnails like this, but even if yours doesn’t support that, your printer driver may have a similar feature of its own. Check the printer’s own dialog box by clicking “Setup…” near the bottom left corner of the Print dialog and dismissing the warning, then clicking “Preferences…” in Windows’s Print dialog that comes up (I’m not sure how to access this on Mac OS X, but I’m pretty sure there’s an easy way). For instance, on many HP printers, the feature you want is called “Pages per sheet” and has a drop-down offering 1, 2, 4, 9, or 16 pages per sheet.
Event Programs are the perfect way to keep things running smoothly. You can use them to provide schedules, descriptions, maps, and a catalog of other details that your guests will need, in a handy booklet format they can carry around with them all day. They're a great way to communicate the organization of your event with introductions, steps, and duration of activities.
First, decide what you want your Event Badges to look like. Already have an idea? You can use your own images, photos, designs, or logos to create your badges. Economy Event Badges and VIP Badges can be designed and sent to us in most standard file formats: TIFF, JPEG, PDF, GIF. Please extend the full color background .125" on all sides, beyond the badge size of 3.375" x 2.125". If you have a legal right to reproduce any piece of art, we can add it to your Event Badges.

If you already have a design and want to send us a print-ready file, just make sure your images are set at 300 dpi resolution, with the print size recommended for best print quality. If you don't have an image, or if your image's resolution is too low, our design team can still use graphics from our image library. We'll send you an electronic proof before we print anything. If it's not what you want, you can always request changes before approving it.

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.
If you send us a print-ready file, please omit the seating information as well as the perforated stub line. Just send us an additional mock up indicating the location of the seating information and stub line. We need to use additional tools to print individual seating information for each ticket, and to perforate the ticket stub, rather than simply print a dotted line.
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 talented graphic design team is standing by to create your perfect Sticker, no matter where you are in the design process. Hopelessly mired in a creative wasteland? We can design your Stickers for you from scratch! We can also create your Stickers using any images and text you send us. Have a vague idea of what you want but lack the visual talent to bring it to life? Send us a rough mock up of your proposed Sticker and we'll fix it up to suit your needs. No art skills to speak of? If you can describe the design you want, we'll do the rest.
They really do! Event Badges let you easily identify folks who belong in your event. Staff can tell at a glance whether they are looking at a guest or a gatecrasher! Event Badges can also work as highly visible Event Tickets. You can increase the safety of your event even more when you add security bar codes to each badge. This helps you to prevent fraud: just scan the bar code and you'll know right away whether the badge is legitimate.
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.
If you're looking to dress up your space, such as decorating a bulletin board or a classroom, choose from a variety of colorful accent tickets to use as backgrounds or eye-catching elements to draw attention to important topics. Accent tickets come pre-cut and ready to use. Choose different colors and sizes for added interest. Write or draw on the tickets to use them as nametags or labels or to introduce key classroom concepts in an interesting, colorful way.
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.

There's a lot of wiggle room here. The printable area of a wristband measures 0.85 by 7 inches, but there's no character limit. Instead, the number of characters you'll be able to fit on your Wristband will depends on the font style, font size, and layout. The less text you use, the better your results will be, as larger printing just stand out more, and is easier to read. If you really want a lot of text, we'll help you adjust font style and size to make it work.


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)
If you need a shipping estimate on multiple items, select one after the other, change the quantities, type in a start number, and add them to your cart by clicking "continue". Once your items are in the cart, you can enter your zip code into the "estimate shipping costs" box in the bottom right hand corner of the page to generate a pop-up window listing available shipping options and costs.
Actually, you can purchase online tickets in any quantity over 50. We've replaced our drop down quantity lists with text boxes where you can enter just the number of tickets that you need. Most of our online templates are available in any quantity over 50 items. However, Posters and Flyers can be ordered in quantities as low as 5. Since our per item price drops as your order gets bigger, in many cases, you can order more items for the same price.
Yes! Our customers are unique, and we try to make it easy to customize our templates, so we offer plenty of online templates with space to upload your own image. Just type "image" into our search box and click GO and you'll find many templates that should suit your needs. Remember that online templates cannot be altered: you can only add text or images to the available fields. Using our free templates is a totally automated process, which keeps our service fast and our products affordable. If you want to add an image to a template without an image upload box, or change the ticket in any other way, you'll need a Custom Ticket order. Can't quite find the template that suits you? Just email us at support@ticketprinting.com with your ticket details and we'll provide you with a fast quote.

We sure can! For a small fee, we can print any kind of graphics on your wristbands whether you choose either a graphic from our image library or your own logo or image, save in a common file format at 300 dpi resolution at print size. As you consider design, just remember that the printable area of an Event Wristband measures 0.85 x 7 inches, which means your logo will be fairly small. Small text within your graphic will probably not be readable. Don't despair! There's a fix for that: in many cases, our design team can erase small text from the graphic. We can add the text in a larger font and print it next to the graphic, if you like. Please also keep in mind that inkjet printers are the optimal printing technology for Tyvek® fabric. You may notice that logos and text printing on Tyvek® will have less brightness and clarity (for example, sharp edges) than laser printing on high gloss paper.
If you want to estimate shipping costs for an order of more than one template, select one after the other, change the quantities, type in a start number, and add them to your cart by clicking on "continue". Once all your items are in the cart, type your zip code into the "estimate shipping costs" box in the bottom right hand corner to open the pop-up window with available shipping options and costs.

Yes, we've tried to make it easy to reorder your tickets, even if you want to change them a bit. Simply click on "My Account" and go to your history. Find the ticket you would like to reorder, click on it, and then click on the reorder option button. You will see the screen where you originally filled in your ticket template, and you can make changes there before placing your order.
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.

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.
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.
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.

Yes! Due to popular demand, we now sell roll tickets in red, white, or blue, with 2000 tickets per roll. If you're looking for fast, affordable bulk tickets for carnivals or other events where you need to distribute a high volume of plain tickets in a short period of time, roll tickets offer an easy solution. Single roll tickets are great for games and gate control, while double roll tickets help you add a prize draw or other contest to your event.

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.

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).
Security paper features the message, "Security Paper, Do Not Duplicate," printed at a 45 degree angle in heat sensitive ink. Applying a little heat by rubbing, blowing, or holding the ticket next to a light bulb changes the ink from light green to light yellow. Your ticket takers can see immediately whether the ticket is valid or not. Once the paper cools down again, it returns to its original color.
It’s best to use something other than general copy paper when printing raffle tickets. Heavier weight paper, or even card stock, could be a better choice. Not only does it look more professional, but the tickets will tear off more easily along the perforation. Choose paper colors on the lighter end of the spectrum so that the template design shows up clearly when printed.
The Heat Sensitive Security paper has micro text in green ink on one side, usually the back of the ticket. If you add small text to the back, it might not be readable. If you have a lot of text or an image that covers the whole back of the ticket, it will be printed over the micro text and you will not be able to use the security feature to verify the ticket's authenticity.
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 also help you remember everyone's name identify and allow you to identify participants by name, bar code, or even seating designation.
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.
Preserving the environment is important to 48HourPrint.com. Our tickets are printed on recycled cover stock, which delivers excellent ticket printing results on stock that is brighter and more uniform in color. Recycled cover stock is our standard stock, at no extra cost to you. Tickets are printed in full color on both sides on 14 point cover stock, with your choice of matte coating, gloss coating, high-gloss U.V. coating, or C1S (coating on one side).
You use InDesign or Illustrator and things like variables to increment numbers. Doesn't matter in your case, though. If you really are going to print it with an online service, you will just create a PDF with 300 separate pages/ artboards and could just as well hack in the numbers manualyl or use something liek automatic page numbering to increment them.
Peter is correct and for the life of me I can never replicate a ticket the 2nd time. I only do tickets 2-3 times a year. The rest of the time the order is so large I sub it out to tickets printer. My question is how do you place the same list over and over? Let's say the tickets are 3 up and you need 600 tickets. I can see placing the file with #s 1-200 top ticket on the stub, then placing it again for the ticket itself. But wouldn't you need 2 more files: from 201-400 and 401-600 to end up with correct imposition for print, cut, stack?
