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.
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.
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.

Event Programs are printed booklets, brochures, catalogs, or pamphlets you can print in advance and provide for the guests at your events. They're versatile and useful and they help you share all the information your attendees could ever need. If you've got lots of information you want everyone to know, Event Programs are an ideal way to share. Use them to clearly lay out the order of activities, list participants, or add special notes about your gathering or organization. They also make cool keepsakes for attendees. Event Programs are the perfect place to express your thanks to anyone who provided promotional items, donated funds, or did volunteer work for your event.

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 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.

I know that PrintShopMail will do it, but I was wandering if there was a less expensive solution out there so that I could get numbered tickets (usually 4-up) right off the Xerox. I just want to avoid having to go the the Windmill after trimming and doing it the old fashion way. There is a tiny little copy shop here in town that is doing it, and am willing to bet that they are not using PrintShopMail, but I'm also not going to ask them to share their methods with a competitor. There has to be cheaper solution. I know that I can do it with auto page numbering in Indesign, but that means I can only print raffle tickets 1-up which wont work.
Third, for extra security, we also offer high-security ticket stock which is heat-activated. 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.
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.
