Having your event tickets professionally printed for your special occasion can add a sense of authenticity and exclusivity. Admission tickets can include the date and time of the event, the address, your company’s logo, and even special promotional offers. These vouchers can be printed in spot PMS colors or full color on one side or both. There is also the option to add a perforation on the side or have the tickets numbered to help keep track of how many people attend your gathering.
I am creating a file in inDesign for a client that is asking for numbered tickets. They'd like to be able to print a specific number for each ticket. I've read some of the older answers for similar questions that refer to Data Merge, but I'd prefer not to take that route if avoidable. What I'd ultimately like to do is create a space for the numbers to go, select the number of pages within the Print menu, and have the spaces populate with the corresponding numbers while printing.
Create three Numbering Lists, and make sure you check to keep numbering accross multiple stories. Create three text frames, insert just blank space in each and apply numbering format but with different Numbering List selected. Then group text frames with your ticket and you are done. Now simply duplicate group across page and that's it. Numbering will be automatically increased.
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.
The SEQ or Sequential Numbering Function in Word is the best and quickest way to number your tickets. Many raffle ticket templates use them, yet few sites explain how it works. To see if it uses the SEQ function, you need to download the template first. Then, open it in Word, click right in the middle of where a serial number is, and then right-click.
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. :-)
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.
With unique tickets come unique prices! The cost of your Design Your Own ticket will depend on what you order, based on variables like quantity, paper type, stapling, and size. You can calculate the cost before you start designing by entering this information at the bottom of the DYO web page. The price will appear in the bottom right hand corner, just above the box where you can calculate shipping on the order!
We offer standard security microtext printed on the back and is FREE (no charge). The security feature is the TicketPrinting.com logo with security microtext diagonally across. Security microtext is extremely small, and in almost all cases, will not be legible when copied. The security message is printed on the back of the DYO ticket, which means that, if you choose a double sided ticket, you'll want to be careful not to print your image and text on top of it.
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.
