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.
Good morning! Directions are clear for sure but when i go to merge the first ticket is one but the second number on the raffle ticket is two. i have four raffle tickets per page the first three are messed up but the forth is correct all the way down to 500. Any ideas? i have tried with a header and without a header. i even made the first number with a formula. it does work with out putting next record but like you said it is four tickets with the same number and that would use a ton of ink. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
In addition, we offer a heat sensitive security paper. This is also heavy weight card stock with matte finish, plus some extras for our customers who take a serious stance against ticket fraud. The message, "Security Paper, Do Not Duplicate," is printed at a 45 degree angle, in a very light green, heat-sensitive ink. A slight rise in temperate, such as that generated by rubbing, blowing, or holding the ticket next to a light bulb or other heat source, turns the ink from light green to light yellow. Your ticket takers can tell immediately whether the ticket is valid or not! Once the paper cools down again, the message returns to its original color.
Select the Text Tool (T) and start dragging a text box that will wrap around the whole ticket including the crop marks. This is very important since the Data Merge will automatically calculate the duplication. Then open up the Text Frame Option (Command + B) and set the Inset spacing to 1p4 for the top and 1p8 for the left. Of course, you can place the text for the numbers anywhere you like. I set the numbers to a small text.
