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).
Once you've placed your order, it's proof time. Customer Support hands off your specifications to the design team. Our talented graphic professionals will generate and email you an electronic proof by the end of the next business day. Just look it over and, if it meets your needs, email us back to approve! One you've approved the proof and chosen a shipping option, we'll finalize the order by charging your credit card and start processing your tickets.

I am printing many pages of tickets. Each page has 5 tickets and I would like to sequentially put a number on each ticket. I have tried to use the auto page numbering feature but that is putting the same number on each of the 5 tickets and then increments for the next page -- not what I need. Also, can the numbering not suppress the leading zeroes? Thanks....


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!

Our raffle ticket templates have a placeholder for a ticket number, usually “xxx” to remind you it needs to be replaced. Select it, click Insert Merge Field > Ticket. Do the same for the second ticket number placeholder. Most tickets will have two number placeholders because one part of the ticket is for the raffle host (you) and the other is for the purchaser.
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.
So fast that sometimes we amaze ourselves. Usually, if you place your online template order before 3 p.m. CST, it will ship out from our facility the next business day: twenty-four hour turnaround! Place your order Monday before 3 p.m. CST, and it will ship out Tuesday. Remember, weekends don't count, only count business days, so if you place your order Saturday, it will be processed as a Monday order and ship out Tuesday. For quantities over 5000 and stapled ticket orders, the processing time will be longer. Click here for more details about Quick Ticket Processing Time.
Your raffle might be subject to gaming commission or tax laws. Check with your municipality, state or province, and federal governments to make sure your raffle is legal. These government departments aren’t just enforcers. They are often great resources on how to run a successful fund raising raffle. Raffles are fun! Getting in trouble with the law or tax man is not.
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.
You can! Our digital proofs offer a good facsimile of your physical ticket, but if you're worried about the quality of our online templates or an image you uploaded to your template, you can call our Customer Support at 888 771 0809 and request a physical sample for free. We'll put your order on hold and send you one unperforated sample sheet, via UPS Next Day Air, at no cost.
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.
All in a day's work! Yes, we can print tickets with reserved seating (e.g. Section A, Row 1, Seat 1). We just need to know what the seating options at your venue look like. You can set up the venue yourself, with our user-friendly venue editor. Just download the app (under point 3), enter your details, and email the file to us. There's no charge for this service! You can even incorporate different price levels (e.g. Main Floor = $15, Balcony = $20) or different areas (e.g. VIP, Premium) in the venue file.
Vinyl Stickers are waterproof and printed with UV stable ink, so you can stick them in windows or outside with the knowledge that they'll last a long time, with no fear of damage caused by sun or rain! They come in 4 shapes: square, rectangle, circle, and oval, with a "kiss" or die cut: the top layer is cut but not the adhesive backing. Choose Vinyl Stickers if you need your Stickers to hang around in inclement weather, providing advertising over a long period of time.
You probably know about Word's mail merge feature, and you might even use it to print labels or other documents, where some of the information changes (such as form letters). You can use the same feature with Publisher. Although you might not think of Publisher as an Office app, it comes with several different versions of Office. In this article, I'll show you how to print sequentially numbered tickets using Publisher and Excel. This article provides instructions for Publisher 2007, 2010, and 2013.
