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)
We'll create our Event Programs as single fold documents (a single fold refers to one fold, directly in the center of the printed sheet, meaning a single sheet translates into a 4-page Event Program) so 4-page programs will not be bound. Single fold programs are perfect for small events such as music or dance recitals, school plays or concerts, community variety shows, or other short, local events.
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.
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.
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.
Custom ticket printing is often required in a lot of events. Concert, raffle, movie, and theater tickets are kinds of tickets that need to have a number. Ticket numbers function like an identification card. The ticket should always be with its owner because that is a person’s proof that they paid for a concert or movie, or the owner of a winning ticket.
Tyvek® is not paper. It's a tough, waterproof, and durable fabric. Inkjet printers are the optimal printing technology for Tyvek® fabric. Therefore, logos and text printing on Tyvek® will have less brightness and clarity (for example, sharp edges) than laser printing on high gloss paper. However, printing on a Tyvek® wristband is durable and will not smear or rub.

Use our pre-printed and numbered double coupon tickets as raffle tickets for maximum convenience. One numbered ticket can be given to the participant, while the duplicate number is dropped in a bin for prize drawings. Choose from a variety of color options to add interest to your next event. For events with a large number of raffle items, browse our selection of tags to help identify items available for prizes.
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.
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. :-)
The next step is to create the simple Excel workbook that contains the ticket numbers. Open a blank Excel sheet. Using Figure B as a guide, create the ticket numbering sheet and save it, making sure to note the new workbook's name and location. As we discussed earlier, the Excel workbook stores the ticket numbers. In this example, we'll create 11 tickets numbered 100 through 110. You'll need to update the ticket values for each merge.
