I had wanted to create a file that didn't require Excel as the data source, so I created one using SEQ fields. It was terrible and too huge to mention (thanks Doug Robbins), so I recreated it using Word as the data source so that people who only have Word can use it. You can create up to 5,000 tickets without changing the data file. If you only have Word and need to create more than 5,000 tickets, please don't type the ticket numbers. Just drop me an email and I'll create another data file for you with the required numbers.
We ask our customers to approve an electronic version of their proof before we begin processing anything, and we never begin printing until you're satisfied with the proof. It's got to be right before we start! Proofs usually take a day or two to create, depending on how much design and layout work your Event Program requires. If you a want a printed proof, we're more than happy to send it via Next Day Air. Remember, this will delay the start of processing by at least one business day.

Our Tyvek® Crowd Control Wristbands are inexpensive, so you can order enough for everyone. Tyvek® Wristbands are also incredibly durable and secure: they stay on until they're cut off, so your clients can't transfer wristbands. This allows your staff to tell at a glance whether a patron has bought a ticket or whether it's time to eject a gatecrasher. At large events with multiple levels of access, Event Wristbands make it easy to determine who belongs where. Using wristbands to identify guests over the age of 21 keeps your bar safe from underage drinkers! Wristbands for your staff and volunteers can keep the backstage area secure.
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)
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).

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.
Preserving the environment is important to 48HourPrint.com. Our tickets are printed on recycled cover stock, which delivers excellent ticket printing results on stock that is brighter and more uniform in color. Recycled cover stock is our standard stock, at no extra cost to you. Tickets are printed in full color on both sides on 14 point cover stock, with your choice of matte coating, gloss coating, high-gloss U.V. coating, or C1S (coating on one side).

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.


Please keep in mind that this will delay your order, as we never begin printing until you approve your proof. If you call to request your physical proof after UPS Next Day Air pick up has left, we will not be able to ship the sample sheet the same day. Once you receive your physical proof, please call Customer Support to either confirm your order or cancel. There is no cost to cancel, we will refund your order and you can make the necessary changes to your Design Your Own ticket before resubmitting the order.

Once you approve the proof, we'll begin processing. Programs that are 4 pages long, with orders of 5000 or less, will ship on the 4th business day after approval. Larger print runs, or programs of 8 to 32 pages, with orders of 10,000 or less, will ship by the 6th business day after approval. More questions? Just call 888-771-0809 and our friendly customer service reps will tell you what you need to know.
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.
There's a lot of wiggle room here. The printable area of a wristband measures 0.85 by 7 inches, but there's no character limit. Instead, the number of characters you'll be able to fit on your Wristband will depends on the font style, font size, and layout. The less text you use, the better your results will be, as larger printing just stand out more, and is easier to read. If you really want a lot of text, we'll help you adjust font style and size to make it work.
If you can design your image at 300 dpi resolution at print size, we can make it work. It's especially important to start with 300 dpi if you have text in you image. For non-bleed tickets (those with a white border), keep the image 0.17" in from the cut size on all four sides. For bleed tickets (those where the color or image extends to the edge of the ticket), extend the background color or image 0.1 inch beyond cut size on all sides. Keep all text information 0.1 inch within cut size to avoid it being cut off.
Make sure that your image is in an accepted file format (TIF, JPG, PNG, GIF, or BMP) and does not exceed the maximum file size (49 MB). If you are still having trouble please try to convert it to a different file format (from JPG to TIF or the other way around). Changing color modes may help, although the ideal color mode is RGB. If none of these steps resolve the issue, try using a different browser. (For instance, if you are using Internet Explorer try switching to Mozilla Firefox or vice versa).

We sequentially number all our Event Tickets, Raffle Tickets, Drink Tickets, and VIP Passes to keep your event secure! All you have to do is enter the first number in the line that says "Start Number". If you enter "001" and order 250 tickets the numbering will go from 001 up to 250. If you enter "000" and order 250 tickets the numbering will go from 000 up to 249. For increased security, some of our customers choose larger, random numbers for their start number. This makes it much harder for people to create convincing forgeries.
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.

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. :-)
Ready to place your order? We'll need all your order information, including artwork to the correct specifications. You can email everything to support@ticketprinting.com, or you can upload your files to "My Files" in your account online. We'll also need your shipping and billing information. For your safety, please call Customer Support to provide your credit card information - email is not a secure channel for your personal details! We do not charge your credit card until you approve your proof, but we do need it to get the order placed.
You’ve got some tips to help make your raffle more successful. You’ve got several free Word ticket templates to choose from. You know how to sequentially number tickets in two different ways. All that is left for you to do is go sell those tickets, have the draw, and then feel good about helping someone out. All for pennies on the dollar over ordering custom made tickets.
Remember that you must update the values in the sheet if you want to continue the numbering series with the next batch of tickets. For instance, if you want your next batch of tickets to start with 112, you'd open the workbook and change the value 100 to 112, and update the remaining values accordingly. Don't forget to save the workbook after updating the values.
