Microsoft Publisher, the desktop publishing component of the Professional version of the Office Suite, can perform many time-saving tasks for busy business owners, including layout and design work. It can even help you avoid a shopping run to try to find tickets for your next employee picnic, holiday giveaway or executive board meeting. Create your own tickets, including the vital sequential ordering needed for raffles or attendance tracking, using Publisher’s page numbering. With a few tricky manipulations of the page number process, you can start running the numbers in an entirely new fashion.
By using your favorite spellchecker before you add that text to the template, you can ensure that your product has that professional look. Since we don't offer the option of spell check on templates at this time, you can try typing the text into MS Word or another word processing program, spell check it there, and then just copy the text into the template lines.

Hello Bruce, I seem to be having a different problem altogether. I created my ticket in word using logos and text boxes as needed, ticket looks great. I followed your very clear instructions but when I did the Finish & Merge I got this message, "You cannot include DATA, NEXT, NEXTIF, or SKIPIF fields in comments, headers, footers, footnotes or endnotes." I then click on OK and get this, "A field calculation error occurred in record 1. Bruce any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!!

If you've saved it (in a standard file format) we can probably print it! PDF, JPG, GIF, TIF, EPS, INDD, or AI files will all work. Just make sure that your files are saved at 300 DPI (dots per square inch) at 100% print size. This will ensure high quality production. You can email image files to support@ticketprinting.com, or you can use our My Files feature (found in your account online) to upload your files directly to our design team.
All of our print products carry the same guarantee: if your order isn't perfect, we'll fix it. We're completely confident that we can provide you with the highest quality Stickers available, and we're honor bound to guarantee that you're satisfied with our work. If, for any reason, we have not met your expectations, please let us know and we will happily reprint your order.
Custom Tickets offer the same great options as all our ticket templates! We can print full color or black ink on white heavy weight card stock (matte or semi-gloss finish) or white medium weight office paper (matte finish). The heavy weight card stock is about the same weight as an expensive business card or greeting card. The white office paper is slightly heavier than the regular copy paper.
In additions to standard features like individual numbering and unique designs, we offer a heat sensitive security paper for those who need an extra degree of assurance. This heavy weight card stock features a matte finish and a security message printing in heat-sensitive ink. The phrase, "Security Paper, Do Not Duplicate," is printed at a 45 degree angle on one side in a very light, green, heat sensitive ink. Rubbing, blowing, or holding the ticket next to any heat source will change the color of the ink from light green to light yellow, for instant ticket validation. Once the paper cools down, it returns to its original color.
Peter is correct and for the life of me I can never replicate a ticket the 2nd time. I only do tickets 2-3 times a year. The rest of the time the order is so large I sub it out to tickets printer. My question is how do you place the same list over and over? Let's say the tickets are 3 up and you need 600 tickets. I can see placing the file with #s 1-200 top ticket on the stub, then placing it again for the ticket itself. But wouldn't you need 2 more files: from 201-400 and 401-600 to end up with correct imposition for print, cut, stack?
Promote your events with professionally-printed tickets. Event tickets are used for advertising upcoming events like seminars, fairs and concerts. These are also used as invitations during special occasions. It is best to print out event tickets which can last until the end of an event in case you need reference for your guests' presence/proof of payment. Your attendees can make a souvenir out of your durable tickets for a memorable event.

That depends on the template you've chosen. Each template features a unique design and layout, so the number of characters per line is different for every online template. Don't worry; it's easy to tell whether or not your text fits on the template. Just enter all your information into the ticket template and then click "View Proof" at the bottom of the page. If your text doesn't fit, any lines with too many characters will appear in red on your proof. From there, you can go back to the template and make it work: either shorten the line or try to break it up in two lines, if the template layout allows for that. Remember that capital letters need more space than lower case letters, and vertical layouts usually allow for less text than horizontal layouts.
Another fan of Fusion Pro Desktop here. This is exactly what you need. We have sold both PrintShop Mail and Fusion Pro Desktop for this very application (numbering) and other VDP applications. Fusion Pro Desktop easily beats PrintShop Mail from both a price and performance viewpoint. You could also try Printer's Bench http://www.elkriversystems.com/ProductsList.aspx for a good entry level package

When planning your next big event or raffle, tickets are essential for keeping track of attendees and participants. There's no need to pay for expensive design and printing costs when you can customize your own tickets or choose from our pre-printed selection! No matter what the event, we have the right ticketing solution, saving you time and expenses that can be spent on the actual event!
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.

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.
i’ve had to do tons of this lately and found that for the amounts of tickets being done (e.g. 7000 x 10 tickets + cover & mailer) that chuckT’s solution almost 2 years ago is similar to what i use. would be interested to know if others doing similar VDP are using a wholly indesign/excel solution, or if specific VDP software such as XMPie are being used.
