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....
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. :-)

We print in RGB, so it's best to design the file in RGB color mode. However, there are always slight color differences between the print file, the screen display, and the actual printed product. If you want to make sure the colors will come out right, please call our Customer Service at 888 771 0809 to request a free printed proof. We will put your order on hold and send you one un-perforated and un-cut sample sheet via Fed Ex Overnight at no cost to you.
Thanks very much for your prompt reply, which reassured me that I was on the right path. From having read various Help topics, I suspected that I'd have to use an Excel data source for the numbers. Fortunately, my knowledge of Excel was good enough to know about the drag and drop facility to create automatic sequential numbering, so the data source creation was easy. In the end, it was the mail merge (no surprises?) which proved a tad tricky, but I got there in the end. I've used MM many times and quite happily in Word documents, but for Publisher label format, it was of course a bit different. The important bit that I had to discover for myself was the significance of, after getting to the Print stage, going into Print options, to Publication & Paper Settings, and selecting Multiple Pages per Sheet (& in my case, also "Single-sided" cos my default of duplex printing had come up). But TA-DA!  All is fine now. Thanks very much again.
We've got tons of Event Kits that feature seven types of matching event collateral: Event Tickets, Raffle Tickets, Drink Tickets, Posters, Flyers, Invitations, and VIP Passes, all printed with the same design for a smart, put-together look.

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.
The ordering process is different for online and custom products, so please don't complete your online order if you want to combine it with a custom one. Instead, create an account online and add the online tickets to your cart without checkout out. Make sure you've entered your shipping and billing information online and then call Customer Support at 888 771 0809. We'll start the custom product ordering process and finalize the entire order once we have all the information.
Note: If you close and reopen your document or look at a preview of the document, it will appear that the CSV has reverted and your leading zeroes were deleted. However, be assured that is not the case. As long as you were able to see the leading zeros at the time you saved the document, your CSV has the leading zeros. It is safe to upload your CSV and your leading zeroes will be preserved.
Event Programs are the perfect way to keep things running smoothly. You can use them to provide schedules, descriptions, maps, and a catalog of other details that your guests will need, in a handy booklet format they can carry around with them all day. They're a great way to communicate the organization of your event with introductions, steps, and duration of activities.
Event Programs are printed booklets, brochures, catalogs, or pamphlets you can print in advance and provide for the guests at your events. They're versatile and useful and they help you share all the information your attendees could ever need. If you've got lots of information you want everyone to know, Event Programs are an ideal way to share. Use them to clearly lay out the order of activities, list participants, or add special notes about your gathering or organization. They also make cool keepsakes for attendees. Event Programs are the perfect place to express your thanks to anyone who provided promotional items, donated funds, or did volunteer work for your event.

We can also use the artwork from tickets or other printed templates you have ordered from us. Any image you have a legal right to reproduce can be added to your programs.

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.

I am using your instructions to create a page of tickets - the design has been created as a picture so I added a text box to "hold" the mail merge instructions but I keep getting the error message "You cannot include DATA, NEXT, NEXTIF, or SKIPIF fields in comments, headers, footers, footnotes or endnotes." I have not included any of these but I'm wondering if it's because I've attempted to insert it in a text box. Is there an easy way to do this? TIA
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.
We offer standard security microtext printed on the back and is FREE (no charge). The security feature is the TicketPrinting.com logo with security microtext diagonally across. Security microtext is extremely small, and in almost all cases, will not be legible when copied. The security message is printed on the back of the DYO ticket, which means that, if you choose a double sided ticket, you'll want to be careful not to print your image and text on top of it.

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.
