There’s an old Steve Martin joke about how to make a million dollars which starts, “First, get a million dollars…” That’s the key to this trick, too: First, get a bunch of numbers. Here’s a file with 1,197 numbers in it. Now import or paste those numbers into a thread so that the numbers appear in the right place. If you need two matching numbers, just import it twice.
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.
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.
This depends. The standard font styles, sizes, colors, and sizes available for each template are preset: that's just another way that online ticket templates save you money. They can't be changed online because the ordering process is automated, which keeps our prices low. But, you can always change an online template into a custom order. For a little extra money, we'll create the perfect ticket for your needs. Need a price estimate? Please call Customer Support at 888 771 0809.
Tyvek® is comfortable to wear, can resist repetitive folding and flexing, and is inexpensive to purchase in large quantities. These wristbands are quickly secured on a patron's wrist, eliminating potential traffic jams as people line up to get into your event. A wristband will last well beyond the length of your event, even if it gets wet! All our Tyvek® Wristbands are also recyclable, as polyethylene is similar to plastic bottles. Visit the Dupont™ site for more information on recycling.
Raffle ticket printing is a tried-and-true method of raising money. People love the chance to win and feel good about being able to contribute through raffles. To get the most out of your raffle, make sure you print tickets in advance of your event and start selling your raffle tickets early. If you’re planning an event, you can sell attendance tickets at the same time that you offer raffle tickets.
Absolutely! Almost anything you print on a Large Format Posters can be easily printed to match your Event Tickets, as well as pretty much any of our other print products. The reverse is true as well: Most of the designs you will find on our ticket templates for Event Tickets, Raffle Tickets, Invitations, and other event collateral, can be printed as a Large Format Poster or Banner, in any size. If the template design cannot be enlarged for a Large Format Poster or Banner, we can create one that will match the theme and look. Customer support (888.771.0809) can provide you with more details on either option.
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.
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.
Yes, we can! If your original is an 8.5" x 11" or 11" x 17" file with high resolution, we're happy to enlarge your images. Remember that your finished prints may differ slightly from our standard sizes if we have to make adjustments to keep the final product proportional. But don't worry! If exact sizing is and issue, just contact us and we'll do our best to accommodate.
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.
It’s best to use something other than general copy paper when printing raffle tickets. Heavier weight paper, or even card stock, could be a better choice. Not only does it look more professional, but the tickets will tear off more easily along the perforation. Choose paper colors on the lighter end of the spectrum so that the template design shows up clearly when printed.
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!

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?

Not if you're printing digitally, and we are! We'll print as many colors as you like and it won't cost any more than printing one color. Black ink is less expensive than colored ink, so black and white tickets are less expensive than colored tickets, but once you've chosen color tickets, go ahead and print rainbows if you like! It won't cost any extra.
Having your event tickets professionally printed for your special occasion can add a sense of authenticity and exclusivity. Admission tickets can include the date and time of the event, the address, your company’s logo, and even special promotional offers. These vouchers can be printed in spot PMS colors or full color on one side or both. There is also the option to add a perforation on the side or have the tickets numbered to help keep track of how many people attend your gathering.
You've probably seen these narrow paper or plastic bracelets at clubs, festivals, and big, crowded events. Our Event Wristbands are synthetic fabric bracelets most commonly used to keep your event secure. They are made from lightweight and durable Tyvek® material that will last as long as your event. Event Wristbands help your event staff makes quick visual identification of your patrons. It's easy to customize wristbands any way you want.
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.
There is very simple solution that we use and that is to lay out the sheet say 6 up on a A4 sheet as a master page and in document setup set the number of pages to 1,000 if that is the amount you require. Put a page number on each ticket on the page and although they will all have the same number on each page, we put the the first two letters of the customers business name before each number followed by the letters of the alphabet so it then reads for example BT1A, BT2A, BT3A, BT1B, BT2B, BT2C and so on as each page is printed.
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.
You don’t have to be a born salesperson to move all your tickets, but the better your sales tactics, the more successful you’ll probably be. Peter Kajanzy teaches how to crush a sale with pro techniques. One bit of advice he offers: When people ask for the price, instead of doing a complex breakdown of one for $2, three for $5, and so on, go straight to “You can buy five tickets for $8.”
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.
Of course! After you've decided upon your design, placed your order, and provided us with any necessary files, we'll generate a digital proof for you. It should appear in your inbox 1 business day after you place your order. We never print anything until you're satisfied with the proof, so you'll need to approve your electronically sent proof before we begin processing.
Creating numbered tickets in Word can seem difficult or even impossible if you are not familiar with all the capabilities of the Word program. If you have tried going to the Word template section and have been unsuccessful or frustrated with all the options and questions, there is an easier way.
