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.
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).
No way! Economy Stickers save you money because they're printed on and with materials that don't have to stand up to the elements. Otherwise, you won't see a difference in print quality. They're still sharp, beautiful, and high resolution. Your Economy Stickers are printed with our state of the art digital printing process on 50 pound high gloss laser label media. Economy Stickers may be very inexpensive, but that doesn't stop them from being high quality, durable, and professional looking.
Numbered Ticket Printing is possible for digital printing. The ticket can be printed in full or single color for both front and back side, on a 100 lb. paper stock with gloss or matte coating. The perforation on the ticket is optional. Standard sizes available for ticket printing are 1.75" x 5.5", 2 x 7", and 2 x 11". Custom sizes are also offered.
Our Design Your Own barcodes use code 93; you will need a device that reads to that standard to scan them. You'll also want to make sure that you don't stretch or distort the barcode while you design the rest of your ticket. If you resize it, make sure it stays proportional, or it won't scan. Make sure the area behind the barcode is white, with nothing else printed there. If there is color or text behind the barcode, it won't scan either.
Vinyl Wristbands are made in a broad range of materials, one of which is Tyvek®.

Neighborhood businesses: The shops and stores in your own community are great places to start selling your raffle tickets. These are locales you frequent, where you know the owners and are able talk to them while you’re there. The more familiar you are to them, the more likely they’ll support your fundraising efforts and will be willing provide a selling spot for you.
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.
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.
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)
