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.


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.
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.
Drag the number, which Publisher defaults to “1,” into place on the ticket. To change the sequence, such as to start with “100” instead of “1,” click the “Page Number” button again and choose “Format Page Numbers.” Click the “Start this section with” radio button and type the new number into the field. Click the “OK” button to have Publisher update the ticket number.
Your raffle might be subject to gaming commission or tax laws. Check with your municipality, state or province, and federal governments to make sure your raffle is legal. These government departments aren’t just enforcers. They are often great resources on how to run a successful fund raising raffle. Raffles are fun! Getting in trouble with the law or tax man is not.
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.

Posters and Banners are meant to be hung, and we use the power of grommets to get the job done! Our vinyl Banners are tape hemmed for a finished look that also provides durability. If your print product is on the smaller side of the spectrum, we'll add a grommet to every corner. For large Banners, you'll have a grommet every two feet. Our indoor Posters, which are printed on Satin Polypropylene Film, also come with grommet mounts.
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.
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.

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 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.
You can leave a line blank on the online template, and that space will remain blank on your finished print product. However, since our templates are standardized and the process is automated, there is no way to add a line of text or to reposition the text without paying for a Custom Ticket order. Just visit our Custom Ticket order page for more information.
The Heat Sensitive Security paper has micro text in green ink on one side, usually the back of the ticket. If you add small text to the back, it might not be readable. If you have a lot of text or an image that covers the whole back of the ticket, it will be printed over the micro text and you will not be able to use the security feature to verify the ticket's authenticity.

We just want to get it right! The proof is a necessary step for any product you order from TicketPrinting.com, including custom orders. You're not just approving the print file: reviewing your proof gives you a chance to make sure that all the details are perfect. You can make sure we've reproduced your image exactly as you like while you also verify quantity, size, pricing, shipping and billing information. If you'd like any changes, the proof email gives you the opportunity to notify us before we start printing your order.


Think small. For the most part, Custom Wristbands can easily be printed with any design: just keep in mind that the printable area is roughly .85" by 7". Our wide, 1" bands allow for a much larger area to customize than other wristbands. Since Tyvek® is not paper, but rather a strong, waterproof, and durable fabric, inkjet printers are the optimal printing technology and your logos and text may seem less bright, and the edges less sharp, than you would expect with a laser printing on high gloss paper. However, the printing is durable and will not smear or rub on the Tyvek® wristband, and your Custom Wristbands can be tailored to match your event's custom promotional material.

If you're looking to dress up your space, such as decorating a bulletin board or a classroom, choose from a variety of colorful accent tickets to use as backgrounds or eye-catching elements to draw attention to important topics. Accent tickets come pre-cut and ready to use. Choose different colors and sizes for added interest. Write or draw on the tickets to use them as nametags or labels or to introduce key classroom concepts in an interesting, colorful way.

We'll create our Event Programs as single fold documents (a single fold refers to one fold, directly in the center of the printed sheet, meaning a single sheet translates into a 4-page Event Program) so 4-page programs will not be bound. Single fold programs are perfect for small events such as music or dance recitals, school plays or concerts, community variety shows, or other short, local events.
The event will set up certain prizes. Raffle tickets are then sold, and the people told to hold them until the raffle is held. Raffle tickets are then drawn randomly, and the holders of the winning tickets get a prize. While organizers can be as creative as they wish, offering bulk purchases of tickets and discounts, the basic rules stay the same. The benefit of holding raffles is that donors enjoy the anticipation of possibly winning a prize, while donating to a charity. This makes raffle tickets one of the most popular ways to earn for a nonprofit.

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.


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.

Indeed, they are! Many customers want to hang their Posters or Banners outside and keep them there for a while, so they're all printed with solvent based, UV stable ink, which is super-durable and can resist UV degradation for 3 to 5 years. When it's printed on vinyl, this UV ink is extra durable and able withstand any moisture or precipitation your climate might throw at it.

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.

Once you've placed your order, it's proof time. Customer Support hands off your specifications to the design team. Our talented graphic professionals will generate and email you an electronic proof by the end of the next business day. Just look it over and, if it meets your needs, email us back to approve! One you've approved the proof and chosen a shipping option, we'll finalize the order by charging your credit card and start processing your tickets.

Having personalized raffle tickets printed can get expensive, especially if you operate a fund-raising operation and must do this often. An alternative to using costly printing services is to use the raffle ticket template. With the raffle ticket template, you save money. The raffle ticket template also gives you complete creative control. Simply by opening a template in Microsoft Word means that can design it yourself by adding both text and images, all from the comfort of your own home.
Our design team can create a Custom Ticket from scratch, incorporating your design ideas as well as any images or logos you may have. They can also use any online template background that you like, design a ticket using artwork that you send us, or combine all of the above. Designing a custom ticket from scratch doesn't cost any more than our other Custom Ticket options.
It depends what the design is for the tickets. But if you set up primary text frames, linked for the area for the numbers, you can create a numbered list with the numbering format you want. Then, just pour in a whole load of paragraph returns that have that numbered list applied. And make sure each numbered paragraph is set to start in the next column.

Our indoor Posters, which are printed on Satin Polypropylene Film, also come with grommet mounts.

The only glitch is that our shipping cost estimator only works with US Zip Codes. To estimate shipping costs outside the US, add the item or items to your shopping cart and begin the check out process. The easiest way is to change the template quantity from the default number to the number of products you need and type in a start number before adding the item to your cart. Once you have entered your shipping address you will be taken to a page listing available shipping options and their prices.


    Numbering raffle tickets can be a rough project to tackle without the right tools. Luckily you can number raffle tickets or any other document or form with a desktop publishing software program you may already own like Microsoft Word, Publisher, Adobe Indesign or CorelDraw or any desktop publishing software that has a mail merge function.  Then all that is needed is a program that can create the mail merge file you need to number your tickets like starting number, ending number, prefix and so on. And for that program we suggest Number-Pro.
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.
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.
Hi - are you creating your own tickets using the instructions on this page? If so, you can of course change the font and everything else in your Word document. If you are using the Raffle Ticket Creator app (app.raffleticketcreator.com) then you can't change the font size ... you'll just need to tinker with the exact words that you are including in order to get them to fit on the page. Hope that helps!
