Note: Keep in mind that what you are saving is not the set of coupons or gift certificates that you have printed. Rather, you are saving the publication with its connection to your data source and its placeholder fields. By saving the publication, you can quickly create another set of coupons or gift certificates when the need arises. The publication maintains the link to the data source that you connected it to so that you can jump ahead to the previewing step.
The Fundraising Authority advises to offer several payment options because a lot of people pay with debit and credit cards these days, so they sometimes don’t carry cash at all. Also, wherever you are, be visible! Use signs and other attractive displays to help ensure everyone sees you.
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!
Add unique numbers to gift certificates By using a unique number on each certificate, you can track when gift certificates are redeemed, by whom, and for what product or service. In addition, by adding unique tracking numbers, you can ensure that the gift certificates are not duplicated or redeemed more than once.
Do you know of any other good raffle ticket templates for Word? Got some tips on making great tickets? How about things you’ve done to boost ticket sales? We’d love to hear about them. Helping people make use of technology to help others is a worthy goal.
Receive and unpack your tickets. The tickets normally come wrapped coil and will most likely be perforated. You should leave the coil wrapped until it comes time to sell the tickets so you don’t lose any.
Now it’s time to edit all the text to check for the exact date, rewards and prizes. You can modify or delete whatever is not applicable. Care has to taken to highlight significant words in the text of the template. There are even options to change the style and size of the font of your characters.
Thank you for these clear instructions. I have had the same problem as Mommy Vaughan and followed the suggestion. However, on re-opening the Word document, I have the dialogue box Invalid Merge Field. I have to use Task Manager to close down Word. I am using Word 2010. Maybe that is part or all of the problem. Any ideas please? I need to sort this by tomorrow night to print them on Monday!
you need to put in a heading row. just do A B C D…etc and make another row directly below it that is A1 A2 A3 etc for dummy numbers. That 2nd row can be your first sheet and let what I affectionately refer to as http://sl-inworld.com do his/her setup.
10. Back in the document, select your dummy number in the first ticket. Click the button ‘Insert Merge Field,’ then select the one entry in the drop-down menu, which will be the first number from your spreadsheet.
Open your Layers window. If it is not already open, open it by going to (Window > Layers). Rename the layer with the placed pdf ‘Background’ and then create a new layer and name it ‘Numbering’. Lock the ‘Background’ layer. Then select the ‘Numbering’ Layer.
Of course, there are third-party solutions that are available for creating sequentially numbered labels. One that comes highly recommended by several WordTips subscribers is Bates Labels from Payne Consulting (http://www.payneconsulting.com). This free Word template allows you to easily create as many labels as you need for a specific purpose.
I am trying to create raffle tickets, 4 on a page with only a number on the stub. My problem is when I get to the print preview and change it to “multiple pages per sheet” it is just changing the number on the next page and not on the next ticket. I followed all the directions on adding the number to each ticket from the merge document (of course all the step by step information I can find is only for 2007 and NOT 2013 so guessing there is something wrong with what I am doing). When I go into the print screen it is also changing my paper from 8 1/2 x 11 to 11 x 17 and putting 8 on the page.
I’m struggling with this as well. I tried creating a .txt file of sequential numbers 1-99 from Excel and brought it in as a datamerge. My tickets are 8″x3″, 3-up, but when I did the merge, InDesign added 3,416 pages. Where the Hell is THAT coming from?? Any clue what I’m doing wrong? I’m using a tutorial that is using CS5, but I don’t see how that has anything to do with all those bloody pages.
Create variable data projects of all types. Design tickets, forms, labels or any document that requires imported data, serial numbering, text, or graphics. Barcode static and imported data. Works with most desktop, label, ticket and commercial
On a master page, create a text box. rightclick/insert special character/markers/current page number (also under the type menu). Have your ticket image on the master page too, then just create x number pages for x number of tickets.
Then just assign each of the letters to where you want in the layout. You will see <> <> in each of the spots where the letters are. when you do you merge make sure that you have the page as the sheet size that you are using and do not use multiple records per sheet.
Tombolas are often run at non-commercial events, such as school fetes, and so normally offered as a type of lottery called an ‘incidental non-commercial lottery’ under the Gambling Act 2005. Although there are other rules for this type of lottery, the only requirements regarding tickets are that they are sold at the place where the event is held, while the event is taking place. Under the Act there is no reference to ticket pricing so it is acceptable to, for example, charge 50p for one ticket, £1 for three tickets. Similarly, if during the latter stages of the event there were still prizes left, there are no restrictions on reducing prices of tickets further in order to sell them.
I left the office and it was at around 83% done and it had taken 2 hours to get there. I’m going to have to set these up a few times a year for events and stuff like that and I need a better flow for any type of setup (4up, 3up, whatever up etc.).
Most changes you make to the top ticket are automatically made on all the other tickets, too. No tiring copying and pasting needed. The template shows just 5 tickets, but once you have them looking the way you want, just multiply them using copy and paste.
