Click on Update Labels in the “Mailing” ribbon, and this will roll out the formatting to all the cells. You can click “Preview Results” to see what the tickets will look like when printed, and you can navigate pages and tickets by using Next Record, Last Record, Previous Record, or First Record.
Scissors aren’t recommended for cutting if you’re selling your tickets. You probably won’t get a straight cut out of them. Instead, a ruler and a craft precision knife can get you an even cut that looks like it was done professionally.

Thank you so much for this! These instructions were perfect and clear, and I got it all done, except when I go to print. It prints out 1 per page. I have Word 2007, and tried printing out on letter size with 4 per page, but then it prints them all very tiny in the corners. Can you help me? Thanks 🙂
You’ll need to merge two documents: the Publisher document, or ticket, and an Excel workbook that contains the numbers you want to use to number those tickets. Please don’t let the term mail merge intimidate you. Merging a Publisher document to generate http://sl-inworld.com numbers is easy.
Thanks I have my word ticket page set up with the code you gave me. Thank you in advance. I need to set up the mail merge so I can print blocks of tickets off as I need them. How do I go about setting this up? Do I have to have a stub, ticket format like the original ticket format?
The truth is that creating event tickets are quite unfussy, undemanding and unproblematic. One of the effective methods for crafting numbered tickets for events is to rummage around for pre existing Word templates which can be adapted, customized and modified to suit your needs.
This can be done digitally as well. Not all digital print shops can do it, but any decent one can (so not Kinko’s). I assume they will handle the cutting as well, so they can determine the best way to arrange the numbers.
GREAT tip with lots of uses! Thank you. This will save me hours of work on some tickets I’m designing. However, I also need to set up table tents that have numbers on them. They’re 2-up, and are folded, so each number needs to appear twice on the same page. In short, I want a page with 1/1 and 2/2, and I’m getting 1/2 and 3/4. Am I missing an obvious fix? Thank you.
Was very easy to use and the tickets looked great. Unfortunately, when I went to print them, there is a fee. I am doing this for a non-profit group and I personally do not have the funds to do this. Maybe something before we get to the print page would make for a lot less frustration which generated negative feedback. The tickets look great otherwise and was very easy to do.
Now Option/Alt-click on the Autonumbering button in the Control panel (or choose Bullets and Numbering from the Control panel flyout menu) and choose the list you created in the Lists pop-up menu. You might want to adjust the other settings to match this:
If you are making the tickets ten-up you can put everything on a master page. Make the ticket number [Page Number][digit 0–9] then fill with pages based on that master. Page 1 will be tickets 10–19, page 29 will be tickets 290–299, etc.
Highlight your placeholder. Again, Remember, for Raffle tickets, you will have two placeholders. One for the ticket itself, and the other which is for the piece that is given to the individual who purchases the raffle ticket. This is where you want your sequential numbers to appear on your ticket.
Subsequently you have to select the template named Raffle tickets 6 per page. Microsoft Word will make available a preview of the chosen template and then inquires whether you wish to download the particular template. Now choose the option to download. Consequently your current word document gets replaced with the template of raffle ticket which is ready to undergo editing in your hand.
CS2 (or earlier) “Cheesy” Numbering 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. 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. To ensure each number fills its own text frame, select the whole story (Command/Ctrl-A), open the Keep Options (Command/Ctrl-Option/Alt-K) and choose In Next Frame from the Start Paragraph pop-up menu.
When you have Microsoft Publisher at your hand, you need not worry about running to stores to explore and buy tickets for organizing company day outs, vacation give away or a business board meeting. Microsoft Publisher provides you with several Word templates from which you can create event tickets with ease and skill. It even includes the fundamental chronological ordering required for raffles .once you get the ruse of setting up numbers in the ticket series, you can commence numbering in your own style.
Example: Quant. Y: 10 Space: 5 so the script places 15 copies of the object(s) (including the master-object(s) itself) in the horizontal, 10 copies in the vertical on the sheet or whereever you want them.
To save your design, click the Save button. In the pop-up window, create a file name and save to either your free MyAvery online account or to your computer. To go back and open your saved projects, just go to avery.com/print.
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.
One of my templates is only $25 so for any shop that just wants to boost production on a small item that doesn’t really make much profit, it’s a good solution and all the work is already done for them.
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.

Zoom into the tickets where you have placed the text for the numbering and click on the data merge palette. This should be open already since we already called in the data file in Step 11. Place the text cursor behind the last letter of your text. Then click on the text data file (100.txt) in the Data Merge Palette.
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.
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.
I used the CS3 directions to number 500 tickets both at the top and bottom of each ticket 4 up on a page. This method worked great and really didn’t take very long at all. I dudplicated several spreads at a time to create my 125 pages of tickets ( 4up = a total of 500 numbered tickets). Thanks so much for the help!
If you place multiple frames on one page and apply the same numbering style, InDesign will count not be placement but order of creation. That is the reason why I get this weird order on the picture above.
In this example, I will create a set of plates that will be put on each classroom door in a local high school. All plates will have the same logo, but each plate will have a different classroom number and subject.
Looks like it works only for one line message, and does not work if my label contains 2 lines, e.g. the 1st line says Trade Show items, the 2nd line says carton number 1 of 30; 2 of 30. Also can I centre it vertically?
Fill in the information. Much like making your tickets by hand, you’ll need to input information for the tickets. Because you’re doing it via computer, it will be faster to make the tickets consistent. Write in the basic information into the template you’re using. The individual ticket number can be either written in or sequenced via a program like Microsoft Publisher. Although specifics will vary between raffle events, here are some things you’ll absolutely want on each ticket:
You can now give your event tickets, whether it is for fundraising, party or for charity performance, a professional and a special look by availing the service of MicroSoft Publisher that comes along with the Microsoft Office Suite .It provides you with existing Word templates which befits all events, instances, functions and occasions.
Good morning! Directions are clear for sure but when i go to merge the first ticket is one but the second number on the raffle ticket is two. i have four raffle tickets per page the first three are messed up but the forth is correct all the way down to 500. Any ideas? i have tried with a header and without a header. i even made the first number with a formula. it does work with out putting next record but like you said it is four tickets with the same number and that would use a ton of ink. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
