Number-Pro makes numbering raffle tickets and forms easy using your desktop publishing software like Indesign, Microsoft Word and Publisher and Corel Draw. Number Pro creates a data merge file based on your numbering requirements that can easily be integrated into the desktop publishing software that allows for printing directly to your small business or home printer.
Click Print Preview to check the settings. (Publisher 2010 and 2013 does this automatically.) The ticket numbers should increase by one (Figure K) as they do in the Excel sheet. Publisher will generate enough pages to accommodate your entire list of values in Excel.
Design and order your tickets. Once you’ve chosen a manufacturer and are in contact with them, it will come time to solidify the specifics of your order. Some of the bigger outlets will come with pre-made ticket designs you can buy more cheaply. Custom orders may cost more, but you’ll have a ticket with a specific look for your event. Make sure to give the manufacturer all the information they require. This may include:
Tip: If your data source contains records that share the same information, and there are ten or fewer unique values in the column, you can filter by specific information. For example, if there are multiple records that list Australia as the country/region, you can filter on Australia.
it can be done with almost any software that has print merge function (we use corel draw a lot for such jobs). you create a excel file with numbers, and merge them into design. once you learn it it is easy and fast.
Meet with the organizing committee and get a plan in place. Discuss the where the raffle should be held, why it’s being done, and where the proceeds go. You also need to discuss which prize or prizes you are giving away.Draw up a timeline. Plot out when you are to sell tickets and for how long and when the draw will be.

Use the navigator on the right hand side and choose Edit All to make changes to all your tickets, such as changing the overall text style and size. Choose Edit One to make changes to individual tickets.
Sounds like you have put a “Next Record” field after the final ticket on each page. Because the final ticket is at the end of the page, the number will increment automatically at the end of a page. If you put a ‘Next’ field there too, you’ll jump two numbers. This issue is mentioned in Step 5 above, but maybe I should make it clearer.
– Include any legal wording your local regulations require (in the UK, you’ll probably need a license from your local council, and include details of that on the raffle ticket. More about that here.)
It is recommended that you provide the time and venue of the show unless you have a fixed location for the movies. By providing these details you will save yourself the stress of having to persuade watchers to pick up the movie tickets.
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.
A raffle is a gambling competition in which people obtain numbered tickets, each ticket having the chance of winning a prize. At a set time, the winners are drawn from a container holding a copy of every number. The drawn tickets are checked against a collection of prizes with numbers

I use a little program called “Number It” I purchased on E-bay a couple of years ago. It will print the ticket (from bmp file) and number on the Canon 3200 in one pass. BW or Color. Nice little program and well worth the $50-80 price.
All the remaining pages should pop off just how you want it. If you continue to have issues and want me to look at it you can pm me a link to the file and i’ll steer you in the right direction. You are 95% of the way there.
3. Consequently, select the Insert option and then move your cursor over the Draw Text Box choice and click it. Wait till your cursor symbol becomes a plus mark. Then hit on the ticket and pull to sketch a tiny box to add the number sequences.
I’m trying to skip a couple numbers in the sequence. Is there an easy way to do that? I’m building an auction catalog with over 830 items but some of them aren’t going to be listed in the catalog. Is it just easier to restart numbering at that point? Thank you!
We had some computer crashes here. Long story short I did a restore and then of course my Outlook is asking me to activate. I had purchased an 2013 addition of Office on line a few years ago.When it a… read more
This probably won’t get to you before I need to solve my issue but I am having the following issues using Mac Word 2011- starts at 2 instead of 1, and then skips numbers every new page, i.e. 5 tickets/page numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 -no 7- next page starts 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 – no 13- all the way through to 1300. This ends up eliminating 900+ tickets. Not sure if others have had this issue as well- I can’t seem to find anything online.
Well, you could do it with two lists (using the List feature). Or perhaps you could do it with cross-references, like this: http://indesignsecrets.com/synchronize-text-in-more-than-one-place-in-an-indesign-document.php
At this time, decide how many tickets you want to print. You can choose All and print 5,000 or you can choose to print only a certain amount. For instance, you may want to print records 1 to 500 to print only 500 tickets. If you need to print more tickets later, you’ll want to print records 501 to 1,000 to print another 500 tickets.
Now you’re done. Click OK and you should see the number appear in the text frame. To make more numbers, just duplicate this frame. Every time you make a new frame, InDesign increments the number automatically. Note that in the following image, the frames are not threaded together:
It appeared designed for variable numbers in one place. My customer needed her tickets numbered in two places, on the ticket and on the http://ringringpromotions.org Because she needs them tomorrow there is no time to send them out to be numbered manually. I’ll keep watching this space for more info. Thanks folks.
Rather, I was just admitting that I had no idea why someone using CS3 would not see the dialog boxes as they are shown above. If you’re using CS2, they would be significantly different. But the second part of the tip (where I show the numbering dialog boxes) relies on CS3 or later. If you are using CS3 or CS4 and you don’t see that dialog box, feel free to email me at david [at] indesignsecrets [dot] com and send me a screen shot of what you are seeing. The script that Mike referred to worked very well with CS2 and was fairly easy to extend to doing counterfoil numbers as well, but doesn’t seem to work with CS3. I have thrown together a small online script to generate the contents of a data source file to do ticket numbering through the normal CS3 InDesign data merge routine.
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.
Create a new document in Word, and set up one ticket to occupy about one quarter of the page. Just use tabs and line breaks to format the text, don’t use text boxes. And leave some space to put the ticket numbers in later. You might end up with something like this:
The script sets the numbering of multiple gang up tickets so that after cutting the tickets do not need recollating to put back into order (like the CS2 script) but also does counterfoil numbers, prefixes, suffixes, leading zeros and output of pages in reverse order for ‘face up’ printing. The script is. Now I’m feeling rather dumb and frustrated. I just spent the last couple of hour numbering the tickets using keyboard shortcuts to detach the master and substitute numbers. Did 500 tickets this way. Corel crashed repeatedly on my production person today while he was trying to number them using the plug-in. I couldn’t figure out how to make Mike’s script work.
Fourth, distribute the raffle tickets. Be sure to have ticket holders write their information on the half of the ticket meant for this purpose then drop the tickets into a container. When it is time for the drawing, pull out a ticket and read the number to determine a winner.
