Get a suitable type and amount of paper. Consider the paper you’ll be using for the raffle tickets. If you just need very basic, utilitarian raffle tickets, regular printing paper will do just fine. If you want something that leaves a more professional impression, consider buying a heavier weight paper, or a coloured material instead of the standard plain white.
If the numbers appear to be cut off, adjust the formatting and layout of your publication. For example, you may need to increase the size of the text box that contains the data field for your tracking number, or you might need to decrease the font size of the data field.
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.
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.
Supermarkets also offer a good avenue for the sale of raffle tickets. Most of them normally allow one to sell the raffle tickets just close to the exit. It is good venue since people will opt to spend their loose change to get the raffle tickets.
17. On the Print Preview screen, click the Imposition Layout tool, and type values for the number of rows and columns on the property bar, depending on how many images horizontally and vertically you want to have on the page. In this example, there are two columns and three rows.
2. At this point you need to check the selected ticket template thoroughly for any pre existing numbers. Many of the Word templates in the Microsoft Publisher come with numbers. If you wish to facilitate numbering then you can click on the number box or else you can give delete option to commence your own numbering series.
If you’d rather make your tickets from scratch, take advantage of Publisher’s “Insert” tab to add your own images or draw from the “Shapes” collection. Add the numbers in the same way, starting with Step 3.

Once you’re finished with the design, go to the “Mailings” ribbon to start the mail merge. You’ll see that the “Update Labels” is grayed out. Change that by clicking on Start Mail Merge > Labels > Cancel.
I have been through this exact scenario. It’s a pain unless you can impose them for north-south stacking and cutting. I ended up having a local printer impose my single-page files, then send me a print quality PDF at my desired page size, then we printed them, and sent them back to the printer to cut. Worked like a charm and I didn’t week trying to make it work.
After the grid of numbers is done, you need to insert a new row at the top to hold the field labels (Stack 1, stack 2, stack 3… or whatever) and then save as .csv or tab delimited text to use as the Data Source file for the merge.
Family and friends: Start close to home. People who know you, and like you, are more likely to buy from you. Fundraiser Insight says you should sell “face-to-face because it’s harder to turn someone down when they’re standing right in front of you.”
On a fax receipt, the airline code and ticket number is located in the middle of the page. In this example, you would enter 2100075657 in the ticket number box. The 001 is already provided to the left of the box if American Airlines is selected as the airline flown. Enter the 3-digit airline code preceding the ticket number if any other airline is selected.
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!
I also use printer bench pro…we do 12 coupons up on 11×17, and print the background into a variable data master file and then select this master when printing out of PBP and its easy cheezy….now if they would just write the software for a mac
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!
