It appeared designed for variable numbers in one place. My customer needed her tickets numbered in two places, on the ticket and on the stub. 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.
13. Click ‘Finish & Merge.’ Choose ‘Edit Individual Documents,’ then select ‘All’ in the ‘Merge to New Document’ box. A new document will open showing every single set of raffle tickets, each with its own number. Check over the document to be sure everything looks right. Alter the page margins if necessary.
The four templates with automatic serial numbering are quite nice and one of them will most likely be suitable for your needs. You can edit them as well. If you’re going to do that, save the original template separately. Doing so will give you a fresh template, in case you need one.
My quick process involves setting up a row of plaques with a01, a02, a03, thru a09. Then copy the plaques to the clipboard. Run the REPLACE TEXT feature to replace “a” with “1”. Move row down and paste clipboard back into page. Run REPLACE TEXT to replace “a” with “2”. Repeat until I get all the numbers. It’s faster than manually typing the numbers in but I know there’s go to be someway of automating the process.
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.
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:
At this point of time, do not forget to bring up to date the series of numbers of tickets already copied. This can be achieved by just highlighting the number and hitting on the right side of the mouse. The word document will let down a drop-down menu that will provide you all the necessary options to revise and keep up to date the field.
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.
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:
Click Numbering in the Paragraph group. In Word 2003, Numbering is on the Formatting toolbar. At this point, you have a one-column table with one hundred rows displaying a sequential list of 1 to 100.
Grocery stores: A folding table and a couple of colorful posters are all you need to set up an attractive display outside of a grocery store or supermarket. People are going inside sequential numbering in word shop, so they have money.
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.
My tickets only printed two per page, in the first and third spits of the letter sized page. They did print properly/sequentially ordered however. Any suggestions as to how to get four tickets per page?
Number-Pro can be used to create unlimited amounts of the numbering mail merge file you need. This is great for small print shops, non profit organizations that do there own tickets. Using your own home or office printer you can number your own raffle tickets.
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.
