There is a good chance that the digital printer that you will use, has a cut and stack imposition method. This is a method that replicates Peter’s description, except it is done at the RIP and automatically. If this is the case, all you would need to do is supply a file from your data merge (20,000 single pages), and the imposition is taken for you.
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?
For a ‘small society lottery’ (tickets sold in advance), tickets must show the name of the promoting society (and the purpose of the lottery), the ticket price, the name and address of the organiser and the date of the draw.
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.
This simple raffle ticket design made of two parts. Top part (ticket) is very basic, and the space is limited to the name of your raffle event. Bottom part (coupon) is for the participants who do not need to fill in their information (name, address and phone number).
Add a page number to it (if you are using labels or cards each is a logical “page”) with Format, Page, Insert Page Number. Insert, Close. This places a [PgNumDisp] code on the label (visible in the Reveal Codes window); you should see a “1” on the label at the insertion point. You can adjust the starting number with the Value/Adjust button, or you can adjust it after the macro is finished (see #5 below).

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!

The event will set up certain prizes. Raffle tickets are then sold, and the people told to hold them until the raffle is held. Raffle tickets are then drawn randomly, and the holders of the winning tickets get a prize. While organizers can be as creative as they wish, offering bulk purchases of tickets and discounts, the basic rules stay the same. The benefit of holding raffles is that donors enjoy the anticipation of possibly winning a prize, while donating to a charity. This makes raffle tickets one of the most popular ways to earn for a nonprofit.

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.
