Raffle Ticket Printing
Advancement in technology has made many things really simple and easy. You can go around the world in one day
through your computer screen, shop from the comfort of your home, and get an education without going to a
university. Well these are just three things from the millions of other things that we can do far more easily than
the people who lived in the previous century.
Take raffle ticket printing for example. Who could have thought a century ago that anyone on the planet could
print raffle tickets without setting a foot outside his house? Yes this is entirely possible since you can order
everything online you can print raffle tickets in your home without setting your foot out.
Examples aside, raffle ticket printing has become really easy and if you don’t want to do it on your own you can
order a good printing company to do it for you. Here are a few pros and cons of getting the tickets printed and
printing them yourself so that you can decide what you want to do.
If you are arranging a raffle you need to get some information before you get started with the printing. You
have to be sure what exactly you want on the raffle ticket. You need to have the date of the event, the venue, the
prize or prizes etc. When you have the complete information you can move to the next step.
Let’s consider the scenario that you are outsourcing the raffle ticket printing. In that case you have to find a
reliable printing company and ask them for a sample. You have to be very clear in instructing them in what you want
and provide all the information in writing. When you are ordering Raffle ticket printing make sure that you order
in advance so that the printed tickets can be delivered to you well within time. Though, good companies don’t make
mistakes yet you always have to leave enough time that if anything goes wrong, amends can be made.
The Pros are that you will not have to do anything yourself and just order and receive the tickets. You will not
have to worry about the correct numbering of the tickets. The cons are that you may have to pay a little more
and at times you might not get exactly what you want in the price range you have.
Now if you are planning on printing your own raffle tickets you need to be prepared for several things. Not only
will you need the proper software for raffle ticket printing but also some other equipment necessary for giving the
final form to the tickets. The first thing you will need after a computer and a reliable printer is a Good soft
ware. Then you will have to get paper for printing tickets. You don’t need to get the top quality paper and spend a
lot of money on it. You can get a medium quality paper. It will do well.
The interesting thing is that you can even find free printable raffle tickets online. You just have to find the
website and print the tickets. Printable raffle tickets are the best option if you have very little time and need
to get things done in a hurry.
But if you want to print raffle tickets on your own, the point is to create tickets as you want. So the best way
is to take a look at the raffle ticket templates that are available and then get some ideas. After that you can
create your own template in the software. Make sure that the software you have takes care of the numbering of the
raffle tickets since numbering is very important. If you mess up the numbering of the tickets, the whole raffle can
end up in chaos, with many unhappy people.
Raffle tickets can be printing on both side of the paper or one. It is up to you what design you want to use.
You can use colored paper for printing too. You can use a particular picture or a quotation that is relevant to
your cause. If the raffle is for fundraising then you should mention on the ticket where the money would be going
and to what good it would be used. The size of the ticket is also your own choice. You can make print two raffle
tickets on an A4 size paper or you can get out 8 tickets from the same sheet.
Once you have the raffle tickets printed and ready you will need a paper perforator to perforate the tickets and
a sharp knife to separate the tickets. After that you can stack them up and staple them in little booklets for ease
of use. The next step is selling these raffle tickets. You can do door to door selling and the best idea is to
target the prominent people of your community like the Father of your local church, the school Principal, the
police officers etc.
You can persuade these people that the money is going to be used for the well being of the community and once
they buy the tickets you can ask them to request their family and friends to buy the tickets too. In this way you
will be able to sell a lot of tickets easily. People enjoy the idea of investing a little money if they see that
there is a chance of winning something and that is the whole point of raffles.
