Can I use a regular desktop printer for raffle ticket numbering? Absolutely!
With desktop publishing software like Adobe InDesign, Microsoft Word, Publisher or any application that allows you to do a "merge" and a stand alone software application like Number-Pro (www.number-pro.com) you can print your own raffle tickets with numbering or any other document you want to be numbered.
The ease of using Number-Pro is that it can be used with any software that allows a file merge. This includes but not limited to:
Lay out as many tickets per page. Number anywhere on the ticket.
Number-Pro is also used to print multi form document like invoices.
This is a great application to have in a small to medium sized print shop as well. If you or your shop does not have the ability to perforate paper and card stock, it can usually be bought at a local wholesale paper supplier or online like perforatedpaper.com
Now raffle ticket numbering is within the capabilities of everyone from the home, do-it-yourselfer, organizations wanting to do fundraising and print shops of all sizes.
