How to Create Tickets With Successive Numbers


Tickets are often given successive numbers to set them apart and keep track of the number sold. Successive, or consecutive, numbers follow one after the other in order. Consecutive numbering systems account for every ticket created. Individual tickets are sometimes made with a set of matching numbers on the main ticket and stub. Numbered tickets are easier to track and harder for customers to counterfeit. Successively numbered tickets can be used to give away door prizes or raffle items. Give out customized and numbered tickets instead of invitations for your next gathering.

Things You'll Need

  • Card stock (110 pound)
  • Ruler
  • Permanent markers
  • Scissors
  • Rotary cutter with perforating blade (optional)
  • Outline the dimensions of the tickets on card stock using markers and a ruler. Fit as many tickets or ticket and stub combination outlines onto the page as possible.

  • Copy any important information about the event you want to include on each ticket. Leave at least a ½-inch of space at one side of each ticket for the successive numbers.

  • Write any random six- to eight-digit number in the blank ½-inch space at the side of the first ticket. Increase the digit by one and write the new, higher number on the next ticket.

  • Add a successive number to each of the tickets. Record the numbers on the first and last ticket numbered. Subtract the number on the first ticket from the number on the last ticket to determine the total number of tickets made.

  • Cut the individual tickets out of the card stock sheet. Ticket and stub connections can be perforated with a rotary cutter that has been fitted with a perforating blade.

Tips & Warnings

  • Add signatures or stamps to tickets so they are even more difficult to duplicate.
