Printing Tickets - Creating the Print File

Set Ticket From number, Books and Tickets per Book from the dropdowns and click Printing Printing to display the Print Settings Dialog and create a print file, then print tickets in batches from this saved file. Open the file and select File/Print from the Menu to print.

Demo Print File Open this Demo Print File to see the format.

Page sequence Pages are assembled from the printer in correct sequence for stapling, perforating and separating into books. 4 tickets are printed per page, with a cover page every 11th page (if 10 tickets per book) Separate pages into book sets, staple the ends on the 4 marks, fold the covers page back, use a sewing machine (no thread!) to perforate the stub line, then use a guillotine (or scissors) to cut the horizontal lines for books.

Printer Prints Face Down? If the pages exit your printer printed side down, select Printer Prints Face Down in the Printing dialog, to correctly sequence the pages as they exit the printer, for stapling, perforating and cutting into books.

The tickets should fit on both Letter and A4 sized paper (or larger). If you use Letter, and the bottom of the page is cropped, try setting the Printer Page Size to A4 (but still use Letter). Also, ensure the printer scale is set to 100% (not 'Shrink To Fit') and any margins are set as low as possible.

Click OK to name and save the Print File to your computer. The file may take a minute or two to create, with progress displayed. When finished, click Open Print File to open the print file in IE and inspect the tickets and covers. From this file, opened in IE, you can print, or re-print in batches of pages. (from page ... to page ...)

Demo Print File It's a good idea to create your print file with more Books than you initially think you'll need. You can then easily print more Tickets if needed later, without having to re-create the print file with the extra Books.

Tip If you're printing a large numberof tickets, consider creating multiple (consecutive) print files. Then you can delegate files to different people to print in batches.
