Standard Raffle Ticket Paper
Raffle tickets are available in virtually any type of paper, however, our standard, off-the-shelf paper of choice for blank raffle ticket stock is 67 lb Vellum Bristol card stock (for pastel
colors) and 65 lb Opaque (for bright colors such as fuchsia and electric yellow).
These paper choices print well using both inkjet and laserjet printers, are sufficiently heavy enough for normal
ticket handling and are cost effective.

How Tickets Are Perforated
All of our raffle ticket stock is perforated between ticket portions and tear off stubs at the standard rate of 12 tpi (i.e., teeth per inch). This has proven to be the most suitable rate of
perforation so that the tear
off stub does not separate too easily, while rendering the whole ticket durable enough under normal use.
The perforation between the tickets themselves, (that is, how they are separated from each other on the overall sheet of paper) is micro perforated at the rate of 40 tpi. This rate of perforation assures that the tickets can be separated neatly and easily prior to distribution, while staying
together under normal printer handling.
(For more information about perforating, visit our About Perforating page.)
One noteworthy addition to our raffle ticket lineup is the 5-up, 1 stub format. There is a 1/2" micro-perforated border along the perimeter of the entire
ticket sheet. Most of
today's laserjet and inkjet printers do not permit software to print to within 1/4" of the edge of paper. The 1/2" border area forces your printer into "thinking" that the paper is
than it is, effectively enabling you to print edge-to-edge using your regular printer.
