Let Canva’s amazing templates and drag-and-drop design tools help you create raffle tickets people will queue up for
Raffles are not only a great way to get funding for your cause, your participants also get to go home with awesome prizes — it’s a win-win situation! But, fundraising is hard and demanding enough, add designing raffle tickets to it and you can quickly get overwhelmed. We hear you! With Canva, you can design awesome raffle tickets even with little to no design experience and without having to shell out a large sum — you can keep that to aid your cause!
The secret lies in Canva’s collection of amazing raffle ticket templates created by our awesome professional designers. From there, it’s a matter of choosing your favorite ticket template then customizing it to perfection. Afterwards, download your design or share it online to drum up more attention for your cause.
Open up a new page in Canva on your phone or laptop. Search for the “Raffle ticket” design type and either start designing from scratch or choose a ready-made template.
Need a boost of inspiration? Find raffle ticket templates for every theme. Use the search tool to filter by color, style or layout. Click on your favorite template to make it yours.
Use the drag-and-drop tool to move ingredients onto your page. Add icons, stickers, gradients, shapes, lines and other graphics. Tweak the background, color scheme and font style to suit your needs.
Want to add your own twist? Upload your own artwork, images or branding elements. Mix and match elements from different templates. Keep experimenting until it feels done.
Save your raffle tickets as JPGs, PNGs or print-ready PDFs. Share online or order shiny new copies through Canva Print.
If your organization often holds fundraisers, you probably won’t want to start your design from scratch. Every design you create in Canva can be re-opened and edited as many times as you like. You won’t need to hire a graphic designer to make small changes such as editing details like date, venue and event title. Simply make the changes to your original design and download it again.
You can choose to save your design as a print-ready PDF, high-res PNG image file, or a web-optimized JPEG file perfect for sharing online.
Canva’s drag and drop design features makes it easy to add your organization’s brand assets like logos and colors easily. Simply go to the uploads pane and choose a JPEG, PNG or SVG version of your logo to add to your design. Drag your logo to where it needs to be and resize by clicking or dragging on its edges. Change the template color scheme to your brand palette by clicking the color tool on the Canva toolbar. Pick the correct hue from the color wheel or input your color hexcode into the box.
Canva Pro users have the option to build their Brand Kit in Canva which stores their brand assets like logos, palettes and even custom fonts, ready to be applied to all designs. Canva Pro is available for free for non-profit organizations. Learn more here.
Don’t try to do everything on your own! Get your team’s input by giving them editing access to your design. Click the “Share” button, tick the box giving them editing access, then send them the link. All your designs are stored on cloud so you and your colleagues can access them anytime, from any desktop, laptop, iPhone, iPad or Android device.
Once you’ve chosen your raffle ticket template and finished your design, you can print off your tickets onto ready-made ticket paper or cardstock and cut them out. If you want a more professional looking product, send your design off to a printing service and they’ll be delivered in a few days.
Raffle tickets come in different sizes, but generally they are around 2.125 inches by 5.5 inches. With stubs, they’ll be slightly bigger, around 1.97 inches by 5.63 inches. Most raffle ticket printing companies produce the smaller ones, but you can easily print your own.
The number should appear on two different halves of the raffle ticket: one for the person the ticket belongs to, and the other to enter into the drawing. The ticket should also include the price paid, the details of the drawing, the prizes and the participant’s contact information.
