Microsoft Publisher offers many design tools that let you create any type of publication or document. You can essentially make anything in Publisher, including tickets. The easiest way to make tickets in Microsoft Publisher is to download a ticket template from Microsoft Office's website and modify it in Publisher with your own text, colors and graphics. These steps can be used for creating tickets in both Microsoft Publisher 2003 and 2007.

Add graphics to the template. Go to "Insert" and "Picture." To add a photo or other graphic that is saved on your computer, click "From File." To search for and add clip art, select "Clip Art."



Step 7

Delete any extra text boxes or graphics that you do not need by clicking on them and then pressing the "Delete" key.

Step 8

Go to "Format" and "Background" to change or add a background to the ticket. The options for the different types of backgrounds will appear in the box on the left side of the screen. Click on one to apply it to the ticket.

Step 9

Save the ticket and print it out.
