How much does it cost to print Raffle Tickets?
Raffles are a great way to raise money for a school or local community.
The average cost of printing a book of 50 raffle tickets is $49.50 plus GST according to Avis Printing Sydney which has printed hundreds of thousands of raffle tickets in the 30 years it has been in business. It does not matter whether you choose to print the tickets in black and white or colour.
The cost of printing a book of 100 raffle tickets is $78 plus GST while the cost of printing a book of 150 tickets is $99 plus GST.
Should you print your Raffle Tickets in colour or black and white?
Leading printers like Avis Printing suggest you print your tickets in colour not black and white. The reason – there is no difference between the two prices.
Colour is preferable as it helps you make an impact with your audience. It makes them more likely to take your cause seriously and donate towards it.
Only not-for-profit organisations in Australia can run raffles
To run a raffle, you must be a school, charity, club or community organisation.
This means you must be listed as ‘not-for-profit.’ A corporation or a company that exists for the purpose of profit is not allowed to run a raffle.
Raffles are a time honoured tradition in Australia – rules, however, apply
Raffles have raised money for earthquakes, floods, famines, cancer and many other causes. Rules, however, apply.
Who sets the rules? The Department of Fair Trading.
Some general guidelines to note:
- A raffle must be conducted fairly. The individual or entity that organises the baffle must have a plan in place to ensure that tickets are secure, distributed on a basis that is purely random and cannot be manipulated.
- Raffle organisers cannot send tickets to any person except with the prior consent of the person, even if the person is a member of the organisation managing the raffle
The following prizes are not allowed
- Money prizes over $30,000
- Tobacco products
- Firearms or ammunition
- Prohibited weapons
- Cosmetic surgery or other procedure designed to improve personal appearance
- Liquor prizes – more than 20 litres of liquor with an alcohol content not exceeding 20 percent by volume or more than 5 litres of liquor with an alcohol content exceeding 20 percent by volume.
