What are chinese auctions, tricky trays, penny socials and penny sales?
They're enduringly popular special event fund-raisers that combine the elements of both an auction and a raffle. What you call them and how you define them depends, in large part, on where you live. There are as many different ways to run these events as there are different names for them! The one thing most of the variations have in common, though, is that the bidding is done by ticket. Each participant buys a certain number of tickets for a set price, then uses those tickets to "bid" on a variety of donated items on "auction." They can bid as many tickets as they wish on each item they're interested in, usually by depositing the tickets in a container assigned to that item. Rather than going to the highest bidder, though, as it would at a regular auction, the item goes to the person whose ticket is drawn, at random, from the container.

Why should my organization buy ticket sheets like the ones you sell? Can't we just use strips of tickets off a roll? Or slips of paper?
Sure you can, but the type of tickets we sell are a lot less hassle for everybody involved. With ours, your attendees have 26 tickets, but just one ticket number to keep track of. . . which is a whole lot easier than keeping track of 26 different numbers. And it's a heck of a lot easier than having to write their names on 26 separate slips of paper!

Ticket sheets like ours also mean less work for the event crew. No long strips of tickets to count off, lots less mess to clean up at the end of the evening -- and no hastily scribbled names to decipher on the back of every winning ticket. The ticket sheets can even serve as a simple way to verify how much money the auction took in.

How big are the ticket sheets?
Each ticket sheet is approximately 8.5 inches wide by 3.66 inches high and contains 27 perforated tickets, all with the same number -- 25 tickets for your auction, 1 ticket for your door prize, and 1 claim ticket which the bidder retains.

Do they come in different colors? And who picks the color I get?
Our tickets are available in 6 different colors -- white, green, tan, blue, pink and yellow. You can choose the color you prefer or let us choose a color for you. All tickets are printed in black ink.

If I order, how soon will you ship my tickets?
We're able to ship most orders next business day.

How are they delivered?
We ship your tickets by United Parcel Service (UPS). Note: UPS cannot deliver to P.O. boxes, so you must specify a street address on the order form.

Is rush delivery available?
Yes. We offer both 2nd-day air and next-day air at an additional charge. You will be given the option to choose either of these during the online checkout process.

Do you accept international orders?
Please note that we are only able to accept online orders from the U.S. Orders from Canada are also welcome, but need to be placed by phone so that we can accurately determine your shipping charges. Canadian customers, please call us toll-free at 888-290-4862 to order. At this time we are not able to accept orders from countries other than the U.S. or Canada.

I want to order by mail. How do I place my order?
Just fill in the order form, print it out, and mail it to us with your check or money order.

What if I have questions after I've placed my order?
If you have questions about the status of your order, e-mail andy@auction-tix.com. or call us toll-free at 888-290-4862.

What if I'm not satisfied with my order?
We want you to be completely satisfied with your tickets. If you're not, just return the complete order to us within 30 days for refund or replacement -- whichever solution works best for you.

Is it possible to have my organization's name printed on the tickets I purchase?
Yes, we will do custom imprinting on large-quantity orders at an extra charge. Give us a call toll-free at 888-290-4862, or send an e-mail to andy@auction-tix.com Once we know exactly what you need, we'll be able to quote you a price.

I'm a retailer and your ticket prices are really fantastic. . . less than many other printers charge wholesale. Do you care if I buy from you and resell at a higher price?
No, that's fine with us.
