We got a job in last month for Table Number Cards for a restaurant - 45 each of 1-70.  I just set up the BG on the master page in InDesign with a text box set to Page Number, then added 70 pages.  Job done.  PDF to step em up and on to the next job.  

We have a utility to add sequential numbers to a many-up sheet of eg concert tickets which works with PDFs but I have done concert tickets with the page number dodge in the past.

Can also be done in Illustrator using a script that will add a sequential numbers on a step and repeat.

A different Illustrator script can do this via variable data merge and batch saving of 1 up files (which would then require imposing)

So many options, so little time to get the work out the door!

If I am doing it with a data merge I just add the numbers to the excel file and merge it with everything else.

For ticket numbering I use a free app called easynumbering, very easy to use and works well for properly numbering and stacking a job.
