Autographs


#1

What is the best type of pen to use for getting autographs?


#2

We use the little kids’ fat markers. It makes it easier for the characters to use and you can change out colors for the characters…Pink for Piglet, Yellow for Pooh, Grey/blue for Eeyore, etc…makes your autograph book colorful and you can always add a picture of you w/the character opposite of the autograph to really bring out the colors.

you can also use a fat barrled pen. I found one at the dollar store that i take with me. it is a little big but fits in my little back pack that i take with me. I have also seen these pens at Walgreens with their back to school stuff.

I used colored sharpies from Staples. They were fat enough for the characters to hold and permanent ink so the signature wouldn’t fade. I got the ones in more pastel colors and they were a hit among the characters. Goofy used all of them at once when he signed my book.


#5

I have always heard to use and we also use the FAT markers as it makes it easier for the characters to hold to sign


#6

We always buy the pens that are right next to the autograph books sold at the resorts/theme parks. They are fat enough for the characters to hold and write really well.


#7

Fat and permanent.

Like me.

Same here and the big pens make it harder for our girls to loose.


#13

definitely fat ones… I like the washable marker suggestion. That would be better with younger kids… you won’t have to worry about stains.

For the longest time as a kid, I used this adorable pen with a stuffed Tigger on the top, but it was really difficult for the characters to write with… after this realization, I switched to colorful Sharpies.


#14

Big, chunky crayons are also another way to go!


#15

We use those too.


#16

I also use the big fat ones that are right next to the autograph books to buy in the world. I have seen people with what we called the “nurses pen” which is a big fat pen that had a string on it to wear around your neck. It was big enough for the characters, and the kids couldn’t loose it.

A really neat idea I heard of for autographs was to take a fat Sharpie and a plain t-shirt and have the characters autograph the t-shirt. Then you have a souvenir to wear, not an autograph book that will sit on a shelf. If you do take the t-shirt, I would suggest taking a piece of cardboard for support while the characters are signing and to keep the ink from spreading to the other side of the t-shirt. :slight_smile:
