Tips on Autograph Collecting
An SASE is a self-addressed stamped envelope. What I usually do is take a 9x12 manilla envelope and attach a 32 cent cent stamp to it. Then fold it into thirds and enclose it in a business size envelope and attach a 32 cent stamp. The SASE will increase your chance of getting an autograph. It always helps to send an SASE but you don't have to send one. Its a lot cheaper if you don't. I have obtained many autographs w/out an SASE. The best thing to do is if you have something for the celeb to sign, or not, in which you might want to send a 3x5 index card, send the pic to them to sign. Celebs are usually willing to sign someting sent to them. Sometimes that is the only way to get an autograph.
-Be very polite and don't make it any longer than a page. Always say please and thank you.
-Mention a favorite work done by them. (Please don't write to a Celeb just because you know they will send you an autograph, write to them because you admire them and their work.)
-Do not say you are an "autograph collector."
-Remember to ask for an autographed photo. Do not expect they will just send you one.
-Basically keep it short and sweet. Get to the point about what you want.
