Characters signing Golden Books

What kind of pen? Pink gel pen? Black sharpie?

TIA

Sharpie will bleed through, just use a regular pen.

Or back the pages with cardstock, which is what I do (and then reassemble pages into a whole new book).

Thanks, I thought a sharpie would bleed through it. I'm so caught up in planning, I'm overthinking everything!

A sharpie is perfect for signing the inside cover. Cinderella signed 16 LGB at my daughter's birthday party, and not one bled through.

Not the princesses, but many of the other characters have gigantic paw-like hands, and I've found Sharpies work best. Or at least a big chunky writing implement.

I like the idea of signing the inner cover of a Golden Book (one book for each character or two, as you could have another sign the inside back cover).

If the character doesn't have their hands exposed, they usually won't take a sharpie. They don't want to get it on the outfit.

I got a Golden book with Cinderella, ariel, aurora, Snow White, Rapunzel, belle and tiana in it and I was just going to have each one sign their page.

I also got a Frozen one.

I'm not going to do autographs for the other characters we meet.

I know Belle doesn't do autographs at ETWB, does she do them at Akershus? If not, where else can we meet her and get autograph? Other than CRY

She signs at Akershus and in the France pavilion at EPCOT. She is not longer a regular at CRT and I don't think she's a main back-up either.

On our trip, all 30+ characters we met signed with a sharpie.

Yeah, we never had a gloved character refuse to use a sharpie.

I wasn't thinking of the inside cover, a Sharpie would be fine for that. But on the regular pages, you would need to use a pen.
