Items to sign help!!

In hobby lobby they have plain tree bulbs that I could use for signatures. Are these to bulky or inconvenient for characters to sign?

Any size mat is okay, but you have to carry it on and off, so the bigger it is, the more likely it will get damaged.

I don't think the ink would stick to the glass ornaments very well, and I don't think they'd like dealing with the glass.

Something that might be cool...
If you cut scrapbook paper into a circle the size of the ornament (diameter) and have the characters sign them. Once you get home, roll the paper to get it into a clear ornament and let it go. You will have the signature preserved in the ornament, but don't have to lug them there (or worry about breakage).
Sharpie doesn't show up real well on those ornaments, you have to go over it multiple times. I think you might be disappointed.
Good luck!

I'd be afraid the glass would break. Imagine if it broke in the character's hands... Ack.

That would be bad, but I think this is the type of item you would drop off to guest services to have signed. At the meet and greets it is usually just autograph books. As one above poster was saying you can take an item to guest services and people will often leave selected color markers with the items as well as a candy gift for the Cms signing.
