Autograph Mat Size?

What would be the max size for a mat to be autographed. I see everyone says put it in a zip bag with markers. Was wondering if they will accept a larger mat.

I am taking an 18" x 18" in March. It fits a 5" x 7" photo. I asked on here and others had successfully had large mats signed.

What are you allowed to get autographed? I'm thinking about a princess pillowcase, will that work?

I have 3 grandkids, how many pillowcases can i get done?

What do i need to do?

thanks so much

Pillowcases, photo mats, vinylmation, etc. The rule is two per stateroom unless there are more than two children in the stateroom I believe.

Pillowcases are allowed, no problem.


But i thought (i know that if i'm wrong there are people respond withthe correct answer) that 1 item is allowed per stateroom...
** see the above post: 2 items per stateroom..

Thin or regular tip size for Sharpie pens for mats? What shows best-- multi-colors or all red or black?

It's one item per person as far as I know. So if you have 3 grandkids you can send 1 each. And, if the instructions are the same you can put them all in one large bag with one set of pens!

I think I bought regular. No yellow. An assortment is good because then characters can sign in an appropriate color.

I brought a mat that had openings for 3 5x7 photos and it was fine. I used ribbon to tie my markers to the mat so they wouldn't be lost. I also used a pencil to mark the top and bottom so there would not be any confusion about the orientation.

autograph size mat

I think the size of the matt depends on how big your suitcase is.I brought a 26 inch one and in the bottom there was a zipper part where I could put padded envlope in and than pack clothes on top.I would first buy a padded envlope and see how that would fit in your suitcase first and the buy the mat.I bought a 11x14 mat with a fittting for a 8x10.Glad I got that size.The 8x10 picture I had bought on the cruise looks good.I also would not get to big a mat cause you dont know how many signtures you would get.I would send a e-mail to DCL and ask how many items can you bring to guest services to have signed

Thanks

Thanks everyone for your quick response. I have a larger size mat and was worried it might be too big. Picked up 8x10 for my Mom and 3 Team Mickey pillowcases for the kids today. I was under the impression that each individual in a stateroom could get something autographed, not just children. Am I incorrect? Again thanks for all the help, this is my first Disney Cruise.
