    I love the look of the photo mats that have been autographed. I have purchased two for our trip. (one for each DD - no fights that way:thumbsup2 ) Do I have to put them in two seperate bags with markers or do I put them both in the same bag with one set of markers?:confused3

    Also I have masked off the edges with painters tape and put my name and cabin number on the back of both. Anything else I should do? I'll get a bag of candy to "sweeten the deal" for the cast members.:flower3: I think this will be the favourite souveneir from the trip!

    TIA!:wave2:

    I would put each of them in a large ziploc bag with their own markers. That way they don't smear against each other.

    On the back, also show how you want the frame signed in terms of it being displayed in portrait or landscape.

    I think you will really appreciate it, too! I had some "secretively" signed, and then I put them in a frame with a special photo and gave them as Christmas gifts to my DGM and DM, who also went on my cruise. They were so thrilled!

    yes, make sure you list which direction you want them signed, we just got back from the wonder and I didn't even think when I handed mine in to be signed. Needless to say I have 2 photo mats signed vertically and all my pictures are the opposite way. I guess I'll just have to go on another cruise so I can get pictures for my photo mats.:rotfl2:

    You could always take your pictures to Walmart photo and have them scanned then crop them to fit the right way.

    Thanks Ibraves,
    I will do that, never thought of it. We are so sorry we didn't rebook on board as we are dying to go again
