I'm in the process of making a special autograph book for my DD where the character will sign a piece of paper with a clipart picture of them and their name on it and on the opposite page will be an additional sleeve for a picture of that character with my DD! It's turning out great and I'm excited but was wondering what the best pen is to use?? I know the big fat/chunky pens but what about ballpoint vs. marker/sharpie?? Also any tips on best way to get autographs or places???? Thanks!!! ;)

We found that Sharpie's were the best. If my nephews were wearing baseball caps, some of the characters would either sign their hats or if they were wearing a t-shirt, sign that.

for the book we got big fat ones and we also bought laundry markers permanent for hats and t shirts.....the fat pens were easier for the characters with big fingers and gloves on.....hope this helps :D

Hi! We found the broad tip Sharpie pens to be the best...the thinner/finer tips don't seem to leave as nice an autograph. Also, it seemed to be easier for the characters to sign with the broader ones...a few even drew pictures with it.
Have fun!

Thanks for everyone's replies!! I guess a sharpie it is unless someone thinks one of those multicolored pens would be better- read about those also on these boards but they're ballpoint.

Hi,
The last time we went to disney we found that a fat marker or fat pen worked best. That way characters in costumes and not could both use it. Also, we were suprised when Eeyore had his own marker.

Hi everyone!

Well I've picked up my sharpies! I got the SUPER SHARPIES boy are they BIG!!!! Someone mentioned that the broad tip was best and made better autographs. These that I bought have sharp tips but seem to write nice but of course I'm not a character!!! Should I just keep them or should I really get broad tip?

Also was just wondering too, I'm thinking of taking another pen for the actual people characters-princesses etc. because these sharpies are really huge and I can't imagine signing an autograph with them myself. So, anyone recommend a good pen for just the regular real live characters????
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!! ;)
