I sent the packaging from my Rush Beyond The Lighted Stage DVD off to Red Rocks yesterday via priority mail. I was going to send my Moving Pictures album cover but it's pretty beat. I figured since they are at Red Rocks for a couple of days there's a good chance it would get signed and returned. Crossing my fingers and hoping that the Plane Of Dharma is kind to me....

Here's a handy little checklist in bullet form for those wanting to send in an item to be signed:

TO SEND IN ITEMS TO BE SIGNED

* Pick the item you want signed.
* Stick it in a package.
* Include a SASE that will hold your signed item of choice. (Be sure to attach enough postage. This may mean going to the post office, weighing the envelope and item together to ensure that you attach the correct amount of postage for everything to be returned to you.)
* Before mailing, and to be sure it arrives at the venue of your choice, attach a ‘Delivery Confirmation Receipt’ (available at the post office). You can then look up online to see when your package arrives.
* Mail the item so that it arrives close to the show date.


From my experience, and others, items are put in the mail the day they’re signed.

Thank you.  Im going to send My Moving Pics CD or Roadshow

Sorry if this has already been answered but is everybody sending items via regular US Mail or using FedEx or another overnight service??  I'd prefer to use an overnight service and includce a prepaid overnight return envelope but I wanted to see if anybody had any success with this method before I did.  I'm going to the Chicago show on 8/23.

Thanks so much

Regular mail - US Post Office. I'm sure a prepaid overnight return envelope would be fine.

The reason I don't recommend FedEx is because I think the individual on the crew who handles the mail drop just wants to make one stop.  Can't blame him, really.  No one would want to have to sort through all that and make trips to USPS, FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc., all in an unfamiliar town.

Good point....but I bet the items are sent via the venues regular mail procedures. I don't think that anyone from the crew is even involved.

Very cool that you got it back. Did you also send two items to be signed but only got one in return? Did the items need to be sent in separate packages (like, one was the book, the other a poster)? I'm still curious as to why only my album cover was signed but not the sheet music?

So now I have to re-mail the sheet music but that's fine because since I ended up going to the show, I now have my tour book which I would LOVE to be signed. I guess I'll attach a sticky note to the sheet music asking if Alex could sign it. Hopefully this will happen! I would be so grateful.

Well...

I had sent a few things to the Seattle show. Two things that I really wanted signed, got one thing back. I had asked for picks and sticks too but didn't get any. That's ok though because I wasn't actually expecting them... just thought it would have been nice. BUT! Here is my signed item:

So, I am happy with it and it'll be framed soon and hanging next to my framed, signed S&A tour book. (I had sent in the guitar sheet music for SOR because that was the first song that hooked me but it came back, unsigned. I'm actually pretty damn bummed about that.)

You know, I've noticed that Neil tends to take the time to personalize items.  I imagine the names have to be pretty clearly attached to whatever it is he's signing, but my copy of Roadshow is personalized.  Several other items that people have posted photos of also have names, in Neil's handwriting, above his signature.

Just saying, you know, it's Neil. . .doing a little something extra for fans. . . wink.gif

Well then, XOXO to Neil!

YES! I opened up the door today to find the envelope holding a photo of Rush I sent to be autographed biggrin.gif Everyone signed it, and Neil even wrote 'To Kaitlin'. Cool Stuff! I'm so happy, I was shaking when I opened it up. I'm going to frame it with my Time Machine tickets smile.gif

I'm kind of upset about my name being on it though, because originally it was going to be a gift for my boyfriend sad.gif oh well.

Yeah, I sent the items in different envelopes.  Mainly, because I wanted Neil to sign the book, and Geddy to sign the pick guard off of my GL Jazz bass.  cool.gif

It would be way cool if I got that pick guard back, but it's no biggie, I guess.  I was gonna put one of those sweet white pearl pick guards on there, like what Geddy has this tour!  cool.gif

What are people doing to send in vinyl sleeves? I'm just trying to figure out a way that would be cost effective and convenient for everyone on that end of the line. Has anyone sent in multiple items in one package? My friend and I both wanted to send our albums together, to save money on shipping. Just wanted to get some insight into it. Thanks!

I am thinking that it would be best to send the items individually.  I don't think you would be saving a lot of $$.

Question: So you just have to send your item to the address of the venue? And how far ahead of the show do should I send it?
