Just curious, has anyone got signatures on a poster, or sent something in a poster tube?  I am thinking that was my mistake, it might be too much trouble for them to put the postage and mailing label on.  Seems the enclosed Sase works the best.  I sent a Hold Your Fire poster to the Gorge seems like I am the only one not to receive anything back

I sent a poster in a tube on a number of occasions and 3 out of 4 got sigs and were returned.  The only one that failed was one I had designated as an auction item for RushCon and their food bank charity.  That one reached the venue (The Starlight Theater in Kansas City, last year) and was given to the band or management but it never showed up at The Con.

Otherwise, posters and tubes seem to work just fine.  I always sent self-adhesive pre-paid postage as well as pre-addressed label for the return, all well packed and with very clear instructions, AND a new Sharpie marker for them to use for signing (I always asked for but never received the pen in return, though).  Both UPS and USPS return shipping was successful on at least one occasion.

Rock on!

Wanted to post earlier, but had to wait till after husband's birthday - found this thread about a week before the last show of the tour and decided to sent one of our pre-sale lenticular lanyards to the Gorge. I included a note that Karl (hubby) and I are huge fans, his birthday was coming up and getting the lanyard signed for him would be a huge surprise (and give me leverage in getting a new puppy! Hey, a girl's gotta do, what she's gotta do, right?) Honestly, when nothing returned in a week I thought no hope and on to b-day Plan B... but a few days later it was in the mailbox. Though I was really surprised to see that it was personalized to BOTH of us - between this and Neil's drumsticks, we're stuck with each other forever. Like some sort of marriage insurance! ( :

Got everything framed as a surprise - one set for S&A and the other set for TM. He was kinda sedate about the S&A set, because he knew all the items and we've wanted to properly display them for some time. But the look on his face when he opened the TM set and realized what was on the lanyard was priceless! I can't begin to describe how grateful I am that the band takes the time out of their already busy schedule  - and even at the last show of a long tour - to do something so nice for the fans. The only downside now is I've set the bar too high - Christmas is gonna be a let down, unless I can get Geddy to give Karl bass lessons.

(and yes, I got my new puppy!)

Alex signed one for Kelly D when he surprised her on her birthday and took her to the side of the stage and took pics with her. There's a thread here somewhere with a pic I think.

That is a great dream, but honestly I don't see Alex doing that. I ment If I just send it to the venue do the normaly sign it?

Shhhhhhh it's a secret!
As far as I understand during the tour you send an item you want autographed to the venue with a pre-addressed package and payed for and they normaly sign it. Don't tell everyone because I'm sure this "well" is drying up

Best bet is to just take a chance.  And please don't go to the well over and over again -- that would ensure that others will be unable to get their stuff signed!

FWIW, I sent mine to the Baltimore venue and it came back signed from New Orleans ...
