  1. For this show would have to be through the mail. When you go to a show that CGC is attending themselves you can do it in person. And yes...facilitators do get yellow labels when books are signed.
  2. Again...if a book already has the label then they sold it with permission and you should be able to maintain your purchase in perpetuity.
  3. Don't know if I told you but he laughed at wanting this on the book. :-)
  4. Shouldn't matter. I can understand about labels going forward, but if I've already purchased the custom label I should be able to have that label on that book in perpetuity IMO.
  5. No...fee plus $50 instead of fee plus $35.
  6. LOTS OF ADDITIONS: Charlie Sheen, Martin Sheen, Zachary Quinto, Carrie-Ann Moss, etc!
  7. No...after taxes and fees Clarke was $225 so she was $250 even on comics after a $25 facilitator fee. They have a guarantee. The guarantee is dictacted by the celebs and their management. Then they work with the convention to determine an appropriate price for photo ops and autographs...they base this on stuff like other guest's costs, average attendees they anticipate, how many people they can get through the photo op and autograph lines per hour etc. If the convention doesn't sell enough to hit the guarantee, they have to pony up the rest and pay the celeb the different. If they sell more it depends on the contract. It could all go to the celeb, it could be a split, or if they just paid a flat "appearance fee" the extra would go to the show.
  8. As promised...a new video on a way to eliminate Newton Rings using compressed air. Using the cardboard insert was fine for most books but some were SOOO tight that they were leaving the micro scratches. This seems to help quite a bit..as you can see I had a LOT of NR on the book I used in the video. Since doing the video I've done a few more and the NR are completely gone on some of them. The tighter the slab the more you have to use...and you do need to angle the blast a bit on the sides. PSA - DO NOT SPRAY THE AIR IN UPSIDE DOWN - As we all know when you turn a can of compressed air upside down you do get super-cooled air that has moisture in it. Hope this helps some of you!!
