Anime USA has a really powerful lineup of guests for our 20th anniversary, as I’m sure you’ve all seen. However, as conventions and the anime industry has grown and evolved over time, so have the needs and requirements for our guests. While your membership to Anime USA will guarantee you at least one free autograph from most of our guests, some have limitations on the types of items they will sign for free.
So, for the benefit of all our members this year, here is the official autograph policy and the information for every guest:
AUTOGRAPH POLICY: All paid members (one-day, three-day, silver & sponsor) and presenters are entitled to receive one autograph card that will have spaces for each guest. In order to receive your card, you must go to the Info Desk. Upon receipt of your card, your membership badge will be stamped, and you will be unable to receive another, so please do not lose it. When you request a free autograph from a guest, your autograph card will be stamped to indicate that you have received your free autograph. Any autographs beyond that will be charged at a rate determined by the individual guest. Our guests do not publicly announce their rates until the show, so we are unable to list the specific prices.
Lisa Ortiz: 2 free autographs per member
Monica Rial: 1 free autograph per member
Crispin Freeman (Friday & Saturday Only): 1 free autograph per member
Kira Buckland: 2 free autographs per member
Karen Strassman: 2 free autographs per member
John Ratzenberger (Saturday & Sunday Only): 1 free autograph on your souvenir program guide ONLY. All other merchandise will be charged at the guest’s chosen rate.
Mr. Ratzenberger will be signing autographs at his personal table in the dealer room only. He will appear from 1-5 PM on Saturday, and 1-3pm on Sunday after his panels.
Please note: Mr. Ratzenberger does not do photo ops at his table.
Jim Cummings (Saturday & Sunday Only): 1 free autograph on your souvenir program guide ONLY. All other merchandise will be charged at the guest’s chosen rate.
THE SOUND BEE HD: Autographs only on official merchandise purchased at their convention table, or the Anime USA Souvenir Guide.
