Sharpie question

If you send a pic to be autographed by a former President do you include the sharpie or do you ask for them to use one?

    Sending a Sharpie shouldn't be necessary. The chances of receiving an authentic signature are pretty slim in the first place due to the volume of mail our ex-Presidents receive. In the event that your letter would actually generate a response I would expect that they would have the proper signing instrument already at their disposal. Good luck!

    I thought the glass and the paper had more to do with fading than the ink. Do sharpies fade?

    I didn't think sharpie ink fades on its own.

    I've been collecting for almost 20 years and can count on one hand how many times I've sent a sharpie to someone to sign with and that was only because I wanted a certain ink on the item. Most have sharpies to use. But as stated before, presidents are way hard to track down and get a genuine autograph but good luck. you never know.
