Autographs FAQ

Q: How do I go about getting an autograph or signed print at the show?

A: Simply go to the first floor (Liffey Level) and join the queue. Please note that waiting times may vary and some queues can be longer than others. If you have a Fast Pass for autographs then be sure to join the correct queue. You can find the Autograph Fast Pass on the main ticketing page. If you do not wish to stand in line, you can ORDER HERE for an autograph to be delivered after the show.

Q: Do I need a VIP ticket to meet the guests or get an autograph?

A: No, once you have a general entry ticket you may go up and say hello to a guest at their table, simply join the queue. If you wish to have a signed print or an item autographed then you must purchase one, the same goes for photos/selfies at their table.

Q: What is the guest Fast Pass?

The Fast Pass allows you to join a much shorter queue and complete all your signings much quicker than if you were in the normal queues. It is applicable to all guests.

Simply purchase it online (supplies are limited!) and pick up your Fast Pass wristband at the Guest Merchandise desk located on the First floor near the guests.

Q: Can I bring the guest an item of mine and have them sign it? 
A: Yes, you can but please note the cost will be the same to get a signature on the said item. You are allowed get 5 items signed at any one time then you must queue again to keep the flow moving. Guests reserve the right to refuse to sign items they deem offensive or inappropriate. 

Q: Can I buy pre signed autographs at the show?

A: Yes, you can. We will have a limited number of autographs pre signed at the merch desk to allow you to get a signed picture without having to queue. This is ideal if you are purchasing for friends or family and do not wish to queue.

SOME POINTS TO NOTE

- Guests may refuse to sign items if not in good taste

- Selfies are not guaranteed (some guests do not like doing them)

- If you are spending too long chatting to a guest and the queue is busy you will be

asked to move on

- Guests may at any stage request plexiglass or use of masks for photos or signings

- Guests take breaks, they are human, so please be patient and listen to staff and security

- If you have a large amount of items to sign you may be asked to come back

- If you are a trader with items to sign, please let us know in advance or a member of staff on 

the day before you queue

Autographs can range from 15 Euro to 50 Euro depending on the guest and generally gets you a signed photograph of the guest. Most guests will sign other items (ie. DVD's, props etc) if you bring them and ask nicely. As the event gets closer we will list the price along side each guest. You must follow staff and DCC volunteers instructions and queue in the correct area and pay before your item is signed. VIP Ticket holders have priority queueing in this area.

 

Please be aware that we do not set the price of autographs. Some guests give discounts if getting multiple signatures on items or signed photographs. If you have more than 5 items to get signed you will be asked to come back after the first 5 are signed or to leave them and collect them from the guest's table later so that others may get signatures.

If you can not attend the event or are working at a stall and can not get an autograph, we will offer a facility where you can pre purchase an autograph and it is sent out to your home address 10 working days after the show. This will be launched closer to the event.

All of our guests are people just like you and I, so there are times they may be away from their table for a break, but do not fret...they mostly return....mostly...

 

Please remember that the guests may meet hundreds of people a day (and they love meeting their fans) they can sometimes get headaches from constant camera flash or may just be recovering from a cold and won't give you a hug as they don't want to spread anything (or vice versa...yes there is a thing called con flu...) so do not take it personally if you experience any of the above. Every guest we have had at DCC has loved meeting their Irish fans and they enjoy these shows as much as we all do and remember all guests will be present both days unless otherwise stated. Please note that guest appearances are subject to availability. Some may cancel due to work commitments and this is outside of our control.

* Please note any inappropriate behaviour/comments towards guests or staff will result in removal from the event

Photographs and Photoshoots

Photos at guest tables are allowed but are charged at a rate that will be visible at the guest table and some guests may not allow any..so please keep it in mind. Should a guest now wish to have photographs taken at a table, for whatever reason, we will have the appropriate signage in place.

You can pre purchase a selection of photo ops for specific guests so you can guarantee you won't miss out! VIP Ticket holders DO NOT have priority queuing in this area.

As the event draws closer we will release a limited number or pre purchase photo ops for specific guests (both standard and themed photo ops) which are pre paid. If you do not wish to pre purchase your photo op then please be aware that queues may be long and that once we hit the end of the designated time for a specific guest we will have to refuse attendees as we can not let the 12pm photoshoot run into the 1pm photoshoot etc.

How it works :

1) Your photo will be taken by a professional photographer.

2) The shot will be taken in front of a backdrop and with lighting to ensure for the best result.

3) You will be standing beside the guest(s) and not leaning over a table.

4) Your picture will be printed on professional photopaper and a digital image is available upon request at a later date via CJ Mobile Studios.

Online payment covers : Cost of print, free access to digital images after the show has ended (please allow lead time of 2/3 weeks for access to digital image), transaction fees and guarantee you won't miss out!

 

**Please note the cost of photoshoot covers 2 people max + special guest . If you are having a group photo of more than 2, than the additional people must pay the full price as if it is an additional photoshoot. Only one print provided for every 2 attendees. (i.e a group of 4 get 2 prints). Additional prints cost extra.

Sketches

Similar to autographs, sketches from guests are available. The price range is set by the guest, so simply ask them at their table (they don't bite!).

Most guests can do simplified personal sketches at a quick turn around rate (this is to ensure that they do not leave any attendee missing out) but if you wish to have a more detailed piece done, please attempt to contact the guest and artist in advance of the show so that they can dedicate the appropriate time to work on your piece and you may collect it at the show or meet them at the start of the show (i.e Saturday morning or lunch time) so that they can give you an approximate completion time.
