How to request from a celeb outside the US.

Post by bloodiedmaniac » Sat Aug 25, 2018 7:14 pm

Hello, I am somewhat new to the autograph collecting game but I have had a decent amount of success so far. But with that being said, I have never attempted to send anything outside the US. That’s where I need some advice or help.

Which stamps do I use?
Do I need to fill out a Customs form.
Does the recipient need to fill out a Customs form?
What goes on the envelope?
What goes on the SASE?

(I’m just sending one or two 8x10s)

Any help would be appreciated as I have so many actors in mind who are in Canada and England.

You need US stamps to the celeb (Global Forever or enough regular stamps) and Canadian or British stamps on the return envelope.

No, if sending a letter and photo only.

As above.

You write the celebs address, and enough US stamps to cover the postage cost.

Your address, and enough Canadian/ British stamps to cover the cost.

http://www.USPS.com will have the outgoing prices.

http://www.royal-mail.com and http://www.canadapost.ca both have info on prices and stamps.

Canada Post accept online orders for stamps, Royal Mail doesn't so you'll need to look on eBay/Amazon. I recommended 1st Class & 2nd class as they work like your forever stamps.

Can I use any Canadian Stamp or are there specific stamps for sending to the United States?

I believe Canada Post offer a international stamp, but you can use any Canadian stamps.
