Can I email the form as text, with .jpgs of my signature?

Yes you may.

I have an additional question. If you have some friends who are getting a table too, and you want to be next to each other, should you apply for the 8 foot table together and then split it, or is there a way to request being next to each other?

I would suggest you apply together so I know who is sharing their spaces.


On that note, I was wondering that if we had additional artists this year, where would we find the Additional Artist registration form? Is it separate from the Artist Alley Submission form already available, or is it the same?

You just need to make copies of the Artist Submission forms for how ever many artist will be sharing the space.

If you buy the two tables, will you get 2 badges as well, seeing as though one badge and one chair comes with one half-space? Or do I need to  buy the two tables, and then list an additional artist name with the added cost of $25 for a second badge?

EDIT: Also... will these tables be skirted? x_x

Yes, the tables will be shirted, but you are welcome to bring your own table coverings as well. Each half table comes with one chair and one badge with the choice of purchasing 3 additional badges. Technically you can double this if you get a full table, however, space is limited, so be respectful to your neighbors. :)

Sweet! Now I don't have to worry about making skirts XD So to be sure, we are to make 2 copies of the second submission form for each artist we'll be sharing a table with? Or two copies of the giant 11 page long agreement?

Is it alright if our description of table set up on the form isn't exact? I've never had a booth in an artist alley before, and I'm still trying to figure out what the best way to set up my table will be, but I want to make sure I get my form in before the due date.

Ah, one more question! Me and some of my friends want to share a table since we collaborate with our work, so should each of use fill out a submission form with the same "business name" on it, or should we all put our names onto one form?

Jen-Jen, my friend and I go under the same business name. We came up with "Rocket Sushi Studios" so on each of our individual forms we've put that. I figure it'd be best in case the paperwork gets jumbled up or something similar.

I think Jen is just looking for a ballpark of how you guys are going to set your table up, too. Kiwi and I drew a picture of what our's is roughly going to look like on our half table.

okay so I know this has been asked to death but I just wanted to make sure before submitting-

each member of our party has to submit the agreement form ( but only the part we sign for the second person) and we submit 1 proposal paper (the paper that asks for images of our work and our table idea) with both our names on it....Is that right?   And then if we are getting a half table, we include the additional artist pass information on the proposal form, correct?


And do we need to submit pictures for everything we want to sell at our table? Or just a few is fine?  Are we allowed to sell things that we do not include on our proposal form?

Thanks in advance. I just wanted to be sure that I understood everything properly before submitting.

Sometime after the 30th I would imagine. I'm also willing to bet it will take a while after that since it is a mildly juried event from my understanding.

Yeah, it's in the contract itself. They're half tables at 4'x2' for $35 each. You can get two of them for a full table of 8'x2'.

Ok so my buddy and I are signing up for a full table.
now the question, she might not be able to get off of work for the Con, would it be possible, when we find out, to say "Oh I only need a half table now," and possibly get a refund and let someone have the other half of the table?

EDIT: also if (gods willing) we sell out early (cause we're both bringing 3d goods which are hard to pack a lot of) is it okay if we close, leaving contact info and such? I'm thinking on Monday only.
I'm planning on bringing supplys to make more items while I'm sitting there, but with finite supplys there's only so much we can bring and sell.

Spoke with Elvadas this evening. I, for one, do not envy her position. Artist Alley's situation is really tricky this coming year, and she's definitely doing her best given the limited space. She mentioned (like in the above post) that she got a stack of applications that she wasn't expecting. She's working hard to accommodate as many people as she can, though. That I can assure you.

Good luck to all of us to get a table!

same here, haven't received an email either. But I'm a bit relieved that I wasn't the only one though, even been checking my junk/spam folders too all day. But since seshetazhikaru got it ((curious what time you got yours)) Jen (and maybe others) are most likely still probably working overtime to email the rest of us? I know sending out lots of emails one after another can take a lot of time. There's still like 45 mins left for the 11th, haha.

So, whether or not I went to this con was going to be decided by if I got into AA or not. Now I have my confirmation, but there are apparently no hotel rooms left. Does anybody have anything that's near by that they can suggest?

Heathman lodge is close by I believe, also there is a comfort inn somewhere around there too I think...
there are also hotels located across the bridge by the airport. Depending on when you get up and drive there and back, traffic shouldn't be too bad...
Or you could try staying someplace more in town and then drive there. There are a few places by vancouver mall that I have seen....I honestly don't really notice them around town...so I'm afraid thats the best help I can probably give.

Sorry.

Just an FYI- those who still haven't received a reply, I apologize. I have been having emails bouncing, sometimes it takes a day or two to find out that out. :( You are welcome to send me a polite email if you have any questions and I will try to be prompt. It's been one of those weeks where I wish I have an extra set of hands or a robot slave. ;)

I was just wondering, maybe in the future you could offer a paypal that we could pay into instead of sending checks? Sending money and checks via mail has always sort of freaked me out. I understand that not everyone has paypal, but you could offer both mailing in and paypal, I suppose.

Just a suggestion I guess.

I agree with you...the whole mailing money and checks thing always makes me worried...

On that note, does anyone know if we are notified when our money arrives? I would hate to keep thinking that everything is good, only to find out later that the check never made it...
