I help people meet celebs by posting about upcoming events on Twitter at @alexirob

If you can’t meet celebs but still want to get signed pictures, autographs and write letters to celebrities, you can use fan mail addresses.

Here’s a blog I wrote with all the info you need to know

I decided to write letters myself to see who would send what and how long it would take.

On January 11 and 12, I mailed over 50 letters using my guide and Google to find autographs I didn’t already have fanmail.biz is also a great source! I sent self addressed stamped envelopes and letters of request. I put $1.08 on an envelope with my address on it and folded that up and put in in a big envelope that also had $1.08 worth of stamps! I also wrote personalized letters to each celeb. saying I was a fan and would appreciate a signed pic.

On January 18th, I received this from Brandon Johnson who plays Gary Wilde on Shake It Up and host My Yard Goes Disney!

A Complete Guide to Writing Fan Mail

Meeting Celebrities is a thrilling experience! If you live in Los Angeles, New York or other big cities you might be lucky enough to meet a celebrity at an event in real life and maybe ask for an autograph.
If not, you can still request autographs using fan mail. Most celebrities will reply to fan mail and see it as another part of being famous. Some send a personalized signed picture. Some send a handwritten note. You may even get a cast photo or memorabilia from the show the star works on. Some celebrities have staff who handle fan mail and they simply send out pre printed signed pics.

There are several on line resources to find star’s addresses. I have a blog with many Disney and Nickelodeon stars addresses. Also Fanmail.biz is a great source. That site has forums and 1000’s of addresses.

Some stars have different addresses
Via Venue means the address at the location the celebrity is filming at.
For example: Bella Thorne tapes Shake it Up at LA Center Studios
So her via venue address is :

Bella Thorne
1201 West 5th St
LA, CA. 90017

Most stars also have an address they prefer fan mail be delivered to which may be the manager /talent agent

So Bella’s other address is:
Bella Thorne
William Morris Endeavor
9601 Wilshire Blvd.
3rd Floor
Beverly Hills, CA 90210

There are a few terms we use so often, we have abbreviations for them:

LOR = Letter of Request

SASE = self addressed stamped envelope

TTM= through the mail

PP pre-printed

A Letter of Request should always be included in your fan mail. If you are requesting something from a celeb take the time to let him/her know what they mean to you.

Sample LOR:

Dear______,
I’ve been a fan ever since I heard/saw _________. I think you are an amazing _________. I follow you career and can’t wait until _____.
I follow you on Twitter. I hope you hit ________ followers soon. It would be great to meet you someday. You inspire me to __________.
Could I please have an autographed picture? It would be amazing if you replied!
Sincerely,
__________

20120123-140152.jpg

SASE= self addressed stamped envelope
It is always good etiquette to send an envelope that you have already addressed with your address and Put stamps on. $1.08 is the suggested amount an 9×12 envelope with a few papers inside.

20120123-141646.jpg

TTM = Through the Mail
Someone might say I got this autograph in person and this one TTM .. Meaning through mail.

So here are the steps to sending fan mail.

1 Get the supplies you will need
2 9×12 envelopes
Paper for letters
Stamps
Optional pre printed address labels
Optional : Markers or stickers just for fun

2 Decide who you will send mail to. I think it’s a good idea to send out a bunch at the same time. That way you will hopefully get some back. Not all addresses are current and not all celebs reply.

3. Look on my blog or search Fanmail.Biz for addresses.

4 write your letters of request

5 include 1 letter, 1 pre addressed self stamped envelope in each envelope.

20120123-145842.jpg

6 Mail Them

7 Wait for replies

Hopefully you will receive some with 2-3 weeks. Some might take months if a star is filming on location or has a fan mail address in a different state like Ariana Grande.
Her fan mail address is:
Ariana Grande
265 S Federal Hwy
Suite 331
Deerfield Beach, FL 33441

As you can imagine, it would take extra time to get her mail and reply.

I hope this helps you get autographs.
Please comment here if you try this and have success!

Get Miss Caley to LA

20111201-194639.jpg

Me (@alexirob) with Caley, Taylar Hender and Tiffany Espensen at a Dreamagazine party!

Hey Guys,
My friend Caley has Cystic Fibrosis. That’s a disease that affects her lungs mostly but makes her sick a lot! She has to have treatments, medicine and go to the hospital A LOT! Her birthday is coming up and her family and I want to make her birthday wish come true!

Dreamagazine is having a winter party 12/5/11 and Caley wants to come down with her family! Times are a little tough so Caley’s mom kinda joked in Twitter let’s get Caley to LA send a donation.

Well my mom and I think that with tons of awesome people on Twitter with kind hearts we can totally make this happen!

The thing about Caley is she is only healthy some of the time — if we just say let’s wait for another party another time — she might be too sick!

So let’s get her to LA this Monday!

The family needs $500 for food, gas and a hotel room.

If 20 people give $25 we got it!!

We aren’t asking for charity! We will actually be selling signed items and mail them to you!

Please tweet me at @alexirob and me and my mom will organize this so Caley’s mom can take care of Caley who now has a kind of diabetes that kids with CF get sometimes.

Meeting Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld picHailee SteinfeldHailee Steinfeld gave me her autographHailee Steinfeld at a Shake it up taping

Meeting Hailee Steinfeld , a set on Flickr.

Hailee is a young actress that beat out 15,000 actresses for the role of Hattie Ross in the Movie True Grit. She did such a great job on that movie that she was nominated and won tons of awards! She presented at the Oscars with Justin Beiber. Her fashion is amazing. She has been to many premieres and events and people love seeing her. She didn’t get the role in Hunger Games but did get the role playing Juliet.

We met her after a taping of Shake it up. She is very good friends with Adam Irigoyen an actor on that show!
She came over when we called and took a pic, chatted for a while and gave me her autograph.

The actor who plays Deuce is Adam Irigoyen. He has a Twitter and when Hailee Steinfeld started to get really well known he kept tweeting that she didn’t have Twitter. We saw a poser on Twitter that EVERYONE was believing. It was right around Oscar time. The poser had about 3000 followers and was fooling everyone! It bugged us so much so we set out to expose the poser! Other people on Twitter helped  HaileeSteinfans, TeamSteinfeld, LoveforHaileeS ,SteinfeldNation, CarlyDemetria and Dbeist all  helped. Some people were mad about us doing that and sent mean tweets!
They finally deleted the Twitter. Hailee confirmed that she has never had Twitter last night when we met her. She even thanked us for exposing the poser!!
I can’t wait to see what roles Hailee gets next!!

Meeting Joe Jonas

Meeting Joe Jonas, a set on Flickr.

We met Joe at Wango Tango May 14, 2011. He was there to introduce his first single as a solo artist, apart from his brothers Nick and Kevin. The song is called “See No More,” He took pics with fans going in and on his way out! My mom took video. He hugged fans, took pics, someone even kissed him. There was a guy from Pop Candies who took video of Joe with me. Joe also gave me his autograph. I’m so happy I met him! He was very quiet and sweet with all of us! I can’t wait for See No More in June.
