Can I request to have Randy autograph my sculpture?
- Autographs can be requested for pieces that Randy has personally sculpted/worked
on. (There is a fee for this additional service.)
- This service is not guaranteed and is subject to the availability of Randy and
our shipping department. However, the additional fee will only be charged
if the autograph request is fulfilled.
- We do not take requests for sketches. Occasionally, Randy will include a sketch
on a sculpture, however this is solely at Randy's discretion.
- We cannot offer autograph requests from other sculptors.
- Autographed pieces take much longer to prepare and ship, so a delay in shipping
these pieces should be expected.
