Unfortunately because of John’s health he is not always able to attend events and when he does he must limit his signing to small numbers for all. We have set up this service so fans can get a good number of cards signed and John can do this in a more leisurely manner. Charging is necessary as card signing requires considerably time, energy and logistics to oversee.
Card signing is now a flat rate of £1.50 per card.
Please REMOVE sleeves, they weigh extra and we cannot guarantee we will replace or return them.
500 is the maximum number of cards we can receive without prior arrangement. If you wish to have more than this signed please email email@example.com
Card alterations and doodles
John can also alter cards with a drawing of his choice (or doodle on the back of an artist proof). Price for an alteration or doodle is £10. If you want John to draw something very specific for you (within the limitations of a line drawing and John’s judgement) this becomes a commission and is £25.
John will routinely sign and alter in black ink. Gold or silver are available by request but please be aware these pens can cause sticking and flaking even after careful drying.
Payment can only be made using Paypal. Send your cards with a letter containing your return address and email address. We will advise you of their receipt and as soon your Paypal payment arrives the cards will be signed by John. We aim to get the cards turned around and back to you in about 4 - 8 weeks.
Postal address for cards is;
Guy Coulson (please DO NOT send them to John Avon Art as we will be deemed importing them and charged accordingly)
PO Box 5412

We don’t recommend you send your most valuable cards, as we are unable to guarantee their safety in the post. Postage options are;
1. You enclose your own stamped addressed envelope (this will only work if you are in the United Kingdom!)
2. We will repack in robust packaging and send anywhere in the world these prices are estimates for postage – we will provide you with an exact price when we receive your cards;
|Number of cards||Post to UK||Post to EU||Rest of the World|
|Courier/Signed for shipping||P.O.A.||P.O.A.||P.O.A.|
PLEASE NOTE on customs forms tick ‘GIFT’ and do not insure for high amounts. This will be picked up by customs and we will have to pay over 20% charge on this value, or if we do not pay your cards will be returned to you at your own cost. If you are worried about your cards it is better to send them by courier and undervalue them. We will reclaim any customs payments from you where necessary.
