Professional Photo Ops, what’s that?
A professional photo is taken by a professional photographer. Our professional photographer will take and print an 8×10 photo of you and celebrity guest(s) onsite under professional lighting and in front of a backdrop. A photo op is not a meet & greet. Photo Ops do not include an autograph (unless otherwise noted). You can meet a celebrity guest and get your item autographed when the celebrity is at their table in celebrity row.
Will guests do photos at their table?
Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Ultimately, it is up to each guest. If we know in advance we will announce it for some guests, but your best bet is always to ask.
Will the Celebrity Guests be signing autographs?
You can purchase an autograph from a Celebrity Guest at their table in Celebrity Row. Autograph prices are set by the Celebrity (not the show) and can change at any time. The Great Allentown Comic Con! does not sell Celebrity autographs. PLEASE NOTE: Autographs are NOT included in a Photo Op (unless noted otherwise). A Photo Op is a professional photo taken by the show photographer.
Can I set up as an Exhibitor/Artist?
Yes. Once you submit your application and payment, a representative from The Great Allentown Comic Con! will confirm your application submission. Please note that you will not be guaranteed a table without both application and payment submitted BEFORE the show. All submissions will not be guaranteed unless a confirmation email from The Great Allentown Comic Con! noting booth number.
What's the deal with the Door Prizes?
We love our fans. So much so that we love to give away door prizes. When you enter the show, be sure to stop by the sign-up table to fill out an entry form for a chance to win an awesome prize. Winners will be announced throughout the day and posted on a display near the door prize sign-up table with instructions on how to claim a door prize. Any unclaimed prizes will NOT be shipped – although every effort will be made to contact the winner during the show hours, so be sure to fill out your entry form completely.

Costumes are not only supported, they are encouraged! In fact, we even have costume contests at many of our events! Visit see our SHOW POLICIES page for information about Costumes, Weapons and Cosplay.
If I bring my own item with me, will a guest sign it?
Most will, yes, but not always. You will need to ask each guest individually.
Can I bring a weapon as part of my cosplay costume?
Costumes and cosplay are totally welcome at The Great Allentown Comic Con! While we recognize that cosplay is a BIG part of making our event great, we do want to make sure that everyone has a fun and SAFE time at the event.
How Much Are Autographs?
Due to actors potentially changing pricing, we do not post prices until we are certain they will not change.  ON AVERAGE. the cost for an autograph at our events is in the $40-50 range, with some outliers being higher or lower. If it is at all possible to post pricing we will do so prior to an event.
Do Exhibitors & Artists take credit cards?
Most exhibitors, artists and guests do take credit cards, but for the most part cash is king!
