Request autograph (Nightwolf)
If you're writing a letter to Jorja, here's some advice from a long standing user.
First and formost, do not email this website asking for pictures. We only have two, and we got one back in 1996 when Jorja was on ER and the other in 2000 when CSI was getting popular. You need to send her a letter, and you have to understand that it may take a long time to get a reply.
The address is as follows:
- Framework Ent.
- 9057 Nemo St. Suite A
- Los Angeles, CA 90069
You'll need a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope). Here's a detailed explanation for U.S. based requests.
- You'll need two large envelopes - a 9x12 and an 11x13.
- You also need a piece of cardboard to use as a stiffener - the backing off a standard 8 1/2 x 11 notepad will do fine.
- Address the 9x12 envelope to yourself. PRINT clearly. Print 'Do Not Bend' on the outside of the 9x12 SASE in large clear letters, preferably in a corner of the envelope or along one edge; even better, make sure you print that on both sides of the envelope.
- Put stamps on the 9x12 envelope. On average, three stamps will do. As US postage rates may change, please refer to the USPS.
- Write a nice, polite request (typed or printed, not handwritten) for an autographed photo. Keep your letter nice and short. Make sure you sign your letter and attach the letter to the outside of the 9x12 SASE with a paperclip.
- Address the 11x13 envelope to Jorja Fox at Framework (see the address above). Again, PRINT clearly.
- Insert the stiffener (cardboard) into the 9x12 SASE (don't seal it, obviously), and insert the 9x12 (with its attached letter) into the 11x13 envelope; seal the 11x13 securely.
- Take it down to your local Post Office and mail it. It should only cost you three stamps worth, but again, check the rates at the USPS. Or just stick the appropriate postage on the large envelope yourself and put it in your mailbox.
- Wait anywhere from 6 weeks to 8 months (or possibly longer) for a reply.
Obviously, the above is for within the United States. For those of you outside the U.S., you'll have to check with your local Post Office for rates, conversions and shipping. You can also get a 9x12 padded envelope or a photograph mailer from your local Post Office instead of the above methodology.
Oh, and just a tip from someone who works with a tax professional: if you use one of those envelopes that has the little metal two-pronged clasp to hold the flap shut, after you've sealed the envelope place a piece of scotch tape over the clasp... believe it or not, that tiny piece of metal can get caught in the sorting machine at the Post Office, creating a jam.
Care and feeding of photos: When you get your photo, hit your local hardware store or art shop and get a frame kit for it (8" x 10"). Also pick up a piece of 8x10 UV glass - this will protect the photo from harmful UV-A and UV-B rays which will fade it and make it stick to the glass. Also make sure you keep the photo in a cool, dry place - humidity will warp and wrinkle the photo.
